     Safe Harbor Statement:
     Certain statements in this news release, including statements that include
 words such as "expects," "believes" or other future-oriented statements, are
 forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements involve risks and
 uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from anticipated
 results. In particular, factors that could cause Autoweb not to reach
 profitability in 2001 include, but are not limited to: our ability to attract
 consumers through existing portal relationships; the combined viability of
 current and new car buying processes on our site; consumer acceptance of
 online car buying and our ability to continue to reduce expenses without
 comparable or greater revenue reductions; and the effect of the restructuring
 of certain marketing agreements; the failure to realize anticipated synergies
 related to the proposed merger with Autobytel.com, failure to obtain required
 stockholder or regulatory approvals or the merger not closing for any other
 reason, failure of the combined company to retain and hire key employees, and
 difficulties in successfully integrating the parties' businesses and
 technologies.  Other risks and uncertainties include the fact that the Company
 received a Nasdaq Staff Determination letter on March 1, 2001, indicating that
 the Company has failed to comply with the minimum bid price requirement for
 continued listing, and is subject to delisting from the Nasdaq National
 Market; changes in competitive behavior or market forces; uncertainties
 regarding response from the vehicle manufacturers; changes in the legal or
 regulatory environment, changes or lack of changes in consumer preferences
 over time, technological challenges and an inability to forecast future
 traffic and transactions. Further information on risk factors that could
 affect results is detailed in Autoweb's filings with the Securities and
 Exchange Commission, including its Registration Statement on Form S-1 (No.
 333-71177) and its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2000, filed
 with the Securities and Exchanges Commission, including (without limitation)
 under the captions, "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis
 of Financial Condition and Results of Operations."  Additional information
 which is set forth in those sections in Autoweb's Annual Report on Form 10-K
 for the year ended December 31, 2000.
