NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
Three Months Ended March 31, 2011

1.
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
Basis of Presentation of Interim Financial Statements
 
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of InnerWorkings, Inc. and subsidiaries (the Company) included herein have been prepared to conform to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) for interim financial information. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation of the accompanying unaudited financial statements have been included, and all adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. The operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year of 2011. These condensed interim consolidated financial statements and notes should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto as of December 31, 2010 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 2, 2011.
 
Foreign Currency Translation
 
The functional currency for the Company’s foreign operations is the local currency. Assets and liabilities of these operations are translated into U.S. currency at the rates of exchange at the balance sheet date. The resulting translation adjustments are included in accumulated other comprehensive income, a separate component of stockholders’ equity. Income and expense items are translated at average monthly rates of exchange. Realized gains and losses from foreign currency transactions were not material.
 
Reclassifications
 
Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

Goodwill and Other Intangibles
 
Goodwill represents the excess of purchase price and related costs over the value assigned to the net tangible and identifiable intangible assets of businesses acquired. In accordance with ASC 350, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other, goodwill is not amortized, but instead is tested for impairment annually, or more frequently if circumstances indicate a possible impairment may exist. The Company evaluates the recoverability of goodwill using a two-step impairment test. For goodwill impairment test purposes, the Company has one reporting unit. In the first step, the fair value for the Company is compared to its book value including goodwill. In the case that the fair value is less than the book value, a second step is performed which compares the implied fair value of goodwill to the book value of goodwill. The fair value for the goodwill is determined based on the difference between the fair value of the Company and the net fair values of the identifiable assets and liabilities. If the implied fair value of the goodwill is less than the book value, the difference is recognized as an impairment. Absent any interim indicators of impairment, the Company has elected to test for goodwill impairment during the fourth quarter of each year, and as a result of the 2010 analysis performed, no impairment charges were required.
 
    The following is a summary of the goodwill balance as of March 31:

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)—(Continued)

 
 In accordance with ASC 350, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other, the Company amortizes its intangible assets with finite lives over their respective estimated useful lives and reviews for impairment whenever impairment indicators exist. The Company’s intangible assets consist of customer lists, noncompete agreements, trade names and patents. The Company’s customer lists, which have an estimated weighted-average useful life of fourteen years, are being amortized using the economic life method. The Company’s noncompete agreements, trade names and patents are being amortized on the straight-line basis over their estimated weighted-average useful lives of approximately four years, thirteen years and ten years, respectively.

Acquisitions

During the first quarter of 2011, the Company acquired companies which provide procurement and production management of printed and promotional products.  The initial purchase price for these acquisitions totaled $4,538,480, net of cash acquired.  As a result of these acquisitions, the Company broadened its geographic resources and added sales executives and their corresponding production teams.  None of these acquisitions were material individually and in the aggregate.  Pro forma results of these acquisitions in 2011 have not been included as these acquisitions do no not have a material impact in the Company's financial statements.
 
The following table summarizes the estimated fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the date of acquisition.  At March 31, 2011, the purchase price allocations for these acquisitions are preliminary and subject to change as more detailed analysis are completed and additional information about their fair value of assets and liabilities becomes available.

In connection with certain of the Company’s acquisitions, contingent consideration is payable in cash upon the achievement of certain performance measures over future periods. For acquisitions prior to December 31, 2008, contingent consideration payments will be recorded as additional purchase price. The Company paid $500,000 related to these agreements in the three month period ended March 31, 2011. Total remaining potential contingent payments under these agreements amount to $15,311,667 as of March 31, 2011. For the acquisitions occurring subsequent to January 1, 2009, the Company has estimated and recorded potential contingent consideration as an increase in purchase price. This amount is $20,429,219, of which $13,816,647 is included in other long-term liabilities on the balance sheet and the remainder is included in accrued expenses.  Any future adjustments related to the acquisitions occurring after January 1, 2009 to the valuation of contingent consideration will be recorded in the Company’s results from operations.

 Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The Company accounts for its financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value within the financial statements in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosure (ASC 820). ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. In accordance with this interpretation, the Company has only applied ASC 820 with respect to its financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value within the financial statements. The Company’s investments in cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities are carried at fair value. See Notes 5 and 6 for additional information on fair value measurements.
 
 
Stock-Based Compensation
 
Since January 1, 2006, the Company has accounted for nonvested equity awards in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation -Stock Compensation. Compensation expense is based on the difference, if any, on the grant date between the estimated fair value of the Company stock and the exercise price of the options to purchase that stock. The compensation expense is then amortized over the vesting period of the stock options. All stock-based compensation expense is recorded net of an estimated forfeiture rate. The forfeiture rate is based upon historical activity and is analyzed annually and as actual forfeitures occur.
 
During the three month periods ended March 31, 2010 and 2011, the Company issued 240,722 and 45,004 options, respectively, to various employees of the Company. In addition, during the three month periods ended March 31, 2010 and 2011, the Company granted 309,674 and 79,976 restricted common shares, respectively, to employees. During the three month periods ended March 31, 2010 and 2011, 31,133 and 107,203 options were exercised and restricted common shares vested, respectively. Using the Black-Scholes option valuation model and the assumptions listed below, the Company recorded $561,018 and $941,362 in compensation expense for the three month periods ended March 31, 2010 and 2011, respectively.

Earnings Per Share
 
Basic earnings per common share is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average shares outstanding plus share equivalents that would arise from the exercise of stock options and vesting of restricted common shares. During the three months ended March 31, 2010 and 2011, respectively, 3,026,040 and 1,144,955 options and restricted common shares were excluded from the calculation as these options and restricted common shares were anti-dilutive. The computations of basic and diluted earnings per common share for the three months ended March 31, 2010 and 2011 are as follows:

Related Party
 
Investment in Echo Global Logistics, Inc.
 
In February 2005, the Company acquired 2,000,000 shares of common stock of Echo Global Logistics, Inc. (Echo), a technology enabled transportation and logistics business process outsourcing firm, for $125,000. Echo is a related party to the Company as a majority of the members of the Company’s Board of Directors have a direct and/or indirect ownership interest in Echo.
 
On September 25, 2009, Echo completed a one-for-two reverse stock split of all outstanding shares of its capital stock and immediately following, recapitalized all outstanding shares into newly issued shares of common stock on approximately a one-for-one basis. Echo recapitalized its outstanding capital stock in connection with its initial public offering.  
 
During the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company sold 85,500 of its shares of Echo’s common stock for $984,845 and recorded a gain on sale of investment of $979,501.  Beginning September 30, 2009, the Company has classified this investment as “available for sale” and has recorded it at fair value, which is determined based on quoted market prices (refer to Note 5 for additional information on these securities).   The gain on sale of investment is included in other income.  The Company’s investment in Echo was recorded at cost prior to the completion of Echo’s initial public offering.  At March 31, 2011, the Company owned 270,365 shares of Echo’s common stock.
 
Agreements and Services with Related Parties
 
In the ordinary course, the Company provides print procurement services to Echo. The total amount billed for such print procurement services during the three months ended March 31, 2010 and 2011 were approximately $7,500 and $20,000, respectively. In addition, Echo has provided transportation services to the Company. As consideration for these services, Echo billed the Company approximately $1.6 million and $1.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010 and 2011, respectively. The net amount payable to Echo at March 31, 2011 was $912,135.

Valuation of Equity Investments
 
As discussed in Note 1, Fair Value of Financial Instruments, the Company applies ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure (ASC 820), to its financial assets and liabilities.  At March 31, 2011, the Company’s financial assets relate to their available-for-sale securities and are included in short-term investments.
 
The Company has classified its investment in Echo as “available for sale” in accordance with ASC 320, Investments – Debt and Equity Securities in connection with Echo’s initial public offering. The investment is stated at fair value based on market prices, with any unrealized gains and losses included as a separate component of stockholders’ equity. Any realized gains and losses and dividends will be included in other income. At March 31, 2011, the Company’s investment in Echo, which has a cost basis of $56,134, was carried at fair value of $3,549,892. The unrealized gain of $3,493,758 is included in accumulated other comprehensive income, net of tax of $1,129,767.

Fair Value Measurement
 
ASC 820 includes a fair value hierarchy that is intended to increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and related disclosures. The fair value hierarchy is based on observable or unobservable inputs to valuation techniques that are used to measure fair value. Observable inputs reflect assumptions market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability based on market data obtained from independent sources while unobservable inputs reflect a reporting entity’s pricing based upon its own market assumptions.
 
The fair value hierarchy consists of the following three levels:
 
 
Level 1: Inputs are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 
Level 2: Inputs are quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in an active market, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, and inputs other than quoted prices that are observable and market-corroborated inputs, which are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data.

 
Level 3: Inputs that are derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or value drivers are unobservable.
 
The Company's potential contingent consideration payments relating to acquisitions occurring subsequent to January 1, 2009 are its only Level 3 liabilities as of March 31, 2011.  The fair value of these liabilities are estimated using a present value analysis as of March 31, 2011.  This analysis considers, among other items, the financial forecasts of future operating results of the seller, the probability of reaching the forecast and the associated discount rate.

Commitments and Contingencies

 The Company is currently in discussions with a former customer regarding an outstanding bankruptcy preference claim issued during the first quarter of 2011.  At this time, the Company is unable to determine the likelihood of an unfavorable outcome and is unable to estimate a reasonable range of loss, if any.  Management does not believe that the outcome of this proceeding or any other legal proceedings to which the Company is a party will have a materially adverse effect on its financial condition or operating results.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronoucements
 
In October 2009, the FASB issued update 2009-13, ASC 605, Revenue Recognition: Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements-a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force.   The revised guidance provides for two significant changes to existing multiple element arrangement guidance.  The first relates to the determination of when the individual deliverables included in a multiple-element arrangement may be treated as separate units of accounting.  This change is significant as it will likely result in the requirement to separate more deliverables within an arrangement, ultimately leading to less revenue deferral.  The second change modifies the manner in which the transaction consideration is allocated across the separately identifiable deliverables.  These changes are likely to result in earlier recognition of revenue for multiple-element arrangements than under previous guidance.  This standard is effective prospectively for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010.  The adoption of this standard did not have a material effect upon the Company's consolidated results of operations or financial condition.

Item 2.
Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
 
Overview
 
We are a leading provider of print and promotional procurement solutions to corporate clients across a wide range of industries. We combine the talent of our employees with our proprietary technology, extensive supplier base and domain expertise to procure, manage and deliver printed products as part of a comprehensive outsourced enterprise solution. Our technology is designed to capitalize on excess manufacturing capacity and other inefficiencies in the traditional print supply chain to obtain favorable pricing and to deliver high-quality products and services for our clients.
 
Our proprietary software applications and database, PPM4™, create a fully-integrated solution that stores, analyzes and tracks the production capabilities of our supplier network, as well as quote and price data for each bid we receive and print job we execute. As a result, we believe PPM4™ contains one of the largest independent repositories of equipment profiles and price data for print suppliers in the United States. We leverage our technology to match each print job with the supplier that is optimally suited to meet the client’s needs at a highly competitive price. Our procurement managers use PPM4™ to manage the print procurement process from end-to-end.
 
Through our supplier base of over 8,000 suppliers, we offer a full range of print, fulfillment and logistics services that allows us to procure printed products on virtually any substrate. The breadth of our product offerings and services and the depth of our supplier network enable us to fulfill all of the print procurement needs of our clients. By leveraging our technology platform, our clients are able to reduce overhead costs, redeploy internal resources and obtain favorable pricing and service terms. In addition, our ability to track individual transactions and provide customized reports detailing print procurement activity on an enterprise-wide basis provides our clients with greater visibility and control of their print expenditures.
 
We maintain sales offices in the United States, South America and the United Kingdom. We believe the opportunity exists to expand our business into new geographic markets. Our objective is to continue to increase our sales in the major print markets in the United States and Europe. We intend to hire or acquire more account executives within close proximity to these large markets. In addition, given that the print industry is a global business, we intend to continue to evaluate opportunities to access attractive markets outside the United States.
 
Revenue

We generate revenue through the sale of printed products to our clients. Our revenue was $145.2 million and $112.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively. Our revenue is generated from two different types of clients: enterprise and transactional. Enterprise jobs usually involve higher dollar amounts and volume than our transactional jobs. We categorize a client as an enterprise client if we have a contract with the client for the provision of printing services on a recurring basis; if the client has signed an open-ended purchase order or a series of related purchase orders; or if the client has enrolled in our e-stores program, which enables the client to make online purchases of printing services on a recurring basis. We categorize all other clients as transactional. We enter into contracts with our enterprise clients to provide some or a specific portion of their printed products on a recurring basis. Our contracts with enterprise clients generally have an open-ended term subject to termination by either party upon prior notice ranging from 90 days to twelve months.
 
Several of our enterprise clients have outsourced substantially all of their recurring print needs to us. We provide printed products to our transactional clients on an order-by-order basis.  During the three months ended March 31, 2011, enterprise clients accounted for 76% of our revenue, while transactional clients accounted for 24% of our revenue.
 
Our revenue consists of the prices paid by our clients for printed products. These prices, in turn, reflect the amounts charged to us by our suppliers plus our gross profit. Our gross profit margin, in the case of some of our enterprise clients, is fixed by contract or, in the case of transactional clients, is negotiated on a job-by-job basis. Once either type of client accepts our pricing terms, the selling price is established and we procure the product for our own account in order to re-sell it to the client. We take full title and risk of loss for the product upon shipment. The finished product is typically shipped directly from our supplier to a destination specified by our client. Upon shipment, our supplier invoices us for its production costs and we invoice our client.

            Our revenue from enterprise clients tends to generate lower gross profit margins than our revenue from transactional clients because the gross profit margins established in our contracts with large enterprise clients are generally lower than the gross profit margins we typically realize in our transactional business.

Cost of Goods Sold and Gross Profit
 
Our cost of goods sold consists primarily of the price at which we purchase products from our suppliers. Our selling price, including our gross profit, in the case of some of our enterprise jobs, is based on a fixed gross margin established by contract or, in the case of transactional jobs, is determined at the discretion of the account executive or procurement manager within predetermined parameters. Our gross margins on our enterprise jobs are typically lower than our gross margins on our transactional jobs. As a result, our cost of goods sold as a percentage of revenue for our enterprise jobs is typically higher than it is for our transactional jobs. Our gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 was $33.3 million and $26.9 million, or 23.0% of revenue and 24.0% of revenue, respectively.
 
Operating Expenses and Income from Operations
 
Our selling, general and administrative expenses consist of commissions paid to our account executives, compensation costs for our management team and procurement managers as well as compensation costs for our finance and support employees, public company expenses, corporate systems, legal and accounting, facilities and travel and entertainment expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue were 18.6% and 19.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.
 
We accrue for commissions when we recognize the related revenue. Some of our account executives receive a monthly draw to provide them with a more consistent income stream. The cash paid to our account executives in advance of commissions earned is reflected as a prepaid expense on our balance sheet. As our account executives earn commissions, a portion of their commission payment is withheld and offset against their prepaid commission balance, if any. Our prepaid commission balance, net of accrued earned commissions not yet paid, decreased to $2.9 million as of March 31, 2011 from $3.5 million as of December 31, 2010.
 
We agree to provide our clients with printed products that conform to the industry standard of a “commercially reasonable quality,” and our suppliers in turn agree to provide us with products of the same quality. In addition, the quotes we provide our clients include customary industry terms and conditions that limit the amount of our liability for product defects. Product defects have not had a material adverse effect on our results of operations.
 
Our income from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 was $3.9 million and $2.8 million, respectively.
 
Comparison of three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010
 
Revenue
 
Our revenue increased by $33.0 million, or 29.4%, from $112.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to $145.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in revenue reflects an increase in both enterprise and transactional business.  Our revenue from enterprise clients increased by $28.7 million, or 35.3%, from $81.4 million during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to $110.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in enterprise revenue is due to an increase in enterprise clients and the addition of our South American operations acquired during the first quarter of 2011.  Our revenue from transactional clients increased by $4.3 million, or 13.7%, from $30.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to $35.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011.  This increase in revenue is largely the result of our growth initiatives in the areas of an outbound call center and internet sales and efforts to hire or acquire experienced sales executives with existing books of business.
 
Cost of goods sold
 
Our cost of goods sold increased by $26.6 million, or 31.2%, from $85.3 million during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to $111.9 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase is a result of the revenue growth during the three months ended March 31, 2011. Our cost of goods sold as a percentage of revenue increased slightly from 76.0% during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to 77.0% during the three months ended March 31, 2011.
 
Gross Profit
 
Our gross profit as a percentage of revenue, which we refer to as gross margin, decreased from 24.0% during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to 23.0% during the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The decrease is primarily the result of a higher concentration of our business coming from enterprise clients, which generate lower gross margins, and the addition of the South American operations during the first quarter of 2011, which have lower gross margins than the United States operations.
 






 
12
 
 



Selling, general and administrative expenses
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $5.0 million, or 22.7%, from $22.0 million during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to $27.0 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011. As a percentage of revenue, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased from 19.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2010 to 18.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses is primarily due to incremental sales commission and cost of procurement staff to secure new enterprise accounts.  The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue is primarily the result of increased leverage from higher revenue.
 
Depreciation and amortization
 
Depreciation and amortization expense increased by $304,000, or 14.4%, from $2.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to $2.4 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in depreciation expense is primarily attributable to the purchase of computer hardware and software, equipment and furniture and fixtures as well as amortization of capitalized costs of computer software for internal use.  The increase in amortization expense is a result of the amortization of the intangible assets acquired in connection with our acquisitions.

  Income from operations
 
Income from operations increased by $1.1 million, or 39.3%, from $2.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to $3.9 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011. As a percentage of revenue, income from operations increased from 2.5% during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to 2.7% during the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in income from operations as a percentage of revenue is a result of our decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue.
 
Other income and expense
 
Other income decreased by $138,000, or 26.4%, from $525,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2010 to $387,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2011. The decrease is due to the increase in interest expense partially offset by a increase on the gain on sale of Echo shares.
 
Income tax expense
 
Income tax expense increased by $344,000, or 29.5%, from $1.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to $1.5 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011. Our effective tax rate was 35.0% and 35.1%  for the three month periods ended March 31, 2010 and 2011, respectively.
 
Net income
 
Net income increased by $622,000, or 28.7%, from $2.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2010 to $2.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011. Net income as a percentage of revenue was 1.9% during the three months ended March 31, 2010 and 2011.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
At March 31, 2011, we had $6.9 million of cash and cash equivalents and $3.6 million in available-for-sale securities.
 
    Operating Activities. Cash provided by operating activities primarily consists of net income adjusted for certain non-cash items, including depreciation and amortization, and the effect of changes in working capital and other activities. Cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $7.1 million and consisted of net income of $2.8 million, $2.9 million of non-cash items and $1.4 million provided by working capital and other activities. The most significant impact on working capital and other activities consisted of an increase in accounts receivable and unbilled revenue of $18.0 million and an increase in accounts payable of $22.6 million, offset by an increase in prepaid expenses and other of $7.8 million.
 
    Cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2010 was $4.2 million and consisted of net income of $2.2 million, $3.8 million of non-cash items, offset by $1.8 million used by working capital and other activities. The most significant impact on working capital and other activities consisted of an increase in accounts receivable and unbilled revenue of $11.8 million and an increase in accounts payable of $10.4 million, offset by a decrease in customer deposits of $2.1 million, a decrease in inventories of $1.9 million and a decrease in accrued expenses and other of $1.1 million. 

Investing Activities. Cash used in investing activities in the three months ended March 31, 2011 of $6.1 million was attributable to the proceeds on sale of Echo shares of $985,000, offset by capital expenditures of $1.8 million and $5.3 million in payments made in connection with acquisitions.
 

 
13
 
 

    Cash provided by investing activities in the three months ended March 31, 2010 of $191,000 was attributable to the proceeds on sale of marketable securities of $2.7 million and proceeds on the sale of shares of Echo Global Logistics, Inc. of $727,000, offset by capital expenditures of $1.4 million, a $1,725,000 payment to seller and $59,000 in payments made in connection with acquisitions.
 
Financing Activities. Cash provided by financing activities in the three months ended March 31, 2011 of $520,000 was primarily attributable to the $500,000 of borrowings under the revolving credit facility and $27,000 related to the issuance of shares made in connection with stock option exercises.
 
Cash provided by financing activities in the three months ended March 31, 2010 of $76,000 was primarily attributable to the $92,000 of borrowings under the revolving credit facility, offset by $16,000 in principal payments made on capital leases.
 
Although we can provide no assurances, we believe that our available cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and amounts available under our revolving credit facility will be sufficient to meet our working capital and operating expenditure requirements for the foreseeable future. Thereafter, we may find it necessary to obtain additional equity or debt financing. In the event additional financing is required, we may not be able to raise it on acceptable terms or at all.
 
Off-Balance Sheet Obligations
 
We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.
 
Contractual Obligations
 
With the exception of the contingent consideration in connection with our business acquisitions discussed in Note 1 in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements, there have been no material changes outside the normal course of business in the contractual obligations disclosed in Item 7 to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010, under the caption “Contractual Obligations.”
 
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
 
As of March 31, 2011, there were no material changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates disclosed in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
In October 2009, the FASB issued update 2009-13, ASC 605, Revenue Recognition: Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements-a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force.   The revised guidance provides for two significant changes to existing multiple element arrangement guidance.  The first relates to the determination of when the individual deliverables included in a multiple-element arrangement may be treated as separate units of accounting.  This change is significant as it will likely result in the requirement to separate more deliverables within an arrangement, ultimately leading to less revenue deferral.  The second change modifies the manner in which the transaction consideration is allocated across the separately identifiable deliverables.  These changes are likely to result in earlier recognition of revenue for multiple-element arrangements than under previous guidance.  This standard is effective prospectively for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010.  The adoption of this standard did not have a material effect upon our consolidated results of operations or financial condition.

Item 3.            Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk
 
Commodity Risk
 
We are dependent upon the availability of paper, and paper prices represent a substantial portion of the cost of our products. The supply and price of paper depend on a variety of factors over which we have no control, including environmental and conservation regulations, natural disasters and weather. We believe a 10% increase in the price of paper would not have a significant effect on our consolidated statements of income or cash flows, as these costs are generally passed through to our clients.
 
Interest Rate Risk
 
We have exposure to changes in interest rates on our revolving credit facility. Interest is payable at the adjusted LIBOR rate or the alternate base. Assuming our $100.0 million revolving credit facility was fully drawn, a 1.0% increase in the interest rate would increase our annual interest expense by $1.0 million. The terms of the revolving credit facility include various covenants, including covenants that require us to maintain a maximum leverage ratio and a minimum interest coverage ratio. Outstanding borrowings may be used for general corporate and working capital purposes in the ordinary course of business, for permitted acquisitions, for capital expenditures and for restricted payments, including the repurchase of shares of our common stock, as permitted pursuant to the terms of the revolving credit facility.
 
Our interest income is sensitive to changes in the general level of U.S. interest rates, in particular because all of our investments are in cash equivalents and marketable securities.
 
Foreign Currency Risk
 
A portion of our sales and earnings are attributable to operations conducted outside of the U.S. The U.S. dollar value of sales and earnings of these operations varies with currency exchange rate fluctuations. We believe a 10% fluctuation in the currency exchange rate would not have a significant effect on our consolidated statements of income or cash flows.
 
We do not use derivative financial instruments.

Item 4.            Controls and Procedures
 
Our management, with the participation of our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2011. The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Based on the evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2011, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that, as of such date, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.

 No change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) occurred during the first quarter ended March 31, 2011 that has materially affected or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
