Yellow Pages and local search company RH Donnelley emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on February 1 under a new name: Dex One Corporation.

The company will continue to offer its Dex-branded suite, which includes online and mobile search services, print yellow pages directories, voice-search platforms and pay-per-click networks.

RH Donnelley filed for Chapter 11 on May 28, 2009. Its reorganization plan was confirmed January 12 in US Bankruptcy Court in Delaware and went into effect January 29.

Dex One's board of directors includes David Swanson, company CEO; and Alan Schultz, chairman, president and CEO of Valassis Communications.

RH Donnelley expanded the reach of its local search site, DexKnows.com, to more markets in the US in 2008.

A Dex One representative could not be immediately reached for comment.
