Adjusted EBITDA was US$54.9 million, compared to US$52.0 million of adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2009 was US$10.4 million, compared to US$15.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. The company reported a net loss of (US$5.4) million, or (US$0.10) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to a fourth quarter 2008 net loss of (US$0.3) million, or (US$0.01) per share.

Leveraged free cash flow* in 2009 was US$50.1 million, up significantly compared to (US$90.6) million in the prior year.

We are pleased with the sequential revenue growth in the fourth quarter, particularly in our Hosting segment."
