TENDER OFFER

Investor Information

On June 7, 2018, Altaba, Inc. (“Altaba”) commenced a tender offer to purchase up to 195,000,000 (approximately 24%) of Altaba’s issued and outstanding shares of its common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Shares”), that are properly tendered in the Offer (as defined below) and not properly withdrawn. For each Share accepted in the Offer, stockholders will receive: (i) 0.35 American Depositary Shares (“Alibaba ADSs”) of Alibaba Group Holding Limited (“Alibaba”), which are held by Altaba in its investment portfolio, less any Alibaba ADSs withheld to satisfy applicable withholding taxes and subject to adjustment for fractional Alibaba ADSs (the “ADS Portion”), and (ii) an amount in cash equal to the Alibaba VWAP (as defined below) multiplied by 0.05, less any cash withheld to satisfy applicable withholding taxes and without interest (the “Cash Portion” and, together with the ADS Portion, the “Offer Consideration”), upon the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, dated June 7, 2018 (the “Offer to Purchase”) and in the related Letter of Transmittal (which together, as they may be amended or supplemented from time to time, constitute the “Offer”).

The expiration of the Offer, proration period and withdrawal rights has been extended.  The Offer, proration period and withdrawal rights will now expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 8, 2018, unless the Offer is further extended or withdrawn (such date and time, as it may be extended, the “Expiration Date”).

The “Alibaba VWAP” means the daily volume-weighted average price for an Alibaba ADS on the second trading day prior to the Expiration Date (the “Determination Date”). Altaba will announce the Alibaba VWAP and the Cash Portion of the Offer Consideration by press release and below no later than 4:30 p.m., New York City time, on the Determination Date (August 6, 2018 based on the current Expiration Date). Such press release will also be filed as an amendment to the Schedule TO-I that we have filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the Offer.

Upon the terms and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions of the Offer (including, if the Offer is further extended or amended and the terms and conditions of any extension or amendment), promptly following the Expiration Date, Altaba will accept for purchase, and will thereafter promptly purchase, all Shares properly tendered and not properly withdrawn prior to the Expiration Date.

While Altaba’s board of directors has authorized the Offer, it has not made and is not making, and none of Altaba, Altaba’s affiliates or subsidiaries, Altaba’s investment advisors, the Dealer Manager, the Information Agent or the Exchange Agent has made or is making, any recommendation to you as to whether you should tender or refrain from tendering your Shares. We have not authorized any person to make any such recommendation. You must make your own decision as to whether to tender your Shares and, if so, how many Shares to tender. Before taking any action with respect to the Offer, you should read carefully the information in, or incorporated by reference in, the Offer to Purchase and in the related Letter of Transmittal, including the purposes and effects of the Offer. You are urged to discuss your decisions with your own tax advisors, legal advisors, financial advisors and/or brokers.
