New York, NY - September 19, 2006 -  INFONXX, the world's largest and fastest growing independent provider of directory assistance and enhanced information services, announced today that it has completed the acquisitions of two progressive global companies: Excell Services, the US-based independent provider of directory assistance, operator services, and inbound customer service, and Conduit Limited, a European information services company. Through these acquisitions, INFONXX will process more than one billion directory assistance inquiries this year.

"These acquisitions progress the INFONXX growth strategy, bringing innovative service development and an extension of our global network of capabilities and markets," said Robert Pines, Global CEO and Founder of INFONXX. "The expanded reach and resources of INFONXX will be good for customers and employees alike."

The Excell Services acquisition increases capabilities, momentum, and adds more service options for current INFONXX customers, including operator services and customer care.
