    Ancestry.com (ACOM -1.8%) temporarily spiked higher on a Bloomberg report claiming P-E firm Permira has resumed talks to buy the family history site for $32/share. Reuters reported 3 weeks ago P-E firms were balking at Ancestry's insistence on a $35/share ($1.5B) buyout price, and that the company would make a decision by September's end.

    Shares of Ancestry.com (ACOM) gain 9.4% in premarket trading after the company stirs the pot by asking potential suitors to raise their buyout offers. Though shares have run up 38% over the last few months as the company opened itself up for bids, revenue projections have also shot higher to keep valuations somewhat reasonable for a high-growth Internet name.

    Ancestry.com (ACOM) asks suitors, including P-E firms Permira and TPG, to increase their bids for the genealogy Web site, Bloomberg reports, with the firm already turning down a bid of $35 a share. KKR and Providence have shown interest but haven't yet made any offers as they think the price is too high. Ancestry.com closed yesterday at $30.24, giving it a market cap of $1.29B.
