Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that it is investigating potential
claims against the Board of Directors of Ancestry.com Inc. (“Ancestry.com” or
the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ACOM) related to the proposed acquisition of the
Company by Permira Advisers LLP. The transaction is valued at approximately
$1.6 billion or $32 per share.

share price has skyrocketed from $20.95 on March 22, 2012 to $33.23 on August
3, 2012. Further, at least one analyst has set a target price for the
Company’s stock at $45.00.
