Gamut will also acquire a minority equity interest in IAC and nominate representatives to the board. WL Ross and Co. LLC, a division of Invesco Ltd., and Franklin Mutual Advisers LLC, will remain the company's majority shareholders. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close prior to the end of April.
