"In a deal scheduled to be announced today, Aurora-based
LinuxMall.com will be acquired by Linux distributor eBiz
Enterprises in a reverse merger that will make LinuxMall.com a
publicly traded company."
"The deal combines two companies that own some of the most
visited Linux sites on the World Wide Web. LinuxMall.com records
about 20 million page visits per month at its online shopping site
and affiliated sites. eBiz, out of Scottsdale, Ariz., owns
TheLinuxStore.com and LinuxLabs.com, among others."
"The deal also allows 7-year-old LinuxMall.com to forego its
plans for an initial public offering."
