eBay Announces Q1-06 Earnings (cont.)
Consolidated Operating Results
This is the first quarter that eBay’s financial results include stock-based compensation expenses from the
adoption of the new accounting standard, FAS 123(R). eBay’s financial results for prior periods have not been
restated for FAS 123(R). In addition, eBay continues to disclose its non-GAAP (previously referred to as “pro
forma”) financial measures, which in each case exclude the stock-based compensation expense as well as stock
option related payroll taxes, amortization of acquired intangible assets and the income taxes related to these
items.
GAAP Operating Income — Operating income decreased 4% year over year to $322.6 million, or 23% of net
revenues. Excluding stock-based compensation of $83.8 million, operating income would have increased 21%
year over year to $406.4 million or 29% of net revenues.
Non-GAAP Operating Income — Non-GAAP operating income increased 25% year over year to $460.7
million, or 33% of net revenues.
GAAP Net Income — Net income decreased 3% year over year to $248.3 million, or $0.17 per diluted share.
Excluding stock-based compensation of $58.3 million (net of tax effects), or $0.04 per diluted share, net income
would have increased 20% year over year to $306.6 million, or $0.21 per diluted share.
Non-GAAP Net Income — Non-GAAP net income increased 24% year over year to $342.9 million, or $0.24
per diluted share.
Operating and Free Cash Flows — GAAP operating cash flows increased 18% year over year to $584.2 million.
Free cash flows, representing operating cash flows less net purchases of property and equipment of $133.6
million, increased 56% year over year to $450.6 million.
Consolidated Financial and Operating Summary
eBay reported record consolidated net revenues of $1.390 billion in Q1-06, representing a growth rate of 35%
year over year which is primarily due to continued Marketplaces and PayPal growth. Net revenues were
negatively impacted by foreign currency translation of approximately $50.2 million in Q1-06 as compared to
Q1-05. On a sequential basis, consolidated net revenues were positively impacted by foreign currency
translation in Q1-06 by approximately $8.3 million.
GAAP gross profit was $1.112 billion in Q1-06, or 80% of net revenues, lower than the 82% reported in Q1-05.
Excluding stock-based compensation of $9.5 million, gross profit would have been $1.121 billion in Q1-06, or
81% of net revenues. Gross profit declined slightly due to the inclusion of telecommunications costs related to
eBay’s Communications segment in Q1-06.
GAAP sales and marketing expenses totaled $400.6 million, or 29% of net revenues, higher than the 26%
reported in Q1-05. Excluding stock-based compensation of $24.7 million, sales and marketing expenses totaled
$375.8 million in Q1-06, or 27% of net revenues. Sales and marketing expenses increased primarily due to the
inclusion of Shopping.com in Q1-06.

eBay Announces Q1-06 Earnings (cont.)
GAAP product development expenses totaled $119.1 million, or 9% of net revenues, up from the 7% reported
in Q1-05. Excluding stock-based compensation of $20.7 million, product development expenses totaled $98.4
million in Q1-06, or 7% of net revenues, consistent with the 7% reported in Q1-05.
GAAP general and administrative costs totaled $215.4 million, or 15% of net revenues, up from the 13%
reported in Q1-05. Excluding stock-based compensation of $28.9 million, general and administrative costs
totaled $186.4 million in Q1-06, or 13% of net revenues, consistent with the 13% reported in Q1-05.
GAAP operating income totaled $322.6 million during Q1-06, a 4% decrease over the $335.6 million reported
in Q1-05. Excluding stock-based compensation of $83.8 million, operating income totaled $406.4 million, a
21% increase over the $335.6 million reported in Q1-05. On a non-GAAP basis, operating income totaled
$460.7 million, a 25% increase over the $367.4 million reported in Q1-05. On a year-over-year basis, both
GAAP and non-GAAP Q1-06 operating income were negatively impacted by foreign currency translation of
approximately $25.1 million in Q1-06. On a sequential basis, GAAP operating income was positively impacted
by foreign currency translation in Q1-06 of approximately $2.4 million.
Interest and other income, net, totaled $25.8 million in Q1-06, up from the $22.4 million reported in Q1-05. The
increase was primarily due to higher interest rates and higher cash and investments balances.
The GAAP effective tax rate for Q1-06 was 29%, an increase from 28% for Q1-05, and consistent with 29% for
Q4-05. The non-GAAP effective tax rate in Q1-06 was 29%, consistent with 29% for Q1-05 and an increase
from 28% for Q4-05. The higher effective tax rate for Q1-06 as compared to Q1-05 results primarily from
shifts in the company’s geographic mix of business.
The Company reported $584.2 million in operating cash flows and $133.6 million of net purchases of property
and equipment in Q1-06, resulting in free cash flows of $450.6 million. The company’s cash, cash equivalents,
and investments totaled nearly $3.5 billion at the end of Q1-06.
Business Outlook
The following updated guidance reflects current business trends and assumed exchange rates. This guidance is
based on a weighted average exchange rate of US $1.20 per Euro, which is consistent with prior guidance. The
guidance includes the estimated impact of expensing stock options from the adoption of FAS 123(R), which is
reflected in eBay’s operating results beginning in Q1-06.
Net Revenues — eBay expects consolidated net revenues for 2006 to be in the range of $5.700 billion to $5.900
billion. eBay expects consolidated net revenues to be in the range of $1.370 to $1.415 billion in Q2-06.
GAAP Diluted EPS — eBay estimates GAAP earnings per diluted share for the full year 2006 to be in the range
of $0.65 to $0.71. eBay estimates GAAP earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $0.14 to $0.16 in Q2-
06. The estimated GAAP earnings per diluted share includes the estimated impact of stock-based compensation
expense from the adoption of FAS 123(R) of approximately $0.16 to $0.17 for the full year ending December
31, 2006 and $0.04 to $0.05 for each of the quarters in the year ending December 31, 2006.

eBay Announces Q1-06 Earnings (cont.)
Non-GAAP Diluted EPS — eBay estimates non-GAAP earnings per diluted share for the full year 2006 to be in
the range of $0.96 to $1.01. eBay estimates non-GAAP earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $0.22 to
$0.23 in Q2-06.
Quarterly Conference Call
eBay will host a conference call to discuss first quarter results at 2 pm Pacific Time today. A live webcast of the
conference call can be accessed through the company’s Investor Relations website at http://investor.ebay.com.
In addition, an archive of the webcast will be accessible through the same link.
Non-GAAP Measures
To supplement the company’s consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, eBay uses
non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-
GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating
margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, and free cash flows as well as GAAP amounts excluding the impact of
stock-based compensation expenses. eBay makes reference to measures of operating income, gross profit,
certain expenses (including sales and marketing, product development, general and administrative), net income
and earnings per share for Q1-06, which exclude stock-based compensation to allow for a better comparison of
results in the current period to those in prior periods that did not include FAS 123(R) stock-based compensation.
eBay’s reference to these measures should be considered in addition to results that are prepared under current
accounting standards but should not be considered a substitute for results that are presented as consistent with
GAAP. These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors’ overall understanding of the company’s
current financial performance and the company’s prospects for the future and provide further information for
comparative information due the adoption of the new accounting standard FAS 123(R). Specifically, the
company believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by
excluding certain expenses, gains and losses, net purchases of property and equipment, that may not be
indicative of its core operating results and business outlook.
In addition, because eBay has historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, the company believes
the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in the company’s financial reporting. The company
believes the non-GAAP measures that exclude stock-based compensation enhance the comparability of results
against prior periods. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with
generally accepted accounting principles, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP
results. Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release
can be found in the financial tables included on pages 8, 9 and 10 of this press release. For non-GAAP
measures that solely exclude stock-based compensation, the reconciliation to GAAP is presented in narrative
form in this release when the non-GAAP measure is referenced.

____________
* Please note that the sum of the quarters may not total to the full year EPS because the quarterly EPS is calculated using the respective results and
weighted average shares for each quarter, and the full year EPS is calculated using the results and weighted average shares for the full year.
(a) GAAP guidance includes the estimated impact of expensing stock option under FAS 123(R) “Share-Based Payment.” The new accounting
standard is expected to reduce diluted GAAP EPS by approximately $0.16-$0.17 for the full year ending December 31, 2006 and $0.04-$0.05
for each of the quarters in the year ending December 31, 2006.
(b) Non-GAAP guidance reflects estimated quarterly adjustments to exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets of approximately $45-
$55 million, payroll taxes on employee stock options of approximately $5-$10 million, stock-based compensation of approximately $85-$100
million, which includes the estimated impact of expensing stock options due to the adoption of FAS 123(R) “Share-Based Payment”, and other
adjustments estimated to result in an operating margin adjustment of approximately 10% for each of the quarters in the year ending December
31, 2006. Net of tax, the above non-GAAP items are estimated to result in a $0.07-$0.08 per diluted share adjustment for each of the quarters in
the year ending December 31, 2006.
