They consolidated 6.4M revenue from ad.com inthe the numbers from increasing their ownership stake to 53% in the qtr. With out that optical illusion the company woukd have missed topline estimates! Instead of 529.4M in revenue it was really 523M.
Sure seems to be a lot of moving parts in their numbers. Fundamentally it is the same company prior to the patent sale. I really see no strategic value in AOL and it certainly has much larger competitors that are actually relevant.
