Robertson Stephens Reiterates Buy Rating on XMCM

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 14, 1999 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Robertson Stephens
Internet Analyst Lowell J. Singer reiterated his Buy rating on Xoom.com
(NASDAQ:XMCM). Xoom.com, headquartered in San Francisco, Calif., is a
Web direct marketer.

"We are reiterating our Buy rating on Xoom.com," said Singer. "We are
increasingly confident in the future power of NBC Internet (NBCi), a
company that will be formed by the merger between Xoom.com, Snap.com
and several of NBC's Internet properties."

"Following recent meetings with company management, we believe that
NBCi will invest heavily in the development of the Snap.com brand,
adding to its value-added content, proven advertising model and
successful eCommerce strategy," said Singer. "In addition, we believe
that NBCi's access to the NBC peacock logo positions the company to be
a leading-entertainment-content site."

"We believe the stock will continue to move higher with the impending
closing of the merger, followed by further announcements of strategic
partnerships," said Singer.

Clients interested in receiving more information should contact their
salesperson at (415) 781-9700.
