Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information  

 

This communication may contain "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: IAC’s future financial performance, business prospects and strategy, including the possibility of separating Vimeo, Inc. (“Vimeo”) from IAC, anticipated trends and prospects in the industries in which IAC’s businesses operate and other similar matters. Actual results could differ materially from those contained in these forward-looking statements for a variety of reasons, including, among others: (i) our ability to market our products and services in a successful and cost-effective manner, (ii) the display of links to websites offering our products and services in a prominent manner in search results, (iii) changes in our relationship with (or policies implemented by) Google, (iv) our continued ability to market, distribute and monetize our products and services through search engines, digital app stores and social media platforms, (v) the failure or delay of the markets and industries in which our businesses operate to migrate online and the continued growth and acceptance of online products and services as effective alternatives to traditional products and services, (vi) our continued ability to develop and monetize versions of our products and services for mobile and other digital devices, (vii) our ability to establish and maintain relationships with quality and trustworthy service professionals and caregivers, (viii) the ability of Angi Inc. to successfully implement its brand initiative (which could involve substantial costs, including as a result of a continued negative impact on its organic search placement) and expand Angi Services (its pre-priced offering), (ix) our ability to engage directly with users, subscribers, consumers, service professionals and caregivers directly on a timely basis, (x) our ability to access, collect and use personal data about our users and subscribers, (xi) the ability of our Chairman and Senior Executive, certain members of his family and our Chief Executive Officer to exercise significant influence over the composition of our board of directors, matters subject to stockholder approval and our operations, (xii) our inability to freely access the cash of Angi Inc. and its subsidiaries, (xiii) dilution with respect to our investment in Angi Inc., (xiv) certain risks relating to our Vimeo business (its total addressable market may be smaller than expected, it may not have the right product/market fit, its ability to convert free users into subscribers, its ability to scale its business effectively, service interruptions and increased hosting and delivery costs), (xv) our ability to compete, (xvi) adverse economic events or trends (particularly those that adversely impact advertising spending levels and consumer confidence and spending behavior), either generally and/or in any of the markets in which our businesses operate, (xvii) our ability to build, maintain and/or enhance our various brands, (xviii) the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on our businesses, (xix) our ability to protect our systems, technology and infrastructure from cyberattacks and to protect personal and confidential user information, as well as cyberattacks experienced by third parties, (xx) the occurrence of data security breaches and/or fraud, (xxi) increased liabilities and costs related to the processing, storage, use and disclosure of personal and confidential user information, (xxii) the integrity, quality, efficiency and scalability of our systems, technology and infrastructure (and those of third parties with whom we do business), (xxiii) changes in key personnel and (xxiv) certain risks related to the Spin-off (the market price of IAC securities could decline if the Spin-off is not completed, some or all of the expected benefits from the Spin-off may not be achieved, increased vulnerability to changing market conditions as a smaller, less diversified company following the completion of the Spin-off, the failure of the Spin-off to qualify as a transaction generally tax-free for U.S. federal income tax purposes, certain conflicts of interest, the value of IAC and Vimeo securities following the Spin-off might be less than the value of IAC securities before the completion of the Spin-off and decreases in the market price of IAC securities following the completion of the Spin-off for a variety of reasons, among other risks).  Certain of these and other risks and uncertainties are discussed in IAC’s filings with the SEC. Other unknown or unpredictable factors that could also adversely affect IAC's business, financial condition and results of operations may arise from time to time. In light of these risks and uncertainties, these forward-looking statements may not prove to be accurate. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which only reflect the views of IAC’s management as of the date of this letter. IAC does not undertake to update these forward-looking statements.
