Six Apart May Be Acquisition Target
A speculative story in InternetNews.com discusses the future of Six Apart, asking whether it’s a prime target for Yahoo to add to its portfolio of offerings.
The article quotes David Hornik, a Six Apart board member and a partner in August Capital, saying, “Six Apart is not in conversations about being acquired by anyone.” Last October, Six Apart received $10 million in Series B funding from August Capital.
When Ask Jeeves acquired Bloglines earlier this week, eyes turned again to Six Apart as the last free-standing blogging service, InternetNews says, speculating that Ask Jeeves might be interested in buying Six Apart.
InternetNews quotes Jim Lanzone, Ask Jeeves’ senior vice president of search properties, saying, “There’s a lot of things we’d consider buying – or partnering for or building.”
