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.

Mandee Heller Adler, RelationServe's current CEO, will run the company's online marketing business as president of wholly owned subsidiary RelationServeAccess. Ohad Jehassi, current chief operating officer, is the new president of another RelationServe subsidiary, friendsand.com. Warren Musser remains chairman of RelationServe.


The deal is to close in 60 days.
