Inuvo And Vertro Showcase Synergies With Launch Of Daily Deal App “Kowabunga” On The App Platform

Stocks in this article: INUV

Inuvo®, Inc. (NYSE Amex:INUV), an online marketing technology and services company, has partnered with Vertro™ (NASDAQ:VTRO), owner of the ALOT™ product line, to launch a Kowabunga® branded daily deals app on the ALOT App Platform. The Kowabunga app is currently available to the ALOT App Platform’s U.S. users, which make up a significant portion of the platform’s over eight million consumers.

The two companies, who recently announced their intention to merge and are awaiting the approval of the merger from regulatory authorities, see this as an example of the synergies to be had by merging Inuvo’s innovative products and Vertro’s platform distribution together.

Kowabunga (, a daily deals site operated by Inuvo, delivers over 1,800 local and national retail deals covering more than 80 U.S. markets. Kowabunga is positioned to compete for the millions of dollars in monthly daily deals sales currently being generated on the ALOT App Platform via daily deal partners including Living Social, Ebay and others.

“Our ability to deploy a daily deals application within the ALOT App Platform in so short a period of time reflects well on the combined companies’ ability to deliver on the anticipated synergies,” said Rich Howe, CEO at Inuvo.

With over 25 million downloads a year, the ALOT App Platform offers consumers the ability to create a personalized browsing experience for surfing the web. Users can enhance the ALOT experience by adding apps from many popular categories including entertainment, news, social networking and shopping. Easily accessible at the homepage, the Kowabunga app can be installed from within the shopping category to instantly provide the consumer with daily deals across specific shopping interests such as dining, recreation, health and beauty, and much more. With a single click, consumers can also access local deals without ever having to leave the webpage they are on.
