This contract with America Online
is a major milestone for Portal Software and clearly demonstrates our ability to support the largest, most innovative market-leading companies," said John Little, president and CEO of Portal Software, Inc.
Under the agreement, Six Flags will promote America Online
across its off-line marketing channels, will incorporate AOL sponsorship of certain rides and attractions and will promote the America Online
keyword, ``Six Flags,'' in its television advertising.
Speculation that America Online
was the bidder, previously fueled by a report in The Washington Post, was revived Monday when The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources, reported that the two companies were hammering out a $1.
The congestion began early last month after America Online
, in an ambitious bid for further growth, started to charge customers a flat $19.
95 monthly fee marks a turnaround for America Online
, which recently offered the $19.
Things went well for America Online
on its first day of trading on the Big Board, with its shares closing at $29, up $2.
Berger of New York and other lawyers representing America Online
customers said the settlement had received preliminary approval by the San Francisco Superior Court.
