The Internal Revenue Service is auditing the Company's payroll tax returns for the year 2000. The Company expects this audit to be 
concluded in 2002. No amounts have been accrued in the financial statements for any liability that may result as the amount, if any, the 
Company will be required to pay related to this matter is not determinable.  
The Company has pledged a portion of its cash as collateral for standby letters of credit, a bank guaranty and in the form of certificates of 
deposit that guarantee the future monthly lease payments for certain of its property leases. At December 31, 2001, the total amount of collateral 
pledged under these agreements was approximately $4.7 million, which consists of $4.0 million of standby letters of credit, $418,000 of 
certificates of deposit and $342,000 of bank guaranty.  
The Company was audited by the Department of Labor in February 2001. The Department of Labor determined that numerous employees, 
primarily former employees of Go2Net, were improperly classified as exempt and should have been classified as non exempt. As a result, for 
the year ended December 31, 2000, the Company recorded an estimated accrual in the amount of $3.0 million for the past wages that are due 
for overtime worked. Based on the overtime questionnaires the Company has received from the applicable employees and a revision to the 
methodology used to calculate overtime pay approved by the Department of Labor, the Company has revised the estimate for this liability to be 
$629,000 of which $507,000 has been paid through December 31, 2001. The Company anticipates that this matter will be resolved in 2002.
