Executive Summary

BuyItNow selling interest in CosmeticsPlus.com to more.com for a minimum of $7.5 mil. in cash and stock, through cash payments made over the next 15 months.

BuyItNow offered cosmetics via a link to the CosmeticsPlus.com site but opted to sell its interest to focus on marketing of computers and consumer electronics. Beauty.com and more.com have entered a strategic partnership to jointly develop CosmeticsPlus.com to provide consumers with the "most complete online resource for health, beauty and wellness products." CosmeticsPlus.com will remain a separate brand entity and will be featured as more.com's online beauty store (1"The Rose Sheet" July 24, p. 9)
