Wednesday night, InterActiveCorp (IAC) launched a hostile bid to take over Angie's List, reports CNN Money's Chris Isidore. IAC offered $512 million in cash, slightly above Angie's List's market value as of Wednesday evening. The offer also indicated a, "willingness to consider a combination of Angie's List with IAC's HomeAdvisor business through a tax-free stock-for-stock exchange," according to a press release from Angie's List.

CNNMoney also reports that shares fluctuated in after hours trading once the deal was made public:

Shares climbed as much as 17% in after-hours trading on the news, suggesting that some investors thought the final price could be higher. But the trading price later retreated to near the offer price.
