IAC/InterActiveCorp Research Report

On December 19, 2013, IAC/InterActiveCorp (IAC) announced changes to its
executive team in relation to its reorganization. According to IAC, Greg
Blatt, CEO, will step down from his current position to become Chairman of the
newly created Match Group, which initially comprise of the Company's Match
businesses, Tutor.com, DailyBurn, and Skyllzone. IAC reported that Blatt will
continue to report to Barry Diller, Chairman and Senior Executive of the
Company, and the Company does not intend to appoint a new CEO. The Company
stated that Sam Yagan, CEO of Match, will become CEO of the Group and will
report to Blatt while Joey Levin, CEO of Search and Applications, and Kerry
Trainor, CEO of Vimeo, will now report directly to Diller. "Greg Blatthas
performed superbly as CEO of IAC for the last three years," commented Diller.
"During that period, we've essentially doubled our stock price and increased
our operating profit by over 180%. Over the last three years our areas of
focus have crystallized, our management teams have developed, our reporting
lines have consolidated, and Greg and I agree that a less centralized
operating structure, pushing talent and decision-making closer to the
businesses, is now the best way to achieve our growth objectives." The Full
