24/7 Real Media Inc. has sold its broadband and professional services subsidiary IMAKE Software and Services Inc., to IMAKE's chairman/CEO Mark Schaszberger for $6.5 million in stock and cash, the company said.

Under the terms of the sale, Schaszberger will pay $500,000 in cash and the remaining $6 million in a secured note. Of the $6.5 million total price, $4 million is contingent on future revenue and is payable monthly. 24/7 Real Media will retain a 19.9 percent share in IMAKE.

The sale of IMAKE, according to Mark Naples, 24/7 Real Media's vice president of marketing, is in keeping with the company's goal of concentrating on its profitable businesses.
