CyberSource Corporation (Nasdaq: CYBS), a leading provider of electronic payment and risk management solutions, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2005.

In addition to financial results presented on a GAAP basis, the company has provided non-GAAP measures of operating expenses, net income and earnings per share, which are adjusted to exclude certain items that the company believes are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding of its 2005 financial results as compared to previous periods.

For purposes of this release, non-GAAP net income and earnings per share for the fourth quarter and full year 2005 exclude a $3.2 million tax benefit resulting from the reduction of a portion of the company's valuation allowance against its deferred tax asset. In addition, non-GAAP operating expenses, net income and earnings per share exclude approximately $300,000 in non-recurring acquisition expenses. Non-GAAP operating expenses, net income and earnings per share for the fourth quarter 2004 and full year 2004 exclude the reversal of $1.5 million of previously recorded restructuring charges relating to the company's lease of its Mountain View facility.

Revenue in the fourth quarter grew to $14.9 million, a 43% increase over the same period last year.

Net income for the fourth quarter was $5.2 million on a GAAP basis. Reported GAAP net income includes a reduction of the tax allowance of $3.2 million and non-recurring acquisition expenses of $300,000. Excluding these items, non-GAAP net income was $2.3 million compared to $1.2 million in the fourth quarter of the prior year, an increase of 93%. Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2004 excludes a restructuring charge reversal of $1.5 million.

GAAP earnings per share was $0.14 compared to $0.07 in the same period last year. Non-GAAP earnings per share was $0.06 compared to $0.03 in the same period last year.
