Hi Score Corporation has Agreed in Principle to Acquire SEO Company
MIAMI, Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hi Score Corporation (PINKSHEETS: HSCO) announced today that it has been in final discussions with a South Florida Search Engine Optimization (SEO) company. The talks are regarding Hi Score acquiring the SEO company in exchange for cash and stock. The final terms are yet to be finalized but are expected to be concluded within the next ten days.
The Company announced earlier this year that the Board of Directors had approved a plan to engage in acquisition talks with private companies in the Energy Saving Lighting, Medical Solutions and Energy Drinks industries. Company CEO Michael Zoyes said earlier this month that he had "been discussing with the Board...the idea to open up... acquisition plans to include considering private companies from other spaces as well as the ones we originally agreed upon." The Board of Directors recently resolved to "...allow company management to consider opportunities with companies in any space provided the deal makes fiscal sense and show potential of growth."
Since that resolution Company President Zoyes has met with numerous interested parties in several different industries. "The gaming deal is still very much alive," said Mr. Zoyes. "I am very excited about it...as I have mentioned the potential is huge...but there are a lot of moving parts...we need to finish our due diligence...should not be much longer...but in the meantime this SEO deal just sort of fell in our lap. It is neat and clean and has tremendous potential. It is really quite a bit more than your run of the mill SEO program. This team has integrated SEO with a Pay Per Click PPC program...creating a hybrid that actually gets measurable results that begin occurring right away, which is indicative of PPC, and allows for the SEO advertising to grow organically, with a boost here and there... and it can be scaled across several price points. Of course the management team comes with the deal. These guys have done what appears to be a superb job at creating their package and they are geared for bundling the package on a wholesale basis to resellers as well as presenting a brown bag version for retail sale."
The "gaming company" that Mr. Zoyes was referring to is an internet gaming company that the Company announced earlier this month was a potential acquisition target. As Mr. Zoyes said, "This deal is still very much alive." The company continues to be very optimistic about the future.
