Franchise Management International, Inc (PINKSHEETS: FMII), a premier provider of public charter and transportation services, today announced that the company has executed a binding letter of intent with Netadventures, Inc to acquire the www.GayTravel.com web property in addition to certain other licenses and trademarks of Netadventures, Inc.
GayTravel.Com is the web's premiere location for gay and lesbian travelers, helping them research, select, and book the vacation they've always dreamed of. In addition, GayTravel.Com is one of the web's best resources for gay tours, cruises, and vacation packages offered by some of the most progressive travel companies in the business. The GayTravel.com website is currently the highest ranked 'gay travel' search in Google and Yahoo. To date, they are getting a significant amount of hits without putting any money towards advertising.
This acquisition will complement Franchise's existing ambitions in servicing the lucrative and underserved 'niche travel' market. According to Community Marketing, Inc, a San Francisco-based research and marketing company, the gay travel segment now represents 10% of the entire United States travel industry, and gay and lesbian travelers are spending over $60B every year. Management believes that the closing of this acquisition, expected within 45 calendar days, will create a formidable position of strength for the company in a vibrant and burgeoning sector.
Franchise Management International will provide further details about this binding letter of intent, and the additional licenses and trademarks acquired, in a subsequent announcement from the company. Management would like to thank shareholders for their continued support, and believes that the company business plan will continue to support and enhance shareholder value.
