FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 11/19/2014 – – Sports Media Entertainment Corp (OTCQB: EAHC) today announced it has signed a letter of intent to acquire Multimedia Platforms, LLC (“MMP”), a multimedia technology and publishing company delivering a suite of printed publications integrated with mobile, social media, and online platforms that are focused on the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) marketplace which is estimated to be an over $850 billion market.
Multimedia Platforms, LLC (“MMP”) has established revenue-producing operations currently focused in South Florida. MMP produces two publications, Guy Magazine, a Men’s Lifestyle periodical, and the Agenda-Florida Edition, a news and business focused weekly newspaper. The Company’s expansion model includes plans to roll up other LGBT publications. MMP’s publications reach more than 150,000 readers each month, and have over 60,000 unique visitors to the online sites per month.
The letter of intent with EAHC outlines a transition period pursuant to which MMP will accomplish the necessary steps to merge with EAHC and complete the transaction. At this time no definitive agreement has been entered into between the parties and there is no assurance that the parties will close on the transaction.
Upon successful completion of the transaction, Bobby Blair, CEO of MMP, will take over as CEO of EAHC, and EAHC will then undergo a name change to reflect its new business operations. Mr. Blair has more than 25 years of experience in leadership in the business world. At the age of 27, Mr. Blair became one of the youngest general managers in US history to lead a professional sports franchise when World Team Tennis/Billie Jean King hired Mr. Blair to lead the Tampa, Florida franchise. Mr. Blair launched MMP in 2007, with a dedicated, professional team, many of whom remain with the Company.
MMP’s CEO, Bobby Blair, stated, “We have worked tirelessly over the last several years to build a print and online platform that reaches deep into the $850 billion LGBT market. Now, with this merger, we believe we will be able to accelerate our expansion through both organic growth and acquisitions,” Blair added.
Early in 2014, TBG Holdings Corp. invested in Multimedia Platforms, LLC to strengthen MMP’s corporate infrastructure, raise capital, provide accounting and CFO functions (through TBG’s sister company, R3 Accounting,) and take preparatory steps to become a publicly traded company.
