naja, wir werden es sehen
ciao stu :O
Hallo Studilo!

So trifft man sich wieder.
Nicht verkaufen - durchhalten. Die kommt schon wieder.
Habe es schon in einem anderen Thread geschrieben. Der konservative
Bernecker hat in einem seiner letzten Aktienbriefe geschrieben, man
solle sich die unterbewertete ICGE mal anschauen. ICGE ist dabei, sich
50 gute Beteiligungen aufzubauen. 35 Beteiligungen haben sie schon.

Genau so extrem wie die ICGE gefallen ist, genau so schnell steigt sie
bei einigen guten Nachrichten wieder. Bin der Meinung, daß auf diesem
billigen Niveau Institutionelle einsteigen.

Servus
@ BMW - Fan
habe eben einen sauteuren und schönen BMW-Cabrio Feiertag hinter mir. brauche daher dringend cash :D:D:D
das mit dem verkauf werde ich mir aber schon noch überlegen!!!
freue mich einfach, wenn icge wieder mal steigt

CSFB on Internet Capital
--1:52 pm - By Tomi Kilgore
Internet Capital Group (ICGE: news, msgs) is rallying $1.81, or 12
percent, to $17.31. Since Monday`s close, the Internet incubator has
climbed 46 percent. Analyst David Dusenbury at CS First Boston said
that of the 6 partner companies that he visited, which represent a
"significant portion of ICG`s total invested capital base," 5 have
completed or are in the process of completing additional funding,
"most at higher valuation levels. He also expects several ICG assets to
file for IPO, which "should provide meaningful catalysts for the
stock." When the company reports on Nov. 8, and at their investor
forum on Nov. 15, Dusenbury thinks the company will release
"previously unavailable" information on some of its assets. He feels
investors should buy the stock ahead of those dates.

E-Commerce Cos - Nikkei
Wednesday, November 1, 2000 05:39 PM

Mail this article to a friend

TOKYO (Nikkei)--Two large trading companies, Itochu Corp. (J.CIT, news, msgs or 8001) and
Sumitomo Corp. (J.SUT, news, msgs or 8053), will form separate alliances with leading U.S.
business-to-business e-commerce firms, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported in its Thursday
morning edition, citing sources at the two companies.

Itochu will set up a Japanese joint venture with Internet Capital Group Inc. (ICGE, news, msgs)
at the end of next month, initially capitalized at Y3 billion-Y4 billion but scheduled to rise to Y7
billion-Y8 billion in the future, company sources said, according to the business daily`s report.

The 50-50 venture will provide e-commerce start-up firms with comprehensive financial
support services, such as credit management, account settlement and payment collection, the
report said.

The firm is expected to start operations in early January and is targeting sales of Y100 billion
annually in three years.

Sumitomo will acquire a $30 million stake in VerticalNet Inc. (VERT, news, msgs) to offer global
e-commerce trading by product segment, such as chemicals and machinery parts, Sumitomo
sources said.

The two companies have already started jointly offering e-commerce trading specializing in
spot transactions of commodity microchips and electronic parts.

Sumitomo`s $30-million investment will be the largest by a Japanese trading company in the
e-commerce sector.

**** Japanese B2B e-commerce transactions are expected to expand to Y70 trillion in 2003, the
report said. ****

PaperExchange lays off 17, restructures business
November 03, 2000 12:00 AM PT
by Adam Feuerstein

PaperExchange, an independent Net marketplace for the pulp and paper industry, has taken the
ax to 14 percent of its workforce as part of a major retooling of its business plan.

The layoffs and restructuring come as PaperExchange`s biggest competitive threat, the
ForestExpress consortium marketplace, signed up another two big paper producers as
participants.

PaperExchange, majority owned by Internet Capital Group (ICGE), fired 17 of 125 employees
last week, mainly in its sales, marketing and administrative departments, confirmed Kent
Dolby, PaperExchange`s CEO.

Dolby says the layoffs were made necessary after the company decided to focus less on its online
exchange for excess paper products, and concentrate instead on developing and selling
Internet-based business applications for the pulp and paper industry.

"We are focusing our efforts on providing e-business solutions, so we are adding people on the
technology side, while we had employee imbalances in other parts of the company," Dolby said.

Mutual funds give incubators a second chance
By Stephen Lucey
Redherring.com, November 03, 2000

Wait a minute. Haven`t investors supposedly had their fill of Web stocks, and hasn`t the initial public
offering market ground to a halt? So why are the stocks of Internet incubators CMGI (Nasdaq:
CMGI) and Internet Capital Group (Nasdaq: ICGE) up 40 percent and 56 percent, respectively, since
Monday?

Just call it the October effect. It`s not fear of another market crash or fear of bad third-quarter
earnings. Instead, it`s mutual-fund managers cleaning up their portfolios and taking long-term losses
to offset gains for the year before October 31 -- the fiscal year end for many funds.

In an effort to offset capital gains in their funds for the year, many fund managers dumped the losers
in their portfolios -- and for many funds the list of losers was led by technology and Internet-related
companies. Some of the hardest-hit stocks were CMGI and Internet Capital Group. CMGI has
plunged 84 percent this year, while CMGI has dropped 89 percent.

But now with October behind us, mutual-fund managers seem to be leading the charge back into
some battered technology stocks, and the very companies they were dumping are heading the list of
names to buy -- the incubators.

CSFB zu Internet Capital Group
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


CSFB empfiehlt Investoren Internet Capital Group als Kauf. ICGE veröffentlicht am 8. November seine Quartalszahlen und veranstaltet am 15. November sein "Investor Forum". CSFB geht davon aus, daß im Vorfeld noch einige Neuigkeiten verkündet werden. Man habe auch erfahren, daß 5 von 6 Beteiligungen, die einen signifikanten Anteil des investierten Geldes ausmachen, kurz vor weiteren Finanzierungen stünden (oft zu höheren Bewertungen). DES weiteren rechnet man damit, daß einige Beteiligungen ihr IPO beantragen, was ICGE`s Aktie äußerst positiv beeinflussen dürfte.

Denver Area Information Technology Managers Can Now Staff Projects Online Via Vivant; Vivant Offering Quality Contractor Sourcing Free of Charge

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 3, 2000--Vivant!(TM) Corporation, an Internet Capital Group (Nasdaq:ICGE) backed company and the Internet leader in contract labor acquisition and management, is launching Vivant`s Individual Service today in Denver and surrounding areas.

Project managers can log on to the Vivant network (www.vivant.com) at no charge and find quality IT contractors to fill their technology openings.

The service allows individual project managers to fill their IT staffing needs with quality contractors. Vivant links project managers directly with some of the most respected staffing firms in the region. The entire process occurs online -- from job requisition to candidate submission, including the ability for users to rank candidates based on the best match for the job criteria.

Once candidates are interviewed and a selection is made, project managers can finalize the contract, view hours incurred to date, analyze performance, and renew contracts via Vivant. Ultimately, the service provides a fast and streamlined method to find the right contractor. An individual project manager merely needs to register on the Vivant Website in order to access the service.

Vivant is making the service available on a regional basis. Staffing suppliers, representing hundreds of thousands of contractors, are actively engaged including the Denver offices of national suppliers Renaissance Worldwide and Hall Kinion and Greenwood Village-based Infotech Solutions. Skill sets cover a breadth of IT capabilities ranging from such skills as database administrators to help desk personnel.

Gartner Group estimates that by 2003, 60% of large companies will use contract workers to fulfill more than half their IT activities. However, the need for skilled contractors is especially strong in the area of Information Technology, where spending for contractor talent is greater than $50 billion a year in the United States alone.

"Today, Colorado is experiencing historically low levels of unemployment, close to the lowest in the nation. Project managers who are having to cope with finding qualified people under these conditions will find Vivant provides an exceptional tool," said Cindy Padnos, CEO and president of Vivant. "The Vivant Individual Service provides a pain-free way of filling their vacancies, empowering them with information to control their costs and track their IT contractor performance. We do this by replacing inefficient paper-based systems for acquiring contractors with a Web based solution that can fill vacancies within days instead of weeks or months."

About Vivant! Corporation

Vivant! is a business-to-business service for acquiring and managing the contractor workforce. Vivant unites contractor buyers and suppliers online, providing the best match for the right project -- at the right rate -- quickly and easily. Vivant is backed by the Internet Capital Group (Nasdaq:ICGE) and AVI. The company is headquartered at 180 Grand Avenue, Suite 300, Oakland, California.

eAutoWorld and Auto Retailing on the Web Accelerate Towards Detroit Conference With New Partnership

RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- eMarketWorld announced today that a partnership has been formed with DealersEdge to develop and program a dealer strategies track for the upcoming eAutoWorld conference, scheduled for April 10-12, 2001 in Detroit. The goal in uniting DealersEdge and eAutoWorld is to create a platform where dealers can learn about new revenue opportunities and cost savings created by the Internet.

"We couldn`t be more pleased with our new association with eAutoWorld," said Jim Muntz, publisher of DealersEdge. "Over the past three years the Auto Retailing on the Web Conferences (AROW) have grown in attendance and reputation, but managing conferences is not our core business. This cooperative agreement marries the excellent conference management skills of eAutoWorld with the customer base and strong relationship that DealersEdge/WD&S Publishing has with the auto dealer community. We are especially pleased that eAutoWorld shares our commitment to content of the highest quality and specific relevancy to the needs and concerns of retail auto dealers."

"Jim Muntz and DealersEdge have been extremely successful in communicating with dealers for more than 20 years," said Greg Colizzi, vice president of eAutoWorld at eMarketWorld. "Merging Automotive Retailing on the Web with eAutoWorld for the Detroit conference will offer the dealers in-depth insight and information for selling more cars, generating higher margins and creating new revenue streams through F & I and aftermarket parts and accessories."

eAutoWorld, which addresses ecommerce issues throughout the entire automotive industry, offers the opportunity to discuss the effects of the Internet. Rich program content is developed for automotive parts suppliers, new and used car dealers, the vast aftermarket parts and specialty accessories arena, and the emerging world of telematics (iVehicle). Additionally, eAutoWorld is focused on the potential challenges and opportunities of working with the other segments of the industry as the Internet opens new doors of collaboration and increases profitability. Participation in the conference ensures the opportunity to learn and implement the strategies to profit from automotive eCommerce.

eAutoWorld will take place from April 10-12, 2000 at Cobo Hall in Detroit. For additional information, contact 800-942-9770 or www.eAutoWorld.com . About DealersEdge/WD&S Publishing

leute, ich hab mich schon eingedeckt und warte auf die 100 Euro. :-)
Na, na, na! Da werden ja schon wieder euphorische Kursziele in den
Raum geworfen. Je steiler der Anstieg, desto tiefer der Fall. Das ha-
ben wir doch mit ICGE schon mitgemacht. Mir ist ein gemäßigter aber
kontinuierlicher Kursanstieg lieber. Die Tiefs haben wir aber sicher
gesehen.

MfG B-F
dagegen wird keiner was tun können,
denn alle wollen doch dabei sein.
alle wollen geld !!!
und hier ist ne grosse chance.

also abwarten und staunen

:-)
@BMW-FAN:
Dito!
Wer tatsächlich bei ICGE, INSP oder CMGi auf ATH wartet, darf sich wohl enorm in Geduld üben...
Trotzdem auf jeden Fall seit CSFB-Statement und dem Börsenumfeld optimistisch,
siscoinvestor
@siscoinvestor

Es muß doch nicht gleich das ATH sein. Es genügen doch 100 % Anstieg.
Auf alle Fälle werden die guten Internet-Firmen wieder steigen.

MfG B-F
@B-F
Ich wundere mich bloss, dass viele Kleinanleger immernoch daran glauben, dass nun wieder die Zeiten einer Herbstralley a lá 1999/2000 an der Reihe seien.
zu den 100%: Ich persönlich brauche schon mehr. Und die kriege ich. :)
MfG siscoinvestor
weiss jemand, wie die Analystenschätzungen zu ICGE ausehen?
Werden gute, oder zu gute Zahlen erwartet?

Gruß

Frasage
Ich hoffe daß dieAnalystenschätzungen zu ICGE gut ausehen, sonst sehe ich wirklich schwarz.
AMEN
hallo leute,
da ich recht stark in icge investiert bin, werde ich heute wohl vorsichtshalber einen teil verkaufen. ich traue diesem papier in den nächsten tagen alles zu zwischen 15 und 25 usd. mein durchschnittlicher kaufpreis liegt bei 18.60 usd.
erbitte meinungen
gruss stu
Warte besser ab . Wenn wirklich eine Umstrukurierung stattfindet traue ich dem Papier noch einiges zu.
Hallo Studilo!

Bleib dabei! Ich kann mir einfach nicht vorstellen, daß eine Firma
wie ICGE innerhalb von 6 o. 8 Monaten einfach nichts mehr wert ist.
Wenn ich Du wäre, würde ich es riskieren.
Du weißt ja nicht, wo ich wohne, also kann mir ja auch nicht so viel
passieren, wenn`s schief geht. ;)

Servus

P.S. Gefühlssache meinerseits! Aber wenn Du schon fragst......

vielleicht riskier ichs doch, ich weiss eben noch nicht.aber ich bin dir für deine aufbauenden antworten dankbar, da ja sonst niemand reagiert.
auch wenn ich wüsste, wo du bist, würde ich dich nicht überfahren, wenns schief geht, schliesslich ist jeder für seine handlungen selbst verantwortlich.
auf die zukunft
ciao stu :):)
@studilo

Mir fällt auf, daß CMGI u. ICGE seit einigen Tagen steigen. Da ist
doch irgendwas im Busch. Überhaupt laufen seit einigen Tagen die In-
ternet-Oldies (RNWK, DCLK, YHOO, EXDS usw.) ganz gut. Ich hab so das
Gefühl, daß da in nächster Zeit mal ein Sprung in alte Höhen erfolgt.
Ob sich da die Institutionellen eindecken? Die ganzen I-Nets sind ja
auch spottbillig geworden.

Mach`s gaut u. werd` reich. Soll kein Aufbau sein, nein ich glaube das
wirklich, was ich hier von mir gebe.

Servus
Heute wird`s spannend: Meine Hoffnungen liegen bei Gore, die Befürchtungen bei Bush. Ebenfalls heute kommen die Zahlen nachbörslich an die Öffentlichkeit.
Es könnten sogar einige der von CSFB angesprochenen brisanten Neuigkeiten bekannt gegeben werden. Wäre doch ganz nett zu einem nettem Umsatz. Denke aber dass die relevanten News erst auf dem Investor Forum unsere Augen oder eher Ohren erreichen werden.
Bis dahin, was zum Lesen:

@siscoinvestor

Wieso befürchtest Du, daß Bush das Rennen macht? Was macht Dir da so
Angst?

Servus
hallo leute,
bush ist leider gewählt, sie müssen zwar nochmals nachzählen, habe ich eben gehört. hoffnung???

@ BMW-Fan
gore ist ein internet fan, bush ist traditionalist. wäre al gore neuer präsident, würde die börse, vorallem der nasdaq mit den internet werten freundlicher reagieren.
ich persönlich bin jedoch der meinung,dass die wahl die kurse nur unwesentlich beeinflusst,glaube aber, dass es jetzt so oder so richtung norden geht.
ciao stu :)
@studiloß

Richtig, der Präsident muß nicht unbedingt It-Fan sein. Er muß nur
wissen, was das Internet für die Wirtschaft bedeutet. Und Bush weiß
das sicher auch, daß ohne Internet nichts mehr geht.
Ich bin der Meinung, daß man für Bush sein muß, wenn man Aktien be-
sitzt u. mit diesen Gewinne machen will. Gore`s Ideen erscheinen mir
zu "grün" u. damit nicht so wirtschaftsfreundlich.

Servus
längerfristig gesehen,was ja wichtig ist, gebe ich dir recht.
für einen schnellen kurssprung wäre gore wohl besser, denn die spinnen, die amis!!!
hauptsache, es geht vorwärts...
PS: resultat noch nicht definitiv.
ciao stu
sicherlich wuerde gore`s sieg einen kurssprung
der internetwerte bedeuten. laengerfristig
ist es aber egal, die wirtschaft und der markt
lassen sich von der politik nicht beeinflussen.

oder meint ihr, dass die oelfirmen in texas mit einen
KUV von 50 bewertet werden, falls bush gewinnt?

bush hat seine berater, denen die internetentwicklung
in die augen springen wird, um nicht uebersehen zu werden.

auch in einem land, in dem der president `traditionell`
ist, kann man diese entwicklung nicht bremsen.
auch in einem land, in dem der kanzler
`keine aktien besitzt` koennen aktiengesellschaften
wie pilze vom boden schiessen und boersenindizes
aufwaerts gehen.

Press Release
Internet Capital Group Announces Third Quarter Results
ICG Realigns Resources Around Key Partner Companies and Takes Decisive Actions to Reinforce Its Financial Strength
WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 8, 2000-- Internet Capital Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:ICGE - news) today reported its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2000.

``As ICG and the B2B market continue to grow and evolve, ICG is focusing human and capital resources on partner companies with the most potential to return near-term value for our shareholders. We are also taking decisive action to strengthen our financial position while continuing to build on our proven track record of value creation,`` said Walter Buckley, president and CEO of ICG.

Intensifying focus and discipline

``Building on our key theme last quarter, in the third quarter ICG intensified its financial and human resources on the most promising companies in its network. We believe that giving more attention to a smaller number of companies will fuel the development of our leading partner companies, and, in turn, generate greater shareholder value,`` said Buckley.

ICG has completed a rigorous process to review its companies using a stringent set of criteria. This exercise has identified fifteen high potential, private companies in the U.S. in which ICG has deployed $1.7 billion of capital.

In addition, ICG will continue to support its network of private U.S. companies with an emphasis on those that are developing and close to achieving these criteria but currently fall short of one or more of these disciplined measurements. Partner companies that do not meet these criteria over time, or where ICG does not own a meaningful stake, will be managed to maximize value.

For example, ICG sold its stake in Centrimed to an Internet-based health care trading exchange called Global Health Care Exchange (GHCX). Centrimed will be the chosen technology platform to enhance supply chain efficiency for the online health care industry exchange. ICG received $15.2 million in September 2000 and $9.7 million in October of 2000 for its $8.0 million stake in Centrimed. The Company could receive additional cash contingent upon meeting certain levels of performance.

The Company also announced today actions to strengthen its position and to reallocate resources, including a workforce reduction of 35%, a facilities reduction and fixed asset write-downs. These actions will result in a one-time fourth quarter charge of approximately $25-30 million, of which $4-5 million will be cash.

ICG also announced its plans to move its geographic operations in Europe and Japan into separate entities that will seek external financing and in which ICG will continue to hold a substantial stake.

Financial Strength and Flexibility

``As the B2B market evolves, we intend to manage our business with a high level of financial discipline and rigor. We will maintain a solid position enabling us to support the development of our leading partner companies,`` said Ed West, Chief Financial Officer of Internet Capital Group.

During the third quarter, the Company spent a total of $120 million in cash for new name and follow-on acquisitions. Cash, short term investments and available for sale securities totaled $513.9 million at September 30, 2000 on a separate company basis.

``With more than $500 million in liquid resources at quarter end, access to multiple financing sources, and most importantly the ability to monetize non-strategic assets, we have significant financial flexibility going forward.`` said West.

Acquisition Highlights

During the quarter, ICG deployed $26.8 million of cash and $13.6 million in ICG stock on new name acquisitions, including eMarket Capital, Fuelspot, Foods Infomart, OnMedica, and Sourceree. Additionally ICG spent $93.2 million in cash and $197.8 million in ICG stock for 21 follow-on acquisitions in its existing partner companies, increasing its ownership position in many of these.

Partner Company Highlights

One of the measures of ICG`s progress is the revenue growth of its partner companies. On a pro-forma unaudited basis, the aggregate reported revenues of all of ICG`s partner companies grew approximately 630%, from $81.5 million in the third quarter of 1999 to $594.7 million in the third quarter of 2000.

Excluding revenues from reselling, proforma unaudited aggregate reported revenues of all of ICG`s partner companies grew 353%, from $56.8 million in the third quarter of 1999 to $257.5 million in the third quarter of 2000.

``ICG has a proven track record of value creation from both public and private market liquidity events and I am confident that by continuing to concentrate on our key companies with financial and operating discipline as our guide, we will create significant value for ICG shareholders,`` said Buckley.

Quarterly Financial Results

For the quarter ended September 30, 2000, the Company reported a loss of $263.9 million or $.94 per diluted share, which includes the net effect of gains principally from the sales of ownership interests and losses from impairment charges resulting from the write down of certain assets, compared with a loss of $15.3 million or $.07 per diluted share in the corresponding period in 1999.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2000, ICG reported a loss of $98.7 million or $.36 per diluted share as compared with a loss of $6.4 million or $.03 per diluted share a year ago.

This quarter, of ICG`s 80 partner companies, 14 are consolidated, 48 are accounted for under the equity method and 18 are accounted for under the cost method of accounting.

ICG`s strategy is to acquire and build business-to-business e-commerce companies. Because many of these companies are in the early stage of their development, they have been and are expected to continue to generate losses.

The performance of these partner companies, coupled with the occasional and unplanned nature of the gains related to ICG`s ownership in them, will most likely continue to result in wide fluctuations of the Company`s quarterly results.

@all: Bitte alle morgen mit Helm in dem Schützgraben versinken!
Pendeln zur Zeit nachbörslich bei 12$.
Muss schon sagen: die 94 Cent Verlust sind extrem viel.
Da hilft die Entlassung der 50 Mitarbeiter auch nicht besonders. Aber, vielleicht doch...

@studilu
Hoffe du hast noch ein Teil verkauft!!! ( Hätte ich wahrscheinlich aber auch nicht )

@president-frage
Von dem unkompententen Bush geht insofern die Gefahr aus, dass seine Pläne zu Steuerentlastungen zu Inflation führen könnten, was wiederrum Alan Greenspan auf den Plan rufen würde.
Unglücklicherweise denken die Amis dass die Wirtschaft von alleine weiterhin halbwegs laufen wird. Deshalb erlaubten sie sich den "Trottel" Bush.
Wenn ich nicht gerade in bestimmte Sektoren investiert bin ( Pharma, Tabak, Finanzen, MSFT, usw. ), was ich nicht bin, bringt mir Mr. Bush nicht allzuviel, ausser dass der Gesamtmarkt steigt. Ok. Das ist schon viel. Andererseits stellt Bush selbst aber eine Gafahr für die Wirtschaft dar. Der Internet-erfinder Gore würde nachhaltig besser für die Wirtschaft Amerikas sein. Denn nicht er, sondern sein Rivale könnte demnächst durch seine Geschenke an die Oberliga ein Loch in den Haushalt Amerikas herbeiführen. ;)

Die letzte Hoffnung liegt kurzfristig wahrscheinlich doch in Bush, dem Investor Forum am 15. November und den Aussichten für die IPO`s.

We`ll see

habe leider zuwenige verkauft!!! ( nur 1/3 ) schade schade :O:O:O
wer konnte schon mit solchen zahlen rechnen.
aus trotz müsste man eigentlich bei 10 !?! gleich wieder einsteigen, aber meine vernunft sagt mir, dieses geld in einen anderen titel zu investieren.und das mach ich auch.ich habe da noch so ein paar auf meiner liste.
auf bessere zeiten stu :D:D:D:D:D
ist ja mächtig was los heute.
bei grossen volumen wird verkauft wie der teufel.
kurs war schon bei 10,05 , jetzt wieder über 11 usd.
was passiert denn hier ???
ich bleibe mit meinen 2/3, welche ich gestern leider nicht abgegeben habe wahrscheinlich drin, solange es icge gibt :D
auf bessere zeiten in ferner zukunft.

mea culpa, maxima culpa! Soll ich Dir meine Adresse verraten, damit
Du Dich an mir rächen kannst. Tut mir leid, aber hier haben wir uns
wohl alle im Gesamtmarkt u. ganz besonders in ICGE getäuscht. Ich Depp
rate Dir noch zu halten. Aber habe selbst auch nicht verkauft.
Wobei ich jedoch hierzu sagen muß, dieser Crash der derzeit stattfin-
det, der bereinigt den Markt. Hier greift ja panische Angst um sich.
Das ist gut. Jetzt gibt es Kaufkurse mit eindeutigen 100-Prozent-
oder -mehr-Chancen. Kostolany bezeichnete dies als Marktreinigungs-
Phasen. Augen zu und durch!!

Hallo Leute,
ich bin ein blödes Arschloch!! Habe fast 4100 DM Verlust mit
dieser Scheiße namens Internet Cap. Group. Wäre ich blos aus-
gestiegen. Die Firma ist zu blöd Gewinn zu machen. Wäre lieber in Arbia oder Commerce One eingestiegen. Brauche erst einmal etwa
Hochprozentieges! Bis blad Benny
@ BMW-Fan,
ich nehms mit humor. die 2/3 , welche ich noch mein eigen nennen darf, sehe ich einfach als langfristig gut investiertes kapital. eine b2b firma muss ja nicht gewinne schreiben, damit ihr kurs wieder vernünftig steigen kann. und in ferner,ferner zukunft wird auch der icge kurs wieder in akzeptable höhen steigen, sagen wir mal 100 usd.
dann lachen wieder alle, welche einen einstiegskurs von knapp 19 haben.ich freue mich darauf. bin übrigens momentan bei neof mit grosser stückzahl zu ep 1,80 usd investiert.könnte auch für dich interessant sein. kürzel hier nf3.
ciao stu :D:D
Hi Studilo

Muß ich mir später o. morgen mal anschauen die nf3. Was is`n das?
Freut mich, daß Du die Sache mit Fassung trägst. Wenigstens kein sol-
cher Jammerlappen wie viele andere. Mal hat man Pech, dann hat man
Glück. So ist`s nun mal an der Börse.
Übrigens fällt Dir auf beim Durchlesen der Foren u. Threads, daß die
Stimmung langsam in Panik umschlägt. Ein sehr gutes Zeichen. Erst wenn
Angst u. Panik alles andere übertönen, dann können wir an einen An-
stieg der Kurse denken. Ich habe ja nicht so viel Zeit, aber bin mal
kurz über einige Foren gefahren. Besonders am Neuen Markt, da wird`s
ganz schön arg. Das gleiche hatten wir 1999 im Spätsommer. Und - was
kam dann, als niemand mehr daran glaubte? Ein richtiger extremer Ab-
fall müßte nun her, damit alle Zitterer rausgeschüttelt werden. Die
Angst ist noch zu gering. Noch steigen immer wieder welche zu.
Zur Zeit paßt einfach alles, um einen richtig "netten" Crash zu insze-
nieren: Zinsen, Erträge, Euro-Dollar, Ölpreis, Wahl-Krampf usw. usw.
Das ist der Stoff aus dem die Crash-Träume gemacht werden.

Servus
@ BMW-Fan,

es stimmt nur bedingt, das mit dem glück und dem pech, denn durch genaues beobachten und sammeln von verschiedensten infos über eine fa kann man risiken begrenzen und dem glück ein wenig nachhelfen. das schliesst natürlich nicht aus, dass man auch mal fehlinterpretiert, oder das glück zu stark herausfordert.wichtig ist, dass man verschiedene quellen anzapft.
die panik vorallem am nm stufe ich auch als chance ein und ich wünschte mir, momentan etwas liquider zu sein.der einstiegszeitpunkt für einige nm-titel rückt immer näher.
auf die zukunft
ciao stu :):O
@studilo

Ich habe mich über Nortel monatelang informiert u. bin zu den Ent-
schluß gekommen, daß es sich um eine gute Firma, eine gute Technolo-
gie, ein gutes Management usw. handelt. Ich habe die Aktie schließ-
lich gekauft. 2 Wochen später kamen die Zahlen. 1 C über den Erwar-
tungen, Umsatz ebenfalls gut gesteigert. In der Konferenz über die
weiteren Erwartungen sagte man, daß die Umsätze vermutlich nicht mehr
in dem Ausmaß wie bisher zu steigern sind. Ergebnis: die Aktie war
1/3 weniger wert. Was ist das nun: Glück, Pech o. schlechtes Beobach-
ten u. Sammeln von Informationen. Ich glaube, daß in nächster Zeit
noch weitere Firmen mit diesen Prognosen Kurse abstürzen lassen. Siehe
heute Dell. Wenn da mal nicht eine Rezession in USA auf dem Weg ist.
Wir werden sehen.

Servus
@BulleBenny,

Junge hör mit dem Gejammer auf! Viele sind wie ich zu 100% in Technologieaktien investiert und das nicht kurz- sondern langfristig, was bedeutet, daß man in der Regel Kaufkurse hat, die deutlich über den heutigen Notierungen liegen. Da sind DM 4.100 Verlust nun wirklich Kleinkram. Aber auch für alle, die 6-stellig investiert sind und zur Zeit auf ca. 50% Verlust sitzen, wird die Sonne wieder aufgehen, und je mehr Leute jammern, fluchen und verkaufen, desto schneller wird das passieren. Also leg dich zum Winterschlaf und freu dich im nächsten Frühjahr über den Kurs von ICGE.

Gruß,
Bruno.

Hallo ***
die Meldung das ICGE niemals Gewinn macht kam vom Vorstand.
Das ganze war in der Telebörse im NTV zu sehen (Liveschaltung nach Amerika an die NASDAQ). Die Sprecherin (Name weiß ich nicht mehr) hat dies als Hammer bezeichnet. Es wurde von 6 Cent Verlust pro Aktie gesprochen und dies sei der Hammer, so habe der Vorstand gesagt, daß ICG wahrscheinlich nie Gewinn abwerfen würde.

Internet Capital Group shares drop after warning
NEW YORK, Feb 25 (Reuters) - Shares of Internet Capital Group Inc. <ICGE.O>, a firm that invests in business-to-business Web site
operators, dropped sharply on Friday, a day after the company warned that it could not say when it might show a profit.

The shares opened on the Nasdaq at 107, off about 12 points from their closing price on Thursday, before recovering slightly by early afternoon to
trade at 109-5/8, down 9-1/2 for the session. The stock closed at 119-1/8 on Thursday. Internet Capital (ICG) on Thursday said it expected to
post losses for "many quarters in the foreseeable future" and did not know if or when it would ever turn a profit.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Die hervorgehobene Textstelle:
Internet Capital Group sagte am Donnerstag daß sie erwarten, in vielen Quartalen der absehbaren Zukunft, Verluste zu melden.
Und daß sie nicht wissen, ob oder wann sie jemals profitabel werden.

von *** 30.09.00 11:16:07 1961285
ICGE hat das Vertrauen an der Börse verloren! Seit der Vorstand im Frühjahr öffentlich erklärt hat, daß Sie nicht wissen, wann Sie in die Gewinnzone kommen, oder überhaupt Gewinne machen! Eine solche Aussage an der Börse ist das Todesurteil, und seither gehts nur abwärts. Ob ICGE das Vertrauen der Investoren zurückgewinnen kann ist fraglich!! Auf jedemfall muß der Vorstand weg, der diese Aussage getätigt hat. Erst dann sehe ich aufwärtspotential!!

der sinn einer beteiligungsgeselschaft ist nicht
gewinne in usd oder euro zu machen. sie sammelt
anteilsscheine, versucht sie zu vermehren.
erst diese kann man in einer waehrung
bewerten. und wer daran nicht glaubt,
soll sich nicht mit aktien eindecken,
sondern das geld in die matratze stopfen.
nur dann kann man einen jahresueberschuss vorzeigen.

der guuruh hat ebenfalls nicht vor, jemals gewinne
zu machen, da er liquide mittel in aktien, frauen

Hallo Leute,

hallo Bruno Brazil was heißt da mit dem Gejammer! Was soll ich
den schon tun. Ich finde nur eines. Wenn eine Firma names
Internet Cap. Group im Juli Quartszahlen veröffentlich und
dort schon ein Verlust von 187 Mio. aufweist und nichts sagt
wie es weiter geht und dann im Nov. Zahlen raus bringt die
Scheiße sind finde ich das echt eine große Verarschung. Jede
andere Firma siehe Nortel, Lucent, AT&T u.s.w melden im Vorfeld
das sieh ihre Ziele nicht schaffen! Und was macht Internet Cap.
Group sie halten ihren Mund bis zum Nov. Toller Trick. Ich
würde nicht Jammer, wenn das Unternehmen im Vorfeld etwas
davon gesagt hätte. Ich hätte mich und vielleicht auch viele
andere von uns von diesen Wert vielleicht getrennt oder auf
lange Sicht einmal in das Depo gelegt bzw. belassen. Und außerdem
wie kommst du darauf das Intenet Cap. Group im Frühjahr wieder
gut da stehen wird! Bis jetzt ist nicht klar wie sie den Verlust
auffangen wollen außer Leute entlassen. Finde die haben keine
gute Argummente. Finde da CMGI gibt sich mehr Mühe und versucht
es mit Erfolg. Obwohl Internet Cap. Group CMGI ganz schön belastet.
Deshalb kann ich mir nicht Vorstellen das Internet Cap. Group
im Frühjahr wieder gut da stehen. Internet Cap. Group steigt erst
wieder wenn die wiede gute Zahlen bringen. see you Benny

Internet Capital Adopts Shareholders`
Rights Plan

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Internet Capital Group (NasdaqNM:ICGE -
news), a business-to-business and electronic commerce company, said
on Friday its board of directors had adopted a shareholder rights plan,
triggered when someone tries to buy at least 15 percent of its stock.

The company said holders will get a preferred stock purchase right for
each common share outstanding at the close of business on Dec. 6.

Each right entitles the holder to buy from the company one
ten-thousandth of a share of Series A Junior participating preferred
stock of Internet Capital Group at an exercise price of $100 per right.
Initially, the rights will be attached to the company`s common stock
and will not be exercisable.

The rights will become exercisable and will separate from the common stock ten calendar days after a
person or group acquires, or announces the intent to acquire, beneficial ownership of 15 percent or
more of the company`s common stock.

The rights will also become exercisable ten business days after the announcement of a tender offer or
an exchange offer to acquire 15 percent or more of the outstanding common stock.

Internet Capital Group`s shares rose $1-9/32, or 21 percent, to $7-3/8 Friday on Nasdaq, above its
year low of $5-10/16 but way below the company`s 52-week high of $212.
Kann mir das mal bitte jemand übersetzen??
gibt es hier Aktien geschenkt?

Wäre Euch für Übersetzungen ins Deutsche sehr verbunden.
Danke
Als ehem. CMGI-Fan grüße ich alle ICGE-Fans!

Also Leute, wenn ein stock von 212 auf 5,62 abstürzt, dann sind
das weder Gewinnmitnahmen noch Abbau von Überbewertung noch Schwäche
des ganzen Sektors, sondern das kann IMHO eigentlich nur bedeuten,
die Firma ist P L E I T E !

Tut mir leid, aber alles andere macht keinen Sinn. Für 98% Verlust
gibt es IMHO keine andere Erklärung.



Dann wäre der leichte Rebound von 6 auf 8, den man im Bild sieht,
ein sog. dead cat bounce. Bei CMGI sieht es ganz ähnlich aus. Ich
mache mir auch dort keine Illusionen.

Denkt dran, wie es IMMER in solchen Fällen abläuft: Der Kurs fällt
ohne erkennbaren Grund, und dann wird die Begründung nachgeliefert.
Jüngst bei Informatec und Gigabell schön zu sehen.

Die Kurse von CMGI, ICGE, Infomatec und Gigabell verlaufen fast
deckungsgleich, inklusive der dead cat bounces. Von 2 wissen wir,
daß sie pleite sind, von den andern 2 wissen wirs noch nicht,
das dürfte der einzige Unterschied sein.

Was haltet Ihr von meinen Vermutungen?

Wer kann ein Beispiel nennen, wo sich ein Kurs nach 98% Absturz
nochmal erholt hat?
was ist denn das, jetzt schon 56500 papiere gehandelt,
obwohl nasdaq noch nicht eroeffnet hat?
Hallo Leute,
nicht schlecht oder! 5,875$ -9,62% Langsam aber sicher
kommen bald die 5$. Auch nicht schlecht. Hätte ihr
das gelaubt, noch im Janauar 2000! Wenn´s so weiter geht,
gehen bald einige Firmen unter bzw. pleite. Das werden
schöne Weihnachten und 2001 Vorsätze. Hätte ich auch nicht
geglaut. See you benny

THE DAY AHEAD: Analysts sing value
tune for Internet Capital Group

By Larry Dignan TDAIN ZDII

COMMENTARY -- Business-to-business
incubator Internet Capital Group (Nasdaq:
ICGE) has pared its workforce, portfolio and
ambition as the market for initial public
offerings has dried up. Meanwhile, investors
and analysts have abandoned shares of this
former Wall Street darling.
Part of the fascination with ICG is the
neverending -- sometimes misguided --
optimism of analysts. But most of the value
chatter is attributed to the "if" factor. If the
Nasdaq rebounds in 2001, if IPOs make a
comeback and if ICG can weather the current
tech slowdown, there are compelling reasons
why ICG could rebound.

One issue for ICG is valuation -- a tricky topic
since there are no earnings and the company
rises and falls with the value of its privately
held portfolio companies. ICG shares are
hovering around $6, down from a high of
$212.

Analysts contend that ICG looks cheap based
on the underlying value of its core companies
in its network such as ICG Commerce,
AssetTRADE, Logistics.com and RightWorks. If
those four companies go public eventually and
garner a market capitalization of $400 million,
you`ve nearly equaled ICG`s current valuation.

In a research note, David Farina, an analyst at
William Blair, said he was heartened by the
light crowd at ICG`s recent analyst meeting.
"Attendance at the meeting was light, but
because of the stock`s position we were not
surprised," said Farina. "We took this as a good
sign that most of the larger brokerage firms
that were all over the stock in the $200 range
are now running for cover at $10, which is
where we believe the real money is made."

And Farina isn`t alone. Many analysts are
calling ICG a value play even though they
officially rate ICG a "neutral." ICG shares aren`t
going to be in favor any time soon, but when
the IPO market cheers up, the company will
have a handful of well-developed companies
ready to hit the market.

When ICG reported its third quarter earnings,
it said it would focus on 15 companies that
hold a top market position, solid management
and positive cash flow prospects. Of course,
ICG had to focus to conserve cash, but analysts
said it`s a blessing in disguise.

ICG is at a turning point where it has become
more prudent with its funds and will invest
most of its money ($514 million in cash and
short-term investments) on its strongest
holdings. "We believe that longer-term value
investors may want to revisit ICG given its 15
core private holdings, adequate cash position
and tremendous market opportunity," said
Michael Legg, an analyst at Jeffries & Co.

Here are the talking points:

The ICG portfolio: ICG`s top companies
include ICG Commerce, AssetTRADE,
InvestorForce, eCredit, Logistics.com and
RightWorks. Those six companies presented at
ICG`s analyst day to give a clear message --
ICG has developed companies in its pipeline.
ICG has also narrowed its criteria for picking
winners. Companies need a potential market
of $50 billion, growth of at least 100 percent
for the foreseeable future, a complete
management team, a defensible market and
the ability to generate more than $100 million
in pre-tax profits in three to five years. ICG`s
top companies are showing traction.

Big partners: ICG recently announced it
would couple its ICG Commerce with Andersen
Consulting. Meanwhile, Ford Motor (NYSE: F)
has become increasingly involved with ICG
partner companies. Ford invested in ICG in
December 1999.

Management: Despite a volatile stock price,
ICG has recruited managers from GE, GM, Delta
Airlines and Safeguard Scientifics.

Clear focus: ICG hasn`t turned into an
operating company like CMGI (Nasdaq: CMGI)
and has stuck to its knitting. Even though it
has been a rough year for B2B stocks, ICG has
stuck with the category for good reason.

There are risks -- the IPO market will have to
rebound and ICG`s success will depend on a
handful of customers -- but ICG is making
some good moves. "We believe that investors
with some patience will make a lot of money in
ICG at current levels," said Farina.TDAIN

Meines Wissens jedoch hat ICGE die Ariba-beteiligungen schon abgestossen. Hmmm.

Hallo Leute,

naja hoffe nicht das was CMGI passiert ist bzw. der Absturz!
Obwohl sie die Analysten nach unten übertroffen haben,hoffentlich passiert das nicht ICGE! Obwohl sie kosten ja gerade mal fast 6$! Weiter geht es ja bald eh nicht mehr! Wann kommen eingentlich neuen Quartszahlen! Ich weis zwar die anderen Kammen erst am 8. November trozdem. Einfach mal wissen. Muß mich ja schon vorbereiten. Wer wies! see you Benny
@benny

Zahlen von ICGE kommen erst wieder am 7.Februar (Quelle justwhispers.com; wie stellt man eigtl. `nen Link hier rein?)

ha det god
[url ]link[/url ] aber ohne Freizeichen in den eckigen Klammern

ICGE heut unter 5$, was soll bloß werden........ :rolleyes: SG
Danke noch für Zahlen.
Nicht schelcht oder 7,38% Prozent im Plus
(www.amex.com) Hoffentlich geht es bald wieder aufwärts!
See you Benny
@superscout

"Es geht loss.... erstes Kursziel .. 8- 10$ ... :_ ))"

Es geht weiterhin LOS !

Mein Kursziel < 1 $ (evtl. Chapter 11)

Diese Aktie gehört zu den Kandidaten für :

"NASDAQ-Aktie des Jahres"
Jetzt wird sich zeigen was Internet Cap. Group wirklich drauf hat. Entweder sie wird untergehen wie ein U-Boot oder sie geht ab wie eine Rakete. Die Zahlen kommen aber erst im Feb. Bis dahin kann sie ja noch etwas hoch unter runter gehen. Sind ja erst 97% von Höchskurs entfernt. bis bald benny
@Bulle Benny und alle anderen LT-Investierten

Wie ich merke, bis Du ( wie viele andere hier, mir nicht ausgeschlossen )bei ICGE ein bisschen zu spät eingestiegen und ebenfalls ein bisschen zu spät ausgestiegen. Tja, wer zu spät kommt... ... oder auch die Börse.
Nun wäre es glaube ich an der Zeit, sich z.B vorzurechnen, was ein 200, 300 oder meinetwegen 500%-er Anstieg für ICGE und unsere Depotposition bedeuten würde.
Ausgehend von vom derzeitigem Kurs von 3,62$ kommen wir bei 100% zu 7,24, bei 200% zu 10,86 und bei ja immernoch möglichen 500% zu 21,72$. Ein 1000%-anstieg würde übrigens zu 39,82$ führen. Rechenfehlerbemerkungen willkommen...
Da die Nadaq oder auch allgemein die Technologiewerte angesichts der im Januar hineinströmenden Gewinnwarnungen und -verfehlungen höchstwahrscheinlich wiedermal mehr als schlecht abschneiden werden und wir in der letzten Zeit wenigstens die Abhängigkeit von ICGe zu dem Markt erkannt haben, sollte jedem der Oberhalb der 20$- Marke eingestiegen ist, klar werden, dass es an der Zeit ist, Adieu zu sagen.
Dies betrifft zumindest mein ICGe-Engagement.
Denn unglücklicherweise stellte ICGe einst meine größte Postion da. Einst.
Ein freundschaftlicher Rat an alle anderen Börsianer, die erst seit kurzem an der Börse "tätig" sind: Fahrt mit Euren Depotleichen satte Steuerverluste ein. Diese kann man auf die Folgejahre sich anrechenen lassen. Sicherlich kann man mit dem Restgeld nicht die halbe Welt kaufen, aber das wollen wir ja auch nicht. Bei diesen Kursen sollte man sich meines Erachtens für ein vor allem profitables Unternehmen ( sicherlich im Technologie/Internet-sektor ) entscheiden. Dieser Ratschlag soll keineswegs eine Kursmanipulation darstellen. Wer dies annehme sollte tatsächlich noch mehr zu lernen haben als ich. ;)
Ich denke tatsächlich, dass ICGe einen sehr steinigen Weg vor sich hat. Nach Aussagen unseres CEOs ( obwohl: wer glubt denn noch an die? ) sieht der IPO-Markt im Jahre 2001 ebenfalls grauenhaft aus. VerticalNet läßt ebenfalls als zur Zeit wichtigste börsennotierte Beteiligung zu wünschen übrig. Wird sich wahrscheinlich gegen Ariba, Commerce One und Co. nicht durchsetzen.
Interesannt wäre unter Umständen ein Investment in ICG Commerce oder eine andere Beteiligung. Vielleicht kommt ja eine im Jahre 2002 an die Börse... ;)
Sonst kann ich mir ein sehr kurzfristiges Investment auch bei ICGe vorstellen. Genügend Spielraum durch das Einfahren der Steuerverluste ist ja vorhanden.
Vielleicht entfache ich hiermit eine kleine Diskussionsrunde. Zu wünschen wäre es, nachdem sich sehr viele mit ihren Postings zurückhalten. ( ich weiß: es ist die Scham, den anderen einzugestehen, dass man immmernoch drinne ist...)
In diesem Sinne, ( falls sich vor Sylvester keiner melden sollte ), ein fröhliches und vor allem glücklicheres Neues Jahr uns allen!

ICG, Sanyo Elec bet on Japan Net
Plus: Wireless beer down under

By Gail Nakada, CBS.MarketWatch.com
Last Update: 3:15 AM ET Jan 26, 2001

Newswatch
Latest Headlines
Get Alerted


Japan`s Sanyo Electric (SANYF: news, msgs) and U.S. investment
firm Internet Capital Group (ICGE: news, msgs) are setting up an
incubator to invest and grow Net-focused start-ups (yes, they are
still starting up here in Japan).

Sanyo will take a 40 percent share in the company, which will be
capitalized at 90 million yen ($770,877). Internet Capital Group`s
ICG Japan will hold a controlling 60 percent stake in the as-yet
unnamed company.

ICG Japan spokesman Takashi Sensui told CBS
MarketWatch.com that the JV plans on taking some key
technologies from Sanyo out into the market as well as investing in
primarily B2B ventures. "We will be concentrating initially on the
Osaka region. That area is growing with new technology ventures,"
said Sansui.

Sanyo is headquartered in Japan`s second-largest city, which is
anxious to let the world know not all of Japan`s IT expertise resides
in Tokyo. The greater Osaka-area, called "Kansai," is also home to
MagMag, Japan`s leading publisher of permission email e-zines
and the Kyoto Research Park, a hive of venture activity.

Japanese VCs do not have as solid a reputation in finding and
nurturing new economy start-ups as their American counterparts.
Sanyo, a real virgin in the VC game, will have to depend heavily on
Internet Capital Group`s experience in identifying business-to
business and e-commerce ventures. Let`s hope it`s not a case of the
blind leading the blind. IGC`s stock has crawled down, down into
the depths after its initial vertigo-inducing Nasdaq nosedive (along
with many others) last spring. Right now ICG owns interest in
around 49 B2B companies. One of their pet projects, e-Chemicals,
despite excellent technology, ran up against tougher than expected
competition in chemical marketplaces and has been acquired by
Aspen Technologies. However another ICG investment,
CyberCrop.com, seems to be doing well with its freight matching
service, LoadScout, (http://www.loadscout.com/); a commercial
grain trading function and a comprehensive agricultural markets,
weather and news portal.

Sanyo is doing very well on revenues from its rechargeable mobile
phone batteries, sales of mobile phone units and digital cameras.
Despite a worldwide slowdown, the company is still clearing
profits from its semiconductor division. Like other electronic
manufacturers, Sanyo has deep vested interests in seeing online and
wireless ventures continue to grow even if it has to find the funding
for them itself.

Lower fees for South Korea`s Wireless Net

Lower fees for wireless Internet service may be in line for South
Korea`s mobile phone users as soon as March.

Pricing changes will center on removing time-based charges,
opting instead for a packet-based system, similar to what DoCoMo
has done through I-mode in Japan. Five of South Korea`s leading
telecom carriers - SK Telecom (SKMRT: news, msgs) , LG
Telecom, Shinsegi Telecom, Korea Telecom (KTC: news, msgs)
Freetel and Korea Telecom M.com -- along with the Ministry of
Information and Communication have agreed on specifics for sizing
data packets. The Korea Times reports one data packet will equal
512 bytes containing around 200-250 letters. I-mode divides one
packet into 128 bytes. Wireless net penetration via mobile phones
has reached over 55 percent of all cell phone ownership in South
Korea, according to the ministry.

Wireless beer down under

Why are we not surprised that Australia`s first wireless interactive,
permission-based marketing promotion using Short Messaging
Service (SMS) is for beer?

Singapore-based EdgeMatrix, which provides technology products
that allow carriers and companies to shoot content across multiple
digital communications channels, is powering the promotion for
Heineken debuting at the Australian Open. Promotion registrants
receive a daily SMS through Edge Matrix`s "Mobile Loyalty"
solution asking them to pick the winner of the Australian Open
Tennis match of the day. Five correct entries entitle registrants to
enter a draw to win - what else -- free Heineken beer for a year.
Too bad they couldn`t get a BBQ maker and supermarket chain to
go in on the promotion with them, then winners could drink their
beer and throw some steaks on the barby.

Hallo guuruh,

oder so ich dich lieber Japaner nennen. Bis du eigentlich Japaner?! Aber ist ja igal. Am 8 Feb. 2001 kommen die Zahlen. Und die Aussichten sind schlecht bzw. beschießen!
ICGE wird mehr Verlust machen aufgrund von schlechten Umfeld. Können ja keine Beteidigungen verkaufen. Zweitens die Wirtschaft läuft langsamer bzw. schlecht. Also Unternehmen sparen an Technologie! Und ein Unternehem kann auf B2B jetzt verzichten. Viele Unternehmen sagen zwar das sie B2B brauchen, doch ob in einem Jahr oder in zwei Jahren. Das ist ihnen Igal. Deshalb glaube ich das ICGE langsam Pleite geht! Bin zwar in diesem Wert investiert aber bie 98% Minus ist mir alles Igal. Deshalb glaube ich allgemein das alle ich sage alle B2B Werte schlecht dastehen werden. Auch wenn Arbia, I2 u.s.w. gute bzw. ihre Ziele erreichen haben glaube ich das das auch im 2 Quartal so ist. Der noch nicht so stark im Minus ist sollte sich schnellsten aus dem Wert verabschieden. Dies ist aber jedem seine eigene Entscheidung. Ich würde verkaufen, blos da bleibt mir ja nicht mehr viel! Hoffe du und ihr denkt anderst aber ich jetzt nicht. Ich bin zulange von dieser und anderen Aktien names "B2B,B2C u.s.w verarscht worden! Ich halte nicht mehr viel von Yahoo,At Home oder von CMGI! Bis bald benny
Hallo Bulle,

nö, ich bin kein japaner, komme aber trotzdem aus dem ausland.
habe nichts dagegen, dass du mich japaner nennst :laugh: .

Mit Yahoo habe ich mich nicht beschaeftigt. ueber CMGI wind gemunkelt,
seine beteiligungen seien besser als die von ICGE, was von der
boerse LEICHT mehr honoriert wird. das behauptet auch
ein informant von mir, der bei einer der nicht notierten CMGI-firmen
arbeitet. ich betonne hier, dass ich von ihm ueber kein insiderwissen
verfuege und CMGI (historisch bedingt) nicht besitze.
dieser einzige kerl mit 200 t$ gehalt hat durch einen aufbau einer
b2b plattform die betr. umsaetze in einem jahr
auf ca 10 M$ verhundertfacht. dies soll nur eine
(aus erster hand) vorstellung des potentials darstellen.
den zeitungsberichten glaubt man wohl nicht mehr.

deine 98% tun mir leid. habe selbst einiges mit ICGE verloren.
den verlust habe ich im herbst begrenzt und bin jetzt erneut eingestiegen.
NB. ein mal hier aufgetauchter pushverdacht (weiss nicht, ob an meine adresse)
ist natuerlich haltlos, da unsere zielgruppe nur einen
tropfen wasser in der riesigen umsatzmuehle in USA bedeutet.

die im fruehjahr in aussicht gestellten kurse von 250 $ sehen
wir wohl nie. ich waere mit einer boersenbewertung von 5 G$
(natuerlich) voellig zufrieden, auch wenn ein TEIL
der beteiligungen sicherlich schrott ist. trotzdem
(was ich vorhin mal geschrieben habe) sind potenziellen perlen wie
logistics.com nicht zu vergessen.

vom asiatischen raum verspreche ich mir einiges, es ist meine
persoenliche meinung und habe auf einige heruntergepruegelte portale
ebenfalls gesetzt.

for today cheers, guuruh
Mein Tipp: Montag aussteigen aus ICG und rein in "group technologie", die machen - ähnlich wie entrust und baltimore - sicherheitssoftware für B2b. Aktie steht am Montag bei ca. 6.50 und hat mit Blick auf die in der nächsten Woche veröffentlichen Zahlen (Mainvestor meldete am Freitag Ausblick, der sehr positiv sein soll) großen Speilraum nach oben. Dann: Kursgewinne mitnehmen und wieder in die ICG zurück, die erst Anfang März durchstarten wird, wenn sich herausstellt, daß B2B Beteiligungen Geld abwerfen.
ICGE ist ein klarer Kauf, auch fundamental!!! Einige Beteiligungen von ICGE haben schon positiven Cash Flow!! Der CEO von ICGE hat vor ein paar Wochen auf CNBC mitgeteilt, daß ICGE keine neuen Beteiligungen mehr eingeht, sondern verstärkt auf die bestehenden Beteiligungen focusiert, damit die auch in die Gewinnzone kommen!! Wenn man den Chart anschaut, sowie den Money Flow, sieht man das seit ein paar Wochen keine großer Verkaufsdruck mehr vorliegt. Langsam aber sicher heißt es hier Positionen aufbauen.
Hallo Leute,

kann ich glauben das die Zahlen besser sind wie vom letzten Mal. Auch wenn der Chef von ICGE alles gut redet! Siehe doch At Home. Zuerst gute Zahlen bringen und dann die Aussichten so schlecht manchen das die Aktie nie wieder dort stehen wird wo sie eigentlich hin gehört! Deshalb rate ich jedem die Finger weg zu lassen! Die Aktie ist für mich ein Luftblase! Erst müssen die Zahlen gut sein und man darüber reden! Super Postin von guuruh! Danke noch! bis bald benny

Venture Capitalists Slowing Down
By Debra Lau

Crosspoint Venture Partners took an unprecedented step while raising capital for its latest VC fund late last year. It told investors it
changed its mind and didn`t need their money after all.

The Woodside, Calif.-based venture firm, which backs technology startups, already had $1 billion in commitments for the
Crosspoint 2001 Fund, but its partners wanted to spend more time on existing investments rather than seek out new companies to back.

Indeed, after getting burned by dot-coms, Crosspoint and other VC firms are slowing the pace of their first-round investments in companies, opting instead to
spend more time and capital on existing companies that show potential to generate revenue and profits.

``These guys [VCs] had a big breakfast and a phenomenally big dinner,`` says Jesse Reyes, a vice president at data firm Venture Economics, a division of
Thomson Financial. ``And now they`re pushing back from the table to digest what the heck they`ve eaten and figuring out whether it`s going to give them
indigestion or not.``

Only 501 companies received a total of $5.1 billion in first-round funding during the last quarter of 2000, compared with 758 companies that got $8.5 billion
during the same period in 1999, according to the National Venture Capital Association and Venture Economics (NVCA and VE). In contrast, VCs allocated a
bigger share of their capital to follow-on investments. A total of 899 companies collected $14.7 billion in the last quarter of 2000, compared with 865
companies that obtained $16.9 billion during the same period the year before.

Enterprise Partners, an early-stage investor, is another one of many venture firms turning its attention to existing portfolio companies. The La Jolla,
Calif.-based firm, which backs technology, telecom and biotech companies, used to carve out 30% of its venture funds for follow-on investments, but it has
increased that amount to 45% to 50%, says Drew Senyei, a managing general partner. The reason? Its companies need more capital to survive, as the time it takes
to prove their business models and reach an IPO has increased significantly since the market downturn in April 2000.

As expected, the tumultuous public markets, high valuations and a cooling in IPOs has led to an overall slowdown in venture investments in the fourth quarter of
2000. VCs spent $19.6 billion that quarter, compared with $28.3 billion the previous quarter, according to numbers released by NVCA and VE.

The industry raised about $100 billion last year, compared to about $60 billion in 1999. VCs still have about $35 billion, committed by investors, in reserve.

Overall, northern California attracted the most capital, getting 32.5% of all VC dollars in 2000. The greater New York area came in second, followed by New
England. Surprisingly, however, only 80 new companies were funded in Silicon Valley in the fourth quarter of last year, compared with about twice that number
the previous quarter, says Reyes. Average first-time rounds have also declined to about $11 million from $15 million a few months ago.

``The amount of new financings is putting a bit of a chill in the air for entrepreneurs,`` says Reyes.

But even those companies with a round or two of financing under their belts shouldn`t assume follow-ons are so freely available. Bob Hoff, a general partner at
Crosspoint, met with 40 of his 66 portfolio companies to explain that the investing climate had become more competitive. During that process, the firm decided
against giving more capital to five of its portfolio companies, freeing up $170 million to spend from its Crosspoint 2000 Fund. The spurned companies did not
convince the firm that they could generate revenue or turn a profit in the near future, Hoff says.

Crosspoint, an early backer of Foundry Networks (Nasdaq: FDRY - news), Ariba (Nasdaq: ARBA - news), Juniper Networks (Nasdaq: JNPR - news) and
Brocade Communications (Nasdaq: BRCD - news), made only two new investments in technology startups in the last few months, compared with twice that
number in the third quarter of last year. The firm had about 15 IPOs in 1999 and was expecting 20 IPOs last year, but only had two.

``I don`t think they`ve totally turned off the spigot [for first-time investments],`` says Venture Economics` Reyes. ``But they`re being cautious, so most likely
there`ll probably be some good companies that don`t get funded.``

The second coming of Divine Interventures
By Lawrence Aragon, Julie Landry
Red Herring, February 20, 2001


Twist Andrew "Flip" Filipowski`s arm all you want. He still won`t
cry uncle.

Mr. Filipowski, CEO and chairman of troubled Divine
Interventures (Nasdaq: DVIN), has been written off by Wall Street.
But, ever the salesman, he made a case this past week for why his
Internet holding company will not only survive but prosper. He says
he expects Divine to start posting an operating profit by mid-2002.

Mr. Filipowski has made a lot of missteps, for which some will
never forgive him, but for the first time since he started hyping
Divine, he actually has a game plan that makes sense. Given his track record, the odds that he can pull off the plan
are slim; however, it would be a mistake to say that Divine has failed -- yet.

"Relative to where Divine was positioned before, I`m optimistic about their new direction," says the skeptical
Dave Wright, a vice president and incubator expert at market researcher The Aberdeen Group. "But their recent
executive track record casts a shadow on their ability to execute." Mr. Wright gives Divine "a little less than 50
percent" odds of succeeding, but it should be noted that his previous odds were a big fat zero.

The central piece of Divine`s comeback strategy is its planned purchase of enterprise software company
SageMaker for $16.5 million. The plan is to merge SageMaker and Divine, creating an enterprise software
holding company called Divine Incorporated. Divine Interventures will be a separate but wholly owned
subsidiary that will continue to support its portfolio companies. It will make few if any new investments, Mr.
Filipowski says.

The big difference between what Divine will do now versus what it did previously is its focus on so-called
infrastructure software -- software that underlies or enables online business. The other key difference, the
company says, is that each of its portfolio companies is unlikely to be publicly traded on its own. Divine`s
portfolio currently includes about 20 software companies. "They`re a collection of wholly owned subsidiaries,
with one common face to the customer," Mr. Filipowski says.

INCUBATORS AREN`T DEAD
Mr. Filipowski denies that Divine has abandoned its fundamental business model as an "Internet Zaibatsu" or that
the premise for Internet holding companies has failed.

"I`m sure that many will interpret it that way," he says. "But we`re still a holding company, and we`re still
following the same theme. People can interpret [the change] as capitulation, but as long as they try to appreciate
what we`re trying to do as a software company it becomes irrelevant."

For Divine to have failed in its original mission, it would have had to "write off everything we did and start from
scratch," he says. "Then that would be a capitulation."

Divine has no plans to sell or close any of its 20-plus portfolio companies. However, it will stop funding
companies in sectors that lay outside its core business, such as Internet marketplaces National Transportation
Exchange, Farms.com, Neoforma.com, and FuelQuest. "If they ask [for more funding], we`d definitely say no,"
Mr. Filipowski says. (He believes the companies will be successful without more money from Divine.)

The company also has no plans to sell other assets, like intellectual property, although it has listed Goose Island
(the Chicago locale where it planned to build its sprawling headquarters). It paid about $8 million for the land.

Divine itself isn`t for sale either, Mr. Filipowski says. "It`s not being shopped or marketed, and we haven`t hired
investment bankers," he says. "But at $40 a share, I don`t know how fast I could say `yes.`" Divine`s stock price
closed at $1.81 on Friday.

How Divine fell to such depths can be largely explained by external market forces, Mr. Filipowski says.

The company got into the "econet" game much later than its troubled brethren CMGI (Nasdaq: CMGI) and
Internet Capital Group (Nasdaq: ICGE). After delaying its IPO several times and booting its conservative lead
underwriter, Divine went public after the IPO bubble had burst, raising about $150 million less than it had
planned. Its stock never traded above $13.

The implosion of Divine is a rare failure for Mr. Filipowski, who struck it rich with the founding and eventual
sale of Platinum Technology International to Computer Associates (NYSE: CA). That big-bang software success
is exactly why some observers -- including Flip himself -- paint Divine`s latest turn as a smart move, a return to
the territory he knows best.

The story`s a little more complex than Mr. Filipowski spins it, though. The company has been through a lot in just
two years. It raised more than $600 million in venture capital, went public, laid off 4 percent of his core staff (29
employees, mostly in partner development), and finally announced its focus on software.

WE`VE GOT A PLAN
Through every plot twist, Mr. Filipowski has insisted that his latest move was what he`d planned all along.

He first laid out his grand plan to us in August 1999. The goal, he said then, was to build a network of companies
that would provide funding, marketing, Web design services, recruiting, and even office space to Net startups and
spin-offs from brick-and-mortar companies in the Midwest. The emphasis on brick-and-mortar spin-offs was
based on his theory that such companies "are incapable of maximizing value or successfully creating an Internet
business." To date, Divine Interventures has not done a single bricks-to-clicks deal.

Six months later, he posed for the cover of Red Herring magazine, looking like a devilish puppeteer, as four
CEOs dangled from strings he clutched in his hands. He was the poster boy for what Red Herring dubbed econets.
"We want to create a structure where $1 invested in one of our companies travels around and makes 50 stops with
the network before leaving our doors," said Mr. Filipowski of his planned empire. "It`s entirely possible the few
winners who get this right could be among the top 25 of the Fortune 500."

Three months later, Mr. Filipowski was feverishly trying to take his company public. Investors like Microsoft
(Nasdaq: MSFT) and Level 3 Communications (Nasdaq: LVLT) were breathing down his neck, since their $220
million-plus funding was contingent on an IPO by the end of July. Divine`s IPO prospectus admitted a focus on
Internet companies and summed up its troubles: "Our management has not previously actively managed, operated,
or promoted Internet companies, and if they cannot do so effectively, our business strategy will fail," said a filing
with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Divine shares finally stumbled onto the public market on July 12, but raised only $128 million of a planned $300
million. Its stock hit an all-time low of $1 on January 8.

In November of 2000, Divine swore off its initial plan of incubation and planned to acquire and roll up
undervalued companies. "This is the phase where what you do as a holding company is accumulate the babies that
are being thrown out with the bathwater, where the public has departed from the liquidity equation," Mr.
Filipowski told us at the time. Of Divine`s 43 board members, 8 left during the third quarter of 2000, at least one
of them over fundamental flaws in the business model. Since the first of the year, at least 17 inside shareholders
have sold their shares at less than $2 per share, according to First Call/Thomson Financial, effectively washing
their hands of involvement with the company`s poor stock.

Despite all the problems he`s been through, however, Mr. Filipowski says he has no regrets. "Do I regret the price
of the stock? Yes. Do I feel bad and responsible? Of course I do. Do I intend to work my ass off? Yes.... There`s a
certain amount of pride involved in it, or even ego. I hate to lose."

Press Release

Internet Capital Group Announces Fourth Quarter Results

Exceeds liquidity expectations and reduces cash burn to strengthen financial flexibility; Reports continued
progress at key partner companies

WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 21, 2001-- Internet Capital Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:ICGE - news) today reported its results for the fourth quarter
and fiscal year ended December 31, 2000.

``We are pleased to report that ICG made substantial progress against the milestones we outlined last quarter,`` said Walter Buckley, president and CEO of ICG.
``As a result of our heightened focus, we delivered on our commitments to reduce cash burn, streamline the network and increase our financial flexibility.``

``As the B2B market evolves, ICG remains steadfast in its goal to build leading B2B e-commerce companies by focusing its human and financial resources on
partner companies that we believe will bring the greatest near term value,`` Buckley said. ``We continue to be encouraged by the progress of our developed
companies, as evidenced by their calendar year 2000 aggregate pro forma revenues of $161 million, which represents year over year growth of more than
250%.``

Focus on discipline and execution

``Continuing on the path outlined last quarter, ICG has intensified its focus on the most promising companies in its network, while streamlining the balance of
the partner company network to free up resources and maximize value. We believe now more than ever that this focus will result in a smaller but stronger group
of companies that will fuel ICG`s growth and, in turn, generate increased shareholder value over the long term,`` said Buckley.

ICG will continue to support its most developed partner companies with an emphasis on those that are currently meeting, or in the case of several emerging
companies, are close to meeting, the developed criteria established in the third quarter.

During the quarter the Company made strong progress against its stated operating goals of focusing on key partner companies, reducing cash burn and
streamlining the network. Highlights and actions taken include:

Reducing ICG`s corporate SG&A expense rate by more than 50%, to an annualized run rate of approximately $35 million;
Moving Blackboard, an e-learning infrastructure company for the higher education market, into the developed category, after having met the stringent
criteria set out last quarter;
Acquiring early in the quarter, as previously announced, a $21.5 million stake in Agribuys and a $4.5 million stake in TexYard. Agribuys is a leading
full-service business-to-business e-commerce company that optimizes procurement across multiple segments of the $4 trillion food industry. TexYard is
a leading European online sourcing solution for the apparel industry that enables retailers to deliver shorter product cycle times and lower the cost of
goods sold, while increasing suppliers` factory utilization rates;
Selling ICG`s stake in Servicesoft to Broadbase Software for approximately 1.3 million shares of Broadbase common stock, valued at approximately $10
million at the close of the transaction;
Selling e-Chemicals to Aspen Technology, Inc.;
Combining two of ICG`s partner companies, FreeBorders and Animated Images (Ai), to create a standard Web-based technology platform for members
of the apparel and textile industry to facilitate trading, development and communication at all points in the supply chain. Following this acquisition of Ai
by Freeborders, ICG`s ownership in the combined company is 38%; and
Removing NationStreet from the ICG network after it ceased operations in December.

Subsequent to December 31, 2000, the Company continued to execute against its stated operating plan, taking actions that include:

Partnering with world reinsurance market leaders Munich Re and Swiss Re and Accenture (formerly Andersen Consulting) to form inreon, an
independent reinsurance exchange. ICG`s contribution to this joint venture was $12.5 million; and
Selling or entering into agreements in principle to sell ICG`s stakes in Blackbird, Deja, VerticalNet Europe, EmployeeLife and SageMaker for proceeds
totaling in excess of $25 million.

Partner Company Highlights

One of the measures of ICG`s progress is the revenue growth of its partner companies. On a pro-forma unaudited basis, the aggregate reported revenues of
ICG`s developed partner companies grew approximately 211% to $56 million in the fourth quarter of 2000, up from $18 million in the fourth quarter of 1999.

On a proforma unaudited basis, the aggregate reported revenues for all of ICG`s partner companies grew approximately 391% to $599 million in the fourth
quarter of 2000, up from $122 million in the fourth quarter of 1999. Excluding revenues from reselling, proforma unaudited aggregate reported revenues of all
of ICG`s partner companies grew 167% to $218 million, up from $81 million in the fourth quarter of 1999.

For the fiscal year, on a pro-forma unaudited basis, the aggregate reported revenues of all of ICG`s partner companies grew approximately 480% to $1.7 billion
in 2000, up from $290 million in 1999. Excluding revenues from reselling, proforma unaudited aggregate reported revenues of all of ICG`s partner companies
grew 226% to $713 million in 2000, up from $218 million in 1999.

During the quarter, four of ICG`s developed partner companies - Jamcracker, United Messaging, NetVendor, and AssetTRADE - closed follow-on fundings of
approximately $200 million in the aggregate, primarily led by third parties.

Financial Strength and Flexibility

``We continue to manage our business with a high level of financial discipline and rigor. We will continue to deliver on our commitments to streamline our
operations and focus our resources on our leading partner companies,`` said Ed West, Chief Financial Officer of Internet Capital Group. ``With more than $330
million in liquid resources at quarter end, access to alternative financing sources, and the ongoing ability to monetize non-strategic assets, we have substantial
flexibility going forward.``

Cash used in operations at the parent company, including a semi-annual interest payment of $16 million, totaled $36 million for the fourth quarter, which was
better than expectations set by the Company last quarter. Cash deployed for partner company acquisitions and follow-on activity totaled $120 million for the
quarter, which was below ICG`s stated guidance.

Early in the fourth quarter, the Company spent a total of $26 million in cash for new acquisitions, namely TexYard and Agribuys. The Company deployed an
additional $94 million in cash for follow-on activity, approximately half for developed companies and the balance for emerging companies. Cash, short term
investments and available for sale securities totaled $332 million at December 31, 2000 on an ICG corporate basis.

Financial Results

For the quarter ended December 31, 2000, ICG reported a pro forma net loss of $200 million or $0.70 per share. This excludes one-time asset impairment
charges, goodwill amortization, and other income. This compares to a pro forma net loss of $30 million or $0.12 per share for the prior year period.

For the full year ended December 31, 2000, ICG reported a pro forma net loss of $484 million or $1.76 per share. This excludes one-time asset impairment
charges, goodwill amortization, and other income. This compares to a pro forma net loss of $66 million or $0.33 per share for the prior year period. As the
result of the Company`s periodic review of the value of our partner companies, we adjusted the carrying value of certain assets, primarily goodwill and other
intangibles, by approximately $302 million to their estimated recoverable amounts.

On a GAAP basis, the net loss for the quarter was $561 million or $1.97 per share compared with a net loss of $23 million or $0.09 per share in the
corresponding period in 1999. For the full year on a GAAP basis, the net loss was $660 million or $2.40 per share compared with a net loss of $30 million or
$0.15 per share in the corresponding period in 1999.

Outlook

Looking ahead to 2001, ICG will continue to allocate its resources to key partner companies while maintaining strict financial discipline. Based on these
priorities, along with the ongoing monetization of non-strategic assets and other financing sources, ICG expects to finish fiscal 2001 with a cash, short term
investments and available for sale securities balance in excess of $200 million.

The Company anticipates deploying approximately $125 - $150 million to fund its key partner companies. At the end of the second quarter, ICG expects its
SG&A expenses will be at an annual run-rate of approximately $35 million. On a full-year basis, the Company expects to spend $40 million for the year to
support general ICG operations, which does not include one-time items of approximately $10 million. Additionally, the Company will incur $32 million of
interest expense associated with its convertible notes.

INTERNET CAPITAL GROUP

December 31, 2000 Supplemental Information

General ICG Operations Segment


The General ICG Operations segment represents the expenses of providing strategic and operational support to our partner companies, the administrative costs
related to these expenses and the effect of transactions and other events incidental to our ownership interests in our partner companies.

General and Administrative

General and administrative expenses consist of payroll and related expenses for executive, operational, acquisitions, finance and administrative personnel,
recruiting, professional fees and other general corporate expenses for Internet Capital Group.

Research and Development

Research and development expenses relate to the development of certain technologies for the benefit of our partner companies.

Stock-Based Compensation

Stock-based compensation primarily consists of non-cash charges related to certain compensation arrangements.

Amortization of Goodwill and intangible assets

Goodwill, the excess of cost over net assets of businesses acquired, and other intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over three years.

Impairment-Related and Other

We continually evaluate the carrying value of our partner companies based on quantitative and qualitative measures. If we conclude that the carrying value
should be adjusted and the estimated fair value of the asset is less than its recorded amount, an adjustment to the carrying value is recorded. The industry in
which we operate is rapidly evolving and extremely competitive. Valuations of public companies operating in the Internet B2B e-commerce sector have
declined significantly throughout 2000. In 1999 and 2000, we announced several significant acquisitions that were financed principally with shares of our stock
and, based on the price of our stock at that time were valued in excess of $1 billion.

During the quarter ended December 31, 2000, our review of the carrying value of our partner companies resulted in an adjustment to the carrying value of
certain partner companies in the amount of approximately $302 million. Adjustments of $46.4 million to carrying values were also recorded in previous
quarters. These adjustments are presented in `impairment and other`, `other income, net` and `equity loss` in the accompanying statement of operations
depending on the method of accounting for the affected partner company. It is possible that our accounting estimates with respect to the useful life and ultimate
recoverability of our carrying basis including goodwill in other partner companies could change in the near term and that the effect of such changes on the
financial statements could be material.

Impairment-related and other for the year ended December 31, 2000, also includes a fourth-quarter charge of approximately $18.1 million related to previously
announced severance related costs, costs associated with facilities reduction and the loss on retirement of certain fixed assets.

Other Income (loss), net

Other income (loss), net primarily consists of net realized gains and losses on sales of marketable securities and other minority interest investments, impairment
charges relating to cost method companies and gains or losses on the issuances of stock by our partner companies to reflect the change in our share of the net
equity of these companies.

Other income (loss), net for the quarter ended December 31, 2000, primarily consists of a loss of approximately $26.8 million related to the sales of marketable
securities, principally shares of Ariba and a $31.5 million loss related to the previously detailed adjustment to carrying values (cost method companies). Other
income (loss), net for the year ended December 31, 2000, also consists primarily of gains of approximately $251.1 million related to the issuance of stock by
certain equity method companies and a gain of approximately $449.3 million related to the sale of Tradex to Ariba, Inc

Partner Company Operations Segment


The Partner Company Operations segment includes the effect of consolidating our majority-owned partner companies from the dates of their acquisitions and
recording our share of the earnings and losses of partner companies accounted for under the equity method of accounting. Because many of these companies are
in the early stage of their development, they have been and are expected to continue to generate losses. The performance of these partner companies, coupled
with the occasional and unplanned nature of the gains and losses related to our ownership in them, will most likely continue to result in wide fluctuations of our
quarterly results.

Effect of Various Accounting Methods on our Results of Operations

The various interests that we acquire in our partner companies are accounted for under three broad methods: consolidation, equity method and cost method. The
effect of a partner company`s net results of operations on our net results of operations is generally the same under either the consolidation method of accounting
or the equity method of accounting, because under each of these methods only our share of the earnings or losses of a partner company is reflected in our net
results of operations in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The applicable accounting method is generally determined based on our voting interest in a
partner company.

Consolidation. Partner companies in which we directly or indirectly own more than 50% of the outstanding voting securities or those where we have effective
control are generally accounted for under the consolidation method of accounting. Under this method, a partner company`s accounts (revenue, cost of revenue,
general and administrative, research and development, stock based compensation, goodwill amortization and interest income/expense) are reflected within our
Consolidated Statements of Operations. Participation of other partner company stockholders in the earnings or losses of a consolidated partner company is
reflected in the caption ``Minority interest`` in our Consolidated Statements of Operations. Minority interest adjusts our consolidated net results of operations to
reflect only our share of the earnings or losses of the consolidated partner company. As of December 31, 2000, we accounted for 14 of our partner companies
under this method.

Equity Method. Partner companies whose results we do not consolidate, but over whom we exercise significant influence, are generally accounted for under the
equity method of accounting. Whether or not we exercise significant influence with respect to a partner company depends on an evaluation of several factors
including, among others, representation on the partner company`s board of directors and ownership level, which is generally a 20% to 50% interest in the voting
securities of the partner company, including voting rights associated with our holdings in common, preferred and other convertible instruments in the partner
company. Under the equity method of accounting, a partner company`s accounts are not reflected within our Consolidated Statements of Operations; however,
our share of the earnings or losses of the partner company is reflected in the caption ``Equity loss`` in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. As of
December 31, 2000, we accounted for 45 of our partner companies under this method.

Cost Method. Partner companies not accounted for under either the consolidation or the equity method of accounting are accounted for under the cost method of
accounting. Under this method, our share of the earnings or losses of these companies is not included in our Consolidated Statements of Operations. As of
December 31, 2000, we accounted for 20 of our partner companies under this method.
Market woes take toll on Internet Capital
Group
February 22, 2001 11:05 AM ET
by Adam Feuerstein

Internet Capital Group (ICGE), the
business-to-business holding
company, reported a fourth-quarter
loss that grew dramatically as a result
of charges taken to reduce the value of
its portfolio companies.

Wednesday after the bell ICG reported
a fourth-quarter net loss of $561
million, or $1.97 per share, compared
with a net loss of $263.9 million, or 94
cents per share, in the third quarter.

ICG closed Wednesday at $3.44, down 19 cents, or 5 percent.
The stock has traded as high as $156 in the past year. In late
morning trading today, ICG was trading down about 3.6
percent, to $3.31.

Shrinking portfolio

The huge loss was attributable mainly to ICG`s decision to
reduce the value of its portfolio by $302 million in the fourth
quarter. The plunging stock market, exacerbated by the even
weaker performance of b-to-b companies, has sharply
reduced company valuations across the board.

ICG, in particular, pegged billion-dollar market valuations on
several of its partner companies. Today, those valuations,
while not exactly known, are certainly worth far less.

ICG executives are spinning a different set of numbers that
they say better reflect its operating performance, and the
operating performance of its partner companies. On a pro
forma basis, which excludes the investment write-offs, ICG
lost $200 million, or 70 cents per share, in the fourth quarter.
This is the first time ICG has released these figures, so there
are no historical comparisons available.

Despite the large quarterly loss, ICG executives say the
company has met and exceeded many of its financial goals,
which included cutting corporate spending and focusing
energies on improving the financial performance of its
most-promising partner companies.

ICG spent $36 million on operating expenses during the
quarter, $10 million less than the company expected. ICG also
invested another $120 million to acquire new companies and
to provide additional financing in its partner companies. Again,
the figure was less than expected.

The company ended 2000 with $332 million in cash,
short-term investments and securities available for sale. That
figure is down from $514 million at the end of the third quarter.

Solid in 2001

Looking forward, ICG says it expects to end 2001 with more
than $200 million in its corporate coffers.

"We are in a solid financial position," said Ed West, ICG`s
chief financial officer.

After the third quarter, ICG announced plans to focus much of
its energies on 15 "developed" companies in its portfolio that
have the best shot of providing ICG and its shareholders with
near-term value. Today, ICG executives said those
companies continue to perform well and are on target to
become cash-flow positive within 18 months.

In addition, ICG added another company, Blackboard, an
e-learning infrastructure company, to its "developed" list.

These 16 companies posted combined revenue of $56 million
in the fourth quarter, a 21 percent increase from the third
quarter, but less than the 33 percent growth racked up in the
second quarter.

ICG CEO Walter Buckley admits that some of his companies
were impacted by the slowing economy, but he expects
performances to improve.

"We`re never satisfied with 21 percent growth, but it`s
consistent with what you`re seeing with other companies in
the market," he says. "We always want to see more growth
and I think we can get it."

Trying for a home run

ICG better get that growth soon, because the sour markets
are not helping ICG`s cause. As a quasi-incubator, ICG and
its shareholders make money when the portfolio companies
go public or are sold off. But the IPO market is all but
shutdown, especially to b-to-b companies, and merger and
acquisition activity is anemic at best.

ICG has been able to sell off several of its portfolio companies
at respectable returns, but many of these companies are
worth far less today than they were just one year ago.

"It will only take one or two home runs for ICG to make a
move, but I don`t see any yet," says Jon Ekoniak, an analyst
with U.S. Bancorp Piper Jaffray.

How did it do?

Not so hot. On Nov. 8, ICG had $420 million in
liquid resources. As of Dec. 31, ICG had $332
million in cash. The company estimates it will
exit 2001 with $200 million in cash.

ICG may pat itself on the back for cutting its
cash burn rate, but the company`s prospects
are still dicey. ICG has some strong companies
in its portfolio, but it can`t cash in until a few
firms in its stable goes public.

Until then, ICG finds itself in a tough spot. It
may have to sell some stakes in its portfolio
companies, but sure isn`t going to get a
premium.

Officials touted ICG`s "access to alternative
financing sources, and the ongoing ability to
monetize non-strategic assets`` as reasons to
be upbeat, but the cheer rings hollow.

Officials said they were pleased ICG delivered
on its promises to streamline its network and
cut its cash burn rate. But ICG`s inability to
raise cash is still going to be a problem if the
stock market doesn`t rebound. The company
also has a big debt load.

ICG puts RightWorks on sale block: Is i2
the buyer?
February 26, 2001 03:10 PM ET
by Adam Feuerstein

Business-to-business incubator
Internet Capital Group (ICGE) is
looking to sell RightWorks, and the
leading suitor might be i2
Technologies (ITWO), according to
rumors sweeping across Wall Street
over the past week.

Executives with i2 and ICG refuse to
comment on the takeover talk, but i2 is
up 12 percent today, to $33.25, in part
because of the rumor. Shares were
trading as high as 14 percent earlier in
the day. ICG is up 13 percent, to $3.97.

RightWorks CEO Mary Coleman also refused to comment,
stating that the i2 takeover rumor is old news, and that her
company`s performance is strong enough to stand on its own.

Rumors abound

RightWorks is a privately held Internet procurement software
maker in the Ariba (ARBA) mold, but with far fewer customers
and revenue. ICG, which owns 56 percent of the company,
has been seeking a buyer for RightWorks for months,
according to several sources that contradict Coleman`s
assertions.

An exact price is not known, but observers say RightWorks
might fetch between $200 million and $500 million. That`s far
less than the $1 billion-plus valuation placed on RightWorks
when ICG made its investment a little less than one year ago.
But ICG invested in RightWorks before the Nasdaq crash and
the subsequent collapse of b-to-b stocks.

Those factors, plus RightWorks` difficulty in turning solid
technology into a revenue-generating customer base --
especially in the face of stiff competition from the likes of Ariba
and Commerce One (CMRC) -- forced ICG to put
RightWorks on the sale block instead of moving forward with
an initial public offering, sources say.

"RightWorks` execution could be characterized as
disappointing to this point," says Bob Parker, a b-to-b analyst
with AMR Research, who has heard the sale rumors. "The
company has a very good product. They have the ICG
investment and an experienced management team, but the
company has not gotten the traction in the market that they
would have hoped for."

That`s why a sale of RightWorks to a stronger software
company makes sense, says Pat Walravens, an analyst with
Lehman Brothers.

"RightWorks needs to be part of a broader [b-to-b software]
solution," he says, acknowledging that he has no special
insight into whether ICG is cooking up a deal or not. "In the
heyday of b-to-b, it was OK to sell a point solution, but today,
companies are looking for a broader software footprint, and
that`s something RightWorks can`t deliver."

I2`s popularity

So, is a deal imminent between i2 Technologies and
RightWorks? So far, market chatter is more prevalent than
actual details, but a deal could make sense, according to
several b-to-b observers.

I2, of course, has become the belle of the b-to-b ball because
it`s singing a song that would seem to cure many of the blues
befalling large manufacturers these days. Its supply chain and
e-business software allows companies to accurately forecast
changes in demand or market conditions, then relay those
changes to suppliers and customers.

The ability to help companies reduce costs and boost their
efficiency by communicating with business partners over the
Net is the sweet spot in the b-to-b software market.

Adding Internet procurement and marketplace software from
RightWorks would only enhance i2`s position, giving it virtually
all of the b-to-b software tools a customer could ever need,
says Parker.

And for soap opera fans out there, i2 could be eyeing
RightWorks as a way to deliver a crippling blow to its "partner"
Ariba. The two companies have been slinging arrows at each
other for months, despite their participation in a b-to-b
marketplace "Alliance" with IBM (IBM).

But both companies, in recent weeks, have acknowledged that
they now compete with each other, so i2 could use
RightWorks to, once and for all, move solidly onto Ariba`s turf.
Ariba acquired Agile Software last month do the same to i2,
but the company`s stock has been hammered on fears that it
has not made a strong enough move into the supply chain
arena dominated by i2.

Stealing Ariba`s thunder

One of the more conspiratorial rumors floating out there is
that vindictive i2 will announce its purchase of RightWorks
later today or Tuesday, just in front of a big Ariba media event
planned for Wednesday in New York City. While companies
can`t generally time acquisition announcements to wound their
enemies, the rumor illustrates just how much these two
companies despise each other.

And if these weren`t enough reasons for a deal, consider the
fact that i2 and RightWorks once worked very closely
together. In fact, i2 President Greg Brady once sat on
RightWorks` board of directors.

"From a procurment perspective, [a purchase of RightWorks]
fills out nicely i2`s suite of b-to-b software," says Tim Klein,
analyst with U.S. Bancorp Piper Jaffray. "It also puts them into
direct competition with Ariba."

There are, of course, reasons why such a deal between i2
and RightWorks doesn`t make sense. For starters, the two
companies already overlap to some extent. I2 executives
have also been fairly vocal in recent weeks about
downplaying the value of indirect procurement software sold
by companies like RightWorks. And the two companies may
not reach agreement on price.

There may also be other suitors vying for RightWorks`
attention. The company recently announced a strategic
alliance with Manugistics (MANU), a supply chain software
rival to i2, that could lead to a deeper relationship. And then
there`s PeopleSoft (PSFT), which has given strong
indications that it wants to get deeper into b-to-b and is
willing to consider acquisitions to do it.

If RightWorks is on the sale block, CEO Coleman is wearing
her poker face well. She insists that her large, more
established b-to-b rivals have not stopped the company from
winning deals. In fact, one brand-new customer win, the
French conglomerate Credit Lyonnais, came over direct
competition from Ariba, Commerce One and Oracle (ORCL).

And she says from a financial standpoint, RightWorks is doing
just fine. The company is putting the finishing touches on
another round of private financing that will give it enough cash
to last through the end of the year, she says, without providing
any details.

RightWorks` decreased valuation

"We are going to be a sizeable private company," she says,
adding that an IPO is possible for 2002.

But at the same time, Coleman acknowledges that the new
realities of the market decreased her company`s valuation,
and that some potential customers are spooked at the thought
of handing their business to a private software company with
a relatively unproven business model.

"Sure valuations are down, but that`s reflective of everyone.
Just look at what`s happened to Ariba," she says.

As for convincing corporate customers to choose RightWorks
over Ariba or its other rivals, Coleman says the sales cycle is
"always a challenge for private companies, but there are lots
of examples in the software business where private
companies have enjoyed tremendous success … The response
has been great from customers."

But even if RightWorks is making slow-and-steady progress,
its 70-odd customer roster and estimated $36 million in 2000
revenue are dwarfed by its competitors. Given the fact that
parent ICG is under pressure to provide some value to its
embattled shareholders, a sale of RightWorks seems to be a
forgone conclusion.

The only question remaining: Who`s the buyer?

http://www.upside.com/Ebiz/3a9ab7e61_yahoo.html
Hm, wieviel Prügel verdient man, wenn man ICGE zu 9,25$ gekauft hat, und es versäumt hat bei rund 20 zu verkaufen?
Aktuell ist die Frage, ob ICGE überhaupt überlebt.
Wenn ja, so Capital oder Finanzen- sei es eine 100% Chance. Aber: CMGI, ebenfalls ein Pleitekandidat sei die bessere Alternative(Autsch), da sie zumindest eine Namhafte Beteilligung ( engage) hätten...Man favorisiere insgesamt Softbank u.a. wg Cisco- Deal. Tja so viel dazu

viel Glück
Ich glaube ICGE geht nicht unter.Sie wird meiner Meinung nach noch die 1,5-2Euro sehen.Aber genauso wird sie auch wieder die 7Euro sehen.Schaut mal im Island.com wie die Aktie sofort abgeht wenn der Nasdaq steigt und auch sehr schnell fällt wenn der Nasdaq nach unten geht.Die Aktie ist sehr volatil.
Ich beobachte sie schon 1 Jahr und bin mir sicher wenn man bei 2-2,5E einsteigt mindestens 300% auf ein Jahr gesehen damit macht.Und das ist sehr sehr konservativ geschätzt.
Lehmann Brothers geben ein KZ von 7 Euro an.
Bei 420 Mio $ MK wird es immer laecherlicher.
Beachtet mal die $ 100 Mio in der ersten Meldung.
Es ist eine Groessenordnung fuer die potentiellen
Gewinne dieser Beteiligung.

Hier ein Paar Meldungen; Highlights von mir.
Immer wieder kommen positive Aeusserungen,
wie in beiden aelteren Meldungen.

customer service channels onto the Internet. NetVendor also launched an e-commerce site for Kulicke & Soffa, powered by NetVendor`s
sell-side e-commerce application, E.MBRACE(TM). They also applied their online order and computer-aided design (CAD) capabilities to

to industrial materials and machinery.

=> Syncra Systems, a collaborative commerce leader, announced that its Collaborative Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment capability
(CPFR®) will be used by Transora and Momentx. CPFR® enables suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers to share value chain
information real time via the Internet. This service paves the way for collaboration across the entire value chain. Syncra also announced an
agreement in which Ariba, Inc. will resell Syncra`s integrated product suite. The integration of Syncra`s supply-chain solutions with Ariba`s
Value Chain Management solution suite will enable Ariba customers to achieve end-to-end visibility among trading partners.



ICG`s network spans the three primary sectors of B2B e-commerce with:

Technology infrastructure companies that establish supply chain and commerce software platforms to allow for better, faster information
management and transaction processing between buyers and suppliers;
Horizontal service providers that automate and streamline non-core processes and enable the execution of online transactions with critical
services such as credit, logistics and procurement; and
Vertical solution providers that coordinate, organize and streamline information within specific industry supply chains.

The partner companies are further categorized by three stages of development -- public, developed, or emerging. The public category includes
ICG partner companies that are publicly traded. As this categorization relates to ICG`s private partner companies, the developed category
represents those believed to have the greatest near-term value potential for both shareholders and the network, based on a set of stringent criteria
including a proven, differentiated business model, a number 1 or 2 competitive market position and the expectation to become cash flow positive
within 18 months, among others. The emerging category includes companies that, as their businesses mature, may be able to meet the same
stringent criteria as those in the developed category.

Some Incubators Closer To Last Rites
By Lisa DiCarlo

When Forbes.com last surveyed the prospects of four Internet development companies (they don`t like to be called
incubators), we warned that they were on life support. As we predicted in January, things have taken a turn for the
worse at three of the four.

The latest news comes from CMGI (Nasdaq: CMGI - news), which yesterday reported a $2.5 billion loss that
includes a $2 billion writedown for its fiscal second quarter. The Andover, Mass.-based company failed to deliver
on every performance metric it outlined just two months ago. Its quarterly burn rate is about $75 million, $30
million more than where CMGI said it would be by year`s end. It will end its fiscal year with about $500 million in
cash, not the $600 million to $700 million it predicted in January.

And profitability is now nowhere in sight for any of CMGI`s five operating units. CMGI had said that four of the
five would be profitable.

One of its public, majority-owned companies, NaviSite (Nasdaq: NAVI - news), said today it hired Goldman Sachs
to pursue alternatives, including acquisition, and CMGI is looking for buyers for privately held Activate and
AdForce.

Another incubator, Idealab!, last week shut down its Silicon Valley office and said it would not start any new
businesses in that area, which is arguably the hottest of hotbeds for tech startups. The closure comes after Idealab!`s
decision to sublet its Boston office space. Its spacious but sparsely populated New York office may be the next to go.

The cost-cutting measures are certainly what Idealab!`s backers, who forked over $1 billion last March, want to hear,
but what`s missing is clean execution and proceeds generated by the next great idea. Just last week, Idealab! Chief
Executive Bill Gross announced New.net, a company that will sell Internet domains such as .family, .sports and .xxx
for $25 apiece.

The concept is interesting. Gross can bet that his billion-dollar backers will be watching like hawks to see if
New.net generates enough interest and sales to help make them whole.

It`s a complete strategy shift at Divine (Nasdaq: DVIN - news), formerly known as Divine InterVentures. In
mid-February, it bought a tiny software company, SageMaker, and is now trying to become a enterprise software
company. But Divine has no experience selling software to corporations, and the category it`s breaking into, called
enterprise information portals, is already crowded with much larger and more experienced players. If it`s smart,
Divine will let Computer Associates (NYSE: CA - news) market and sell the technologies brewing at its portfolio
companies. The pair has already announced that Computer Associates software will be integrated with SageMaker`s.
Could another sale to Computer Associates be in Andrew ``Flip`` Filipowski`s future?

Two weeks after Divine announced the strategy shift, it reported that for fiscal 2000, it lost $452 million on sales of
$44 million. The company`s shares are trading at $1.34

As Forbes.com predicted two months ago, Internet Capital Group (Nasdaq: ICGE - news) is making some headway.
Despite a $561 million fourth-quarter loss, which includes a $302 million writedown, there are signs the company is
moving in the right direction. It sold stakes in a few portfolio companies, including SageMaker, which was sold to
Divine for an undisclosed amount, and RightWorks, which was sold to I2 Technologies (Nasdaq: ITWO - news) for
$114 million. That`s a decent sign that ICG has the ability to pick winners in the B2B space.

ICG, which also managed to halve its annual burn rate, is invested in about 15 companies that it considers high potential. Still, ICG shares are
trading at $2.78, and it`s unclear when the company will turn a profit.
It appears to have a better shot than its three counterparts at long-term
success
.

So what`s the bottom line for investors in these Internet development companies? It looks like things will get even worse for CMGI before they
get better, with the company emerging as a shell of itself, maybe even without CEO David Wetherell. One should expect to see Divine spend its
cash buying companies to augment its portal strategy, but it just doesn`t have strong enough legs to compete independently in that space. ICG
appears to be the only company in the group delivering on at least some of its promises.

None of these companies is a flatline yet, but they`re flattening out at an alarming rate and in terms of executing a turnaround, most are moving in
the wrong direction.
Ich bleibe mal wieder beim Substanzwert von Logistics.
Zur Errinerung betraegt der Anteil von Logistics.com, Inc. 29% .
Die 100 Mio $ in der ersten Meldung
`Total savings for customers over the last 12 months exceed $100 million`
sehe ich als Mass der potentiellen Jahresgewinne dieser Beteiligung.

Wenn diese es schafft, 30 Prozent dieser Summe als Reingewinn
zu verzeichnen, ist sie 30% * 100 M$ * (KGV=40) = 1.2 Mld wert.
29% davon ist 350 Mio, was fast der Boersenkapitalisierung
der gesammten Gruppe entspricht.

In diesem Sinne
cheers, guuruh
Mein bisher superfaules Ei bereitet mir schlaflose Naechte,
und zwar nicht der Verluste wegen. Ich muss nochmals was
loswerden.

=> 1. vom Yahoo: Per-Share Data
Book Value (mrq) ..... $8.07
Earnings (ttm) ..... -$2.30
Earnings (mrq) ..... -$1.97
Sales (ttm) ..... $0.15
Cash (mrq) ..... $1.57

Die obige cash-Zahl entspricht 440 M$ , mit Vorsicht zu geniessen.

=> 2. nochmals aus einer frueheren Meldung (gepostet hier 22.02):

On Nov. 8, ICG had $420 million in
liquid resources. As of Dec. 31, ICG had $332
million in cash. The company estimates it will
exit 2001 with $200 million in cash.

=> 1. & 2. Irgendwo zwischen diesen 3 Zahlen
( $440 million $200 million $332 million )
duerfte der Cashbestand pendeln. Sogar die unguenstigste
Zahl ergibt ca 50 proc der MK. Mir sind zwar Firmen bekannt,
bei denen man fuer einen Dollar in Aktien zwei in Cash bekommt,
allerdings sind es kaum welche dabei, deren Boersengang
so lange her ist.

=> Lange Rede, kurzer Sinn: Sollte ICGE in den naechsten 2-3 Wochen
noch leicht fallen, greife ich nochmals zu. Wird sich diesmal
`Verbilligen` endlich auszahlen? :laugh:

cheers, guuruh
G. Bush will die US-Buerger und Wirtschaft in den naechsten
10 Jahren um 1600 Mld USD (kein Fehler: 1.6 * 10^12 USD) entlasten;
bereits 2002 soll es zu einer Entlastung um 29 Mld kommen.

Nur eine Dauerrezession ueber ein Paar Jahre waere
wachstumbremsend und der Schuss geht nach Hinten.
Tritt diese nicht ein, erhoeht sich BSP zusaetzlich
um 10 Proz am Ende der Zeitperiode von 10 Jahren.

Da Greenspan irgendwie die Boersen nicht mehr beeindruecken kann,
muss ein neuer Kick her. Vorsichtiger Clinton war gut,
Bush scheint trotz Starwars und China ebenso.

Hoffend auf die Durchsetzung,
cheers, guuruh

San Francisco Employees` Retirement System Completes $470 Million
Placement Leveraging InvestorForce`s Online Manager Search Platform

InvestorForce Tops $1.8 Billion In Completed Money Manager Searches

WAYNE, Pa., April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- InvestorForce, pioneer of a technology platform enabling pension plan sponsors and
consultants to conduct money manager searches online, announced that the San Francisco Employees` Retirement System (SFERS)
has completed a money manager search for a $470 million international equity mandate using InvestorForce`s database and
proprietary Search Exchange(SM). SFERS decided to evenly split the mandate between San Diego-based Nicholas Applegate
Capital Management and a Boston-based firm.

``InvestorForce`s model offers a more efficient method of evaluating and selecting money managers by reducing many of the
burdensome administrative tasks that bog down the process allowing us more time to focus on critical strategic decisions. With
the wealth of data and automated evaluation tools that InvestorForce puts at our fingertips, we can conduct a thorough and diligent
evaluation process,`` said Clare Murphy, Executive Director of the San Francisco Retirement System. ``Having a centralized
source of information, customized screening tools and an online meeting center has made this process easier than we could have
ever imagined.``

The SFERS search is the twenty-first money manager search facilitated by InvestorForce. These 21 searches represent more than
$1.8 billion in assets.

``By leveraging technology, we are giving institutional investors like SFERS something they`ve never had before -- a one-stop
search service that`s both time- and cost-efficient. Institutional investors can screen a comprehensive database according to their
own specified criteria, analyze results, invite finalists to make presentations through our web conferencing center and then create a
customized search book to present their results to their committee or board,`` said Jim Morrissey, president and CEO,
InvestorForce. ``Our aim is to utilize the latest technology to bring efficiency to all constituencies in the institutional investment
industry.``

Through InvestorForce`s proprietary Search Exchange(SM), plan sponsors, other fiduciaries and consultants can conduct extensive
manager research, submit customized questionnaires online, receive responses online and analyze responses by creating
side-by-side manager comparisons. They can then narrow the field of candidates to a group of finalists. Throughout the process,
the plan sponsor can hold online meetings with managers, compare performance data utilizing charts and graphs, and analyze
responses to customized inquiries from investment managers to reach a final decision typically after a face-to-face finals
presentation.

About InvestorForce

InvestorForce is a leading Internet technology platform empowering institutional investors, consultants and money managers in
the United States, United Kingdom and Continental Europe.

The site is the first to serve all three constituencies by providing online access and resources to conduct an advanced search and selection process for traditional

Service(SM)), interactive tools (InvestorForce Communication Center(SM)) and online web-conferencing capabilities (InvestorForce Meeting Center(SM)).

managers are registered on the US site. The company is headquartered in Wayne, Pa., with offices in Boston, London, Los Angeles, New York and Wilmington.

Hallo Leute, wollte euch nur eines auf dem Weg mitgeben!
Der jetzt ICGE kauft ist ein nur blöd! Lies euch Euro-am Sonnatag durch. Dort wird über zwei Seiten berschreiben was über Probleme Ariba,Commone Onte u.s.w haben. Ich sage nur eines Ariba ist fast Pleite und Commone One ist auch sehr angeschalgen. Der einzige der Überlebt und als Markführer gesterkt aus der Rezisoin kommen wird heißt I2

I2 ist Markfürher und wird es Arbia und den anderen B2B schon zeigen. Oder habt ihr vergessen. I2 hat für gerade mal 180 Mill.$ eine Firma von Icge gekauft. Vor einem Jahr war das Unternehmen noch 1 Mrd wert. Denk nach, und kauft lieber eine Markfürher auch wenn Icge abzu abgehen wird. see you benny
Empfehle eher die Bild Zeitung wegen eindeutig höherer Kompetenz.
Hi Leutz!
Hi guuruh!
@logistics
Könnte ein grösserer Wurf werden. Habe irgebwo ganz flüchtig gelesen ( bitte nicht schlagen für den fehlenden Link ) dass Logistics Procurement Software die Konkurrenzprodukte von I2 und Freemarkets in den Schatten stellt. Hört sich doch gut an. Vielleicht finde ich ja noch den Artikel zufällig.
@ewigerBulleBenny
Wie ich sehe schaffst du es nach längerer Zeit Ariba zu schreiben. Darunter muss wohl Commerce One leiden. Schade.
keep smiling

so long

Mfg siscoinvestor
Hallo ihr zwei!

Erstens einmal zur dir! ShareholderCGN. Lieber kauf ich mir die Bildzeitung als von Leuten Aktienempfehlungen anzunehmen die doch eh keine Ahnung haben! Und Euro am Sonntag ist genauso gut TeleBörse oder Börse Online. Oder was kaufst du!!!!!

So jetzt einmal zur dir siscoinvestor. Tut mir leid das ich Commerce One falsch und Ariba richtig geschrieben habe. Ist doch eh igal, bei Unternehmen sind doch eh nur noch Schieße. Wenn das eine Unternehmen wie du behauptest so gut ist warum ist dann I2 immer noch Markfürher. Und viele große Unternehmen wie Nike, Pfizer u.s.w kaufen die Software von I2 und nicht von dem anderen Unternehmen. Oder!??? Ich will dir in alles Freundschaft sagen. I2 hat genügend Geld um das kleine Unternehmen zu kaufen. I2 hat zwar genauso Probleme aber sie sind am Besten von den B2B aufgestellt. Oder war vor einigen Wochen los!? ICGE verkaufte Rightworks von gerade einmal 180 Mill$! Vor einem Jahr war es noch 1 Mrd$ wert. Oder!!!! Denk einmal nach und Erkundigt euch einmal, wer Markführer im B2B Gewerbe wirklich ist. See you benny
Hallo Leute,

wollt nur noch eines euch auf dem Weg geben. Internt Cap. Group hat für Rightworks kein Geld sondern 114 Mill. I2 Aktien bekommen. Tut mir leid. Wußte ich nicht! bis bald benny
Hier ein interessantes 2-seitiges(!) Interview mit dem Chefe. http://www.upside.com/Ebiz/3adb7be31.html

@BulleBenny
Über die passende Lektüre zu diskutieren lässt sich schlecht streiten. Ausserdem würde ich das Vergnügen doch lieber ShareholderCGN überlassen. *gg*

Was ich jedoch anführen wollte, ist die Tatsache dass ICGE unter Umständen doch noch ein paar "Blockbuster" (lol) im Sack hat. Keinesfalls habe ich Logistics.com mit dem Unternehmen ITWO vergleichen wollen. Tut mir wirklich leid, wenn bei Dir ein solcher Eindruck erweckt wurde.

btw. Habe den Link nicht mehr gefunden, finde jedoch dass das Interview dafür eine kleine Entschädigung darstellt.

So long - siscoinvestor

SOURCE: Logistics.com, Inc.

Logistics.com Announces Airborne Express Has Selected New Automated
Procurement Technology

Exceptions Management Technology Will Allow Airborne to Rapidly Acquire Truckload Capacity During Surge Periods

BURLINGTON, Mass., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Logistics.com, Inc., the leader in transportation procurement and management
technology, today introduced OptiManage Capacity Finder. Airborne Express (NYSE: ABF - news; www.airborne.com ) will implement the product, a
real-time collaborative solution that helps shippers rapidly acquire capacity from transport providers at contracted rates during surge periods.

``Logistics.com`s OptiManage Capacity Finder automates the difficult and time-intensive process of obtaining truckload capacity when demand surges,`` said
Joe Hete, president of ABX Air, Inc., the airline subsidiary of Airborne Express. ``This technology is expected to improve communication with our network of
transport providers as well as give them visibility to all our unassigned loads, lowering costs and improving our transport provider relationships.``

OptiManage Capacity Finder automates the entire process of obtaining capacity during surge periods such as month-end, quarter-end and the fourth quarter
holiday period by identifying shipments that cannot be moved by Airborne`s primary transport provider, and then using a special web interface to
simultaneously offer the shipment to multiple preferred transport providers. Within minutes, OptiManage Capacity Finder collects transport providers`
responses and determines the best carrier for each shipment, securing capacity at contracted rates. Finally, OptiManage Capacity Finder can award the
shipment to the transport providers using Airborne`s transportation execution system. Shipments are identified, assessed and awarded without any manual
intervention.

OptiManage Capacity Finder is part of Logistics.com`s OptiManage solution, a comprehensive set of web-based modules that empower shippers to manage
and execute their day-to-day transportation needs. In addition to enabling companies to secure short-term transportation capacity more efficiently,
OptiManage gives shippers unsurpassed control over the transportation resources in their supply chains.

``We are pleased to expand our strong relationship with Airborne Express and announce the availability of OptiManage Capacity Finder, a breakthrough
exceptions management technology and a natural addition to our OptiManage solution,`` said Joe Wagner, senior vice president sales, Logistics.com. ``With
the introduction of OptiManage Capacity Finder, Logistics.com is continuing to deliver on its commitment to providing leading-edge solutions that enable
collaboration between shippers and transport providers for an optimized supply chain.``

Airborne Express is a long-time Logistics.com customer, and the licensing of OptiManage Capacity Finder presents a significant revenue opportunity for
Logistics.com.

About Logistics.com

Based in Burlington, Mass., Logistics.com empowers shippers and transport providers to efficiently buy, sell, manage and optimize transportation services
over land, air and ocean. The company`s three offerings include OptiManage, an automation and optimization tool for daily, mission-critical shipper

____________________________________________________________
vielleicht nicht gerade neu, da vom 12. April aber nur um hier Mut zu machen:
....
Like so much of the jargon associated with the dot-com mania, the term B2B has outlived its usefulness. The abbreviation for business-to-business e-commerce essentially refers to an early guess -- thus far proved wrong -- that business would soon be conducted on superefficient e-marketplaces, or online exchanges. Investors bet big that pioneering startups would reap huge profits by taking a slice of each transaction.

Time to retire that notion. Losing money and running through remaining cash, stocks of pioneers like Ventro (NasdaqNM:VNTR - news), now at 50 cents a share; VerticalNet (NasdaqNM:VERT - news), at $1.50; and Internet Capital Group (NasdaqNM:ICGE - news), at $1.75, are trading at levels that show Wall Street has essentially given up on them. ``People have realized that you can`t just put up a system and expect to change an industry,`` says Internet strategy consultant Peter Cohan.

Breaking News
Tax Cut Deal Helps Stocks Move Up

By Lawrence Carrel
May 1, 2001

BLUE CHIPS led the stock market higher today as investors
cheered news that House and Senate Republicans agreed to push
for a 11-year $1.35 trillion tax reduction plan.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which had already been higher
before the news broke around noon on the East Coast, soared 142
points, or 1.3%, by 3 p.m. The Nasdaq Composite Index, which had
danced around the unchanged line most of the morning was up 35
points, or 1.7%. The S&P 500 rose 12, or 0.9%.

The tentative deal would give President Bush most -- but not all --
of the $1.6 trillion tax cut he campaigned on. Negotiators made
concessions to moderate Republicans and Democrats to ensure that
the bill, a foundation of Bush`s economic policy, would pass the
evenly-divided Senate.

Included in the deal is an immediate tax cut of $100 billion retroactive
to this year, aimed at stimulating economic growth immediately.
That`s the part the market likes the most.

The news helped awaken a sleepy market that was drifting without
much direction following two conflicting economic reports. One report
showed construction spending rising, but another said the
manufacturing sector continued to be sluggish.

The Dow was the only major index that showed consistent gains
through the day, benefiting from Procter & Gamble`s (PG) strong
earnings announcement and reports that the Bush administration`s
defense spending plans could be a boon to Boeing (BA). Technology
shares were mixed.

Procter & Gamble climbed 7% to $64.40 to lead the Dow. The
consumer products company posted operating income of 71 cents a
share, beating analysts` consensus estimate by two cents. Boeing
spiked 3% to $63.83 after The Wall Street Journal reported
President Bush may propose adding $15.5 billion to the budget to
build more Boeing C-17 cargo jets, which have seen disappointing
sales.

As for today`s economic reports, National Association of Purchasing
Management reported this morning that its April index of economic
activity in the manufacturing sector number was 43.2. That was a tick
ahead of March`s 43.1, but nearly a point below economists`
predictions of 44. Any number below 50 denotes a signs of a
contraction.

"The manufacturing sector is in its ninth month of decline and continues sluggish at best," said the association`s report. "Major
concerns are energy costs and softening demand across many markets." Two bright spots: companies appear to be working off
excess inventories and prices are declining.

The opposite picture came from the Commerce Department, which reported construction spending in March rose 1.3%. It had been
expected to be unchanged. Business and government spent record amounts on schools, roads and offices. Homebuilding rose too.
The gains were so strong that they may prompt an upward revision in the first-quarter gross domestic product.

"That shows the consumer is still out there spending," said Barry Hyman, chief investment strategist for brokerage Ehrenkrantz King
Nussbaum. "But, then you have a weak manufacturing sector, a sector that by all indications is in recession"

Among today`s biggest gainer was the battered Internet travel agency Priceline.com (PCLN), which soared 25% to $6.02. Goldman
Sachs analyst Anthony Noto upgraded the stock to Market Outperform from Market Perform. Noto said the company has cut costs,
improved service and stabilized growth. The first quarter could be its last unprofitable one, he said. Two years ago Priceline stock sold
for $162.

Bond prices rose, sending yields down. The 10-year Treasury note fell to 5.28% compared with 5.34% yesterday. The 30-year
bond`s slid to 5.73% from 5.79% yesterday.
was ist heute nur los!

Cmgi fast 40% und icge 35% ???? Kein mir einer mehr sagen. Die Aktie hießt commerce One 924107. Tut mir lied habe ich halt falsch geschrieben. Dank noch, das was im Aktionär drin stand. Habe das nur ganz kurz im Euro am Sonntag gelsen. Die habe das so eine Seite wo alles von den anderen Magazin drin steht. Also sagt mir beschied was los ist.

CMGI: da erinnere ich mich dass CMGI und Aether Systems in einem WSJ-Artikel als Unternehmen genannt wurden, die mehr Cash innehaben, als die Marktkapitalisierung darstellt. Aber sonst finde ich nicht zu CMGI. Vielleicht haben sie auf der einigen der Analystenkonferrenzen was gesagt, was noch nicht an die Öffentlichkeit gedrungen ist. Dies ist aber eher unwahrscheinlich. Eher gilt: Incubatoren und Holdings reagieren furchtbar sensibel auf den Markt. Also: Voilá!

MORGAN STANLEY STUDY DEMONSTRATES TRANSPORT PROVIDERS PREFER LOGISTICS.COM

Trucking Industry Rates Logistics.com`s Procurement Solution as Superior to i2 Technologies and Free Markets in Seven of Eight Study Areas

BURLINGTON, Mass.(April 17, 2001) - Logistics.com, the leader in transportation procurement and management technology, today announced a recent Morgan Stanley report demonstrates that transport providers rate Logistics.com`s OptiBid Network™ procurement solution as superior to i2 Technologies` and Free Markets` procurement solutions. The study, which surveyed over 40 leading trucking companies, focused on transport providers` preferred structure in responding to shippers` requests for quotes for annual transportation contracts.
The Morgan Stanley report states, "When it comes to third party software, carriers preferred Logistics.com (OptiBid)." The report goes on to say, "Of the three primary software bidding packages, Logistics.com ranked highest among carriers on the basis of taking conditional bidding into account, completeness of data required for bid analysis and providing the training and tools necessary to respond to bid requests."
Logistics.com`s OptiBid is a multi-level strategic transportation procurement solution. OptiBid Network enables shippers to establish optimal strategic transportation plans based on critical business factors, including freight variability, network flows and transport provider rates and service levels.

Categories Logistics.com led include: "Understanding the carrier`s business," "Taking conditional bidding into account," "Ease of doing business," "Providing you with training and tools to respond efficiently," "Accounting for capacity to cover high volume lanes," and "Completeness of data required for bid analysis." High ratings were received for "Accounting for attributes other than price" and "Fair process."
"Our experience and expertise in transportation technology enables us to be unique in our focus on the interaction between shippers and transport providers," said John Lanigan, Logistics.com CEO. "We offer superior technology for both leading shipper and transport provider companies. This is a key reason why OptiBid Network, which is clearly delivering valuable results to shippers, is also valued by transport providers. We truly take a collaborative approach in helping construct low cost, high commitment transportation networks."

ICG`s network spans the three primary sectors of B2B e-commerce with:

-- Technology infrastructure companies that establish supply chain
and commerce software platforms to allow for better, faster
information management and transaction processing between buyers
and suppliers;

-- Horizontal service providers that automate and streamline non-core
processes and enable the execution of online transactions with
critical services such as credit, logistics and procurement; and

-- Vertical solution providers that coordinate, organize and
streamline information within specific industry supply chains.


The partner companies are further categorized by three stages of development -- public, developed or emerging. The public category includes ICG partner companies that are publicly traded. As this categorization relates to ICG`s private partner companies, the developed category represents those believed to have the greatest near-term value potential for both shareholders and the network, based on a set of stringent criteria including a proven, differentiated business model, a number one or two competitive market position and a strong management team, among others. The emerging category includes companies that, as their businesses mature, may be able to meet the same stringent criteria as those in the developed category.
