TEMPE, Ariz. -- Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: LLNW - News) today reported first quarter 2009 financial results.

"Limelight Networks achieved solid year-over-year revenue growth during the first quarter. We continued to see strong demand for our core content delivery and storage services, and were pleased with the market reception for LimelightSITE and a favorable ruling in our patent litigation with Akamai. We believe that continued Internet adoption presents us with attractive growth opportunities and that our eight years of innovation, our global scale and our network-based architecture are the optimal solution for publishers, enterprises, and governments advancing their online presence," commented Jeff Lunsford, chairman and chief executive officer, Limelight Networks, Inc.

Financial Highlights

For the first quarter of 2009, the company reported revenue of $33.2 million, up 10% percent from $30.2 million in the same period last year, and EBITDA, adjusted for share-based compensation, litigation and the reversal of a previously recorded damage accrual, of $4.7 million.

Non-GAAP net loss, before stock based compensation, litigation costs, and reversal of a previously recorded damage accrual, was $2.1 million or 2 cents per basic share. GAAP net earnings were $55.1 million, or 66 cents per basic share and 64 cents on a fully-diluted basis. These earnings include the reversal of a previously recorded damage accrual of $66 million as a result of the Massachusetts Federal District Court order finding that we do not infringe the Akamai 703 patent.

Capital purchases incurred were $4.6 million. The Company ended the quarter with no bank debt and approximately $162 million in cash and short-term marketable securities. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP net income is included in the attached tables.
