Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
The information set forth below is being furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 of Form 8-K as a result of its inclusion in a preliminary offering memorandum, dated September 28, 2005, of The TriZetto Group, Inc. (the Company) in connection with the marketing of a proposed private placement of its convertible senior notes due 2025.
On September 13, 2005, the Company received a letter from the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) regarding, among other things, its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2004. The Company believes that the letter was issued by the SEC in the normal course of its mandate under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 to regularly review the periodic filings of all publicly-traded companies. Among other things, the letter asked the Company to comment on certain of its accounting practices, including those related to the Companys recognition of revenue from set-up services associated with its hosted offerings, its capitalization of up-front fees relating to the establishment of certain hosting and outsourcing contracts.
The Company believes that its accounting practices have been proper. In addition, the Company has received unqualified opinions from its independent registered public accounting firm for its financial statements for the 2003 and 2004 fiscal years. Further, even if the Company were to change its practice regarding set-up services and defer the recognition of revenue and expenses related to such services, the Company believes that such accounting changes would not have a material affect on its previously reported results of operations. The Company believes that its accounting practices in respect of the capitalization of up-front fees is correct and that there is no other appropriate alternative method of accounting for such fees. However, there can be no assurance that it will not change its accounting policies relating to these questions following discussion with the SEC staff.
The foregoing information is furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 and shall not be deemed filed for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liability of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
