Unless otherwise noted, the foregoing discussion compares financial information for the three months ended June 30, 2012 to the same period in 2011.
On September 23, 2011, Liberty Interactive completed the split-off of a wholly owned subsidiary, Liberty Media Corporation ("LMC") (formerly known as Liberty CapStarz, Inc. and Liberty Splitco, Inc.) (the "Split-Off"). At the time of the Split-Off, LMC owned all the assets, businesses and liabilities attributed to the Liberty Capital and Liberty Starz tracking stock groups immediately prior to the Split-Off. The Split-Off was effected by means of a redemption of all of the Liberty Capital common stock and Liberty Starz common stock of Liberty Interactive for all of the common stock of LMC. This transaction has been accounted for at historical cost due to the pro rata nature of the distribution.
Following the Split-Off, Liberty Interactive and LMC operate as separate, publicly traded companies, and neither has any stock ownership, beneficial or otherwise, in the other. In connection with the Split-Off, Liberty Interactive and LMC entered into certain agreements in order to govern certain of the ongoing relationships between the two companies after the Split-Off and to provide for an orderly transition. These agreements include a Reorganization Agreement, a Services Agreement, a Facilities Sharing Agreement and a Tax Sharing Agreement. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified for comparability with the current presentation.The following financial information is intended to supplement Liberty Interactive’s consolidated statements of operations which are included in its Form 10-Q.
