Myprimetime.com Reaches Milestone of One Million Registered Web Site Users, Attracts Nearly Four Million Unique Monthly Site Visitors

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 13, 2000 - Myprimetime.com (www.myprimetime.com), the definitive online resource for baby boomers and part of MyPrimeTime, Inc.'s all-band network, today reports it has reached the milestone of one million registered users of its Web site.

According to PC Data Online (www.pcdataonline.com), a provider of technology market research and Internet audience measurement statistics, more than 3.7 million unique users visited the myprimetime.com site during the month of August 2000.

These latest Web rankings further solidify myprimetime.com's position as the category leader among Internet sites featuring content tailored specifically to the interests of baby boomers. Based on total traffic volume, myprimetime.com is rated #206 among all Internet sites. More than half of all Internet users are in the baby boomer generation, defined as the 81 million people in the U.S. who are 35 to 54 years old.

"We've reached the critically important milestone of one million registered site users significantly faster than we projected. In less than a year since launching, myprimetime.com has clearly joined the elite group of top Web sites, and is showing no sign of slowing down," said Craig Forman, Co-Founder and CEO of MyPrimeTime, Inc.

"Myprimetime.com continues to grow by nearly 50 percent each month," said Ann Winblad, co-founding partner of Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, a lead investor of MyPrimeTime who also serves on the company's Board of Directors. "Sustained growth at this level is difficult to maintain. MyPrimeTime's content has proven appeal to a wide cross section of people, and there is no reason to expect it will diminish."
