Revenue Increases 60% Over Previous Period

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 19, 2005 -- ON24 Inc., the global leader in webcast and multimedia communication solutions, today announced results for the 1st half of its 2005 fiscal year, ending June 30th. Revenue for the 1st half grew by 60% over the previous period, driven by strong growth in Europe and Asia; continued demand from the enterprise, publishing, life sciences and government sectors; and the successful launch of new products: ON24 Simple Audio, and enhancements to ON24 Demo Webcasts.

The company's international expansion includes the formation of ON24, Ltd. and the opening of a London office earlier this year. European customers include Cartesis, VNU and Genesys Conferencing. In addition, ON24 developed several local partners in the Asia-Pacific region to support its business in the China, Korea, and Hong Kong markets.

ON24 added two new products to its offerings. ON24 Simple Audio is an easy-to-use product that allows for the quick creation of on-demand audio webcasts with synchronized slides. The product also features advanced registration and reporting capabilities. ON24 Demo Webcasts allows for the integration of software or web-based product demonstrations within events produced with the company's flagship product, Webcast Center.
