leader in comparison shopping for consumer healthcare products, today
announced that in February 2007 it generated approximately 44 cents/visitor
($57,000 in revenue) on 130,000 unique visitors to www.healthpricer.com

unique visitors in January 2007. The 44 cents/visitor is a new record for
revenue per visitor, surpassing the previous high set in January 2007.
    The Company attributes its growth in per visitor revenue to increased

merchant from HealthPricer.com also improved, further indicating that
consumers are being driven to HealthPricer.com to find, compare and buy the
healthcare products they need.
    "We are very pleased to see this increase in our revenue per visitor
during February when we intentionally slowed down our traffic through reduced
advertising costs in order to test some new program features and traffic
strategies," says Michael I. Brown, President and CEO of HealthPricer
Interactive. "This business is all about knowing how to bring in visitors,
with optimal costs and maximum revenues. We are increasingly improving our
ability to predict and control our per visitor net revenues which will

profitability."
