TechCrunch.com [techcrunch.com ] is reporting the private equity deal, subject to shareholder approval.
If ever there was a deal where "generic descriptive domains" = "internet brands" THIS is THAT deal. "Brands" such as Autos.com, Loan.com, Gardens.com, VacationHomes.com, DoItYourself.com, BusinessFinance.com, . . .
A closer look at their portfolio shows the majority of those sites are community based forums. To wit - they acquired vBulletin a few years ago. Generic is part of the equation, but the real value is in the content and community that those domains hold. Chicken or egg? (a little of both)
