Committed to Returning Cash Flow to Shareholders

Englewood, Colorado, November 4, 2021 - Qurate Retail, Inc. ("Qurate Retail") (Nasdaq: QRTEA, QRTEB, QRTEP) today reported third quarter 2021 results (1).

"While there are near-term industry challenges to work through, I couldn't be more excited about the long-term opportunity at Qurate Retail to accelerate growth and drive shareholder value," said David Rawlinson, President and CEO of Qurate Retail. "Our team is managing through current industry pressures while simultaneously working intently to accelerate growth initiatives and reimagine our strategic plan. Supply chain constraints and cost inflation are impacting our entire industry, and we have taken action to help mitigate the potential impacts.

"Since joining the company in early August and transitioning to CEO on October 1st, I have met with countless customers, partners, thought leaders and entrepreneurs in our space, and Qurate leaders. These conversations reaffirmed the reasons why I joined Qurate. Our business is built on a solid foundation of long-standing relationships with highly engaged customers, expert hosts, compelling entrepreneurs, an established vendor network and our talented employee base. This is a solid foundation for accelerating our effort to humanize retail, in contrast to the scaled transactional players."

QxH

QxH revenue declined primarily due to a 9% decrease in units sold, primarily reflecting industry-wide supply constraints. This pressure was partially offset by a 1% increase in average selling price, reflecting product mix and targeted pricing actions to counter cost inflation. QxH experienced a 6% increase in spend per customer and a 4% increase in items purchased per customer, which were offset by a decline in customer count compared to last year's strong gains. QxH reported declines primarily in home, electronics and beauty, partially offset by growth in apparel.

Operating income and adjusted OIBDA margin(3) decreased primarily due to higher fulfillment (warehouse and freight) and marketing expenses, deleverage of fixed costs and lower product margins. These pressures were partially offset by lower incentive compensation accruals and inventory obsolescence expense.

QVC International

US Dollar denominated results were largely unaffected by exchange rate fluctuations, as the Dollar weakening 7% versus the British Pound and 1% against the Euro was largely offset by the Dollar strengthening 4% versus the Japanese Yen. The financial metrics presented in this press release also provide a comparison of the percentage change in QVC International's results in constant currency (where applicable) to the comparable figures calculated in accordance with US GAAP for the third quarter of 2021.

QVC International's constant currency revenue declined primarily due to a 5% decrease in units sold, partially offset by a 2% increase in average selling price. QVC International faced similar industry supply constraints as QxH primarily in its European businesses, partially offset by growth in Japan. QVC International reported declines primarily in home, accessories, beauty and jewelry, partially offset by growth in apparel.

4

Operating income and adjusted OIBDA margin decreased primarily due to higher fixed costs, lower product margins, higher TV commissions and fulfillment and marketing expenses. These pressures were partially offset by favorable incentive compensation accruals and inventory obsolescence.

Zulily

Zulily revenue decreased, reflecting supply constraints and reduced marketing effectiveness. These factors were partially offset by sustained growth from its factory direct business. Operating income and adjusted OIBDA margin decreased primarily due to higher fulfillment and marketing expense, deleverage of fixed costs and lower product margins, partially offset by lower incentive compensation accruals.

Cornerstone

Cornerstone generated record third quarter revenue led by Ballard Designs and Grandin Road. Revenue increased primarily due to strong demand for home décor, interior furnishings, bath and textiles, and for apparel at Garnet Hill. Operating income and adjusted OIBDA margin decreased primarily due to higher inbound freight costs and marketing expense, which were partially offset by lower administrative expenses.

c) Face amount of Senior Exchangeable Debentures with no adjustment for the fair market value adjustment.
d) Preferred Stock has an 8% coupon, $100 per share initial liquidation preference plus accrued and unpaid dividends and is non-voting. It is subject to a mandatory redemption on March 15, 2031. The Preferred Stock is considered a liability for GAAP purposes, and is recorded net of capitalized costs.
e) As defined in QVC, Inc.'s credit agreement as of September 30, 2021. The credit agreement was subsequently amended and restated on October 27, 2021. Among the definitional changes to QVC, Inc. leverage, two primary revisions include (a) Cornerstone added to the borrowing group and (b) recognition of all unrestricted cash of the borrowers and their restricted subsidiaries. The primary revisions reduce leverage to 1.9x as of September 30, 2021 on a pro forma basis.

Cash at Qurate Retail decreased $152 million in the third quarter primarily due to share repurchases and capital expenditures, partially offset by additional borrowings on QVC's bank credit facility.

Total debt at Qurate Retail increased $38 million in the third quarter primarily due to borrowing at Zulily under QVC's bank credit facility. QVC's bank credit facility has $120 million drawn as of September 30, 2021 with available capacity of approximately $2.81 billion, net of letters of credit. On October 27, 2021, QVC refinanced its credit facility, increasing capacity from $2.95 billion to $3.25 billion and extending the maturity to October 27, 2026. The borrowing group was expanded to include Cornerstone. Additionally, a redemption notice has been issued to holders of the 3.50% MSI exchangeable debentures to redeem in full on December 13, 2021 any debentures not previously properly surrendered for exchange. As of September 30, 2021, there was $210 million principal amount of debentures outstanding with a carrying

8

value of $549 million. The redemption is expected to be funded with borrowings under QVC's bank credit facility, amounts received upon termination of certain related financial instruments and cash on hand. Any exchanges of MSI exchangeable debentures will be settled using shares of MSI common stock acquired in a financial instrument transaction and cash in lieu of a fractional share. Qurate Retail is in compliance with all debt covenants as of September 30, 2021.

Qurate Retail benefits from an indemnification agreement with Liberty Broadband with respect to its Charter exchangeable debentures. The indemnification agreement compensates Qurate Retail for any payments made in excess of the adjusted principal amount of the debentures to any holder that exercises its exchange right on or before the put/call date of October 5, 2023. This indemnity is supported by a negative pledge in favor of Qurate Retail on the 1.0 million reference shares of Class A common stock of Charter held at Liberty Broadband that underlie the Charter exchangeable debentures. The indemnification asset on Qurate Retail's balance sheet is valued based on the estimated exchange feature in the Charter exchangeable debentures. As of September 30, 2021, a holder of the Charter exchangeable debentures has the ability to exchange and, accordingly, the indemnification asset is included as a current asset in our condensed balance sheet as of that date.

(Nasdaq: QRTEA, QRTEB, QRTEP) CEO, David Rawlinson, and Executive Chairman, Greg Maffei will discuss Qurate Retail's earnings release on a conference call which will begin at 8:30 a.m. (E.D.T.) on November 4, 2021.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, this press release includes a presentation of Adjusted OIBDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, for Qurate Retail, QVC (and certain of its subsidiaries), Zulily and Cornerstone together with a reconciliation to that entity or such businesses' operating income, as determined under GAAP. Qurate Retail defines Adjusted OIBDA as operating income (loss) plus depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, separately reported litigation settlements, restructuring, acquisition and other related costs and impairments. Further, this press release includes Adjusted OIBDA margin, which is also a non-GAAP financial measure. Qurate Retail defines Adjusted OIBDA margin as Adjusted OIBDA divided by revenue.

Qurate Retail believes Adjusted OIBDA is an important indicator of the operational strength and performance of its businesses by identifying those items that are not directly a reflection of each business' performance or indicative of ongoing business trends. In addition, this measure allows management to view operating results and perform analytical comparisons and benchmarking between businesses and identify strategies to improve performance. Because Adjusted OIBDA is used as a measure of operating performance, Qurate Retail views operating income as the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Adjusted OIBDA is not meant to replace or supersede operating income or any other GAAP measure, but rather to supplement such GAAP measures in order to present investors with the same information that Qurate Retail's management considers in assessing the results of operations and performance of its assets. Please see the attached schedules for applicable reconciliations.

In addition, this press release includes references to adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures, for Qurate Retail. Qurate Retail defines adjusted net income as net income, excluding the impact of acquisition accounting amortization (net of deferred tax benefit), mark to market adjustments on certain public debt and equity securities and other one-time adjustments. Qurate Retail defines adjusted earnings per share as diluted earnings per share plus the diluted per share effects of certain adjustments, net of tax.

Qurate Retail believes adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are important indicators of financial performance due to the impact of purchase accounting amortization, mark to market adjustments and other one-time items identified in Schedule 3 below. Because adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are used as measures of overall financial performance, Qurate Retail views net income and diluted earnings per share, respectively, as the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are not meant to replace or supersede net income, diluted earnings per share or any other GAAP measure, but rather to supplement such GAAP measures in order to present investors with a supplemental metric of financial performance. Please see the attached schedules for a reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income (loss) and adjusted earnings per share to diluted earnings per share, in each case, calculated in accordance with GAAP for Qurate Retail (Schedule 3).

10

This press release also references certain financial metrics on a constant currency basis, which is a non-GAAP measure, for Qurate Retail. Constant currency financial metrics, as presented herein, are calculated by translating the current-year and prior-year reported amounts into comparable amounts using a single foreign exchange rate for each currency.

Qurate Retail believes constant currency financial metrics are an important indicator of financial performance, in particular for QVC, due to the translational impact of foreign currency fluctuations relating to its subsidiaries in the UK, Germany, Italy and Japan. We use constant currency financial metrics to provide a framework to assess how our businesses performed excluding the effects of foreign currency exchange fluctuations. Please see the financial tables at the beginning of this press release for a reconciliation of the impact of foreign currency fluctuations on revenue, operating income, Adjusted OIBDA and average selling price.

SCHEDULE 1

The following table provides a reconciliation of Qurate Retail's Adjusted OIBDA to its operating income calculated in accordance with GAAP for the three months ended September 30, 2020, December 31, 2020, March 31, 2020, June 30, 2021 and September 30, 2021, respectively.
