IPDN is in the recruitment and advertising business for diverse minorities. Its exclusive partnership with Monster Worldwide (MWW), $ 569mm market cap, terminated December 31, 2012.

IPDN has a new non-exclusive relation with LinkedIn (LNKD), which started January 1, 2013.

The most recent financials are for the nine months ended September 2012, so they are in essence out-of-date, and also not relevant because IPDN’s marketing relationships changed December 31, 2012.
