the OpenTable Restaurant Industry Index for the fourth quarter and full year

"As anticipated, Hurricane Sandy contributed to the decline in industry growth
during the fourth quarter," said Matt Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of
OpenTable. "Restaurants in the New York and Washington DC area were hit
particularly hard during the quarter, while growth in other major metro areas
and the U.S. overall was essentially flat year-over-year."
OpenTable Restaurant Industry Index
The OpenTable Restaurant Industry Index is based on data gathered from more
than 9,000 reservation-taking restaurants* sampled from the OpenTable network
in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Each percentage indicates a year-over-year
increase or decrease in the number of guests served in these
reservation-taking restaurants, as recorded by the restaurants in their
reservation books. Those guests include those who honored reservations made by
phone or online as well as those who walked in without a reservation.
