BabyCenter Head Tina Sharkey Says Site Worth $500 Million – $1 Billion

Tina Sharkey, global president of Johnson & Johnson-owned baby site BabyCenter, says she gets three calls per week from parties interested in acquiring the site, though of course it is fully owned by Johnson & Johnson. Speaking at the Momentum Conference, Sharkey denied that J&J was interested in selling the site, but that it could fetch between $500 million and $1 billion, reports Tech Confidential. The price tag would be a nice score for J&J, which acquired the site for $10 million back in 2001.

Meanwhile, BabyCenter has been active, having recently acquired mom-focused social networking site Maya’s Mom, while adding to its management ranks.

  1. I'd disagree. It's way too high, but the site is superb – particularly it's hand holding personalised weekly newsletter. e.g. this week, your baby looks like this, it's doing this, you should think about eating this, don't eat this, if you're feeling like this, try this. All helpful stuff and thankfully advertorial free.
