Comtex News Network, Inc. is a wholesaler of real-time news and related content for major financial and business information distributors. With a specialization in the financial news and content marketplace, Comtex receives, enhances, combines, filters and distributes news and content received from more than 10,000 national and international news bureaus, agencies and publications. The three main product lines produced and distributed by it are: CustomWires(r) - subject-specific newswires compiled from national and international news bureaus, agencies and publications. Presented in a variety of subject combinations, including energy, finance, international and public company information, CustomWires(r) enable distributors to receive news relevant to their target markets; Comtex TopNews - editorially selected top news stories of the day. A range of news story options, including financial markets, vertical markets, general market and world news; and Publisher Full Feeds - delivery from a specific publisher that provides distributors with the complete content offering from that publisher. Comtex has three categories of customers: Co-Brands - Distributors who host financial and business oriented websites on behalf of large financial institutions and major corporations. Distributors electronically query Comtex computers every few seconds to retrieve and use Comtex news content to service their co-brand partners; Databases - These clients have enormous repositories of information; their end-users log on to these systems, conduct complex searches, and are charged for usage. The database accounts also electronically query Comtex computers every few seconds to download Comtex data into their databases; and Per Seat/Enterprise Applications - These clients market to professional investors - either individuals or institutions. Real-time news and information are paramount, so these clients typically use dedicated technology methods to electronically push Comtex data to customers' computer systems on a continual basis. The Company uses a proprietary real-time content processing system designed to process and enhance real-time data. Its competition includes integrators and distributors of news and related content, national and international electronic news and information services, and traditional content providers seeking direct relationships with distributors. At June 30, 2006, Comtex had approximately 25 full-time employees
