On October 1, 2015 - Mocha Merger Sub, Inc. ("Mocha"), a wholly owned merger subsidiary of Liberty Interactive Corporation ("Liberty Interactive"), merged with and into zulily, inc. ("zulily"), with zulily surviving the first merger as a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Liberty Interactive. Immediately following the first merger, and as part of the same plan, zulily, as surviving corporation of the first merger, will be merged with and into Ziggy Merger Sub, LLC ("Ziggy"), a direct wholly owned merger subsidiary of Liberty Interactive, with Ziggy surviving the second merger as the surviving company and a wholly owned direct subsidiary of Liberty Interactive.

As a result of this merger, each share of zulily Series A Common Stock and Series B Common Stock was exchanged for 0.3098 fractional shares of Liberty Interactive (Series A QVC Group common stock, QVCA) and $9.375 in cash.

The merger of zulily into Liberty Interactive qualifies as a tax-free reorganization with the meaning of Section 368(a)(1)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended. As a result, each zulily shareholder will recognize gain, but not loss, equal to the lesser of (1) the amount of gain realized (that is, the excess, if any, of the sum of the cash and the fair market value of the Liberty Interactive common stock (see below) received over such holder’s tax basis in the zulily stock surrendered in the merger); and (2) the amount of cash received in the merger. For this purpose, gain or loss must be calculated separately for each identifiable block of shares surrendered in the merger, and a loss realized on one block of shares may not be used to offset a gain realized on another block of shares. Cash received and gain realized in connection with the receipt of cash in lieu of a fractional share of Liberty Interactive common stock are not taken into account in making the computations of gain realized or recognized and basis of the shares received. Shareholders should consult with a qualified tax advisor for questions regarding their specific tax treatment.

Under applicable federal income tax rules, the fair market value of the Liberty Interactive common stock received on October 1, 2015 is $26.535.

Where one Liberty Interactive share is received in exchange for more than one zulily share, then the Adjusted Basis must be allocated to the Liberty Interactive shares received in a manner that reflects, to the greatest extent possible, the basis in zulily shares that were acquired on the same date and at the same price. To the extent it is not possible to allocate the aggregate basis in this manner, the aggregate basis of the zulily shares surrendered must be allocated to the Liberty Interactive shares in a manner that minimizes the disparity in the holding periods of the zulily shares whose basis is allocated to any particular Liberty Interactive share received.

No loss can be recognized upon the exchange of the zulily common stock for the Liberty Interactive common stock and cash. If a taxable loss is calculated on the deemed sale of the fractional shares of Liberty Interactive common stock deemed to have been received in the exchange, this loss can be recognized. Shareholders should consult with a qualified tax advisor for questions regarding their specific tax treatment.
