CARE.COM, INC.


INTRODUCTION

        Buzz Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Purchaser"), and a wholly-owned subsidiary of IAC/InterActiveCorp, a Delaware corporation ("Parent"), is offering to purchase (the "Offer") (i) all outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the "Common Shares"), of Care.com, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Care.com" or the "Company"), at a price per share of $15.00 (the "Common Share Offer Price") and (ii) all outstanding shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the "Preferred Shares," and together with the Common Shares, the "Shares"), of Care.com, at (x) 150% of the Liquidation Preference per share, as specified in the Certificate of Designations for the Preferred Shares, plus (y) Accrued and Unpaid Dividends payable in respect of such Preferred Shares, as specified in the Certificate of Designations for the Preferred Shares, in the case of clauses (x) and (y), calculated as of and including the expiration date for the Offer, pursuant to the terms of the Certificate of Designations (such amount, the "Preferred Share Offer Price" and, together with the Common Share Offer Price, the "Offer Price"), in each case, net to the holder in cash, without interest, less any applicable withholding taxes, upon the terms and subject to the conditions described in this Offer to Purchase (together with any amendments or supplements hereto, this "Offer to Purchase") and in the related Letter of Transmittal (together with any amendments or supplements thereto, the "Letter of Transmittal"). Each Share owned by any of Care.com's wholly-owned subsidiaries or by Parent or any of its subsidiaries (including Purchaser) shall be cancelled immediately prior to the time when the certificate of merger is filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the "Secretary of State") and such certificate of merger is accepted for record by the Secretary of State, or at such other subsequent date or time as Parent and Care.com may agree and specify in the certificate of merger in writing, in accordance with the DGCL (the "Effective Time"), and no consideration shall be delivered in exchange for such Shares.

        The Offer is being made in connection with the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of December 20, 2019 (together with any amendments or supplements thereto, the "Merger Agreement"), among Care.com, Parent and Purchaser, pursuant to which, after the completion of the Offer and the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, Purchaser will be merged with and into Care.com, and Care.com will be the surviving corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (such corporation, the "Surviving Corporation" and such merger, the "Merger").

        If your Shares are registered in your name and you tender directly to Computershare Trust Company, N.A., the depositary and paying agent for the Offer (the "Depositary"), you will not be obligated to pay brokerage fees or commissions or, except as otherwise provided in Instruction 6 of the Letter of Transmittal, transfer taxes on the purchase of Shares by Purchaser pursuant to the Offer. If you hold your Shares through a broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee you should check with such institution as to whether it charges any service fees or commissions.

        In addition, if you do not complete and sign the IRS Form W-9 that is provided with the Letter of Transmittal, or an IRS Form W-8BEN, W-8BEN-E or other IRS Form W-8, as applicable, you may be subject to U.S. federal backup withholding tax on the gross proceeds payable to you pursuant to the Offer or the Merger. Backup withholding is not an additional tax and any amounts withheld under the backup withholding rules may be refunded or credited against your U.S. federal income tax liability provided certain information is timely provided to the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS"). All stockholders should review the discussion in Section 3—"Procedures for Tendering Shares" and Section 5—"U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Offer and the Merger."

9


        We will pay all charges and expenses of the Depositary and Georgeson LLC, the information agent for the Offer (the "Information Agent"). Holders who have lost their Share certificates may be required to pay a customary fee.

        The Offer is not subject to any financing condition. The Offer is subject to the following conditions, among others:

        Purchaser and Parent have the right to waive certain of the conditions to the Offer in their sole discretion; provided that Purchaser and Parent may not waive the Minimum Tender Condition. See Section 13—"Conditions of the Offer."

        The Offer will expire one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on February 10, 2020, unless the Offer is extended. See Section 1—"Terms of the Offer", Section 13—"Conditions of the Offer" and Section 15—"Certain Legal Matters; Regulatory Approvals."

        After careful consideration, the Care.com board of directors (the "Care.com Board"), at a meeting duly called and held and acting by unanimous approval of the directors present at the meeting, adopted resolutions (i) determining that the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement (the "Transactions"), including the Offer and the Merger, are advisable, fair to and in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders, (ii) approving, adopting and declaring advisable the Merger Agreement and the Transactions, including the Offer and the Merger, (iii) determining that the Merger shall be effected as soon as practicable following the Acceptance Time without a vote of the Company's stockholders pursuant to Section 251(h) of the DGCL and (iv) recommending that the Company's stockholders accept the Offer and tender their Common Shares and Preferred Shares, as applicable, to Purchaser in response to the Offer.

        For factors considered by the Care.com Board, see Care.com's Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 (the "Schedule 14D-9") filed with the SEC in connection with the Offer, a copy of which (without certain exhibits) is being furnished to stockholders concurrently herewith.

10


        The Offer is being made in connection with the Merger Agreement, pursuant to which, after the consummation of the Offer and the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, the Merger will be effected. The Merger shall become effective when the certificate of merger is filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the "Secretary of State") or at such other subsequent date or time as Parent, Purchaser and Care.com may agree and specify in the certificate of merger in writing, in accordance with the DGCL (the "Effective Time"). At the Effective Time, (i) each Common Share issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than any (A) Common Shares held in the treasury of the Company, (B) Common Shares that at the commencement of the Offer were owned by Parent or Purchaser, or any direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company, Parent or Purchaser, (C) Common Shares irrevocably accepted for purchase in the Offer and (D) Common Shares held by the Company stockholders who properly demand and perfect appraisal rights under Delaware law, which will be cancelled and for which no payment will be delivered) will be cancelled and will be converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the Common Share Offer Price and (ii) each Preferred Share issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than (A) Preferred Shares held in the treasury of the Company, (B) Preferred Shares that at the commencement of the Offer were owned by Parent or Purchaser, or any direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of Parent or Purchaser, (C) Preferred Shares irrevocably accepted for purchase in the Offer and (D) Preferred Shares held by the Company stockholders who properly demand and perfect appraisal rights under Delaware law, which will be cancelled and for which no payment will be delivered) will be cancelled and converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the Preferred Share Offer Price ((i) and (ii) together, the "Merger Consideration") payable, without any interest thereon and subject to any withholding taxes, to the holder of such Share, upon surrender of the certificate that formerly evidenced such Share or, with respect to uncertificated Shares, upon the receipt by the Depositary of an Agent's Message (as defined below) relating to such Shares. The Merger Agreement is more fully described in Section 11—"Purpose of the Offer and Plans for Care.com; Summary of the Merger Agreement and Certain Other Agreements," which also contains a discussion of the treatment of Care.com's stock options and restricted stock units in the Merger. Section 5—"U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Offer and the Merger" below describes the U.S. federal income tax consequences generally applicable to the U.S. Holders (as defined below) whose Shares are tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer or whose Shares are converted into the right to receive cash in the Merger.

        Because the Merger will be consummated in accordance with Section 251(h) of the DGCL, approval of the Merger will not require a vote of Care.com's stockholders. If the Minimum Tender Condition is satisfied and we accept Shares for payment pursuant to the Offer, we will hold a sufficient number of Shares to ensure that Care.com will not be required to submit the adoption of the Merger Agreement to a vote of its stockholders. As a result of the Merger, Care.com will cease to be a publicly-traded company and will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent. See Section 11—"Purpose of the Offer and Plans for Care.com; Summary of the Merger Agreement and Certain Other Agreements."

        Stockholders who have not tendered their Shares and continue to own their Shares at the time of the Merger and fulfill certain other requirements of the DGCL will have appraisal rights in connection with the Merger. See Section 15—"Certain Legal Matters."

        This Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal contain important information and both documents should be read carefully and in their entirety before any decision is made with respect to the Offer.

THE TENDER OFFER

1.     Terms of the Offer.

        Upon the terms and subject to the prior satisfaction or waiver of the conditions of the Offer (including, if the Offer is extended or amended, the terms and conditions of any extension or amendment), Purchaser will accept for payment, purchase and pay for all Shares validly tendered prior to the expiration of the Offer, and not properly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer. The Offer will expire one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on February 10, 2020 (the "Initial Expiration Date"), or, if Purchaser has extended the Initial Expiration Date in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement, the date and time to which the Offer has been so extended (the Initial Expiration Date, or such later date and time to which the Initial Expiration Date has been extended in accordance with the Merger Agreement, the "Expiration Date").

        The Offer is conditioned upon the satisfaction of the Minimum Tender Condition and the other conditions described in Section 13—"Conditions of the Offer." Purchaser may terminate the Offer without purchasing any Shares if certain events described in Section 11—"Purpose of the Offer and Plans for Care.com; Summary of the Merger Agreement and Certain Other Agreements—Summary of the Merger Agreement—Termination" occur.

        To the extent permitted by applicable law and the Merger Agreement, Purchaser expressly reserves the right to increase the Offer Price or to make any other changes in the terms and conditions of the Offer. However, pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Purchaser has agreed that it will not, without the prior written consent of Care.com:

        Subject to the satisfaction of the Minimum Tender Condition and the satisfaction, or waiver, of the other conditions and requirements set forth in Section 13 hereof, Purchaser will accept for payment (the time of such acceptance the "Acceptance Time") and pay for all Shares validly tendered and not properly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer as soon as practicable following the Expiration Date.

        If, on or before the Expiration Date, Purchaser increases the consideration being paid for Shares accepted for payment in the Offer, such increased consideration will be paid to all stockholders whose Shares are purchased in the Offer, whether or not such Shares were tendered before the announcement of the increase in consideration. We also expressly reserve the right to modify the terms of the Offer, subject to compliance with the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), the Merger Agreement and the restrictions identified in items (1) through (8) above.

12


        The Merger Agreement provides that (i) if on any then scheduled Expiration Date, any of the conditions to the Offer (including the Minimum Tender Condition and the other conditions and requirements set forth in Section 13 hereof) have not been satisfied or waived by Purchaser, Purchaser shall extend the Offer for successive periods of up to ten business days each (or longer if agreed to by Purchaser and the Company) in order to permit the satisfaction of such conditions; provided, however, that Purchaser shall not be required to extend the Offer beyond June 20, 2020 (the "Outside Date") and (ii) Purchaser shall extend the Offer for any period or periods required by applicable law or applicable rules, regulations, interpretations or positions of the SEC or its staff.

        Except as set forth above, there can be no assurance that Purchaser will be required under the Merger Agreement to extend the Offer. During any extension of the initial offering period pursuant to the paragraphs above, all Shares previously tendered and not withdrawn will remain subject to the Offer. See Section 4—"Withdrawal Rights."

        No subsequent offering period will be available following the expiration of the Offer (as it may be extended pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement).

        If, subject to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Purchaser makes a material change in the terms of the Offer or the information concerning the Offer, or if Purchaser waives a material condition of the Offer, Purchaser will disseminate additional tender offer materials and extend the Offer if and to the extent required by Rules 14d-3(b)(1), 14d-4(d), 14d-6(c) and l4e-1 under the Exchange Act or otherwise. The minimum period during which a tender offer must remain open following material changes in the terms of the tender offer or the information concerning the tender offer, other than a change in the consideration offered or a change in the percentage of securities sought, will depend upon the facts and circumstances, including the relative materiality of the terms or information changes. With respect to a change in the consideration offered or a change in the percentage of securities sought, a tender offer generally must remain open for a minimum of ten business days following such change to allow for adequate disclosure to stockholders.

        Purchaser expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion, subject to the terms and upon the conditions of the Merger Agreement and the applicable rules and regulations of the SEC, to not accept for payment any Shares if, at the expiration of the Offer, any of the conditions to the Offer set forth in Section 13—"Conditions of the Offer" have not been satisfied. Under certain circumstances, Parent and Purchaser may terminate the Merger Agreement and the Offer.

        Any extension, waiver or amendment of the Offer or termination of the Offer will be followed, as promptly as practicable, by public announcement thereof, such announcement in the case of an extension to be issued not later than 9:00 a.m., Eastern Time, on the next business day after the Expiration Date in accordance with the public announcement requirements of Rules 14d-3(b)(1), 14d-4(d), 14d-6(c) and l4e-1(d) under the Exchange Act. Without limiting Purchaser's obligation under such rule or the manner in which Purchaser or Parent may choose to make any public announcement, Purchaser or Parent currently intend to make announcements by issuing a press release to PR Newswire for general dissemination (or such other national media outlet or outlets we deem prudent) and making any appropriate filing with the SEC.

        Subject to the satisfaction of the remaining conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Purchaser, Parent and Care.com are required to effect the Merger pursuant to Section 251(h) of the DGCL at 8:00 a.m., local time, on the same business day as the Acceptance Time, except if each of the applicable conditions to the Merger set forth below in Section 11 under the caption "Conditions to the Merger" have not been satisfied or waived by such date, in which case on no later than the first business day on which each of such conditions is satisfied.

        The acquisition of Care.com will be accounted for by Parent as a business combination in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 805, Business Combinations.

13


        Care.com has agreed to provide Purchaser with its list of stockholders and security position listings for the purpose of communicating with and disseminating the Offer to record and beneficial holders of Shares. This Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal will be mailed to record and beneficial holders of Shares whose names appear on Care.com's stockholder list and will be furnished to brokers, dealers, commercial banks, trust companies and similar persons whose names, or the names of whose nominees, appear on the stockholder list or, if applicable, who are listed as participants in a clearing agency's security position listing, for subsequent transmittal to beneficial owners of Shares.

2.     Acceptance for Payment and Payment for Shares.

        Subject to the satisfaction of the Minimum Tender Condition and the satisfaction, or waiver, of the other conditions and requirements set forth in Section 13 hereof, Purchaser will accept for payment (the time of such acceptance the "Acceptance Time") and pay for all Shares validly tendered and not properly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer as soon as practicable following the Expiration Date.

        For each person that was, immediately prior to the Effective Time, a holder of record of Shares represented by certificates (the "Certificates"), payment for Shares tendered and accepted for payment pursuant to the Offer will be made only upon: (i) surrender of a Certificate (or affidavit of loss in lieu of the Certificate) to the Depositary and (ii) delivery of a Letter of Transmittal, duly executed and in proper form, with respect to such Certificates to the Depositary. See Section 3—"Procedures for Tendering Shares."

        For each holder of non-certificated Shares represented by book-entry, payment for Shares tendered and accepted for payment pursuant to the Offer will be made as promptly as practicable after the Effective Time upon delivery of a duly executed Letter of Transmittal to the Depositary. See Section 3—"Procedures for Tendering Shares."

        For purposes of the Offer, if and when Purchaser gives oral or written notice to the Depositary of its acceptance for payment of such Shares pursuant to the Offer, then Purchaser has accepted for payment and thereby purchased Shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Offer, payment for Shares accepted for payment pursuant to the Offer will be made by deposit of the aggregate Offer Price with the Depositary, which will act as agent for the tendering holders of Shares for purposes of receiving payments from Purchaser and transmitting such payments to the tendering holders of Shares. Under no circumstances will interest be paid on the Common Share Offer Price or the Preferred Share Offer Price for Shares, regardless of any extension of the Offer or any delay in payment for Shares.

        If any tendered Shares are not accepted for payment pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Offer for any reason, or if certificates are submitted for more Shares than are tendered, certificates for such unpurchased Shares will be returned (or new certificates for the Shares not tendered will be sent), without expense to the tendering stockholder (or, in the case of Shares tendered by book-entry transfer into the Depositary's account at The Depository Trust Company ("DTC") pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 3—"Procedures for Tendering Shares," such Shares will be credited to an account maintained with DTC) promptly following expiration or termination of the Offer.

3.     Procedures for Tendering Shares.

        Valid Tender of Shares.    Except as set forth below, to validly tender Shares pursuant to the Offer, (i) a properly completed and duly executed Letter of Transmittal in accordance with the instructions of the Letter of Transmittal, with any required signature guarantees, or an Agent's Message (as defined below) in connection with a book-entry delivery of Shares, and any other documents required by the Letter of Transmittal and any other customary documents required by the Depositary, must be received by the Depositary at one of its addresses set forth on the back cover of this Offer to Purchase prior to

14


the expiration of the Offer and either (a) certificates representing Shares tendered must be delivered to the Depositary or (b) such Shares must be properly delivered pursuant to the procedures for book-entry transfer described below and a confirmation of such delivery received by the Depositary (which confirmation must include an Agent's Message if the tendering stockholder has not delivered a Letter of Transmittal), in each case, prior to the Expiration Date or (ii) the tendering stockholder must comply with the guaranteed delivery procedures set forth below. The term "Agent's Message" means a message, transmitted by DTC to, and received by, the Depositary and forming a part of a Book-Entry Confirmation (as defined below), which states that DTC has received an express acknowledgment from the participant in DTC tendering the Shares which are the subject of such Book-Entry Confirmation that such participant has received and agrees to be bound by the terms of the Letter of Transmittal and that Purchaser may enforce such agreement against the participant.

        Book-Entry Transfer.    The Depositary will take steps to establish and maintain an account with respect to the Shares at DTC for purposes of the Offer. Any financial institution that is a participant in DTC's systems may make a book-entry transfer of Shares by causing DTC to transfer such Shares into the Depositary's account in accordance with DTC's procedures for such transfer. However, although delivery of Shares may be effected through book-entry transfer, either the Letter of Transmittal, properly completed and duly executed, together with any required signature guarantees, or an Agent's Message in lieu of the Letter of Transmittal, and any other required documents, must, in any case, be transmitted to and received by the Depositary at one of its addresses set forth on the back cover of this Offer to Purchase prior to the Expiration Date or the tendering stockholder must comply with the guaranteed delivery procedures described below. The confirmation of a book-entry transfer of Shares into the Depositary's account at DTC as described above is referred to herein as a "Book-Entry Confirmation."

        Delivery of documents to DTC in accordance with DTC's procedures does not constitute delivery to the Depositary.

        Signature Guarantees and Stock Powers.    Except as otherwise provided below, all signatures on a Letter of Transmittal must be guaranteed by a financial institution (including most commercial banks, savings and loan associations and brokerage houses) that is a member in good standing of a recognized Medallion Program approved by the Securities Transfer Association, Inc., including the Security Transfer Agents Medallion Program, the New York Stock Exchange Medallion Signature Program and the Stock Exchanges Medallion Program (each, an "Eligible Institution"). Signatures on a Letter of Transmittal need not be guaranteed (i) if the Letter of Transmittal is signed by the registered owner(s) (which term, for purposes of this section, includes any participant in any of DTC's systems whose name appears on a security position listing as the owner of the Shares) of Shares tendered therewith and such registered owner has not completed the box entitled "Special Payment Instructions" or the box entitled "Special Delivery Instructions" on the Letter of Transmittal or (ii) if such Shares are tendered for the account of an Eligible Institution. See Instructions 1 and 5 of the Letter of Transmittal. If the certificates for Shares are registered in the name of a person other than the signer of the Letter of Transmittal, or if payment is to be made or certificates for Shares not tendered or not accepted for payment are to be returned to a person other than the registered owner of the certificates surrendered, then the tendered certificates must be registered or accompanied by appropriate stock powers, in either case, signed exactly as the name or names of the registered owner(s) or holder(s) appear on the certificates, with the signatures on the certificates or stock powers guaranteed as described above. See Instructions 1 and 5 of the Letter of Transmittal.

        If certificates representing Shares are forwarded separately to the Depositary, a properly completed and duly executed Letter of Transmittal must accompany each delivery of certificates.

        Guaranteed Delivery.    A stockholder who desires to tender Shares pursuant to the Offer and whose certificates for Shares are not immediately available and cannot be delivered to the Depositary

15


prior to the expiration of the Offer, or who cannot complete the procedure for book-entry transfer prior to the expiration of the Offer, or who cannot deliver all required documents to the Depositary prior to the expiration of the Offer, may tender such Shares by satisfying all of the requirements set forth below:

        The Notice of Guaranteed Delivery may be delivered or transmitted by overnight courier, mail or email to the Depositary and must include a guarantee by an Eligible Institution in the form set forth in such Notice of Guaranteed Delivery. Shares tendered by a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery will not be deemed validly tendered for purposes of satisfying the Minimum Tender Condition unless and until Shares underlying such Notice of Guaranteed Delivery are delivered to the Depositary prior to the expiration of the Offer.

        THE METHOD OF DELIVERY OF SHARES, THE LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL AND ALL OTHER REQUIRED DOCUMENTS, INCLUDING DELIVERY THROUGH DTC, IS AT THE ELECTION AND RISK OF THE TENDERING STOCKHOLDER. DELIVERY OF ALL SUCH DOCUMENTS WILL BE DEEMED MADE ONLY WHEN ACTUALLY RECEIVED BY THE DEPOSITARY (INCLUDING, IN THE CASE OF A BOOK-ENTRY TRANSFER, BY BOOK-ENTRY CONFIRMATION). IF SUCH DELIVERY IS BY MAIL, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT ALL SUCH DOCUMENTS BE SENT BY PROPERLY INSURED REGISTERED MAIL WITH RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED. IN ALL CASES, SUFFICIENT TIME SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO ENSURE TIMELY DELIVERY.

        Other Requirements.    Notwithstanding any provision of the Merger Agreement, Purchaser will pay for Shares tendered (and not validly withdrawn) pursuant to the Offer only after timely receipt by the Depositary of (i) certificates for (or a timely Book-Entry Confirmation with respect to) such Shares, (ii) a Letter of Transmittal, properly completed and duly executed, with any required signature guarantees (or, in the case of a book-entry transfer, an Agent's Message in lieu of the Letter of Transmittal), and (iii) any other documents required by the Letter of Transmittal or any other customary documents required by the Depositary. Accordingly, tendering stockholders may be paid at different times depending upon when certificates for Shares or Book-Entry Confirmations with respect to Shares are actually received by the Depositary. Under no circumstances will Purchaser pay interest on the purchase price of Shares, regardless of any extension of the Offer or any delay in making such payment. If your Shares are held in street name (i.e., through a broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee), your Shares can be tendered by your nominee by book-entry transfer through the Depositary. If you are unable to deliver any required document or instrument to the Depositary by the expiration of the Offer, you may gain some extra time by having a broker, a bank or other fiduciary that is an eligible guarantor institution guarantee that the missing items will be received by the Depositary by using the enclosed Notice of Guaranteed Delivery. For the tender to be valid, however, the Depositary must receive the missing items together with the Shares within two NYSE trading days after the date of execution of the Notice of Guaranteed Delivery.

16


        Binding Agreement.    Purchaser's acceptance for payment of Shares tendered pursuant to one of the procedures described above will constitute a binding agreement between the tendering stockholder and Purchaser upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Offer.

        Appointment as Proxy.    By executing and delivering a Letter of Transmittal as set forth above (or, in the case of a book-entry transfer, by delivery of an Agent's Message in lieu of a Letter of Transmittal), the tendering stockholder irrevocably appoints Purchaser's designees as such stockholder's proxies, each with full power of substitution, to the full extent of such stockholder's rights with respect to the Shares tendered by such stockholder and accepted for payment by Purchaser and with respect to any and all other Shares or other securities issued or issuable in respect of such Shares on or after the date of the Merger Agreement. All such proxies and powers of attorney will be considered coupled with an interest in the tendered Shares. Such appointment is effective when, and only to the extent that, Purchaser accepts for payment Shares tendered by such stockholder as provided herein. Upon the effectiveness of such appointment, all prior powers of attorney, proxies and consents given by such stockholder will be revoked, and no subsequent powers of attorney, proxies and consents may be given (and, if given, will not be deemed effective). Purchaser's designees will, with respect to the Shares or other securities and rights for which the appointment is effective, be empowered to exercise all voting and other rights of such stockholder as they, in their sole discretion, may deem proper at any annual, special, adjourned or postponed meeting of the stockholders of Care.com, by written consent in lieu of any such meeting or otherwise. Purchaser reserves the right to require that, in order for Shares to be deemed validly tendered, immediately upon Purchaser's payment for such Shares Purchaser must be able to exercise full voting, consent and other rights to the extent permitted under applicable law with respect to such Shares and other securities, including voting at any meeting of stockholders or executing a written consent concerning any matter.

        Determination of Validity.    All questions as to the validity, form, eligibility (including time of receipt) and acceptance of any tender of Shares will be determined by Purchaser in Purchaser's sole and absolute discretion, which determination will be final and binding, subject to the rights of the tendering holders of Shares to challenge Purchaser's determination in a court of competent jurisdiction. Purchaser reserves the absolute right to reject any and all tenders determined by Purchaser not to be in proper form or the acceptance for payment of or payment for which may, in Purchaser's opinion, be unlawful. Purchaser also reserves the absolute right to waive any defect or irregularity in the tender of any Shares of any particular stockholder whether or not similar defects or irregularities are waived in the case of any other stockholder. No tender of Shares will be deemed to have been validly made until all defects and irregularities relating thereto have been cured or waived. None of Parent, Purchaser or any of their respective affiliates or assigns, the Depositary, the Information Agent, or any other person will be under any duty to give notification of any defects or irregularities in tenders or incur any liability for failure to give any such notification. Purchaser's interpretation of the terms and conditions of the Offer (including the Letter of Transmittal and the Instructions thereto and any other documents related to the Offer) will be final and binding, subject to the rights of the tendering holders of Shares to challenge Purchaser's determination in a court of competent jurisdiction.

        Backup Withholding.    Under current U.S. federal income tax law, a stockholder who tenders Shares that are accepted for exchange or whose Shares are converted into the right to receive cash in the Merger may be subject to backup withholding. To avoid such backup withholding, a stockholder that is a "U.S. person" (as defined in the instructions to the IRS Form W-9 provided with the Letter of Transmittal) who surrenders Shares for cash pursuant to the Offer or whose Shares are converted into the right to receive cash in the Merger must, unless an exemption applies, provide the Depositary with such stockholder's correct taxpayer identification number ("TIN") on an IRS Form W-9, certify under penalties of perjury that such TIN is correct and provide certain other certifications. If a stockholder does not provide such stockholder's correct TIN or fails to provide the required certifications, the IRS may impose penalties on such stockholder, and the gross proceeds payable to such stockholder

17


pursuant to the Offer or the Merger may be subject to backup withholding. All stockholders that are U.S. persons surrendering Shares pursuant to the Offer or whose Shares are converted into the right to receive cash in the Merger should complete and sign the IRS Form W-9 included as part of the Letter of Transmittal to provide the information and certifications required to avoid backup withholding (unless an applicable exemption exists and is established in a manner satisfactory to the Depositary).

        Certain stockholders (including, among others, all corporations and certain foreign individuals and entities) are not subject to backup withholding. Foreign stockholders should complete and sign an IRS Form W-8BEN, IRS Form W-8BEN-E, or other appropriate IRS Form W-8 (instead of an IRS Form W-9) to avoid backup withholding. An appropriate IRS Form W-8 may be obtained from the Depositary or at the IRS website (www.irs.gov). See Instruction 8 to the Letter of Transmittal.

4.     Withdrawal Rights.

        Except as otherwise provided in this Section 4, tenders of Shares pursuant to the Offer are irrevocable. However, a stockholder has withdrawal rights that are exercisable until the expiration of the Offer (i.e., at any time prior to one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on February 10, 2020), or in the event the Offer is extended, on such date and time to which the Offer is extended. In addition, Shares may be withdrawn at any time after March 12, 2020, which is the 60th day after the date of the commencement of the Offer, unless prior to that date Purchaser has accepted for payment the Shares validly tendered in the Offer.

        For a withdrawal of Shares to be effective, a written transmission notice of withdrawal must be timely received by the Depositary at one of its addresses set forth on the back cover of this Offer to Purchase. Any notice of withdrawal must specify the name of the person having tendered the Shares to be withdrawn, the number of Shares to be withdrawn and the name of the record holder of the Shares to be withdrawn, if different from that of the person who tendered such Shares. The signature(s) on the notice of withdrawal must be guaranteed by an Eligible Institution, unless such Shares have been tendered for the account of any Eligible Institution. If Shares have been tendered pursuant to the procedures for book-entry transfer as set forth in Section 3—"Procedures for Tendering Shares," any notice of withdrawal must specify the name and number of the account at DTC to be credited with the withdrawn Shares. If certificates representing the Shares have been delivered or otherwise identified to the Depositary, the name of the registered owner and the serial numbers shown on such certificates must also be furnished to the Depositary prior to the physical release of such certificates.

        All questions as to the form and validity (including time of receipt) of any notice of withdrawal will be determined by Purchaser, in Purchaser's sole discretion, which determination will be final and binding, subject to the rights of the tendering holders of Shares to challenge Purchaser's determination in a court of competent jurisdiction. No withdrawal of Shares will be deemed to have been properly made until all defects and irregularities have been cured or waived. None of Parent, Purchaser or any of their respective affiliates or assigns, the Depositary, the Information Agent, or any other person will be under any duty to give notification of any defects or irregularities in any notice of withdrawal or incur any liability for failure to give such notification. Withdrawals of tenders of Shares may not be rescinded, and any Shares properly withdrawn will be deemed not to have been validly tendered for purposes of the Offer. However, withdrawn Shares may be re-tendered by following one of the procedures for tendering Shares described in Section 3—"Procedures for Tendering Shares" at any time prior to the expiration of the Offer.

        If Purchaser extends the Offer, delays its acceptance for payment of Shares, or is unable to accept for payment Shares pursuant to the Offer, for any reason, then, without prejudice to Purchaser's rights under the Offer, the Depositary may nevertheless, on Purchaser's behalf, retain tendered Shares, and such Shares may not be withdrawn except to the extent that tendering stockholders exercise withdrawal rights as described in this Section 4.

5.     U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Offer and the Merger.

        The following summary describes the U.S. federal income tax consequences generally applicable to stockholders whose Shares are tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer or whose Shares are converted into the right to receive cash in the Merger. This summary is based on the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), Treasury Regulations promulgated under the Code, published rulings, administrative pronouncements, and judicial decisions, all as in effect on the date hereof and all of which are subject to change or differing interpretations, possibly with retroactive effect. This summary addresses only stockholders who hold their Shares as capital assets within the meaning of Section 1221 of the Code (generally property held for investment) and does not address all of the tax consequences that may be relevant to stockholders in light of their particular circumstances or to certain types of stockholders subject to special treatment under the Code, including pass-through entities (including partnerships and S corporations for U.S. federal income tax purposes) and investors in such entities, certain financial institutions, brokers, dealers or traders in securities, insurance companies, expatriates, mutual funds, real estate investment trusts, cooperatives, tax-exempt organizations, persons who are subject to the alternative minimum tax, persons who hold their Shares as part of a straddle, hedge, conversion, constructive sale, synthetic security, integrated investment, or other risk-reduction transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes, stockholders that have a functional currency other than the U.S. dollar, and persons who acquired their Shares upon the exercise of stock options or otherwise as compensation. This summary does not address any U.S. federal estate, gift, or other non-income tax consequences, the effects of the Medicare contribution tax on net investment income, or any state, local, or foreign tax consequences.

        For purposes of this discussion, a "U.S. Holder" is a beneficial owner of Shares that, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, is (i) an individual who is a citizen or resident, (ii) a corporation, or other entity treated as a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes, that is created or organized in or under the laws of the United States or any State or the District of Columbia, (iii) an estate, the income of which is subject to U.S. federal income taxation regardless of its source, or (iv) a trust if it (A) is subject to the primary supervision of a court within the United States and one or more U.S. persons have the authority to control all substantial decisions of the trust or (B) has a valid election in effect under applicable Treasury Regulations to be treated as a U.S. person. For purposes of this summary, a "Non-U.S. Holder" means a beneficial owner of Shares that is neither a U.S. Holder nor a partnership (or any other entity or arrangement treated as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes).

        If a partnership (including any entity or arrangement treated as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes) exchanges Shares for cash pursuant to the Offer or the Merger, the tax treatment of a partner in the partnership will generally depend upon the status of the partner and the activities of the partnership. A partner in a partnership holding Shares should consult its tax advisor regarding the tax consequences of exchanging Shares for cash pursuant to the Offer or the Merger.

        Stockholders are urged to consult their tax advisors to determine the tax consequences to them of exchanging Shares for cash pursuant to the Offer or the Merger in light of their particular circumstances.

U.S. Holders

        The exchange of Shares for cash pursuant to the Offer or the Merger will be a taxable transaction to U.S. Holders for U.S. federal income tax purposes. In general, a U.S. Holder who exchanges Shares for cash pursuant to the Offer or the Merger will recognize capital gain or loss in an amount equal to the difference, if any, between the amount of cash received and the U.S. Holder's adjusted tax basis in the Shares exchanged. Such gain or loss will generally be long-term capital gain or loss if, as of the date of the exchange, a U.S. Holder's holding period in the Shares exchanged is more than one year.

19


        Long-term capital gain recognized by individuals and certain other non-corporate U.S. Holders is currently subject to tax at preferential rates. The deductibility of capital losses is subject to limitations under the Code.

        If a U.S. Holder acquired different blocks of Shares at different times or at different prices, such U.S. Holder generally must determine its adjusted tax basis and holding period separately with respect to each such block of Shares.

Non-U.S. Holders

        Subject to the discussion below regarding backup withholding, a Non-U.S. Holder will not be subject to U.S. federal income tax on gain recognized on Shares sold pursuant to the Offer or converted into the right to receive cash in the Merger unless:

        A Non-U.S. Holder generally will be exempt from information reporting and backup withholding if it certifies on an appropriate IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E (or other appropriate IRS Form W-8) that it is not a United States person, or otherwise establishes an exemption in a manner satisfactory to the Depositary or other payor.

        Backup withholding is not an additional tax and any amounts withheld under the backup withholding rules may be refunded or credited against Non-U.S. Holder's U.S. federal income tax liability provided certain information is timely provided to the IRS. Each stockholder should consult with its tax advisor as to its qualification for exemption from backup withholding and the procedure for obtaining such exemption.

6.     Price Range of Shares; Dividends.

        The Common Shares are traded on the NYSE under the symbol "CRCM." Care.com has advised Parent and Purchaser that, as of January 9, 2020, 33,288,814 Common Shares (excluding treasury shares) and 46,350 Preferred Shares were issued and outstanding. The following table sets forth, for the fiscal quarters indicated, the high and low sales prices per Common Share on the NYSE, as reported in

  $ 15.15   $ 14.93  

        On December 19, 2019, the trading day before the public announcement of the execution of the Merger Agreement, the reported closing sale price of the Common Shares on the NYSE was $13.25. Between December 20, 2019, the first full trading day after the public announcement of the Merger Agreement, and January 10, 2020, the reported closing sale price per Common Share on the NYSE ranged between $15.12 and $14.93. On January 10, 2020, the last full trading day prior to the commencement of the Offer, the reported closing sale price per Common Share on the NYSE during normal trading hours was $14.98 per Common Share.

        The Preferred Shares are not publicly traded and there is no market for the Preferred Shares.

        Care.com has not paid cash dividends on its Common Shares since its inception. In Care.com's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 29, 2018, Care.com indicated that while its board of directors did not presently intend to pay cash dividends on the Common Shares, any determination to do so in the future would be at their discretion. Holders of the Preferred Shares are entitled to a cumulative dividend at a rate of 5.50% per annum, payable in kind and semi-annually in arrears. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Care.com is not permitted to declare, set aside, make or pay any dividends or other distributions (whether payable in cash, stock, property or a combination thereof) with respect to any of its capital stock or other equity interests, except for any dividends on Preferred Shares pursuant to Section 4(b) of the Certificate of Designations. See Section 14—"Dividends and Distributions." Stockholders are urged to obtain a current market quotation for the Shares.

7.     Certain Effects of the Offer.

        Market for the Shares.    If the Offer is successful, there will be no market for the Common Shares because Purchaser intends to consummate the Merger on the same business day as the Acceptance Time and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement. Currently, there is no established trading market for the Preferred Shares.

        Stock Quotation.    The Common Shares are currently listed on the NYSE. Immediately following the consummation of the Merger (which will occur on the same business day as the Acceptance Time), the Shares will no longer meet the requirements for continued listing on the NYSE because the only stockholder will be Purchaser. Immediately following the consummation of the Merger, we intend and will cause Care.com to delist the Common Shares from the NYSE.

21


        Margin Regulations.    The Common Shares are currently "margin securities" under the Regulations of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (which we refer to as the "Federal Reserve Board"), which has the effect, among other things, of allowing brokers to extend credit on the collateral of the Common Shares. Depending upon factors similar to those described above regarding the market for the Common Shares and stock quotations, it is possible that, following the Offer, the Common Shares would no longer constitute "margin securities" for the purposes of the margin regulations of the Federal Reserve Board and, therefore, could no longer be used as collateral for loans made by brokers.

        Exchange Act Registration.    The Common Shares are currently registered under the Exchange Act. Such registration may be terminated upon application of Care.com to the SEC if the Common Shares are neither listed on a national securities exchange nor held by 300 or more holders of record. Termination of registration of the Common Shares under the Exchange Act would substantially reduce the information required to be furnished by Care.com to its stockholders and to the SEC and would make certain provisions of the Exchange Act no longer applicable to Care.com, such as the short-swing profit recovery provisions of Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act, the requirement of furnishing a proxy statement pursuant to Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act in connection with stockholders' meetings and the related requirement of furnishing an annual report to stockholders and the requirements of Rule 13e-3 under the Exchange Act with respect to "going private" transactions. Furthermore, the ability of "affiliates" of Care.com and persons holding "restricted securities" of Care.com to dispose of such securities pursuant to Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, may be impaired or eliminated. Parent intends and will cause Care.com to terminate the registration of the Common Shares under the Exchange Act as soon after consummation of the Merger as the requirements for termination of registration are met.

        The board of directors of Parent and Parent's executive management regularly evaluate various strategies to improve Parent's competitive position and enhance value for Parent stockholders, including opportunities for acquisitions of other companies or their assets. Parent also meets with potential partners and acquisition targets as applicable to understand these companies' businesses and evaluate potential opportunities.

24


        During the summer of 2017, Care.com and its advisors made confidential outreach to Parent to assess whether it would be interested in exploring potential strategic transactions with the Company. However, Parent did not submit a proposal to acquire the Company at that time.

        In early October, 2019, Morgan Stanley contacted Glenn H. Schiffman, the Chief Financial Officer of Parent, to solicit Parent's interest in participating in a process to evaluate potential transactions of the Company. Parent expressed interest in evaluating a potential transaction with the Company.

        On October 3, 2019, Morgan Stanley, the Company's financial advisor, sent Parent a draft of Care.com's form confidentiality agreement, including a customary standstill provision and related "sunset" provision to facilitate further discussions on the basis of confidential information. Parent responded with comments to the form confidentiality agreement on October 4, 2019. Following negotiation, Parent and Care.com entered into the confidentiality agreement on October 14, 2019.

        On October 21, 2019, a virtual data room containing confidential information of Care.com was made available to Parent to help Parent evaluate Care.com.

        On October 22, 2019, Ms. Marcelo and other members of Care.com senior management held an in-person management presentation with members of Parent's senior management team at Parent's New York offices.

        On October 25, 2019, at the direction of Care.com, Morgan Stanley sent a bid instruction letter to Parent, requesting that Parent provide a non-binding indication of interest by November 11, 2019.

        On November 12, 2019, Parent submitted to Care.com a non-binding proposal, in which Parent expressed an interest in acquiring Care.com for $12.00 per share, payable either in cash or freely tradeable shares of IAC (or a combination thereof). Parent's proposal indicated that the transaction was not conditional on financing but was subject to completion of due diligence, among other matters.

        On November 16, 2019, representatives of Morgan Stanley indicated to Parent that it would have to meaningfully improve its $12.00 price per share non-binding proposal to reflect a control premium to the then- current share price.

        On November 18, 2019, Parent confirmed to representatives of Morgan Stanley that, subject to additional diligence and analysis, it would be able to increase its $12.00 price per share proposal in order to reach a control premium to the then current share price of Care.com, and was allowed to proceed in the process as discussed with the Board.

        During the second half of November and into December 2019, Care.com's senior management and advisors continued to respond to diligence requests from Parent.

        On November 24, 2019, Parent and Care.com executed an amendment to their confidentiality agreement to allow for ANGI Homeservices, Inc. and its subsidiaries to be covered under the agreement.

        On November 25, 2019, Morgan Stanley sent to Parent an initial draft of the form merger agreement prepared by Latham & Watkins LLP ("Latham"), counsel to Care.com.

        On December 2, 2019, Morgan Stanley reached out to Parent and requested that any proposed comments to the form merger agreement be submitted to Latham by no later than December 9, 2019.

        On that same day, Ms. Marcelo and senior management of Care.com met with members of Parent's senior management team at Latham's New York office to engage in in-person diligence discussions.

        On December 4, 2019, Morgan Stanley sent a revised bid instruction letter to Parent, asking Parent to submit its final binding proposal by no later than December 16, 2019. The bid instruction letter

25


indicated that Parent's proposal should provide a specific price per share and, if subject to external financing, should include customary executed debt and equity commitment letters.

        On December 11, 2019, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP ("Skadden"), counsel to Parent, sent to Latham an issues list to the form merger agreement. The issues list addressed, among other things, Parent's proposal to structure the transaction as a two-step merger, a request for certain of Care.com's stockholders to execute support agreements, certain aspects of the fiduciary out provision and related termination rights and fees, including a request to increase the termination fee to 4% of equity value and to provide expense reimbursement upon the failure to obtain the requisite Care.com stockholder vote. Representatives of Latham and Skadden had a subsequent call on the morning of December 12, 2019, to discuss the issues list and related terms and conditions of the form merger agreement.

        On December 14, 2019, Skadden sent a revised draft of the form merger agreement to Latham. The comments in Skadden's draft of the merger agreement were consistent with the issues list previously circulated and discussed.

        On December 15, 2019, Parent called Morgan Stanley to provide an update on its process. Parent confirmed there was no financing condition to its proposal, and Parent would be in a position to sign a definitive agreement in a short period of time if the parties could come to agreeable terms. Morgan Stanley reiterated that Parent would need to provide an updated bid with a per share purchase price that reflected a control premium in order for Care.com to move forward with Parent in the final phase of bidding.

        On December 16, 2019, Parent submitted a revised proposal to Care.com, indicating Parent's willingness to acquire 100% of the outstanding equity of Care.com at a price of $13.00 per share in cash, which Parent noted was a 39% premium on Care.com's share price on August 14, 2019 (the day prior to the release of Engine Capital's letter urging the Company to explore a sale). The proposal indicated that the transaction was not conditioned on financing and that Parent would be willing to work expeditiously towards completing its diligence, negotiating definitive agreements and announcing a transaction.

        On December 17, 2019, Morgan Stanley contacted Parent to discuss its proposal, indicating that Parent's proposal was inadequate and would not provide a basis for the Company to move forward. Morgan Stanley indicated that the Company would likely move forward without Parent unless the revised offer was consistent with the feedback Morgan Stanley previously provided to Parent that the Care.com Board required a control premium to the share price as of the time of Parent's initial non-binding proposal. Also on December 17, 2019, Skadden provided a draft stockholder support agreement to Latham, which Parent requested be entered into by Ms. Marcelo, CapitalG LP ("CapitalG") and Tenzing Global Management LLC ("Tenzing") (and certain of their affiliates) concurrently with the public announcement of a proposed transaction.

        On December 18, 2019, Parent submitted its revised best and final offer pursuant to which it offered to acquire all outstanding Shares of Care.com for $15.00 per share in cash, provided that the parties executed definitive transaction documentation no later than December 20, 2019. Parent's offer was not subject to any financing condition.

        On December 19, 2019, Care.com informed Parent that it wished to engage in further discussions and negotiations with the goal of executing definitive transaction documents for Parent to acquire all outstanding Shares of Care.com for $15.00 per Share.

26


        From December 19 to December 20, 2019, representatives of each of Parent and Care.com and their respective legal counsel continued to negotiate the final terms of the merger agreement. In addition, during this period of time, representatives of Ms. Marcelo, CapitalG and Tenzing worked to negotiate the terms of the support agreements with Parent and its advisors, reaching an agreement in the early morning of December 20, 2019.

        Also on December 20, 2019, Care.com, Parent and Purchaser executed and delivered the Merger Agreement. Tenzing, CapitalG and Ms. Marcelo also each executed and delivered a Support Agreement with Parent and Purchaser, pursuant to which they agreed to tender their shares in the Offer.

        Before the opening of trading on the NYSE on December 20, 2019, Parent and Care.com issued a joint press release announcing the execution of the Merger Agreement and the forthcoming commencement of a tender offer by Parent to acquire all the outstanding Shares of Care.com at a price of $15.00 per Share in cash.

        On January 13, 2020, Purchaser commenced the Offer and filed this Schedule TO-T.

11.   Purpose of the Offer and Plans for Care.com; Summary of the Merger Agreement and Certain Other Agreements.

Purpose of the Offer and Plans for Care.com.

        The purpose of the Offer and the Merger is for Parent, through Purchaser, to acquire control of, and the entire equity interest in, Care.com. Pursuant to the Merger, Parent will acquire all of the stock of the Company not purchased pursuant to the Offer or otherwise subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement. Stockholders of the Company who tender their Shares in the Offer will cease to have any equity interest in the Company or any right to participate in its earnings and future growth. If the Merger is consummated, non-tendering stockholders also will no longer have an equity interest in the Company. On the other hand, after tendering their Shares in the Offer or having their Shares cancelled in the subsequent Merger, stockholders of the Company will not bear the risk of any decrease in the value of the Company stock.

        If the Minimum Tender Condition is satisfied and Purchaser accepts Shares for payment pursuant to the Offer, the Merger will be consummated in accordance with Section 251(h) of the DGCL. See "Summary of the Merger Agreement—The Merger" below. If the Offer is consummated, Purchaser will not seek a vote of the remaining public stockholders of Care.com before effecting the Merger. Section 251(h) of the DGCL provides that following consummation of a successful tender offer for a public corporation (the shares of which are listed on a national securities exchange or held of record by more than 2,000 holders), and subject to certain statutory provisions, if the acquirer holds at least the amount of shares of each class of stock of the target corporation that would otherwise be required to approve a merger for the target corporation, and the other stockholders receive the same consideration for their stock in the merger as was payable in the tender offer, the acquirer can effect a merger without the vote of the other stockholders of the target corporation. Accordingly, if we consummate the Offer, Purchaser will effect the closing of the Merger without a vote of the stockholders of Care.com in accordance with Section 251(h) of the DGCL. At the Effective Time, the Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company will be amended and restated in its entirety in the form attached to the Merger Agreement, and, as so amended and restated, will be the certificate of incorporation of the Surviving Corporation until further amended. Also at the Effective Time, the Amended and Restated Bylaws of the Company will be amended and restated in their entirety in the form attached to the Merger Agreement, and, as so amended and restated, will be the bylaws of the Surviving Corporation until further amended. At the Effective Time, the directors of Purchaser will become the directors of the Surviving Corporation and the officers of the Company will become the officers of the Surviving Corporation, each until their respective successors are duly elected or appointed. See "Summary of the Merger Agreement—The Merger" below.

        If Purchaser accepts Shares for payment pursuant to the Offer, Parent will obtain control over Care.com. Parent and Purchaser are conducting a detailed review of Care.com and its assets, corporate structure, capitalization, operations, properties, policies, management and personnel, and considering what changes may be desirable in light of the circumstances that exist at Care.com. Following completion of the Offer, Parent will continue to evaluate the business and operations of Care.com, and will take such actions as Parent deems appropriate under the circumstances then existing. With a view to optimizing development of Care.com's potential, Purchaser's plans for Care.com may change based on further analysis including changes in the Company's business, corporate structure, certificate of incorporation, bylaws, capitalization, board of directors and management, although, except as disclosed in this Offer to Purchase, Parent and Purchaser have no current plans with respect to any of such matters.

        Except as disclosed in this Offer to Purchase, neither Parent nor Purchaser has any present plans or proposals that would result in an extraordinary corporate transaction involving the Company or any of its subsidiaries, such as a merger, reorganization, liquidation, relocation of operations, or sale or transfer of a material amount of assets, or any material changes in the Company's corporate structure or business.

Summary of the Merger Agreement.

        On December 20, 2019, Care.com, Parent and Purchaser entered into the Merger Agreement. The following summary of the material provisions of the Merger Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which is filed as Exhibits (d)(1) hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

        The Merger Agreement has been filed as an exhibit to the Offer to Purchase to provide stockholders with information regarding its terms. The assertions embodied in the representations and warranties contained in the Merger Agreement are qualified by information in confidential disclosure schedules delivered by Care.com to Parent (the "Company Disclosure Letter") in connection with the signing of the Merger Agreement. Moreover, certain representations and warranties in the Merger Agreement were made as of a specified date, may be subject to a contractual standard of materiality different from what might be viewed as material to stockholders, or may have been used for the purpose of allocating risk between the parties to the Merger Agreement. Accordingly, the representations and warranties in the Merger Agreement should not be relied on by any persons as characterizations of the actual state of facts and circumstances of Care.com at the time they were made and the information in the Merger Agreement should be considered in conjunction with the entirety of the factual disclosure about Care.com in Care.com's public reports filed with the SEC. Information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Merger Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in Care.com's public disclosures. The Merger Agreement should not be read alone, but should instead be read in conjunction with the other information regarding the Offer, the Merger, Care.com, Parent, Purchaser, their respective affiliates and their respective businesses that are contained in, or incorporated by reference into, the tender offer statement on Schedule TO and related exhibits, including the Offer to Purchase, and the Schedule 14D-9, as well as in Care.com's other public filings.

        The Offer.    The Merger Agreement provides that Purchaser will commence the Offer no later than January 13, 2020. Purchaser's obligation to accept for payment and pay for Shares validly tendered in the Offer is subject to the satisfaction of the Minimum Tender Condition and the other conditions to the Offer that are described in Section 13—"Conditions of the Offer." Subject to the satisfaction of the Minimum Tender Condition and the other conditions to the Offer that are described in Section 13—"Conditions of the Offer," the Merger Agreement provides that Purchaser shall, and Parent shall cause

28


Purchaser to, as soon as practicable after the Expiration Date, as it may be extended pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, accept and pay for all Shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer. The Offer will expire one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on February 10, 2020, unless we extend the Offer pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement.

        Parent and Purchaser expressly reserve the right to waive (to the extent permitted under applicable legal requirements) any condition to the Offer, to increase the amount of cash constituting the Offer Price, to make any other changes in the terms and conditions of the Offer that are not inconsistent with the terms of the Merger Agreement and to terminate the Offer if the conditions to the Offer are not satisfied and the Merger Agreement is terminated, except that Care.com's prior written approval is required for Parent or Purchaser to:

        The Merger Agreement contains provisions to govern the circumstances under which Purchaser is required to, and Parent is required to cause Purchaser to, extend the Offer. Specifically, the Merger Agreement provides that:

        However, Purchaser is not required to extend the Offer beyond the earlier to occur of the valid termination of the Merger Agreement in accordance with its terms and the Outside Date, which is June 20, 2020.

        Purchaser has agreed that it will (and Parent has agreed that it will cause Purchaser to) promptly, irrevocably and unconditionally terminate the Offer upon any termination of the Merger Agreement, and Purchaser will promptly return, and will cause any depository acting on behalf of Purchaser to return, all tendered Shares to the registered holders thereof.

        The Merger.    The Merger Agreement provides for the merger of Purchaser with and into the Company upon the terms, and subject to the conditions, of the Merger Agreement and in accordance

29


with Section 251(h) of the DGCL. As the Surviving Corporation, Care.com will continue to exist following the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. Upon consummation of the Merger, the directors of Purchaser immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger will be the initial directors of the Surviving Corporation and the officers of Care.com immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger will be the initial officers of the Surviving Corporation. At the effective time of the Merger, the Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company will be amended and restated in its entirety in the form attached to the Merger Agreement, and the Amended and Restated Bylaws of the Company will be amended and restated in their entirety in the form attached to the Merger Agreement, each until further amended as provided in accordance with their terms or in accordance with applicable law.

        The Merger will be effective at the time the certificate of merger (the "Certificate of Merger") is duly filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware or such later time as specified in the Certificate of Merger and agreed to by the Company, Parent and Purchaser in writing. Parent expects to complete the Merger after the Acceptance Time and the satisfaction or waiver of all other closing conditions. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties to the Merger Agreement, the parties are required to close the Merger on the same business day as the Acceptance Time, except if any of the conditions in Section 13 hereof (other than those conditions that by their nature are to be satisfied only at the closing, but subject to the satisfaction or waiver of those conditions at such time) has not been satisfied or waived by such date, in which case on no later than the first business day on which each of such conditions is satisfied. The conditions of the closing of the Merger are described below under the caption "Conditions to the Merger."

        The obligations of Parent and Purchaser to complete the Merger are subject to the satisfaction or waiver by each of the parties of the Minimum Tender Condition, the Competition Laws Condition, the Governmental Impediment Condition and the other conditions in Section 13 hereof.

        Board of Directors and Officers.    As of the Effective Time, the board of directors of Purchaser immediately prior to the Effective Time (or such other individuals designated by Parent) will become the directors of the Surviving Corporation and the officers of Care.com immediately prior to the Effective Time will continue as the officers of the Surviving Corporation.

        Conversion of Capital Stock at the Effective Time.    Common Shares outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than (i) Common Shares irrevocably accepted for payment in the Offer, (ii) Common Shares held by Care.com or any of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, (iii) Common Shares held by Parent, Purchaser or any other subsidiary of Parent and (iv) Common Shares held by the Company stockholders who properly demand and perfect appraisal rights under Delaware law) will be converted at the Effective Time into the right to receive $15.00 per Common Share and Preferred Shares outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than (i) Preferred Shares irrevocably accepted for payment in the Offer and (ii) Preferred Shares held by the Company stockholders who properly demand and perfect appraisal rights under Delaware law) will be converted at the Effective Time into the right to receive the Preferred Share Offer Price, in each case, net to the holder in cash, without interest, less any applicable withholding taxes (collectively, the "Merger Consideration").

        All outstanding shares of capital stock of Purchaser held immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be converted into and become (in the aggregate) 1,000 shares of newly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable shares of common stock of the Surviving Corporation and shall constitute the only outstanding capital of the Surviving Corporation.

        On or prior to the Effective Time, Parent will deposit or cause to be deposited with Computershare Trust Company, N.A. cash sufficient to pay the aggregate Merger Consideration payable upon surrender of the Shares.

30


        Treatment of Equity Awards.    Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, effective as of five business days prior to, and conditional upon the occurrence of, the Effective Time, each holder of any vested or unvested Company Option that qualifies as an incentive stock option within the meaning of Section 422(b) of the Code will be entitled to exercise such Company Option in full by providing Care.com with a notice of exercise and full payment of the applicable exercise price in accordance with and subject to the terms of the applicable Care Equity Plan and award agreement.

        At the Effective Time, each Company Option, whether vested or unvested, that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will automatically be cancelled and converted into the right to receive (without interest) an amount in cash, less applicable tax withholdings, equal to the product of (x) the total number of Common Shares underlying the Company Option, multiplied by (y) the excess, if any, of the Merger Consideration over the exercise price of such Company Option; provided that any Company Option with an exercise price that is equal to or greater than the Merger Consideration will be cancelled for no consideration.

        At the Effective Time, each award of Company Time-Based RSUs that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will become fully vested and will automatically be cancelled and converted into the right to receive (without interest) an amount in cash, less applicable tax withholdings, equal to (x) the total number of Common Shares underlying such award of Company Time-Based RSUs as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, multiplied by (y) the Merger Consideration.

        Each award of Company restricted stock units other than the Company Time-Based RSUs described above will be cancelled for no consideration prior to the Effective Time in accordance with its terms.

        The Surviving Corporation will, and Parent will cause the Surviving Corporation to, pay to the holders of Company Options and Company Time-Based RSUs the amounts described above, as applicable, as soon as practicable following the date the Merger is consummated, through the Surviving Corporation's payroll system (to the extent applicable); provided that, with respect to Company Time-Based RSUs, to the extent payment within such time or on such date would trigger a tax or penalty under Section 409A of the Code, such payments will be made on the earliest date that payment would not trigger such tax or penalty.

        Representations and Warranties.    In the Merger Agreement, Care.com has made representations and warranties to Parent and Purchaser with respect to, among other things:

31


        Some of the representations and warranties in the Merger Agreement made by Care.com are qualified as to "materiality" or "Company Material Adverse Effect." For purposes of the Merger Agreement, a "Company Material Adverse Effect" means any change, event, effect, circumstance, condition, occurrence or development that (x), individually or in the aggregate, has a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition or results of operations of the Company and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole or (y) would prevent or materially impairs or delays the consummation of the Merger or performance by the Company of any of its material obligations made under the Merger Agreement. The definition of "Company Material Adverse Effect" excludes the following from constituting or being taken into account in determining whether there has been, is or would reasonably be expected to be a Company Material Adverse Effect:

32


        However, the exceptions set forth in subclauses (i), (ii) and (iii) above will not apply to the extent that such Company Material Adverse Effect disproportionately impacts Care.com and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole, compared to other companies operating in the industry in which Care.com and its subsidiaries operate or participate.

        In the Merger Agreement, Parent and Purchaser have made representations and warranties to Care.com with respect to:

        Some of the representations and warranties in the Merger Agreement made by Parent and Purchaser are qualified as to "materiality" or "Parent Material Adverse Effect." For purposes of the Merger Agreement, "Parent Material Adverse Effect" means any change, event, development, condition, occurrence or effect that prevents or materially impairs or delays the consummation of the Merger or performance by Parent or Purchaser of any of their material obligations under the Merger Agreement.

        None of the representations and warranties of the parties to the Merger Agreement contained in the Merger Agreement or in any schedule, instrument or other document delivered pursuant to the Merger Agreement will survive the Effective Time.

        Access to Information.    Subject to certain limited exceptions, from the date of the Merger Agreement, Care.com will, and will cause its subsidiaries to, provide Parent, Purchaser and their respective directors, officers, employees, accountants, consultants, legal counsel, investment bankers, advisors, agents or other representatives (collectively, "Representatives") access at reasonable times upon prior written notice to the officers, employees, properties, books and records of Care.com and its subsidiaries and furnish promptly such information concerning the business, properties, contracts, assets and liabilities of the Company and each of its subsidiaries as Parent or its Representatives may reasonably request.

33


        Notice of Certain Events.    Care.com and Parent have agreed to promptly notify the other of (i) any notice or other communication received from any person alleging that the consent of such person is or may be required in connection with the Transactions; (ii) any notice or other communication from any governmental entity or the NYSE in connection with the Transactions or (iii) such party becoming aware of the occurrence of an event that could prevent or delay beyond the Outside Date the consummation of the Transactions or that would reasonably be expected to result in any of the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement not being satisfied.

        Conduct of Business Pending the Merger.    Care.com has agreed that, from the date of the Merger Agreement until the earlier of the Effective Time and the termination of the Merger Agreement pursuant to its terms, except as required by the Merger Agreement or as consented to in writing by Parent (which consent may not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) or as disclosed to Parent and Purchaser prior to the execution of the Merger Agreement in the Company Disclosure Letter, it will, and will cause each of its subsidiaries to use commercially reasonable efforts to, (i) conduct its operations only in the ordinary course of business in a manner consistent with past practice and (ii) keep available the services of the current officers, employees and consultants of the Company and each of its subsidiaries and to preserve the goodwill and current relationships of the Company and each of its subsidiaries with customers, suppliers and other persons with which the Company or any of its subsidiaries has business relations. In addition, Care.com and its subsidiaries will not, among other things and subject to specified exceptions (including ordinary course exceptions):

34


35


        Antitrust Laws.    Each of Parent, Purchaser and Care.com shall use reasonable best efforts to (i) obtain all consents, approvals or waivers from, or participation in other discussions or negotiations with, third parties, including under any contract to which the Company or Parent or any of their respective subsidiaries is party or by which such person or any of their respective properties or assets may be bound, (ii) obtain all necessary or advisable actions or nonactions, waivers, consents, approvals, orders and authorizations from governmental entities (including those in connection with any applicable supranational, national, federal, state, provincial or local law designed or intended to prohibit, restrict or regulate actions having the purpose or effect of monopolizing or restraining trade or lessening competition in any other country or jurisdiction, including the HSR Act, the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act, and the Federal Trade Commission Act, in each case, as amended and other similar competition or antitrust laws of any jurisdiction other than the United States ("Competition Laws")), make all necessary or advisable registrations, declarations and filings with and take all steps as may be necessary to obtain an approval or waiver from, or to avoid any proceeding by, any governmental entity (including in connection with applicable Competition Laws), (iii) submit promptly any additional information requested by any governmental entity that is required or advisable and respond as practicable to any inquiries or requests received from any governmental entity, (iv) resist, contest or defend any proceeding (including administrative or judicial proceedings) challenging the Offer, the Merger or the completion of the transactions contemplated in connection with the Merger Agreement, including seeking to have vacated, lifted, reversed or overturned any decree, judgment, injunction or other order (whether temporary, preliminary or permanent) that is in effect and that could restrict, prevent or prohibit consummation of the transactions, and (v) execute and deliver any additional instruments necessary to consummate the transactions and to fully carry out the purposes of the Merger Agreement.

36


        Without limiting the foregoing, Parent agrees to use its reasonable best efforts to take, or cause to be taken, any and all steps and to make, or cause to be made, any and all undertakings necessary to resolve, avoid or eliminate each and every impediment under any applicable Competition Law asserted by any governmental entity with respect to the Offer and the Merger so as to enable the closing of the Merger to occur as promptly as practicable, including (i) proposing, negotiating, committing to, and effecting, by consent decree, hold separate order, or otherwise, the sale, divestiture, licensing or disposition of any assets, properties or businesses of Parent or the Company or any of their respective subsidiaries or (ii) accepting any operational restrictions or otherwise taking or committing to take actions that limit Parent's or any Parent subsidiary's freedom of action with respect to, or its ability to retain, any of the assets, properties, licenses, rights, product lines, operations or businesses of Parent or the Company or any of their respective subsidiaries in each case, as may be required in order to avoid the entry of, or to effect the lifting or dissolution of, any injunction, temporary restraining order, or other order in any suit or proceeding, which would otherwise have the effect of preventing or delaying the closing of the Merger, as applicable. If such efforts fail to resolve, avoid or eliminate each and every impediment under any applicable Competition Law that may be asserted by any governmental entity with respect to the Offer and the Merger so as to enable the closing of the Merger to occur, then Parent shall use its best efforts to defend through litigation on the merits any claim asserted in court by any party in order to avoid entry of, or to have vacated or terminated, any order (whether temporary, preliminary or permanent) that would prevent the closing of the Merger from occurring as promptly as practicable. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of the Merger Agreement, none of Parent, the Company or any of their respective subsidiaries shall be required to agree to any sale, transfer, license, separate holding, divestiture or other disposition of, or to any prohibition of or any limitation on the acquisition, ownership, operation, effective control or exercise of full rights of ownership, or other modification of rights in respect of, any assets, properties or businesses of Parent or the Company or any of their respective subsidiaries that, in each case, is not conditioned on the consummation of the transactions.

        Neither Parent nor Purchaser shall directly or indirectly acquire or agree to acquire (by merging or consolidating with, or by purchasing a substantial portion of the assets of or equity in, or by any other manner), any person or portion thereof, or otherwise acquire or agree to acquire any assets, if the entering into a definitive agreement relating to, or the consummation of, such acquisition, merger or consolidation would reasonably be expected to (i) impose any material delay in the obtaining of, or materially increase the risk of not obtaining, any permits, orders or other approvals of any governmental entity necessary to consummate the transactions or the expiration or termination of any applicable waiting period, (ii) materially increase the risk of any governmental entity seeking an order prohibiting the consummation of the transactions, (iii) materially increase the risk of not being able to remove any such order on appeal or otherwise, or (iv) materially delay or prevent the consummation of the transactions.

        Employee Matters.    Parent has agreed that, during the period that each individual who is an employee of Care.com and its subsidiaries immediately prior to the Effective Time (each a "Continuing Employee") remains employed with the Surviving Corporation following the closing of the Merger, Parent will provide or cause one of its subsidiaries, including the Surviving Corporation, to provide to each Continuing Employee, (i) for the 12 month period following the date the Merger is consummated, base salary or wage rate, as applicable, and a target annual cash bonus opportunity that is not less than the base salary or wage rate, as applicable, and target annual cash bonus opportunity provided to such Continuing Employee immediately prior to the Effective Time and (ii) during the period commencing on the date the Merger is consummated and ending on December 31, 2020, other compensation and benefits (excluding equity and equity-based compensation, defined benefit pension and retiree welfare benefits) that are substantially comparable in the aggregate to the other compensation and benefits (excluding equity and equity-based compensation, defined benefit pension and retiree welfare benefits) provided to such Continuing Employee immediately prior to the Effective Time.

37


        From and after the Effective Time, Parent will, or will cause one of its subsidiaries, including the Surviving Corporation, to assume and honor each of Care.com's employment, severance, retention and termination plans, policies, programs, agreements and arrangements, in each case, as in effect at the Effective Time, including with respect to any payments, benefits or rights arising as a result of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement (either alone or in combination with any other event), in each case, which may be amended or terminated by Parent or the applicable subsidiary of Parent in accordance with the terms of the applicable plan, policy, program, agreement or arrangement; provided, however, that if within 12 months following the Effective Time, Parent or any of its subsidiaries discontinues Care.com's severance practices, then the Continuing Employees will be eligible for severance benefits that are substantially comparable to those provided to similarly situated employees of Parent and its subsidiaries.

        With respect to benefit plans maintained by Parent or any of its subsidiaries, including the Surviving Corporation (including any vacation, paid time-off and severance plans), Parent will, or will cause the applicable subsidiary of Parent to, use reasonable best efforts to cause, for all purposes, including determining eligibility to participate, level of benefits, vesting and benefit accruals, each Continuing Employee's service with Care.com or any of its subsidiaries, as reflected in Care.com's records, to be treated as service with Parent or any of its subsidiaries, including the Surviving Corporation, to the extent such service would have been recognized under the comparable Care.com benefit plan immediately prior to the Effective Time; provided, however, that such service need not be recognized to the extent that such recognition would result in any duplication of benefits and the foregoing service credit will not apply with respect to any defined benefit plan or retiree medical plan.

        Parent will, or will cause its subsidiaries (including the Surviving Corporation) to, use reasonable best efforts to waive, or cause to be waived, any pre-existing condition limitations, exclusions, evidence of insurability, actively-at-work requirements and waiting periods under any welfare benefit plan maintained by Parent or any of its subsidiaries in which Continuing Employees (and their eligible dependents) will be eligible to participate from and after the Effective Time, except to the extent that such pre-existing condition limitations, exclusions, actively-at-work requirements and waiting periods would not have been satisfied or waived under the comparable Care.com benefit plan immediately prior to the Effective Time. Parent will, or will cause its subsidiaries, including the Surviving Corporation, to use commercially reasonable efforts to recognize, or cause to be recognized, the dollar amount of all co-payments, deductibles and similar expenses incurred by each Continuing Employee (and his or her eligible dependents) during the calendar year in which the Effective Time occurs for purposes of satisfying such year's deductible and co-payment limitations under the relevant welfare benefit plans in which such Continuing Employee (and dependents) will be eligible to participate from and after the Effective Time.

        Directors' and Officers' Indemnification and Insurance.    Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Care.com's directors and executive officers will be entitled to certain indemnification rights and coverage under directors' and officers' liability insurance policies for a period of time following the Effective Time, as described below.

        From and after the Effective Time, Parent shall, and shall cause the Surviving Corporation to, indemnify, defend and hold harmless, and advance expenses as incurred, to the fullest extent permitted under (i) applicable law, (ii) Care.com's organization documents in effect as of the date of the Merger Agreement and (iii) any contract of Care.com or its subsidiaries in effect as of the date of the Merger Agreement, each present and former director and officer of Care.com and its subsidiaries and each of their respective employees who serves as a fiduciary of a Company benefit plan (in each case, when acting in such capacity, an "Indemnitee") against any costs or expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees), judgments, settlements, fines, losses, claims, damages, or liabilities incurred in connection with any proceeding or investigation, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, whenever asserted, arising out of or pertaining to matters existing or occurring at or prior to the Effective Time.

38


        In addition, Parent agrees that all rights to exculpation, indemnification and advancement of expenses arising from, relating to, or otherwise in respect of, acts or omissions occurring at or prior to the Effective Time existing as of the Effective Time in favor of an Indemnitee as provided in its organizational documents shall survive the Merger and shall continue in full force and effect in accordance with their terms. For a period of no less than six years from the Effective Time, Parent shall cause the Surviving Corporation to, and the Surviving Corporation shall, maintain in effect the exculpation, indemnification and advancement of expenses provisions of the applicable party's organizational documents in effect as of the date of the Merger Agreement or in any contract of Care.com or its subsidiaries with any of their respective directors, officers or employees in effect as of the date of the Merger Agreement, and shall not amend, repeal or otherwise modify any such provisions in any manner that would adversely affect the rights thereunder of any individuals who immediately before the Effective Time were current or former directors, officers or employees of Care.com or its subsidiaries.

        For six years from and after the Effective Time, Parent and the Surviving Corporation shall be jointly and severally responsible for maintaining for the benefit of the directors and officers of Care.com, as of the date of the Merger Agreement and as of the closing date, an insurance and indemnification policy that provides coverage for events occurring at or prior to the Effective Time (the "D&O Insurance") that is substantially equivalent to and in any event not less favorable in the aggregate than the existing policy of Care.com, or, if substantially equivalent insurance coverage is unavailable, the best available coverage; provided, however, that Parent and the Surviving Corporation shall not be required to pay an annual premium for the D&O Insurance in excess of 300% of the last annual premium paid by Care.com prior to the date of the Merger Agreement, it being understood that if the total premiums payable for such insurance coverage exceeds such amount, Parent shall obtain a policy with the greatest coverage available for a cost equal to such amount. The provisions of the immediately preceding sentence shall be deemed to have been satisfied if prepaid policies have been obtained by Care.com prior to the Effective Time, which policies provide such directors and officers with such coverage for an aggregate period of six years with respect to claims arising from facts or events that occurred on or before the Effective Time.

        Reasonable Best Efforts.    Each of Care.com, Purchaser and Parent has agreed to use reasonable best efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all actions necessary, proper or advisable under the Merger Agreement and applicable law to consummate and make effective the Offer, the Merger and the other Transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, as promptly as practicable.

        Stockholder Litigation.    Care.com will give Parent reasonable opportunity to participate, review or comment on all material filings or responses to be made by Care.com in the defense or settlement of any stockholder litigation against Care.com and/or its directors and officers relating to the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, including the Offer and the Merger and no such settlement of any stockholder litigation will be agreed to without Parent's prior written consent (which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).

        Section 16 Matters.    Prior to the Effective Time, Care.com will take such steps as may be reasonably required to cause dispositions of Care.com's equity securities (including derivative securities with respect to the Common Shares or Preferred Shares) resulting from the Transactions by each individual who is subject to reporting requirements of Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act with respect to Care.com, to be exempt under Rule 16b-3 promulgated under the Exchange Act.

        Stock Exchange Delisting and Deregistration.    The Surviving Corporation will cause Care.com's securities to be de-listed from NYSE and de-registered under the Exchange Act as promptly as practicable following the Effective Time, and prior to the Effective Time Care.com will reasonably cooperate with Parent to take such actions.

39


        No Solicitation.    Except as described below, Care.com will not, and will cause its subsidiaries not to, and Care.com will direct its representatives not to, directly or indirectly:

        Care.com will, and will cause each of its subsidiaries to, and Care.com shall direct the Representatives of Care.com and its subsidiaries to, promptly cease and terminate any discussion or negotiation heretofore conducted by Care.com, any of its subsidiaries or their respective representatives with any person (other than Parent and its affiliates) with respect to any Acquisition Proposal, or any proposal that would reasonably be expected to lead to an Acquisition Proposal and request any such person to promptly return or destroy all confidential information concerning the Company and its subsidiaries.

        Notwithstanding the above limitations, if after the date of the Merger Agreement and prior to the Acceptance Time (i) the Company receives a bona fide written Acquisition Proposal from a third party, (ii) such Acquisition Proposal did not result from a breach of the non-solicitation provisions of the Merger Agreement in any material respect by the Company and (iii) the Care.com Board (or a duly authorized committee thereof) determines in good faith, after consultation with its financial advisors and outside legal counsel, based on information then available, that such Acquisition Proposal constitutes or would reasonably be expected to lead to a Superior Proposal (defined below), then the Company may (A) provide information with respect to the Company and its subsidiaries to the third party making such Acquisition Proposal, its representatives and potential sources of financing pursuant to (but only pursuant to) one or more Acceptable Confidentiality Agreements and (B) participate in discussions or negotiations with the third party making such Acquisition Proposal regarding such Acquisition Proposal; provided, however, that any material non-public information concerning the Company or its subsidiaries provided or made available to any third party shall, to the extent not previously provided or made available to Parent or Purchaser, be provided or made available to Parent or Purchaser as promptly as reasonably practicable (and in no event later than 24 hours) after it is provided or made available to such third party, except to the extent providing Parent or Purchaser with such information would violate any applicable law.

40


        From and after the date of the Merger Agreement, Care.com shall promptly (and in any event within 24 hours) notify Parent in the event that the Company receives any Acquisition Proposal. Care.com will notify Parent promptly (and in any event within 24 hours) of the identity of such person and provide to Parent a copy of such Acquisition Proposal (or, where no such copy is available, a reasonable description of such Acquisition Proposal). Without limiting the foregoing, Care.com will promptly (and in any event within 24 hours after such determination) advise Parent if the Company determines to begin providing information or to engage in discussions or negotiations concerning an Acquisition Proposal.

        For the purposes of the foregoing covenants and those contained under the remainder of this Section 11, please note the following definitions:

        "Acceptable Confidentiality Agreement" means a confidentiality agreement that contains confidentiality provisions that are no less favorable in the aggregate to the Company than those contained in the Confidentiality Agreement, dated October 14, 2019, as amended November 24, 2019, by and between the Company and Parent; provided that any such confidentiality agreement need not contain any standstill provision.

        "Acquisition Proposal" means any offer or proposal from a third party concerning (A) a merger, consolidation, share exchange, or other business combination or similar transaction involving the Company, (B) a sale, lease or other disposition by merger, consolidation, business combination, share exchange, joint venture or otherwise, directly or indirectly, of assets of the Company (including equity interests of any subsidiary of the Company) or its subsidiaries representing 15% or more of the consolidated assets of the Company and its subsidiaries, based on their fair market value as determined in good faith by the Care.com Board (or any duly authorized committee thereof), (C) an issuance (including by way of merger, consolidation, business combination or share exchange), directly or indirectly, of equity interests representing 15% or more of the voting power of the Company, or (D) any combination of the foregoing (in each case, other than the Offer and the Merger).

        "Intervening Event" means any event, change, effect, development, state of facts, condition or occurrence (including any acceleration or deceleration of existing changes or developments) that is material to the Company and its subsidiaries that (A) was not known nor reasonably foreseeable to the Care.com Board as of or prior to the date of the Merger Agreement, (B) is first occurring after the date of the Merger Agreement and (C) does not involve or relate to an Acquisition Proposal.

        "Superior Proposal" means a bona fide written Acquisition Proposal (except the references therein to "15%" shall be replaced by "50%") that the Care.com Board (or a duly authorized committee thereof) determines in good faith, after consultation with its financial advisors and outside legal counsel, taking into account all legal, financial and regulatory aspects of such Acquisition Proposal that the Care.com Board determines to be relevant thereto and such other factors as the Care.com Board (or any duly authorized committee thereof) considers in good faith to be appropriate (including the conditionality, timing and likelihood of consummation of such proposals), is more favorable from a financial point of view to the Company's stockholders than the Offer and the Merger.

        Nothing in the Merger Agreement shall prohibit Care.com from complying with Rules 14d-9, 14e-2 and Item 1012(a) of Regulation M-A promulgated under the Exchange Act, or from issuing a "stop, look and listen" statement pending disclosure of its position thereunder.

        Recommendation Change.    As described above, and subject to the provisions described below, the Care.com Board has determined to recommend that the Company's stockholders accept the Offer and tender their Shares to Purchaser in the Offer. The foregoing recommendation is referred to herein as the "Company Board Recommendation." The Care.com Board also agreed to include the Company Board Recommendation with respect to the Offer in the Schedule 14D-9 and has permitted Parent to refer to such recommendation in this Offer to Purchase and documents related to the Offer.

41


        Except as described below, prior to the Effective Time or the termination of the Merger Agreement pursuant to its terms, neither the Care.com Board nor any committee thereof may:

        Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Care.com or the Care.com Board receives, at any time prior to the Acceptance Time, a bona fide written Acquisition Proposal that did not result from a breach of the provisions summarized here, and Care.com's Board (or any authorized committee thereof) determines in good faith, after consultation with Care.com's outside legal and financial advisors, that such Acquisition Proposal constitutes a Superior Proposal, Care.com's Board may terminate the Merger Agreement to enter into a contract with respect to such Superior Proposal or make a Change of Board Recommendation, but only if:

        The Care.com Board (or a duly authorized committee thereof) may also make a Change of Board Recommendation in response to an Intervening Event if:

42


        Conditions to the Merger.    Each party's obligation to effect the Merger is subject to the satisfaction or waiver at or prior to the Effective Time of the following conditions:

        Termination.    The Merger Agreement may be terminated as follows:

43


        Effect of Termination.    In the event of termination of the Merger Agreement by either Care.com or Parent, the Merger Agreement shall become void and have no further force and effect (other than certain specified provisions of the Merger Agreement, including those described in "Care.com Termination Fee" below, each of which shall survive termination), and there shall be no liability or obligation on the part of Parent, Purchaser or the Company or their respective subsidiaries, officers, directors or representatives; provided that the foregoing shall not relieve any party from liabilities or damages incurred or suffered as a result of fraud or a willful and material breach by the Company, on the one hand, or Parent or Purchaser, on the other hand, of any of their respective representations, warranties, covenants or other agreements set forth in the Merger Agreement.

        Care.com Termination Fee.    Care.com has agreed to pay Parent a termination fee of $20,000,000 in cash (the "Termination Fee") if:

        and as a result of either (i) or (ii), the Merger Agreement is terminated.

44


        The Company has also agreed to pay the Company Termination Fee if:

and (i) after the date of the Merger Agreement and prior to the date of termination, an Acquisition Proposal has been publicly announced and not withdrawn prior to the date of termination and (ii) the Company enters into a definitive agreement with respect to such Acquisition Proposal or consummates any Acquisition Proposal within nine months after such termination. For purposes of this paragraph, the term "Acquisition Proposal" shall have the meaning assigned to such term above, except that the references to "15%" shall be deemed to be references to "50%."

        Parent's receipt of the Termination Fee (if received) from or on behalf of the Company shall be Parent's and Purchaser's sole and exclusive remedy (whether based in contract, tort or strict liability, by the enforcement of any assessment, by any legal or equitable proceeding, by virtue of any statute, regulation or applicable laws or otherwise) against the Company and its subsidiaries and any of their respective former, current or future direct or indirect equity holders, general or limited partners, controlling persons, stockholders, members, managers, directors, officers, employees, agents, affiliates or assignees for all losses and damages suffered as a result of the failure of the Merger or the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement to be consummated, for any breach or failure to perform hereunder or otherwise, and upon payment of such amount, no such person shall have any further liability or obligation relating to or arising out of the Merger Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby; provided that the foregoing shall not relieve the Company or its subsidiaries from liability for fraud.

        Specific Performance.    Parent, Purchaser and Care.com each agree that if any of the provisions of the Merger Agreement were not performed in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached, irreparable damage would occur, no adequate remedy at law would exist and damages would be difficult to determine, and accordingly, the parties shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of the Merger Agreement and to specific performance of the terms thereof, this being in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled at law or in equity.

        Offer Conditions.    The conditions to the Offer are described in Section 13—"Conditions of the Offer."

Summary of the Support Agreements

        Concurrently with entering into the Merger Agreement, Parent and Purchaser entered into separate Support Agreements, each dated as of December 20, 2019 (together, the "Support Agreements"), with each of (a) Sheila Lirio Marcelo, the Founder, Chairwoman of the Care.com Board and Chief Executive Officer of Care.com, and The Sheila L. Marcelo 2012 Family Trust; (b) CapitalG LP; and (c) Tenzing Global Management LLC and Tenzing Global Investors Fund I LP (each a "Supporting Stockholder"). The Supporting Stockholders collectively beneficially owned, in the aggregate, 4,100,500 Common Shares and 46,350 Preferred Shares, or all of the Preferred Shares and approximately 12% of all Common Shares outstanding as of January 9, 2020, which represented approximately 24% of the voting power represented by the outstanding Common Shares and Preferred Shares (voting on an as-converted basis in accordance with the Certificate of Designations for the Preferred Shares).

45


        The Support Agreements provide that, no later than ten business days after the commencement of the Offer, each Supporting Stockholder will tender in the Offer, and not withdraw, all outstanding Common Shares and/or Preferred Shares, as applicable, such Supporting Stockholder owns of record or beneficially (within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act")), as of the date of the Support Agreement or of which such Supporting Stockholder acquires record ownership or beneficial ownership (within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act) after such date (collectively such shares, the "Covered Company Shares").

        The Support Agreements terminate upon the earliest of (a) the termination of the Merger Agreement in accordance with its terms, (b) the delivery of written notice of termination by the Supporting Stockholders to Parent and Purchaser following any amendment, modification, change or waiver to any provision of the Merger Agreement that decreases the amount or changes the form of the Merger Consideration, (c) a Change of Board Recommendation in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement effected by the Care.com Board or any authorized committee thereof and (d) the Effective Time.

        During the period from December 20, 2019 until the termination of the Support Agreements as described in the previous paragraph, the Supporting Stockholders also agreed to vote their Shares against certain alternative corporate transactions (as more fully described in the Support Agreements).

        This summary and description of the Support Agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Support Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit (d)(2) hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

Summary of the Confidentiality Agreement

        On October 14, 2019, Parent and Care.com entered into a confidentiality agreement, which was amended on November 24, 2019 (as amended, the "Confidentiality Agreement"). Under the terms of the Confidentiality Agreement, Parent and Care.com agreed that, subject to certain exceptions, both parties would keep all information relating, directly or indirectly, to the disclosing party or its business (as defined in greater detail in the Confidentiality Agreement, the "Evaluation Material") confidential and would not disclose any Evaluation Material (except as permitted in accordance with the terms of the Confidentiality Agreement) and would not use any Evaluation Material other than in connection with the evaluation, negotiation and consummation of a possible transaction between Care.com and Parent.

        The Confidentiality Agreement contains a non-solicitation provision which, for a period of 12 months from the date of the Confidentiality Agreement, prohibits Parent and any of its controlled affiliates, who receive Evaluation Material and are acting on Parent's behalf from, directly or indirectly, soliciting to employ any of the officers or management-level employees of Care.com with whom Parent had personal contact during its evaluation of a possible transaction, without the prior written consent of Care.com. The Confidentiality Agreement also requires Parent and its affiliates that receive Evaluation Material to abide by customary standstill restrictions for a period of one year, which standstill restrictions automatically terminate prior to the expiration of the one year term in certain situations. The Confidentiality Agreement terminates on October 14, 2021, but each party's obligation with respect to any Evaluation Material retained will survive the termination of the Confidentiality Agreement.

        This summary and description of the Confidentiality Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Confidentiality Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit (d)(3) hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

12.   Source and Amount of Funds.

        The Offer is not subject to a financing condition. Parent and Purchaser currently have, and will have, available to them, through a variety of sources, including cash on hand, funds necessary for the

46


payment of the aggregate Offer Price and the aggregate Merger Consideration and to satisfy all of their payment obligations under the Merger Agreement and resulting from the transactions contemplated thereby. Parent has not entered into any financing commitment in connection with the Merger Agreement or the transactions contemplated thereby.

13.   Conditions of the Offer.

        The obligation of Purchaser to accept for payment and pay for Shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer is subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in clauses (a) through (c) below. Notwithstanding any other provisions of the Offer or the Merger Agreement to the contrary and subject to any applicable rules and regulations of the SEC including Rule 14e-1(c) of the Exchange Act, Purchaser is not required to accept for payment or pay for, any tendered Shares if:

47


        The foregoing conditions are for the benefit of the Parent and Purchaser and may be waived by the Parent or Purchaser in whole or in part at any time or from time to time prior to the Expiration Date (except that the Minimum Tender Condition may not be waived), in each case, subject to the terms of the Merger Agreement and applicable laws, including the applicable rules and regulations of the SEC. The foregoing conditions shall be in addition to, and not a limitation of, the rights and obligations of Purchaser to extend, terminate, amend and/or modify the Offer in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement and the applicable rules and regulations of the SEC. The failure by Parent or Purchaser at any time to exercise any of the foregoing rights shall not be deemed a waiver of any such right and each such right shall be deemed an ongoing right that may be asserted at any time and from time to time.

14.   Dividends and Distributions.

        Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Care.com is not permitted to declare, set aside, make or pay any dividends or other distributions (whether payable in cash, stock, property or a combination thereof) with respect to any of its capital stock or other equity interests, except for any dividends on Preferred Shares pursuant to Section 4(b) of the Certificate of Designations. See Section 11—"Purpose of the Offer and Plans for Care.com; Summary of the Merger Agreement and Certain Other Agreements—Summary of the Merger Agreement—Conduct of Business Pending the Merger."

15.   Certain Legal Matters; Regulatory Approvals.

        General.    Except as otherwise set forth in this Offer to Purchase, based on Parent's and Purchaser's review of publicly available filings by Care.com with the SEC and other information regarding Care.com, Parent and Purchaser are not aware of any licenses or other regulatory permits which appear to be material to the business of Care.com and which might be adversely affected by the acquisition of Shares by Purchaser or Parent pursuant to the Offer or of any approval or other action by any governmental, administrative or regulatory agency or authority which would be required for the acquisition or ownership of Shares by Purchaser or Parent pursuant to the Offer. In addition, except as set forth below, Parent and Purchaser are not aware of any filings, approvals or other actions by or with any governmental body or administrative or regulatory agency that would be required for Parent's and Purchaser's acquisition or ownership of the Shares. Should any such approval or other action be required, Parent and Purchaser currently expect that such approval or action, except as described below under "State Takeover Laws," would be sought or taken. There can be no assurance that any such approval or action, if needed, would be obtained or, if obtained, that it will be obtained without substantial conditions; and there can be no assurance that, in the event that such approvals were not obtained or such other actions were not taken, adverse consequences might not result to Care.com's or Parent's business or that certain parts of Care.com's or Parent's business might not have to be disposed of or held separate. In such an event, we may not be required to purchase any Shares in the Offer. See Section 13—"Conditions of the Offer."

48


        Antitrust.    Under the Competition Laws, certain transactions may not be consummated until certain information and documentary materials have been furnished for review, certain waiting period requirements have been satisfied, and certain approvals have been obtained. These requirements apply to Parent by virtue of Purchaser's acquisition of the Shares in the Offer (and the Merger).

        Under the HSR Act, the purchase of Shares in the Offer may not be completed until the expiration of a 15-calendar-day waiting period following the filing of certain required information and documentary material concerning the Offer (and the Merger) with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (the "FTC") and the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (the "Antitrust Division"), unless the waiting period is earlier terminated by the FTC and the Antitrust Division. The parties agreed in the Merger Agreement to file such Premerger Notification and Report Forms under the HSR Act with the FTC and the Antitrust Division in connection with the purchase of Shares in the Offer and the Merger as promptly as practicable but in any event within ten business days following the execution and delivery of the Merger Agreement. The parties accordingly made the filings referenced in the foregoing sentence on January 8, 2020. The required waiting period will expire at 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on January 23, 2020 unless earlier terminated by the FTC and the Antitrust Division or Parent receives a request for additional information or documentary material ("Second Request") from either the FTC or the Antitrust Division prior to that time. If a Second Request is issued, the waiting period with respect to the Offer (and the Merger) would be extended for an additional period of ten calendar days following the date of Parent's substantial compliance with that request. If the ten day waiting period expires on a Saturday, Sunday or federal holiday, then the period is extended until 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, of the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday or federal holiday. Only one extension of the waiting period pursuant to a Second Request is authorized by the HSR Act rules. After that time, the waiting period could be extended only by court order or with Parent's consent. The FTC or the Antitrust Division may terminate the additional ten day waiting period before its expiration. Complying with a Second Request can take a significant period of time. Although Care.com is also required to file certain information and documentary material with the FTC and the Antitrust Division in connection with the Offer, neither Care.com's failure to make its filing nor failure to comply with its own Second Request in a timely manner will extend the waiting period with respect to the purchase of Shares in the Offer (and the Merger).

        The FTC and the Antitrust Division frequently scrutinize the legality under the U.S. antitrust laws of transactions, such as Purchaser's acquisition of Shares in the Offer (and the Merger). At any time before or after Purchaser's purchase of Shares in the Offer (and the Merger), the FTC or the Antitrust Division could take any action under the antitrust laws that it either considers necessary or desirable in the public interest, including seeking to enjoin the purchase of Shares in the Offer (and the Merger), the divestiture of Shares purchased in the Offer and Merger or the divestiture of substantial assets of Parent, Care.com or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. Private parties, as well as state attorneys general, also may bring legal actions under the antitrust laws under certain circumstances. See Section 13—"Conditions of the Offer."

        Under other Competition Laws, the purchase of Shares in the Offer may not be completed until approval has been obtained. The parties agreed to make the mandatory Premerger Notifications under the German and Austrian Competition Acts with the German and the Austrian Federal Competition Authorities ("FCO" and "BWB," respectively) in connection with the purchase of Shares in the Offer and the Merger as promptly as practicable following the execution and delivery of the Merger Agreement.

        Under the Austrian Competition Act, an initial four weeks Phase I review period starts once the BWB receives a complete notification. The parties filed their complete notification on January 10, 2020. Within the Phase I period, the BWB or the Federal Cartel Prosecutor may file a request to the Federal Cartel Court for the opening of a Phase II investigation. If the 4-week period elapses without a Phase II request being filed, the merger is cleared in Phase I and closing is no longer barred. If a

49


Phase II request is filed, the Federal Cartel Court must issue its decision within 5 months from the date of receipt of the review request.

        Under the German Competition Act, the FCO has one month from receipt of a complete notification to adopt a Phase I decision. The parties filed their complete notification on January 10, 2020. The transaction is deemed approved if no decision is issued within the Phase I review period. If the FCO opens a Phase II investigation, the review period is extended with an additional 3 months, subject to possible suspension of the review period.

        Stockholder Approval Not Required.    On December 20, 2019, the Care.com Board (i) determined that the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, including the Offer and the Merger, are advisable, fair to and in the best interests of Care.com and its stockholders, (ii) approved, adopted and declared advisable the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, including the Offer and the Merger, (iii) determined that the Merger shall be effected as soon as practicable following the Acceptance Time without a vote of Care.com's stockholders pursuant to Section 251(h) of the DGCL, and (iv) recommended that Care.com's stockholders accept the Offer and tender their Common Shares or Preferred Shares, as applicable, to Purchaser in response to the Offer.

        If Purchaser acquires, pursuant to the Offer, a number of Common Shares and Preferred Shares that, considered together with all other Common Shares and Preferred Shares (if any) then owned by Parent equals at least a majority of the voting power represented by the Common Shares and Preferred Shares (voting on an as-converted basis in accordance with the Certificate of Designations for the Preferred Shares) that are then issued and outstanding, Purchaser will be able to effect the Merger after consummation of the Offer pursuant to Section 251(h) of the DGCL, without a vote by stockholder vote.

        State Takeover Laws.    A number of states (including Delaware, where Care.com is incorporated) have adopted takeover laws and regulations which purport, to varying degrees, to be applicable to attempts to acquire securities of corporations which are incorporated in such states or which have substantial assets, stockholders, principal executive offices or principal places of business therein.

        As a Delaware corporation, the Company is subject to Section 203 of the DGCL ("Section 203"). In general, Section 203 restricts an "interested stockholder" (including a person who beneficially owns or has the right to acquire 15% or more of a corporation's outstanding voting stock and the affiliates and associates of such person) from engaging in a "business combination" (defined to include mergers and certain other actions) with a Delaware corporation for three years following the time such person became an interested stockholder unless: (i) before such person became an interested stockholder, the board of directors of the corporation approved the transaction in which the interested stockholder became an interested stockholder or approved the business combination, (ii) upon consummation of the transaction that resulted in the interested stockholder becoming an interested stockholder, the interested stockholder owned at least 85% of the voting stock of the corporation outstanding at the time the transaction commenced (excluding for purposes of determining the number of shares of outstanding stock held by directors who are also officers and by employee stock plans that do not allow plan participants to determine confidentially whether to tender shares), or (iii) at or following the time at which such person became an interested stockholder, the business combination is (a) approved by the board of directors of the corporation and (b) authorized at a meeting of stockholders, and not by written consent, by the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 662/3% of the outstanding voting stock of the corporation not owned by the interested stockholder.

        In accordance with the provisions of Section 203, the Care.com Board has approved the Merger Agreement, the Support Agreements and the Transactions, including the Offer and the Merger, for purposes of Section 203, as a result of which the Merger Agreement and the Transactions are not and will not be subject to any restrictions under Section 203. Furthermore, neither Parent nor Purchaser is, nor at any time during the last three years has been, an "interested stockholder" of the Company as

50


defined in Section 203 of the DGCL. The foregoing description is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the provisions of Section 203.

        Parent is not aware of any other state anti-takeover laws or regulations that are applicable to the Transactions, including the Offer and the Merger, and have not attempted to comply with any state anti-takeover laws or regulations other than as described above.

        Appraisal Rights.    No appraisal rights are available in connection with the Offer. However, if the Offer is successful and the Merger is consummated, stockholders of Care.com who have not properly tendered their Shares in the Offer and have neither voted in favor of the Merger nor consented thereto in writing (and for which appraisal rights have not been waived) and who otherwise in all respects, properly exercise and perfect a demand for and are entitled to appraisal for such shares in accordance with Section 262 of the DGCL, will be entitled to have their Shares appraised by the Delaware Court of Chancery and to receive payment in cash of the "fair value" of their Shares immediately before the Effective Time in accordance with Section 262 of the DGCL.

        "Going Private" Transactions.    Rule 13e-3 under the Exchange Act is applicable to certain "going private" transactions and may under certain circumstances be applicable to the Merger. However, Rule 13e-3 will be inapplicable if (i) the Shares are deregistered under the Exchange Act prior to the Merger or another business combination or (ii) the Merger or other business combination is consummated within one year after the purchase of the Shares pursuant to the Offer and the amount paid per Share in the Merger or other business combination is at least equal to the amount paid per Share in the Offer. Neither Parent nor Purchaser believes that Rule 13e-3 will be applicable to the Merger.

        Legal Proceedings Relating to the Tender Offer.    None.

16.   Fees and Expenses.

        Parent has retained the Depositary and the Information Agent in connection with the Offer. The Depositary and the Information Agent will receive customary compensation, reimbursement for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses and indemnification against certain liabilities in connection with the Offer, including certain liabilities under the federal securities laws.

        As part of the services included in such retention, the Information Agent may contact holders of Shares by personal interview, mail, electronic mail, telephone, telex, telegraph and other methods of electronic communication and may request brokers, dealers, commercial banks, trust companies and other nominees to forward the Offer materials to beneficial holders of Shares.

        Except as set forth above, neither Parent nor Purchaser will pay any fees or commissions to any broker or dealer or other person for soliciting tenders of Shares pursuant to the Offer. Brokers, dealers, commercial banks and trust companies will upon request be reimbursed by us for customary mailing and handling expenses incurred by them in forwarding the offering material to their customers.

17.   Miscellaneous.

        The Offer is being made to all holders of the Shares. We are not aware of any jurisdiction in which the making of the Offer or the acceptance thereof would be prohibited by securities, "blue sky" or other valid laws of such jurisdiction. If we become aware of any U.S. state in which the making of the Offer or the acceptance of Shares pursuant thereto would not be in compliance with an administrative or judicial action taken pursuant to a U.S. state statute, we will make a good faith effort to comply with any such law. If, after such good faith effort, we cannot comply with any such law, the Offer will not be made to (nor will tenders be accepted from or on behalf of) the holders of Shares in such state. In any jurisdictions where applicable laws require the Offer to be made by a licensed broker

51


or dealer, the Offer shall be deemed to be made on behalf of Purchaser by one or more registered brokers or dealers licensed under the laws of such jurisdiction to be designated by Purchaser.

        Parent and Purchaser have filed with the SEC the Schedule TO (including exhibits) in accordance with the Exchange Act, furnishing certain additional information with respect to the Offer, and may file amendments thereto. The Schedule TO and any amendments thereto, including exhibits, may be examined and copies may be obtained from the SEC in the manner set forth in Section 8—"Certain Information Concerning Care.com" under "Available Information."

        The Offer does not constitute a solicitation of proxies for any meeting of Care.com's stockholders. Any solicitation of proxies which Purchaser or any of its affiliates might seek would be made only pursuant to separate proxy materials complying with the requirements of Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act.

        No person has been authorized to give any information or make any representation on behalf of Parent or Purchaser not contained in this Offer to Purchase or in the Letter of Transmittal and, if given or made, such information or representation must not be relied upon as having been authorized. No broker, dealer, bank, trust company, fiduciary or other person shall be deemed to be an agent of Purchaser, the Depositary or the Information Agent for the purpose of the Offer. Neither delivery of this Offer to Purchase nor any purchase pursuant to the Offer will, under any circumstances, create any implication that there has been no change in the affairs of Parent, Purchaser, Care.com or any of their respective subsidiaries since the date as of which information is furnished or the date of this Offer to Purchase.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

        The undersigned hereby tenders to Buzz Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Purchaser"), and a wholly-owned subsidiary of IAC/InterActiveCorp, a Delaware corporation ("Parent"), (i) the above-described shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the "Common Shares"), of Care.com, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Care.com"), at a price per Common Share of $15.00 (the "Common Share Offer Price") and/or (ii) the above-described shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the "Preferred Shares," and together with the Common Shares, the "Shares"), of Care.com, at (x) 150% of the Liquidation Preference per share, as specified in the Certificate of Designations for the Preferred Shares (the "Certificate of Designations"), plus (y) Accrued and Unpaid Dividends payable in respect of such Preferred Shares, as specified in the Certificate of Designations, in the case of clauses (x) and (y), calculated as of and including the Expiration Date, pursuant to the terms of the Certificate of Designations (such amount, the "Preferred Share Offer Price" and the Common Share Offer Price and Preferred Share Offer Price collectively, the "Offer Price"), in each case, net to the holder in cash, without interest, less any applicable withholding taxes, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, and this Letter of Transmittal (together with any amendments or supplements hereto, this "Letter of Transmittal"). The undersigned understands that Purchaser reserves the right to transfer or assign, from time to time, in whole or in part, to one or more of its affiliates, the right to purchase the Shares tendered herewith.

        On the terms and subject to the conditions of the Offer (including, if the Offer is extended or amended, the terms and conditions of such extension or amendment), subject to, and effective upon, acceptance for payment and payment for the Shares validly tendered herewith, and not properly withdrawn, prior to the Expiration Date and in accordance with the terms of the Offer, the undersigned hereby sells, assigns and transfers to, or upon the order of, Purchaser, all right, title and interest in and to all of the Shares being tendered hereby and any Shares or other rights or securities issued or issuable in respect of such Shares on or after the date hereof (excluding Accrued and Unpaid Dividends payable in respect of such Preferred Shares, as specified in the Certificate of Designations) (collectively, "Distributions"). In addition, the undersigned hereby irrevocably appoints each of the designees of Purchaser the true and lawful agent and attorney-in-fact and proxy of the undersigned with respect to such Shares and any Distributions with full power of substitution (such proxies and power of attorney being deemed to be an irrevocable power coupled with an interest in the tendered shares) to the full extent of such stockholder's rights with respect to such Shares and any Distributions (a) to deliver certificates representing Shares (the "Share Certificates") and any Distributions, or transfer of ownership of such Shares and any Distributions on the account books maintained by The Depository Trust Company ("DTC"), together, in either such case, with all accompanying evidence of transfer and authenticity, to or upon the order of Purchaser, (b) to present such Shares and any Distributions for transfer on the books of Care.com and (c) to receive all benefits and otherwise exercise all rights of beneficial ownership of such Shares and any Distributions, all in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions of the Offer.

        By executing this Letter of Transmittal (or taking action resulting in the delivery of an Agent's Message), the undersigned hereby irrevocably appoints each of the designees of Purchaser the attorneys-in-fact and proxies of the undersigned, each with full power of substitution, to the full extent of such stockholder's rights with respect to the Shares tendered hereby which have been accepted for payment and with respect to any Distributions. The designees of Purchaser will, with respect to the Shares and any associated Distributions for which the appointment is effective, be empowered to exercise all voting and any other rights of such stockholder, as they, in their sole discretion, may deem proper at any annual, special, adjourned or postponed meeting of Care.com's stockholders, by written consent in lieu of any such meeting or otherwise. This proxy and power of attorney shall be irrevocable and coupled with an interest in the tendered Shares. Such appointment is effective when, and only to

the extent that, Purchaser accepts the Shares tendered with this Letter of Transmittal for payment pursuant to the Offer. Upon the effectiveness of such appointment, without further action, all prior powers of attorney, proxies and consents given by the undersigned with respect to such Shares and any associated Distributions will be revoked and no subsequent powers of attorney, proxies, consents or revocations may be given (and, if given, will not be deemed effective). Purchaser reserves the right to require that, in order for Shares to be deemed validly tendered, immediately upon Purchaser's acceptance for payment of such Shares, Purchaser must be able to exercise full voting, consent and other rights, to the extent permitted under applicable law, with respect to such Shares and any associated Distributions, including voting at any meeting of stockholders or executing a written consent concerning any matter.

        The undersigned hereby represents and warrants that the undersigned has full power and authority to tender, sell, assign and transfer the Shares and any Distributions tendered hereby and, when the same are accepted for payment by Purchaser, Purchaser will acquire good, marketable and unencumbered title thereto, free and clear of all liens, restrictions, charges and encumbrances and the same will not be subject to any adverse claim. The undersigned hereby represents and warrants that the undersigned is the registered owner of the Shares, or the Share Certificate(s) have been endorsed to the undersigned in blank, or the undersigned is a participant in DTC whose name appears on a security position listing as the owner of the Shares. The undersigned will, upon request, execute and deliver any additional documents deemed by Computershare Trust Company, N.A., the depositary and paying agent for the Offer (the "Depositary") or Purchaser to be necessary or desirable to complete the sale, assignment and transfer of the Shares and any Distributions tendered hereby. In addition, the undersigned shall promptly remit and transfer to the Depositary for the account of Purchaser any and all Distributions in respect of the Shares tendered hereby, accompanied by appropriate documentation of transfer and, pending such remittance or appropriate assurance thereof, Purchaser shall be entitled to all rights and privileges as owner of any such Distributions and may withhold the entire purchase price or deduct from the purchase price the amount or value thereof, as determined by Purchaser in its sole discretion.

        It is understood that the undersigned will not receive payment for the Shares unless and until the Shares are accepted for payment and until the Share Certificate(s) owned by the undersigned are received by the Depositary at the address set forth above, together with such additional documents as the Depositary may require, or, in the case of Shares held in book-entry form, ownership of Shares is validly transferred on the account books maintained by DTC, and until the same are processed for payment by the Depositary.

        IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT THE METHOD OF DELIVERY OF SHARES, THE LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL AND ALL OTHER REQUIRED DOCUMENTS, INCLUDING DELIVERY THROUGH DTC, IS AT THE ELECTION AND RISK OF THE UNDERSIGNED. DELIVERY OF ALL SUCH DOCUMENTS WILL BE DEEMED MADE ONLY WHEN ACTUALLY RECEIVED BY THE DEPOSITARY (INCLUDING, IN THE CASE OF A BOOK-ENTRY TRANSFER, BY BOOK-ENTRY CONFIRMATION (AS DEFINED BELOW)). IF SUCH DELIVERY IS BY MAIL, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT ALL SUCH DOCUMENTS BE SENT BY PROPERLY INSURED REGISTERED MAIL WITH RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED. IN ALL CASES, SUFFICIENT TIME SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO ENSURE TIMELY DELIVERY.

        All authority conferred or agreed to be conferred pursuant to this Letter of Transmittal shall not be affected by, and shall survive, the death or incapacity of the undersigned and any obligation of the undersigned hereunder shall be binding upon the heirs, executors, administrators, trustees in bankruptcy, personal representatives, successors and assigns of the undersigned. Except as stated in the Offer to Purchase, this tender is irrevocable.

INSTRUCTIONS
Forming Part of the Terms and Conditions of the Offer

        1.    Guarantee of Signatures.    Except as otherwise provided below, all signatures on this Letter of Transmittal must be guaranteed by a financial institution (including most commercial banks, savings and loan associations and brokerage houses) that is a member in good standing of a recognized Medallion Program approved by the Securities Transfer Association, Inc., including the Security Transfer Agents Medallion Program, the New York Stock Exchange Medallion Signature Program and the Stock Exchanges Medallion Program (each, an "Eligible Institution"). Signatures on this Letter of Transmittal need not be guaranteed (a) if this Letter of Transmittal is signed by the registered owner(s) (which term, for purposes of this document, includes any participant in any of DTC's systems whose name appears on a security position listing as the owner of the Shares) of Shares tendered herewith and such registered owner has not completed the box titled "Special Payment Instructions" or the box titled "Special Delivery Instructions" on this Letter of Transmittal or (b) if such Shares are tendered for the account of an Eligible Institution. See Instruction 5.

        2.    Delivery of Letter of Transmittal and Certificates or Book-Entry Confirmations.    This Letter of Transmittal is to be completed by stockholders if Share Certificates are to be forwarded herewith. Share Certificates representing all physically tendered Shares, or confirmation of any book-entry transfer into the Depositary's account at DTC of Shares tendered by book-entry transfer ("Book-Entry Confirmation"), as well as this Letter of Transmittal, properly completed and duly executed with any required signature guarantees, or an Agent's Message in lieu of the Letter of Transmittal in the case of a book-entry transfer, and any other required documents, must, in any case, be transmitted to and received by the Depositary at one of its addresses set forth herein prior to the Expiration Date. Please do not send your Share Certificates directly to Purchaser, Parent or Care.com.

        Stockholders whose Share Certificates are not immediately available and cannot be delivered to the Depositary prior to the Expiration Date, or who cannot complete the procedure for book-entry transfer prior to the Expiration Date or who cannot deliver all required documents to the Depositary prior to the Expiration Date, may nevertheless tender their Shares by properly completing and duly executing a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedure set forth in Section 3 of the Offer to Purchase. Pursuant to such procedure: (a) such tender must be made by or through an Eligible Institution, (b) a properly completed and duly executed Notice of Guaranteed Delivery substantially in the form provided by Purchaser must be received by the Depositary prior to the Expiration Date and (c) the certificates for all tendered Shares, in proper form for transfer (or a Book-Entry Confirmation with respect to all such Shares), together with this Letter of Transmittal, properly completed and duly executed, with any required signature guarantees (or, in the case of a book-entry transfer, an Agent's Message in lieu of this Letter of Transmittal), and any other required documents, are received by the Depositary within two trading days after the date of execution of such Notice of Guaranteed Delivery. For purposes of the foregoing, a trading day is any day on which the NYSE is open for business. The Notice of Guaranteed Delivery may be delivered or transmitted by overnight courier, mail or email to the Depositary. Shares tendered by a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery will not be deemed validly tendered for purposes of satisfying the Minimum Tender Condition (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), unless and until such Shares underlying such Notice of Guaranteed Delivery are delivered to the Depositary prior to the Expiration Date.

        If certificates representing Shares are forwarded separately to the Depositary, a properly completed and duly executed Letter of Transmittal must accompany each delivery of certificates.

        The term "Agent's Message" means a message, transmitted by DTC to, and received by, the Depositary and forming part of a Book-Entry Confirmation, which states that DTC has received an express acknowledgment from the participant in DTC tendering the Shares which are the subject of such Book-Entry Confirmation that such participant has received and agrees to be bound by the terms

of this Letter of Transmittal and that Purchaser may enforce such agreement against the participant. The term "Agent's Message" also includes any hard copy printout evidencing such message generated by a computer terminal maintained at the Depositary's office.

        THE METHOD OF DELIVERY OF SHARES, THIS LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL AND ALL OTHER REQUIRED DOCUMENTS, INCLUDING DELIVERY THROUGH DTC, IS AT THE ELECTION AND RISK OF THE TENDERING STOCKHOLDER. DELIVERY OF ALL SUCH DOCUMENTS WILL BE DEEMED MADE ONLY WHEN ACTUALLY RECEIVED BY THE DEPOSITARY (INCLUDING, IN THE CASE OF A BOOK-ENTRY TRANSFER, BY BOOK-ENTRY CONFIRMATION). IF SUCH DELIVERY IS BY MAIL, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT ALL SUCH DOCUMENTS BE SENT BY PROPERLY INSURED REGISTERED MAIL WITH RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED. IN ALL CASES, SUFFICIENT TIME SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO ENSURE TIMELY DELIVERY.

        No alternative, conditional or contingent tenders will be accepted and no fractional Shares will be purchased. All tendering stockholders, by execution of this Letter of Transmittal, waive any right to receive any notice of the acceptance of their Shares for payment.

        All questions as to the validity, form, eligibility (including time of receipt) and acceptance of any tender of Shares hereunder, including questions as to the proper completion or execution of any Letter of Transmittal, Notice of Guaranteed Delivery or other required documents and as to the proper form for transfer of any certificate of Shares, will be determined by Purchaser in Purchaser's sole and absolute discretion, which determination will be final and binding, subject to the rights of the tendering holders of Shares to challenge Purchaser's determination in a court of competent jurisdiction. Purchaser reserves the absolute right to reject any and all tenders determined by Purchaser not to be in proper form or the acceptance for payment of or payment for which may, in Purchaser's opinion, be unlawful. Purchaser also reserves the absolute right to waive any defect or irregularity in the tender of any Shares of any particular stockholder whether or not similar defects or irregularities are waived in the case of any other stockholder. No tender of Shares will be deemed to have been validly made until all defects and irregularities relating thereto have been cured or waived. None of Parent, Purchaser or any of their respective affiliates or assigns, the Depositary, the Information Agent, or any other person will be under any duty to give notification of any defects or irregularities in tenders or incur any liability for failure to give any such notifications.

        3.    Inadequate Space.    If the space provided herein is inadequate, the certificate numbers and/or the number of Shares should be listed on a separate schedule attached hereto and separately signed on each page thereof in the same manner as this Letter of Transmittal is signed.

        4.    Partial Tenders (Applicable to Certificate Stockholders Only).    If fewer than all the Shares evidenced by any Share Certificate delivered to the Depositary are to be tendered, fill in the number of Shares which are to be tendered in the column titled "Number of Shares Tendered" in the box titled "Description of Shares Tendered." In such cases, new certificate(s) for the remainder of the Shares that were evidenced by the old certificate(s) but not tendered will be sent to the registered owner, unless otherwise provided in the appropriate box on this Letter of Transmittal, as soon as practicable after the Expiration Date. All Shares represented by Share Certificates delivered to the Depositary will be deemed to have been tendered unless otherwise indicated.

        5.    Signatures on Letter of Transmittal; Stock Powers and Endorsements.    If this Letter of Transmittal is signed by the registered owner(s) of the Shares tendered hereby, the signature(s) must correspond with the name(s) as written on the face of the Share Certificate(s) without alteration or any other change whatsoever.

        If any Shares tendered hereby are owned of record by two or more joint owners, all such owners must sign this Letter of Transmittal.

Scan COY IACI Corp Actions Voluntary

        If any tendered Shares are registered in the names of different holder(s), it will be necessary to complete, sign and submit as many separate Letters of Transmittal as there are different registrations of such Shares.

        If this Letter of Transmittal or any certificates or stock powers are signed by trustees, executors, administrators, guardians, attorneys-in-fact, officers of corporations or others acting in a fiduciary or representative capacity, such persons should so indicate when signing, and proper evidence satisfactory to Purchaser of their authority so to act must be submitted.

        If this Letter of Transmittal is signed by the registered owner(s) of the Shares listed and transmitted hereby, no endorsements of Share Certificates or separate stock powers are required unless payment is to be made to, or Share Certificates representing Shares not tendered or accepted for payment are to be issued in the name of, a person other than the registered owner(s), in which case the Share Certificates representing the Shares tendered by this Letter of Transmittal must be endorsed or accompanied by appropriate stock powers, in either case, signed exactly as the name(s) of the registered owner(s) or holder(s) appear(s) on the Share Certificates. Signatures on such Share Certificates or stock powers must be guaranteed by an Eligible Institution.

        If this Letter of Transmittal is signed by a person other than the registered owner(s) of the Share(s) listed, the Share Certificate(s) must be endorsed or accompanied by the appropriate stock powers, in either case, signed exactly as the name or names of the registered owner(s) or holder(s) appear(s) on the Share Certificate(s). Signatures on such Share Certificates or stock powers must be guaranteed by an Eligible Institution.

        6.    Transfer Taxes.    Purchaser or any successor entity thereto will pay any transfer taxes with respect to the transfer and sale of Shares to it or to its order pursuant to the Offer (for the avoidance of doubt, transfer taxes do not include United States federal withholding taxes). If, however, payment of the purchase price is to be made to, or (in the circumstances permitted hereby) if Share Certificates not tendered or accepted for payment are to be registered in the name of, any person other than the registered owner(s), or if tendered Share Certificates are registered in the name of any person other than the person signing this Letter of Transmittal, the amount of any transfer taxes (whether imposed on the registered owner(s) or such person) payable on account of the transfer to such person will be deducted from the purchase price unless satisfactory evidence of the payment of such taxes, or exemption therefrom, is submitted.

        Except as provided in this Instruction 6, it will not be necessary for transfer tax stamps to be affixed to the Share Certificates listed in this Letter of Transmittal.

        7.    Special Payment and Delivery Instructions.    If a check for the purchase price is to be issued, and/or Share Certificates representing Shares not tendered or accepted for payment are to be issued or returned to, a person other than the signer(s) of this Letter of Transmittal or to an address other than that shown in the box titled "Description of Shares Tendered" above, the appropriate boxes on this Letter of Transmittal should be completed. Stockholders delivering Shares tendered hereby or by Agent's Message by book-entry transfer may request that Shares not purchased be credited to an account maintained at DTC as such stockholder may designate in the box titled "Special Payment Instructions" herein. If no such instructions are given, all such Shares not purchased will be returned by crediting the same account at DTC as the account from which such Shares were delivered.

        8.    Requests for Assistance or Additional Copies.    Questions or requests for assistance may be directed to the Information Agent at its address and telephone number set forth on the back cover or to your broker, dealer, commercial bank or trust company. Additional copies of the Offer to Purchase, this Letter of Transmittal, the Notice of Guaranteed Delivery and other tender offer materials may be obtained from the Information Agent as set forth on the back cover, and will be furnished at Purchaser's expense.

        9.    Backup Withholding.    Under U.S. federal income tax laws, the Depositary will be required to withhold a portion of the amount of any payments made to certain stockholders pursuant to the Offer or the Merger (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), as applicable. To avoid such backup withholding, each tendering stockholder or payee that is a United States person (for U.S. federal income tax purposes), must provide the Depositary with such stockholder's or payee's correct taxpayer identification number ("TIN") and certify that such stockholder or payee is not subject to such backup withholding by completing the attached IRS Form W-9. Certain stockholders or payees (including, among others, corporations, non-resident foreign individuals and foreign entities) are not subject to these backup withholding and reporting requirements, but such stockholders or payees should certify their exemption by completing the applicable IRS Form W-9 or W-8. A tendering stockholder who is a foreign individual or a foreign entity should complete, sign, and submit to the Depositary the appropriate IRS Form W-8. An IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E or other applicable IRS Form W-8 may be obtained from the Depositary or downloaded from the IRS's website at the following address: http://www.irs.gov. Failure to complete the IRS Form W-9 or applicable IRS Form W-8 will not, by itself, cause Shares to be deemed invalidly tendered, but may require the Depositary to withhold a portion of the amount of any payments made of the Common Share Offer Price or the Preferred Share Offer Price pursuant to the Offer or the Merger, as applicable.

        If backup withholding applies, the Depositary is required to withhold a portion of any payments of the purchase price made to the stockholder. Backup withholding is not an additional tax. Rather, the tax liability of persons subject to backup withholding will be reduced by the amount of tax withheld. If withholding results in an overpayment of taxes, a refund or credit may be obtained from the IRS provided that the required information is furnished to the IRS.

        Please consult your accountant or tax advisor for further guidance regarding the completion of the appropriate IRS Form W-9 or IRS Form W-8, as applicable, to claim exemption from backup withholding or contact the Depositary.

        NOTE: FAILURE TO COMPLETE AND RETURN THE IRS FORM W-9 OR AN APPLICABLE IRS FORM W-8 MAY RESULT IN BACKUP WITHHOLDING OF A PORTION OF ANY PAYMENTS MADE TO YOU PURSUANT TO THE OFFER. PLEASE REVIEW THE "IMPORTANT TAX INFORMATION" SECTION BELOW.

        10.    Lost, Destroyed, Mutilated or Stolen Share Certificates.    If any Share Certificate has been lost, destroyed, mutilated or stolen, the stockholder should promptly notify the Transfer Agent, at (800) 937-5449 or (718) 921-8124. The stockholder will then be instructed as to the steps that must be taken in order to replace the Share Certificate. This Letter of Transmittal and related documents cannot be processed until the procedures for replacing lost, mutilated, destroyed or stolen Share Certificates have been followed.

        11.    Waiver of Conditions.    The conditions of the Offer may be waived by the Parent or Purchaser in whole or in part at any time or from time to time prior to the Expiration Date (except that the Minimum Tender Condition as defined in the Offer to Purchase may not be waived), in each case, subject to the terms of the Merger Agreement (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) and applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

IMPORTANT: THIS LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL OR AN AGENT'S MESSAGE, TOGETHER WITH SHARE CERTIFICATE(S) OR BOOK-ENTRY CONFIRMATION OR A PROPERLY COMPLETED AND DULY EXECUTED NOTICE OF GUARANTEED DELIVERY AND ALL OTHER REQUIRED DOCUMENTS, MUST BE RECEIVED BY THE DEPOSITARY PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION DATE.

IMPORTANT TAX INFORMATION

        Under current U.S. federal income tax law, a stockholder who tenders Care.com stock certificates that are accepted for exchange may be subject to backup withholding. In order to avoid such backup withholding, a stockholder who is a United States person (as defined for United States federal income tax purposes) must provide the Depositary with such stockholder's correct taxpayer identification number and certify that such stockholder is not subject to such backup withholding by completing the IRS Form W-9 provided herewith. In general, if a stockholder is an individual, the taxpayer identification number is the Social Security number of such individual. If the Depositary is not provided with the correct taxpayer identification number, the stockholder may be subject to a penalty imposed by the IRS. For further information concerning backup withholding and instructions for completing the IRS Form W-9 (including how to obtain a taxpayer identification number if you do not have one and how to complete the IRS Form W-9 if the Care.com stock certificates are held in more than one name), consult the enclosed IRS Form W-9 and the instructions thereto.

        Certain stockholders (including, among others, all corporations and certain foreign individuals) are not subject to these backup withholding and reporting requirements. An exempt recipient that is a United States person should certify its exemption by providing an IRS Form W-9. In order to satisfy the Depositary that a foreign stockholder qualifies as an exempt recipient, such stockholder must submit a statement, signed under penalties of perjury, attesting to that stockholder's exempt status, on a properly completed applicable IRS Form W-8. Such forms can be obtained from the Depositary or downloaded from the IRS's website at the following address: http://www.irs.gov.

        Failure to complete the IRS Form W-9 or applicable IRS Form W-8 will not, by itself, cause the Care.com stock certificates to be deemed invalidly tendered, but may require the Depositary to withhold a portion of the amount of any payments made pursuant to the Offer or the Merger, as applicable. Backup withholding is not an additional federal income tax. Rather, the federal income tax liability of a person subject to backup withholding will be reduced by the amount of tax withheld. If withholding results in an overpayment of taxes, a refund may be obtained provided that the required information is furnished to the IRS.

        NOTE: FAILURE TO COMPLETE AND RETURN THE IRS FORM W-9 (OR AN APPLICABLE IRS FORM W-8) MAY RESULT IN BACKUP WITHHOLDING OF A PORTION OF ANY PAYMENTS MADE TO YOU PURSUANT TO THE OFFER OR THE MERGER, AS APPLICABLE. PLEASE REVIEW THE ENCLOSED IRS FORM W-9 AND THE INSTRUCTIONS THERETO FOR ADDITIONAL DETAILS.

General Instructions

Section references are to the Internal Revenue Code unless otherwise noted.

Future developments. For the latest information about developments related to Form W-9 and its instructions, such as legislation enacted after they were published, go to www.irs.gov/FormW9.

Purpose of Form

An individual or entity (Form W-9 requester) who is required to file an information return with the IRS must obtain your correct taxpayer identification number (TIN) which may be your social security number (SSN), individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN), adoption taxpayer identification number (ATIN), or employer identification number (EIN), to report on an information return the amount paid to you, or other amount reportable on an information return. Examples of information returns include, but are not limited to, the following.

• Form 1099-INT (interest earned or paid)

• Form 1099-DIV (dividends, including those from stocks or mutual funds)

• Form 1099-MISC (various types of income, prizes, awards, or gross proceeds)

• Form 1099-B (stock or mutual fund sales and certain other transactions by brokers)

• Form 1099-S (proceeds from real estate transactions)

• Form 1099-K (merchant card and third party network transactions)

• Form 1098 (home mortgage interest), 1098-E (student loan interest), 1098-T (tuition)

• Form 1099-C (canceled debt)

• Form 1099-A (acquisition or abandonment of secured property)

     Use Form W-9 only if you are a U.S. person (including a resident alien), to provide your correct TIN.

     If you do not return Form W-9 to the requester with a TIN, you might be subject to backup withholding. See What is backup withholding, later.

    Cat. No. 10231X   Form W-9 (Rev. 10-2018)

Form W-9 (Rev. 10-2018)   Page 2

 

 

     By signing the filled-out form, you:

     1. Certify that the TIN you are giving is correct (or you are waiting for a number to be issued),

     2. Certify that you are not subject to backup withholding, or

     3. Claim exemption from backup withholding if you are a U.S. exempt payee. If applicable, you are also certifying that as a U.S. person, your allocable share of any partnership income from a U.S. trade or business is not subject to the withholding tax on foreign partners' share of effectively connected income, and

     4. Certify that FATCA code(s) entered on this form (if any) indicating that you are exempt from the FATCA reporting, is correct. See What is FATCA reporting, later, for further information.

Note: If you are a U.S. person and a requester gives you a form other than Form W-9 to request your TIN, you must use the requester's form if it is substantially similar to this Form W-9.

Definition of a U.S. person. For federal tax purposes, you are considered a U.S. person if you are:

• An individual who is a U.S. citizen or U.S. resident alien;

• A partnership, corporation, company, or association created or organized in the United States or under the laws of the United States;

• An estate (other than a foreign estate); or

• A domestic trust (as defined in Regulations section 301.7701-7).

Special rules for partnerships. Partnerships that conduct a trade or business in the United States are generally required to pay a withholding tax under section 1446 on any foreign partners' share of effectively connected taxable income from such business. Further, in certain cases where a Form W-9 has not been received, the rules under section 1446 require a partnership to presume that a partner is a foreign person, and pay the section 1446 withholding tax. Therefore, if you are a U.S. person that is a partner in a partnership conducting a trade or business in the United States, provide Form W-9 to the partnership to establish your U.S. status and avoid section 1446 withholding on your share of partnership income.

     In the cases below, the following person must give Form W-9 to the partnership for purposes of establishing its U.S. status and avoiding withholding on its allocable share of net income from the partnership conducting a trade or business in the United States.

• In the case of a disregarded entity with a U.S. owner, the U.S. owner of the disregarded entity and not the entity;

• In the case of a grantor trust with a U.S. grantor or other U.S. owner, generally, the U.S. grantor or other U.S. owner of the grantor trust and not the trust; and

• In the case of a U.S. trust (other than a grantor trust), the U.S. trust (other than a grantor trust) and not the beneficiaries of the trust.

Foreign person. If you are a foreign person or the U.S. branch of a foreign bank that has elected to be treated as a U.S. person, do not use Form W-9. Instead, use the appropriate Form W-8 or Form 8233 (see Pub. 515, Withholding of Tax on Nonresident Aliens and Foreign Entities).

Nonresident alien who becomes a resident alien. Generally, only a nonresident alien individual may use the terms of a tax treaty to reduce or eliminate U.S. tax on certain types of income. However, most tax treaties contain a provision known as a "saving clause." Exceptions specified in the saving clause may permit an exemption from tax to continue for certain types of income even after the payee has otherwise become a U.S. resident alien for tax purposes.

     If you are a U.S. resident alien who is relying on an exception contained in the saving clause of a tax treaty to claim an exemption from U.S. tax on certain types of income, you must attach a statement to Form W-9 that specifies the following five items.

     1. The treaty country. Generally, this must be the same treaty under which you claimed exemption from tax as a nonresident alien.

     2. The treaty article addressing the income.

     3. The article number (or location) in the tax treaty that contains the saving clause and its exceptions.

     4. The type and amount of income that qualifies for the exemption from tax.

     5. Sufficient facts to justify the exemption from tax under the terms of the treaty article.

     Example. Article 20 of the U.S.-China income tax treaty allows an exemption from tax for scholarship income received by a Chinese student temporarily present in the United States. Under U.S. law, this student will become a resident alien for tax purposes if his or her stay in the United States exceeds 5 calendar years. However, paragraph 2 of the first Protocol to the U.S.-China treaty (dated April 30, 1984) allows the provisions of Article 20 to continue to apply even after the Chinese student becomes a resident alien of the United States. A Chinese student who qualifies for this exception (under paragraph 2 of the first protocol) and is relying on this exception to claim an exemption from tax on his or her scholarship or fellowship income would attach to Form W-9 a statement that includes the information described above to support that exemption.

     If you are a nonresident alien or a foreign entity, give the requester the appropriate completed Form W-8 or Form 8233.

Backup Withholding

What is backup withholding? Persons making certain payments to you must under certain conditions withhold and pay to the IRS 24% of such payments. This is called "backup withholding." Payments that may be subject to backup withholding include interest, tax-exempt interest, dividends, broker and barter exchange transactions, rents, royalties, nonemployee pay, payments made in settlement of payment card and third party network transactions, and certain payments from fishing boat operators. Real estate transactions are not subject to backup withholding.

     You will not be subject to backup withholding on payments you receive if you give the requester your correct TIN, make the proper certifications, and report all your taxable interest and dividends on your tax return.

Payments you receive will be subject to backup withholding if:

     1. You do not furnish your TIN to the requester,

     2. You do not certify your TIN when required (see the instructions for Part II for details),

     3. The IRS tells the requester that you furnished an incorrect TIN,

     4. The IRS tells you that you are subject to backup withholding because you did not report all your interest and dividends on your tax return (for reportable interest and dividends only), or

     5. You do not certify to the requester that you are not subject to backup withholding under 4 above (for reportable interest and dividend accounts opened after 1983 only).

     Certain payees and payments are exempt from backup withholding. See Exempt payee code, later, and the separate Instructions for the Requester of Form W-9 for more information.

     Also see Special rules for partnerships, earlier.

What is FATCA Reporting?

The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) requires a participating foreign financial institution to report all United States account holders that are specified United States persons. Certain payees are exempt from FATCA reporting. See Exemption from FATCA reporting code, later, and the Instructions for the Requester of Form W-9 for more information.

Updating Your Information

You must provide updated information to any person to whom you claimed to be an exempt payee if you are no longer an exempt payee and anticipate receiving reportable payments in the future from this person. For example, you may need to provide updated information if you are a C corporation that elects to be an S corporation, or if you no longer are tax exempt. In addition, you must furnish a new Form W-9 if the name or TIN changes for the account; for example, if the grantor of a grantor trust dies.

Penalties

Failure to furnish TIN. If you fail to furnish your correct TIN to a requester, you are subject to a penalty of $50 for each such failure unless your failure is due to reasonable cause and not to willful neglect.

Civil penalty for false information with respect to withholding. If you make a false statement with no reasonable basis that results in no backup withholding, you are subject to a $500 penalty.


Form W-9 (Rev. 10-2018)   Page 3

 

 

Criminal penalty for falsifying information. Willfully falsifying certifications or affirmations may subject you to criminal penalties including fines and/or imprisonment.

Misuse of TINs. If the requester discloses or uses TINs in violation of federal law, the requester may be subject to civil and criminal penalties.

Specific Instructions

Line 1

You must enter one of the following on this line; do not leave this line blank. The name should match the name on your tax return.

     If this Form W-9 is for a joint account (other than an account maintained by a foreign financial institution (FFI)), list first, and then circle, the name of the person or entity whose number you entered in Part I of Form W-9. If you are providing Form W-9 to an FFI to document a joint account, each holder of the account that is a U.S. person must provide a Form W-9.

     a. Individual. Generally, enter the name shown on your tax return. If you have changed your last name without informing the Social Security Administration (SSA) of the name change, enter your first name, the last name as shown on your social security card, and your new last name.

Note: ITIN applicant: Enter your individual name as it was entered on your Form W-7 application, line 1a. This should also be the same as the name you entered on the Form 1040/1040A/1040EZ you filed with your application.

     b. Sole proprietor or single-member LLC. Enter your individual name as shown on your 1040/1040A/1040EZ on line 1. You may enter your business, trade, or "doing business as" (DBA) name on line 2.

     c. Partnership, LLC that is not a single-member LLC, C corporation, or S corporation. Enter the entity's name as shown on the entity's tax return on line 1 and any business, trade, or DBA name on line 2.

     d. Other entities. Enter your name as shown on required U.S. federal tax documents on line 1. This name should match the name shown on the charter or other legal document creating the entity. You may enter any business, trade, or DBA name on line 2.

     e. Disregarded entity. For U.S. federal tax purposes, an entity that is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner is treated as a "disregarded entity." See Regulations section 301.7701-2(c)(2)(iii). Enter the owner's name on line 1. The name of the entity entered on line 1 should never be a disregarded entity. The name on line 1 should be the name shown on the income tax return on which the income should be reported. For example, if a foreign LLC that is treated as a disregarded entity for U.S. federal tax purposes has a single owner that is a U.S. person, the U.S. owner's name is required to be provided on line 1. If the direct owner of the entity is also a disregarded entity, enter the first owner that is not disregarded for federal tax purposes. Enter the disregarded entity's name on line 2, "Business name/disregarded entity name." If the owner of the disregarded entity is a foreign person, the owner must complete an appropriate Form W-8 instead of a Form W-9. This is the case even if the foreign person has a U.S. TIN.

Line 2

If you have a business name, trade name, DBA name, or disregarded entity name, you may enter it on line 2.

Line 3

Check the appropriate box on line 3 for the U.S. federal tax classification of the person whose name is entered on line 1. Check only one box on line 3.

Exemption from FATCA reporting code. The following codes identify payees that are exempt from reporting under FATCA. These codes apply to persons submitting this form for accounts maintained outside of the United States by certain foreign financial institutions. Therefore, if you are only submitting this form for an account you hold in the United States, you may leave this field blank. Consult with the person requesting this form if you are uncertain if the financial institution is subject to these requirements. A requester may indicate that a code is not required by providing you with a Form W-9 with "Not Applicable" (or any similar indication) written or printed on the line for a FATCA exemption code.

     A – An organization exempt from tax under section 501(a) or any individual retirement plan as defined in section 7701(a)(37)

Line 5

Enter your address (number, street, and apartment or suite number). This is where the requester of this Form W-9 will mail your information returns. If this address differs from the one the requester already has on file, write NEW at the top. If a new address is provided, there is still a chance the old address will be used until the payor changes your address in their records.

Line 6

Enter your city, state, and ZIP code.

Part I. Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN)

Enter your TIN in the appropriate box. If you are a resident alien and you do not have and are not eligible to get an SSN, your TIN is your IRS individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). Enter it in the social security number box. If you do not have an ITIN, see How to get a TIN below.

     If you are a sole proprietor and you have an EIN, you may enter either your SSN or EIN.

     If you are a single-member LLC that is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner, enter the owner's SSN (or EIN, if the owner has one). Do not enter the disregarded entity's EIN. If the LLC is classified as a corporation or partnership, enter the entity's EIN.

Note: See What Name and Number To Give the Requester, later, for further clarification of name and TIN combinations.

How to get a TIN. If you do not have a TIN, apply for one immediately. To apply for an SSN, get Form SS-5, Application for a Social Security Card, from your local SSA office or get this form online at www.SSA.gov. You may also get this form by calling 1-800-772-1213. Use Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, to apply for an ITIN, or Form SS-4, Application for Employer Identification Number, to apply for an EIN. You can apply for an EIN online by accessing the IRS website at www.irs.gov/Businesses and clicking on Employer Identification Number (EIN) under Starting a Business. Go to www.irs.gov/Forms to view, download, or print Form W-7 and/or Form SS-4. Or, you can go to www.irs.gov/OrderForms to place an order and have Form W-7 and/or SS-4 mailed to you within 10 business days.

     If you are asked to complete Form W-9 but do not have a TIN, apply for a TIN and write "Applied For" in the space for the TIN, sign and date the form, and give it to the requester. For interest and dividend payments, and certain payments made with respect to readily tradable instruments, generally you will have 60 days to get a TIN and give it to the requester before you are subject to backup withholding on payments. The 60-day rule does not apply to other types of payments. You will be subject to backup withholding on all such payments until you provide your TIN to the requester.

Note: Entering "Applied For" means that you have already applied for a TIN or that you intend to apply for one soon.

Caution: A disregarded U.S. entity that has a foreign owner must use the appropriate Form W-8.

Part II. Certification

To establish to the withholding agent that you are a U.S. person, or resident alien, sign Form W-9. You may be requested to sign by the withholding agent even if item 1, 4, or 5 below indicates otherwise.

     For a joint account, only the person whose TIN is shown in Part I should sign (when required). In the case of a disregarded entity, the person identified on line 1 must sign. Exempt payees, see Exempt payee code, earlier.

Signature requirements. Complete the certification as indicated in items 1 through 5 below.

You must sign the certification or backup withholding will apply. If you are subject to backup withholding and you are merely providing your correct TIN to the requester, you must cross out item 2 in the certification before signing the form.

     3. Real estate transactions. You must sign the certification. You may cross out item 2 of the certification.

     4. Other payments. You must give your correct TIN, but you do not have to sign the certification unless you have been notified that you have previously given an incorrect TIN.

Secure Your Tax Records From Identity Theft

Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personal information such as your name, SSN, or other identifying information, without your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes. An identity thief may use your SSN to get a job or may file a tax return using your SSN to receive a refund.

     To reduce your risk:

• Protect your SSN,

• Ensure your employer is protecting your SSN, and

• Be careful when choosing a tax preparer.

     If your tax records are affected by identity theft and you receive a notice from the IRS, respond right away to the name and phone number printed on the IRS notice or letter.

     If your tax records are not currently affected by identity theft but you think you are at risk due to a lost or stolen purse or wallet, questionable credit card activity or credit report, contact the IRS Identity Theft Hotline at 1-800-908-4490 or submit Form 14039.

     For more information, see Pub. 5027, Identity Theft Information for Taxpayers.

January 13, 2020

To Brokers, Dealers, Commercial Banks, Trust Companies and Other Nominees:

        We have been engaged by Buzz Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Purchaser"), and a wholly-owned subsidiary of IAC/InterActiveCorp, a Delaware corporation ("Parent"), to act as Information Agent in connection with Purchaser's offer to purchase (the "Offer") (i) all outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the "Common Shares"), of Care.com, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Care.com"), at a price per Common Share of $15.00 (the "Common Share Offer Price") and (ii) all outstanding shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the "Preferred Shares," and together with the Common Shares, the "Shares"), of Care.com, at (x) 150% of the Liquidation Preference per share, as specified in the Certificate of Designations for the Preferred Shares (the "Certificate of Designations"), plus (y) Accrued and Unpaid Dividends payable in respect of such Preferred Shares, as specified in the Certificate of Designations, in the case of clauses (x) and (y), calculated as of and including the Expiration Date, pursuant to the terms of the Certificate of Designations (such amount, the "Preferred Share Offer Price" and the Common Share Offer Price and Preferred Share Offer Price collectively, the "Offer Price"), in each case, net to the holder in cash, without interest, less any applicable withholding taxes, upon the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, dated January 13, 2020 (together with any amendments or supplements thereto, the "Offer to Purchase") and in the related Letter of Transmittal (together with any amendments or supplements thereto, the "Letter of Transmittal") enclosed herewith. Please furnish copies of the enclosed materials to those of your clients for whom you hold Shares registered in your name or in the name of your nominee. At the effective time of the Merger (as defined below), each Share issued and outstanding immediately prior to such time (other than any (i) Shares held in the treasury of Care.com, (ii) Shares that at the commencement of the Offer were owned by Parent or Purchaser, or any direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of Care.com, Parent or Purchaser, (iii) Shares irrevocably accepted for payment in the Offer and (iv) Shares held by Care.com stockholders who properly demand and perfect appraisal rights under Delaware law, which will be cancelled and for which no payment will be delivered) will be converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the Offer Price.


        THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF CARE.COM, AT A MEETING DULY CALLED AND HELD AND ACTING BY UNANIMOUS APPROVAL OF THE DIRECTORS PRESENT AT THE MEETING, RECOMMENDED THAT CARE.COM'S STOCKHOLDERS ACCEPT THE OFFER AND TENDER THEIR COMMON SHARES AND PREFERRED SHARES, AS APPLICABLE, TO PURCHASER IN RESPONSE TO THE OFFER.

        The Offer is not subject to any financing condition. The conditions to the Offer are described in Section 13 of the Offer to Purchase.

        For your information and for forwarding to your clients for whom you hold Shares registered in your name or in the name of your nominee, we are enclosing the following documents:

        1.     the Offer to Purchase;

        2.     the Letter of Transmittal for your use in accepting the Offer and tendering Shares and for the information of your clients, together with the included Internal Revenue Service Form W-9;

        3.     a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery to be used to accept the Offer if certificates for Shares are not immediately available and cannot be delivered to Computershare Trust Company, N.A. (the "Depositary") prior to the Expiration Date, or who cannot complete the procedure for book-entry transfer prior to the Expiration Date or who cannot deliver all required documents to the Depositary prior to the Expiration Date, (the "Notice of Guaranteed Delivery"); and

        4.     a form of letter which may be sent to your clients for whose accounts you hold Shares registered in your name or in the name of your nominee, with space provided for obtaining such clients' instructions with regard to the Offer.

        We urge you to contact your clients as promptly as possible. Please note that the Offer and withdrawal rights will expire at one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on February 10, 2020, unless the Offer is extended or earlier terminated.

        The Offer is being made in connection with the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of December 20, 2019 (together with any amendments or supplements thereto, the "Merger Agreement"), among Care.com, Parent and Purchaser, pursuant to which, after the completion of the Offer and the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, Purchaser will be merged with and into Care.com, without a meeting of Care.com's stockholders in accordance with Section 251(h) of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the "DGCL"), with Care.com continuing as the surviving corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (the "Merger").

        After careful consideration, the Care.com board of directors, at a meeting duly called and held and acting by unanimous approval of the directors present at the meeting, adopted resolutions (i) determining that the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement (the "Transactions"), including the Offer and the Merger, are advisable, fair to and in the best interests of Care.com and its stockholders, (ii) approving, adopting and declaring advisable the Merger Agreement and the Transactions, including the Offer and the Merger, (iii) determining that the Merger shall be effected as soon as practicable following the Acceptance Time without a vote of Care.com's stockholders pursuant to Section 251(h) of the DGCL and (iv) recommending that Care.com's stockholders accept the Offer and tender their Common Shares and Preferred Shares, as applicable, to Purchaser in response to the Offer. In addition, concurrently with entering into the Merger Agreement, Parent and Purchaser entered in separate Support Agreements (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), with each of (i) Sheila Lirio Marcelo, the Founder, Chairwoman of the Care.com Board and Chief Executive Officer of Care.com, and The Sheila L. Marcelo 2012 Family Trust, (ii) CapitalG LP and (iii) Tenzing Global Management LLC and Tenzing Global Investors Fund I LP.

If stockholders are unable to deliver any required document or instrument to the Depositary by the Expiration Date, they may gain some extra time by having a broker, a bank or other fiduciary that is an eligible guarantor institution guarantee that the missing items will be received by the Depositary by using the Notice of Guaranteed Delivery. Accordingly, tendering stockholders may be paid at different times depending upon when certificates for Shares or Book-Entry Confirmation with respect to Shares are actually received by the Depositary. Under no circumstances will interest be paid on the Offer Price for Shares, regardless of any extension of the Offer or any delay in payment for Shares. Shares tendered by a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery will not be deemed validly tendered for purposes of satisfying the Minimum Tender Condition unless and until Shares underlying such Notice of Guaranteed Delivery are delivered to the Depositary prior to the Expiration Date.

Brokers, dealers, commercial banks and trust companies will upon request be reimbursed by Parent and Purchaser for customary mailing and handling expenses incurred by them in forwarding the offering material to their customers. Purchaser will pay all stock transfer taxes applicable to its purchase of Shares pursuant to the Offer, subject to Instruction 6 of the Letter of Transmittal.

        Any inquiries you may have with respect to the Offer should be addressed to, and additional copies of the enclosed materials may be obtained from, the undersigned at the address and telephone numbers set forth below.
