Meltzer and Sports 1 Marketing LLC, Irvine, California, to acquire Aggregated Marketing Platform Inc. ("AMP"), Processing for a Cause Inc. ("PFAC"), and a related management company.
The proposed acquisitions, which can only be closed upon the parties meeting several conditions, will include up to $200,000 in cash consideration, and stock consideration of 7 million shares and options to purchase 5 million shares of common stock of Acquired Sales.

AMP plans to aggregate virtual gifting programs with traditional TV, radio, billboards, stadium screens and other marketing media using patent-pending software, and AMP is in negotiations with several professional sports teams to launch its aggregated marketing platform starting next month. PFAC plans to market credit card processing programs designed to benefit not-for-profit entities. AMP and PFAC were both launched by Sports 1 Marketing in January of 2016.
Following the acquisitions, H. Warren Moon and Gerard M. Jacobs will serve as Co-Chairmen of Acquired Sales, and David C. Meltzer and Gerard M. Jacobs will serve as Co-CEOs of Acquired Sales.

Gerard M. Jacobs, the Chairman and CEO of Acquired Sales, said, “We believe that Warren Moon and Dave Meltzer's vision for aggregated online and traditional marketing, starting with virtual gifting program nights at major professional sports and entertainment events, has the potential to disrupt the marketing industry. Acquired Sales is excited to partner with Warren and Dave, and to benefit from their years of experience and contacts."
