One would assume that the Business.com brand and URL are still worth quite a bit.
Dex One Realigns Interactive Operations [eon.businesswire.com]
Dex One Corporation today announced it is realigning its interactive operations and will fully integrate Business.com into Dex One. As a result, the company plans to phase out the standalone, national business-to-business sales and marketing operation and focus exclusively on the Dex One business.
"Three years ago, Dex One required an infusion of talent and technology assets to support the expansion of its digital portfolio. The purchase of Business.com enabled Dex One to build the DexKnows.com local search platform, create the DexNet distributed ad network, and develop a robust account and content management system,” said Alfred Mockett, chief executive officer of Dex One. “While the acquisition delivered on a number of fronts, the Business.com operations are no longer viable and are not a part of our long-term plans."
