IRVINE, Calif. -- July 3, 2013

Autobytel Inc. (Nasdaq: ABTL), a leading provider of online consumer leads and
marketing resources for the automotive industry, today announced that Proposal
3 has been approved by the company’s stockholders at the reconvened Annual
Meeting held today. The Annual Meeting, originally convened on June 20, 2013,
was adjourned to today to allow stockholders additional time to vote on
Proposal 3.

Proposal 3 approves an amendment to the company’s certificate of incorporation
to clarify the board of directors’ authority to fix the voting rights of any
series of preferred stock created and issued pursuant to the provisions of the
company’s certificate of incorporation authorizing the creation and issuance
of one or more series of preferred stock.

The company previously reported that the following proposals were also
approved by stockholders at the Annual Meeting:

  *Proposal 1: The reelection of Mr. Michael J. Fuchs and Ms. Janet Thompson
    as Class III directors of Autobytel’s board of directors.
  *Proposal 2: An amendment of Autobytel’s certificate of incorporation to
    reduce the number of authorized shares of common stock to 55,000,000.
  *Proposal 4: An amendment of Autobytel’s certificate of incorporation to
    eliminate provisions establishing the powers, designations, preferences
    and rights for series A, B and C Preferred Stock.
  *Proposal 5: An advisory vote on the compensation of Autobytel’s named
    executive officers.
  *Proposal 6: A two-year frequency on advisory votes on the compensation of
    Autobytel’s named executive officers. In light of this advisory vote, the
    board of directors determined that it will include a stockholder vote on
    the compensation of executives every two years until the next required
    vote on the frequency of stockholder advisory votes on the compensation of
    executives, or the board of directors determines that a different
    frequency for that vote is in the best interests of the company and its
    stockholders.
  *Proposal 7: The appointment of Moss Adams LLP as Autobytel’s independent
    registered public accounting firm for 2013 was ratified.
