Database and list marketing giant InfoUSA plans to spreading its business overseas, initially targeting China and India.

The company said in a release it is in discussions with several overseas partners to compile a telephone-verified database for these countries.

Vin Gupta, chairman/CEO of InfoUSA, said in a statement that the need for comprehensive databases in these markets was tremendous. "At this time there is no single entity filling this need in these countries," he said.

InfoUSA currently has operations in the US, Canada and the UK. It also stated plans to undergo a name change to designate its global status and pursue business in other countries such as Australia, New Zealand and Ireland.
