Dear Fellow Stockholders,
You are invited to attend Vimeo’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, at 10:00 AM Eastern Time.
This year’s Annual Meeting will be a virtual meeting, conducted solely online. Stockholders will be able to attend the Annual Meeting by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/VMEO2024. We believe hosting a virtual meeting will allow for greater stockholder attendance at the Annual Meeting by enabling stockholders who might not otherwise be able to travel to a physical meeting to attend online and participate from any location around the world.
At this year’s Annual Meeting, you will be asked to vote on the election of directors, the ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as Vimeo’s independent registered public accounting firm for 2024, and an amendment to our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to limit the liability of certain officers of Vimeo as permitted pursuant to recent amendments to the Delaware General Corporation Law. We will also hold a non-binding advisory vote on the compensation of our named executive officers (“NEOs”), as disclosed in this proxy statement. Finally, we will transact such other business as may properly come before the meeting, and stockholders will have an opportunity to ask questions. Our Board of Directors believes that the proposals being submitted for stockholder approval are in the best interests of Vimeo and its stockholders and recommends a vote consistent with the Board’s recommendation for each proposal.
It is important that your shares be represented and voted at the Annual Meeting regardless of the size of your holdings. Whether or not you plan to participate in the Annual Meeting, please take the time to vote online, by telephone, or, if you received a printed proxy card, by returning a marked, signed and dated proxy card. If you participate in the Annual Meeting, you may also vote your shares online at that time if you wish, even if you have previously submitted your vote.
Sincerely,
[MISSING IMAGE: sg_glennschiffman-bw.jpg]

Vimeo, Inc. 2024 Proxy Statement   1

Questions and Answers Regarding this Solicitation and Voting at the Annual Meeting
Q:
Why did I receive a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials?
A:
In accordance with rules adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), we have elected to deliver this proxy statement and our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 as filed with the SEC on February 22, 2024 (“2023 Annual Report”) to our stockholders online in lieu of mailing printed copies of these materials to each of its stockholders (the “Notice Process”). If you received a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials (the “Notice”) by mail, you will not receive printed copies of our proxy materials unless you request them. Instead, the Notice provides instructions on how to access this proxy statement and our 2023 Annual Report online, as well as how to obtain printed copies of these materials by mail. We believe that the Notice Process allows us to provide our stockholders with the information they need in a more timely manner than if we had elected to mail printed materials, while reducing the environmental impact of  (and lowering the costs associated with) the printing and distribution of our proxy materials.
The Notice, the proxy materials and the 2023 Annual Report are being mailed on or about April 9, 2024 to stockholders of record at the close of business on March 25, 2024 and this proxy statement and our 2023 Annual Report will be available at www.proxyvote.com beginning on April 9, 2024.

You will not receive a Notice if you have previously elected to receive printed copies of our proxy materials.
Q:
Can I vote my shares by filling out and returning the Notice?
A:
No. However, the Notice provides instructions on how to vote your shares: (i) before the date of the Annual Meeting by way of completing and submitting your proxy online, by phone or by requesting and returning a written proxy card by mail, or (ii) by voting at the Annual Meeting online at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ VMEO2024.

Only stockholders that have accessed the Annual Meeting as a stockholder by following the procedures outlined above will be permitted to submit questions during the Annual Meeting, and such stockholders may submit a question at any time during the meeting by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/VMEO2024. Each stockholder is limited to no more than two questions. Questions should be succinct and only cover a single topic, and must follow the “Rules of Conduct” that will be available on the Annual Meeting webpage for stockholders that have accessed the Annual Meeting as a stockholder by following the procedures outlined above.
Q:
Why are we holding the Annual Meeting virtually?
A:
This year we will host the Annual Meeting exclusively online. We believe that this format will allow us to preserve stockholder access while saving time and money for both Vimeo and its stockholders.

[MISSING IMAGE: lg_vsquare-4c.jpg]
   

Questions and Answers Regarding this Solicitation and Voting at the Annual Meeting
Q:
Who is entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting?
A:
Holders of Vimeo capital stock at the close of business on March 25, 2024, the record date for the Annual Meeting established by Vimeo’s Board, are entitled to receive notice of the Annual Meeting and to vote their shares at the Annual Meeting and any related adjournments or postponements.
At the close of business on March 25, 2024, there were 159,423,442 shares of Vimeo common stock and 9,399,250 shares of Class B common stock outstanding and entitled to vote. Holders of Vimeo common stock are entitled to one vote per share and holders of Class B common stock are entitled to ten votes per share.
Q:
What is the difference between a stockholder of record and a stockholder who holds Vimeo shares in street name?
A:
If your Vimeo shares are registered in your name with our transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company, N.A., you are a stockholder of record. If your Vimeo shares are held in the name of your broker, bank or other holder of record, then you are the beneficial owner of shares held in street name and our proxy materials are being forwarded to you by that organization. You may examine a list of the stockholders of record as of the close of business on March 25, 2024, the record date for the Annual Meeting, for any purpose germane to the Annual Meeting during normal business hours during the 10-day period ending on the day before the meeting at Vimeo’s corporate headquarters, located at 330 West 34th Street, 5th Floor, New York, New York 10001.
Q:
What shares are included on the enclosed proxy card?
A:
If you are a stockholder of record only, you will receive one proxy card from Broadridge for all Vimeo shares that you hold. If you hold Vimeo shares in street name through one or more banks, brokers and/or other holders of record, you will receive proxy materials, together with voting instructions and information regarding the consolidation of your votes, from the third party or parties through which you hold your Vimeo shares. If you are a stockholder of record and hold additional Vimeo shares in street name, you will receive proxy materials from Broadridge and the third party or parties through which you hold your Vimeo shares.
Q:
What are the quorum requirements for the Annual Meeting?
A:
The presence at the Annual Meeting, in person or by proxy, of holders of shares representing a majority of the voting power of the Company entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting constitutes a quorum. When the holders of Vimeo common stock vote as a separate class on a given matter, the presence at the Annual Meeting of holders of a majority of the total votes entitled to be cast by holders of Vimeo common stock is required for a quorum to be met with respect to such matter. Stockholders who participate in the Annual Meeting online at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/VMEO2024 will be deemed to be in person attendees for purposes of determining whether a quorum has been met. Shares of Vimeo capital stock represented by proxy will be treated as present at the Annual Meeting for purposes of determining whether there is a quorum, without regard to whether the proxy is marked as casting a vote or abstaining.
Q:
What matters will Vimeo stockholders vote on at the Annual Meeting?
A:
Vimeo stockholders will vote on the following proposals:

Proposal 1—to elect the eight Board nominees named in this proxy statement, each to hold office until the next succeeding annual meeting of stockholders or until such director’s successor shall have been duly elected and qualified (or, if earlier, such director’s removal or resignation from our Board);

Proposal 2—to ratify the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the 2024 fiscal year;

Proposal 3—to approve the officer exculpation amendment to the Charter;

Proposal 4—to hold a non-binding advisory vote on the compensation of our named executive officers; and

to transact such other business as may properly come before the Annual Meeting and any related adjournments or postponements.

[MISSING IMAGE: lg_vsquare-4c.jpg]
   

Questions and Answers Regarding this Solicitation and Voting at the Annual Meeting
Q:
Who will conduct the proxy solicitation and how much will it cost?
A:
We are soliciting proxies from stockholders on behalf of our Board and will pay for all costs incurred by Vimeo in connection with the solicitation. In addition to solicitation by mail, the directors, officers and employees of Vimeo and its subsidiaries may solicit proxies from stockholders of the Company in person or by telephone, facsimile or email without additional compensation other than reimbursement for their actual expenses. We will make arrangements with the brokers, banks and other nominees for the forwarding of solicitation material to the direct and indirect holders of capital stock.
Q:
Could other matters be decided at the Annual Meeting?
A:
As of the date of this proxy statement, we are not aware of any matters to be raised at the Annual Meeting other than those referred to in this proxy statement.
If any other matters are properly presented at the Annual Meeting for consideration, the two Vimeo officers who have been designated as proxies for the Annual Meeting (Gillian Munson and Jessica Tracy) will have the discretion to vote on those matters for stockholders who have submitted their proxy.
Q:
What do I need to do to vote at the Annual Meeting?
A:
The Vimeo Board is soliciting proxies for use at the Annual Meeting. Stockholders may submit proxies to instruct the designated proxies to vote their shares before the date of the Annual Meeting in any of three ways:

Submitting a proxy online: Submit your proxy online at www.proxyvote.com. Online proxy voting is available 24 hours a day and will close at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, on Monday, May 20, 2024;

Submitting a proxy by telephone: Submit your proxy by telephone by using the toll-free telephone number provided on your proxy card (1-800-690-6903). Telephone proxy voting is available 24 hours a day and will close at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, on Monday, May 20, 2024; or

Submitting a proxy by mail: If you choose to submit your proxy by mail, simply mark, date and sign your proxy, and return it in the postage-paid envelope provided or to Vote Processing, c/o Broadridge, 51 Mercedes Way, Edgewood, New York 11717.
You may also participate in the Annual Meeting online at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/VMEO2024 and vote your shares online during the Annual Meeting, even if you have previously submitted your vote. To do so, you will need the sixteen-digit control number included on your Notice, your proxy card or the instructions that accompanied your proxy materials.
For Vimeo shares held in street name, holders may submit a proxy online or by telephone before the date of the Annual Meeting if their broker, bank and/or other holder of record makes these methods available. If you submit a proxy online or by telephone, DO NOT request and return a printed proxy card from Vimeo or from your broker, bank and/or other holder of record. If you hold your shares through a broker, bank and/or other holder of record, follow the voting instructions you receive from your broker, bank and/or other holder of record.
Q:
If I hold my Vimeo shares in street name, will my broker, bank or other holder of record vote these shares for me?
A:
If your shares of Vimeo capital stock are held in street name, you must provide your broker, bank and/or other holder of record with instructions in order to vote these shares. If you do not provide voting instructions, whether your shares can be voted by your broker, bank and/or other holder of record depends on the type of item being considered for a vote.
Non-Routine Items. The election of directors, the officer exculpation amendment proposal, and the “say on pay” advisory proposal are non-routine items and may NOT be voted on by your broker, bank and/or other holder of record absent specific voting instructions from you. If you do not provide your bank, broker and/or other holder of record with voting instructions, your shares of Vimeo capital stock will be represented by “broker non-votes” for this proposal.
 
   
[MISSING IMAGE: lg_vsquare-4c.jpg]
Vimeo, Inc. 2024 Proxy Statement   5

Questions and Answers Regarding this Solicitation and Voting at the Annual Meeting
Routine Items. The ratification of Ernst & Young LLP as Vimeo’s independent registered public accounting firm for the 2024 fiscal year is a routine item. Generally, brokers, banks and other holders of record that do not receive voting instructions from you may vote on this proposal in their discretion.
Q:
What effect do abstentions and broker non-votes have on quorum requirements and the voting results for each proposal to be voted on at the Annual Meeting?
A:
Abstentions and shares represented by broker non-votes are counted as present for purposes of determining a quorum.

For any proposal for which the voting standard is based on the number of shares present at the Annual Meeting (the auditor ratification proposal and the “say on pay” advisory proposal), abstentions are treated as shares present and entitled to vote and, as a result, have the same effect as a vote against these proposals.

For any proposal for which the voting standard is based on the majority of the outstanding shares of Vimeo capital stock (the officer exculpation amendment proposal), abstentions and broker non-votes will have the same effect as a vote against this proposal.

For any proposal for which the voting standard is based on the actual number of votes cast at the meeting (the election of directors), abstentions have no impact on the vote.
Shares represented by broker non-votes are not treated as shares entitled to vote on the auditor ratification proposal, the “say on pay” advisory proposal, or the election of directors and, as a result, have no effect on the outcome of these proposals.
Q:
Can I change my vote or revoke my proxy?
A:
Yes. If you are a stockholder of record, you may change your vote or revoke your proxy at any time before the polls close at the Annual Meeting by:

submitting a later-dated proxy relating to the same shares online, by telephone or by mail before the date of the Annual Meeting, provided that any such proxy submitted by mail must be received at 330 West 34th Street, 5th Floor, New York, New York 10001, Attention: General Counsel no later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on May 20, 2024;

delivering a written notice, bearing a date later than your proxy, stating that you revoke the proxy, provided that such written notice must be received at 330 West 34th Street, 5th Floor, New York, New York 10001, Attention: General Counsel & Secretary no later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on May 20, 2024; or

participating in the Annual Meeting and voting online during the Annual Meeting at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/VMEO2024 (although virtual attendance at the Annual Meeting will not, by itself, change your vote or revoke a proxy).
To change your vote or revoke your proxy before the date of the Annual Meeting, follow the instructions provided on your Notice, proxy card or proxy materials to do so online or by telephone, or send a written notice or a new proxy card to Vote Processing, c/o Broadridge, 51 Mercedes Way, Edgewood, New York 11717.
If you hold your Vimeo shares through a broker, bank and/or other holder of record, follow the instructions that you receive from your broker, bank and/or other holder of record if you wish to change your vote or revoke your proxy.
Q:
What if I do not specify a choice for a matter when returning a proxy?
A:
If you sign and return a proxy card but do not give specific instructions on how your shares should be voted, the shares represented by your proxy card will be voted FOR the election of all director nominees, FOR the ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as Vimeo’s independent registered public accounting firm for the 2024 fiscal year, FOR the amendment of the Charter, and FOR the say on pay proposal, and in the discretion of the persons designated as proxies as to any other matter that may properly come before the Annual Meeting.

Vimeo, Inc. 2024 Proxy Statement   7

 
Separation of Vimeo and IAC
On May 25, 2021, we completed (i) the separation of Vimeo from IAC/InterActiveCorp (“IAC”) through a series of transactions that resulted in the transfer of IAC’s Vimeo business to Vimeo, Inc. (formerly named “Vimeo Holdings, Inc.”), and Vimeo becoming an independent, separately traded public company through a spin-off from IAC (the “Spin-off”); and (ii) the transactions contemplated by the Amended and Restated Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of March 12, 2021 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Vimeo, Stream Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vimeo, and Vimeo.com, Inc., a subsidiary of IAC formerly named “Vimeo, Inc.” ​(“Vimeo OpCo”). Following completion of the Spin-off, Vimeo’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share, began trading under the symbol “VMEO” on The Nasdaq Global Select Market (“Nasdaq”) on May 25, 2021.
As used in this proxy statement, “Vimeo,” “the Company,” “we,” “our,” “us” and similar terms refer to Vimeo OpCo with respect to any period prior to the Spin-off and to Vimeo, Inc. with respect to any period following the Spin-off.

Forward-looking statements are based on our management’s beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Actual results could differ materially from those contained in or implied by these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to:

we have a history of losses,

our prior rapid growth may not be indicative of future performance, and our revenue has declined,

our limited operating history as a pure software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) company and our limited history of selling such plans through our sales force,

our total addressable market may prove to be smaller than we expect,

our ability to read data and make forecasts may be limited,

we may not have the right product/market fit and may not be able to attract free users or paid subscribers,

we may not be able to convert our free users into subscribers,

competition in our market is intense,

we may not be able to scale our business effectively,

we may need additional funding as we continue to grow our business,

the use or capabilities of artificial intelligence in our offerings may result in reputational harm and liability,

we may experience service interruptions,

hosting and delivery costs may increase unexpectedly,

weakened global economic conditions may harm our industry, business and results of operations,

our business involves hosting large quantities of user content,

we have been sued for hosting content that allegedly infringed on a third-party copyright,

we may face liability for hosting a variety of tortious or unlawful materials,

we have faced negative publicity for removing, or declining to remove, certain content, regardless of whether such content violated any law,

we collect, store and process large amounts of content and personal information and any loss of or unauthorized access to such data could materially impact our business,

if our business becomes constrained by changing legal and regulatory requirements, including with respect to privacy, data security and data protection, consumer protection, and user-generated content, or enforcement by government regulators, including fines, orders or consent decrees in the U.S. or other jurisdictions in which we operate, our operating results will suffer,

we may experience a disruption of our business activities due to senior executive transitions,

we have been the target of cyberattacks by malicious actors,

we have faced claims that we infringe third-party intellectual property rights, and

the risks described in the section titled “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in our 2023 Annual Report.
Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risk factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for our management to predict all risk factors nor can we assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ from those contained in, or implied by, any forward-looking statements.

Proposal 1
The Board recommends that our stockholders vote FOR the election of all director nominees.
Election of Directors
Proposal and Vote Required
At the upcoming Annual Meeting, a board of eight directors will be elected, each to hold office until the next succeeding annual meeting of stockholders or until such director’s successor shall have been duly elected and qualified (or, if earlier, such director’s removal or resignation from our Board). Information concerning director nominees, all of whom are incumbent directors of Vimeo and have been recommended by the Board or a committee thereof for re-election, appears below. Although management does not anticipate that any of the persons named below will be unable or unwilling to stand for election, in the event of such an occurrence, proxies may be voted for a substitute designated by the Board.
The election of each of Adam Gross, Alesia J. Haas, Mo Koyfman, Glenn H. Schiffman, Alexander von Furstenberg and Philip Moyer as directors requires the affirmative vote of a plurality of the total number of votes cast by the holders of shares of Vimeo capital stock voting together as a single class, with each share of common stock and Class B common stock representing the right to one and ten vote(s), respectively.
The Board has designated Jay Herratti and Ida Kane as nominees for those positions on the Board to be elected by the holders of Vimeo common stock voting as a separate class.

Corporate Governance
Leadership Structure. Our business and affairs are overseen by our Board, which currently has eight members. There is one management representative on the Board and, of the seven remaining current directors, five directors have been determined by our Board to be independent. In accordance with the rules of the SEC and the Marketplace Rules of The Nasdaq Stock Market, LLC (the “Marketplace Rules”), although Mr. Gross was not considered independent while serving in his capacity as Interim Chief Executive Officer, the Board has determined that Mr. Gross qualifies as an independent director effective as of the end of his interim service period. The Board has standing Audit, Compensation and Human Capital Management and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committees (collectively, the “Board Committees”), each comprised solely of independent directors. For more information regarding director independence and our Board Committees, see the discussion under “Director Independence” and “The Board and Board Committees” below. All of our directors play an active role in Board matters, are encouraged to communicate among themselves and directly with the Chief Executive Officer and have full access to Company management at all times.
Our independent directors meet in scheduled executive sessions without management present from time to time, and may schedule additional meetings as they deem appropriate. We do not have a lead independent director or any other formally appointed leader for these sessions. The independent membership of our Board Committees ensures that directors with no ties to Company management are charged with oversight for all financial reporting and executive compensation-related decisions made by Company management, as well as for recommending candidates for Board membership. At each regularly scheduled Board meeting, the Chairperson of each of these committees (as and if applicable) provides the full Board with an update of all significant matters discussed, reviewed, considered and/or approved by the relevant committee since the last regularly scheduled Board meeting.
Mr. Schiffman has served as Chairman of the Board since March 2023. Mr. Schiffman brings significant experience and expertise to his role as Chairman, including his knowledge of Vimeo’s business and history through his experience as Chief Financial Officer of IAC (in which capacity he also had certain risk oversight duties that give him particular insight into risk management), his high level of financial literacy and expertise regarding mergers, acquisitions, investments and other strategic transactions, his information security oversight duties at both IAC and Fanatics, which give him particular insight into information security risks and trends, as well as his investment banking experience, which gives him particular insight into trends in capital markets and the technology and media industries. The roles of Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer are currently separated in recognition of the differences between the two roles. We believe that it is in the best interests of our stockholders for the Board to make a determination regarding the separation or combination of these roles each time it elects a new Chairperson or appoints a Chief Executive Officer, based on the relevant facts and circumstances applicable at such time.
Risk Oversight. Company management is responsible for assessing and managing the Company’s exposure to various risks on a day-to-day basis, which responsibilities include the creation of appropriate risk management programs and policies. Company management has developed and implemented guidelines and policies to identify, assess and manage significant risks facing the Company. In developing this framework, the Company recognized that leadership and success are impossible without taking risks; however, the imprudent acceptance of risks or the failure to appropriately identify and mitigate risks could adversely impact stockholder value. The Board is responsible for overseeing Company management in the execution of its responsibilities and for assessing the Company’s approach to risk management. The Board exercises these responsibilities periodically as part of its meetings and through discussions with Company management, as well as through the Board’s Audit and Compensation and Human Capital Management Committees, which examine various components of financial and compensation-related risks, respectively, as part of their responsibilities. Information security is a key component of risk management at Vimeo and our senior management periodically briefs the Audit Committee on the information security programs of the Company and its various businesses and related priorities and controls. In addition, an overall review of risks is inherent in the Board’s consideration of the Company’s long-term strategies and in the transactions and other matters presented to the Board, including significant capital expenditures, acquisitions and divestitures and financial matters. The Board’s role in risk oversight of the Company is consistent with the Company’s leadership structure, with the Chairperson, Chief Executive Officer and other members of senior management having responsibility for assessing and managing the Company’s risk exposure, and the Board and
 
   
[MISSING IMAGE: lg_vsquare-4c.jpg]
Vimeo, Inc. 2024 Proxy Statement   15

 
its committees providing oversight in connection with those efforts. Vimeo believes that its compensation policies and programs do not encourage excessive or unnecessary risk-taking and are not reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on Vimeo.
Director Independence. Under the Marketplace Rules, our Board has a responsibility to make an affirmative determination that those members of the Board who serve as independent directors do not have any relationships that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. In connection with the independence determinations described below, our Board reviewed information regarding transactions, relationships and arrangements relevant to independence, including those required by the Marketplace Rules. This information is obtained from director responses to questionnaires circulated by our management, as well as from our records and publicly available information. Following these determinations, our management monitors those transactions, relationships and arrangements that were relevant to such determinations, as well as periodically solicits updated information potentially relevant to independence from internal personnel and directors, to determine whether there have been any developments that could potentially have an adverse impact on prior independence determinations.
Our Board has determined that each of Adam Gross, Alesia J. Haas, Jay Herratti, Ida Kane, and Mo Koyfman satisfy the director independence requirements set forth in the Marketplace Rules, and that the members of the Audit and Compensation and Human Capital Management Committees also satisfied separate independence requirements under the standards imposed by applicable SEC rules and the Marketplace Rules for audit committee and compensation committee members. Our Board had previously determined that Nabil Mallick and Spike Lee, who served as members of our Board through October 2023 and February 2024, respectively, also satisfied the director independence requirements set forth in the Marketplace Rules.
Director Nominations and Board Diversity. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee identifies, reviews and evaluates individuals qualified to become Board members and recommends candidates to the Board. While there are no specific requirements for eligibility to serve as a director of Vimeo, in evaluating candidates, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will consider (regardless of how the candidate was identified or recommended) whether the professional and personal ethics and values of the candidate are consistent with those of Vimeo, whether the candidate’s experience and expertise would be beneficial to the Board, whether the candidate is willing and able to devote the necessary time and energy to the work of the Board and whether the candidate is prepared and qualified to represent the best interests of Vimeo’s stockholders. While the Board does not have a formal diversity policy, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee also considers the overall diversity of the experiences, characteristics, attributes, skills and backgrounds of candidates relative to those of other Board members and those represented by the Board as a whole to ensure that the Board has the right mix of skills, expertise and background.
The members of our Board have provided the diversity information below as of the date of this proxy statement. Each of the categories listed in the table below has the meaning as it is used in Marketplace Rule 5605(f).

The Board does not have a formal policy regarding the consideration of director nominees recommended by stockholders, and as of the date of this proxy statement we have not received any such recommendations. However, the Board would consider such recommendations if made in the future. Stockholders who wish to make such a recommendation should send the recommendation to Vimeo, Inc., 330 West 34th Street, 5th Floor, New York, New York 10001, Attention: General Counsel & Secretary. The envelope must contain a clear notation that the enclosed letter is a “Director Nominee Recommendation.” The letter must identify the author as a stockholder, provide a brief summary of the candidate’s qualifications and history, together with an indication that the recommended individual would be willing to serve (if elected), and must be accompanied by evidence of the sender’s stock ownership. Any director recommendations will be reviewed by the Secretary and the Chairperson and, if deemed appropriate, forwarded to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee for further review. If the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee believes that the candidate fits the profile of a director described above, the recommendation will be shared with the entire Board.
Communications with the Vimeo Board. Stockholders who wish to communicate with our Board or a particular director may send any such communication to Vimeo, Inc., 330 West 34th Street, 5th Floor, New York, New York 10001, Attention: General Counsel & Secretary. The mailing envelope must contain a clear notation indicating that the enclosed letter is a “Stockholder—Board Communication” or “Stockholder—Director Communication.” All such letters must identify the author as a stockholder, provide evidence of the sender’s stock ownership and clearly state whether the intended recipients are all members of the Board or a particular director or directors. The Secretary will then review such correspondence and forward it to the Board, or to the specified director(s), if appropriate. Items unrelated to directors’ duties and responsibilities may be excluded, including solicitations and advertisements.
Code of Conduct
Our Board has adopted a Code of Conduct that applies to all of our employees, officers and directors, including our Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and other executive and senior financial officers. The Code of Conduct is a “code of ethics,” as defined in Item 406(b) of Regulation S-K. The full text of our Code of Conduct is posted on the Governance portion of our website at https://investors.vimeo.com/governance/documents.

Committee maintains free and open communication among its members, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, the Company’s internal audit function and Company management. The formal report of the Audit Committee is set forth on page 21.
Our Board has determined that each of Mses. Haas and Kane, and Mr. Herratti, are independent directors under the Marketplace Rules and the additional independence standards applicable to audit committee members established pursuant to Rule 10A-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The Board has concluded that Mses. Haas and Kane are each an “audit committee financial expert,” as such term is defined in applicable SEC rules and the Marketplace Rules.
Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee. The Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee consists of Mo Koyfman (chair) and Jay Herratti. The Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee functions pursuant to a written charter adopted by the Board, the most recent version of which is available on the Governance portion of our website at https://investors.vimeo.com/governance/documents. The Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee is appointed by the Board to discharge the Board’s responsibilities relating to the compensation of non-employee directors and executive officers and has overall responsibility for approving and evaluating all compensation plans, policies and programs of Vimeo as they affect Vimeo’s executive officers and non-employee directors. Additionally, the Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee is responsible for overseeing Vimeo’s culture and human capital management, including diversity and inclusion. The Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee may form and delegate authority to subcommittees consisting of one or more of its members. The Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee may also delegate to one or more of the Company’s executive officers the authority to make grants of awards of equity-based compensation to eligible individuals (other than directors or executive officers) and has done so. From January 1, 2023 through September 20, 2023, the Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee engaged Compensation Advisory Partners LLC (“CAP”) to serve as its compensation consultant, and since August 29, 2023, the Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee has engaged Semler Brossy Consulting Group LLC (“Semler Brossy”) to serve as its compensation consultant and to review and advise on the principal aspects of the Company’s executive compensation program. The executive compensation services provided by CAP in 2023 included, among other things, providing peer and public survey data regarding compensation opportunities for executive officers, reviewing our executive compensation and general employee equity compensation philosophy, and assisting in the implementation of and providing peer and public survey data regarding stock ownership guidelines. The executive compensation services of Semler Brossy in 2023 included, among other things, providing recommendations regarding the selection of compensation peer group companies, analyzing publicly available compensation data of peer group companies, compensation survey data, and other publicly available data to assess the competitive market for executive talent, and reviewing and advising on the target total direct compensation opportunities for our executive officers. In compliance with the disclosure requirements of the SEC regarding the independence of compensation consultants, the Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee has assessed each of the six independence factors established by the SEC and adopted by Nasdaq, and has determined that the engagement of, and work performed by, each of CAP and Semler Brossy does not raise any conflicts of interest or similar concerns. Semler Brossy reports, and CAP reported, directly to the Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee and neither consultant provides any non-compensation related services to the Company. Semler Brossy and, previously, CAP, attends certain Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee meetings, executive sessions and preparatory meetings with the Committee Chair and certain executive officers, as requested by the Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee. For additional information on our processes and procedures for the consideration and determination of executive compensation and the related roles of the Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee, Company management and consultants, see the “Executive Compensation—​Compensation Discussion and Analysis” beginning on page 28. The formal report of the Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee is set forth under Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee Report.
Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee consists of Alesia J. Haas and Mo Koyfman. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee functions pursuant to a written charter adopted by the Board, the most recent version of which is available on the Governance portion of our website at https://investors.vimeo.com/governance/documents.

Proposal 2
The Board recommends that our stockholders vote FOR the ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young as Vimeo’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2024.
Ratification of Appointment of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
Subject to stockholder ratification, the Audit Committee of Vimeo’s Board has appointed Ernst & Young LLP (“Ernst & Young”) as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2024.
The Audit Committee annually evaluates the performance of Ernst & Young and determines whether to continue to retain such firm or consider the retention of another firm. In appointing Ernst & Young as our independent registered public accounting firm for the 2024 fiscal year, the Audit Committee considered: (i) the firm’s performance as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, (ii) the fact that Ernst & Young has audited the financial statements of Vimeo since it was a wholly-owned subsidiary of IAC, (iii) Ernst & Young’s independence with respect to the services to be performed for the Company and (iv) Ernst & Young’s strong and considerable qualifications and general reputation for adherence to professional auditing standards. In addition, in conjunction with the mandated rotation of the lead engagement partner every five years, the Audit Committee is directly involved in the selection of the new lead engagement partner.
A representative of Ernst & Young is expected to be present at the Annual Meeting and will be given an opportunity to make a statement if he or she so chooses and will be available to respond to appropriate questions.
Vote Required
Ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young as Vimeo’s independent registered public accounting firm requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the voting power of the shares of Vimeo capital stock present at the Annual Meeting in person or represented by proxy and voting together as a single class.

Audit Committee Matters
Audit Committee Report
The Audit Committee functions pursuant to a written charter adopted by the Board of Directors, the most recent version of which is available on the Company’s website at https://investors.vimeo.com/governance/documents. The Audit Committee charter governs the operations of the Audit Committee and sets forth its responsibilities, which include providing assistance to the Board of Directors in monitoring: (i) the integrity of Vimeo’s financial statements, (ii) the effectiveness of Vimeo’s internal control over financial reporting, (iii) the qualifications, performance and independence of Vimeo’s independent registered public accounting firm, (iv) the performance of Vimeo’s internal audit function, (v) Vimeo’s risk assessment and risk management policies as they relate to financial and other risk exposures and (vi) Vimeo’s compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. It is not the duty of the Audit Committee to plan or conduct audits or to determine that Vimeo’s financial statements and disclosures are complete, accurate and have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and applicable rules and regulations or to determine that the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting are effective. Management is responsible for the Company’s financial reporting process, including systems of internal control over financial reporting. The independent registered public accountants are responsible for performing an independent audit of the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (the “PCAOB”), and to issue a report thereon. The Audit Committee’s responsibility is to engage the independent auditor and otherwise to monitor and oversee these processes.
In fulfilling its responsibilities, the Audit Committee has reviewed and discussed the audited consolidated financial statements of Vimeo included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 with Vimeo’s management and Ernst & Young, Vimeo’s independent registered public accounting firm.
The Audit Committee has discussed with Ernst & Young the matters required to be discussed by PCAOB Auditing Standard 1301, “Communications with Audit Committees.” In addition, the Audit Committee has received the written disclosures and letter from Ernst & Young required by applicable requirements of the PCAOB regarding Ernst & Young’s communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence and has discussed with Ernst & Young its independence from Vimeo and its management.
In reliance on the reviews and discussions referred to above, the Audit Committee recommended to the Board of Directors that the audited consolidated financial statements of Vimeo be included in Vimeo’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 for filing with the SEC.

Audit and Non-Audit Services Pre-Approval Policy
Our Audit Committee has established a policy governing our use of the services of our independent registered public accounting firm. Under this policy, the Audit Committee is required to pre-approve all audit and non-audit services performed by our independent registered public accounting firm in order to ensure that the provision of such services does not impair the public accountants’ independence.

Pursuant to the pre-approval policy, the Audit Committee may delegate its authority to grant pre-approvals to one or more of its members. The decisions of any other member(s) to whom such authority may be delegated to grant pre-approvals must be presented to the full Audit Committee at its next scheduled meeting.

Proposal 3
Approval of Amendment of the Vimeo, Inc. Certificate of Incorporation to Provide for Officer Exculpation as Permitted by Delaware Law
Background
Effective August 1, 2022, the State of Delaware amended Section 102(b)(7) of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”) to allow Delaware corporations to exculpate certain officers from personal liability for monetary damages for breaches of certain fiduciary duties as an officer. Prior to such amendment, Delaware law permitted Delaware corporations to exculpate directors from personal liability for monetary damages associated with breaches of the duty of care, but that protection did not extend to a Delaware corporation’s officers. Our stockholders are being asked to approve an amendment (the “Amendment”) to our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to include a provision therein that extends exculpation to certain officers of the Company, consistent with the amendment to Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL. The Amendment was approved by our Board on March 12, 2024, subject to approval by our stockholders at the Annual Meeting. We refer to this proposal as the “Exculpation Proposal.”
Why Stockholders Should Approve the Exculpation Proposal
In the absence of the exculpation of officers, and prior to the amendment to Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL, stockholder plaintiffs have often employed a tactic of bringing certain claims against individual officers that would otherwise be exculpated if brought against directors in order to avoid dismissal of such claims. The amendment to Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL addressed this inconsistent treatment between officers and directors and the related rising litigation and insurance costs for stockholders.
As amended, Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL permits exculpation of officers only for direct claims brought by stockholders for breach of an officer’s fiduciary duty of care, including class actions, and accordingly would not eliminate officers’ monetary liability for breach of fiduciary duty claims brought by the Company itself or for derivative claims brought by stockholders in the name of the Company. Furthermore, consistent with the protections currently afforded to our directors under Article IX of our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, the Amendment would not limit the liability of officers for (i) any breach of the duty of loyalty to the Company or our stockholders, (ii) any acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of the law, (iii) under Section 174 of the DGCL, or (iv) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit. Additionally, the Amendment would not limit the liability of officers for any action by or in the right of the Company. The Amendment will generally align the protections available to officers with those currently available to directors and will not be retroactive to any act or omission occurring prior to its effective date. Further, the exculpation afforded by the Amendment would only apply to certain officers, namely a person who (during the course of conduct alleged to be wrongful) (a) is or was president, chief executive officer, chief operating officer, chief financial officer, chief legal officer, controller, treasurer or chief accounting officer; (b) is or was identified in the Company’s public filings with the SEC as one of the most highly compensated executive officers of the Company; or (c) has, by written agreement with the Company, consented to be identified as an officer for purposes of accepting service of process.
The Board recommends that our stockholders vote FOR the approval of amendment of the Charter to provide for officer exculpation.

As part of our Board’s ongoing evaluation of the Company’s corporate governance practices, our Board considered the potential benefits and detriments of eliminating the personal liability of its officers under certain circumstances. After such consideration, our Board believes the Exculpation Proposal is (i) consistent with the protections currently afforded in our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to directors and (ii) necessary in order to continue to attract and retain experienced and qualified officers, which is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders. Our Board is not proposing the Exculpation Proposal in anticipation of any specific litigation confronting the Company. Rather, the Exculpation Proposal is being proposed on a prospective basis to help mitigate any potential future harm to the Company and its stockholders. Accordingly, our Board believes the Amendment is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.
The description of the proposal set forth above is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of Article IX of the proposed Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of Vimeo, Inc., as amended by the proposed amendments described herein (the “Restated Charter”), attached as Annex A to this proxy statement. For convenience of reference, the proposed changes described herein to the current Charter are included in Annex A as underlined text.
Vote Required
Amendment of the Charter requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Vimeo capital stock, voting together as a single class.

Proposal 4
The Board recommends that our stockholders vote FOR the advisory vote on the compensation of our named executive officers.
Advisory Vote on the Compensation of our Named Executive Officers (the “Say on Pay” Vote)
Pursuant to Section 14A of the Exchange Act, we are seeking a non-binding advisory vote from our stockholders to approve the compensation of our named executive officers for 2023. This proposal, which we refer to as the “say on pay” vote, is not intended to address any specific item of compensation, but rather our overall compensation program and policies relating to our named executive officers.
As described in detail in the “Compensation Discussion and Analysis” section of this proxy statement, our executive compensation program is designed to increase long-term stockholder value by attracting, retaining, motivating and rewarding leaders with the competence, character, experience and ambition necessary to enable us to meet our growth objectives. We believe that our executive compensation program is designed to motivate experienced executives to achieve short-term and long-term goals, thereby enhancing stockholder value, and to retain individuals with the skills necessary for us to achieve our business plans. Accordingly, we believe that the compensation paid to our named executive officers in 2023 pursuant to our executive compensation program was fair and appropriate and are asking our stockholders to vote FOR the adoption of the following resolution:
RESOLVED, that Vimeo, Inc. stockholders approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation of Vimeo’s named executive officers for 2023, as disclosed in this proxy statement, pursuant to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s compensation disclosure rules, including the Compensation Discussion and Analysis, the Executive Compensation tables and the related narrative discussion.”
This is the first non-binding advisory vote on say on pay that we are seeking, which is being held prior to the three-year anniversary of the Spin-off. The Company sought an advisory vote from its stockholders on the frequency of seeking the say on pay vote at the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and recommended seeking the say on pay vote every year. Based on voting results from the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, and consistent with the Company’s recommendation, say on pay votes will now occur every year. Accordingly, the next say on pay vote is expected to be held at our 2025 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
Vote Required
The approval, on an advisory basis, of the say on pay proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of at least a majority of the aggregate voting power of shares of Vimeo capital stock present in person or represented by proxy and voting together as a single class. The vote is advisory in nature and therefore not binding on Vimeo or our Board. However, our Board values the opinions of all of its stockholders and will consider the outcome of this vote when making future compensation decisions for our named executive officers.

Executive Compensation
Compensation Discussion and Analysis
Introduction
The executive officers whose compensation is discussed in this compensation discussion and analysis (the “CD&A”), and who are referred to as our named executive officers (the “NEOs”) in this CD&A, are:

Adam Gross, former Interim Chief Executive Officer (from September 1, 2023 through April 8, 2024)

Gillian Munson, Chief Financial Officer

Anjali Sud, former Chief Executive Officer (through August 31, 2023)

Eric Cox, former Chief Operating Officer (through November 3, 2023)

Mark Kornfilt, former President (through March 31, 2023)
In 2023, the Company experienced a number of executive leadership transitions. Effective March 31, 2023, Mr. Kornfilt resigned as Vimeo’s President and remained as a strategic Board advisor through July 12, 2023. Effective August 31, 2023, Ms. Sud resigned as Vimeo’s Chief Executive Officer, and, from September 1, 2023 through April 8, 2024, Mr. Gross served as Vimeo’s Interim Chief Executive Officer. Lastly, effective November 3, 2023, Mr. Cox resigned as Vimeo’s Chief Operating Officer. In connection with these transitions, please see the related discussion regarding the treatment of 2023 bonuses for Ms. Sud and Messrs. Kornfilt, Gross and Cox under “Annual Cash Bonuses” below, and related discussion regarding the treatment of 2023 equity awards for Ms. Sud and Messrs. Kornfilt and Cox under “Long-Term Incentives” below.
On April 8, 2024, Mr. Moyer was appointed to serve as our Chief Executive Officer and a member of our Board. In connection with Mr. Moyer’s appointment, Mr. Moyer and the Company entered into an offer letter agreement that sets forth the terms and conditions of his employment with the Company. Pursuant to this agreement, Mr. Moyer will receive an annual base salary of  $600,000 and will be eligible for a discretionary annual bonus with a target bonus with a range of between 100% to 200% of his base salary. In addition, the Company will grant Mr. Moyer 1,680,439 restricted stock units. Additionally, Mr. Moyer will receive a sign-on bonus of  $300,000, which must be repaid to the Company if Mr. Moyer is terminated for cause or resigns for a reason other than for good reason before the one-year anniversary of his start date. If Mr. Moyer’s employment is terminated by the Company without cause or if Mr. Moyer terminates his employment with the Company for good reason, he will be entitled to certain severance benefits. Mr. Moyer has agreed to confidentiality, intellectual property, non-competition and non-solicitation covenants.
2023 Company Performance
We made good progress executing against our 2023 priorities in what was a transitional year for the Company. Total revenue was down 4% year-over-year, impacted by post-pandemic normalization as well as the depreciation of some of our acquired assets. Within that, Vimeo Enterprise revenue grew 44% year-over-year as video is becoming increasingly integral and strategic to how companies operate.
We made significant strides in improving profitability in 2023 through a reallocation of resources to more strategic growth opportunities and operational efficiency measures. Our gross margin increased 2 percentage points year-over-year to 78%, and we reduced operating expenses by 24% year-over-year. We reported net income of $22 million, an improvement of more than $100 million year-over-year, with non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of  $34 million, an improvement of more than $40 million year-over-year. We also saw net cash provided by operating activities improve by $75 million year-over-year to $38 million.
In addition, our 2023 burn rate was 3.8%, which was significantly lower than our 2022 burn rate of 8.6%. This material decrease shows our progress with respect to our commitment to our stockholders to materially decrease our burn rate in 2023 from 2022. We achieved this goal via a disciplined approach to our employee equity compensation program. Our three-year average burn rate at December 31, 2023 was 5.8%. We remain committed

Executive Compensation
to maintaining an appropriate burn rate in 2024, and continue to design our equity compensation program with a goal of managing burn rate while balancing the need to attract and retain top talent.
Certain of the financial measures described above are supplemental measures to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). For a further description of each non-GAAP financial measure set forth above as well as a full reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with GAAP, please see our 2023 Annual Report and Annex B.
Philosophy and Objectives
Our executive compensation program is designed to increase long-term stockholder value by attracting, retaining, motivating and rewarding leaders with the competence, character, experience and ambition necessary to enable us to meet our growth objectives.
Although we are a publicly traded company, we work to foster an entrepreneurial culture, and, within that culture, attract senior executives with entrepreneurial backgrounds, attitudes and aspirations. Accordingly, when working to recruit and retain executive officers, as well as other executives who may become executive officers at a later time, we compete not only with other public companies, but also with earlier stage companies, companies funded by private equity and venture capital and other professional firms. We structure our executive compensation program so that we can compete in this varied marketplace for talent, with an emphasis on variable, contingent compensation and long-term equity ownership. Vimeo has a unique position as an innovative, start-to-finish video platform working to change the way the world interacts with video. Vimeo, even as a public company, has many start-up-like tendencies. Because of this unique position, we aim to take a flexible approach to executive compensation.
When establishing a compensation package for a given executive, we follow a flexible approach and make decisions based on a number of factors particular to a given executive’s situation, including our firsthand experience with the competition for recruiting and retaining executives, negotiation and discussion with the relevant individual, competitive survey data, internal equity considerations and other factors we deem relevant at the time.
In line with our flexible approach, we refrain from using an arithmetic method for determining compensation levels and evaluating performance. Such methods frequently overlook the various factors influencing success at both the individual and the business level. Our objectives may change in priority as the competitive and strategic landscapes evolve, even within a single compensation cycle. Consequently, rigid formulaic approaches often lead to over- or under-compensation. Hence, we have historically steered clear of strict formulas, opting instead for a predominantly discretionary approach to compensation practices.
Roles and Responsibilities
The Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee of our Board (for purposes of this CD&A, the “Committee”) has the primary responsibility for establishing the compensation of our executive officers. For each of our NEOs, all compensation decisions referred to throughout this CD&A have been made by the Committee, based (in part) on recommendations from our former Chief Executive Officer and/or our former Interim Chief Executive Officer (in each case, other than with respect to their own compensation), as applicable, and in consultation with the Chairman of our Board, Mr. Schiffman. The Committee consists of Mr. Koyfman (Chair) and Mr. Herratti.
Our executive officers participate in structuring Company-wide compensation programs and in establishing bonus and equity pools for our employee population, excluding themselves. In early 2024, members of management, including Mr. Gross, Ms. Munson and Ms. Tracy, our General Counsel and Secretary, met with the Committee and discussed corporate and individual executive officer performance for 2023, including recommendations for annual bonuses. The Committee and Semler Brossy also met independently to discuss executive performance and corresponding bonuses, with input from the Chairman of our Board. Following these discussions, the Committee met to review and discuss these recommendations and to review the factors described below under “Annual Cash Bonuses”. After consideration of these recommendations, the Committee determined the annual bonus for each

Executive Compensation
NEO, other than Mr. Cox and Mr. Kornfilt as they were not eligible for bonuses with respect to 2023 due to their respective departures from the Company during 2023.
In establishing a given executive officer’s compensation package, each individual component was evaluated independently and in relation to the package as a whole. Prior earning histories, peer compensation, retention concerns, and outstanding long-term compensation arrangements as well as long-term holding power, in each case, to the extent applicable to the executive, were also reviewed and taken into account. However, the Committee did not rely on any formulaic relationship or targeted allocation between these elements. Instead, each individual executive officer’s situation is evaluated on a case-by-case basis each year, considering a variety of relevant factors at the time.
This year is the first time we are holding a say on pay vote. Based on the “say on frequency” voting results from the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, and consistent with our recommendation, say on pay votes will now occur every year. Accordingly, the next say on pay vote is expected to be held at our 2025 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. The Committee will consider the outcome of the say on pay vote when making future compensation decisions for our executive officers.
For the 2023 fiscal year, the Committee engaged CAP (from January 1, 2023 through September 20, 2023) and Semler Brossy (since August 29, 2023) to assist it with compensation matters and reviewing and advising on aspects of our executive compensation program. CAP’s services in 2023 included, among other things, providing peer and public survey data regarding compensation opportunities for executive officers, advising on the compensation package for the Chairman of the Board, reviewing our executive compensation and general employee equity compensation philosophy, and assisting in the implementation of and providing peer and public survey data regarding stock ownership guidelines. Semler Brossy’s services in 2023 included executive and non-employee director compensation assessment, equity compensation strategy, selection and analysis of compensation peer group companies and related data, and compensation risk assessment. Semler Brossy reports, and CAP previously reported, directly to the Committee. The Committee may replace Semler Brossy or engage additional consultants at any time. Generally, one or more representatives from Semler Brossy attend, and CAP previously attended, Committee meetings and communicate with the Chair of the Committee, as well as other Committee members, between meetings from time to time. Both Semler Brossy and CAP have no other business relationship with Vimeo and neither has received payments from Vimeo other than fees for services to the Committee. The Committee has assessed the independence of both Semler Brossy and CAP taking into account, among other things, the factors set forth under Rule 10C-1 of the Exchange Act and the listing standards of Nasdaq, and has concluded that no conflict of interest exists with respect to the work that Semler Brossy performs, and CAP previously performed, for the Committee.

2023 Compensation Peer Group
The Committee and management consider competitive market compensation paid by other peer group companies when reviewing and, in the case of the Committee, determining certain compensation elements of our executive

Executive Compensation
officers and non-employee directors. The Committee reviews our peer group annually. For 2023, the Committee engaged CAP to conduct an initial review and make recommendations regarding our peer group for the Committee’s consideration. The peer group was determined by reviewing public companies in the Application Software, Internet Services & Infrastructure, and Systems Software GICS sub-industries, and then comparing such companies against Vimeo as it relates to revenue, market cap, and business model.
In connection with the Committee’s approval of annual cash bonuses for our executive officers and the compensation package for the Chairman of the Board, which is discussed below in the sections titled “Annual Cash Bonuses” and “Director Compensation,” respectively, data regarding compensation for comparable executive officer and non-executive chair positions at the following peer companies were considered:
Alteryx, Inc. New Relic, Inc.
AppFolio, Inc. PagerDuty, Inc.
Asana, Inc. Smartsheet Inc.
Box, Inc. Wix.com Ltd.
BigCommerce Holdings, Inc. Workiva Inc.
Domo, Inc. Yext, Inc.
Elastic N.V. Zuora, Inc.
Momentive Global Inc.
Compensation Elements
Our compensation packages for our executive officers primarily consist of salary, annual bonuses, equity awards and, in certain limited instances, perquisites and other benefits. Prior to making specific decisions related to any particular element of compensation, the Committee typically reviews the total direct compensation of each executive, evaluating the executive’s total near-term and long-term compensation in the aggregate. The Committee then determines which element or combination of elements (salary, annual bonus and/or equity awards) can be used most effectively to further our compensation objectives. However, all such decisions are subjective and are made on a facts and circumstances basis without any prescribed relationship between the various elements of the total compensation package.
Base Salaries
We provide each named executive officer with a base salary, reflective of the competitive marketplace, for the services that the named executive officer performs for us. Base salary serves as the primary form of fixed compensation for our named executive officers. Base salaries are reviewed annually and may be increased based on the individual performance of the named executive officer, company performance, the executive’s position within our business, the scope of his or her responsibilities, and market practices. Annual base salaries for 2023 for Msses. Sud and Munson and Messrs. Gross, Kornfilt, and Cox were $600,000, $400,000, $600,000, $450,000, and $400,000, respectively. Mr. Gross’ base salary as Interim Chief Executive Officer was set at the same level as Ms. Sud’s base salary at the time of her departure. None of our NEOs’ base salaries were increased from 2022 to 2023, except that Mr. Cox received a salary increase from $350,000 to $400,000 in connection with his promotion from Chief Revenue Officer to Chief Operating Officer in March 2023.
Annual Cash Bonuses
Annual cash bonuses for our named executive officers are generally discretionary and are determined by the Committee. The determination of bonus amounts is generally based on a non-formulaic assessment of factors that vary from year to year, none of which have a pre-established weighting. In determining individual annual bonus amounts, a variety of factors regarding Vimeo’s overall performance are considered, such as Adjusted EBITDA,
 
32   Vimeo, Inc. 2024 Proxy Statement
[MISSING IMAGE: lg_vsquare-4c.jpg]
   

Executive Compensation
bookings, growth in profitability or achievement of strategic objectives, an individual executive’s performance and contribution to Vimeo, and bonus targets previously established between Vimeo and the executive. Additionally, the Committee considers retention concerns and the long-term holding power of compensation packages. Executive officer bonuses tend to be highly variable from year-to-year depending on the performance of the Company and, in certain circumstances, individual executive officer performance.
For the discretionary 2023 bonus for Msses. Sud and Munson and Mr. Gross, the Committee considered a variety of factors, including, among others, the Company’s level of Adjusted EBITDA attained for 2023, 2023 bookings, the general operation of the Company, macroeconomic conditions, relative contributions made by and roles and responsibilities of each executive officer during the year, the relative size of the bonus amounts paid to other members of leadership at Vimeo, compensation levels compared against levels for comparable positions at the peer group companies described above, retention and motivational concerns in light of the number of executive transitions at the Company, and the recommendations of the Chairman of the Board and the former Interim Chief Executive Officer (other than for Mr. Gross’ own bonus). Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as described in Annex B.
While the Committee believes a discretionary bonus is generally appropriate for Vimeo at this stage of its growth because it allows the Committee the ability to take into account all factors, both positive and negative, that impact the Company, in March 2023, the Committee awarded a non-discretionary bonus to Ms. Sud in order to provide a competitive compensation package while minimizing ongoing burn rate and overhang in connection with equity grants. Ms. Sud’s 2023 non-discretionary bonus opportunity had a target payout of  $800,000 upon the achievement of pre-established performance measures (the “Non-Discretionary Bonus”). The Non-Discretionary Bonus required at least 85% achievement of both (i) 2023 revenue of  $425 million and (ii) 2023 Adjusted EBITDA of $11.5 million. If both conditions were met at a level between 85% and 100%, the payout factor would be a straight line interpolation between 50% and 100%. Upon Ms. Sud’s departure from the Company and Mr. Gross’ appointment as Interim Chief Executive Officer, the Company determined to award two-thirds of the Non-Discretionary Bonus to Ms. Sud and one-third of the Non-Discretionary Bonus to Mr. Gross, if earned.
The table below details 2023 bonus targets, actual bonuses, and considerations of the Committee in determining actual bonuses for Msses. Sud and Munson and Mr. Gross. NEO bonuses for 2023 are reported in the 2023 Summary Compensation Table below. Other than as described below due to leadership departures and transitions, 2023 target bonuses for our NEOs did not change from 2022.

Long-Term Incentives
Due to our entrepreneurial philosophy, we believe that providing a meaningful equity stake in our business is essential to create compensation opportunities that can compete, on a risk-adjusted basis, with the wide range of entrepreneurial employment alternatives in the competitive market. In addition, we believe that ownership shapes behavior and, that by providing compensation in the form of equity awards, we align executive officer incentives with stockholder interests in a manner that drives superior performance over time.
Although we do not have a formal policy with respect to the grant of equity incentive awards to our named executive officers, we believe that equity grants provide our executives with a strong link to our long-term performance, create an ownership culture, and help to align the interests of our executives and our stockholders. In addition, we believe that equity grants with a time-based vesting schedule promote executive retention by incentivizing our executive officers to remain in our employment during the relevant vesting period. Further, we believe that the use of awards with time-based vesting is a common practice at companies at our stage of maturity as a public company. In 2023, the Committee also determined to grant equity awards to certain executives with market-based conditions, requiring both stock price appreciation and a three-year performance period, in order to create further alignment with the long-term interests of our stockholders.
In determining the size of equity awards for an executive officer for any given period, the Committee reviews and evaluates on an individual-by-individual basis the amount of outstanding unvested and/or unexercised equity awards, as well as previously earned or exercised equity awards. In setting award levels, the predominant factors considered by the Committee are providing the executive officer with effective retention incentives, an appropriate reward for past performance, incentives for strong future performance, and competitive market practices. The

Executive Compensation
annual corporate performance factors relevant to determining individual bonus amounts, while considered, are generally less relevant in determining the type and level of equity awards, as equity awards tend to be more forward-looking, and are a longer-term retention and reward instrument relative to annual bonuses. Since completion of the Spin-off, the primary long-term incentives for our NEOs have been restricted stock unit (“RSU”) awards.
In 2023, the Committee granted (i) 146,641 RSUs to Mr. Gross upon his appointment as Interim Chief Executive Officer, with such RSUs vesting monthly in equal installments over a twelve-month period, (ii) market-based RSUs to Mr. Cox with a base of 720,000 RSUs, and (iii) market-based RSUs to Ms. Munson with a base of 500,000 RSUs. With respect to the market-based RSU awards for Mr. Cox and Ms. Munson, the number of RSUs earned is subject to upward or downward adjustment from 50% to 200% of the base number of RSUs, based on (i) for the first three tranches, a “payout factor,” calculated as (a) the volume-weighted average of the closing price of the Company’s common stock for the twenty (20) trading days immediately preceding the applicable vesting date divided by (b) $4.00 and (ii) for the true-up tranche, if the payout factor for the third tranche exceeds the payout factor for the first or second tranches, (a) the number of vested RSUs for each applicable tranche, recalculated using the payout factor for the third tranche, less (b) the number of previously-vested RSUs for the applicable tranche. The first three tranches of market-based RSUs vest annually, and the final, true-up tranche vests along with the third tranche. The 2023 RSU award for Mr. Cox was forfeited in its entirety upon his departure from the Company.
Ms. Sud’s Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement, dated March 25, 2022, (the “Original Award Agreement”) was amended and restated in March 2023 (as amended, the “March 2023 RSU Award”) to revise the vesting schedule and performance targets of the Original Award Agreement. The stock performance-based condition would be deemed satisfied upon the Company’s common stock reaching certain price targets, calculated on a 20-day volume weighted average price basis during the prescribed measurement period. The time-based condition would be deemed satisfied subject to Ms. Sud’s continuous employment by the Company through March 25, 2024 and March 25, 2025. The March 2023 RSU Award for Ms. Sud was forfeited in its entirety upon Ms. Sud’s departure from the Company.
Our practice has been to schedule Committee meetings at which equity awards are to be granted to NEOs well in advance of  (and without regard to) the timing of the release of earnings or other material information.
In connection with the departure of Mr. Kornfilt from his role as President of the Company, and in consideration for his transition services provided to the Company, the Company modified the vesting conditions for Mr. Kornfilt’s March 2021 RSU award, pursuant to which the awards became fully vested as of March 31, 2023.
Clawback Policy
In accordance with Rule 10D-1 of the Exchange Act and the listing standards of Nasdaq, in 2023, we adopted the Vimeo, Inc. Policy for Recoupment of Incentive Compensation (“Clawback Policy”).
Our Clawback Policy, which is administered and enforced by the Committee, requires the Company to recover certain incentive-based compensation received by current or former Section 16 officers of the Company (as such term is defined in the Exchange Act) in the event of an accounting restatement resulting from material noncompliance with any financial reporting requirements under the federal securities laws. Our Clawback Policy is filed as Exhibit 97.1 to our 2023 Annual Report.
Stock Ownership Guidelines
In 2023, we formally adopted Stock Ownership Guidelines, designed to encourage our Section 16 officers and our non-employee directors to maintain a material personal financial stake in Vimeo to promote a long-term perspective in managing the business and to align stockholder, executive and director interests.
Our Section 16 officers are required to own a number of shares of our common stock with an aggregate value equal to a specified multiple of their annual base salary as follows:
Position
Multiple of Annual Base Salary
Chief Executive Officer
5x
Other Section 16 Officers
3x
 
   
[MISSING IMAGE: lg_vsquare-4c.jpg]
Vimeo, Inc. 2024 Proxy Statement   35

Executive Compensation
In addition, under the guidelines, our non-employee directors are encouraged to hold shares of our common stock with an aggregate value of at least five times (5x) the value of their annual cash retainer, excluding additional retainers paid for specific leadership roles or for serving as a member or chair of a committee.
Shares counted toward the ownership requirement include shares beneficially owned directly or indirectly by the individual or immediate family members residing in the same household, shares held in qualified plans, deferred shares or deferred share units pursuant to our Deferred Compensation Plan for Non-Employee Directors, and RSUs (whether or not vested, except as described below). Shares underlying stock options and stock appreciation rights (“SARs”), whether or not vested, and RSUs that remain subject to the achievement of performance goals, do not count toward meeting stock ownership levels. Individuals are required to meet these ownership requirements within five years of the later of  (i) July 26, 2023 (the date the guidelines became effective) or (ii) becoming a Section 16 officer or non-employee director, as applicable.
Compliance with the minimum stock ownership requirements is monitored and determined periodically by our management, and reported to the Committee.
Change in Control and Severance Benefits
Each of our NEOs, other than Mr. Gross, is, or was prior to their termination of employment with us, entitled to severance payments and benefits under his or her employment agreement upon a termination of employment in certain circumstances. In addition, our Vimeo, Inc. 2021 Stock and Annual Incentive Plan (including an Israeli Appendix), amended and restated as of June 6, 2023 (the “2021 Plan”) provides for “double-trigger” protection with respect to equity awards granted under this plan. These agreements and benefits assist us in attracting and retaining our executive officers, including in the event of a potential change in control. For a description of these agreements and benefits, please see “Estimated Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control.” For a description of the agreements entered into with Ms. Sud and Mr. Kornfilt in connection with their terminations of employment during 2023, please see “Narrative Disclosure to Summary Compensation Table and Grants of Plan-Based Awards Table.”
Employee Benefits and Perquisites
For the year ended December 31, 2023, Vimeo employees, including our NEOs, were eligible to participate in the Vimeo Retirement Savings Plan (the “Vimeo Plan”) in the United States, which is a tax-qualified plan under Section 401(k) of the Internal Revenue Code. Under the Vimeo Plan, participating employees may contribute up to 50% of their pre-tax earnings, subject to IRS limits. The employer match under the Vimeo Plan is 100% of the first 10% of a participant’s eligible earnings, capped at $10,000 annually. Matching contributions are invested in the same manner as each participant’s voluntary contributions in the investment options provided under the Vimeo Plan.
We currently provide a range of broad-based benefit plans, including comprehensive health, dental, vision and retirement benefits. In the U.S., we also offer a $1,000 bonus to new biological parents upon birth of a child.
In 2023, none of our NEOs received additional perquisites, other than Mr. Kornfilt. As previously disclosed, in 2022, we agreed to cover certain tax registration fees for Mr. Kornfilt in an amount up to $20,000, in connection with Mr. Kornfilt’s move to Switzerland where Vimeo does not maintain a permanent office. Upon conclusion of Mr. Kornfilt’s work with Deloitte & Touche LLP, there was an additional amount due for such tax registration fees of  $20,759, which the Company paid after Mr. Kornfilt’s departure in 2023.
Hedging Policy
Our Board has adopted an insider trading policy, which prohibits our directors, officers, employees and other covered persons from hedging or similar transactions designed to decrease the risks associated with holding our common stock.
Compensation Risk Assessment
The Committee regularly reviews our compensation policies and practices, including the risks created by our compensation plans, and has concluded that any risks arising from our compensation policies and practices are not reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company.

1.
On August 31, 2023, Ms. Sud resigned as our Chief Executive Officer, and was no longer an executive officer of the Company as of such time. Ms. Sud was succeeded by Mr. Gross as our Interim Chief Executive Officer on September 1, 2023. Mr. Gross’ 2023 base salary in the table above is a prorated amount to reflect his September start date. Mr. Gross’ annualized 2023 base salary was $600,000.
2.
On November 3, 2023, Mr. Cox resigned as our Chief Operating Officer, and was no longer an executive officer of the Company as of such time.
3.
On March 31, 2023, Mr. Kornfilt resigned as our President, and was no longer an executive officer of the Company as of such time.
4.
For each named executive officer, the amounts in the table above reflect discretionary annual cash bonuses. 2021 bonuses were paid in 2022, 2022 bonuses were paid in 2023, and 2023 bonuses were paid in 2024. Mr. Gross did not have a target bonus, but received a discretionary cash bonus of  $100,000 for 2023, in consideration of his time served as the Company’s Interim Chief Executive Officer and the significant efforts Mr. Gross has undertaken to lead the Company’s strategy and transition.
5.
Messrs. Cox and Kornfilt received no bonus for 2023 due to mid-year departures.
6.
Reflects the grant date fair value of RSU awards granted to (i) Mr. Gross ($599,762), Ms. Munson ($2,901,665, based on the base number of RSUs), and Mr. Cox ($4,178,400, based on the base number of RSUs) during 2023 denominated in the equity of Vimeo (“Vimeo RSUs”), (ii) Ms. Munson ($10,587,588) and Mr. Kornfilt ($1,977,627) during 2022 denominated as Vimeo RSUs and (iii) Ms. Sud ($14,999,266) and Mr. Kornfilt ($11,999,413) during 2021 denominated in the equity of Vimeo OpCo (“Vimeo OpCo RSUs”). In addition, reflects the grant date fair value of Vimeo RSU awards granted to Mr. Gross ($189,331) in 2023 which were awarded to him as a director on our Board prior to his appointment as Interim Chief Executive Officer (See “Director Compensation” below). The grant date fair value of each Vimeo RSU was determined by multiplying the number of underlying shares of the Vimeo RSU by the closing stock price of Vimeo common stock on the date of grant. The grant date fair value of each Vimeo OpCo RSU award was determined by reference to the pre-money valuation of Vimeo OpCo’s January 2021 primary equity raise (described in our 2023 Annual Report), which was the most recently completed equity transaction prior to the grant-date between Vimeo OpCo and unrelated third parties. For information about the weighted-average grant date fair value of RSUs, see Note 11 to our consolidated financial statements included in our 2023 Annual Report. The Vimeo OpCo RSUs were converted into Vimeo RSUs with respect to Vimeo common stock in the Spin-off and associated merger of Vimeo entities. Such amounts for 2021 also reflect non-cash modification charges for Ms. Sud ($315,953) and Mr. Kornfilt ($252,797) related to adjustments to their Vimeo OpCo RSU awards made in connection with the Spin-off and Vimeo merger. Such amounts for 2022 also reflect non-cash modification charges for Mr. Kornfilt ($1,211,992) related to adjustments to his March 2021 RSU award made in connection with his departure and the related acceleration of such RSU award in March 2023. With respect to Ms. Sud, such amount for 2023 reflects a non-cash modification charge ($2,178,116) in connection with the March 2023 RSU Award. No other non-cash modification charges were made with respect to the 2023 awards reflected in the table. With respect to Ms. Sud in 2022, reflects the grant date fair value of RSU awards granted to Ms. Sud ($7,184,861) during 2022 for which vesting is subject to the achievement of both stock performance and time-based vesting conditions (“Available RSUs”). The grant date fair value of each Available RSU was determined by reference to Vimeo’s closing stock price on the date of grant and by using a Monte Carlo simulation of Vimeo’s stock price over the performance period, which is further described in Note 11 to our consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, filed with the SEC on February 27, 2023. The grant date fair value of the 2023 Vimeo RSU awards assuming maximum achievement of the performance conditions associated with the awards is: Ms. Munson, $5,803,330 and Mr. Cox, $8,356,800.
7.
For each named executive officer, the amounts in the table above for 2021 represent a non-cash modification charge related to adjustments to Vimeo SARs and Vimeo options in connection with the Spin-off and Vimeo merger.

The amounts previously accrued by Mr. Gross continue to be held in book entry by the Company and will be paid out in accordance with the terms of the Deferred Compensation Plan.

The Sud Agreement provided for (i) an annual base salary of  $600,000, (ii) eligibility to receive an annual discretionary bonus, with a target bonus equal to 100% of her base salary, (iii) an entitlement to an 18-month period following any future separation date to exercise vested Vimeo SARs or stock options, provided that if Ms. Sud resigned without good reason (as defined in the Sud Agreement), Ms. Sud must have provided us with at least eight weeks written notice prior to separation, and (iv) participation in our employee benefit plans. In addition, the Sud Agreement further provided for (i) twelve months of continued salary and (ii) twelve months of health benefits coverage or, at our option, COBRA coverage, upon the termination of her employment without cause or for good reason, subject to her execution of a release of claims in favor of the company. Ms. Sud is also party to an Employee Confidentiality, Intellectual Property, and Non-Solicitation Agreement with us that contains restrictive covenants, including confidentiality of information, assignment of certain intellectual property, non-solicitation and mutual non-disparagement covenants. The Sud Agreement was amended in March 2023 to, among other things, provide Ms. Sud with the opportunity to earn a non-discretionary bonus for 2023 based on the achievement of revenue and Adjusted EBITDA performance metrics. Additionally, the amendment provides that, with respect to Ms. Sud’s vested 2016 and 2017 SARs, Ms. Sud will have until the expiration date of the relevant SARs to exercise such vested SARs.
Memorandum of Understanding with Ms. Sud
Ms. Sud resigned as Chief Executive Officer of Vimeo effective August 31, 2023 (the “Separation Date”). In connection with Ms. Sud’s resignation, we and Ms. Sud entered into a memorandum of understanding dated July 5, 2023 (the “Sud MOU”). Pursuant to the Sud MOU, Ms. Sud would (i) continue to receive her base annual salary ($600,000) and standard Company benefits while serving as Chief Executive Officer until the Separation Date; (ii) be eligible to receive a discretionary bonus with a target of  $400,000 (representing the full year target bonus set forth in the Sud Agreement prorated for eight months of service) to be determined by the Board and paid following her departure; and (iii) be entitled to receive two thirds of any Non-Discretionary Bonus (for a maximum payment of  $533,333) earned under the Sud Agreement based upon the achievement of certain full-year financial performance metrics in 2023. After discussion, the Compensation and Human Capital Management Committee, together with Mr. Schiffman, determined that Ms. Sud would not receive a discretionary bonus for 2023. The Non-Discretionary Bonus was earned at a $775,529 payout factor, with $517,020 paid to Ms. Sud. Pursuant to the Sud MOU, all equity awards held by Ms. Sud continued to vest through the Separation Date, and were otherwise treated in accordance with the terms of such awards and the 2021 Plan. In addition, the Sud MOU includes other customary terms and covenants in favor of the Company and the Company granted Ms. Sud a limited noncompete waiver in connection with her termination of employment.

From September 1, 2023 through April 8, 2024, Mr. Gross did not participate in our non-employee director compensation program, however Mr. Gross’ previously-granted director-issued equity compensation continued to vest on its regular vesting schedule.

The number of RSUs earned is subject to upward or downward adjustment from 50% to 200% of the base number of RSUs, based on (i) for the first three tranches, a “payout factor,” calculated as (a) the volume-weighted average of the closing price of the Company’s common stock for the twenty (20) trading days immediately preceding the applicable vesting date divided by (b) $4.00 and (ii) for the true-up tranche, if the payout factor for the third tranche exceeds the payout factor for the first or second tranches, (a) the number of vested RSUs for each applicable tranche, recalculated using the payout factor for the third tranche, less (b) the number of previously-vested RSUs for the applicable tranche.

Mr. Kornfilt ceased to be a Board advisor on July 12, 2023, which resulted in a total payment to Mr. Kornfilt of  $37,500.
Outstanding Equity Awards at Year-End Table
The table below provides information regarding Vimeo stock options, RSUs and SARs, as applicable, held by our named executive officers on December 31, 2023. The market value of Vimeo RSU awards is based on the closing market price of Vimeo common stock ($3.92) on December 29, 2023, the last trading day of fiscal year 2023. The amounts included in the below table reflect the adjustment to equity awards in connection with the Spin-off and Vimeo merger.
In connection with the Spin-off, each option to purchase shares of IAC common stock was converted into an option to purchase shares of IAC common stock and an option to purchase shares of Vimeo common stock with adjustments to the number of shares subject to each option and the option exercise prices based on (1) the value of IAC common stock prior to the Spin-off and (2) the value of IAC common stock and the value of Vimeo common stock after giving effect to the Spin-off.
Except as otherwise described above and except to the extent otherwise provided under local law, following the Spin-off, the converted options generally have the same terms and conditions, including the same exercise periods, as the options to purchase shares of IAC common stock had immediately prior to the Spin-off.
 
   
[MISSING IMAGE: lg_vsquare-4c.jpg]
Vimeo, Inc. 2024 Proxy Statement   43

   
Following the Spin-off, solely for purposes of determining the expiration of options with respect to shares of common stock of one company held by employees of the other company, IAC and Vimeo employees will be deemed employed by both companies for so long as they continue to be employed by whichever of the companies employs them immediately following the Spin-off.
Treatment of Vimeo OpCo Equity Awards
Prior to the Spin-off, Vimeo OpCo had outstanding SARs and RSUs, the value of which corresponded to shares of Vimeo OpCo common stock.
In the Vimeo merger:

each Vimeo OpCo SAR was converted into a stock appreciation right corresponding to, and settled in, shares of Vimeo common stock (“Vimeo SAR”), with adjustments to the number of shares subject to each Vimeo SAR and the base price applicable to each Vimeo SAR, based on the exchange ratio in the Vimeo merger; and

each Vimeo OpCo RSU Award was converted into an award of restricted stock units corresponding to, and settled in, shares of Vimeo common stock (“Vimeo RSU Award”), with adjustments to the number of shares subject to each Vimeo RSU Award based on the exchange ratio in the Vimeo merger.
The Vimeo SARs and the Vimeo RSU awards otherwise have terms and conditions that are customary for public company stock appreciation rights and restricted stock units.

The 2021 Plan replaced the Vimeo, LLC 2012 Incentive Plan, the Vimeo, Inc. 2017 Incentive Plan and the Vimeo, Inc. 2019 Incentive Plan (including an Israeli Appendix), collectively referred to as the “Prior Plans.” The Prior Plans were automatically terminated and replaced and superseded by the 2021 Plan upon the completion of the Spin-off. Any and all awards granted under the Prior Plans remain in effect on their pre Spin-off terms pursuant to the 2021

Plan, subject to adjustment in connection with the Spin-off and the Vimeo merger. The 2021 Plan also covers Vimeo stock options that were granted as a result of vested IAC stock options in connection with the Spin-off.
The 2021 Plan authorizes the Company to deliver equity awards, including SARs, stock options, RSUs, and other stock-based awards related to shares of Vimeo common stock, to its employees, officers, directors and consultants covering an aggregate of up to 20.0 million shares of the Company’s common stock (in addition to previously-awarded shares under the Prior Plans and awards converted in connection with the Spin-off).
Under the 2021 Plan, our overhang (defined as the sum of unvested RSUs and restricted shares and outstanding SARs and stock options, divided by our total shares outstanding) was approximately 16.8% as of December 31, 2023, which is down from 21.6% as of December 31, 2022. Of this overhang, 7.5% is attributable to equity awards granted prior to the Spin-off and equity awards related to the conversion of IAC equity awards upon the Spin-off, and the remaining 9.3% is attributable to equity awards granted after the Spin-off. In addition, our 2023 burn rate was 3.8%, which was significantly lower than our 2022 burn rate of 8.6%. This material decrease shows our progress with respect to our commitment to our stockholders to materially decrease our burn rate in 2023 from 2022. We achieved this goal via a disciplined approach to our employee equity compensation program. Our three-year average burn rate at December 31, 2023 was 5.8%. We remain committed to maintaining an appropriate burn rate in 2024, and continue to design our equity compensation program with a goal of managing burn rate while balancing the need to attract and retain top talent.

Estimated Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control
Overview
Certain of our employment agreements, equity award agreements and/or omnibus stock and annual incentive plans entitle our named executive officers to continued base salary payments, continued health coverage, the acceleration of the vesting of equity awards, and/or extended post-termination exercise periods for stock options upon certain terminations of employment (including certain terminations during specified periods following a change in control of Vimeo). Ms. Sud and Messrs. Cox and Kornfilt were not entitled to any potential payments as of December 31, 2023, as they were no longer employees of the Company at that time. The payments and terms that each of Ms. Sud and Mr. Kornfilt received in connection with his or her termination of employment are described above under, for Ms. Sud, “Memorandum of Understanding with Ms. Sud” and for Mr. Kornfilt, “Memorandum of Understanding with Mr. Kornfilt” in the “Narrative Disclosure to Summary Compensation Table and Grants of Plan-Based Awards Table” section. Ms. Sud was also provided with 18 months after her separation date to exercise vested SARs and stock options, as provided for in the Sud Agreement (as amended), other than with respect to Ms. Sud’s vested 2016 and 2017 SARs, which may be exercised until the expiration date of the relevant SARs pursuant to the Sud Agreement (as amended). Mr. Cox did not receive any payments in connection with his termination of employment.

Additionally, Ms. Munson’s 2022 award agreement provides that her next tranche of unvested RSUs will become fully vested as of the date of such termination of employment. Mr. Gross is not entitled to severance upon a Qualifying Termination as of December 31, 2023 pursuant to the terms of his employment agreement in effect at the time.
Pursuant to the 2021 Plan, each of our named executive officers is entitled to accelerated vesting of a portion of any outstanding and unvested three-year cliff-vesting RSU awards, equal to (i) 20% of the award, if a Qualifying Termination occurs after one year from the vesting start date but before two years, or (ii) 40% of the award, if a Qualifying Termination occurs after two years from the vesting start date, but before three years.
