Mr. Lay,
Your assistant contacted me a couple weeks back with the message that the
attached was not an opportunity you could consider at this time.? Thanks
very much, though, for taking a look at it.
I have one follow-up question for you -- could you recommend another Enron
executive that might be a candidate for such an opportunity??
To help you answer the question, the company is Juno Online?Services,
Inc.?(NASDAQ: JWEB), a leading US ISP.? Juno is very interested in working
with (and in advanced-stage discussions with) companies in the energy
industry and working with them on strategic telecommunications and marketing
Information about Juno is available at "About Juno" on Juno's Web site
http://www.juno.com.? I've also attached an executive summary to update you
(or the relevant person at Enron) as to the current status of Juno's
Thanks very much for your assistance, and I hope that this message finds you
Executive Overview of?Juno --

The company finished 4Q00 w/ $56MM in cash.? Total net loss for 2001 was
projected to be $10-$25MM, as the company focuses on billable services,
continues to reduce expenses, and looks to develop advertising and other
ancillary revenue streams.? The company is confident that it can meet
or?beat the loss target and made explicit statements that on-hand cash
resources are "more than adequate" to get the business profitable.? The
company has not publicly given a time-line for profitability to maintain
The company controls one of the largest dialup subscriber audiences (4MM
active subscribers as of 4Q00, 850K of whom are billable) on the Internet
today and is the 4th largest US ISP (after AOL, ELNK, and MSN).
2000 revenue came in at $114MM, 65% of which was derived from subscription
fees and 35% from advertising.? 2001 revenues are expected to come in
between $100MM-$120MM, with the revenue mix moving toward 80% subscription
and 20% advertising due to increased focus on billable services and the
soft Internet advertising markets.
Juno has announced broadband agreements for its Juno Express product
covering all mainstream broadband transport platforms -- AT&T Broadband,
Time Warner Cable, and Comcast (cable); Covad (DSL); Hughes (satellite); and
Metricom (wireless).
The company has announced wireless distribution agreements for it's Juno
Mobile product with Palm and Sprint PCS.? Other agreements are likely to be
The company has powerful propietary technology assets that give it a
competitive advantage.? The company has launched (internally but not
publicly) a new business unit -- Juno Solutions -- to investigate the
opportunity to license these technology assets to third parties both
domestically and internationally.?
The Juno Virtual Supercomputer Project represents another example of Juno's
efforts to develop ancillary revenue streams.? This distributed computing
initiative aims to leverage unused computer processing power from Juno's MMs
of subscribers, aggregating it for sale to biotech, pharmaceutical, and
computational chemistry firms.?
