The loss of the Master Services Agreement ("MSA") with United Airlines
contributed approximately $25 million to the decline in net revenue and $19
million to the decline in each of operating income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
for the first quarter of 2013 compared to 2012. Excluding the impact of this
loss, net revenue increased by $23 million, operating income increased by $22
million, EBITDA increased by $17 million and Adjusted EBITDA increased by $6
million, compared to 2012.

average rate of agency commissions increased 3%.

Interest costs of $70 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were
$3 million higher due to higher effective interest rates.

three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $29 million of cash provided by
operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

Travelport Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and may not be
comparable to similarly named measures used by other companies. We believe
this measure provides management with a more complete understanding of the
underlying results and trends and an enhanced overall understanding of our
financial liquidity and prospects for the future. Adjusted EBITDA is the
primary metric for measuring our business results, forecasting and determining
future capital investment allocations and is used by the Board of Directors to
determine incentive compensation. Capital expenditures, which impact
depreciation and amortization, interest expense and income tax expense, are
reviewed separately by management. Travelport Adjusted EBITDA is disclosed so
investors have the same tools available to management when evaluating the
results of Travelport. Travelport Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA
adjusted to exclude items we believe potentially restrict our ability to
assess the results of our underlying business. Travelport Adjusted EBITDA is a
critical measure as it is required to calculate our key financial ratios under
our credit agreement covenants. These ratios use a number which is broadly
computed from the Travelport Adjusted EBITDA for the last twelve months and
the consolidated net debt, as at the balance sheet date and is known as the
Total Leverage Ratio. Travelport is currently in compliance with all of our
financial covenants. A breach of these covenants could result in a default
under the senior secured credit agreement and the indentures governing the

^(1) Other adjusting items relate to payments for costs included within
operating income, but excluded from Travelport Adjusted EBITDA. These include
(i) $13 million and $3 million of corporate cost payments during the three
months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and (ii) $4 million and
$3 million of litigation related cost payments during the three months ended
March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Unlevered free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure and may not be comparable to
similarly named measures used by other companies. Unlevered free cash flow is
defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities of continuing
operations adjusted to exclude cash interest payments and include capital
expenditures and capital lease repayments. We believe unlevered free cash flow
provides management and investors with a more complete understanding of the
underlying liquidity of the core operating businesses and its ability to meet
current and future financing and investing needs.
