engine to its 150 VISPs in a brandable format and to use the Hermia search
engine on the website, another of Affinity's subsidiaries.

addition of a branded search engine to its portfolio will further enhance
the branding opportunities available to an Affinity client.

leading consumer portal. The search engine will be directly
marketed to Affinity's 1.75 million consumer users.

pleased to be able to announce this deal. It provides Affinity with an
acclaimed search facility that will add value to the service it provides
its VISPs and their users in addition to securing us with a major
distribution partner. I believe that Affinity's users are an untapped part
of the UK's search market that may account to between 20% and 30% of the
total marketplace. Thus a deal with Affinity has allowed us to potentially
tie up a major chunk of the market place in one swoop."
