outstanding, upon completion of this offering. Of the outstanding shares, 7,878,788 class A shares and none of the class B shares, including the class A shares sold in this offering, are freely tradable. About            of the outstanding shares will be eligible for resale after the expiration of the lock-up period. Shares of our common stock held by our affiliates will continue to be subject to the volume and other restrictions of Rule 144 under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, or the Securities Act. Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated and SG Cowen & Co., LLC may, in their sole discretion and at any time without notice, release all or any portion of the class A shares or the class B shares subject to the lock-up.

        In addition, immediately following this offering, we intend to file a registration statement registering under the Securities Act the shares of common stock reserved for issuance under our employee stock option plan. See the information under the heading "Shares Eligible for Future Sale" for a more detailed description of the shares that will be available for future sales upon completion of this offering.

    We do not intend to pay dividends for the foreseeable future.

        We've never declared or paid any cash dividends on our common stock. For the foreseeable future, we intend to retain any earnings to finance the development and expansion of our business, and we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on our class A common stock. See "Dividend Policy."

    Provisions in our charter documents and Delaware law may delay or prevent our acquisition by a third party.

        Our certificate of incorporation and bylaws contain several provisions that may make it more difficult for a third party to acquire control of us without the approval of our board of directors. These provisions may make it more difficult or expensive for a third party to acquire a majority of our outstanding common stock. These provisions also may delay, prevent or deter a merger, acquisition, tender offer, proxy contest or other transaction that might otherwise result in our shareholders' receiving a premium over the market price for their common stock. See "Description of Capital Stock."
