Risk Factors
 
Any investment in our securities involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the following information about these risks, together with the other information contained in this Annual Report on Form 10-K. If any of the following risks occur, our business financial position and operating results could be materially harmed. In these circumstances, the market price of our securities could decline, and you may lose all or part of the money you paid to buy our securities.
 
All statements made in this Annual Report on Form 10-K, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements, as defined under federal securities law. The words “look forward to,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “will,” “would,” “should,” “could,” “guidance,” “potential,” “opportunity,” “continue,” “project,” “forecast,” “confident,” “prospects,” “schedule,” “designed,” “future,” “discussions,” “if” and similar expressions typically are used to identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on the then-current expectations, beliefs, assumptions, estimates and forecasts about our business. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions which are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Factors which may affect our business, financial condition and operating results include the effects of changes in the economy, consumer spending, the financial markets and the industries in which we and our clients operate, changes affecting the Internet and e-commerce, our ability to develop and maintain relationships with clients, strategic clients and suppliers and the timing of our establishment, extension or termination of our relationships with clients or strategic clients, our ability to timely and successfully develop, maintain and protect our technology, confidential and proprietary information, and product and service offerings and execute operationally, our ability to attract and retain qualified personnel, our ability to successfully integrate our acquisitions of other businesses, the performance of acquired businesses and other factors described in the risks below. In addition, the current global economic environment amplifies many of these risks. We expressly disclaim any intent or obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

Risk Factors

Our Form 10-K for fiscal 2005 includes a detailed discussion of our risk factors. The information presented below should be read in conjunction with the risk factors and information disclosed in our Form 10-K for fiscal 2005.

It may be difficult for a third-party to acquire us and this could depress our stock price.

Certain provisions of our amended and restated certificate of incorporation, bylaws, stockholder rights agreement and Delaware law may have the effect of discouraging, delaying or preventing transactions that involve any actual or threatened change in control. The rights issued under our stockholder rights agreement may be a substantial deterrent to a person acquiring beneficial ownership of 20% or more (or, in the case of any stockholder that as of April 2, 2006 beneficially owned 19% or more of the outstanding shares of common stock, 25.1% or more) of our common stock without the approval of our board of directors. The stockholder rights agreement would cause extreme dilution to such person.

In addition, we are subject to Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law which, subject to certain exceptions, restricts certain transactions and business combinations between a corporation and a stockholder owning 15% or more of the corporation’s outstanding voting stock for a period of three years from the date the stockholder becomes a 15% stockholder. In addition to discouraging a third party from seeking to acquire control of us, the foregoing provisions could impair the ability of existing stockholders to remove and replace our management and/or our board of directors.

Delaying or preventing a change in control of our company may reduce the number of investors interested in our common stock or the price that investors might be willing to pay for shares of our common stock and result in the market price being lower than it would be without these provisions.

See “— We are controlled by certain principal stockholders.”

We are controlled by certain principal stockholders.

As of November 1, 2006, Michael G. Rubin, our chairman and chief executive officer, beneficially owned approximately 15.9%, funds affiliated with SOFTBANK Holdings Inc., or SOFTBANK, beneficially owned approximately 17.9%, and Liberty Media Corporation, through its subsidiary QVC, Inc. and QVC’s affiliate QK Holdings, Inc. beneficially owned approximately 20.3% of our outstanding common stock, including options to purchase common stock, which are exercisable on or before September 30, 2006. If they decide to act together, any two of Mr. Rubin, SOFTBANK, and Liberty would be in a position to exercise considerable control, and all three would be in a position to exercise complete control, over most matters requiring stockholder approval, including the election or removal of directors, approval of significant corporate transactions and the ability generally to direct our affairs. Furthermore, pursuant to stock purchase agreements, SOFTBANK and Liberty each have the right to designate up to one member of our board of directors. This concentration of ownership and the right of SOFTBANK and Liberty to designate members to our board of directors may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change in control of us, including transactions in which stockholders might otherwise receive a premium over prevailing market prices for our common stock. Furthermore, Mr. Rubin has entered into voting agreements with each of SOFTBANK and Liberty, and SOFTBANK and Liberty have entered into voting agreements with each other. The parties to these voting agreements have agreed to support the election of the directors designated by each of the other parties.
