Losing its independence on Independence Day, Lexico is now part of the Ask.com family, as IAC’s (NSDQ: IACI) portal completes its purported $100 million cash acquisition of the Dictionary.com, Thesaurus.com and Reference.com operator. Announcing the completion, which had been expected in Q3, Ask.com Jim Safka: “The combination… significantly expands our audience reach, and aligns perfectly with our customers’ needs.”
