Dec 10, 2007, 00:00 ET from Overstock.com

    SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Overstock.com, Inc.
 (Nasdaq:   OSTK) Chairman and CEO Dr. Patrick Byrne appeared on CNBC's
 Closing Bell this past Friday and provided an update on the Company's
 current quarter. "We are having a pretty nice Christmas," he said during
 the interview where he mentioned that the company's gross bookings had
 increased thus far during Q4 by approximately 10% over last year's Q4 due
 to an increase in the order size of the average transaction.
     Byrne also suggested that the company's gross margins would be lower
 than they have been in recent quarters due to aggressive sales promotions
 and discounting. Byrne said that he expects Q4 GAAP net income to be
 between -1% and +1% of revenue and EBITDA to be between $5 and $10 million.
 He said that he believes the company will generate $50 to $60 million in
 operating cash flows in Q4 and that the company plans to expand the
 business internationally. "Next year we have an initiative to open up
 Canada and a couple countries in Europe."
