Angie's List Reviewing Options, Including an IPO

Angie’s List is considering filing for an IPO as early as this year, CEO Bill Oesterle told Bloomberg.

The site charges members between $40 and $70 a year to belong. In preparation for the company’s next stage, it has appointed Keith Krach as chairman and Robert Millard as CFO. Oesterle said revenues jumped 40 percent in 2010 and the company expects to end the year with 1.8 million members. Last month, it reportedly raised more than $50 million.
