Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains supplemental non-GAAP financial measures including the following: non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income per diluted ordinary share and non-GAAP unlevered free cash flow. The presentation of this supplemental non-GAAP financial information, which is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. In particular, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted ordinary share and unlevered free cash flow should not be considered as measurements of the Company's financial performance or liquidity under U.S. GAAP, as alternatives to income, operating income, cash flow from operations or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of the Company's liquidity. Adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted ordinary share and unlevered free cash flow have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as substitutes for, analysis of AVG's results of operations, including its cash flows, as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of the limitations of adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted ordinary share and unlevered free cash flow as financial measures are:

-- they do not reflect the Company's future requirements for capital

expenditure or contractual commitments, nor, in the case of the income

measures, do they reflect the actual cash contributions received from

customers;

-- except in the case of free cash flow, they do not reflect changes in, or

cash requirements for, the Company's working capital needs;

-- they do not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements

necessary to service interest or principal payments, on the Company's

debt;

-- although amortization and share-based compensation are non-cash charges,

the assets being amortized will often have to be replaced in the future

and such measures do not reflect any cash requirements for such

replacements; and

-- other companies in AVG's industry may calculate these measures

differently than AVG does, limiting their usefulness as comparative

measures.

Because of these limitations, investors should rely on AVG's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and treat the Company's non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental information only.

AVG is providing these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that such measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors about the Company's core operating results, primarily because the non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain expenses and other amounts that management does not consider to be indicative of the Company's core operating results or business outlook. AVG management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to the corresponding U.S. GAAP financial measures, in evaluating the Company's operating performance, in planning and forecasting future periods, in making decisions regarding business operations and allocation of resources, and in comparing the Company's performance against its historical performance.

For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, please see "Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to non-GAAP measures." All non-GAAP financial measures should be read in conjunction with the comparable information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
