InterActiveCorp chief Barry Diller said the company is in talks to buy Yahoo Personals to augment its Match.com business.
We are very interested. We'd love to have Yahoo! Personals and I think there is some initial discussions about that, whether they're going away or not is of course enormously speculative. But I think, Yahoo! has said that it's not an absolute core asset their future and it is core to us. We're a leader in the category. So, we're very aggressive behind Match and any possibilities for increasing its future money in the world.
Yahoo has been looking to shed non-core properties and IAC could be a buyer of other assets. too.
