Move Inc., which operates Realtor.com and Move.com property-search Web sites, today reported net income of $1.7 million in the second quarter, compared with net income of $3.3 million in second-quarter 2005.

Excluding stock-based compensation expense, net income would have been $4.3 million in second-quarter 2006, the company reported. Total revenue for the second quarter was $73.9 million, up 17 percent from total revenue in second-quarter 2005.

Net income applicable to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2006 was 1 cent per share, compared with net income of 2 cents per share in second-quarter 2005. Excluding stock-based compensation expense, net income would have been $4.3 million for the second quarter of 2006.

EBITDA in the second quarter of 2005 included $4.2 million in expenses related to the company’s obligation to advance the defense costs of former officers.
