IAC to Merge Home Services Unit With Angie's List

At $8.50 a share, the deal would value Angie's List at more than $500 million and represent a premium of 44% over its closing price Monday of $5.89. Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services Inc. now owns 2,670 shares of the company's stock worth $177,000 after buying an additional 25 shares during the period.

The Company's tools, services and content across multiple platforms enable consumers to research, shop for and purchase local services for needs, such as home, health and automotive services. IAC will own at about 90% of the stock in the combined company.

Angie's List had revenues of just over $320 million for the full year 2016. Durchslag struck an optimistic tone in February, touting progress with the transition. The most IAC would pay out in cash would be $130 million. Eric Semler, founder of hedge fund TCS Capital, demanded the company explore alternatives, including selling to IAC's HomeAdvisor.


According to a press release, HomeAdvisor CEO Chris Terrill will assume the role of CEO of ANGI Homeservices Inc., whose headquarters will be based out of HomeAdvisor's Golden, Colorado location.
