Online marketing services provider RelationServe Media Inc. will pay $50 million in cash and stock for SendTec Inc., a St. Petersburg, FL, direct marketing agency wholly owned by theglobe.com.


The combined agency this year is expected to generate operating income of $10 million on pro-forma revenue of $70 million. Last year's pro-forma numbers for the combined entity were $3.5 million in operating income on revenue of $47 million.
