"eLong’s new majority owner IAC, Barry Diller’s company, earlier last month exercised millions of warrants for the privilege of gaining its majority stake. This exercise of warrants produced a cash infusion to eLong of around US$108 million, almost double the amount of cash raised from its IPO."

"The bad news for investors is that Barry Diller seems to have gotten a real sweetheart deal. While the market price of eLong’s stock is in the mid-teens, Barry got his shares for about US$6 a pop. ...
