Between its majority stakes in two of its now-public former subsidiaries — Tinder father or mom Match Group and Angie’s List father or mom ANGI Homeservices — and its cash hoard, IAC’s entire value “usually adds up to something more than [its] market cap,” Levin knowledgeable Cramer in a “Mad Money” interview.
At the end of Thursday’s shopping for and promoting session, Match Group’s market cap was spherical $15.5 billion and ANGI’s was roughly $8.5 billion. Just taking into consideration IAC’s 81.1 p.c and 83.9 stakes in each agency, respectively, and the $1.7 billion in cash on its stability sheet, that gives as a lot as roughly $21.4 billion — correctly above IAC’s current $18 billion market cap.
