Free Cash Flow

Overview of Q4 2009 OI&E and FX
In Interest Income and Other, Net, we recognized net income of $88M for Q4
• • In Q4, the interest income earned on our investments was $67M and we recognized $27M in realized gains. As a result of foreign exchange rates moving closer to the strike prices of our options in Q4 relative to Q3, we expensed only $8M related to our FX cash flow hedging program vs. $67M in Q3. Before hedging, the weaker USD relative to other currencies during the quarter had a positive impact of $112M on revenue compared to Q3 and a positive impact of $196M compared to Q4’08. In addition to the positive impact on revenue quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year due to more favorable FX rates, our cash flow FX hedging programs allowed us to recognize a benefit of approximately $8M to international revenue this quarter.
