Reuters news service has the following info concerning rumors of Ancestry.com's sale to private investors:
"Ancestry is focusing its discussions on Permira after it asked the private equity firm and its competitors – Hellman & Friedman LLC and TPG Capital LP – to improve on their offers, the people said. Talks with Permira could still fall apart and there is no certainty a deal will be reached, they added."
Happy family tree climbing!
