LUXEMBOURG — Manwin confirmed today that it plans to acquire the company operating one of the oldest and largest tube sites featuring adult entertainment — RedTube.com.

Manwin officials wouldn't shed light to XBIZ on details or terms of the plan to acquire Hong Kong-based Bright Imperial Ltd., but the adult entertainment conglomerate filed merger papers last week with the Austrian Competition Authority stating that an acquisition is in the works.

Other Manwin units, including Reality Kings, Digital Playground and Playboy Plus, are registered in Austria.

RedTube holds an Alexa ranking within the top 100 websites at No. 79. Its traffic rank in the U.S. is 87. The video-sharing tube site, whose name is a play off Google's YouTube brand, offers straight porn videos by category and makes its money through adult advertising. It has been in operation since 2007.

Bright Imperial not only operated RedTube.com but scores of other "red tube" sites.

In 2010, court papers in a copyright infringement case revealed that Bright Imperial operated 116 other "red tube" domain names. The company also said at the time that RedTube.com was No. 3 in terms of adult entertainment traffic.

Manwin operates Brazzers, Twistys,  YouPorn, Spankwire, Webcams Tube8, ExtremeTube, KeezMovies, Mofos, ExtremeTube, JuicyBoys and PornHub, as well as Playboy Plus, Digital Playground and Reality Kings.

Manwin is based in Luxembourg with offices in Burbank, Calif., Montreal, London, Dublin, Hamburg and Nicosia.
