“We are thrilled to welcome Nat to IAC,” says IAC Group Chairman Stephen J.

Toy adds the following statement regarding Steve Miller:

“We thank Steve Miller for his significant contributions to IAC over the last three years, including the development of our long-range strategic plan, the establishment of our joint venture, Auria Solutions Ltd. with Shanghai Shenda Co. Ltd., as well as the successful recapitalization of the company and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
