NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Match  (MTCH) were retreating in after-hours trading on Tuesday after the online dating company reported a 2016 third-quarter revenue miss but earnings beat. 

After the market close, the Dallas-based Tinder parent company said revenue grew 18% year-over-year to $316.4 million but missed analysts' expectations of $318.0 million.

Dating revenue grew 22% to $288 million, while non-dating revenue slid 15% to $28.9 million due to the new SAT test format, the company said in a statement.

Adjusted earnings of 23 cents per share beat the FactSet consensus of 19 cents per share.

The number of paid users on Match's dating services increased 31% to 5.5 million, as Tinder ended the quarter with 1.5 million paid users.
