Steve Samblis, IC Places President, noted:
I met Al [Alashe Nelson, CEO of the EzVip.com] during his recent trip to LA where he was inking deals for his West Coast expansion. We both saw the instant synergy. Teaming up with Mark Cuban and Daymond John, Al has created the OpenTable (OPEN – OpenTable Inc (NASDAQ)) of night clubs. We have Night Life sections in all of our 350 city websites. The partnership with EzVip will allow us to generate significant revenues from those sections.
Under the agreement EzVip will pay IC Places a percentage of each booking it generates. IC Places Night Life sections will offer direct links to reserve tables at the best clubs in each city using the EzVip engine.
Alashe Nelson commented:
We are very excited to be working with IC Places. Having IC Places as a partner in our expansion gives us pre-positioned placement in cities as we grow. We will be able to tap into IC Places current visitor base and expand our reach though their sites. It also gives IC Places the ability to monetize site visitors in a new way.
