Description of Business
Convera Corporation was established through the combination of the former Excalibur Technologies Corporation ("Excalibur") and Intel Corporation's ("Intel") Interactive Media Services ("IMS") division on December 21, 2000. Convera previously provided vertical search services to trade publishers. Convera's technology and services were designed to help publishers build a loyal online community and increase their internet advertising revenues. As the global economic downturn deepened in early and mid 2009 and our stock price continued to fall, in an effort to curtail continuing losses, preserve cash and maximize value for our stockholders, the board of directors (the "Board") and management of Convera developed a plan of dissolution and liquidation (the "Plan of Dissolution"), after reviewing our business and financial conditions and long-term prospects and considering various alternatives.
