Here are some of the most interesting parts of Giuseppe Graziano’s executive summary:

DEVELOPMENT INDEX AND OWNERSHIP DATA

2018 ended with a reversal of trends from Q2 and Q3, with China gaining about 22,500 domains (+3.67%) and controlling about 1/3 of all the
liquid domains, especially numerics. Once again, the largest movement in ownership came from domains going from public to private. Private
domains now represent 38% of all liquid domains.

The US controls 17% of the liquid domains, while Europe and the rest of the world excluding China, account for 10% combined.

SALES DATA

4Ls .com domains registered a record $8.6M in escrow.com transactions, by far the best result since the publication of this report. The second
largest escrow.com domain sales volume belongs to the 3Ls, with almost $5M in transactions; followed by the 4Ns which registered one of their
strongest quarters with $2.7M in escrow.com sales.

FORECAST

Q1 is normally a slow quarter for Liquid Domains due to the reduced activity from China caused by the Chinese New Year. Unless there are large
end user transactions, we forecast a slow beginning to 2019.
