Datingapp Tinder is going to the stock market later this year, but then as part of its parent company Match.com.

Match Group was acquired by media mogul Barry Diller (IAC) in 1999 and has since incorporated one dating site after another, such as OKCupid, Chemistry.com, HowAboutWe, speeddate.com and Meetic. Sales in the first quarter amounted to $ 239.2 million.

Diller says in a statement that the part is so healthy now that it can be torn away from 'the mother church'. The current management simply remains.

Tinder is the best known of all sites. Since the start in 2012, 1.5 billion profiles have already been created in Tinder, although only a limited group uses the app intensively.

IAC also owns sites like The Daily Beast and video service Vimeo, with sales of 3.1 billion dollars in 2014.
