Item 4.02. Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.
On February 19, 2010, the management of Digital River, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Digital River” or “Company”) concluded, and the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors concurred, that the previously issued condensed consolidated financial statements of Digital River covering the period ended March 31, 2009 contain an incorrect accounting entry.
In performing the annual review of the financial statements, management identified that it had incorrectly recorded the write-off of unamortized debt financing costs related to the repurchase of convertible notes on January 2, 2009. After the Company announced preliminary full year financial results on January 28, 2010, management determined that a $5.2 million non-cash expense for debt financing costs ($3.3 million net of tax) was incorrectly charged to additional paid-in capital and should have been expensed to other non-operating expense. Year-to-date results for all subsequent periods should have also reflected this non-operating expense.
As noted in Item 7 and Item 8 of the Company’s 2009 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 23, 2010, the Company revised the unaudited results it previously released on January 28, 2010. The impact of this change was a reduction in both the first quarter and the full year GAAP earnings of $3.3 million after tax, or $0.09 per diluted share. The first quarter 2009 GAAP earnings were revised to $13.3 million, or $0.36 per diluted share. The full year 2009 GAAP earnings were reduced to $49.8 million, or $1.32 per diluted share. There was no change to previously released non-GAAP earnings.
An unaudited table presenting the effects of the revisions to the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of income for the three months ended March 31, 2009 is set forth below:

(1)   Gross profit is calculated as revenue less direct cost of services and network and infrastructure expenses and excludes depreciation and amortization expense.



(2)   The Company reported net income of $16.6 million, or $0.45 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2009, in its first quarter 2009 Form 10-Q filed on May 8, 2009. This former number compares with the corrected net income of $13.3 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2009, as presented above. In performing its detailed review of the financial statements and notes at year-end, management identified an additional adjustment associated with its January 2, 2009, convertible note repurchase. After the Company issued its year-end 2009 press release, it determined that a $5.2 million non-cash expense for debt financing costs ($3.3 million net of tax), previously deferred and amortized over the period of the convertible note, should have been expensed to earnings in conjunction with the convertible note repurchase. The impact of the convertible note repurchase on diluted earnings per share was anti-dilutive and has been excluded as a result.
Digital River’s principal financial officer and the Audit Committee discussed these matters with Digital River’s independent registered accounting firm.
