Yellow Pages sells RedFlagDeals to VerticalScope for $12 million

MONTREAL — Yellow Pages Ltd. says that its wholly-owned subsidiary has reached a deal to sell its RedFlagDeals division to VerticalScope Inc. for $12 million.

The payment will be made in two instalments, half the total when the transaction closes around Aug. 22 and the rest when unspecified conditions are met.

Yellow Pages CEO David Eckert says the sale frees up resources that will be devoted to its core business.
