"Affinitas GmbH's revenue is USD 86 Million LTM, with USD 8 Million EBITDA." ? Unaudited.
Spark Networks (LOV) and EliteSingles (Affinitas GmbH.) to Merge, Creating a Global Leader in Online Dating ?
Match Group is 10 times bigger than Spark + Affinitas merge.
eHarmony is is 2 or 3 times bigger than Spark + Affinitas merge.

Affinitas GmbH. 2014 financials. Revenue and Net Loss? (Affinitas Phantom Share GmbH.)
EliteSingles / eDarling sites are only copycats of eHarmony.
A prospective client will not perceive eDarling / EliteSingles sites as better, superior or different than eHarmony's ones.
eHarmony's sites are 3 times bigger in active users and revenue than EliteSingles's sites.
And worse, Affinitas GmbH. can not beat and will never beat eHarmony Inc. in United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and United States.
There is a WAR between eHarmony Inc. and Affinitas GmbH. (EliteSingles / eDarling sites, copycats of eHarmony)
eHarmony is a 16+ years old obsolete site. The success rate of eHarmony is less than 10%.
eHarmony is only supported by a big marketing budget and not by serious scientific evidence.
The Big Five normative test used by eHarmony and its copycats, had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.
Now it is a HOAX, a FRAUD to use it (year 2017)
EliteSingles (Affinitas GmbH.) CEO lifts the lid on executive dating
Rocket Internet SE (RCKZF) owns in part Affinitas as 2016 report
Last May 2012, 5 long years ago, Affinitas GmbH. failed to be entirely sold to eHarmony Inc.
Perhaps both Affinitas GmbH. and Spark Networks are 2 dead walking cats no one will innovate in the online dating industry.
