Glossary

Conclusion
Buy FUEL on the IPO.

Business
FUEL is a technology company that has developed an Artificial Intelligence and Big Data-driven predictive modeling and automated decision-making platform.

There are tens of billions of daily trades across all digital advertising exchanges, thousands of times more than the number of daily trades executed by NASDAQ and the NYSE combined.

FUEL's Artificial Intelligence, or AI, system autonomously purchases ad spots, or impressions, one at a time, on these exchanges to create portfolios of impressions designed to optimize the goals of advertisers, such as increased sales, heightened brand awareness and decreased cost per customer acquisition

Competition
FUEL competes with large, well-established companies such as Google, Facebook and Yahoo!, digital advertising networks, companies that offer demand-side platforms that allow advertisers to purchase inventory directly and manage their own customer data, divisions of certain advertising agencies, including agency trading desks, that place digital advertising on behalf of the agencies' clients, and other companies, many of which claim to use advanced technologies to optimize advertising campaigns.

Intellectual property
As of June 30, 2013, FUEL had filed five non-provisional patent applications in the United States and three Patent Cooperation Treaty applications..

Use of Proceeds
FUEL expects to net $90 million from its IPO. Proceeds are allocated to working capital and general corporate purposes.
