Whether you admit it or not, you've probably come across the Match Group as they are responsible for the most popular online and app-based matchmaking empire on Earth. With Match.com, OkCupid, Tinder, PlentyOfFish, meetic, Twoo, OurTime, and FriendScout24, under their belt, Match Group certainly is on a mission to find your match for you.
But a business is a business, the Match Group does intend to help you out with your love quest but they also intend to profit from it. This is the reason why they filed for an initial public offering today in order to raise around $450 million that will elevate their value at $3.1 billion. Last year, they were able to gain $888.3 million in revenue which they will definitely surpass this year.
