The transaction is expected to be completed during the fourth quarter of 2003.

MarketWatch.com will incorporate Pinnacor's broad set of financial applications and extensive customization capabilities. Pinnacor's solutions encompass market data and investment-analysis tools for financial services firms, as well as business information, portal solutions, and messaging services for enterprise clients and wireless carriers. At closing, it is expected that Pinnacor will bring several hundred new customers to MarketWatch.com.
