NOTE 1—THE COMPANY AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Nature of Operations
Angi Inc., formerly ANGI Homeservices, Inc., (“Angi Inc.,” the “Company,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) connects quality home service professionals with consumers across 400 different categories, from repairing and remodeling homes to cleaning and landscaping. Over 260,000 domestic service professionals actively sought consumer matches, completed jobs, or advertised work through Angi Inc. platforms during the three months ended September 30, 2021. Additionally, consumers turned to at least one of our brands to find a professional for approximately 33 million projects during the twelve months ended September 30, 2021.
The Company has 2 operating segments: (i) North America (United States and Canada), which includes Angi Ads and Leads and Angi Services; and (ii) Europe. The brands for North America operate as follows: Angi Ads operates under the Angi (formerly Angie’s List) brand, Angi Leads operates primarily under the HomeAdvisor, powered by Angi brand, and Angi Services operates primarily under the Handy brand.
As used herein, “Angi Inc.,” the “Company,” “we,” “our,” “us,” and similar terms refer to Angi Inc. and its subsidiaries (unless the context requires otherwise).

At September 30, 2021, IAC/InterActiveCorp (“IAC”) owned 84.6% and 98.2% of the economic interest and voting interest, respectively, of the Company.

Basis of Presentation and Consolidation
The Company prepares its consolidated financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, all entities that are wholly-owned by the Company and all entities in which the Company has a controlling financial interest. All intercompany transactions and balances between and among the Company and its subsidiaries have been eliminated. All intercompany transactions between (i) Angi Inc. and (ii) IAC and its subsidiaries are considered to be effectively settled for cash at the time the transaction is recorded. See “Note 10—Related Party Transactions with IAC” for additional information on transactions between Angi Inc. and IAC.

The Company is included within IAC’s tax group for purposes of federal and consolidated state income tax return filings. For the purpose of these financial statements, income taxes have been computed as if Angi Inc. filed tax returns on a standalone, separate tax return basis. Any differences between taxes currently payable to or receivable from IAC under the tax sharing agreement between the Company and IAC and the current tax provision computed on an as if standalone, separate return basis for GAAP are reflected as adjustments to additional paid-in capital and as financing activities within the statement of cash flows.

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP for interim financial information and with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for complete annual financial statements. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited financial statements include all normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year. The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the annual audited financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2020.

COVID-19 Update
The impact on the Company from the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures designed to contain its spread has been varied and volatile.

As previously disclosed, the initial impact of COVID-19 on the Company resulted in a decline in demand for service requests, driven primarily by decreases in demand in certain categories of jobs (particularly discretionary indoor projects). While we experienced a rebound in service requests in the second half of 2020 and through early 2021, service requests did start to decline in May 2021 compared to the comparable months of 2020 as a result of the surge in 2020 and due to impacts of

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)
(Unaudited)
the brand integration initiative launched on March 17, 2021. Moreover, many service professionals’ businesses had been adversely impacted by labor and material constraints and many service professionals had limited capacity to take on new business, which negatively impacted our ability to monetize this increased level of service requests through the first quarter of 2021. Although our ability to monetize service requests rebounded modestly in the second and third quarters of 2021, we still have not returned back to levels we experienced pre-COVID-19. No assurances can be provided that we will continue to be able to improve monetization, or that service professionals’ businesses will not be adversely impacted in the future.
The extent to which developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic and measures designed to curb its spread continue to impact the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations will depend on future developments, all of which are highly uncertain and many of which are beyond the Company’s control, including the continuing spread of COVID-19, the severity of resurgences of COVID-19 caused by variant strains of the virus, the effectiveness of vaccines and attitudes toward receiving them, materials and supply chain constraints, labor shortages, the scope of governmental and other restrictions on travel, discretionary services and other activity, and public reactions to these developments.
Accounting Estimates
Management of the Company is required to make certain estimates, judgments, and assumptions during the preparation of its consolidated financial statements in accordance with GAAP. These estimates, judgments, and assumptions impact the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenses and the related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates its estimates and judgments, including those related to: the fair values of cash equivalents and marketable debt securities; the carrying value of accounts receivable, including the determination of the allowance for credit losses and the determination of revenue reserves; the determination of the customer relationship period for certain costs to obtain a contract with a customer; the carrying value of right-of-use assets (“ROU assets”); the useful lives and recoverability of definite-lived intangible assets and capitalized software, leasehold improvements, and equipment; the recoverability of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets; unrecognized tax benefits; the valuation allowance for deferred income tax assets; and the fair value of and forfeiture rates for stock-based awards, among others. The Company bases its estimates and judgments on historical experience, its forecasts and budgets, and other factors that the Company considers relevant.

General Revenue Recognition
Revenue is recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to the Company’s customers and in the amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services.

The Company’s disaggregated revenue disclosures are presented in “Note 7—Segment Information.”
Deferred Revenue
Deferred revenue consists of payments that are received or are contractually due in advance of the Company’s performance obligation. The Company’s deferred revenue is reported on a contract-by-contract basis at the end of each reporting period. The Company classifies deferred revenue as current when the remaining term of the applicable subscription period or expected completion of its performance obligation is one year or less. At December 31, 2020, the current and non-current deferred revenue balances were $54.7 million and $0.2 million, respectively, and during the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recognized $52.3 million of revenue that was included in the deferred revenue balance as of December 31, 2020. At December 31, 2019, the current and non-current deferred revenue balances were $58.2 million and $0.2 million, respectively, and during the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recognized $55.7 million of revenue that was included in the deferred revenue balance as of December 31, 2019.

The current and non-current deferred revenue balances at September 30, 2021 are $60.0 million and $0.1 million, respectively. Non-current deferred revenue is included in “Other long-term liabilities” in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet.

Practical Expedients and Exemptions
As permitted under the practical expedient available under Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, the Company does not disclose the value of unsatisfied performance obligations for (i) contracts with an original expected length of one year or less, (ii) contracts with variable consideration that is allocated entirely to unsatisfied performance obligations or to a wholly unsatisfied promise accounted for under the series guidance, and (iii) contracts for which the Company recognizes revenue at the amount which the Company has the right to invoice for services performed.

Commissions Paid to Employees Pursuant to Sales Incentive Programs
The Company has determined that commissions paid to employees pursuant to certain sales incentive programs meet the requirements to be capitalized as the incremental costs to obtain a contract with a customer. When customer renewals are expected and the renewal commission is not commensurate with the initial commission, the average customer life includes renewal periods. Capitalized commissions paid to employees pursuant to these sales incentive programs are amortized over the estimated customer relationship period. The Company calculates the anticipated customer relationship period as the average customer life, which is based on historical data.

For sales incentive programs where the anticipated customer relationship period is one year or less, the Company has elected the practical expedient to expense the commissions as incurred.

Assets Recognized from the Costs to Obtain a Contract with a Customer
The Company uses a portfolio approach to assess the accounting treatment of the incremental costs to obtain a contract with a customer. The Company recognizes an asset for these costs if we expect to recover those costs. To the extent that these costs are capitalized, the resultant asset is amortized on a systematic basis consistent with the pattern of the transfer of the services to which the asset relates. The current contract assets are $40.3 million and $49.2 million at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. The non-current assets are $1.2 million and $0.4 million at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. The current and non-current capitalized costs to obtain a contract with a customer are included in “Other current assets” and “Other non-current assets” in the accompanying balance sheet.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Accounting Pronouncement Not Yet Adopted by the Company
ASU 2021-08 – Business Combinations (Topic 805), Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers

In October 2021, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued ASU No. 2021-08, which changes how entities will recognize assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination, including contract assets and contract liabilities arising from revenue contracts with customers. The provisions of ASU No. 2021-08 will require acquiring entities to recognize and measure contract assets and contract liabilities acquired in a business combination in accordance with ASU No. 2014-09 (Topic 606), Revenue from Contracts with Customers, as if it had originated the contracts. The provisions of ASU No. 2021-08 are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, with early adoption permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The Company will early adopt ASU 2021-08 effective in the fourth quarter of 2021. An entity that early adopts in an interim period is required to apply the amendments (i) retrospectively to all business combinations for which the acquisition date occurs on or after the beginning of the fiscal year that includes the interim period of early adoption and (ii) prospectively to all business combinations that occur on or after the date of initial application. Early adoption will have no material retrospective impact on the Company. The adoption of ASU 2021-08 may have a material impact on the purchase accounting for prospective business combinations.

NOTE 2—INCOME TAXES
The Company is included within IAC’s tax group for purposes of federal and consolidated state income tax return filings. In all periods presented, the income tax benefit and/or provision has been computed for the Company on an as if standalone, separate return basis and payments to and refunds from IAC for the Company’s share of IAC’s consolidated federal and state tax return liabilities/receivables calculated on this basis have been reflected within cash flows from operating activities in the accompanying consolidated statement of cash flows. The tax sharing agreement between the Company and IAC governs the parties’ respective rights, responsibilities and obligations with respect to tax matters, including responsibility for taxes attributable to the Company, entitlement to refunds, allocation of tax attributes and other matters and, therefore, ultimately governs the amount payable to or receivable from IAC with respect to income taxes. Any differences between taxes currently payable to or receivable from IAC under the tax sharing agreement and the current tax provision computed on an as if standalone, separate return basis for GAAP are reflected as adjustments to additional paid-in capital and as financing activities within the statement of cash flows.

At the end of each interim period, the Company estimates the annual expected effective income tax rate and applies that rate to its ordinary year-to-date earnings or loss. The income tax provision or benefit related to significant, unusual, or extraordinary items, if applicable, that will be separately reported or reported net of their related tax effects are individually computed and recognized in the interim period in which they occur. In addition, the effect of changes in enacted tax laws or rates, tax status, judgment on the realizability of a beginning-of-the-year deferred tax asset in future years or unrecognized tax benefits is recognized in the interim period in which the change occurs.

The computation of the annual expected effective income tax rate at each interim period requires certain estimates and assumptions including, but not limited to, the expected pre-tax income (or loss) for the year, projections of the proportion of income (and/or loss) earned and taxed in foreign jurisdictions, permanent and temporary differences, and the likelihood of the realization of deferred tax assets generated in the current year. The accounting estimates used to compute the provision or benefit for income taxes may change as new events occur, more experience is acquired, additional information is obtained or the Company’s tax environment changes. To the extent that the expected annual effective income tax rate changes during a quarter, the effect of the change on prior quarters is included in income tax provision or benefit in the quarter in which the change occurs. Included in the income tax benefit for the three months ended September 30, 2021 is a benefit of $0.6 million due to a higher estimated annual effective tax rate from that applied to the second quarter’s year to date ordinary loss from continuing operations. The higher estimated annual effective tax rate was primarily due to the reduced impact of forecasted nondeductible stock-based compensation expense had on the increase in forecasted ordinary pre-tax losses.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recorded an income tax benefit of $4.8 million and $23.2 million, which represents an effective income tax rate of 22% and 34%, respectively. For the three months ended September 30, 2021, the effective income tax rate is higher than the statutory rate of 21% due primarily to benefits related to a change in the annual expected effective income tax rate, partially offset by foreign income taxed at different tax rates. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the effective income tax rate is higher than the statutory rate of 21% due primarily to excess tax benefits generated by the exercise and vesting for stock-based awards, partially offset by foreign income taxed at different tax rates. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded an income tax benefit of $11.7 million due primarily to excess tax benefits generated by the exercise and vesting of stock-based awards. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded an income tax benefit of $17.6 million due primarily excess tax benefits generated by the exercise and vesting of stock-based awards and a reduction to deferred taxes due to the true-up of the state tax rate for an indefinite-lived intangible asset.

The Company recognizes interest and, if applicable, penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in the income tax provision. There are currently no accruals for interest and penalties.

The Company is routinely under audit by federal, state, local and foreign authorities in the area of income tax as a result of previously filed separate company and consolidated tax returns with IAC. These audits include questioning the timing and the amount of income and deductions and the allocation of income and deductions among various tax jurisdictions. The Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) has substantially completed its audit of IAC’s federal income tax returns for the years ended December 31, 2013 through 2017, and has begun its audit of the years December 31, 2018 through 2019, which includes the operations of the Company. The statutes of limitations for the years 2013 through 2017 have been extended to June 30, 2022. Returns filed in various other jurisdictions are open to examination for various tax years beginning with 2009. Income taxes

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)
(Unaudited)
payable include unrecognized tax benefits considered sufficient to pay assessments that may result from examination of prior year tax returns. The Company considers many factors when evaluating and estimating its tax positions and tax benefits, which may not accurately anticipate actual outcomes and, therefore, may require periodic adjustment. Although management currently believes changes in unrecognized tax benefits from period to period and differences between amounts paid, if any, upon resolution of issues raised in audits and amounts previously provided will not have a material impact on liquidity, results of operations, or financial condition of the Company, these matters are subject to inherent uncertainties and management’s view of these matters may change in the future.

At September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company has unrecognized tax benefits of $5.8 million and $5.3 million, respectively; all of which are for tax positions included in IAC’s consolidated tax return filings. If unrecognized tax benefits at September 30, 2021 are subsequently recognized, the income tax provision would be reduced by $5.6 million. The comparable amount as of December 31, 2020 is $5.1 million.

The Company regularly assesses the realizability of deferred tax assets considering all available evidence including, to the extent applicable, the nature, frequency and severity of prior cumulative losses, forecasts of future taxable income, tax filing status, the duration of statutory carryforward periods, available tax planning and historical experience. As of September 30, 2021, the Company has a U.S. gross deferred tax asset of $203.6 million that the Company expects to fully utilize on a more likely than not basis. Of this amount, $54.4 million will be utilized upon the future reversal of deferred tax liabilities and the remaining net deferred tax asset of $149.2 million will be utilized based on forecasts of future taxable income. The Company’s most significant net deferred tax asset relates to U.S. federal net operating loss (“NOL”) carryforwards of $89.5 million. The Company expects to generate sufficient future taxable income of at least $426.2 million prior to the expiration of these NOLs, the majority of which expire between 2030 and 2037, and a portion of which never expire, to fully realize this deferred tax asset.

NOTE 3—FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
Marketable Debt Securities
The Company did not hold any available-for-sale marketable debt securities at September 30, 2021.

The contractual maturities of debt securities classified as current available-for-sale at December 31, 2020 were within one year.

Fair Value Measurements
The Company categorizes its financial instruments measured at fair value into a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used in pricing the asset or liability. The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are:

Level 1: Observable inputs obtained from independent sources, such as quoted market prices for identical assets and liabilities in active markets.

Level 2: Other inputs, which are observable directly or indirectly, such as quoted market prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted market prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data. The fair values of the Company’s Level 2 financial assets are primarily obtained from observable market prices for identical underlying securities that may not be actively

traded. Certain of these securities may have different market prices from multiple market data sources, in which case an average market price is used.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data and require the Company to develop its own assumptions, based on the best information available in the circumstances, about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the assets or liabilities.

The following tables present the Company’s financial instruments that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis:

Assets measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis
The Company’s non-financial assets, such as goodwill, intangible assets, ROU assets, capitalized software, leasehold improvements and equipment are adjusted to fair value only when an impairment is recognized. Such fair value measurements are based predominantly on Level 3 inputs.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recorded $9.6 million in impairment charges on ROU assets, leasehold improvements, and furniture and equipment as a result of the Company reducing its real estate footprint. Impairment expense was determined by comparing the carrying value of each asset group related to each office space vacated to the estimated fair market value of cash inflows directly associated with each office space. Based on this analysis, if the carrying amount of the asset group is greater than the estimated future undiscounted cash flows, an impairment charge is recognized, measured as the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the asset.

Shares issuable upon exercise or vesting of market-based awards and PSUs are included in the denominator for earnings per share if (i) the applicable market or performance condition(s) has been met and (ii) the inclusion of the market-based awards and PSUs is dilutive for the respective reporting periods. For both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, 1.2 million shares underlying market-based awards and PSUs were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share because the market or performance condition(s) had not been met.

(f)    The Company’s primary financial measure is Adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as operating (loss) income excluding: (1) stock-based compensation expense; (2) depreciation; and (3) acquisition-related items consisting of amortization of intangible assets and impairments of goodwill and intangible assets, if applicable. The Company believes this measure is useful for analysts and investors as this measure allows a more meaningful comparison between the Company’s performance and that of its competitors. Adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations because it excludes the impact of these expenses.

NOTE 9—CONTINGENCIES
In the ordinary course of business, the Company is a party to various lawsuits. The Company establishes reserves for specific legal matters when it determines that the likelihood of an unfavorable outcome is probable and the loss is reasonably estimable. Management has not identified any material legal matters where we believe an unfavorable outcome is probable and estimable; therefore, no reserve is established. Although management currently believes that resolving claims against us, including claims where an unfavorable outcome is reasonably possible, will not have a material impact on the liquidity, results of operations, or financial condition of the Company, these matters are subject to inherent uncertainties and management’s view of these matters may change in the future. The Company also evaluates other contingent matters, including income and non-income tax contingencies, to assess the likelihood of an unfavorable outcome and estimated extent of potential loss. It is possible that an unfavorable outcome of one or more of these lawsuits or other contingencies could have a material impact on the liquidity, results of operations, or financial condition of the Company. See “Note 2—Income Taxes” for additional information related to income tax contingencies.

Additionally, the Company subleases office space to IAC and charged IAC $0.4 million and $1.2 million, and $0.5 million and $1.4 million of rent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. IAC subleases office space to the Company and charged the Company $0.3 million of rent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Item 2.    Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
GENERAL
Management Overview
Angi Inc., formerly ANGI Homeservices, Inc., (“Angi Inc.,” the “Company,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) connects quality home service professionals with consumers across 400 different categories, from repairing and remodeling homes to cleaning and landscaping. Over 260,000 domestic service professionals actively sought consumer matches, completed jobs, or advertised work through Angi Inc. platforms during the three months ended September 30, 2021. Additionally, consumers turned to at least one of our brands to find a professional for approximately 33 million projects during the twelve months ended September 30, 2021.
The Company has two operating segments: (i) North America (United States and Canada), which includes Angi Ads and Leads and Angi Services; and (ii) Europe. The brands operate as follows: Angi Ads operates under the Angi (formerly Angie’s List) brand, Angi Leads operates primarily under the HomeAdvisor, powered by Angi brand, and Angi Services operates primarily under the Handy brand.
For a more detailed description of the Company’s operating businesses, see the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Defined Terms and Operating Metrics:

Unless otherwise indicated or as the context otherwise requires, certain terms, which include the principal operating metrics we use in managing our business, used in this quarterly report are defined below:
Angi Ads and Leads Revenue primarily reflects domestic ads and leads revenue, including consumer connection revenue for consumer matches, revenue from service professionals under contract for advertising and membership subscription revenue from service professionals and consumers.

Angi Services Revenue primarily reflects domestic revenue from pre-priced offerings by which the consumer purchases services directly from the Company and the Company engages a service professional to perform the service and includes revenue from Total Home Roofing, Inc. (“Angi Roofing”), which was acquired on July 1, 2021.

Angi Service Requests (“Service Requests”) are fully completed and submitted domestic customer service requests and includes Angi Services requests in the period.
Angi Monetized Transactions are fully completed and submitted domestic customer service requests that were matched to and paid for by a service professional and includes completed and in-process Angi Services jobs in the period.
Angi Transacting Service Professionals (“Transacting SPs”) are the number of service professionals that paid for consumer matches through Angi Leads or performed an Angi Services job in the quarter.
Angi Advertising Service Professionals (“Advertising SPs”) are the number of service professionals under contract for advertising at the end of the period.
Senior Notes - On August 20, 2020, ANGI Group, LLC (“ANGI Group”), a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, issued $500.0 million of its 3.875% Senior Notes due August 15, 2028, with interest payable February 15 and August 15 of each year, commencing February 15, 2021.

Components of Results of Operations
Sources of Revenue
Angi Ads and Leads Revenue is primarily derived from (i) consumer connection revenue, which is comprised of fees paid by service professionals for consumer matches (regardless of whether the service professional ultimately provides the requested service), (ii) advertising revenue, which includes revenue from service professionals under contract for advertising, and (iii) membership subscription revenue from service professionals and consumers. Consumer connection revenue varies based upon
25

several factors, including the service requested, product experience offered, and geographic location of service. Angi Services is comprised of revenue from jobs (i) sourced through the “Book Now” feature which lets consumers consummate the entire transaction digitally for work that’s completed physically, (ii) under managed projects (including Angi Roofing) which are home improvement projects, and (iii) through retail partnerships for delivery and installation of furniture or other items.
Operating Costs and Expenses:
Cost of revenue - consists primarily of payments made to independent service professionals who perform work contracted under Angi Services arrangements, credit card processing fees, hosting fees, and roofing materials costs associated with Angi Roofing.
Selling and marketing expense - consists primarily of advertising expenditures, which include online marketing, including fees paid to search engines; offline marketing, which is primarily television advertising; and partner-related payments to those who direct traffic to our brands; compensation expense (including stock-based compensation expense) and other employee-related costs for our sales force and marketing personnel; and facilities costs.
General and administrative expense - consists primarily of compensation expense (including stock-based compensation expense) and other employee-related costs for personnel engaged in executive management, finance, legal, tax, human resources and customer service functions, fees for professional services (including transaction-related costs related to acquisitions), provision for credit losses, software license and maintenance costs, and facilities costs. Our customer service function includes personnel who provide support to our service professionals and consumers.
Product development expense - consists primarily of compensation expense (including stock-based compensation expense) and other employee-related costs that are not capitalized for personnel engaged in the design, development, testing and enhancement of product offerings and related technology, software license and maintenance costs, and facilities costs.
Non-GAAP financial measure
Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”) is a non-GAAP financial measure. See “Principles of Financial Reporting” for the definition of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of net (loss) earnings attributable to Angi Inc. shareholders to operating loss to consolidated Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.
Brand Integration Initiative
On March 17, 2021, the Company updated one of its leading websites and brands, Angie’s List, to Angi, and concentrated its marketing investment in the Angi brand in order to focus its marketing, sales, and branding efforts on a single brand.
We rely heavily on free, or organic, search results from search engine optimization, and paid search engine marketing to drive traffic to our websites. Our brand integration initiative has adversely affected the placement and ranking of Angi Inc. websites, particularly Angi.com, in organic search results as Angi does not have the same domain history as Angie’s List. In addition, we shifted marketing to support Angi, away from HomeAdvisor, which has negatively affected the efficiency of our search engine marketing efforts.
Since the beginning of the integration process, these efforts had a pronounced negative impact on service requests from organic search results and via our mobile applications, which in turn has resulted in increased paid search engine marketing to generate service requests. The combined effect of this during the three months ended September 30, 2021, has reduced revenue and increased marketing spend, materially more than expected at the launch of the brand initiative in the first quarter of 2021 and more significantly than our forecasts at the beginning of May 2021. We expect the pronounced negative impact to organic search results, the increased paid search engine marketing costs and the reduced monetization from our mobile applications to continue until such time as the new brand establishes search engine optimization ranking and consumer awareness is established.
26

Angi Services Investment

Angi Services was launched in August 2019 and we have invested significantly in Angi Services and expect to continue to do so going forward. In the fourth quarter of 2021, we expect significant revenue growth as we expand the business, refine the overall experience, and increase penetration in certain geographies. This increased investment in Angi Services has contributed to lower profitability for the Company for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and is expected to continue to negatively impact profits through the remainder of 2021.
COVID-19 Update

The impact on the Company from the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures designed to contain its spread has been varied and volatile.
As previously disclosed, the initial impact of COVID-19 on the Company resulted in a decline in demand for service requests, driven primarily by decreases in demand in certain categories of jobs (particularly discretionary indoor projects). While we experienced a rebound in service requests in the second half of 2020 and through early 2021, service requests did start to decline in May 2021 compared to the comparable months of 2020 as a result of the surge in 2020 and due to impacts of the “Brand Integration Initiative” discussed above. Moreover, many service professionals’ businesses had been adversely impacted by labor and material constraints and many service professionals had limited capacity to take on new business, which negatively impacted our ability to monetize the increased level of service requests through the first quarter of 2021. Although our ability to monetize service requests rebounded modestly in the second and third quarters of 2021, we still have not returned to levels we experienced pre-COVID-19. No assurances can be provided that we will continue to be able to improve monetization, or that service professionals’ businesses will not be adversely impacted in the future.
The extent to which developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic and measures designed to curb its spread continue to impact the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations will depend on future developments, all of which are highly uncertain and many of which are beyond the Company’s control, including the continuing spread of COVID-19, the severity of resurgences of COVID-19 caused by variant strains of the virus, the effectiveness of vaccines and attitudes toward receiving them, materials and supply chain constraints, labor shortages, the scope of governmental and other restrictions on travel, discretionary services and other activity, and public reactions to these developments.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020
North America revenue increased $71.3 million, or 19%, driven by growth of $72.2 million, or 160%, in Angi Services revenue, while Angi Ads and Leads remained relatively flat. Approximately half of the Angi Services revenue growth is due to organic growth and approximately half of the revenue growth is due to Angi Roofing, acquired July 1, 2021. Angi Ads and Leads revenue had relatively flat growth, despite the decline in Service Requests during the quarter of 11%, which impacted consumer connection revenue and was primarily attributable to the brand integration initiative described above under “Brand Integration Initiative.”
Europe revenue increased $0.3 million, or 2%, due to the favorable impact of the weakening of the U.S dollar relative to the Euro and the British Pound.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020
North America revenue increased $150.7 million, or 14%, driven by increases in Angi Services revenue of $134.6 million, or 122%, and Angi Ads and Leads revenue of $16.1 million, or 2%. The increase in Angi Services revenue is due primarily to organic growth and to a lesser extent from Angi Roofing, acquired July 1, 2021. The increase in Angi Ads and Leads revenue is due primarily to an increase in Advertising revenue of $20.6 million, or 12%.

28

Europe revenue increased $10.2 million, or 19%, due to strong growth across its markets due to increased consumer demand and the favorable impact of the weakening of the U.S dollar relative to the Euro and the British Pound.

The remaining increase is for payments to third-party professional service providers for other Angi Services arrangements.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020

For the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020

North America selling and marketing expense increased $29.5 million, or 15%, driven by increases in advertising expense of $11.6 million, compensation expense of $9.6 million, expense of $7.2 million from inclusion of Angi Roofing and an increase in consulting costs of $3.2 million. The increase in advertising expense was due primarily to an increase in television spend of $11.6 million. The increase in television spend in 2021 reflects the return to historical spending levels as compared to the cost cutting initiatives during the third quarter of 2020 due to the impact of COVID-19 as well as continued efforts related to the brand integration initiative described above under “Brand Integration Initiative.” The increase in compensation expense was due primarily to increased commission expense, in addition to an increase in sales force headcount. The increase in consulting costs was due primarily to various sales initiatives at Angi Services.

Europe selling and marketing expense decreased $1.9 million, or 23%, driven by a decrease in compensation expense of $2.1 million primarily due to severance costs recorded in the third quarter of 2020 associated with headcount reductions in France.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020
North America selling and marketing expense increased $93.9 million, or 17%, driven by increases in advertising expense of $46.6 million, compensation expense of $32.9 million, outsourced personnel and consulting costs of $10.4 million, and $7.2 million in expense from the inclusion of Angi Roofing. The increase in advertising expense was due primarily to increases of $42.7 million in online marketing spend and $3.7 million in television spend. The increase in online marketing spend was attributable to the brand integration initiative described above under “Brand Integration Initiative.” The increases in television spend, compensation expense, and outsourced personnel and consulting costs were due primarily to the factors described above in the three-month discussion.
29

Europe selling and marketing expense decreased $1.4 million, or 5%, driven by a decrease in compensation expense of $3.2 million, partially offset by an increase in advertising expense of $2.0 million. The decrease in compensation expense was primarily due to severance costs recorded in the third quarter of 2020 associated with headcount reductions in France and lower headcount in 2021. The increase in advertising expense was due, in part, to decreased advertising expense in 2020 to mitigate the negative impact of COVID-19 on revenue.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020
North America general and administrative expense increased $15.4 million, or 19%, due primarily to an increase of $7.5 million in professional fees, $6.0 million of expense from the inclusion of Angi Roofing, increases of $2.2 million in software license and maintenance expense and $1.7 million in the provision for credit losses, partially offset by a $4.0 million decrease in compensation expense. The increase in professional fees is due primarily to an increase in outsourced personnel costs, and to a lesser extent, legal fees, consulting costs, and recruiting fees. The increase in outsourced personnel costs is due primarily to an increase in call volume related to our customer service function. The increase in software license and maintenance expense is due primarily to increased investment in software to support our customer service function. The increase in the provision for credit losses is primarily due to higher Angi Services revenue as the provision for credit losses as a percentage of revenue has remained relatively flat. The decrease in compensation expense was due primarily to a decrease in stock-based compensation expense.

Europe general and administrative expense decreased $2.5 million, or 29%, driven by a decrease in compensation expense of $2.6 million primarily due to severance costs recorded in the third quarter of 2020 associated with headcount reductions in France.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020
North America general and administrative expense increased $22.3 million, or 9%, due primarily to an increase of $18.9 million in professional fees, $9.6 million in one-time costs related to the Company reducing its real estate footprint, $6.0 million of expense from the inclusion of Angi Roofing, increases of $4.9 million in the provision for credit losses, and $4.4 million in software license and maintenance costs, partially offset by a decrease of $26.0 million in compensation expense. The increase in professional fees, provision for credit losses, and software license and maintenance costs were due primarily to the factors described above in the three-month discussion above. The real estate related costs are the result of impairments of right-of-use lease assets, leasehold improvements and furniture and equipment associated with office space we are vacating. The decrease in compensation expense was due primarily to a decrease of stock-based compensation expense of $34.6 million, partially offset by an increase of $8.0 million in wage related expenses resulting primarily from annual wage increases and certain department’s headcount now being aligned to general and administrative functions under the brand integration initiative, attributing to $2.8 million of the increase. The decrease in stock-based compensation expense was due primarily to $22.4 million in stock appreciation rights expense recognized during the nine months ended September 30, 2020, which was not incurred in 2021 as the awards became fully vested in 2020, and a net decrease of $7.7 million due to the reversal of previously recognized expense related to unvested awards that were forfeited due to management departures in the first quarter of 2021, partially offset by the issuance of new equity awards since 2020.

Europe general and administrative expense increased $6.3 million, or 29%, due primarily to a charge of $6.0 million related to the acquisition of an additional 21% interest in our MyBuilder business at a premium to fair value and a $1.9 million increase in professional fees related to corporate restructuring, partially offset by a $3.9 million decrease in compensation expense driven by severance costs recorded in the third quarter of 2020 associated with headcount reductions in France.

North America product development expense decreased $1.3 million, or 9%, due primarily to decreases in compensation expense of $1.3 million, partially offset by an increase in software license and maintenance expense of $0.3 million. The decrease in compensation expense is due to certain departments’ headcount that were previously included within product development now being aligned to general and administrative functions under the brand integration initiative. This change resulted in a $2.4 million decrease in compensation expense. Excluding this change, compensation expense would have increased by $1.1 million driven by higher salary expense.
Europe product and development expense increased $1.4 million, or 53%, due to an increase in compensation expense of $1.3 million as a result of fewer projects being capitalized.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020
North America operating income decreased $15.0 million to a loss of $14.7 million due to a decrease in Adjusted EBITDA of $29.2 million, described below, and an increase of $0.6 million in depreciation, partially offset by decreases of $8.9 million in amortization of intangibles and $5.9 million in stock-based compensation expense. The increase in depreciation was due primarily to the investments in capitalized software to support our products and services. The decrease in the amortization of intangibles was due primarily to certain intangible assets becoming fully amortized during 2020. The decrease in stock-based compensation expense was due primarily to $6.8 million for stock appreciation rights and options expense recognized in the third quarter of 2020 which were not incurred in 2021 as the awards became fully vested.

Europe operating loss increased $3.1 million to a loss of $0.3 million due primarily to an increase in Adjusted EBITDA loss of $3.1 million, described below, partially offset by a decrease of $0.1 million in amortization of intangibles.

At September 30, 2021, there is $135.5 million of unrecognized compensation cost, net of estimated forfeitures, related to all equity-based awards, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately 3.2 years.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020
North America operating income decreased $45.6 million to a loss of $37.3 million due to a decrease in Adjusted EBITDA of $99.8 million, described below, and an increase of $6.1 million in depreciation, partially offset by decreases of $34.3 million in stock-based compensation expense and $26.0 million in amortization of intangibles. The increase in depreciation and the decreases in stock-based compensation and amortization of intangibles were driven by the factors described above in the three-month discussion.

Europe operating loss increased $0.3 million, or 3%, due primarily to an increase in Adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.1 million, described below, and an increase of $1.0 million in depreciation expense, partially offset by decreases of $0.4 million in stock-based compensation expense and $0.3 million in amortization of intangibles.

North America Adjusted EBITDA decreased $29.2 million, or 72%, to $11.2 million, and decreased as a percentage of revenue, despite higher revenue of $71.3 million, due primarily to an increase in selling and marketing expense of $29.5 million as well as growth of Angi Services due to factors described above in the cost of revenue and selling and marketing three-month discussions.
Europe Adjusted EBITDA increased $3.1 million, as higher revenue of $0.3 million was more than offset by the increases in general and administrative expense of $2.4 million (excluding stock-based compensation expense), selling and marketing expense of $1.9 million, and product development expense of $1.4 million; each of which are described above.

million as well as growth of Angi Services due to factors described above in the cost of revenue and selling and marketing nine-month discussions.

Europe Adjusted EBITDA loss decreased $0.1 million, or 2%, due primarily to an increase of $10.2 million in revenue, mostly offset by the increase in general and administrative expense of $6.7 million (excluding stock-based compensation expense), which included a charge of $6.0 million related to the acquisition of an additional 21% interest in MyBuilder at a premium to fair value, and the increase in product development expense of $4.8 million.

Interest expense

Interest expense relates to interest on the ANGI Group Senior Notes, ANGI Group Term Loan, and commitment fees on the ANGI Group Revolving Facility. As of May 6, 2021, the outstanding balance of the ANGI Group Term Loan was repaid in its entirety. The ANGI Group Revolving Facility was terminated effective August 3, 2021. No amounts were ever drawn under the ANGI Group Revolving Facility prior to its termination.

In 2021, the effective income tax rate was higher than the statutory rate of 21%, due primarily to the benefit from the change in the annual expected effective income tax rate driven by the reduced impact of forecasted nondeductible stock-based compensation expense had on the increase in forecasted ordinary pre-tax losses, partially offset by foreign income taxed at different tax rates.
In 2020, the income tax benefit was due primarily to excess tax benefits generated by the exercise and vesting of stock-based awards.

In 2020, the Company recorded an income tax benefit of $17.6 million. The income tax benefit was due primarily to excess tax benefits generated by the exercise and vesting of stock-based awards and a reduction to deferred taxes due to the true-up of the state tax rate of an indefinite-lived intangible asset.

PRINCIPLES OF FINANCIAL REPORTING
We report Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). This measure is one of 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. This non-GAAP measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. We endeavor to compensate for the limitations of the non-GAAP measure presented by providing the comparable GAAP measure with equal or greater prominence and descriptions of the reconciling items, including quantifying such items, to derive the non-GAAP measure. We encourage investors to examine the reconciling adjustments between the GAAP and non-GAAP measure, which we discuss below.
Definition of Non-GAAP Measure
Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”) is defined as operating income (loss) excluding: (1) stock-based compensation expense; (2) depreciation; and (3) acquisition-related items consisting of amortization of intangible assets and impairments of goodwill and intangible assets, if applicable. 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. Adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations because it excludes the impact of these expenses.
The following table reconciles net (loss) earnings attributable to Angi Inc. shareholders to operating loss to consolidated Adjusted EBITDA:

For a reconciliation of operating loss to Adjusted EBITDA for the Company’s reportable segments, see “Note 7—Segment Information” to the consolidated financial statements included in “Item 1. Consolidated Financial Statements.”
Non-Cash Expenses That Are Excluded from Our Non-GAAP Measure
Stock-based compensation expense consists of expense associated with the grants, including unvested grants assumed in acquisitions, of stock appreciation rights, restricted stock units (“RSUs”), stock options, performance-based RSUs (“PSUs”) and market-based awards. These expenses are not paid in cash and we view the economic costs 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. PSUs and market-based awards are included only to the extent the applicable performance or market condition(s) have been met (assuming the end of the reporting period is the end of the contingency period). The Company is currently settling all stock-based awards on a net basis and remits the required tax-withholding amounts from its current funds.
Depreciation is a non-cash expense relating to our 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.
35

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 service professional relationships, technology, memberships, customer lists and user base, and trade names, 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 impairments of intangible assets or goodwill, if applicable, are not ongoing costs of doing business.

Operating activities$25,888 $173,185 
Investing activities$(26,663)$(86,894)
Financing activities$(335,046)$378,450 
Net cash provided by operating activities consists of earnings adjusted for non-cash items and the effect of changes in working capital. Non-cash adjustments include stock-based compensation expense, provision for credit losses, amortization of intangibles, depreciation, impairment of long-lived and right-of-use assets, non-cash lease expense, and deferred income taxes.
2021
Adjustments to earnings consist primarily of $66.1 million of provision for credit losses, $45.7 million of depreciation, $20.4 million of stock-based compensation expense, $12.6 million of amortization of intangibles, $12.3 million of impairment charges on long-lived and right-of-use assets, $9.6 million of non-cash lease expense, and $6.4 million of revenue reserves, partially offset by $25.4 million of deferred income taxes. The decrease from changes in working capital consists primarily of an increase of $106.2 million in accounts receivable partially offset by increases of $23.3 million in accounts payable and other liabilities and $4.6 million of deferred revenue. The increase in accounts receivable is due primarily to revenue growth, primarily attributable to Angi Services. The increase in accounts payable and other liabilities is due primarily to increases in accrued advertising and related payables and accrued roofing material costs related to Angi Roofing, partially offset by the reduction in lease liabilities. The increase in deferred revenue is primarily driven by increases in annual membership payments and an increase in customer deposits for Angi Services jobs.
37

Net cash used in investing activities includes $52.1 million of capital expenditures, primarily related to investments in capitalized software to support the Company’s products and services, $25.4 million of cash principally related to the acquisition of Angi Roofing, partially offset by proceeds of $50.0 million from the maturities of marketable debt securities.
Net cash used in financing activities includes $220.0 million for the prepayment of the ANGI Group Term Loan, which otherwise would have matured on November 5, 2023, $56.1 million for the payment of withholding taxes on behalf of employees for stock-based awards that were net settled, $35.4 million for the repurchase of 3.2 million shares of Angi Inc. Class A common stock, on a settlement date basis, at an average price of $11.06 per share, and $23.5 million for the purchase of redeemable noncontrolling interests.
2020
Adjustments to earnings consist primarily of $60.1 million of provision for credit losses, $55.0 million of stock-based compensation expense, $38.8 million of amortization of intangibles, and $38.6 million of depreciation, and $10.2 million of non-cash lease expense, partially offset by $18.1 million of deferred income taxes. The decrease from changes in working capital consists primarily of an increase in accounts receivable of $70.7 million, partially offset by an increase in accounts payable and other liabilities of $46.9 million. The increase in accounts receivable is due primarily to revenue growth. The increase in accounts payable and other liabilities is due primarily to an increase in accrued advertising and related payables, and accrued compensation costs due, in part, to the deferral of payroll tax payments under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, partially offset by the reduction in lease liabilities..
Net cash used in investing activities includes purchases of marketable debt securities of $50.0 million and capital expenditures of $37.6 million, primarily related to investments in capitalized software to support the Company's products and services, and leasehold improvements.
Net cash provided by financing activities includes $500.0 million of proceeds from the issuance of the Senior Notes and a $3.1 million payment from IAC/InterActiveCorp (“IAC”) pursuant to the tax sharing agreement, partially offset by $54.4 million for the repurchase of 7.7 million shares of Class A common stock, on a settlement date basis, at an average price of $7.02 per share, $50.0 million for the payment of withholding taxes on behalf of employees for stock-based awards that were net settled, $10.3 million in principal payments on the Term Loan, $5.6 million for debt issuance costs, and $4.3 million for the purchase of redeemable noncontrolling interests.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Financing Arrangements
The ANGI Group Senior Notes were issued on August 20, 2020, the proceeds of which have been used for general corporate purposes, including the acquisition of Angi Roofing, and treasury share purchases.

As of May 6, 2021, the outstanding balance of the ANGI Group Term Loan was repaid in its entirety. The outstanding balance of the ANGI Group Term Loan at December 31, 2020 was $220.0 million and bore interest at 2.16%.

The $250.0 million ANGI Group Revolving Facility, which otherwise would have expired on November 5, 2023, was terminated effective August 3, 2021. No amounts were ever drawn under the ANGI Group Revolving Facility prior to its termination.

Share Repurchase Authorizations and Activity
During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company repurchased 3.2 million shares, on a trade date basis, of its common stock at an average price of $11.06 per share, or $35.4 million in aggregate. Angi Inc. has 16.1 million shares remaining in its share repurchase authorization as of September 30, 2021. The Company may purchase shares over an indefinite period of time on the open market and in privately negotiated transactions, depending on those factors Angi Inc. management deems relevant at any particular time, including, without limitation, market conditions, share price and future outlook.

Outstanding Stock-based Awards
The Company may settle equity awards on a gross or a net basis upon factors deemed relevant at the time, and if settled on a net basis, with Angi remits withholding taxes on behalf of the employee. At IAC’s option, certain Angi stock appreciation
38

rights can be settled in either Class A shares of Angi or shares of IAC common stock. If settled in IAC common stock, the Company reimburses IAC in either cash or through the issuance of Class A shares to IAC. The Company currently settles all equity awards on a net basis.
Pursuant to the employee matters agreement, in the event of a distribution of Angi capital stock to IAC stockholders in a transaction intended to qualify as tax-free for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the Compensation Committee of the IAC Board of Directors has the exclusive authority to determine the treatment of outstanding IAC equity awards. Such authority includes (but is not limited to) the ability to convert all or part of IAC equity awards outstanding immediately prior to the distribution into equity awards denominated in shares of Angi Class A Common Stock for no compensation, which Angi would be obligated to assume and which would be dilutive to Angi’s stockholders.
The following table summarizes the aggregate intrinsic value of all awards outstanding as of October 29, 2021; assuming these awards were net settled on that date, the withholding taxes that would be paid by the Company on behalf of employees upon exercise or vesting that would be payable (assuming these equity awards are net settled with a 50% tax rate), and the shares that would have been issued are as follows:

(a)Includes stock options, RSUs, and subsidiary denominated equity.
(b)The number of shares ultimately needed to settle subsidiary denominated equity awards and the cash withholding tax obligation may vary significantly as a result of the determination of the fair value of the relevant award at the time of exercise. In addition, the number of shares required to settle these awards will be impacted by movement in the Company’s stock price.

Capital Expenditures
The Company’s 2021 capital expenditures are expected to be higher than 2020 capital expenditures of $52.5 million by approximately 25% to 30%, due primarily to increased investment in capitalized software to support the development of our products and services.
Liquidity Assessment
The Company’s liquidity could be negatively affected by a decrease in demand for its products and services due to COVID-19 or other factors. As described in the “COVID-19 Update” section above, to date, the COVID-19 outbreak and measures designed to curb its spread have adversely impacted the Company’s business.

At September 30, 2021, IAC held all Class B shares of Angi Inc., which represent 84.6% of the economic interest and 98.2% of the voting interest of the Company. As a result, IAC has the ability to control Angi Inc.’s financing activities, including the issuance of additional debt and equity securities by Angi Inc. or any of its subsidiaries, or the incurrence of other indebtedness generally. While Angi Inc. is expected to have the ability to access debt and equity markets if needed, such transactions may require the approval of IAC due to its control of the majority of the outstanding voting power of Angi Inc.’s capital stock and its representation on the Angi Inc. board of directors. Additional financing may not be available on terms favorable to the Company or at all. In addition, the Company’s existing indebtedness could limit its ability to obtain additional financing.
The Company believes its existing cash, cash equivalents, and expected positive cash flows generated from operations will be sufficient to fund its normal operating requirements, including capital expenditures, debt service, the payment of withholding taxes paid on behalf of employees for net-settled stock-based awards, and investing and other commitments, for the foreseeable future.

CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS
During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, other than the repayment of the outstanding balance of the ANGI Group Term Loan of $220.0 million, there have been no material changes to the Company’s contractual obligations since the disclosure in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Item 3.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, there have been no material changes to the Company’s instruments or positions that are sensitive to market risk since the disclosure in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, other than the repayment of the outstanding balance of the ANGI Group term loan of $220.0 million, which bore interest at a variable rate, reducing the Company’s exposure risk related to changes in interest rates.

41

Item 4.    Controls and Procedures
The Company monitors and evaluates on an ongoing basis its disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting in order to improve their overall effectiveness. In the course of these evaluations, the Company modifies and refines its internal processes as conditions warrant.
As required by Rule 13a-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Company’s management, including our principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as defined by Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, management has concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this report in providing reasonable assurance that information we are required to disclose in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and forms, and include controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
There were no changes to the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II
OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings
Overview

In the ordinary course of business, the Company and its subsidiaries are (or may become) parties to litigation involving property, personal injury, contract, intellectual property and other claims, as well as stockholder derivative actions, class action lawsuits and other matters. The amounts that may be recovered in such matters may be subject to insurance coverage. Although the results of legal proceedings and claims cannot be predicted with certainty, neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries is currently a party to any legal proceedings, the outcome of which, we believe, if determined adversely to us, would individually or in the aggregate have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

Rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission require the description of material pending legal proceedings (other than ordinary, routine litigation incident to the registrant’s business) and advise that proceedings ordinarily need not be described if they primarily involve damages claims for amounts (exclusive of interest and costs) not exceeding 10% of the current assets of the registrant and its subsidiaries on a consolidated basis. In the judgment of Company management, none of the pending litigation matters which we are defending, including the one described below, involves or is likely to involve amounts of that magnitude. The litigation matter and the investigation described below involves issues or claims that may be of particular interest to our stockholders, regardless of whether this matter may be material to our financial position or operations based upon the standard set forth in the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

FTC Investigation of Certain HomeAdvisor Business Practices

On April 19, 2021, the staff of the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) informed HomeAdvisor that upon investigation it believes that certain of HomeAdvisor’s business practices relating to leads provided to service professionals and its mHelpDesk product are unfair or deceptive in violation of the FTC Act. The staff proposed to resolve its potential claims via a consent judgment mandating certain business practice changes (and an unspecified payment amount) and invited the company to engage in settlement discussions to resolve the matter. While HomeAdvisor believes that any such claims would be without merit and is prepared to defend vigorously against any enforcement proceeding, it is continuing a dialogue with the FTC to discuss the matter and cannot currently predict the outcome of this investigation and related discussions.

Service Professional Class Action Litigation against HomeAdvisor

This purported class action pending in Colorado is described in detail on page 27 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020. See Airquip, Inc. et al. v. HomeAdvisor, Inc. et al., No. l:16-cv-1849 and Costello et al. v. HomeAdvisor, Inc. et al., No. 1:18-cv-1802, both filed in U.S. District Court in Colorado and consolidated under the caption In re HomeAdvisor, Inc. Litigation. This lawsuit alleges that our HomeAdvisor business engages in certain deceptive practices affecting the service professionals who join its network, including charging them for substandard customer leads or failing to disclose certain charges. There have been no material or otherwise noteworthy developments in this case since the filing of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020. The Company believes that the allegations in this lawsuit are without merit and will continue to defend vigorously against them.

Item 1A.    Risk Factors
This quarterly report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The use of words such as “anticipates,” “estimates,” “expects,” “plans” and “believes,” among others, generally identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, among others, statements relating to the Company’s future financial performance, business prospects and strategy, anticipated trends and prospects in home services industry and other similar matters. These forward-looking statements are based on Company management's current expectations and assumptions about future events, which are inherently subject to uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict.
Actual results could differ materially from those contained in these forward-looking statements for a variety of reasons, including, among others: (i) the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on our businesses, (ii) our ability to compete, (iii) the failure or delay of the home services market to migrate online, (iv) adverse economic events or trends (particularly those that adversely
43

impact consumer confidence and spending behavior), (v) our ability to establish and maintain relationships with quality service professionals, (vi) our ability to build, maintain and/or enhance our various brands, (vii) our ability to market our various products and services in a successful and cost-effective manner, (viii) the continued display of links to websites offering our products and services in a prominent manner in search results, (ix) our continued ability to communicate with consumers and service professionals via e-mail (or other sufficient means), (x) our ability to access, share and use personal data about consumers, (xi) our ability to develop and monetize versions of our products and services for mobile and other digital devices, (xii) any challenge to the contractor classification or employment status of our Handy service professionals, (xiii) our ability to protect our systems, technology and infrastructure from cyberattacks and to protect personal and confidential user information, (xiv) the occurrence of data security breaches, fraud and/or additional regulation involving or impacting credit card payments, (xv) the integrity, efficiency and scalability of our technology systems and infrastructures (and those of third parties with whom we do business), (xvi) operational and financial risks relating to acquisitions and the integration of suitable targets, (xvii) our ability to operate (and expand into) international markets successfully, (xviii) our ability to adequately protect our intellectual property rights and not infringe the intellectual property rights of third parties, (xix) changes in key personnel, (xx) various risks related to our relationship with IAC and (xxi) various risks related to our outstanding indebtedness.
Certain of these and other risks and uncertainties are discussed in our filings with the SEC, including in Part I-Item 1A-Risk Factors of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020. Other unknown or unpredictable factors that could also adversely affect our business, financial condition and operating results may arise from time to time. In light of these risks and uncertainties, the forward-looking statements discussed in this quarterly report may not prove to be accurate. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which only reflect the views of Company management as of the date of this quarterly report. We do not undertake to update these forward-looking statements.
Risk Factors
Recent changes in our executive management may not result in growth of our business or enhance stockholder value, and our management transition may not be successful.
During 2021, we announced the appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer, a new Chief Financial Officer, and a new Chief Marketing Officer. Our executive management team is critical to the overall management of the Company and also plays a key role in maintaining our culture and setting our strategic direction. In connection with these executive management changes, we have experienced, and may continue to experience, employee and management turnover in certain areas. These recent changes in our executive management may also cause or result in: disruption of our business and operations; difficulty recruiting, hiring, motivating and retaining talented and skilled personnel; further departures of other members of management; increased stock price volatility; and difficulty in establishing, maintaining or negotiating business or strategic relationships or transactions. Furthermore, these transitions could be a distraction to our executive management, business operations, service professionals and customers. If we do not succeed in attracting well-qualified employees, retaining and motivating existing employees or integrating new executives and employees, our business could be materially and adversely affected.

Our Angi brand integration initiative may involve substantial costs, including as a result of a continued negative impact on our organic search placement, and may not be favorably received by customers and service professionals.
On March 17, 2021, the Company updated one of its leading websites and brands, Angie’s List, to Angi, and concentrated its marketing investment in the Angi brand in order to focus its marketing, sales, and branding efforts on a single brand.
We have incurred and may continue to incur substantial costs as a result of our brand integration initiative and may not be able to achieve or maintain brand name recognition or status that is comparable to the recognition and status previously enjoyed by Angie’s List, and our customers and service professionals may be confused as we transition and focus on the Angi brand. Our Company relies heavily on free and paid search engine marketing efforts to drive traffic to our platforms. Our brand initiative has adversely affected the placement and ranking of Angi Inc. websites, particularly Angi.com, in organic search results as Angi does not have the same domain history as Angie’s List. In addition, we shifted marketing to support the Angi brand, away from the HomeAdvisor brand, which has negatively affected the efficiency of our search engine marketing efforts.

During the second and third quarters of 2021, these efforts had a pronounced negative impact on Service Requests from organic search results and via our mobile applications, which in turn has resulted in increased paid search engine marketing to generate Service Requests. The combined effect of this during the three months ended September 30, 2021, has reduced revenue and increased marketing spend, materially more than expected at the launch of the brand initiative in the first quarter of 2021 and more significantly than our forecasts at the beginning of May 2021. We expect the pronounced negative impact to organic search results, increased paid search engine marketing and reduced monetization from our mobile applications will continue until such time as the new brand establishes search engine optimization ranking and consumer awareness is more established. Any or all of these impacts could continue to increase our marketing costs (particularly to the extent free traffic is
44

replaced with paid traffic) and adversely affect the effectiveness of our marketing efforts overall. Finally, as we align and focus the organization around a single brand, we could experience financial and operational challenges and reduced service professional participation across our various product lines. Depending on market acceptance, our brand integration initiative could adversely affect our ability to attract and retain customers and service professionals, which could cause us not to realize some or all of the anticipated benefits contemplated by the brand integration initiative.

Item 2.    Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds
Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities
The employee matters agreement dated as of September 29, 2017, by and between us and IAC, provides, among other things, that we will reimburse IAC for the cost of certain equity awards held by our current and former employees and that IAC may elect to receive payment either in cash or shares of our capital stock.
Pursuant to the employee matters agreement, 2,985 shares of Class A common stock and 42,243 shares of Class B common stock were issued to IAC on September 30, 2021 as reimbursement for shares of IAC common stock issued in connection with the settlement of certain equity awards held by our employees during the three months ended September 30, 2021. This issuance did not involve any underwriters or public offerings and we believe that such issuance was exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) thereof.
