ITEM 2.06.    MATERIAL IMPAIRMENTS.

        In connection with the preparation of its consolidated financial statements as of and for the six months ended June 30, 2008, IAC/InterActiveCorp ("IAC") performed a test of the goodwill of its Retailing reporting units, HSN and Cornerstone Brands ("Cornerstone"), during June 2008. The timing of IAC's second quarter goodwill impairment test was accelerated, in part, due to the filing of an amendment, on June 26, 2008, to the Form 10 of HSN, Inc. ("HSNi") which was initially filed in connection with the planned spin-off of HSNi. HSNi is a newly formed subsidiary of IAC which will hold HSN and Cornerstone upon the consummation the spin-off.

        IAC prepared discounted cash flow analyses and reviewed the resulting valuations in the context of implied valuations based upon market multiples of EBITDA and the expected trading range of value of HSNi after the spin-off. Based upon these analyses, IAC believes that the goodwill of its HSN reporting unit is not impaired.

        However, IAC believes that the goodwill of Cornerstone is impaired. This impairment is due, in part, to the significant deterioration in the macro economic environment for retailers, particularly in the home and apparel categories (which are Cornerstone's primary markets), and the negative impact of these markets on Cornerstone's performance and the related reduction in market valuations for retailers. The effect of these market conditions has been exacerbated by execution issues and turnover of management of certain catalogs within Cornerstone. Cornerstone is expected to incur an operating loss for the first six months of 2008 compared to operating income of $13.7 million in the comparable year ago period. While we expect full year profitability for Cornerstone, its results are expected to be significantly lower than 2007.

        IAC has estimated the goodwill impairment to be approximately $300 million. In accordance with SFAS 142, "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets," IAC is currently performing a step-two impairment analysis and expects to complete this process in connection with its close process for the second quarter. While the aforementioned charge is an estimate, IAC does not expect the final analysis to be materially different.
