InfoUSA, Omaha, NE, a business and consumer information products provider, said July 1 that it bought Hill-Donnelly Directory Co., Tampa, FL.


Hill-Donnelly's founder published the first cross-reference directory in 1917. The company now produces more than 230 cross-reference directories in print and CD-ROM formats annually. Its directories contain a total of more than 25 million listings and include many major markets such as New York City, Phoenix, Tampa, Las Vegas and Honolulu. Its more than 50,000 customers use Hill-Donnelly products extensively for marketing, investigative and reference applications.


The acquisition provides infoUSA with another information company to complement its products with Hill-Donnelly's existing directory business.


Hill-Donnelly will offer its customer base sales leads and other marketing products from infoUSA through CD-ROM and the Internet. Hill-Donnelly will continue to be run by its president, Lee Hill III.


"The synergies between Hill-Donnelly and infoUSA will enable us to eliminate duplicate costs and deliver greater value to Hill-Donnelly customers," said Vinod Gupta, founder/chairman of infoUSA.
