Cisco Announces Extension of Tender Offer for WebEx

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2007 -- Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced that it is extending its previously announced tender offer for all outstanding shares of WebEx Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: WEBX) until 12:00 Midnight, New York City time, on Monday, May 21, 2007 (which is the end of the day on May 21, 2007).

Cisco expects to complete its tender offer in the first half of the fourth quarter of Cisco's fiscal year 2007.
