2017 Performance Plan and Performance
Shares

On March10, 2017, Actuas (Actuas) Board of Directors (the
Board) established the Actua 2017 Performance Plan (the
Performance Plan). The Performance Plan sets forth
specific business goals against which Actuas executive officers
and other employees will be measured for the purpose of awarding
bonuses and vesting performance shares for the year ending
December31, 2017. Awards under the Performance Plan can range
from between 0% and 200%of an individuals target amount.

Actuas 2017 goals under the Performance Plan include quantitative
goals representing 70%of the bonus potential and qualitative
goals representing 30%of the bonus potential. The relative
weighting of each element of the Actua-specific goals is as
follows:

20%of the potential bonus award is tied to the achievement by
Actua of a specified consolidated GAAP revenue goal;
25%of the potential bonus award is tied to the achievement by
Actua of a specified bookings goal;
25% of the bonus potential is tied to the achievement by
Actua of a specified consolidated adjusted non-GAAP earnings
before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization
(EBITDA) goal; and
30%of the potential bonus is tied to Actuas execution against
the following qualitative goals: (1)execution of
Board-approved strategic initiatives, (2)capital management
and (3)reaction to unforeseen market/business conditions.

Following the end of the 2017 year, the Compensation Committee of
the Board (the Compensation Committee) will evaluate
Actuas 2017 performance and determine the extent (expressed as a
percentage) to which the 2017 Actua Performance Plan goals and
individual goals, if applicable, were achieved (such percentage,
the Achievement Percentage). The Compensation Committee
will then provide for the vesting of performance shares and/or
award cash bonuses in accordance with each individuals
Achievement Percentage under the terms of the Performance Plan.

OnMarch 10, 2017, the members of Actuas senior management team,
including each of Actuas executive officers, were issued
performance shares valued at 50%of their respective individual
target bonuses under the Performance Plan, based on a per share
price of $13.85 (i.e., the closing market price of Actuas Common
Stock on that date) (such shares, the Performance Shares).
If and to the extent that any such individuals Achievement
Percentage is determined to be:

greater than 0% but less than 50%, a percentage of his or her
shares equal to the Achievement Percentage will vest; or
greater than or equal to 50%, all of his or her Performance
Shares will vest.

Any bonus payable under the Performance Plan to a recipient of
Performance Shares by virtue of that recipients Achievement
Percentage exceeding 50%would be paid in cash. Any bonus payable
to Actua employees that are not members of the senior management
team would be paid solely in cash based on such individuals
Achievement Percentage.

Performance Shares do not purport to be complete and are
qualified in their respective entireties by reference to the
actual text of the Performance Plan and the form of 2017
Performance Plan Restricted Share Agreement, which are attached
