For the last week I have had many people write me or ask me in person if I have heard anything about the affiliate network Neverblue purchasing the
Modeling Agency Affiliate networking company AKMG.
At first I dismissed the rumors. It didn’t really make sense to me why a powerhouse in the industry like Neverblue would want to purchase what seems like a newly formed company, AKMG.
But as I thought about the deal more it made more sense. First of all rumors are that AKMG are somewhat in trouble financially.
Neverblue is a Canadian based company rumored to be working on getting a US corporation.
If Neverblue can purchase or merge with AKMG for virtually nothing (watch terms will not be disclosed if it happens) then this is a really good move for Neverblue and also for AKMG if in fact they are in debt.
But again this is all just rumors but I wanted to write about it anyway… its much easier to get my thoughts out there on the rumored deal then respond to a bazillion questions about my thoughts on it.
So I emailed a few people I had emails for at NeverBlue and AKMG.
Within Minutes Kimberlee White of AKMG said to call her asap. She said that if I could hold off a little bit on posting we could work together and release the “big news” at the same time.
I said well thats fine and awesome for you but whats in it for me?
She got all pissy and said well you would have actual facts about the purchase.
I told her no thanks… I don’t want to syndicate her press release.
She told me she would have the CEO of Neverblue call me. I said I was just going to go ahead and post her confirmation.
So there you have it. Its going down. How will it exactly work? Stay tuned for the “official press release”.
