DILUTIVE SECURITIES

 

IAC has various dilutive securities. The table below details these securities as well as potential dilution at various stock prices (shares in millions; rounding differences may occur).

 

       Avg.                     
       Exercise   As of     
   Shares   Price   10/30/20   Dilution at: 
Share Price            $120.72   $125.00   $130.00   $135.00   $140.00 
                                    
Absolute Shares as of 10/30/20   85.3         85.3    85.3    85.3    85.3    85.3 
                                    
RSUs and non-publicy traded subsidiary denominated equity awards   1.6         0.4    0.4    0.4    0.4    0.4 
Options   4.4   $20.07    1.0    1.0    1.0    1.0    1.0 
Total Dilution             1.4    1.4    1.4    1.4    1.4 
% Dilution             1.6%   1.6%   1.6%   1.6%   1.6%
Total Diluted Shares Outstanding             86.8    86.8    86.8    86.8    86.8 

 

The dilutive securities presentation is calculated using the methods and assumptions described below, which are different from those used for GAAP dilution, which is calculated based on the treasury stock method.

 

The Company currently settles all equity awards on a net basis; therefore, the dilutive effect is presented as the net number of shares expected to be issued upon vesting or exercise, and in the case of options, assuming no proceeds are received by the Company. Any required withholding taxes are paid in cash by the Company on behalf of the employees assuming a withholding tax rate of 50%. In addition, the estimated income tax benefit from the tax deduction received upon the vesting or exercise of these awards is assumed to be used to repurchase IAC shares. Withholding taxes paid by the Company on behalf of the employees upon net settlement would be $314.7 million, assuming a stock price of $120.72 and a 50% withholding rate. The table above assumes no change in the fair value estimate of the non-publicly traded subsidiary denominated equity awards from the values used at September 30, 2020.

 

ANGI Homeservices Equity Awards and the Treatment of the Related Dilutive Effect

 

Certain ANGI Homeservices equity awards can be settled either in IAC or ANGI Homeservices common shares at IAC’s election. For purposes of the dilution calculation above, these awards are assumed to be settled in shares of ANGI Homeservices common stock; therefore, no dilution from these awards is included.

IAC PRINCIPLES OF FINANCIAL REPORTING

 

IAC reports Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow, both of which are supplemental measures to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These are among 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. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, however, should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. IAC endeavors to compensate for the limitations of the non-GAAP measures presented by providing the comparable GAAP measures with equal or greater prominence and descriptions of the reconciling items, including quantifying such items, to derive the non-GAAP measures. We encourage investors to examine the reconciling adjustments between the GAAP and non-GAAP measures, which are included in this release. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for a full year.

 

Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures

 

Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) is defined as operating income excluding: (1) stock-based compensation expense; (2) depreciation; and (3) acquisition-related items consisting of (i) amortization of intangible assets and impairments of goodwill and intangible assets, if applicable, and (ii) gains and losses recognized on changes in the fair value of contingent consideration arrangements. 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. The above items are excluded from our Adjusted EBITDA measure because these items are non-cash in nature. Adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations because it excludes the impact of certain expenses.

 

Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures. We believe Free Cash Flow is useful to investors because it represents the cash that our operating businesses generate, before taking into account non-operational cash movements. Free Cash Flow has certain limitations in that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the cash balance for the period, nor does it represent the residual cash flow for discretionary expenditures. For example, it does not take into account stock repurchases. Therefore, we think it is important to evaluate Free Cash Flow along with our consolidated statement of cash flows.

IAC PRINCIPLES OF FINANCIAL REPORTING (continued)

 

Non-Cash Expenses That Are Excluded From Adjusted EBITDA

 

Stock-based compensation expense consists principally of expense associated with awards issued by certain subsidiaries of the Company and expense related to awards that were granted under various IAC stock and annual incentive plans. These expenses are not paid in cash and we view the economic cost 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.  The Company is currently settling all stock-based awards on a net basis and remits the required tax-withholding amounts from its current funds.

 

Please see page 8 for a summary of our dilutive securities, including stock-based awards as of October 30, 2020 and a description of the calculation methodology.

 

 

Depreciation is a non-cash expense relating to our building, 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.

 

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

 

Gains and losses recognized on changes in the fair value of contingent consideration arrangements are accounting adjustments to report contingent consideration liabilities at fair value. These adjustments can be highly variable and are excluded from our assessment of performance because they are considered non-operational in nature and, therefore, are not indicative of current or future performance or the ongoing cost of doing business.

Actual results could differ materially from those contained in these forward-looking statements for a variety of reasons, including, among others: the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on our businesses, the risk inherent in separating Vimeo from IAC, the failure of the third-party investment in Vimeo to be consummated, our continued ability to successfully market, distribute and monetize our products and services through search engines, digital app stores and social media platforms, our ability to market our products and services in a successful and cost-effective manner, the continued display of links to websites offering our products and services in a prominent manner in search results, changes in our relationship with (or policies implemented by) Google, our ability to compete, the failure or delay of the markets and industries in which our businesses operate to migrate online, adverse economic events or trends (particularly those that adversely impact consumer confidence and spending behavior), either generally and/or in any of the markets in which our businesses operate, our ability to build, maintain and/or enhance our various brands, our ability to develop and monetize versions of our products and services for mobile and other digital devices, our ability to establish and maintain relationships with quality service professionals and caregivers, our continued ability to communicate with users and consumers via e-mail (or other sufficient means), our ability to access, collect and use personal data about our users and subscribers, our ability to successfully offset increasing digital app store fees, our ability to protect our systems from cyberattacks and to protect personal and confidential user information, the occurrence of data security breaches, fraud and/or additional regulation involving or impacting credit card payments, the integrity, quality, scalability and redundancy of our systems, technology and infrastructure (and those of third parties with whom we do business), changes in key personnel, our ability to service our outstanding indebtedness and interest rate risk, dilution with respect to our investment in ANGI Homeservices, foreign exchange currency rate fluctuations, operational and financial risks relating to acquisitions and our continued ability to identify suitable acquisition candidates, our ability to operate in (and expand into) international markets successfully, regulatory changes, our ability to adequately protect our intellectual property rights and not infringe the intellectual property rights of third parties and the possibility that our historical consolidated and combined results may not be indicative of our future results. Certain of these and other risks and uncertainties are discussed in IAC’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 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 press release. IAC does not undertake to update these forward-looking statements.
