Management Commentary

Growth

AYI.com showed growth in key areas during the first quarter of 2014, including:

    --  Revenues - On a sequential basis, total revenues for the first quarter
        of 2014 increased 10% from the fourth quarter of 2013, marking the
        second consecutive quarterly increase in revenues;
    --  Active subscribers - Active subscribers increased 16% during the first
        quarter of 2014, which was the second consecutive fiscal quarterly
        increase in active subscribers, and the highest subscriber count since
        March 2013; and
    --  New subscription transactions - New subscription transactions increased
        44% in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to the first quarter of
        2013, and 30% on a sequential basis for the first quarter of 2014 as
        compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

SNAP's Chief Executive Officer, Clifford Lerner, commented, "In the first quarter of 2014 we accomplished several goals: reducing expenses, improving user engagement, and continuing to grow our active subscriber base. Strong growth in subscription transactions will result in revenue recognition in the second quarter of 2014 and the remainder of 2014, as indicated by the 14% growth in bookings in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to the first quarter of 2013 and 18% on a sequential basis as compared to the fourth quarter of 2013."

Liquidity and Cash Flow

    --  In April 2014, we entered into Amendment No. 1 to our Business
        Development Agreement with Match.com, LLC, which extended the term an
        additional 90 days, and separately issued an unsecured promissory note,
        collectively resulting in an increase of $600,000 cash;
    --  Expense management - Employee headcount decreased 12% from 42 employees
        at December 31, 2013 to 37 employees at March 31, 2014, and we continue
        to manage expenses; and
    --  Break-even cash flow - We are targeting break-even cash flow for the
        third quarter of 2014.

SNAP's Chief Operating Officer, Alex Harrington, added, "With $600,000 of additional cash originating from the financing and Match.com, LLC renewal, events that occurred subsequent to the end of the first quarter of 2014, we believe we presently have sufficient cash on hand to operate the company through the third quarter of 2014, at which time we expect to break-even on cash flow from operations. However, we plan to explore growth capital fundraising opportunistically."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have provided in this release non-GAAP financial information including bookings and overall liquidity to supplement the consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results to assess operational performance and to determine our future capital requirements. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because it allows for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics we use in making operating decisions and because our investors and analysts use such information to help assess the health of our business.

Some limitations of bookings and overall liquidity as financial measures include that:

    --  Bookings does not reflect that we defer and recognize revenue from
        subscription fees and micro-transactions over the length of the
        subscription term;
    --  Overall liquidity does not reflect the Company's ability to convert
        restricted cash into cash and cash equivalents.
    --  Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate
        bookings and overall liquidity differently or choose not to calculate
        bookings and overall liquidity at all, which reduces their usefulness as
        comparative measures; and

Because of these limitations, you should consider bookings and overall liquidity along with other financial performance measures, including total revenues, deferred revenue, net income (loss), cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, net cash used in operating activities and our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.
