••3. Consistency of the profitability

LinkedIn Corp operates a social networking website used for professional networking. The Company's website allows members to post a profile of their professional expertise and accomplishments.

LinkedIn Corp was incorporated in Delaware on March 6, 2003, under the name LinkedIn, Ltd. and changed its name to LinkedIn Corporation in January 2005. The Company operates an online professional network on the Internet through which the Company's members are able to create, manage and share their professional identities online, build and engage with their professional networks, access shared knowledge and insights, and find business opportunities, enabling them to be more productive and successful. The Company currently has approximately over 400 million members in over 200 countries and territories. The Company offers free solutions including Stay Connected & Informed, Advance My Career and Ubiquitous Access; and Monetized Solutions including Talent Solutions, Marketing Solutions, and Premium Subscriptions. Its comprehensive platform provides members with solutions, including applications and tools, to search, connect and communicate with business contacts, learn about attractive career opportunities, join industry groups, research organizations and share information. The Company provides the following key benefits to their members: ability to manage their professional identity, enhanced ability to build and engage with their professional network, access to knowledge, insights and opportunities, aid in matching talent with opportunity, an efficient marketing channel, targeted advertising, and an increase in employee productivity. In addition, its core value of putting members first may conflict with the short-term interests of its business, the number of its registered members is higher than the number of actual members, and a substantial majority of its page views are generated by a minority of its members. Finally, it expects to face increasing competition in the market for online professional networks. The Company is subject to a number of foreign and domestic laws and regulations that affect companies conducting business online, many of which are still evolving and could be interpreted in ways that could harm its business.
