Intelius Selected by MSN as Exclusive, Integrated White Pages Channel Provider

Fully Integrated Agreement Provides Consumers With Access to Free People Search Information Combined With Rich Detailed Results, Providing Users With the Most Comprehensive Online "People Information"

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - July 16, 2007) - Intelius, Inc., a company that empowers consumers and businesses with online information for intelligent decisions, today announced it has been selected by MSN as the exclusive provider for its White Pages channel on MSN.

This new fully integrated service allows users to search for phone numbers and addresses for free, in addition to offering the ability to easily access more detailed information about individuals, including property information, relatives and criminal records for a fee. People search continues to be a significant driver of Web traffic and is responsible for approximately 40 percent of all online searches, according to a Harris Interactive survey.

"Intelius has proven to be an industry leader for people search services, and we are very excited to begin a relationship with the company, especially as demand for the service continues to grow," said Rick VanderKnyff, Senior Editor for local content at MSN.

Intelius is a trusted leader in people search, working with respected brands such as Yahoo!, AOL, InfoSpace and AT&T. Intelius is the only company that provides partners with an end-to-end, fully integrated solution, including white pages and public record searches.

"MSN is one of the most highly trafficked sites on the Internet, and we are pleased to collaborate with them to provide both free and detailed information about people to their loyal users," said Ed Petersen, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Intelius. "We live in an increasingly transient society, making it difficult for people to keep in touch and research and maintain accurate information about others. Our goal is to address this evolving and growing demand by constantly diversifying and expanding our offerings and by building partnerships that are beneficial to end-users and our partners."

The new MSN service can be accessed through by clicking on the white pages link at the top right hand corner of the site. The link provides MSN users with an Intelius-integrated link from the MSN White Pages channel.
