About IBSG:
IBSG, a wholly owned subsidiary of IBSG International Inc., commenced business in 1997, and is now in its fifth straight year of profitable operations selling enterprise solutions that greatly enhance the operating efficiency and create revenue for State Small Business Development Centers, business associations (e.g. Chambers of Commerce) and Fortune 1000 corporations through the licensing of its unique turnkey digital service center software, which provides a broad range of digital budgetary, administrative and commercial services (B2B, e-commerce, government to business and enterprise business services) on a single platform known as the NetPool Data System (copyrighted).

As a software provider, system integrator and Application Service Provider, IBSG generates its revenue from license sales, system modifications, system support, and a percentage of monthly customer fees. The typical IBSG license agreement has a five-year term, but, being updated on an annual basis, is almost invariably renewed upon expiration (to date the Company has had only one licensee not renew, which was due to the expiry of the licensee's contract with their client).

IBSG's revenues have grown significantly from $517,954 in 1998 to $5.3 million in 2001. Despite a slower economy and a move into a new vertical market, IBSG's 2002 revenues were approximately $4.5 million, with EBITDA of about $1.95 million, and the Company expects to the soon report 2003 results with an increase in gross revenues and net profits of approximately 20% over its 2002 results.
