BLOOMBERG - Dec 3 - Badoo has attracted ~200M people worldwide, 25M of them are active. The challenge is now to expand beyond its strongholds in Southern Europe and Latin America. Badoo is eyeing Asia, UK and US. The company has been profitable since 2009, and sales last year expanded ~33% to $200M. It has hired Goldman Sachs Group as an adviser and doesn’t rule out an IPO. Meetic and Match.com are not concerned about the challenge from Badoo. Sam Yagan said his service is superior to Badoo and is rated higher by users.
