Despite loss, they beat the Street.
IAC, the parent company of Ask.com, today reported its Q4 2009 earnings. While revenues in their Search division were up 3%, IAC had to report a loss of $1 billion. The loss is related to impairment charges, which has to do with the reduction in value of a company’s goodwill.
Even so, IAC beat expectations by a $0.03. Wall Street is reacting favorably. IAC stock is up 4.21% at the time of this post.
