Based on subscriber acquisition initiatives and holiday sales, Napster hopes to achieve strong revenue growth in the third quarter of fiscal 2005 and reiterated its guidance for revenues of approximately $11 million.

Napster created the first on-line music service, the first combination subscription and download service and the first portable subscription service. We are proud today to continue Napster’s tradition of innovation by becoming the first pure-play public digital music company in the nation, stated Chris Gorog, chairman and CEO of Napster.

Napster completed the sale of its Roxio consumer software division to Sonic Solutions on December 17. With the cash and stock proceeds of that sale, Napster closed the calendar year with a net balance of cash and investments, including its shares in Sonic Solutions, of more than $130 million.
