MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, April 24, 2002 Mr. Paul Timoteo, President and
CFO of CCC Internet Solutions Inc. “CCC” (CDNX: CIS 10,501,952 shares
outstanding) is pleased to announce that 43r.ca has signed its second “Vendor
Agreement” with ALLSTATE Insurance “ALLSTATE”. The agreement is to remain
in full force and effect indefinitely with either party having the right to terminate at
any time providing 30 days written notice.
“In less than two weeks we have signed our second
major agreement. ALLSTATE is a very big win for 43r.ca and CCC.” Reports Paul
Timoteo. “43r.ca has clearly staked out its niche in the Insurance industry.
Combined, ING and ALLSTATE represent approximately 20% of 43r.ca’s target marketplace.”
As disclosed on April 17, 2002, 43r is currently generating
revenue from multiple users. Presently Management is negotiating several additional Vendor
Agreements that we anticipate concluding within the coming weeks and months ahead. Upon
completion of such negotiations, CCC will then look to provide revenue guidance to our
shareholders as and when available.
For competitive reasons, financial terms of the agreement
were not disclosed, however it is projected that revenue from 43r.ca will be materially significant to CCC.
