Wind-Down Incentive Plan

On June18, 2018, in connection with Actua Corporation’s (the “Company’s”) ongoing wind-down of its operations, the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) adopted the Actua Corporation Wind-Down Incentive Plan (the “Incentive Plan”) to retain certain Company employees and incent those employees to maximize value in connection with the monetization of the Company’s minority holdings. to the Incentive Plan, to the extent that the aggregate cash proceeds from the monetization of (1)Instamed Holdings, Inc., (2) Parchment Inc., (3) Relay Holdings, LLC, (4)Savana, Inc. and (5)Stage2 Capital Venture Associates, L.P. exceed the aggregate book value of those assets, the Company will distribute an aggregate of 10% of those excess cash proceeds to be allocated among certain of the Company’s employees, including Walter W. Buckley, III, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer.

The foregoing description of the Incentive Plan does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the Incentive Plan, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Employment Arrangement with Chief Financial Officer

In order to retain the services of R. Kirk Morgan, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, to assist in the wind-down of the Company’s operations, on June18, 2018, the Board approved a retention arrangement that provides for the payment to Mr.Morgan of $100,000 on June30, 2018 and an additional payment of $100,000 on June30, 2019, subject to Mr.Morgan’s continued employment through June30, 2019. Mr.Morgan is not eligible to participate in the Incentive Plan.

Liquidating Distribution

On June18, 2018, in connection with the Company’s receipt of approximately $8.6million of additional cash proceeds from post-closing purchase price adjustments related to the sale of Folio Dynamics Holdings, Inc., the Board approved a liquidating distribution of $0.43 per share to the Company’s stockholders of record as of the close of business on June25, 2018 (the “Record Date”) in accordance with the Company’s previously announced Plan of Dissolution (the “Plan of Liquidation”) (such distribution, the “Liquidating Distribution”). As previously announced, in accordance with the Plan of Liquidation, the Company’s stock transfer books were closed at the close of business on April19, 2018 (the “Effective Time”), and no transfers of the Company’s common stock were recorded after the Effective Time except for transfers by will, intestate succession or operation of law and transfers initiated prior to the Effective Time that settled after the Effective Time. The payment of the Liquidating Distribution will be made on June28, 2018.

The Company intends to make additional liquidating distributions to its stockholders from time to time if and when it monetizes its remaining assets. However, the Company cannot predict with certainty the amount and timing of any additional liquidating distributions. Based on the information currently available to it, the Company has revised its previously estimated aggregate additional distribution range from between $0.80 and $2.07 per share to between $0.63 and $1.54 per share, reflecting the receipt of approximately $8.6million from Envestnet, Inc. in connection with the post-closing purchase price adjustments resulting from the sale of Folio Dynamics Holdings, Inc. and taking into account the $0.43 per share Liquidating Distribution.

On June21, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the approval of the Liquidating Distribution. A copy of the Company’s press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
