Recognized revenue means Total Revenue as reported in the Company's consolidated
financial statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form
10-K or Form 10-Q ("Public Company Financial Statements"). If, at any time, the
Company is not required to make periodic reports under the Exchange Act,
"Revenue" shall mean Total Revenue as set forth on regularly prepared quarterly
financial statements prepared by management ("Private Company Financial


Unless otherwise determined by the Board of Directors, "positive Free Cash Flow"
shall have been achieved when the sum of the Company's (A) Cash and Cash
Equivalents, (B) Short-Term Marketable Securities and (C) Long-Term Marketable
Securities ("Free Cash") as of the end of a fiscal quarter, as reported in the
Company's Public Company Financial Statements or Private Company Financial
Statements for such quarter, as applicable at such time, is greater than the
Company's Free Cash at the end of the preceding quarter.


For the purposes of this goal, an EdgeComputing customer is any customer paying
Akamai to deploy, execute, process and deliver at least one application on
Akamai's network. An EdgeComputing solution will generally involve executing
Java code on our network, and/or processing other forms of code, like ESI or
XSLT. The key differentiation from any other service or product is that
EdgeComputing is the service we sell to Akamaize an "application," not whole
sites or objects or streams (e.g., EdgeSuite and Streaming). An application
represents a tangible business function (e.g. verbs like locate dealer, vote,
choose wallpaper, register, broker, regulate entrance (waiting room)). For
example, would be an EdgeComputing deal (application: waiting room,
solution: ESI logic, not caching), while MTV is an EdgeSuite customer today
(WebSite, Solution: ESI for caching not logic). Every EdgeComputing contract
will also incorporate either EdgeSuite Delivery or EdgeSuite Enterprise Edition
to manage bandwidth and other features specifically associated with enabling the
identified application.
