08/06/98 America Online to buy Mirabilis for $287 mln

America Online Inc said on Monday it had agreed to acquire the Israel-based company Mirabilis Ltd. for $287 million.
The purchase price could grow to as much as $120 million depending on Mirabilis's operations over the next three years.
Mirabilis developed ICQ technology, which informs Internet users when family, friends and business colleagues are online and enables them to exchange messages in real-time.ICQ also gives users the ability to play games and exchange files.
More than 12 million people have registered to use the technology, America Online said in a statement.
A substantial portion of the initial $287 million purchase price is expected to be accounted for as in-process research and development in America Online's fiscal fourth quarter, ending June 30.
America Online said it does not expect the purchase of Mirabilis to have any negative effect on operating earnings.
Mirabilis will continue to be based in Tel Aviv and will be operated by its founding team as a free Web-based service with its own brand identity, America Online said.
