MarketTools® Moves Headquarters to San Francisco

Leading Market Research Company to Tap Into Innovative Silicon Valley Culture, Grow Research Footprint

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 9, 2006 -- MarketTools, Inc., the defining provider of on-demand market research, announced today that it has moved its headquarters from Mill Valley, CA to San Francisco, CA. In San Francisco, the company plans to take advantage of the city's accelerated technology and business climate to continue honing its research expertise, technology innovation and consumer reach. MarketTools also wants to be geographically closer to Silicon Valley to expand its employee base from the East Bay and South Bay talent pool. MarketTools' new San Francisco office space is located at 150 Spear Street and comprises two floors at the new location.

MarketTools' overall business continues to grow at a rapid pace. In 2005, revenue grew by more than 50 percent as the company executed more than 2,000 full-service research studies on behalf of their Fortune 500 clients, global market research companies and other organizations. Last year, Zoomerang, a division of MarketTools and leader in self-service online research, hit its 100 million survey milestone with more than 750,000 global users since its inception in 1999. The company also added specialized research capabilities such as Hispanic Reach™, an optimized Hispanic research service with a proprietary methodology. In addition, MarketTools was awarded a U.S. patent for online survey deployment technology.

"MarketTools already has a strong track record of research innovation and the ability to deliver the next generation of market research, insight and vision," said Amal Johnson, CEO of MarketTools. "By moving to San Francisco, we're in a better position to add new thinking to our company, and take advantage of emerging trends in information delivery and interactive communities."
