InfoUSA Announces Mergers-and-Acquisitions Policy

All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Grow? Melding of Telecom, Electronic Banking and Internet to continue corporate 'Melting Pot'.

InfoUSA, a publicly-owned Nevada corporation, is fulfilling a singular mission: to design and fully develop a proprietary technology - both hardware and software - integrating three powerful technologies into one seamless service: Telecommunications; Electronic Banking; and the Internet. During the last two years, InfoUSA has successfully completed five acquisitions of emerging companies in its unique industry, strengthening both its product line and market position in the process.

Corporate combinations: How to make 1 + 1 = 11. Company CEO Thomas Skala explains, "InfoUSA is committed to a process of internal, organic growth - building and growing our own solutions WHERE IT MAKES SENSE. But we also are continuing to build our business through judicious business combinations. We refine and develop technology while expanding through marketing and strategic acquisition."

"Many entrepreneurs and small businesses find themselves facing a familiar predicament," said Skala. "They've built a solid, profitable business, but it's reached the limits of its growth and the future looks flat. They can't break out of the market they are in, or they can't offer the equity share to attract the new talent they need, or they're too small to swing the financing to build to that next level, and way to small to 'go public'. Or maybe they've just taken the business as far as they ever wanted to - they're ready to move on to other things, but haven't found the right exit strategy.

"Very often, the only things limiting a small company's growth are basic overhead and access to resources. Being part of the InfoUSA family brings economy of scale. Eliminate duplicate overhead and everyone profits. Bring in the ability to fully develop that one 'killer application' and the market opens - usually exponentially. That's how we improve technology to secure the future. Build a larger & better team with experience and relationships in more markets. Bake a larger pie for everyone."

On the subject of personnel, CEO Skala is just as blunt. "Attracting the talent you need to grow the business further - to develop that great idea, or even to just keep the wheels on - takes something beyond a checkbook. Good people require more then just a salary. They want to participate in the future of the company… to build equity.

"We know the right path to bring the right people and the right companies into the right place at the right time. In short: we get it RIGHT," Skala asserts.

InfoUSA is always on the lookout for companies and talented people in any of these areas:

• Answering service companies

• Cellular and wireless service providers

• Companies with existing distribution channels

• Direct marketing companies

• Email service providers

• Financial services to the vast “unbanked” community.

• Money service business

• Paging companies

• Prepaid ATM card issuers, providers and/or resellers

• Prepaid calling cards providers

• Stored value Gift Card providers

• Stored value service providers

• Unified communications providers

• Voice mail providers

Skala concludes, "We're interested in acquiring and/or developing a relationship with the best businesses and the brightest people who have what we need, providing what they need to take it to the next level – in Unified Electronic Banking, Telecommunications and Internet industry."
