Match’s listing on the NASDAQ with the symbol MTCH, seeks to capitalize on the booming market for dating sites in the U.S. According to its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission the company reported $888.3 million in revenue in 2014, up about 11% from the previous year.

InterActiveCorp. (IAC), the company which owns Match, would retain control of more than 50% of voting rights after the IPO under its ownership of Class B shares, which have 10 votes apiece.

Match said it intends to use the IPO proceeds to pay down debt owed to IAC.

The underwriters for the IPO include J.P. Morgan, Allen & Co. and Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
