Internet Capital Group Inc. expanded its foray into the growing market for "on-demand" Web-based software, saying yesterday that it had acquired a 36 percent stake in Vcommerce Corp., of Scottsdale, Ariz., for $13 million. The Wayne-based technology-investing firm spent years struggling to stay in business after the dot-com bust of the early 2000s. Internet Capital has been trying to lurch back toward profitability with a more focused business model: The firm's new investments are almost exclusively in companies that provide software online.

Internet Capital Group Inc. said yesterday it lost $39.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2001, compared with a loss of $561.2 million for the same period a year ago. The Wayne company, which invests in e-commerce businesses, attributed the improvement primarily to a reduction of the number of companies in its portfolio and cost reductions at the remaining ones. At the end of last year, ICG had investments in 47 companies, compared with 71 at the end of 2000. The company said it was now focusing most of its resources on 20 of the remaining 47. Walter Buckley, ICG's chairman and chief executive officer, said two of the companies - iSky Inc., a provider of customer care services, and online marketplace specialist LinkShare Corp.

At the time, it seemed like a crazy thing to say. In the space of just over a year, Internet Capital Group chief executive Walter Buckley had watched his company become a spectacular success - at its peak in 2000, it was worth more than $50 billion - only to fall as quickly as it had risen, the embodiment of the dot-com boom and bust. But there was Buckley in November 2000, his innate optimism thriving despite his company's decline. "We have never been more confident of what we're building," Buckley told The Inquirer.

Internet Capital Group Inc., the once-high-flying Wayne e-commerce company, said yesterday that it lost $561 million in the fourth quarter, but still expected to finish 2001 with more than $200 million in cash and marketable investments. Excluding write-downs and other non-cash items, ICG lost $200 million in the fourth quarter and $484 million for the year. ICG invests in other business-to-business Internet companies, and it needs enough cash to get to the point where it can recognize the value of more of those investments.

Internet Capital Group Inc., the Wayne company that invests in e-commerce start-ups, said yesterday that two Hong Kong investors offered to pay $100 million in cash for ICG's stake in its Asia subsidiary. ICG had purchased 53 percent of ICG Asia Ltd. for $116.8 million last year. ICG Asia manages business-to-business exchanges in Asia. The sale of its interest in ICG Asia is another move by the company - once worth more than General Motors Corp. - to pare operations and conserve funds in a market climate that no longer favors Internet companies.

THE LAND GRAB is still on. And you'd have to be in a coma not to notice it. Despite the blowup of many dot-coms earlier this year, every company on the Internet - from start-ups to established industry - is fighting for a place in B-to-B, the business of selling to businesses online. That's what a trio of the region's top B-to-B Net market makers said at a panel discussion before almost 600 people at a World Affairs Council meeting last week at the Union League. "The Internet's benefits of efficiency, productivity and speed will touch all businesses in all industries throughout the world," said Walter Buckley, president and CEO of Internet Capital Group, a holding company that provides financial and technical assistance to its network of B-to-B companies.

When last we visited Internet Capital Group, the founders were busy building a fortune to rival Walter Annenberg's, Wall Street valued the company in the same league as General Motors Corp., and Fortune 500 companies were pouring money into it as if it were the next Microsoft Corp. A mere five months later, founders Walter Buckley and Ken Fox are just your average Internet multimillionaires, not billionaires. Their paper fortunes have dwindled as shares in their company slid from a high of $200 in early January to $29.94 Friday.
