MALTA, May 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Dating.com Group, managed by SOL Networks, is an umbrella brand for more than 15 projects, including Dating.com, Lovinga, Tubit and TripToghether and many others — has announced that it is looking to acquire dating companies in Asia and the U.S. The strategic decision to expand its global footprint through M&A was made during its Spring 2019 Board meeting in Malta. The group is rapidly growing its inorganic investment strategy and is looking to partner with early - and late-stage companies in online dating, social interaction and live streaming markets. The deals will be announced in the near future.
The U.S. market continues to be the leader in the world of online dating, generating nearly $800 million of revenue.

According to Statista, the online dating market tallies $426 million in Asia and is expected to grow by nearly 7 percent through 2023. Dating.com Group's strategic deals offer a pathway to capturing some of that growth.
