Will Genes Reunited be put up for sale?

The broadcaster ITV is in serious financial difficulties, with further losses of advertising revenue and a pension deficit. It is about to announce its annual results, and there are fears that it may be forced to slash jobs and to sell the Friends Reunited website. Will Genes Reunited (www.genesreunited.com) be included if this happens?

A BBC story on ITV's current woes is available at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7922664.stm.

UPDATE: 4 MAR 13.00: Friends Reunited is definitely up for sale, still no word on Genes Reunited - see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7922770.stm. GR is currently referring all enquiries on the subject to ITV.
