LinkedIn Corporation, which describes itself as “the world’s largest professional network on the Internet with more than 90 million members in over 200 countries and territories,” has filed a registration statement.

Company website: linkedin.com

SEC filings: sec.gov

From the Company’s S-1, filed January 27, 2011:

We are the world’s largest professional network on the Internet with more than 90 million members in over 200 countries and territories. Through our proprietary platform, members are able to create, manage and share their professional identity online, build and engage with their professional network, access shared knowledge and insights, and find business opportunities, enabling them to be more productive and successful.

Our 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. At the core of our platform are our members, who create profiles that serve as their professional profiles and are accessible by any other member, as well as (unless a member chooses otherwise) anyone with an Internet connection. We believe that our platform allows our members to compete more effectively, make better decisions faster and manage their careers to achieve their full potential.

We generate revenue from enterprises and professional organizations by selling our hiring solutions and marketing solutions offline through our field sales organization or online on our website. We also generate revenue from members, acting as individuals or on behalf of their enterprise or professional organization, who subscribe to our premium services. We strive to ensure that our hiring solutions, marketing solutions and premium subscriptions provide both a high level of value for our customers and also a high degree of relevance for our members. We believe this monetization strategy properly aligns objectives among members, customers and our entire network and supports our financial objective of sustainable revenue and earnings growth over the long term.

We have achieved significant growth as our network has scaled and as we have expanded our product offerings. In the nine months ended September 30, 2010, net revenue increased $80.6 million, or 100%, and adjusted EBITDA increased $22.3 million, or 238%, over the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

Underwriters: Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan, BofA Merrill Lynch, Allen & Company and UNS Investment Bank
