With LoanExplorer, consumers can access a real-time, informative mortgage
shopping experience by anonymously comparing loan offers side by side,
including loan product details, costs, and rates based on their individual
financial situation. After comparing offers on LoanExplorer, borrowers have
the option to connect with the lenders that best match their needs through a
toll-free telephone number displayed by each lender or by contacting the
lender electronically.

For lender partners, LoanExplorer will deliver potential borrowers using
multiple channels, thereby improving conversion rates and expanding reach.
Lenders will be able to display their brand, logo, products and services along
with rates and fees that are relevant to the consumer's requirements.

"In addition to being a best in class tool for consumers, LoanExplorer will
dramatically improve customer acquisition economics for lenders," said Doug
Lebda, chairman and CEO of LendingTree. "LoanExplorer gives lenders access to
the highest-intent mortgage consumers, leveraging a unique real-time rate
marketplace to deliver top-quality consumers. By integrating cost per click,
cost per lead, and cost per call products into one platform, we are able to
offer publishers improved monetization compared to our competition."

Consumers can now compare reverse mortgage options from lenders on
LendingTree.com. Like other LendingTree cost-per-lead products, lenders pay a
fee for each referral and consumers can compare options from up to five
lenders for free.

"Launching these two products is part of our ongoing revenue diversification
strategy leveraging the LendingTree brand," continued Lebda. "Our ability to
quickly and cost-effectively launch these new products is a testament to our
ongoing improvements in product and technology."
