PriceGrabber to be sold?

February 17, 2008

Read in Times Online:

EXPERIAN, the credit-checking giant, has put its price-comparison website Pricegrabber up for sale less than three years after it paid almost $500m for the online firm. […] The decision to put Pricegrabber on the block may raise a few eyebrows given that revenue growth at the shopping search engine was a rare positive among an otherwise disappointing recent set of results. […] The sale of Pricegrabber is also likely to coincide with Yahoo’s sale of Kelkoo, an online European shopping comparison site, which City sources say may lower the price Experian can achieve.
