At the same time its subscriber numbers have grown, revenues increased 63 percent from 2012 to 2013, rising from $109.1 million to $178.2 during that period.
Its net loss also decreased significantly, from $20.7 million in 2012 to $2.6 million at the end of 2013.
While subscriptions accounted for $153.8 million of its revenues in 2013, Zoosk also has a rapidly growing virtual currency business, which increased from $5.4 million in 2012 to $24.3 million a year later.
Bof A Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, and RBC Capital Markets are acting as joint bookrunning managers for the proposed offering, with Oppenheimer & Co. Zoosk had raised $60 million since being founded in 2007.
Investors include Crosslink Capital, Keating Capital, Canaan Partners, Bessemer Ventures, ATA Ventures, Jeff Epstein, Plug & Play Ventures, and Amidzad Partners.
This page is an attempt by me to organize the vast majority of online dating related statistics and facts available on the Internet.
Almost every week there seems to be a new statistic produced that tries to top the last one.
While statistics can be spun to make almost anything look good, I've tried to report just the basic facts.
Online dating site Zoosk just filed its S-1 registration statement with the SEC, announcing its plans to raise 0 million in an initial public offering.
