Overview 
  
InfoSpace, Inc. is a provider of wireless and Internet software and application services. We have developed and deliver a wireless and 
Internet platform of software and application services that enable companies to offer network based services under their own brands. Our 
customers in turn, offer these products and application services to their customers as their solutions. We provide our services across multiple 
platforms simultaneously, including PCs and non PC devices.  
  
We develop and deliver our products and application services to a broad range of customers that span each of our business areas of 
wireline and broadband, merchant and wireless. In our wireline and broadband business, we deliver our services to Web portals such as 
America Online, destination sites such as Disney, and DSL providers such as Verizon Online. In our merchant business, we deliver our 
products to regional Bell operating companies such as Verizon, merchant banks such as Union Bank of California, and financial institutions 
such as American Express. In our wireless business, we deliver our products and application services to wireless carriers such as Verizon 
Wireless, AT&T Wireless and Cingular and other consumer service companies such as Charles Schwab.  
  
Our services are predominately built on our core technology platform and use the same operational infrastructure. We do not currently 
allocate development or operating costs to any of these services.  
  
Naveen Jain, our Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, founded InfoSpace in March 1996. During the period from our inception through 
December 31, 1996, we had insignificant revenues and were primarily engaged in the development of technology for the aggregation, 
integration and distribution of Internet content and the hiring of employees. In 1997, we expanded our operations, adding business development 
and sales personnel in order to capitalize on the opportunity to generate Internet advertising revenues. We began generating material revenues 
in 1997 with our wireline services. Revenues in 1998 were also primarily generated through our wireline consumer services and we also started 
distributing our services on wireless platforms. Throughout 1999, 2000 and 2001, we expanded and enhanced our products and application 
services through both internal development and acquisitions and focused on developing and deploying our Internet software and application 
services to merchants and on wireless platforms. We do not expect our broadband services to generate meaningful revenues until 2003. We 
have offices in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and The Netherlands. As of February 28, 2002, we had 741 
employees worldwide.
