Ooopps...it was only $345 million!

Hey, whats a measly $5 million when you deal with these kind of numbers...

Cary-based R.H. Donnelley said Business.com employs about 100 workers and serves approximately 6,000
business-to-business advertisers. Business.com is expected to generate more than $50 million in 2007 revenue.

I would think of business.com as a sort of yellowpages, classified product and services directory, not so much of a domain company.

Bluepages?
BTW, I am selling 蓝页.com for 10 ppm of the "business.com" price.

Donnelley, the company that bought the name has been in business for 140 years...
I guess that is a short amount of time by Chinese standards!

Donnelley already does almost a billion dollars in sales annually ($900,000,000 + in 2006).
They are reportedly going to turn business.com into a huge online business "Yellow Pages".

Haha - true all - guess yellow pages has totally different connotation in Chinese and will not end up the business pages for China... well special section only haha (is a UK introduction in Hong Kong though, which has sort of died a death... one can pick it up for free... but not seen one in awhile.. hahaa)...

Cheers - Asiaplay

PS: USD5M - spare change... and they needed to save some capital for the programmers of the website & your 蓝页.com IDN Markits... lol
