WHEREAS, on December 19, 2019, Match Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation ( “Old Match”), entered into a transaction agreement (as amended on April 28, 2020, the “Transaction Agreement”) with IAC/InterActiveCorp (“IAC”), IAC Holdings, Inc., a direct wholly owned subsidiary of IAC (“New IAC”), and Valentine Merger Sub LLC, an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of IAC (“New Match Merger Sub”), pursuant to which (i) the stockholders of Old Match became stockholders of IAC, which has been renamed as Match Group, Inc. (“New Match”), and (ii) Old Match merged with and into New Match Merger Sub and became an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of New Match (the “Merger”);
WHEREAS, pursuant to the Transaction Agreement, certain equity awards in respect of the common stock of Old Match (the “Old Match Awards”) issued under the Plan and outstanding at the effective time of the Merger (the “Merger Effective Time”) were to be adjusted in accordance with the Transaction Agreement and Section 3(d) of the Plan to relate to shares of New Match, and to reflect the consideration received by the stockholders of Old Match pursuant to the Merger;
WHEREAS, to facilitate the assumption by New Match of the Old Match Awards, New Match assumed the Plan and replaced Old Match as the sponsor and issuer under the Plan, and
