Leapnet to buy Calif. Web agency

Published on .

Chicago agency Leapnet has agreed to buy privately held Nine Dots Corp., a Tustin, Calif.-based interactive agency. The terms of the deal were not disclosed. Nine Dots' clients include high-tech companies Adaptec, Rainbow Technology and Western Digital Corp. Leapnet Chairman-CEO Frederick Smith said buying Nine Dots is part of Leapnet's plan to increase its Internet revenue by 100% during the 1999 fiscal year. Last week Leapnet also named Breaux A. Walker, formerly director, business development and acquisitions at USWeb/CKS Corp., Santa Clara, Calif., executive partner, business development.
