The ROFR Notice will include the price per share at which Liberty must purchase the shares that it elects to purchase pursuant to the Proxy Agreement, i.e. the simple average of the VWAPs of Class A Common Stock for each of the two (2) full trading days immediately prior to the date of the ROFR Notice (such price, the “ROFR Per Share Purchase Price”).
