Overview

InfoSpace, Inc. (“InfoSpace”, “our” or “we”) is a developer of search tools and technologies that assist consumers with finding content and information on the Internet. We use our metasearch technology to power our own branded Web properties and provide online search services to distribution partners.

We offer search services that enable Internet users to locate information, merchants, individuals, and products online. We offer search services through our Web properties, such as Dogpile.com, WebCrawler.com, MetaCrawler.com, and WebFetch.com, as well as through the Web properties of distribution partners. Partner versions of our Web offerings are generally private-labeled and delivered with each distribution partner’s unique requirements.

We were founded in 1996 and are incorporated in the state of Delaware. Our principal corporate office is located in Bellevue, Washington. We also have an office in Bangalore, India. Our common stock is listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol “INSP.”

Until the fourth quarter of 2007, InfoSpace was comprised of three businesses: online search, online directory, and mobile. We sold our online directory business and mobile services business in the fourth quarter of 2007, and had exited other portions of our mobile business during 2007. In December 2007, as a result of the sales of those businesses, we committed to

a plan to make operational changes to our business, which included a reduction in our workforce and, as part of the workforce reduction, consolidation of our facilities. Following the sale of our mobile and directory businesses, our revenues are derived exclusively from providing online search services.

We generate revenues primarily from our Web search services when an end user of our services clicks on a paid search link displayed on one of our owned and operated Web properties or displayed on a distribution partner’s Web property. We receive paid search links for display as part of our search services from certain content providers, whom we refer to as our customers.

Our ability to grow our online search services revenue on our owned and operated properties relies on growth in the volume of paid clicks, the fees advertisers pay our customers for these paid clicks, and the percentage of these fees our customers share with us. In recent periods, on our owned and operated properties, we have experienced an increase in paid clicks, primarily driven by our marketing initiatives, which has been more than offset by lower average fees per paid click from our customers.

Similar to the revenues earned on our owned and operated properties, revenues from distribution partners are dependent upon growth in the volume of paid clicks, the fees advertisers pay our customers for these paid clicks, and the percentage of these fees our customers share with us. We have experienced steady growth in revenues from our search services offered through the Web properties of distribution partners, which has been primarily attributable to growth in paid click volumes from new distribution partners’ Web properties in the United States. This paid click volume growth has been more than offset by reductions in the average fees that our customers share with us. In recent periods, our customers’ process of measuring the quality of paid clicks and adjusting the fees paid to us has adversely affected revenues from certain of our distribution partners. In an effort to drive quality traffic to our customers, we continue to invest in product development to expand our online search services offered to our distribution partners.

Engineering, operations and product management personnel remain paramount to our ability to deliver high quality online search services as well as enhance our current technology and grow our product offerings. As such, we expect to continue to invest in our workforce and increase our research and development operations in India. Additionally, we may utilize our cash and short-term and long-term available-for-sale investments to acquire businesses and other assets that will enhance our current technologies and extend our product offerings.

Overview

 

InfoSpace, Inc. (“InfoSpace”, “our” or “we”) develops search tools and technologies that assist consumers with finding content and information on the Internet. We offer search services that enable Internet users to locate and view content, information, merchants, individuals, and products online. We offer search services through our Web sites, such as Dogpile.com, WebCrawler.com, MetaCrawler.com, and WebFetch.com, as well as through the Web properties of distribution partners. Partner versions of our Web offerings are generally private-labeled and delivered with each distribution partner’s unique requirements.

 

Our search offerings differ from most other mainstream search services in that they utilize our “metasearch” technology that selects results from several search engines, including Google, Yahoo!, and MSN, among others, which serve as our content providers.

We compete against other providers of Web search services. We also compete against more traditional media, including radio, network and cable television, newspaper, magazines, Internet, direct mail and others for a share of the U.S. advertising media market.

 

We were founded in 1996 and are incorporated in the state of Delaware. Our principal corporate office is located in Bellevue, Washington. We also have an office in Bangalore, India. Our common stock is listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol “INSP.”

 

From 2004 to 2007, InfoSpace was comprised of three businesses: online search, online directory, and mobile. The mobile business was comprised of a mobile content product offering and a mobile services offering. In 2006, as a result of being informed by one of our carrier partners that it intended to develop direct relationships for mobile ringtone content with the major record labels beginning in 2007, we restructured our operations and substantially reduced our mobile content offerings in 2007. In 2007, we completed the sale of a significant portion of our remaining mobile content assets for $3.8 million. On October 31, 2007, we completed the sale of our directory business to Idearc Inc. for $225 million in cash. On December 28, 2007, we completed the sale of our mobile services business to Motricity, Inc. for $135 million in cash. Following the sale of our mobile and directory businesses, our revenues are derived exclusively from providing online search services.

 

The operating results of the directory and mobile businesses have been presented as discontinued operations in our consolidated financial statements for all periods presented. The process used to separately present continuing and discontinued operations relied on certain estimates and assumptions, and the historical results of operations presented in our consolidated financial statements do not necessarily reflect the results that would have existed had we provided our online search services as a standalone business throughout the periods presented. Due to the rapidly evolving nature of our business, overall market conditions and the process used to separately present continuing and discontinued operations, we believe that comparisons of our 2008 operating results to prior years are not necessarily meaningful, and you should not rely upon them as indications of future performance.
