Tree.com, Inc., through its subsidiaries, owns various brands and businesses that provide information, tools, advice, products, and services for critical transactions in consumers’ lives. The company’s family of brands includes LendingTree, GetSmart, LendingTree Education, LendingTree Autos, LendingTree Home Pros and InsuranceTree. The company operates as a branded performance marketer. Segments The company’s segments include Lending, Auto, Education, and Home Services. Lending In this segment, the consumers seeking home mortgage loans can access the company’s nationwide network of approximately 300 banks, lenders and loan brokers online (via www.lendingtree.com or www.getsmart.com) or by calling 1-800-555-TREE. The company refers to these banks, lenders and loan brokers as its network lenders. Loan products offered by network lenders consist primarily of home mortgages (in connection with refinancings and purchases), home equity loans and reverse mortgages. The company selects lenders throughout the country in an effort to provide full geographic lending coverage and to offer a suite of loan offerings available in the market. To participate on its network, lenders are required to enter into contracts with the company that state the terms and conditions for such participation, although these contracts generally may be terminated for convenience by either party. The company performs certain due diligence procedures on prospective new lenders, including screening against a national anti-fraud database maintained by the Mortgage Asset Research Institute, which helps manage its risk exposure. The company also offers consumers an alternative short-form matching process, which provides them with lender contact information rather than conditional offers from network lenders. This short-form process typically requires consumers to submit less data than required in connection with the matching process described above and does not involve consumer consent to an inquiry regarding credit. In 2013, the company expanded its mortgage offerings by launching LoanExplorer, a rate table loan marketplace where consumers can enter their loan and credit profile and dynamically view real-time rates from lenders without entering their contact information. Consumers then have the option of calling lenders directly, clicking through to lenders' Websites, or sending data requests for lenders to follow up with them directly. The company developed this offering through internal product development efforts. Other lending offerings include information, tools and access to reverse mortgage loans; personal loans; and credit cards. Reverse mortgage loans are a loan product available to qualifying homeowners age 62 or older. Personal loans are unsecured obligations generally carrying shorter terms and smaller loan amounts than mortgages. Credit cards offerings from all the major issuers. Auto This segment offers various resources to consumers seeking loans for purchasing new and used automobiles and for refinancing existing auto loans. Consumers complete a loan request form and then the company match those applications with a national platform of banks, brokers and credit unions seeking to serve these consumers. The company also offers prospective automobile buyers the opportunity to search for new and used automobiles through access to approximately 4,000 dealerships. Education This segment offers referrals to approximately 30 top-tier institutions and agencies for prospective students seeking institutions of higher education. Supported programs include Associates, Bachelors and Masters degrees across a range of subject categories, including business, education, healthcare, nursing, psychology and technology, among others. The company’s education Websites provide information and various resources related to educational opportunities for prospective students. Home Services This segment offers consumers opportunities to research and find home improvement professional services through its network of both local and national contractors. The company has local coverage nationwide for many of home improvement categori
