Leading Small Business Software Company Finalizes Private Investment
To Fund Planned Domestic and Global Growth Strategy

SAN MATEO, Calif. (March 5, 2002)- Elibrium, Inc., a leading provider of productivity software and services, announced today the the company has closed more than $2 Million in equity financing from investors led by Next Level Management, a San Francisco-based investment company focused on companies with proven business models. The investment will be used to expand distribution of the company's small business software globally, increase operational efficiencies, and release annual enhancements to the company's award-winning MySoftware line.

Elibrium's management team identified three key objectives for 2002, including expansion into the international market, annual product updates to coincide with major operating systems and partner upgrades, and re-evaluation of operational strategies. Initial plans for global distribution are underway in the United Kingdom and Australia, with expansion into other European countries and Asia in 2003. In order to meet the needs of customers, Elibrium recently upgraded their top selling MySoftware titles with added functionality and Microsoft Windows XP compatibility. As a result, sales of this product line have increased 150-200 percent and Elibrium plans to capitalize on future technology updates. The company has reduced expenses and increased gross margin on all products by automating its supply chain operations and re-locating to a new warehouse leased and operated by Elibrium.

"When the management team purchased the assets of the Elibrium division from ClickAction in June 2001, our plan was to focus on our small business customers' needs and to set up the new company to execute product enhancements, promotions, distribution and customer support efficiently and accurately," said Christina Willett, President and CEO. "According to this plan, we are now shipping with greatly increased accuracy and on-time rates from our recently opened warehouse. We expect our year-over-year operational expenditures to decrease while our revenues increase. Our revenue-per-employee remains among the highest in our industry."

"Our confidence in Elibrium's strategy and management team is evident by our investment," said Eugene Wu, Partner of Next Level Management. "The company has adapted to changing markets over the years and now is well positioned to capitalize on the growing small business market segment."

Elibrium was recently awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by Staples Inc. in recognition of its consistent ability to meet the needs of their small business customers with quality software at great prices. Staples is an $11 billion retailer of office supplies, business services, furniture and technology to small business customers throughout North America, United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands and Portugal.
