PRESS RELEASE


Identity Protection Companies Plan Merger

Intersections Inc. To Expand Identity Theft Protection Services to Corporate Brands and Products with the Acquisition of Net Enforcers, Inc.


 
CHANTILLY, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intersections Inc. (NASDAQ:INTX - News) today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to purchase 100% of the outstanding shares of Net Enforcers, Inc. Net Enforcers is a leading provider of corporate identity theft protection services, including online brand monitoring, online auction monitoring and enforcement, intellectual property monitoring and other services. Through a combination of proprietary technology and specialized business processes, Net Enforcers helps corporate brand owners prevent illegal trademark and copyright abuse, counterfeit product and service sales, grey market sales, channel policy violations, and other business risks of the online world.

Counterfeiting and brand and product fraud cost corporations and consumers billions of dollars each year and create substantial and life threatening hazards to consumers due to illegal pharmacy products and non-approved hazardous electronics. “Net Enforcers complements our industry leading, consumer-focused identity theft protection services with a world class offering of corporate identity theft protection services,” said Michael Stanfield, CEO of Intersections Inc. “Combined with our existing data breach response and background screening services, we are building a portfolio of first class services designed to meet the needs of corporate security officers on a worldwide basis.”

The aggregate purchase price to be paid in connection with the acquisition of Net Enforcers at closing is approximately $14.0 million in cash, less any unpaid indebtedness and transaction expenses of Net Enforcers as of the closing date, and is subject to adjustment based on certain closing cash amount, debt, working capital and net asset targets as of the closing date. Additional cash earnout payments of up to $3.5 million may also be made based on specific EBITDA and net revenue targets during the first five years following the acquisition. Intersections intends to finance the acquisition with advances under its credit facility, subject to its lender’s consent. Intersections expects the transaction to close (subject to satisfaction of closing conditions) in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2007. Net Enforcers will continue to be led by its founder and Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Loomis.

“Bringing together Net Enforcers’ domain expertise and product development capabilities, with Intersections’ resources and contacts in the global security community, will make for a powerful combination that should accelerate the growth of both companies,” said Net Enforcers founder and Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Loomis.

Additional information about Net Enforcers’ product offerings can be found on the company’s website at NetEnforcers.
