Significant Financing Developments

On March 20, 2012, the Company announced the commencement of a cash tender offer to purchase the maximum aggregate principal amount of our outstanding $300.0 million Initial Aggregate Principal Amount of 12%/14% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2017 (“Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes”) for $26.0 million. The Offer to Purchase included a purchase price range of $270 to $300 per $1,000 principal amount of the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes plus an amount in cash in lieu of the accrued and unpaid interest calculated at a rate of 12% per annum on the aggregate principal amount of the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes from March 31, 2012 to, but not including, the payment date. The cash tender offer expired on April 19, 2012. On April 19, 2012, under the terms and conditions of the Offer to Purchase, the Company utilized cash on hand of $26.5 million to repurchase $98.2 million aggregate principal amount of Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes, representing 27% of par value ("Note Repurchases"). The Note Repurchases have been accounted for as an extinguishment of debt resulting in a non-cash, pre-tax gain of $70.8 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, consisting of the difference between the par value and purchase price of the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes, offset by fees associated with the Note Repurchases. The following table provides the calculation of the net gain on Note Repurchases for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012:

On March 9, 2012, RHDI, Dex Media East, Inc. ("DME Inc.") and Dex Media West, Inc. ("DMW Inc.") each entered into the First Amendment (the "Amendments") to the amended and restated RHDI credit facility (“RHDI Amended and Restated Credit Facility”), the amended and restated DME Inc. credit facility (“Dex Media East Amended and Restated Credit Facility”) and the amended and restated DMW Inc. credit facility (“Dex Media West Amended and Restated Credit Facility”) (collectively, the "Credit Facilities"), respectively, with certain financial institutions. The Amendments permit RHDI, DME Inc. and DMW Inc. to make open market repurchases and retire loans under their respective Credit Facilities at a discount to par through December 31, 2013, provided that such discount is acceptable to those lenders who choose to participate. Repurchases may be made with existing cash on hand, subject to certain restrictions and terms noted in the Amendments. RHDI, DME Inc. and DMW Inc. are under no obligation to make such repurchases at any time throughout the term noted in the Amendments.

On March 14, 2012, under the terms and conditions of the Amendments, RHDI commenced an offer to utilize up to $40 million to repurchase loans under the RHDI Amended and Restated Credit Facility at a price of 41.5% to 45.5% of par, DME Inc. commenced an offer to utilize up to $12.5 million to repurchase loans under the Dex Media East Amended and Restated Credit Facility at a price of 50.5% to 54.5% of par and DMW Inc. commenced an offer to utilize up to $23.5 million to repurchase loans under the Dex Media West Amended and Restated Credit Facility at a price of 60.0% to 64.0% of par. The offers expired on March 21, 2012. On March 23, 2012, RHDI, DME Inc. and DMW Inc. collectively utilized cash on hand of $69.5 million to repurchase loans under the Credit Facilities of $142.1 million ("Credit Facility Repurchases"). The Credit Facility Repurchases have been accounted for as an extinguishment of debt resulting in a non-cash, pre-tax gain of $68.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2012, consisting of the difference between the par value and purchase price of the Credit Facilities, offset by accelerated amortization of fair value adjustments to our Credit Facilities that were recognized in conjunction with our adoption of fresh start accounting and fees associated with the Credit Facility Repurchases. The following table provides detail of the Credit Facility Repurchases and the calculation of the net gain on Credit Facility Repurchases for the six months ended June 30, 2012:

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies


Identifiable Intangible Assets

The Company reviews the carrying value of definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets whenever events or circumstances indicate that their carrying amount may not be recoverable. The Company reviewed the following information, estimates and assumptions during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 to determine if the carrying amounts of our definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets were recoverable:
Historical financial information, including revenue, profit margins, customer attrition data and price premiums enjoyed relative to competing independent publishers;
Long-term financial projections, including, but not limited to, revenue trends and profit margin trends;
Intangible asset and other long-lived asset carrying values and any changes in current and future use;
Trading values of our debt and equity securities; and
Other Company-specific information.


7


Based on our evaluation during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, we concluded that the carrying amounts of our definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets were recoverable.

Amortization expense related to the Company’s intangible assets was $87.4 million and $45.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $174.7 million and $83.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Our intangible assets and their respective book values at June 30, 2012 are shown in the following table:

The Company evaluates the remaining useful lives of definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets whenever events or circumstances indicate that a revision to the remaining period of amortization is warranted. If the estimated remaining useful lives change, the remaining carrying amount of the intangible assets and other long-lived assets would be amortized prospectively over that revised remaining useful life. The Company evaluated the remaining useful lives of its definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets during the first quarter 2012 by considering, among other things, the effects of obsolescence, demand, competition, which takes into consideration the price premium benefit we have over competing independent publishers in our markets as a result of directory services agreements acquired in prior acquisitions, and other economic factors, including the stability of the industry in which we operate, known technological advances, legislative actions that result in an uncertain or changing regulatory environment, and expected changes in distribution channels. Based on our evaluation of these factors during the first quarter 2012, the Company determined that the estimated useful lives of our directory services agreements, local and national customer relationships and tradenames and trademarks no longer reflected the period they are expected to contribute to future cash flows. Therefore, the Company reduced the estimated useful lives of these intangible assets as shown in the following table:

These intangible assets are being amortized under the income forecast method, which assumes the value derived from these intangible assets is greater in the earlier years and steadily declines over time.

The weighted average useful lives of technology, advertising commitments and other remained at seven years. The Company performed the same evaluation of the remaining useful lives of its definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and determined that the weighted average useful lives presented above continue to be deemed appropriate. The combined weighted average useful life of our intangible assets at June 30, 2012 is nine years. As a result of reducing the estimated useful lives of the intangible assets noted above, the Company expects an increase in amortization expense of $161.6 million and total amortization expense of $349.4 million for 2012. Amortization expense for all intangible assets for the five succeeding years is estimated to be approximately $301.6 million, $257.5 million, $217.1 million, $210.4 million and $206.2 million, respectively.
 
During the three months ended June 30, 2011, the Company concluded there were indicators of impairment and as a result, we performed an impairment test of our goodwill and an impairment recoverability test of our definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets. The testing results of our definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets indicated they were recoverable and thus no impairment test was required. Based upon the testing results of our goodwill, we determined that the remaining goodwill assigned to each of our reporting units was fully impaired and thus recognized an aggregate goodwill impairment charge of $801.1 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011. Please refer to our Quarterly Report on From 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2011 for additional information including estimates and assumptions used in our impairment testing.


8


If industry and local business conditions in our markets deteriorate in excess of current estimates, potentially resulting in further declines in advertising sales and operating results, and / or if the trading value of our debt and equity securities continue to decline significantly, we will be required to assess the recoverability and useful lives of our intangible assets and other long-lived assets. These factors, including changes to assumptions used in our impairment analysis as a result of these factors, could result in future impairment charges, a reduction of remaining useful lives associated with our intangible assets and other long-lived assets and acceleration of amortization expense.

Interest Expense

In conjunction with our adoption of fresh start accounting and reporting on February 1, 2010 ("Fresh Start Reporting Date"), an adjustment was established to record our outstanding debt at fair value on the Fresh Start Reporting Date. This fair value adjustment will be amortized as an increase to interest expense over the remaining term of the respective debt agreements using the effective interest method and does not impact future scheduled interest or principal payments. Amortization of the fair value adjustment included as an increase to interest expense was $6.2 million and $7.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $13.8 million and $14.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

During the first quarter of 2010, we entered into interest rate swap and interest rate cap agreements that are not designated as cash flow hedges. The Company’s interest expense includes income of $0.6 million and expense of $0.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and income of $0.8 million and $0.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, resulting from the change in fair value of these interest rate swaps and interest rate caps.

Advertising Expense

We recognize advertising expenses as incurred. These expenses include media, public relations, promotional, branding and sponsorship costs and on-line advertising. Total advertising expense for the Company was $1.1 million and $6.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $5.2 million and $9.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Concentration of Credit Risk

Trade Receivables
Approximately 85% of our advertising revenue is derived from the sale of our marketing solutions to local businesses. These customers typically enter into 12-month advertising sales contracts and make monthly payments over the term of the contract. Commencing in late 2011, the Company began to offer customers the ability to purchase digital marketing solutions for shorter time frames than our standard one year contract. Some customers prepay the full amount or a portion of the contract value. Most new customers and customers desiring to expand their advertising programs are subject to a credit review. If the customers qualify, we may extend credit to them in the form of a trade receivable for their advertising purchase. Local businesses tend to have fewer financial resources and higher failure rates than large businesses. In addition, full collection of delinquent accounts can take an extended period of time and involve significant costs. We do not require collateral from our customers, although we do charge late fees to customers that do not pay by specified due dates.

The remaining approximately 15% of our advertising revenue is derived from the sale of our marketing solutions to national or large regional chains. The majority of the revenue derived through national accounts is serviced through certified marketing representatives ("CMRs") from which we accept orders. CMRs are independent third parties that act as agents for national customers. The CMRs are responsible for billing the national customers for their advertising. We receive payment for the value of advertising placed in our directories, net of the CMR’s commission, directly from the CMR.

Derivative Financial Instruments

At June 30, 2012, we had interest rate swap and interest rate cap agreements with major financial institutions with a notional amount of $300.0 million and $200.0 million, respectively. We are exposed to credit risk in the event that one or more of the counterparties to the agreements does not, or cannot, meet their obligation. The notional amount for interest rate swaps is used to measure interest to be paid or received and does not represent the amount of exposure to credit loss. Any loss would be limited to the amount that would have been received over the remaining life of the interest rate swap agreement. Under the terms of the interest rate cap agreements, the Company will receive payments based on the spread in rates if the three-month LIBOR rate increases above the negotiated cap rates. Any loss would be limited to the amount that would have been received based on the spread in rates over the remaining life of the interest rate cap agreement. The counterparties to the interest rate swap and interest rate cap agreements are major financial institutions with credit ratings of A- or higher, or the equivalent dependent upon the credit rating agency.

Diluted EPS is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average common shares outstanding plus dilutive potential common stock. Potential common stock includes stock options and restricted stock, the dilutive effect of which is calculated using the treasury stock method. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, 3.3 million shares and 2.6 million shares, respectively, of the Company’s stock-based awards had exercise prices that exceeded the average market price of the Company’s common stock for the respective period. Due to the Company's reported net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, the effect of all stock-based awards was anti-dilutive and therefore not included in the calculation of EPS. For both the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, 3.4 million shares of the Company’s stock-based awards had exercise prices that exceeded the average market price of the Company’s common stock for the respective period.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments

At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the fair value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, net and accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximated their carrying value based on the net short-term nature of these instruments. Estimates of fair value may be affected by assumptions made and, accordingly, are not necessarily indicative of the amounts the Company could realize in a current market exchange.

As required by Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, assets and liabilities are classified based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The Company’s assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement requires judgment, and may affect the valuation of the fair value of assets and liabilities and their placement within the fair value hierarchy levels. The Company had interest rate swaps with a notional amount of $300.0 million and $500.0 million at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively, and interest rate caps with a notional amount of $200.0 million and $400.0 million at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively, that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis.

The following table presents the Company’s assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively, and the level within the fair value hierarchy in which the fair value measurements were included.

There were no transfers of assets or liabilities into or out of Levels 1, 2 or 3 of the fair value hierarchy during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 or year ended December 31, 2011. The Company has established a policy of recognizing transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy as of the end of a reporting period. The Company’s long-term debt obligations are not measured at fair value on a recurring basis, however we present the fair value of the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes and our Credit Facilities in Note 4, “Long-Term Debt.” The Company has utilized quoted market prices, where available, to compute the fair market value of these long-term debt obligations at June 30, 2012. The Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes are categorized within Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy and our Credit Facilities are categorized within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.
 
Valuation Techniques – Interest Rate Swaps and Interest Rate Caps

Fair value is a market-based measure considered from the perspective of a market participant who holds the asset or owes the liability rather than an entity-specific measure. Therefore, even when market assumptions are not readily available, the Company’s own assumptions are set to reflect those that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability at the measurement date. The Company uses prices and inputs that are current as of the measurement date.

Fair value for our derivative instruments was derived using pricing models based on a market approach. Pricing models take into account relevant observable market inputs that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. The pricing models used to determine fair value for each of our derivative instruments incorporate specific contract terms for valuation inputs, including effective dates, maturity dates, interest rate swap pay rates, interest rate cap rates and notional amounts, as disclosed and presented in Note 5, “Derivative Financial Instruments,” interest rate yield curves, and the creditworthiness of the counterparty and the Company. Counterparty credit risk and the Company’s credit risk could have a material impact on the fair value of our derivative instruments, our results of operations or financial condition in a particular reporting period. At June 30, 2012, the impact of applying counterparty credit risk in determining the fair value of our derivative instruments was not material. At June 30, 2012, the impact of applying the Company’s credit risk in determining the fair value of our derivative instruments was a decrease to our derivative instruments liability of $0.5 million.

Many pricing models do not entail material subjectivity because the methodologies employed do not necessitate significant judgment, and the pricing inputs are observed from actively quoted markets, as is the case for our derivative instruments. The pricing models used by the Company are widely accepted by the financial services industry. As such and as noted above, our derivative instruments are categorized within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.

Fair Value Control Processes– Interest Rate Swaps and Interest Rate Caps

The Company employs control processes to validate the fair value of its derivative instruments derived from the pricing models. These control processes are designed to assure that the values used for financial reporting are based on observable inputs wherever possible. In the event that observable inputs are not available, the control processes are designed to assure that the valuation approach utilized is appropriate and consistently applied and that the assumptions are reasonable.

Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and certain expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates and assumptions. Estimates and assumptions are used in the determination of recoverability of long-lived assets, sales allowances, allowances for doubtful accounts, depreciation and amortization, employee benefit plans expense, restructuring expense and accruals, deferred income taxes, certain assumptions pertaining to our stock-based awards, and certain estimates and assumptions used in our impairment evaluation and useful lives assessment of definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets, among others.

New Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income (“ASU 2011-05”). ASU 2011-05 allows an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. ASU 2011-05 eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in shareholders' equity. ASU 2011-05 does not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income. In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-12, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05 ("ASU 2011-12"). ASU 2011-12 defers the effective date of provisions included in ASU 2011-05 that require entities to present reclassification adjustments out of accumulated other comprehensive income by component in both the statement where net income is presented and the statement where other comprehensive income is presented for both interim and annual financial statements. ASU 2011-12 further states that entities must continue to report reclassification adjustments out of accumulated comprehensive income consistent with the presentation requirements in effect before ASU 2011-05. Effective January 1, 2012, the Company adopted the applicable provisions included in ASU 2011-05 and elected to present a single continuous statement of comprehensive income. The Company continues to monitor the FASB's deliberations regarding ASU 2011-12.
In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs (“ASU 2011-04’). ASU 2011-04 was issued to provide a consistent definition of fair value and ensure that the fair value measurement and disclosure requirements are similar between GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards. ASU 2011-04 clarifies the FASB’s intent about the application of existing fair value measurement and disclosure requirements, changes certain fair value measurement principles and enhances fair value disclosure requirements. Effective January 1, 2012, the Company adopted the disclosure provisions included in ASU 2011-04. The adoption of ASU 2011-04 had no impact on our financial position or results of operations.

We have reviewed other accounting pronouncements that were issued as of June 30, 2012, which the Company has not yet adopted, and do not believe that these pronouncements will have a material impact on our financial position or operating results.

3. Restructuring Charges

During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company initiated a restructuring plan that included headcount reductions, consolidation of responsibilities and vacating leased facilities, which continued into 2011 (“Restructuring Actions”). The Company did not recognize a restructuring charge to earnings related to the Restructuring Actions during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. Cash payments of $0.6 million and $7.0 million were made in conjunction with the Restructuring Actions during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. The Company recognized a restructuring charge to earnings of $8.7 million and $14.7 million and made cash payments of $7.6 million and $16.0 million related to the Restructuring Actions during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The following tables show the activity in our restructuring reserve associated with the Restructuring Actions during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012:

Notes

Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes

In conjunction with the Note Repurchases, the Company repurchased $98.2 million aggregate principal amount of Dex One Senior Notes at a rate of 27.0% of par. As of June 30, 2012, the outstanding carrying value of the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes totaled $212.3 million. Interest on the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes is payable semi-annually on March 31st and September 30th of each year, commencing on March 31, 2010 through January 29, 2017. The Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes accrue interest at an annual rate of 12% for cash interest payments and 14% if the Company elects PIK interest payments. The Company may elect, no later than two business days prior to the beginning of any such semi-annual interest period, whether to make each interest payment on the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes (i) entirely in cash or (ii) 50% in cash and 50% in PIK interest, which is capitalized as additional senior subordinated notes. In the absence of such an election for any subsequent semi-annual interest period, interest on the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes will be payable in the form of the interest payment for the semi-annual interest period immediately preceding such subsequent semi-annual interest period. For the semi-annual interest period ending March 31, 2012, the Company made interest payments 50% in cash and 50% in PIK interest, as permitted by the indenture governing the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes, resulting in the issuance of an additional $10.5 million of Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes. The Company will continue to make interest payments on the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes 50% in cash and 50% in PIK interest for the semi-annual interest period ending September 30, 2012.
 
Impact of Fresh Start Accounting

In conjunction with our adoption of fresh start accounting, an adjustment was established to record our outstanding debt at fair value on the Fresh Start Reporting Date. The Company was required to record our Credit Facilities at a discount as a result of their fair value on the Fresh Start Reporting Date. Therefore, the carrying amount of these debt obligations is lower than the principal amount due at maturity. A total discount of $120.2 million was recorded upon adoption of fresh start accounting associated with our Credit Facilities, of which $47.4 million remains unamortized at June 30, 2012, as shown in the following table.

In conjunction with the Credit Facility Repurchases, we accelerated amortization of fair value adjustments to our Credit Facilities of $2.0 million, which partially offset the net gain on Credit Facility Repurchases recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2012. See Note 1, “Business and Basis of Presentation - Significant Financing Developments” for additional information.

5. Derivative Financial Instruments

We do not use derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes and our derivative financial instruments are limited to interest rate swap and interest rate cap agreements. The Company utilizes a combination of fixed rate debt and variable rate debt to finance its operations. The variable rate debt exposes the Company to variability in interest payments due to changes in interest rates. Management believes that it is prudent to mitigate the interest rate risk on a portion of its variable rate borrowings. To satisfy our objectives and requirements, the Company has entered into interest rate swap and interest rate cap agreements, which have not been designated as cash flow hedges, to manage our exposure to interest rate fluctuations on our variable rate debt.


14


All derivative financial instruments are recognized as either assets or liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets with measurement at fair value. On a quarterly basis, the fair values of our interest rate swaps and interest rate caps are determined based on observable inputs. These derivative instruments have not been designated as cash flow hedges and as such, the initial fair value and any subsequent gains or losses on the change in the fair value of the interest rate swaps and interest rate caps are reported in earnings as a component of interest expense. Any gains or losses related to the quarterly fair value adjustments are presented as a non-cash operating activity on the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. By using derivative financial instruments to hedge exposures to changes in interest rates, the Company exposes itself to credit risk and market risk. Credit risk is the possible failure of the counterparty to perform under the terms of the derivative contract. When the fair value of a derivative contract is positive, the counterparty owes the Company, which creates credit risk for the Company. When the fair value of a derivative contract is negative, the Company owes the counterparty and, therefore, it is not subject to credit risk. The Company minimizes the credit risk in derivative financial instruments by entering into transactions with major financial institutions with credit ratings of A- or higher, or the equivalent dependent upon the credit rating agency.

Market risk is the adverse effect on the value of a financial instrument that results from a change in interest rates. The market risk associated with interest-rate contracts is managed by establishing and monitoring parameters that limit the types and degree of market risk that may be undertaken. See Note 2, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – Fair Value of Financial Instruments” for additional information regarding our interest rate swaps and interest rate caps.

The Company has entered into the following interest rate swaps that effectively convert $300.0 million, or approximately 16%, of the Company’s variable rate debt to fixed rate debt as of June 30, 2012. Since the RHDI Amended and Restated Credit Facility and the Dex Media West Amended and Restated Credit Facility are subject to a LIBOR floor of 3.00% and the LIBOR rate is below that floor at June 30, 2012, both credit facilities are effectively fixed rate debt until such time LIBOR exceeds the stated floor. At June 30, 2012, approximately 90% of our total debt outstanding consisted of variable rate debt, excluding the effect of our interest rate swaps. Including the effect of our interest rate swaps, total fixed rate debt comprised approximately 25% of our total debt portfolio as of June 30, 2012.

The weighted average rate received on our interest rate swaps was 0.5% for the six months ended June 30, 2012. These periodic payments and receipts are recorded as interest expense.

Under the terms of the interest rate cap agreements, the Company will receive payments based on the spread in rates if the three-month LIBOR rate increases above the cap rates noted in the table below. The Company paid $2.1 million for the interest rate cap agreements entered into during the first quarter of 2010. We are not required to make any future payments related to these interest rate cap agreements.

The Company recognized expense related to our interest rate swaps and interest rate caps, including accrued interest, of $0.4 million and $2.0 million during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $1.3 million and $2.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

6. Income Taxes

Our quarterly income tax (provision) benefit for income taxes is measured using an estimated annual effective tax rate for the period, adjusted for discrete items that occurred within the periods presented.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, we recorded an income tax (provision) of $(4.7) million and $(3.5) million, respectively, which represents an effective tax rate of 8.2% and 3.1%, respectively. The effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 differs from the federal statutory rate of 35.0% primarily due to changes in recorded valuation allowances, the impact of state income taxes and changes in deferred tax liabilities related to the stock basis of subsidiaries.

The Debt Repurchases resulted in a tax gain of $71.7 million and $141.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. Generally, the discharge of a debt obligation for an amount less than the adjusted issue price creates cancellation of debt income ("CODI"), which must be included in the taxpayer's taxable income. However, in accordance with Internal Revenue Code ("IRC") Section 108, in lieu of recognizing taxable income from CODI, the Company is required to reduce existing tax attributes. As a result, the Company recognized an estimated decrease in deferred tax assets relating to net operating losses and the basis of amortizable and depreciable property of approximately $24.4 million and $51.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. These decreases were offset by a decrease in recorded valuation allowance during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012.

The estimated annual effective tax rate for the current year includes an estimate of the change in the valuation allowance expected to be necessary at the end of the year. The Company recorded a decrease in the valuation allowance during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 as a result of the Debt Repurchases (discussed above). In addition, the valuation allowance was decreased during the six months ended June 30, 2012 as a result of the reduction in estimated useful lives of certain intangible assets as discussed in Note 2, "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - Identifiable Intangible Assets," which was a change in circumstances that resulted in a change in judgment about the Company's ability to realize deferred tax assets in future years. The resulting decrease in income tax expense allocated to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 relating to the changes in valuation allowance is $17.1 million and $42.7 million, respectively, which reduces our effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 by approximately 29.6% and 37.5%, respectively.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, we recorded an income tax benefit of $163.7 million and $143.5 million, respectively, which represents an effective tax rate of 21.4% and 20.8%, respectively. The effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 differs from the federal statutory rate of 35.0% primarily due to non-deductible goodwill impairment, changes in deferred tax liabilities related to the stock basis of subsidiaries, changes in recorded valuation allowances and decreases in the liability for unrecognized tax benefits.

The Company recorded a goodwill impairment charge of $801.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, of which $457.2 million related to non-deductible goodwill. Impairment of non‑deductible goodwill reduced the income tax benefit of the impairment by $174.1 million and reduced our effective tax rate by approximately 22.7% and 25.2% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.

Upon emergence from bankruptcy, the Company recorded deferred tax liabilities related to the excess of the financial statement carrying amount over the tax basis of investments in certain subsidiaries. The estimated annual effective tax rate for the current year includes an estimate of the change in these deferred tax liabilities for the year. The goodwill impairment charge reduced the financial statement carrying amount of investments in certain subsidiaries, which caused a reduction in these deferred tax liabilities. The resulting reduction in income tax expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 relating to the change in these deferred tax liabilities was $72.5 million and $78.9 million, respectively, which increased the effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 by approximately 9.5% and 11.4%, respectively.

The estimated annual effective tax rate for 2011 included an estimate of the valuation allowance expected to be necessary at the end of the year for originating deferred tax assets. The goodwill impairment charge gave rise to a deferred tax asset whose realization did not meet a more-likely-than-not threshold, requiring a valuation allowance. The resulting increase in income tax expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 relating to the change in valuation allowance is $47.2 million and $46.6 million, respectively, which reduced the effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 by approximately 6.2% and 6.8%, respectively.

During the three months ended June 30, 2011, the federal statute of limitations relating to a previously unrecognized tax position for revenue recognition closed. The Company has decreased its liability for unrecognized tax benefits associated with this federal and state uncertain tax position by $28.2 million and recorded a net tax benefit of $24.0 million for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, which increased the effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 by approximately 3.1% and 3.5%, respectively.

On April 30, 2012, settlements of the Dex Media, Inc. Pension Plan and Dex One Pension Benefit Equalization Plan ("PBEP") occurred as a result of restructuring activities. At that time, year-to-date lump sum payments to participants exceeded the sum of the service cost plus interest cost components of the net periodic benefit cost for the period. These settlements resulted in the recognition of an actuarial loss of $1.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. Pension liabilities and expense for the Dex Media, Inc. Pension Plan and PBEP were recomputed based on assumptions as of April 30, 2012, resulting in a decrease in the discount rate from 4.38% at December 31, 2011 to 4.22% for the Dex Media, Inc. Pension Plan and 4.51% at December 31, 2011 to 4.25% for the PBEP. The Company utilized a yield curve to determine the appropriate discount rate based on each plan's expected future cash flows. The expected return on plan assets assumption was also reduced for the Company's benefit plans from 8.0% at December 31, 2011 to 7.5%. On May 31, 2011, settlements of the Dex Media, Inc. Pension Plan occurred. These settlements resulted in the recognition of an actuarial loss of $0.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

The Company made contributions to its pension plans of $2.3 million and $1.4 million during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $9.3 million and $12.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. We expect to make total contributions of approximately $16.3 million to our pension plans in 2012.

8.    Business Segments

For the periods covered by this quarterly report, management reviews and analyzes its business of providing marketing solutions as one operating segment.

 9.    Legal Proceedings

We are subject to various lawsuits, claims, and regulatory and administrative proceedings arising out of our business covering matters such as general commercial, governmental regulations, intellectual property, employment, tax and other actions. In the opinion of management, the ultimate resolution of these matters, including the two cases described below, will not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, cash flows or financial position.

Beginning on October 23, 2009, a series of putative securities class action lawsuits were commenced against certain former Company officers in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired our publicly traded securities between July 26, 2007 and the time we filed for bankruptcy on May 28, 2009, alleging that such officers issued false and misleading statements regarding our business and financial condition and seeking damages and equitable relief. On August 19, 2010, an amended consolidated class action complaint was filed as the operative securities class action complaint (the “Securities Class Action Complaint”). The Company is not named as a defendant in the Securities Class Action Complaint. On December 30, 2011, the parties to the Securities Class Action Complaint entered into a memorandum of understanding containing the essential terms of a settlement of all disputes between them. On February 17, 2012, a formal stipulation of settlement was filed with the court. Pursuant to the stipulation of settlement, in exchange for a complete release of all claims, the Company's director's and officer's liability insurers will create a $25 million settlement fund for the benefit of the settlement class. The Company is not making any financial contribution to the settlement fund. The stipulation of settlement was approved by the court on June 19, 2012.

On December 7, 2009, a putative ERISA class action lawsuit was commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of certain participants in, or beneficiaries of, the R.H. Donnelley 401(k) Savings Plan at any time between July 26, 2007 and January 29, 2010 and whose plan accounts included investments in R.H. Donnelley common stock. The putative ERISA class action complaint contains allegations against certain current and former directors, officers and employees similar to those set forth in the Securities Class Action Complaint as well as allegations of breaches of fiduciary duties under ERISA and seeks damages and equitable relief. The Company is not named as a defendant in this ERISA class action. On June 21, 2012, the parties to the ERISA class action suit entered into a memorandum of understanding containing the essential terms of a settlement of all disputes between them. On July 9, 2012, a formal settlement agreement and release was filed with the court. Pursuant to the settlement agreement and release, in exchange for a complete release of all claims, the Company's fiduciary liability insurers will create a $2.1 million settlement fund for the benefit of the settlement class. The Company is not making any financial contribution to the settlement fund. The settlement agreement and release is subject to final court approval, which we expect to receive during the second half of 2012.

10. Other Information

On February 14, 2011, we completed the sale of substantially all net assets of Business.com, including long-lived assets, domain names, trademarks, brands, intellectual property, related content and technology platform. As a result, we recognized a gain on the sale of these assets of $13.4 million during the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Recent Trends and Developments Related to Our Business

Significant Financing Developments

On March 20, 2012, the Company announced the commencement of a cash tender offer to purchase the maximum aggregate principal amount of our outstanding $300.0 million Initial Aggregate Principal Amount of 12%/14% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2017 (“Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes”) for $26.0 million. See Item 1, "Financial Statements (Unaudited)" - Note 1, "Business and Basis of Presentation - Significant Financing Developments" for additional information on the cash tender offer to repurchase the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes. On April 19, 2012, under the terms and conditions of the Offer to Purchase, the Company utilized cash on hand of $26.5 million to repurchase $98.2 million aggregate principal amount of Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes, representing 27% of par value ("Note Repurchases"). The Note Repurchases have been accounted for as an extinguishment of debt resulting in a non-cash, pre-tax gain of $70.8 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, consisting of the difference between the par value and purchase price of the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes, offset by fees associated with the Note Repurchases. The following table provides the calculation of the net gain on Note Repurchases for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012:

On March 9, 2012, R.H. Donnelley Inc. ("RHDI"), Dex Media East, Inc. ("DME Inc.") and Dex Media West, Inc. ("DMW Inc.") each entered into the First Amendment (the "Amendments") to the amended and restated RHDI credit facility (“RHDI Amended and Restated Credit Facility”), the amended and restated DME Inc. credit facility (“Dex Media East Amended and Restated Credit Facility”) and the amended and restated DMW Inc. credit facility (“Dex Media West Amended and Restated Credit Facility”) (collectively, the "Credit Facilities"), respectively, with certain financial institutions. The Amendments permit RHDI, DME Inc. and DMW Inc. to make open market repurchases and retire loans under their respective Credit Facilities at a discount to par through December 31, 2013, provided that such discount is acceptable to those lenders who choose to participate. See Item 1, "Financial Statements (Unaudited)" - Note 1, "Business and Basis of Presentation - Significant Financing Developments" for additional information on the Amendments and the offers to repurchase loans under the respective Credit Facilities.

On March 23, 2012, RHDI, DME Inc. and DMW Inc. collectively utilized cash on hand of $69.5 million to repurchase loans under the Credit Facilities of $142.1 million ("Credit Facility Repurchases"). The Credit Facility Repurchases have been accounted for as an extinguishment of debt resulting in a non-cash, pre-tax gain of $68.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2012, consisting of the difference between the par value and purchase price of the Credit Facilities, offset by accelerated amortization of fair value adjustments to our Credit Facilities that were recognized in conjunction with our adoption of fresh start accounting and fees associated with the Credit Facility Repurchases. The following table provides detail of the Credit Facility Repurchases and the calculation of the net gain on Credit Facility Repurchases for the six months ended June 30, 2012:

Results of Operations

As discussed in “Results of Operations” below, we continue to experience lower revenues, advertising sales and bookings related to our print products primarily as a result of declines in new and recurring business, including both renewal and incremental sales to existing advertisers, mainly driven by (1) customer attrition, (2) declines in overall advertising spending by our customers, (3) the significant impact of the weak local business conditions on consumer spending in our clients’ markets, (4) an increase in competition and more fragmentation in local business search and (5) the migration of customers to digital marketing solutions. However, despite the challenges associated with our print products, we have seen growth in our digital revenues, advertising sales and bookings driven by new partnerships, a focus on providing targeted solution bundled packages to our customers, new digital products and services and the migration of customers to digital marketing solutions. These advancements have helped partially offset the decline in print revenues, advertising sales and bookings.

The Company currently projects that these challenging conditions associated with our print products will continue for the foreseeable future, and, as such, our print revenues, advertising sales and bookings, as well as overall operating results, cash flow and liquidity, will continue to be adversely impacted. Therefore, the Company’s historical operating results will not be indicative of future operating performance, although our long-term financial forecast currently anticipates no material improvement in local business conditions in our markets until 2013 at the earliest.


18


As more fully described below in “Results of Operations – Net Revenues,” our method of recognizing print revenue under the deferral and amortization method results in delayed recognition of advertising sales whereby recognized revenues reflect the amortization of advertising sales consummated in prior periods as well as advertising sales consummated in the current period. Accordingly, the Company’s projected decline in print advertising sales will result in a decline in print revenues recognized in future periods. In addition, any improvements in local business conditions that are anticipated in our long-term financial forecast noted above will not have a significant immediate impact on our print revenues.

Our Plan

As more fully described in Part I - Item 1, “Business” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, we are a marketing solutions company that helps local businesses and consumers connect with each other. Our proprietary and affiliate provided marketing solutions combine multiple media platforms, which help drive large volumes of consumer leads to our customers, and assist our customers in managing their presence among those consumers. Our proprietary marketing solutions include our Dex published yellow pages directories, our Internet yellow pages site, DexKnows.com and our mobile applications, Dex Mobile and CityCentral. Our digital lead generation solutions are powered by our search engine marketing product, DexNet, which extends our customers’ reach to our leading Internet and mobile partners to attract consumers searching for local businesses, products and services within our markets.

In response to the challenges noted above, we are working to improve the value we deliver to our customers by (1) providing targeted solution bundles that combine offline and online media platforms, which includes our Dex Guaranteed Actions ("DGA") program and (2) expanding the number of platforms and media through which we deliver their message to consumers. Our growing list of marketing solutions includes local business and market analysis, message and image creation, target market identification, advertising and digital profile creation, web sites, mobile web sites, reputation management, online video development and promotion, keyword optimization strategies and programs, distribution strategies, social strategies and tracking and reporting. In addition, our Company is in the process of transitioning to a compete-and-collaborate business model, as we believe that partnerships will enable us to offer a broader and more robust array of products and services to our customers than we would be able to do on a proprietary basis and without the risks, capital investment, and ongoing maintenance associated with development in house.

We also continue to invest in our business and our people through strategic programs, initiatives and technology such as: (1) the Dex One Account Management System, which provides the ability for customers to log in and make real-time changes to their online marketing as well as view real-time performance data and also enables our marketing consultants to construct proposals on their mobile devices wherever they may be, (2) the Dex One Sales Academy, which provides initial training, ongoing knowledge and skills enhancement, and additional support to marketing consultants throughout the business, (3) the Digital Media Learning Program, which provides our marketing consultants the resources needed to obtain a Google sales certification, and (4) sales force technology, with the introduction of Webex virtual sales presentations for our telephone marketing consultants and the purchase of iPads for our premise marketing consultants. We have recently made a strategic change to centralize the telephone marketing consultants from our local markets to three inside sales center locations in Overland Park, Kansas, Denver, Colorado and Omaha, Nebraska. In these locations we will be able to leverage scale of resources to allow greater efficiency and focus equally across the geography we serve as well as out of market opportunities. We will also be able to utilize state of the art telephone technology to increase reach, contact rates and efficiencies. The Overland Park center was fully staffed in 2011. The Denver center is now fully staffed and we anticipate that the Omaha center will be fully staffed by the end of the third quarter of 2012. As local business conditions recover in our markets, we believe these strategic investments will help us drive incremental revenue over time.

We continue to actively manage expenses and are considering and acting upon various initiatives and opportunities to streamline operations and reduce our cost structure. One such initiative centers around print product optimization ("PPO") and the evaluation of all print related expenses and processes. The focus of PPO includes initiatives such as transforming our print product's design and content as well as distribution optimization. We believe that PPO will drive significant savings in annual print costs while continuing to provide valuable products and quality service to our customers. We also continue to assess our organizational structure to ensure it properly supports our base of business and is optimized to compete in a rapidly evolving marketplace.

The Company continues to evaluate options for reducing leverage, extending the maturities of our Credit Facilities, reducing refinancing risk and other strategic alternatives in response to the challenging industry environment.  The Company's strategic objective is to build on our existing strengths and assets to maximize value for our shareholders and other constituents. The Company has recently taken significant steps towards reducing its leverage by obtaining the Amendments to our Credit Facilities in March 2012, which resulted in the repurchase of $142.1 million of loans under our Credit Facilities at a purchase price of $69.5 million. In addition, in April 2012 we repurchased $98.2 million aggregate principal amount of Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes for a purchase price of $26.5 million. We anticipate making additional repurchases of our outstanding debt below par in the future, as permitted. The Company also continues to assess additional alternatives for the strategic objectives noted above including, but not limited to, additional amendments to our Credit Facilities, obtaining additional financing and/or refinancing our existing indebtedness, joint ventures, partnerships, acquisitions and business combinations, both within our industry and in complementary industries.
Liquidity and Going Concern Analysis

As more fully described below in “Liquidity and Capital Resources,” the Company’s primary sources of liquidity are existing cash on hand and cash flows generated from operations and our primary liquidity requirements are to fund operations and service our indebtedness. The Company’s projected decline in print advertising sales will result in a decline in cash flows in future periods. In addition, while improvements in local business conditions are anticipated in our long-term financial forecast as noted above, these improvements will not have a significant immediate impact on our cash flows. However, based on current financial projections, which include the impact of projected growth in our digital operations, the recent repurchases of our outstanding debt below par and continuous expense management, the Company expects to be able to continue to generate cash flows from operations in amounts sufficient to fund operations and meet debt service requirements for at least the next 12-15 months.

Impairment and Useful Life Analysis

The Company reviews the carrying value of definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets whenever events or circumstances indicate that their carrying amount may not be recoverable. Based on our evaluation during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, we concluded that the carrying amounts of our definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets were recoverable.

The Company evaluates the remaining useful lives of definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets whenever events or circumstances indicate that a revision to the remaining period of amortization is warranted. The Company evaluated the remaining useful lives of definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets during the first quarter of 2012 by considering, among other things, the effects of obsolescence, demand, competition, which takes into consideration the price premium benefit we have over competing independent publishers in our markets as a result of directory services agreements acquired in prior acquisitions, and other economic factors, including the stability of the industry in which we operate, known technological advances, legislative actions that result in an uncertain or changing regulatory environment, and expected changes in distribution channels. Based on our evaluation of these factors during the first quarter of 2012, the Company determined that the estimated useful lives of our directory services agreements, local and national customer relationships and tradenames and trademarks no longer reflected the period they are expected to contribute to future cash flows. Therefore, the Company reduced the estimated useful lives of these intangible assets. See Item 1, "Financial Statements (Unaudited)" - Note 2, "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - Identifiable Intangible Assets" for additional information. As a result of reducing the estimated useful lives of the intangible assets noted above, the Company expects an increase in amortization expense of $161.6 million and total amortization expense of $349.4 million for 2012. The Company performed the same evaluation of the remaining useful lives of its definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and determined that the current weighted average useful lives continue to be deemed appropriate.

If industry and local business conditions in our markets deteriorate in excess of current estimates, potentially resulting in further declines in advertising sales and operating results, and / or if the trading value of our debt and equity securities continue to decline significantly, we will be required to assess the recoverability and useful lives of our intangible assets and other long-lived assets. These factors, including changes to assumptions used in our impairment analysis as a result of these factors, could result in future impairment charges, a reduction of remaining useful lives associated with our intangible assets and other long-lived assets and acceleration of amortization expense.

Climate Change

There is a growing concern about global climate change and the emissions of carbon dioxide. This concern has led to the possibility of federal climate change legislation as well as litigation relating to greenhouse gas emissions. While we cannot predict the impact of any proposed legislation until final, we do not believe current regulation or litigation related to global climate change is likely to have a material impact on our business, future financial position, results of operations and cash flow. Accordingly, our current financial projections do not include any impact of climate change regulation or litigation.

Healthcare Reform Legislation
During March 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Healthcare and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 were signed into law. There has been no significant impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows as a result of this new legislation and we do not anticipate any significant impact in the foreseeable future.

Segment Reporting

For periods covered by this quarterly report, management reviews and analyzes its business of providing marketing solutions as one operating segment.

New Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income (“ASU 2011-05”). ASU 2011-05 allows an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. ASU 2011-05 eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in shareholders' equity. ASU 2011-05 does not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income. In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-12, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05 ("ASU 2011-12"). ASU 2011-12 defers the effective date of provisions included in ASU 2011-05 that require entities to present reclassification adjustments out of accumulated other comprehensive income by component in both the statement where net income is presented and the statement where other comprehensive income is presented for both interim and annual financial statements. ASU 2011-12 further states that entities must continue to report reclassification adjustments out of accumulated comprehensive income consistent with the presentation requirements in effect before ASU 2011-05. Effective January 1, 2012, the Company adopted the applicable provisions included in ASU 2011-05 and elected to present a single continuous statement of comprehensive income. The Company continues to monitor the FASB's deliberations regarding ASU 2011-12.
In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs (“ASU 2011-04’). ASU 2011-04 was issued to provide a consistent definition of fair value and ensure that the fair value measurement and disclosure requirements are similar between U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") and International Financial Reporting Standards. ASU 2011-04 clarifies the FASB’s intent about the application of existing fair value measurement and disclosure requirements, changes certain fair value measurement principles and enhances fair value disclosure requirements. Effective January 1, 2012, the Company adopted the disclosure provisions included in ASU 2011-04. The adoption of ASU 2011-04 had no impact on our financial position or results of operations.
We have reviewed other accounting pronouncements that were issued as of June 30, 2012, which the Company has not yet adopted, and do not believe that these pronouncements will have a material impact on our financial position or operating results.

Our advertising revenues are earned primarily from the sale of advertising in yellow pages directories we publish. Advertising revenues also include revenues from our Internet-based marketing solutions including online directories, such as DexKnows.com and DexNet. Advertising revenues are affected by several factors, including changes in the quantity, size and characteristics of advertisements, acquisition of new clients, renewal rates of existing clients, premium advertisements sold, changes in advertisement pricing, the introduction of new marketing solutions, an increase in competition and more fragmentation in the local business search market and general economic factors. Revenues with respect to print advertising and Internet-based marketing solutions that are sold with print advertising are recognized under the deferral and amortization method whereby revenues are initially deferred when a directory is published, net of sales claims and allowances, and recognized ratably over the directory’s life, which is typically 12 months. Revenues with respect to Internet-based marketing solutions that are sold standalone, such as DexNet, are recognized ratably over the life of the contract commencing when they are first delivered or fulfilled. Revenues with respect to our marketing solutions that are performance-based are recognized as the service is delivered or fulfilled.

Gross advertising revenues of $332.3 million and $676.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 declined $43.5 million, or 11.6%, and $90.4 million, or 11.8%, from gross advertising revenues of $375.8 million and $766.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The decline in gross advertising revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 is related to our print products, primarily as a result of continuing declines in new and recurring business, mainly driven by (1) customer attrition, (2) declines in overall advertising spending by our customers, (3) the significant impact of the weak local business conditions on consumer spending in our customers’ markets, (4) an increase in competition and more fragmentation in local business search and (5) the migration of customers to digital marketing solutions. The decline in gross advertising revenues is also a result of recognizing approximately one month of revenues from Business.com in 2011 with no comparable revenues in 2012. Declines in print advertising revenues are partially offset by increased advertising revenues associated with our digital marketing solutions, driven by new partnerships, a focus on providing targeted solution bundled packages to our customers, new digital products and services and the migration of customers to digital marketing solutions.

Certain costs directly related to the selling and production of directories are initially deferred and then amortized ratably over the life of the directories under the deferral and amortization method of accounting to match revenue recognized relating to such directories, with cost recognition commencing in the month directory distribution is substantially complete. These costs are specifically identifiable to a particular directory and include sales commissions and print, paper and initial distribution costs. Sales commissions include amounts paid to employees for sales to local customers and to certified marketing representatives ("CMRs"), which act as our channel to national clients. All other expenses, such as sales person salaries, sales manager compensation, sales office occupancy, publishing and information technology services, are not specifically identifiable to a particular directory and are recognized as incurred. Our costs recognized in a reporting period consist of: (i) costs incurred in that period and fully recognized in that period; (ii) costs incurred in a prior period, a portion of which is amortized and recognized in the current period; and (iii) costs incurred in the current period, a portion of which is amortized and recognized in the current period and the balance of which is deferred until future periods. Consequently, there will be a difference between costs recognized in any given period and costs incurred in the given period, which may be significant.

Production and Distribution Expenses

Production and distribution expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $73.9 million and $144.7 million, respectively, compared to production and distribution expenses of $75.2 million and $150.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The primary components of the $1.3 million, or 1.7%, and $5.5 million, or 3.7%, decrease in production and distribution expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, were as follows:

Print, paper and distribution expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 declined $4.8 million and $7.9 million, respectively, compared to print, paper and distribution expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to lower page volumes associated with declines in print advertisements, as well as ongoing PPO initiatives to reduce print-related costs.

Internet production and distribution expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 increased $4.0 million and $3.5 million, respectively, compared to Internet production and distribution expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to increased DexNet traffic costs driven by higher sales volume and cost per click rates.

Selling and Support Expenses

Selling and support expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $90.4 million and $185.3 million, respectively, compared to selling and support expenses of $110.8 million and $214.9 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The primary components of the $20.4 million, or 18.4%, and $29.6 million, or 13.8%, decrease in selling and support expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, were as follows:

Commissions and salesperson expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 declined $7.1 million and $11.5 million, respectively, compared to commissions and salesperson expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to lower print advertising sales and its effect on variable-based commissions, as well as lower headcount and related expenses.

Advertising expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 declined $5.6 million and $4.6 million, respectively, compared to advertising expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to a reduction in media spend.

Bad debt expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 declined $4.7 million and $2.3 million, respectively, compared to bad debt expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to effective credit and collections practices, which have driven improvements in our accounts receivable portfolio, as well as lower billing volumes associated with declines in advertisers and advertising sales.

Directory publishing expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 declined $2.0 million and $4.2 million, respectively, compared to directory publishing expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to declines in print advertisements and lower headcount.

Marketing expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 declined $0.6 million and $4.2 million, respectively, compared to marketing expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to lower headcount.

General and Administrative Expenses
 
General and administrative (“G&A”) expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $30.4 million and $60.6 million, respectively, compared to G&A expenses of $36.1 million and $74.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The primary components of the $5.7 million, or 15.8%, and $13.5 million, or 18.2%, decrease in G&A expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, were as follows:

During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company initiated a restructuring plan that included headcount reductions, consolidation of responsibilities and vacating leased facilities, which continued into 2011 (“Restructuring Actions”). As a result of the Restructuring Actions, the Company recognized a restructuring charge of $8.7 million and $14.7 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. There were no restructuring charges recognized in conjunction with the Restructuring Actions during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company recognized severance expenses of $3.3 million and $5.5 million, respectively, which were unrelated to the Restructuring Actions.

Depreciation and Amortization Expenses

Depreciation and amortization expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $105.0 million and $208.7 million, respectively, compared to depreciation and amortization expenses of $61.9 million and $116.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. Amortization of intangible assets was $87.4 million and $174.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, compared to $45.5 million and $83.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The significant increase in intangible asset amortization expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 is a result of accelerated amortization expense due to the reduction in estimated useful lives of our directory services agreements, local and national customer relationships and tradenames and trademarks during the first quarter of 2012. See Item 1, "Financial Statements (Unaudited)" - Note 2 - "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - Identifiable Intangible Assets" for additional information. Depreciation of fixed assets and amortization of computer software of $17.6 million and $34.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, remained level as compared to $16.4 million and $32.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.

Impairment Charges

During the three months ended June 30, 2011, the Company concluded there were indicators of impairment and as a result, we performed an impairment test of our goodwill and an impairment recoverability test of our definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets. The testing results of our definite-lived intangible assets and other long-lived assets indicated they were recoverable and thus no impairment test was required. Based upon the testing results of our goodwill, we determined that the remaining goodwill assigned to each of our reporting units was fully impaired and thus recognized an aggregate goodwill impairment charge of $801.1 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011. Please refer to our Quarterly Report on From 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2011 for additional information including estimates and assumptions used in our impairment testing.

Operating Income (Loss)

Operating income (loss) was $34.7 million and $79.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, compared to $(707.8) million and $(587.8) million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The change in operating income (loss) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 is primarily due to the goodwill impairment charge recognized in the second quarter of 2011. The change in operating income (loss) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 is also a result of continuing declines in print revenues as well as the increase in amortization expense described above, partially offset by declines in operating expenses also described above.

Gain on Debt Repurchases, Net

As a result of the Debt Repurchases, we recognized a non-cash, pre-tax gain of $70.8 million and $139.6 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. See Item 1, "Financial Statements (Unaudited)" - Note 1 - "Business and Basis of Presentation - Significant Financing Developments" for additional information.

Gain on Sale of Assets, Net

On February 14, 2011, we completed the sale of substantially all net assets of Business.com, including long-lived assets, domain names, trademarks, brands, intellectual property, related content and technology platform. As a result, we recognized a gain on the sale of these assets of $13.4 million during the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Interest Expense, Net

Net interest expense of the Company was $47.9 million and $105.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, compared to $58.1 million and $115.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The decrease in net interest expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 is primarily due to lower outstanding debt as a result of mandatory and accelerated debt repayments, partially offset by an increase in net interest expense as a result of the Company's election to make PIK interest payments on the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes for the semi-annual interest period ending March 31, 2012.
   
In conjunction with our adoption of fresh start accounting and reporting on February 1, 2010 ("Fresh Start Reporting Date"), an adjustment was established to record our outstanding debt at fair value on the Fresh Start Reporting Date. This fair value adjustment will be amortized as an increase to interest expense over the remaining term of the respective debt agreements using the effective interest method and does not impact future scheduled interest or principal payments. Amortization of the fair value adjustment included as an increase to interest expense was $6.2 million and $13.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, and $7.5 million and $14.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.

During the first quarter of 2010, we entered into interest rate swap and interest rate cap agreements that are not designated as cash flow hedges. The Company’s interest expense includes income of $0.6 million and $0.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, and expense of $0.4 million and income of $0.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, resulting from the change in fair value of these interest rate swaps and interest rate caps.

Income Taxes

Our quarterly income tax (provision) benefit for income taxes is measured using an estimated annual effective tax rate for the period, adjusted for discrete items that occurred within the periods presented.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, we recorded an income tax (provision) of $(4.7) million and $(3.5) million, respectively, which represents an effective tax rate of 8.2% and 3.1%, respectively. The effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 differs from the federal statutory rate of 35.0% primarily due to changes in recorded valuation allowances, the impact of state income taxes and changes in deferred tax liabilities related to the stock basis of subsidiaries.

The Debt Repurchases resulted in a tax gain of $71.7 million and $141.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. Generally, the discharge of a debt obligation for an amount less than the adjusted issue price creates cancellation of debt income ("CODI"), which must be included in the taxpayer's taxable income. However, in accordance with Internal Revenue Code ("IRC") Section 108, in lieu of recognizing taxable income from CODI, the Company is required to reduce existing tax attributes. As a result, the Company recognized an estimated decrease in deferred tax assets relating to net operating losses and the basis of amortizable and depreciable property of approximately $24.4 million and $51.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. These decreases were offset by a decrease in recorded valuation allowance during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012.

The estimated annual effective tax rate for the current year includes an estimate of the change in the valuation allowance expected to be necessary at the end of the year. The Company recorded a decrease in the valuation allowance during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 as a result of the Debt Repurchases (discussed above). In addition, the valuation allowance was decreased during the six months ended June 30, 2012 as a result of the reduction in estimated useful lives of certain intangible assets as discussed in Item 1, "Financial Statements (Unaudited)" - Note 2 - "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - Identifiable Intangible Assets," which was a change in circumstances that resulted in a change in judgment about the Company's ability to realize deferred tax assets in future years. The resulting decrease in income tax expense allocated to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 relating to the changes in valuation allowance is $17.1 million and $42.7 million, respectively, which reduces our effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 by approximately 29.6% and 37.5%, respectively.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, we recorded an income tax benefit of $163.7 million and $143.5 million, respectively, which represents an effective tax rate of 21.4% and 20.8%, respectively. The effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 differs from the federal statutory rate of 35.0% primarily due to non-deductible goodwill impairment, changes in deferred tax liabilities related to the stock basis of subsidiaries, changes in recorded valuation allowances and decreases in the liability for unrecognized tax benefits.

26


The Company recorded a goodwill impairment charge of $801.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, of which $457.2 million related to non-deductible goodwill. Impairment of non‑deductible goodwill reduced the income tax benefit of the impairment by $174.1 million and reduced our effective tax rate by approximately 22.7% and 25.2% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.

Upon emergence from bankruptcy, the Company recorded deferred tax liabilities related to the excess of the financial statement carrying amount over the tax basis of investments in certain subsidiaries. The estimated annual effective tax rate for the current year includes an estimate of the change in these deferred tax liabilities for the year. The goodwill impairment charge reduced the financial statement carrying amount of investments in certain subsidiaries, which caused a reduction in these deferred tax liabilities. The resulting reduction in income tax expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 relating to the change in these deferred tax liabilities was $72.5 million and $78.9 million, respectively, which increased the effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 by approximately 9.5% and 11.4%, respectively.

The estimated annual effective tax rate for 2011 included an estimate of the valuation allowance expected to be necessary at the end of the year for originating deferred tax assets. The goodwill impairment charge gave rise to a deferred tax asset whose realization did not meet a more-likely-than-not threshold, requiring a valuation allowance. The resulting increase in income tax expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 relating to the change in valuation allowance is $47.2 million and $46.6 million, respectively, which reduced the effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 by approximately 6.2% and 6.8%, respectively.

During the three months ended June 30, 2011, the federal statute of limitations relating to a previously unrecognized tax position for revenue recognition closed. The Company has decreased its liability for unrecognized tax benefits associated with this federal and state uncertain tax position by $28.2 million and recorded a net tax benefit of $24.0 million for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, which increased the effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 by approximately 3.1% and 3.5%, respectively.

Net Income (Loss) and Earnings (Loss) Per Share

Net income (loss) was $52.9 million and $110.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, compared to $(602.1) million and $(546.7) million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The change in net income (loss) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 is primarily due to the goodwill impairment charge and corresponding income tax benefit recognized in the second quarter of 2011. The change in net income (loss) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 is also a result of the net gains on Debt Repurchases and declines in operating expenses described above, offset by continuing declines in print revenues as well as the increase in amortization expense also described above.

Basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”) was $1.05 and $2.19 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. Basic and diluted EPS was $(12.01) and $(10.92) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. See Item 1, “Financial Statements (Unaudited)” - Note 2, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – Earnings (Loss) Per Share” for further details and computations of basic and diluted EPS.

Non-GAAP Statistical Measures

Advertising sales is a non-GAAP statistical measure and consists of sales of advertising in print directories distributed during the period and Internet-based products and services with respect to which such advertising first appeared publicly during the period. It is important to distinguish advertising sales from net revenues, which under GAAP are recognized under the deferral and amortization method. Advertising sales in current periods will be recognized as gross advertising revenues in future periods as a result of the deferral and amortization method of revenue recognition. Advertising sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $334.2 million and $630.6 million, respectively, representing a decline of $45.1 million, or 11.9%, and $102.6 million, or 14.0%, from advertising sales of $379.3 million and $733.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.

In order to provide more visibility into what the Company will book as revenue in the future, we are presenting an additional non-GAAP statistical measure called bookings, which represent sales activity associated with our print directories and Internet-based marketing solutions during the period. Bookings associated with our local customers represent signed contracts during the period. Bookings associated with our national customers represent what has been published or fulfilled during the period. Bookings for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $275.1 million and $579.6 million, respectively, representing a decline of $41.2 million, or 13.0%, and $87.6 million, or 13.1%, from bookings of $316.3 million and $667.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.

27


The decrease in advertising sales and bookings for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 is related to our print products and is a result of continuing declines in new and recurring business, mainly driven by (1) customer attrition, (2) declines in overall advertising spending by our customers, (3) the significant impact of the weak local business conditions on consumer spending in our customers’ markets, (4) an increase in competition and more fragmentation in local business search and (5) the migration of customers to digital marketing solutions. Declines in print advertising sales and bookings are partially offset by increased advertising sales and bookings associated with our digital marketing solutions, driven by new partnerships, a focus on providing targeted solution bundled packages to our customers, new digital products and services and the migration of customers to digital marketing solutions.

Notes

Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes

In conjunction with the Note Repurchases, the Company repurchased $98.2 million aggregate principal amount of Dex One Senior Notes at a rate of 27.0% of par. As of June 30, 2012, the outstanding carrying value of the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes totaled $212.3 million. Interest on the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes is payable semi-annually on March 31st and September 30th of each year, commencing on March 31, 2010 through January 29, 2017. The Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes accrue interest at an annual rate of 12% for cash interest payments and 14% if the Company elects PIK interest payments. The Company may elect, no later than two business days prior to the beginning of any such semi-annual interest period, whether to make each interest payment on the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes (i) entirely in cash or (ii) 50% in cash and 50% in PIK interest, which is capitalized as additional senior subordinated notes. In the absence of such an election for any subsequent semi-annual interest period, interest on the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes will be payable in the form of the interest payment for the semi-annual interest period immediately preceding such subsequent semi-annual interest period. For the semi-annual interest period ending March 31, 2012, the Company made interest payments 50% in cash and 50% in PIK interest, as permitted by the indenture governing the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes, resulting in the issuance of an additional $10.5 million of Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes. The Company will continue to make interest payments on the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes 50% in cash and 50% in PIK interest for the semi-annual interest period ending September 30, 2012.
  
Impact of Fresh Start Accounting

In conjunction with our adoption of fresh start accounting, an adjustment was established to record our outstanding debt at fair value on the Fresh Start Reporting Date. The Company was required to record our Credit Facilities at a discount as a result of their fair value on the Fresh Start Reporting Date. Therefore, the carrying amount of these debt obligations is lower than the principal amount due at maturity. A total discount of $120.2 million was recorded upon adoption of fresh start accounting associated with our Credit Facilities, of which $47.4 million remains unamortized at June 30, 2012, as shown in the following table.

In conjunction with the Credit Facility Repurchases, we accelerated amortization of fair value adjustments to our Credit Facilities of $2.0 million, which partially offset the net gain on Credit Facility Repurchases recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2012. See Item 2, “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations - Recent Trends and Developments Related to Our Business: Significant Financing Developments” for additional information.

Liquidity and Cash Flows
The Company’s primary sources of liquidity are existing cash on hand and cash flows generated from operations. The Company’s primary liquidity requirements will be to fund operations and service its indebtedness. The Company’s ability to meet its debt service requirements will be dependent on its ability to generate sufficient cash flows from operations. The primary sources of cash flows will consist mainly of cash receipts from the sale of our marketing solutions and can be impacted by, among other factors, general local business conditions, the continuing decline in the use of our print products, an increase in competition and more fragmentation in the local business search market, consumer confidence and the level of demand for our advertising products and services.

Based on current financial projections, for at least the next 12-15 months, the Company expects to be able to continue to generate cash flows from operations in amounts sufficient to fund operations and capital expenditures, as well as meet debt service requirements. The Company’s financial projections also include excess cash flow that will be used to fund mandatory accelerated debt repayments at par due to cash flow sweep requirements under our Credit Facilities, as well as voluntary debt repayments at a discount to par resulting from the Amendments to our Credit Facilities and cash tender offers to purchase amounts outstanding under the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes. However, no assurances can be made that our business will generate sufficient cash flows from operations to enable us to fund these prospective cash requirements since the current information used in our financial projections could change in the future as a result of changes in estimates and assumptions as well as risks noted in Part I - Item 1A, “Risk Factors” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

The Amendments provide greater flexibility to repurchase amounts outstanding under our Credit Facilities. As noted above, on March 23, 2012, RHDI, DME Inc. and DMW Inc. collectively utilized cash on hand of $69.5 million to repurchase loans under the Credit Facilities of $142.1 million. We may from time to time seek to repurchase additional amounts outstanding under our Credit Facilities, as permitted by the Amendments. We also have the ability to repurchase the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes in the open market. On April 19, 2012, the Company utilized cash on hand of $26.5 million to repurchase $98.2 million aggregate principal amount of Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes. We may also from time to time seek to retire or purchase additional Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes through cash purchases in open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise, subject to applicable securities laws and regulations. Such purchases, if any, will depend on prevailing market conditions, our liquidity requirements, contractual restrictions and other factors. The amounts involved may be material.

Each of our Credit Facilities require significant balloon payments upon maturity in October 2014. If the Company is unable to extend the maturity or significantly reduce our outstanding indebtedness prior to maturity by either (1) open market repurchases as permitted by the Amendments to our Credit Facilities, (2) obtaining additional financing and/or (3) refinancing our existing indebtedness, we will not be able to generate cash flows from operations in amounts sufficient to fund operations and capital expenditures and/or satisfy debt service requirements at that time. In addition, if the Company was to become non-compliant with restrictive covenants under our debt agreements prior to October 2014, default provisions would be triggered under our Credit Facilities and outstanding balances could become due immediately. The Company continues to monitor and assess all available options and opportunities that would allow us to accomplish these financing initiatives; however, no assurances can be made that these financing initiatives will be attained.

As provided for in our Credit Facilities, each of the Company’s operating subsidiaries are permitted to fund a share of the Parent Company’s interest obligations on the Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes. Other funds, based on a percentage of each operating subsidiaries’ excess cash flow, as defined in each credit agreement, may be provided to the Parent Company to fund specific activities, such as acquisitions.  In addition, each of our operating subsidiaries are permitted to send up to $5 million annually to the Parent Company. Lastly, our operating subsidiaries fund on a proportionate basis those expenses paid by the Parent Company to fund the daily operations of our operating subsidiaries. Except for certain limited situations, including those noted above, the Credit Facilities restrict the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries to dividend assets to any third party, and of our subsidiaries to pay dividends, loans or advances to us.

The Company currently believes that the limitations and restrictions imposed by our Credit Facilities noted above will not impact our ability to fund operations and capital expenditures, as well as meet debt service requirements, specifically at the Parent Company level. However, no assurances can be made that these limitations and restrictions will not have an impact on our ability to fund operations and capital expenditures, as well as meet debt service requirements specifically at the Parent Company level in the future.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Contractual Obligations
As a result of the Debt Repurchases, we have presented updated annual commitments for principal and interest payments on our debt obligations for the next five years and thereafter as of June 30, 2012. The debt repayments and related interest payments as presented in this table include (1) the scheduled principal and interest payments under the current debt agreements, (2) an estimate of additional debt repayments and the related impact on interest payments resulting from cash flow sweep requirements under our Credit Facilities and (3) assumes the issuance of additional Dex One Senior Subordinated Notes and the related impact on interest payments as a result of the Company's election to make PIK interest payments commencing for the semi-annual interest period ending March 31, 2012 until maturity. Our Credit Facilities require that a certain percentage of annual excess cash flow, as defined in the debt agreements, be used to repay amounts under the Credit Facilities. The debt repayments exclude fair value adjustments required by GAAP as a result of our adoption of fresh start accounting of $47.4 million, as these adjustments do not impact our payment obligations.
During the second quarter of 2012, we entered into a five year agreement with an outsource service provider for datacenter / server assessment, migration and ongoing management and administration services. We also entered into a software licensing and services agreement with an Information Technology ("IT") outsource service provider covering a three year term. Contractual obligations associated with these agreements are included in the table below under the heading "Unconditional Purchase Obligations." There have been no significant changes to the other contractual obligations presented in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Interest Rate Risk and Risk Management

The Company’s Credit Facilities each bear interest at variable rates and, accordingly, our earnings and cash flow are affected by changes in interest rates. Management believes that it is prudent to mitigate the interest rate risk on a portion of its variable rate borrowings. To satisfy our objectives and requirements, the Company has entered into interest rate swap and interest rate cap agreements, which have not been designated as cash flow hedges, to manage our exposure to interest rate fluctuations on our variable rate debt.


32


The Company has entered into the following interest rate swaps that effectively convert $300.0 million, or approximately 16%, of the Company’s variable rate debt to fixed rate debt as of June 30, 2012. Since the RHDI Amended and Restated Credit Facility and the Dex Media West Amended and Restated Credit Facility are subject to a LIBOR floor of 3.00% and the LIBOR rate is below that floor at June 30, 2012, both credit facilities are effectively fixed rate debt until such time LIBOR exceeds the stated floor. At June 30, 2012, approximately 90% of our total debt outstanding consisted of variable rate debt, excluding the effect of our interest rate swaps. Including the effect of our interest rate swaps, total fixed rate debt comprised approximately 25% of our total debt portfolio as of June 30, 2012.

Under the terms of the interest rate swap agreements, we receive variable interest based on the three-month LIBOR and pay a weighted average fixed rate of 1.7%. The weighted average rate received on our interest rate swaps was 0.5% for the six months ended June 30, 2012. These periodic payments and receipts are recorded as interest expense.

Under the terms of the interest rate cap agreements, the Company will receive payments based on the spread in rates if the three-month LIBOR rate increases above the cap rates noted in the table below. The Company paid $2.1 million for the interest rate cap agreements entered into during the first quarter of 2010. We are not required to make any future payments related to these interest rate cap agreements.

We use derivative financial instruments for hedging purposes only and not for trading or speculative purposes. By using derivative financial instruments to hedge exposures to changes in interest rates, the Company exposes itself to credit risk and market risk. Credit risk is the possible failure of the counterparty to perform under the terms of the derivative contract. When the fair value of a derivative contract is positive, the counterparty owes the Company, which creates credit risk for the Company. When the fair value of a derivative contract is negative, the Company owes the counterparty and, therefore, it is not subject to credit risk. The Company minimizes the credit risk in derivative financial instruments by entering into transactions with major financial institutions with credit ratings of A- or higher, or the equivalent dependent upon the credit rating agency. Market risk is the adverse effect on the value of a financial instrument that results from a change in interest rates. The market risk associated with interest-rate contracts is managed by establishing and monitoring parameters that limit the types and degree of market risk that may be undertaken.

Market Risk Sensitive Instruments

All derivative financial instruments are recognized as either assets or liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets with measurement at fair value. On a quarterly basis, the fair values of our interest rate swaps and interest rate caps are determined based on quoted market prices. These derivative instruments have not been designated as cash flow hedges and as such, the initial fair value and any subsequent gains or losses on the change in the fair value of the interest rate swaps and interest rate caps are reported in earnings as a component of interest expense. Any gains or losses related to the quarterly fair value adjustments are presented as an operating activity on the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Management conducted an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) as of June 30, 2012. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that such disclosure controls and procedures are effective and sufficient to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files or submits under the Securities Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specific in the SEC’s rules and forms. In addition, based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that such disclosure controls and procedures are effective and sufficient to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files or submits under the Securities Act of 1934 is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

(b) Changes in Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting

There have not been any changes in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting during the Company’s most recent fiscal quarter that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

We are subject to various lawsuits, claims, and regulatory and administrative proceedings arising out of our business covering matters such as general commercial, governmental regulations, intellectual property, employment, tax and other actions. In the opinion of management, the ultimate resolution of these matters, including the two cases described below, will not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, cash flows or financial position.
 
Beginning on October 23, 2009, a series of putative securities class action lawsuits were commenced against certain former Company officers in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired our publicly traded securities between July 26, 2007 and the time we filed for bankruptcy on May 28, 2009, alleging that such officers issued false and misleading statements regarding our business and financial condition and seeking damages and equitable relief. On August 19, 2010, an amended consolidated class action complaint was filed as the operative securities class action complaint (the “Securities Class Action Complaint”). The Company is not named as a defendant in the Securities Class Action Complaint. On December 30, 2011, the parties to the Securities Class Action Complaint entered into a memorandum of understanding containing the essential terms of a settlement of all disputes between them. On February 17, 2012, a formal stipulation of settlement was filed with the court. Pursuant to the stipulation of settlement, in exchange for a complete release of all claims, the Company's director's and officer's liability insurers will create a $25 million settlement fund for the benefit of the settlement class. The Company is not making any financial contribution to the settlement fund. The stipulation of settlement was approved by the court on June 19, 2012.

On December 7, 2009, a putative ERISA class action lawsuit was commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of certain participants in, or beneficiaries of, the R.H. Donnelley 401(k) Savings Plan at any time between July 26, 2007 and January 29, 2010 and whose plan accounts included investments in R.H. Donnelley common stock. The putative ERISA class action complaint contains allegations against certain current and former directors, officers and employees similar to those set forth in the Securities Class Action Complaint as well as allegations of breaches of fiduciary duties under ERISA and seeks damages and equitable relief. The Company is not named as a defendant in this ERISA class action. On June 21, 2012, the parties to the ERISA class action suit entered into a memorandum of understanding containing the essential terms of a settlement of all disputes between them. On July 9, 2012, a formal settlement agreement and release was filed with the court. Pursuant to the settlement agreement and release, in exchange for a complete release of all claims, the Company's fiduciary liability insurers will create a $2.1 million settlement fund for the benefit of the settlement class. The Company is not making any financial contribution to the settlement fund. The settlement agreement and release is subject to final court approval, which we expect to receive during the second half of 2012.
