Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and Xoom's scheduled conference call contain 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 relating to, among other things, expectations, plans, prospects and financial results for Xoom, including, but not limited to, its expectations regarding its market demand, future earnings, revenue and financial and operating metrics. These forward-looking statements are based upon the current expectations and beliefs of Xoom's management as of the date of this press release and conference call, and are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements made in this press release and during the conference call are based on information available to Xoom as of the date thereof, and Xoom disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

In particular, the following factors, among others, could cause results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements: the evolving nature of the industry in which Xoom operates; its failure to attract new customers or retain existing customers; economic, political or regulatory factors beyond its control, in the U.S. or in countries to which its customers transfer money; fluctuations in foreign exchange rates; competitive pricing and marketing strategies by competitors; the adoption of competing technologies that supplant its services; the use of its services for illegal or improper purposes; the failure of partners to disburse funds according to Xoom's instructions; its ability to contract for third-party services on commercially reasonable terms; the maintenance of its payment network on terms consistent with those currently in place or newly adopted regulations in the U.S or in countries to which its customers transfer money; increases in transaction processing fees; declines in customer confidence in its business or in money transfer providers generally; its ability to protect its intellectual property; the adoption of smartphones and mobile devices to access information on the Internet and use of its services; potential breaches of its security systems; and other risks and uncertainties.

For a detailed discussion of these and other cautionary statements, please refer to the risk factors discussed in filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including but not limited to Xoom's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2013, and any subsequently filed reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K. All documents are available through the SEC's Electronic Data Gathering Analysis and Retrieval system ("EDGAR") at www.sec.gov or Xoom's website at www.xoom.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Xoom's stated results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings/(loss) per share. Adjusted EBITDA excludes provision for income taxes, interest expense, interest income, depreciation and amortization, and expenses related to stock-based compensation expense. Non-GAAP net income excludes expenses related to stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP net income exclude these expenses as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business, and in the case of stock-based compensation, can be difficult to predict. Xoom believes these adjustments provide useful comparative information to investors.

Xoom considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important because they provide useful measures of its operating performance and are used by its management for that purpose. In addition, investors often use measures such as these to evaluate the operating performance of a company. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding Xoom'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 non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
