The acquisition is the first of a series planned by the Company aimed at making Rick's one of the top players in the adult Internet market.

Under the terms of the acquisition, Rick's has issued 700,000 restricted shares of Rick's common stock to Voice Media, of which 250,000 shares will remain in escrow until certain earnings benchmarks are achieved. Voice Media will also be entitled to receive a cash earn-out amount of $380,000 during the six years following Rick's acquisition. In addition, Voice Media could receive up to an additional cash earn out amount of $925,000 if certain earnings benchmarks are achieved. Voice Media would receive the entire amount if the EBIDTA of XXXPassword during the 12 month period following the closing of this transaction exceeds $1,200,000. The cash earn-out portion of the purchase price is payable only from up to 50% of the free cash flow from the web site, payable over six years. As part of the acquisition, Voice Media will continue to manage and market the web site for a flat monthly fee.
