Getty Images to acquire Jupitermedia?

Posted by Kristi Heim

Though it might seem at first like an odd pairing, a report out today said Internet information company Jupitermedia is in talks to be bought by stock photo giant Getty Images.

Seattle-based Getty is in discussions to buy Jupitermedia for about $450 million, the New York Post said, in a bid to expand its offerings to Web site designers and online marketers.

Jupitermedia shares were up 24 percent in Nasdaq trading. The company's market value is about $287 million.

Jupitermedia includes Jupiterimages, which holds the rights to more than 7 million images online. Getty Images' other recent acquisitions include iStockphoto for an undisclosed sum, Pixel Images Holdings Ireland for $135 million and Laura Ronchi S.p.A. Italy for an undisclosed sum.

A Bloomberg report said a Getty spokeswoman declined to comment on the New York Post story.
