From the Paper:

"i2 was founded in 1988 by Sanjiv Sidhu and Ken Sharma. It started based out of a small 2-bedroom apartment in Dallas where the first program was written. Since then i2 has grown to earn more than $1 billion in revenues. They have 40 offices worldwide where they employ a total of 4,890 employees. Currently i2 has more than 1,000 customers and 500 deployments in 2001. That same year they reported a pro forma net loss of $149,013,000. This is not uncommon, at this time, for many companies are currently experiencing losses due to the slump in today's economy."
