MARION, IN – Aeverine Zinn Holdings (“Ms. Zinn”) announced Monday that Ms. Zinn intends to purchase the web assets of infamous web site Vote for the Worst (votefortheworst.com, VFTW) for an undisclosed sum upon the site’s closing June 30, 2013 at the latest with the URL expiring in February 2014. The transaction is subject to approval by regulators, and antitrust clearance. Ms. Zinn anticipates the closing and funding of the acquisition to occur no earlier than August 2013, subject to closing conditions. Upon closing, Ms. Zinn expects to finance the undisclosed purchase price, less a $20 deposit, through cash on hand along with a bank loan and/or by accessing the capital markets.
“Since I launched Vote for the Girls in 2010, it is becoming quite clear that American Idol viewers want change. When I heard that VFTW is shutting down, and learning the news that my pick of Angie Miller got eliminated, it literally made the decision to acquire VFTW a relatively easy decision after much thought and consideration,” commented Ava Zinn. “Vote for the Girls has become successful in the past few years and is consistent with the focus of of one goal and that goal is quite clear. Assuming the ability to create synergistic opportunities and given current market conditions, we believe the acquisition of VFTW will add approximately 20 percent more advertising revenue for 2013/2014. I am excited to add VFTW to the Aeverine Zinn works portfolio joining AvaZinn.com and VotefortheGirls.us of the Internet works as well as other franchises owned and/or operated by Aeverine Zinn Holdings (Housing Hell, Santa Ava, INNewsCenter, and Vote for the Girls) and look forward to welcoming the VFTW employees to the Aeverine Zinn Holding family–but honestly I don’t think it will be necessary.”
Aeverine Zinn Holdings owns, operates, programs and/or provides sales services to 10 venues serving East Central Indiana. Pro forma for the VFTW transaction, Aeverine Zinn Holdings will own and operate, program or provide sales services to three web sites. Aeverine ZInn Holdings web portfolio will include Vote for the Girls, Vote for the Worst, INNewsCenter, and AvaZinn.com.
