Tracking Stocks 101

What are tracking stocks?

  • Tracking stocks allow investors to invest in the performance of a specific subset of Liberty Media’s assets and liabilities

Rationale for tracking stock restructuring

  • Aim to reduce trading discount to NAV at which Liberty Media Corporation stock traded prior to creation ofthe tracking stocks
  • Provide greater investor choice
  • Create specific transaction/compensation currencies for each tracker
  • Allows separate capitalization and fundraising in a more targeted way
  • Continue to provide advantages of doing business under common ownership
  • Provide greater ability to tailor management and employee incentives

Nothing has changed about the legal ownership or control of the Braves – Liberty Media Corporation remains the legal owner. Liberty Media has not spun-off, sold or otherwise monetized the Atlanta Braves
