Investors can access these calls on the Web by going to the 
company's Web site or by visiting any of the investor portals in 
CCBN's individual investor network, including America Online's 
Personal Finance Channel, CompuServe, Netscape, Wall Street City, 
Worth, Money.com and The Motley Fool. For example, in just three 
clicks an investor can access a comprehensive calendar of conference 
call webcasts on The Motley Fool. Log onto www.fool.com. Click on 
"quotes and data." Then, click on "conference calls." Investors can 
also listen to these calls by logging onto CCBN's newly launched 
individual investor center, www.companyboardroom.com. In each case, 
users will find a central library of earnings related conference call 
webcasts and financial events from more than 6,000 public companies. 
Tuning in to earnings related webcasts makes it possible for investors 
to listen-in on the previously private chats of CEO's and analysts. 
Investors can listen live, or at their convenience via an online 
replay. And, they can listen for free. First-time listeners should go 
to the Web site fifteen minutes prior to the event to download and 
install any necessary audio software, which is also free.  
While anyone can go to the portals mentioned above to listen to 
these calls, institutional investors also have the option of logging 
onto CCBN's password protected event management site, StreetEvents 
(www.streetevents.com). In StreetEvents, institutional investors have 
access to the dial-in number and pass codes of the calls so that they 
can ask questions. StreetEvents also allows institutional investors to 
identify, organize and track the hundreds of conference calls that 
occur each day during earnings season, to download events of interest 
into their Outlook calendar and to RSVP to events online.  
For public companies, CCBN's webcast services allow them to 
publish their earnings release and conference call webcasts 
simultaneously onto their IR Web site, onto the desktops of portfolio 
managers and analysts at leading Wall Street institutions and onto 
CCBN's powerful network of retail investment portals.
