Blucora Inc's Comment on Competitors and Industry Peers


We face intense competition in all markets in which our businesses operate. Many of our competitors or potential competitors have substantially greater financial, technical, and marketing resources, larger customer bases, longer operating histories, more developed infrastructures, greater brand recognition, better access to vendors, and more established relationships. Our competitors may be able to adopt more aggressive pricing policies, develop and expand their product and service offerings more rapidly, adapt to new or emerging technologies more quickly, take advantage of acquisitions and other opportunities more readily, achieve greater economies of scale, and devote greater resources to the marketing and sale of their products and services than we can. For our businesses to be successful, we must be competitive in the Wealth Management and Tax Preparation markets, as described in more detail below.

Wealth Management Competition
The wealth management industry is a highly competitive global industry. We and our financial advisors compete directly with a variety of financial institutions, including traditional wirehouses, independent broker-dealers, registered investment advisers, asset managers, banks and insurance companies, and direct distributors such as 1st Global and Cetera Financial Group, as well as larger broker-dealers such as Raymond James Financial. Mergers and acquisitions have resulted in consolidation in the wealth management industry. As a result, many of our competitors may have greater financial resources, broader and deeper distribution capabilities, and a more comprehensive offering of products and services. We and our financial advisors compete directly with those companies for the provision of products and services to clients, as well as for retention and hiring of financial advisors.

We believe that our competitive position in the wealth management industry is a function of our ability to enable our advisors to offer investment guidance in the context of their clients' tax situations and more specifically to:

offer high-quality portfolio investment options and competitive product pricing;

offer a differentiated value proposition (in terms of brand recognition, reputation, and financial advisor payouts) that is sufficient to recruit and retain financial advisors;


offer products that are attractive to financial advisors and their clients;

negotiate competitive compensation arrangements with third-parties, including vendors, suppliers, and product sponsors;

develop and react to new technology, services, and regulation in the financial services industry; and

put in place a sufficient support and service network required to support our financial advisors and clients.
Tax Preparation Competition
Our TaxAct business operates in a very competitive marketplace. There are many competing software products and online services. Intuit’s TurboTax and H&R Block's DDIY consumer products and services have a significant percentage of the software and online service market. Our TaxAct business must also compete with alternate methods of tax preparation such as storefront tax preparation services, which includes both local tax preparers and large chains such as H&R Block, Liberty Tax, and Jackson Hewitt, and it may also be subject to new market entrants who may take some of our market share. Finally, our TaxAct business faces the risk that state or federal taxing agencies will offer software or systems to provide direct access for individual filers that will reduce the need for TaxAct’s software and services.
We believe that our competitive position in the market for tax preparation software and services is a function of our ability to:

differentiate our brand versus those of competitors;

offer competitive pricing;

continue to offer high-quality, easy-to-use, and accessible software and services that are compelling to consumers;

market the software and services in a cost effective way; and

offer ancillary services that are attractive to users, including enhanced tax and wealth management services through HD Vest.
