  Company Description:

Active Interest Media (AIM) was formed in October 2003 by Wind Point Partners and Efrem "Skip" Zimbalist III. AIM is a rapidly growing media company focusing on enthusiast magazines and related consumer shows, Internet sites, and books.

In conjunction with our magazines, we produce and market more than 75 martial arts videos and books, including several by the legendary Bruce Lee. We also produce a dozen three-day log-home show seminars that attract thousands of consumers from around the United States.

Show Management produces major in-water boat shows in Florida, including the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), the largest boat show in the world. FLIBS, owned by the Marine Industry Association of South Florida, attracts more than 100,000 attendees who can view and purchase yachts of up to 200 feet in length, many with prices well in excess of $25 million. In addition to FLIBS, we produce the Yacht and Brokerage Show in Miami, the Palm Beach Boat Show, the Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota, and the St. Petersburg Boat Show. In addition to the boats themselves, each event showcases equipment and accessories for the operation and enjoyment of boats.

Active Interest Media is actively seeking further acquisitions of leading consumer media properties in niche enthusiast markets.
