the sequence has been created by me about one year ago.
So I think that no reference exist (at least for what I know).
You can find other similar sequences in EIS.

Subject: Sum-product numbers
Does anyone have a proof on the (non)existence of any more sum-product
numbers, i.e., numbers n s.t. n = (product of digits of n) x (sum of
digits of n); http://www.treasure-troves.com/math/Sum-ProductNumber.html.
Other than 1, 135, 144, there are no others < 10^9. The sequence is known
to be finite
(http://www.research.att.com/cgi-bin/access.cgi/as/njas/sequences/eisA.cgi?A
num=038369)
and it seems likely that clever arguments based on divisibility might be
able to establish if any more such numbers actually exist.
Cheers,
-Eric
P.S. Does anyone have a reference where these first appeared?
