The company operates primarily in the United States (U.S.), Canada, the United Kingdom (U.K.), and the Republic of Ireland, and has worldwide presence as its Mercury Man logo is displayed in approximately 40,000 floral shops in 150 countries. Segments The company operates in three segments: Consumer, Florist and International. Consumer Through its Consumer segment, the company is a direct marketer of floral and gift products for consumers, primarily in the U.S. and Canada. The Consumer segment operates primarily through the www.ftd.com Website, associated mobile sites, and the 1-800-SEND-FTD telephone number. Orders are transmitted to its floral network members or third-party suppliers for processing and delivery. The majority of consumer orders are hand-delivered by its floral network members, who provide same-day and future-day delivery services. The other consumer orders are fulfilled and shipped directly to the consumer in a gift box by third parties, who provide next-day and future-day delivery services. Florist Through its Florist segment, the company provides products and services to its floral network members, which include traditional retail florists and other non-florist retail locations, primarily in the U.S. and Canada. The company also provides products and services to other companies in need of floral and gifting solutions. The company’s comprehensive suite of services includes, among other things, access to the FTD brand and the Mercury Man logo, which are supported by various FTD marketing campaigns; clearinghouse and order transmission services that enable its members to send, receive, and deliver floral and gift orders; access to the floral network; directory publication services; credit card processing services; e-commerce Web site services; online advertising tools; and system support services. The company’s large floral network provides an order fulfillment vehicle for its consumer orders that allows the company to offer same-day delivery capability (subject to certain limitations) to recipients throughout the U.S. and Canada. The company sells products to floral network members, including fresh-cut flowers, branded and non-branded containers, packaging, promotional products, and a variety of other floral-related supplies. The company also provides point-of-sale systems and related technology services that enable its floral network members to transmit and receive orders and manage several back-office functions of a retailer's business, including accounting, customer relationship management, direct marketing campaigns, delivery route management, and event planning. International The International segment consists of the company’s international business, Interflora, which operates primarily in the U.K. and the Republic of Ireland. Interflora is a direct marketer of floral and gift products for consumers and operates primarily through its www.interflora.co.uk and www.interflora.ie Websites, associated mobile sites, and various telephone numbers. The company’s portfolio of brands also includes Flying Flowers, Flowers Direct, and Drake Algar. Orders are transmitted to floral network members or third-party suppliers for processing and delivery. The majority of consumer orders are hand-delivered by its floral network members, who provide same-day delivery, including three-hour, as well as, morning and evening delivery options, and future-day delivery services. The remaining consumer orders are fulfilled and shipped directly to the consumer in a gift box by third parties, who provide next-day and future-day delivery services. Interflora also provides products and services to floral network members, funeral directors, and to other companies in need of floral and gifting solutions. These include access to the Interflora brand, services that enable its members to send, receive, and deliver floral and gift orders, and e-commerce Website services.

The company’s large floral network provides an order fulfillment vehicle for its consumer orders that allows the company to offer multiple delivery options (subject to certain limitations) to recipients throughout the U.K. and the Republic of Ireland. Seasonality The company’s revenues and operating results across all three of its segments exhibit seasonality. Revenues and operating results tend to be lower for the quarter ending September 30 because none of the most popular floral and gift-giving holidays, which include Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving, fall within that quarter. In addition, depending on the year, Easter and the U.K. Mother's Day sometimes fall within the quarter ending March 31 and sometimes fall within the quarter ending June 30. Business Strategy The company’s vision is to be a trusted floral and gifting company worldwide. Proprietary Rights The company’s trademarks include the Mercury Man logo, FTD, Interflora, Flying Flowers, Flowers Direct, and Drake Algar.
