Other Information
Travelzoo Inc.'s financial results have been adjusted to include the financial results of Asia Pacific for the current and prior periods. In addition, certain prior period statement of operations amounts have been reclassified to conform to current period presentation primarily due to the allocation of facilities costs and separate disclosure of product development costs. Management presents year-over-year revenue percentage rates of change in constant currencies, calculated using prior-year period foreign currency rates on current-year period non-US revenue, as it believes this is a useful metric that facilitates comparison to historical performance.

Conference Call
Travelzoo will host a conference call to discuss second quarter results at 11:00 a.m. ET today. Please visit http://www.travelzoo.com/earnings to
