(b) Reflects the HomeAdvisor and Handy domestic marketplace, including consumer connection revenue for consumer matches, revenue from completed jobs sourced through the HomeAdvisor and Handy platforms and membership subscription revenue from service professionals. It excludes revenue from Angie’s List, mHelpDesk, HomeStars, Fixd Repair and Felix.
(c) Includes Angie’s List revenue (revenue from service professionals under contract for advertising and membership subscription fees from consumers) as well as revenue from mHelpDesk, HomeStars, Fixd Repair (acquired on January 25, 2019) and Felix prior to its sale on December 31, 2018.
|·||Revenue increased 18% to $357.4 million driven by:|
|o||27% Marketplace growth due to:|
|§||a 19% increase in service requests to 7.6 million|

Operating income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA
|($ in millions; rounding differences may occur)||Q3 2019||Q3 2018||Growth|
|Operating income (loss)|
Page 3 of 13
|·||Operating income decreased $8.8 million to $24.7 million primarily driven by:|
|o||24% lower Adjusted EBITDA due primarily to higher selling and marketing expense as a percentage of revenue and investments at Handy, Fixd Repair and the pre-priced product expansion at HomeAdvisor, partially offset by $1.0 million Angie’s List transaction-related items ($0.7 million in deferred revenue write-offs and $0.3 million of severance, retention, transaction and integration-related costs) and $1.3 million Handy transaction costs in the prior year period|
|o||$5.1 million higher depreciation expense due primarily to internally developed capitalized software and leasehold improvements over the past year|
The above drivers were partially offset by:
|o||$13.7 million lower stock-based compensation expense due primarily to $8.6 million lower expense related to the Angie’s List transaction and the reversal of $7.6 million in cumulative expense related to certain performance-based awards that are no longer expected to vest, partially offset by $2.9 million related to new awards issued in connection with recent acquisitions|
|o||$1.4 million lower amortization of intangibles driven by lower expense related to the Angie’s List transaction, partially offset by the acquisition of Handy|
The Company recorded an income tax provision of $4.9 million in Q3 2019 for an effective tax rate of 21%. The effective tax rate approximates the statutory rate due primarily to unbenefited foreign losses and state taxes, offset by research credits and excess tax benefits generated by the exercise and vesting of stock-based awards. The Company recorded an income tax provision of $5.1 million in Q3 2018 for an effective tax rate of 16%, due primarily to excess tax benefits generated by the exercise and vesting of stock-based awards.

(f) Marketplace quarterly revenue divided by Marketplace Paying Service Professionals.
(g) Reflects the total number of Angie’s List service professionals under contract for advertising at the end of the period.

ANGI Homeservices 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).
|Absolute Shares as of 11/1/19||502.8||502.8||502.8||502.8||502.8||502.8|
|RSUs and subsidiary denominated equity awards||6.5||1.7||1.7||1.7||1.7||1.7|
|IAC denominated equity awards||6.0||1.3||1.1||1.0||0.9||0.8|
|Total Diluted Shares Outstanding||510.8||511.3||511.6||511.9||512.1|
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.
Stock settled stock appreciation rights (“SARS”) – These awards are settled on a net basis, with the Company paying in cash any required withholding taxes on behalf of the employees upon net settlement of the SARs; therefore, the dilutive effect is presented as the net number of shares expected to be issued upon exercise assuming a withholding tax rate of 50%. In addition, the estimated income tax benefit from the tax deduction received upon the exercise of these awards is assumed to be used to repurchase ANGI Homeservices shares. Withholding taxes paid by the Company on behalf of the employees upon net settlement would be $43.7 million, assuming a stock price of $7.03 and a 50% withholding rate.
Options – The Company settles stock options on a net basis; therefore, the dilutive effect is presented as the net number of shares expected to be issued upon exercise assuming no proceeds are received by the Company and 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 exercise of these awards is assumed to be used to repurchase ANGI Homeservices shares. Withholding taxes paid by the Company on behalf of the employees upon net settlement would be less than $0.1 million, assuming a stock price of $7.03 and a 50% withholding rate.
RSUs and subsidiary denominated equity awards – These awards are settled on a net basis, with the Company paying in cash any required withholding taxes on behalf of the employees upon net settlement of the awards; therefore, the dilutive effect is presented as the net number of shares expected to be issued upon vesting or exercise 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 ANGI Homeservices shares. Withholding taxes paid by the Company on behalf of the employees upon vesting or exercise would have been $21.7 million, assuming a stock price of $7.03 and a 50% withholding rate. The table above assumes no change in the fair value estimate of the subsidiary denominated equity awards from the values used at September 30, 2019.
IAC denominated equity awards – IAC denominated equity awards represent options and performance-based restricted stock units denominated in the shares of IAC that have been issued to employees of ANGI Homeservices. Upon the exercise or vesting of IAC equity awards, IAC will settle the awards with shares of IAC, and ANGI Homeservices will issue additional shares of ANGI Homeservices to IAC as reimbursement. The estimated income tax benefit from the tax deduction received upon the exercise or vesting of IAC denominated equity awards is assumed to be used to repurchase ANGI Homeservices shares.

ANGI HOMESERVICES PRINCIPLES OF FINANCIAL REPORTING
ANGI Homeservices reports Pro Forma Revenue, Europe Revenue excluding Foreign Exchange Effects, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow, all of which are supplemental measures to GAAP. Pro Forma Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow 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. Europe Revenue Excluding Foreign Exchange Effects provides a comparable framework for assessing how our European businesses performed without the effect of exchange rate differences when compared to prior periods. 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. ANGI Homeservices 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
Pro Forma Revenue is defined as revenue excluding (i) in any prior period, revenue from any businesses sold or disposed of, and for which no revenue is reflected in the current period and (ii) any write-offs of deferred revenue as a result of purchase accounting adjustments. The percentage change in revenue on a Pro Forma Revenue basis is calculated by subtracting Pro Forma Revenue for the applicable period in the year ended December 31, 2018 from the Pro Forma Revenue as reported or forecasted revenue in the applicable period in the year ending December 31, 2019 and dividing the resulting difference by the Pro Forma Revenue in the applicable period in the year ended December 31, 2018. We believe the presentation of Pro Forma Revenue and the percentage change in revenue on a pro forma basis, in addition to revenue on a GAAP basis, helps improve the ability to understand ANGI Homeservices’ revenue performance because it presents revenue on a comparable basis by excluding the revenue from any businesses sold or disposed of, and for which no revenue is reflected in the current period and any write-offs of deferred revenue as a result of purchase accounting adjustments.
Europe Revenue Excluding Foreign Exchange Effects is calculated by translating current period revenues using prior period exchange rates. The percentage change in Europe Revenue Excluding Foreign Exchange Effects is calculated by determining the change in current period revenues over prior period revenues where current period revenues are translated using prior period exchange rates. We believe the impact of foreign exchange rates on Europe’s revenue may be an important factor in understanding period over period comparisons if movement in rates is significant. Since our results are reported in U.S. dollars, European revenues are favorably impacted as the U.S. dollar weakens relative to other foreign currencies, and unfavorably impacted as the U.S dollar strengthens relative to other foreign currencies. We believe the presentation of Europe Revenue Excluding Foreign Exchange Effects in addition to reported revenue helps improve the ability to understand the performance of Europe because it excludes the impact of foreign currency volatility that is not indicative of Europe’s core operating results.
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 amortization of intangible assets and impairments of goodwill and intangible assets, if applicable. 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 mandatory debt service requirements. Therefore, we think it is important to evaluate Free Cash Flow along with our consolidated statement of cash flows.

ANGI HOMESERVICES PRINCIPLES OF FINANCIAL REPORTING (continued)
Non-Cash Expenses That Are Excluded From Adjusted EBITDA
Stock-based compensation expense consists principally of expense associated with the grants, including unvested grants assumed in acquisitions (including the combination of HomeAdvisor and Angie’s List), of SARs, RSUs, stock options and performance-based RSUs. 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. Performance-based RSUs are included only to the extent the applicable performance condition(s) have been met (assuming the end of the reporting period is the end of the contingency period). To the extent stock-based awards are settled on a net basis, the Company remits the required tax-withholding amounts from its current funds.
Please see page 5 for a summary of our dilutive securities as of November 1, 2019 and a description of the calculation methodology.
Depreciation is a non-cash expense relating to our property 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 (including the combination of HomeAdvisor and Angie’s List). At the time of an acquisition, the identifiable definite-lived intangible assets of the acquired company, such as service professional relationships, technology, memberships, customer lists and user base and trade names, 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.
