Liberty Interactive Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

On September 23, 2011, Liberty 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 redemption of all of the Liberty Capital common stock and Liberty Starz common stock of Liberty for all of the common stock of LMC. This transaction was accounted for at historical cost due to the pro rata nature of the distribution. The financial information provided reflects LMC as discontinued operations. Accordingly, the relevant financial statement balances and activities of the businesses, assets and liabilities owned by LMC at the time of the Split-off (for periods prior to the Split-Off) have been excluded from the included financial information.

Following the Split-Off, Liberty 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 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.

On August 9, 2012 Liberty Interactive completed the approved recapitalization of its common stock through the creation of the Liberty Interactive common stock and Liberty Ventures common stock as tracking stocks. In the recapitalization, each holder of Liberty Interactive common stock remained a holder of the same amount and series of Liberty Interactive common stock and received 0.05 of a share of the corresponding series of Liberty Ventures common stock, by means of a dividend, with cash issued in lieu of fractional shares of Liberty Ventures common stock.
