Dating service stocks bridget marquardt dating chuck williams

Match Group, which owns a variety of online dating brands including Tinder, Ok Cupid and Match, has filed its paperwork to become a public company and have its stock begin trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market.

Match, which filed the paperwork on Friday, is looking to raise 0 million with the offering.

In July, Ashley Madison admitted that it had suffered a major cyberattack that appears to have scuttled its plans to go public.

The company stated the risks plainly in its filing: We are frequently under attack by perpetrators of random or targeted malicious technology-related events, such as cyber attacks, computer viruses, worms or other destructive or disruptive software or distributed denial of service attacks.

Early on, most Tinder users signing up for the paid version were men.

The company will trade under the uninspiring ticker symbol "MTCH," even though more striking ones like KISS were apparently available.

Match is owned by IAC, the media conglomerate helmed by Barry Diller, which also controls a variety of other digital companies like and Vimeo.

It also noted that it is easy for customers to switch between dating apps and websites.

Online dating has indeed been a difficult business.
