INTERESTING information from IAC
In a recent post I had written about CONFIDENTIAL information from the European Meetic - Group (Mostly owned by IAC - InterActive Corporation / nasdaq:IACI)
Now I post a IAC document which shows its International Operations (page 26 pdf / page 17 document) are small in comparison with what they should be.
The IAC Personals had a good Q1 thanks to previous acquisitions of dating sites and lowering new customers' high acquisitions costs, but I will wait and see Q2 2013.
Its Latin American operations are estimated to be coins!
IAC/InterActive' CEO Discusses Q4 2012 Results - Earnings call Transcript
9+ years old but still valid presentation from the IAC
NO INNOVATIONS SINCE YEARS IN THE ONLINE DATING INDUSTRY.
C level executives do not pay attention to latest research from Academics which could be beneficial for the Online Dating Industry.
Paid online dating sites have high acquisition costs, they can not abandon the attracting, converting and retaining marketing stages; the automatic renewal of their members's subscriptions with dirty credit-card billing trickery.
