Forward Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements generally relate to future events or our future financial or operating performance. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “could,” “intends,” “target,” “projects,” “contemplates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential” or “continue” or the negative of these words or other similar terms or expressions that concern our expectations, strategy, plans or intentions. Forward-looking statements in this press release include, but are not limited to: our expectations regarding our business and marketing plans, including the expectation that more than 57 million unique visitors will to come to Trulia in the month of July; our expectations regarding our revenue and Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2014 and full year 2014; and our expectations regarding the proposed merger with Zillow. Our expectations and beliefs regarding these matters may not materialize, and actual results in future periods are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These risks include the possibility that we do not effectively execute on our national marketing campaign, and that our national marketing campaign does not increase the number of consumers, subscribers and advertisers on our marketplace; the housing market weakens; consumers, subscribers and advertisers do not continue to use our marketplace; we experience expenses that exceed our expectations; the proposed merger does not close due to the failure to obtain shareholder or regulatory approval or otherwise; and the disruption to our business caused by the merger is greater than expected and makes it difficult to maintain certain strategic relationships. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are also subject to other risks and uncertainties, including those more fully described in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2014 that was filed on May 2, 2014. The forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to Trulia as of the date hereof, and Trulia disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, except as required by law.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures: Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) and Pro Forma Financial Information
Trulia’s stated results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss attributable to common stockholders. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net loss attributable to common stockholders adjusted to exclude interest income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, income taxes, acquisition costs, restructuring costs, and compensation paid in stock. We define adjusted net loss attributable to common stockholders as net loss attributable to common stockholders adjusted to exclude acquisition costs, restructuring costs, and compensation paid in stock. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss attributable to common stockholders exclude these items as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business, and in the case of compensation paid in stock, can be difficult to predict. Trulia believes these adjustments provide useful comparative information to investors. Trulia also considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important because they provide useful measures of the operating performance of Trulia and are used by Trulia’s management for that purpose. In addition, investors often use similar measures to evaluate the operating performance of a company. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding Trulia’s operating results. The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
For future periods, Trulia is unable to provide a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income/(loss) as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, the amounts of interest income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, compensation paid in stock, and certain other infrequently occurring items, such as acquisition related costs and restructuring costs, that may be incurred in the future.
Additional Information and Where to Find It
In connection with the proposed transaction, Zillow and Trulia will file a joint proxy statement/prospectus with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the new holding company will file a Registration Statement on Form S-4 with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
