David Jeffs, President of Communicate, commented: "I am thrilled with our progress through the third quarter and first nine months of 2005. We had our best-ever third quarter revenues as well as our eleventh straight profitable quarter, with organic revenues increasing 65% compared to the same period of 2004. Nine month organic revenues increased more than 100%, while net income increased 21%, compared to the same period of 2004. A very important gauge of our success is the fact that we had 23 employees at the end of the third quarter compared to 12 employees at the end of Q3 2004 - resulting in a stronger eCommerce company more capable of moving to the next level."

Year End Outlook:

"The fourth quarter accounted for 42% of our annual revenues in 2004. For 2005, I expect a similar percentage of revenues to come from the fourth quarter, which would make for the best sales quarter in company history and also our twelfth-consecutive profitable quarter. Our goal for the 2005 peak holiday shopping period is to attain as many new clients as possible and generate the most revenues as possible. To keep our efforts focused in this goal during this critical time, we have decided to launch the Body.com online store in the first quarter of 2006, when we can ensure that it receives the necessary level of customer service and marketing to facilitate its success."
