Please refer to the ANGI Homeservices Q4 2020 earnings release for further detail.
|·||Revenue increased 54% to $83.8 million driven by:|
|o||24% growth in total subscribers to 1.5 million|
|o||26% growth in average revenue per subscriber|
|·||Operating loss decreased from $11.4 million to $0.8 million while Adjusted EBITDA grew to $1.5 million compared to a loss of $8.1 million in Q4 2019 driven, in part, by higher gross margins and lower sales and marketing as a percentage of revenue, partially offset by $3.7 million in spin-related transaction costs.|
Page 3 of 16
|·||In January 2021, Vimeo raised $300 million of primary equity in two tranches, an initial raise of $200 million at a $5.2 billion pre-money valuation and a subsequent raise of $100 million at a $5.7 billion pre-money valuation. This follows a $150 million equity raise in November 2020.|
|·||Revenue increased 33% to $74.2 million due to 87% higher Performance Marketing revenue and 16% higher Display Advertising revenue.|
|·||Operating income increased 86% to $28.4 million due to Adjusted EBITDA increasing 81% to $30.9 million.|
|·||Revenue increased 9% to $182.4 million due to a 39% increase at Ask Media Group, partially offset by 37% decrease at Desktop.|
|·||Operating income decreased 26% to $16.0 million due to Adjusted EBITDA decreasing 24% to $16.9 million. The lower Adjusted EBITDA was driven by lower Desktop profits due to the negative impact from browser policy changes, partially offset by higher Ask Media Group profits.|
Emerging & Other
|·||Revenue increased 106% to $149.2 million due primarily to:|
|o||The acquisition of Care.com (acquired on February 11, 2020)|
|o||59% growth at Bluecrew|
|o||2% growth at Mosaic Group to $53.6 million (ended Q4 2020 with 3.8 million subscribers)|
|·||Operating loss increased from $0.5 million to $8.9 million reflecting:|
|o||A decrease of $6.7 million of operating income in Q4 2020 as Q4 2019 included $6.7 million of income due to an adjustment in the expected amount of contingent consideration to be paid in connection with a previous acquisition|
|o||$5.4 million higher Adjusted EBITDA losses due primarily to higher losses at IAC Films and investment at Care.com in Q4 2020 including $8.5 million of transaction-related items ($7.0 million in transaction-related costs and $1.5 million in deferred revenue write-offs), partially offset by the sale of CollegeHumor Media in Q1 2020 (which incurred losses in Q4 2019)|
Page 4 of 16
Operating loss increased $6.7 million primarily driven by $4.3 million higher Adjusted EBITDA losses, due mainly to increased compensation costs and $2.2 million costs in connection with the spin-off of Vimeo, and a $3.2 million increase in stock-based compensation expense due primarily to modification charges in Q4 2020.
The Company recorded an income tax provision of $48.0 million in Q4 2020 for an effective tax rate of 9% which is lower than the statutory rate due primarily to excess tax benefits generated by the exercise and vesting of stock-based awards. The Company recorded an income tax benefit of $7.2 million in Q4 2019 due primarily to excess tax benefits generated by the exercise and vesting of stock-based awards.
Free Cash Flow
For the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, Free Cash Flow decreased $60.9 million to $93.0 million due primarily to lower Adjusted EBITDA, partially offset by lower capital expenditures.

IAC has various dilutive securities. The table below details these securities as well as potential dilution at various stock prices (shares in millions; rounding differences may occur).
|Absolute Shares as of 1/29/21||85.8||85.8||85.8||85.8||85.8||85.8|
|Restricted stock, RSUs and non-publicy traded subsidiary denominated equity awards||4.7||1.0||1.0||1.0||1.0||1.0|
|Total Diluted Shares Outstanding||87.7||87.7||87.7||87.7||87.7|
The dilutive securities presentation is calculated using the methods and assumptions described below, which are different from those used for GAAP dilution, which is calculated based on the treasury stock method.
The Company currently settles all equity awards on a net basis; therefore, the dilutive effect is presented as the net number of shares expected to be issued upon vesting or exercise, and in the case of options, assuming no proceeds are received by the Company. Any required withholding taxes are paid in cash by the Company on behalf of the employees assuming a withholding tax rate of 50%. In addition, the estimated income tax benefit from the tax deduction received upon the vesting or exercise of these awards is assumed to be used to repurchase IAC shares. Withholding taxes paid by the Company on behalf of the employees upon net settlement would be $741.6 million, assuming a stock price of $209.95 and a 50% withholding rate. The table above assumes no change in the fair value estimate of the non-publicly traded subsidiary denominated equity awards from the values used at December 31, 2020.
Vimeo, Inc. Equity Awards and the Treatment of the Related Dilutive Effect
For purposes of the presentation of dilution, Vimeo denominated equity awards held by Vimeo employees are assumed to be exercised and settled in Vimeo common shares after the Spin-off; therefore, no dilution from these awards is included in the table above. The aggregate intrinsic value of Vimeo outstanding awards as of January 29, 2021, assuming a per share price of $35.35, which is equal to the per share price based upon a $6.0 billion equity valuation, is $405.1 million. If Vimeo chooses to settle these awards on a net basis the withholding taxes payable by Vimeo on behalf of its employees upon net settlement would be $202.6 million, assuming a 50% withholding rate and 5.7 million shares of Vimeo common stock would be issued. After the Spin-off, Vimeo does have the ability to settle these awards on a gross basis, and employees may sell shares to cover the withholding tax obligation.
ANGI Homeservices Equity Awards and the Treatment of the Related Dilutive Effect
Certain ANGI Homeservices equity awards can be settled either in IAC or ANGI Homeservices common shares at IAC’s election. For purposes of the dilution calculation above, these awards are assumed to be settled in shares of ANGI Homeservices common stock; therefore, no dilution from these awards is included.

IAC PRINCIPLES OF FINANCIAL REPORTING
IAC reports Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow, both of which are supplemental measures to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These are among the primary metrics by which we evaluate the performance of our businesses, on which our internal budgets are based and by which management is compensated. We believe that investors should have access to, and we are obligated to provide, the same set of tools that we use in analyzing our results. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, however, should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. IAC endeavors to compensate for the limitations of the non-GAAP measures presented by providing the comparable GAAP measures with equal or greater prominence and descriptions of the reconciling items, including quantifying such items, to derive the non-GAAP measures. We encourage investors to examine the reconciling adjustments between the GAAP and non-GAAP measures, which are included in this release. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for a full year.
Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures
Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) is defined as operating income excluding: (1) stock-based compensation expense; (2) depreciation; and (3) acquisition-related items consisting of (i) amortization of intangible assets and impairments of goodwill and intangible assets, if applicable, and (ii) gains and losses recognized on changes in the fair value of contingent consideration arrangements. We believe this measure is useful for analysts and investors as this measure allows a more meaningful comparison between our performance and that of our competitors. The above items are excluded from our Adjusted EBITDA measure because these items are non-cash in nature. Adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations because it excludes the impact of certain expenses.
Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures. We believe Free Cash Flow is useful to investors because it represents the cash that our operating businesses generate, before taking into account non-operational cash movements. Free Cash Flow has certain limitations in that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the cash balance for the period, nor does it represent the residual cash flow for discretionary expenditures. For example, it does not take into account stock repurchases. Therefore, we think it is important to evaluate Free Cash Flow along with our consolidated statement of cash flows.
Page 14 of 16
IAC PRINCIPLES OF FINANCIAL REPORTING (continued)
Non-Cash Expenses That Are Excluded From Adjusted EBITDA
Stock-based compensation expense consists principally of expense associated with awards issued by certain subsidiaries of the Company and expense related to awards that were granted under various IAC stock and annual incentive plans. These expenses are not paid in cash and we view the economic cost of stock-based awards to be the dilution to our share base; we also include the related shares in our fully diluted shares outstanding for GAAP earnings per share using the treasury stock method. The Company is currently settling all stock-based awards on a net basis and remits the required tax-withholding amounts from its current funds.
Please see page 7 for a summary of our dilutive securities, including stock-based awards as of January 29, 2021 and a description of the calculation methodology.
Depreciation is a non-cash expense relating to our building, capitalized software, leasehold improvements and equipment and is computed using the straight-line method to allocate the cost of depreciable assets to operations over their estimated useful lives, or, in the case of leasehold improvements, the lease term, if shorter.
Amortization of intangible assets and impairments of goodwill and intangible assets are non-cash expenses related primarily to acquisitions. At the time of an acquisition, the identifiable definite-lived intangible assets of the acquired company, such as technology, service professional relationships, customer lists and user base, memberships, trade names and content, are valued and amortized over their estimated lives. Value is also assigned to acquired indefinite-lived intangible assets, which comprise trade names and trademarks, and goodwill that are not subject to amortization. An impairment is recorded when the carrying value of an intangible asset or goodwill exceeds its fair value. We believe that intangible assets represent costs incurred by the acquired company to build value prior to acquisition and the related amortization and impairment charges of intangible assets or goodwill, if applicable, are not ongoing costs of doing business.
Gains and losses recognized on changes in the fair value of contingent consideration arrangements are accounting adjustments to report contingent consideration liabilities at fair value. These adjustments can be highly variable and are excluded from our assessment of performance because they are considered non-operational in nature and, therefore, are not indicative of current or future performance or the ongoing cost of doing business.

IAC (NASDAQ: IAC) builds companies. We are guided by curiosity, a questioning of the status quo, and a desire to invent or acquire new products and brands. From the single seed that started as IAC over two decades ago have emerged 10 public companies and generations of exceptional leaders. We will always evolve, but our basic principles of financially-disciplined opportunism will never change. IAC today operates Vimeo, Dotdash and Care.com, among many others, and has majority ownership of ANGI Homeservices, which includes HomeAdvisor, Angie’s List and Handy. The Company is headquartered in New York City and has business operations and satellite offices worldwide.
