Effective February 2, 2023, Christopher Halpin has been appointed to the newly created role of Chief Operating Officer and will continue in his role as Chief Financial Officer of IAC Inc. (“IAC” or the “Registrant”). Biographical information for Mr. Halpin is set forth under the caption “Information Concerning IAC Executive Officers Who Are Not Directors” in the definitive proxy statement filed by the Registrant with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 29, 2022 and is incorporated by reference herein.


In addition, effective March 1, 2023 (the “Effective Date”), Mark Stein, Chief Strategy Officer of IAC, will step down from his current role to become Senior Advisor to IAC, in which capacity he will primarily oversee the Registrant’s Ask Media Group business and a number of IAC’s minority investments.


In connection with this transition, the employment agreement between the Registrant and Mr. Stein, dated as of June 28, 2018 (the “Employment Agreement”), will be amended to reflect Mr. Stein’s Senior Advisor title and a new term (from March 1, 2023 through March 1, 2024 (the “New Term”)). In addition, the amended agreement will provide for the continued vesting of Mr. Stein’s IAC equity awards through the end of the New Term and continued salary payments (at his current base salary rate ($550,000)) through the end of the New Term upon a termination of employment without cause or resignation for good reason. The other terms and conditions of the Employment Agreement (which was filed as Exhibit 10.20 to the Registrant’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021) remain unchanged.  


Upon the Effective Date, Mr. Stein will cease to be an executive officer of IAC (as defined under the rules and regulations promulgated by the SEC).
