NBCi's Aggregate Services to Become the Seventh Most-Visited on the Web*

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- In a special stockholder meeting in
San Francisco earlier today, XOOM.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:XMCM) stockholders
overwhelmingly voted to approve agreements entered into by XOOM.com and two of
its subsidiaries; NBC and affiliates of NBC; CNET; and Snap relating to the
formation of a new company to be named NBC Internet, Inc. and referred to as
NBCi.
All NBCi related transactions are expected to close by Tuesday,
November 30, 1999, at which time the new company's ticker symbol, NBCI, is
expected to begin publicly trading on The Nasdaq Stock Market(R). Each
publicly-held share of XOOM.com will convert into the right to receive one
share of NBCI Class A stock. Also on Tuesday, November 30, NBCi will hold a
press conference in New York to provide more information about the new
company.
Upon completion of the NBCi transactions, NBC is expected to own a
47.3 percent stake, XOOM.com stockholders are expected to own a 38.8 percent
stake and CNET is expected to own a 13.8 percent stake in NBCi. NBC will also
purchase two convertible debt instruments, which, if converted at a future
date, could result in majority ownership of NBCi and the ability to name a
majority of the board of directors.
In addition, as part of the transactions, NBC's President and CEO,
Bob Wright, will become Chairman of NBCi, and XOOM.com chairman, Chris Kitze,
will become Chief Executive Officer of NBCi.
NBCi will become one of the first publicly traded Internet companies
integrated with a major broadcaster and will use Snap.com as its umbrella
consumer brand, integrating broadcast, portal, community and e-commerce
services. NBCi's aggregate services will become the seventh most-visited on
the Internet.*
