Zillow Group expects to release its financial results for the first quarter of 2018 in early May 2018. See the slide entitled “Appendix – Reconciliation of Preliminary Q1 2018 Adjusted EBITDA” for a reconciliation of Preliminary Adjusted EBITDA to preliminary net loss, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Zillow Group expects to provide the updated outlook for each segment in early May 2018. Zillow Group has not provided a quantitative reconciliation of forecasted Adjusted EBITDA to forecasted GAAP net income (loss) within this presentation because we are unable, without making unreasonable efforts, to calculate certain reconciling items with confidence. These items include, but are not limited to; income taxes which are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in the market price of our capital stock; depreciation and amortization expense from new acquisitions; impairments of assets; and acquisition-related costs. These items, which could materially affect the computation of forward-looking GAAP net income (loss), are inherently uncertain and depend on various factors, many of which are outside of Zillow Group’s control. For more information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this presentation, please see the slide entitled “Appendix - Use of non-GAAP financial measure”.

Slide 8

Appendix – Use of non-GAAP financial measure To provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, this presentation includes references to Adjusted EBITDA (including forecasted Adjusted EBITDA), which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We have provided a reconciliation of preliminary Q1 2018 Adjusted EBITDA to preliminary Q1 2018 net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, on the slide entitled “Appendix – Reconciliation of Preliminary Q1 2018 Adjusted EBITDA”. Adjusted EBITDA is a key metric used by our management and board of directors to measure operating performance and trends, and to prepare and approve our annual budget. The exclusion of certain expenses in calculating Adjusted EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparisons on a period-to-period basis.   Our use of Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are: -Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; -Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; -Adjusted EBITDA does not consider the potentially dilutive impact of share-based compensation; -Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements; -Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect acquisition-related costs; -Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense or other income; -Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income taxes; and -Other companies, including companies in our own industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.   Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss and our other GAAP results.
