Update to Business–Legal Proceedings

The following updates and supplements the discussion in the Preliminary Prospectus under the caption “Business–Legal Proceedings”: 

Threatened Claim

On July 24, 2017, we received a letter from counsel to David Eraker, one of Redfin’s founders and our former CEO. The letter asserts a variety of claims against us, Paul Goodrich, a director, and Madrona Venture Group, an investor, related to events prior to Mr. Eraker’s departure from Redfin in August 2006. Mr. Eraker released all claims against Redfin in connection with his departure. The letter focuses on allegations about the inventorship of one of Redfin’s patent applications that has not issued and does not cover our current products or services. The letter threatens litigation, but no complaint has been filed. We believe these claims have no merit. We will defend ourselves vigorously if Mr. Eraker sues us. However, litigation is uncertain and expensive, and any judgment or settlement could harm our business.”
