IAC Key Facts


About IAC
IAC (NASDAQ: IAC) is a leading media and Internet company composed of widely known consumer brands, such as Match, Tinder, PlentyOfFish and OkCupid, which are part of Match Group’s online dating portfolio, HomeAdvisor and Angie’s List, operated by ANGI Homeservices, as well as Vimeo, Dotdash, Dictionary.com, The Daily Beast and Investopedia. The company is headquartered in New York City and has offices worldwide.

History
IAC’s founder and Chairman, Barry Diller, realized decades ago what is commonly known today: that technical leaps in interactivity would revolutionize commerce in record time.

IAC’s unique legacy is thanks to its ability to acquire, create, and assemble high-performing businesses and category leaders, while disrupting massive consumer categories like ticketing, travel and dating – effectively hastening their transition to the online world.

IAC has spawned 10 public companies, including ANGI Homeservices Inc. Match Group, Expedia, TripAdvisor, HSN, Tree, Interval, and Live Nation (formerly Ticketmaster), creating equity value in excess of $47 billion over the course of more than 20 years. Since Mr. Diller took control of IAC, a dollar invested in the company has returned shareholders a 14% Compound Annual Growth Rate.

The legacy continues with a new generation of IAC portfolio companies, disrupting everything from how people create videos, discover a plumber, lease a car, or find a job.

Mission and Strategy
We don’t believe in simply agglomerating assets in perpetuity: as entities grow into size and maturity, it’s healthy to give them separation and independence. IAC has built its name by not being reliant on amassing great companies, but on creating them, fostering them, and preparing them to stand on their own.

We are proven to spot winners at any stage, helping both burgeoning companies and established businesses unlock their full potential. We’re a tech company ourselves. We are operators, innovators, product gurus, lawyers, finance experts, marketers and analysts who are running a publicly-traded company. We see our skin as being in the game and we take a long term view when it comes to incubating, investing and growing companies, using our operational expertise to turn upstarts into category killers, repeatedly.
