Ancestry.com to Acquire Sweden's Genline.se

  • Leading Swedish Family History website
  • 26 million pages of family history records, 16th-20th century

London, UK and Provo, Utah - June 14, 2010

Ancestry.com Inc. (Nasdaq: ACOM), the world’s largest online family history resource, today announced that it has agreed to acquire the leading Swedish family history website Genline.se.

Total consideration for Genline is approximately US $6.7 million, to be paid in cash at closing. The offer has been accepted by Genline’s Board of Directors but remains subject to approval of Genline Holding AB’s public shareholders and other ordinary course closing conditions.

Genline expects to provide proxy materials to shareholders immediately and hold a Special Meeting of Stockholders shortly to vote on the transaction. Genline trades on the Stockholm exchange AktiTorget under the ticker symbol GENL.

Upon completion of the transaction, Genline will join Ancestry.com’s family of nine web properties globally, which together serve more than 1.2 million subscribers and host over five billion historical records and 17 million family trees containing 1.7 billion profiles.

Genline currently has more than 17,000 paying members with access to 26 million pages of digitized Swedish church records spanning more than 400 years from the 16th to the 20th century.

Josh Hanna, SVP and General Manager, International, Ancestry.com Inc., comments: “The Genline.se transaction, our first international acquisition, represents an exciting opportunity for Ancestry.com to access Sweden’s avid family history community and to provide Ancestry.com subscribers of Swedish heritage in the U.S. and other markets with access to important historical content.

"For Genline members, the millions of US and Canadian records with Swedish relevance will provide many new opportunities to discover North American ancestors."

Mikko Ollinen, Genline AB Managing Director, comments: "We are delighted that Ancestry.com sees the potential of Genline. Together we look forward to continuing to grow our business in Sweden and to making new and exciting historical records, both local and international, available to our members."

Ancestry.com expects to acquire all shares of Genline AB for approximately 53 million Swedish kronor with an adjustment for net working capital. Based on a June 11, 2010 exchange rate of SEK7.94 to US$1.00, the net purchase amount approximates US$6.7 million

Genline’s 2009 reported revenue was $2.4 million. Ancestry.com does not expect the acquisition to have a material impact on its financial guidance as issued in connection with its first quarter earnings release on April 29, 2010.

Genline FamilyFinder Upgrade

In our continuing efforts to improve our service, Genline will be releasing a new version of the Genline FamilyFinder for Windows (GFF) on Wednesday, May 13th at 4 AM Eastern Standard Time.

GFF 2.5 will automatically update to GFF 3.0 when you start the GFF program the first time after the update. The update may take a few minutes depending upon your Internet connection speed.

Summary of Changes

  • New transcription feature - This feature allows the user the ability to transcribe a person's information from an image and save the information and make it accessible to other users. This new feature allows one to mark an area in the image and then enter the data in a form.
  • New name search feature - allows the user to search by person's name - only names that have been transcribed are included in the search. (As transcriptions occur, new names are added to the name search.)
  • Change Name "GIDx Search" heading to "Place Name" search in the search window.
  • Option to include SCB records in the parish sequence search.

For more information on how to use the new GFF with the transcription feature, refer to the Genline FamilyFinder User Guide. The new user guide will be available on May 13th.
