Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Financial Statements and Exhibits

Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On October 25, 2012, Acxiom Corporation (the "Company") issued a press release announcing the results of its financial performance for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. The Company will hold a conference call at 4:00 p.m. CDT today to discuss this information further. Interested parties are invited to listen to the call, which will be broadcast via the Internet at The press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein.

The Company's press release and other communications from time to time include certain non-GAAP financial measures. A "non-GAAP financial measure" is defined as a numerical measure of a company's financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes (or includes) amounts that are included in (or excluded from) the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the Company's financial statements.

The attached press release includes non-GAAP measures of income from operations and diluted earnings per share attributable to Acxiom shareholders. The non-GAAP measures exclude the impact of gains, losses and other items. The Company's management believes that these non-GAAP measures are meaningful since they show the Company's financial performance without regard to certain items that are unusual in nature and the non-GAAP measures are helpful in understanding the Company's earnings. The non-GAAP measures are reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures of income from operations and diluted earnings per share attributable to Acxiom shareholders in a schedule to the press release.

The attached press release also includes a non-GAAP measure of free cash flow available to equity. Free cash flow available to equity is defined as operating cash flow less cash used by investing activities (excluding the impact of cash paid in acquisitions), less required payments of debt. The Company's management believes that this measure of free cash flow available to equity is meaningful since it represents the amount of money available for the Company's discretionary spending after funding all required obligations including scheduled debt payments, and it therefore provides a useful measure of liquidity for assessing the amount of cash available for general corporate and strategic purposes. Free cash flow available to equity is reconciled to operating cash flow, the nearest comparable GAAP measure, in a schedule to the press release.

The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for measures of financial performance or liquidity prepared in accordance with GAAP.
