To All -
Today IAC announced that it will combine HomeAdvisor and Angies List, Inc. into a new, publicly-traded company called ANGI Homeservices Inc. This is an exciting combination of the two biggest brands in the home services space and as a combined entity we will truly be the number one home services marketplace in the world.
Even though we have each taken different approaches to solving home owner needs, there are strong similarities and synergies that make the combined company more powerful and stronger together. While we have challenged each other in the marketplace for dominance in the past, I have nothing but respect and admiration for the brand the Angies List team has built over the years. More importantly, a unique and powerful merging of these two companies was only possible because of the hard work and effort on your part to build such an amazing and strong company in HomeAdvisor. I look forward to the tremendous opportunities ahead for the combined company as we continue to innovate and lead in the home services space.
We will set up meetings shortly to provide more details and answer your questions.
