A publically traded company, Lists Unlimited, is in the business of selling lists custom generated according to the needs of the customer. In 2001, the company recorded revenues of $150 million. List Unlimited revenues have grown at a rapid rate due to an unusual number of acquisitions the company made during the year 2000.
