      company for EURO60.0 million payable at closing and up to an additional
      EURO5.0 million subject to a performance based earn-out.


Ernst Teunissen, executive vice president and chief financial officer, said, "After our first quarter of fiscal 2012, we remain confident we will deliver against our operational expectations for the full year. We are updating our guidance for fiscal 2012 to reflect a few non-operational items. First, currency rates have moved unfavorably since we gave guidance in July 2011, which primarily impacts our revenue guidance in U.S. dollars. Second, we have repurchased a significant number of Vistaprint shares since July, which will benefit our earnings per share relative to our prior expectations. And finally, the costs associated with our recently announced revolving credit facility are now included in our guidance."

Financial Guidance as of October 27, 2011:

Vistaprint's financial guidance is as of October 27, 2011 and does not include estimates for our pending acquisition of Albumprinter, which has not yet closed. Based on current and anticipated levels of demand and recent foreign currency rates, the company expects the following financial results:

Revenue

  --  For the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2012, the company expects
      revenue of approximately $960 million to $1,010 million, or 18 percent
      to 24 percent growth year over year in reported terms and approximately
      18 percent to 24 percent in constant-currency terms. Constant-currency
      growth expectations assume a recent 30-day currency exchange rate for
      all currencies.

  --  For the second fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2011, the company
      expects revenue of approximately $270 million to $290 million, or 15
      percent to 24 percent growth year over year in reported terms and
      approximately 15 percent to 24 percent in constant-currency terms.


GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share

  --  For the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2012, the company expects GAAP
      diluted earnings per share of approximately $1.19 to $1.29, which
      assumes 40.8 million weighted average shares outstanding.

  --  For the quarter ending December 31, 2011, the company expects GAAP
      diluted earnings per share of approximately $0.55 to $0.65, which
      assumes 40.6 million weighted average shares outstanding.


Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income Per Diluted Share

  --  For the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2012, the company expects
      non-GAAP adjusted net income per diluted share of approximately $1.71 to
      $1.81, which excludes expected share-based compensation expense and its
      related tax effect of approximately $21.7 million, and assumes a
      non-GAAP diluted weighted average share count of approximately 41.2
      million shares.

  --  For the quarter ending December 31, 2011, the company expects non-GAAP
      adjusted net income per diluted share of approximately $0.68 to $0.78,
      which excludes expected share-based compensation expense and its related
      tax effect of approximately $5.5 million, and assumes a non-GAAP diluted
      weighted average share count of approximately 41.1 million shares.


Capital Expenditures

For the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2012, the company expects to make capital expenditures of approximately $60 million to $75 million. Planned capital investments are designed to support the planned growth of the business.

The foregoing guidance supersedes any guidance previously issued by the company. All such previous guidance should no longer be relied upon.

About non-GAAP financial measures

To supplement Vistaprint's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Vistaprint has used the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, rules: non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income per diluted share, free cash flow, and constant-currency revenue growth. The items excluded from the non-GAAP adjusted net income measurements are share-based compensation expense and its related tax effect. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment, purchases of intangible assets, and capitalization of software and website development costs. Constant-currency revenue growth is estimated by translating all non-U.S. dollar denominated revenue generated in the current period using the prior year period's average exchange rate for each currency to the U.S. dollar.

The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" included at the end of this release. The tables have more details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliation between these financial measures.

Vistaprint's management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information in assessing our performance and when forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also have facilitated management's internal comparisons to Vistaprint's historical performance and our competitors' operating results.

Management provides these non-GAAP financial measures as a courtesy to investors. However, to gain a more complete understanding of the company's financial performance, management does (and investors should) rely upon GAAP statements of operations and cash flow.
