CommerceHub Furthers Market Leadership With Key Milestone Achievements in 2005

Increased Transaction Volume and Supplier Connections Are Key Signs of Continued Success for Fulfillment and Integration Solutions Provider

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 12, 2005 -- Shop.org Annual Summit -- CommerceHub, a leading provider of fulfillment and integration solutions for retailers operating in multi-channel environments, today announced record success for 2005 to date. Customer wins, extended contracts, as well as increased transactions and supplier connections all factor into CommerceHub's continued market leadership.

Revenue growth for CommerceHub is up by 50 percent, with an increase in transaction volume from 3.5 million in August 2004 to 5.3 million through the first eight months of this year. The company also surpassed its two thousandth supplier connection, which is more than double the number of connections made at this time last year.

"We are delighted at the progress made over the past eight months," said Frank Poore, president and CEO of CommerceHub. "With our network of retailers and suppliers continuing to grow at a rapid pace, we are well positioned for additional success as we approach Q4 and the crucial holiday season."

In addition to the strong growth of its network, CommerceHub extended its value to customers earlier this year with the release of a Partner Relationship Management application, a first for the retail supply chain market. The new application provides users with increased visibility and insight around fulfillment network performance, allowing retailers to establish better trading relationships and to manage supply chains with greater efficiency.

CommerceHub also continued to build its customer roster through an expansion of its engagement with leading warehouse operator, Costco, including the addition of Costco's Canadian operation as a customer. Leading consumer electronics retailer Circuit City, among others, selected CommerceHub for its drop-ship solution earlier this year.

As the industry of multi-channel retailing matures, retailers consistently look to CommerceHub for its leading drop-ship solution.
