SAN FRANCISCO, October 9, 2001 /PRNewswire/ -- Netcentives Inc. (OTC NCNT) announced today that it has filed a voluntary petition for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code together with its subsidiaries, Post Communications, Inc., and MaxMiles. Netcentives intends to maintain operation of all existing loyalty programs and services, including its ClickRewards(R), Delta SkyMiles Shopping, and United MileagePlus Shopping rewards networks, the Email Marketing Group and other related services while it seeks to sell business assets in an auction expected to occur in November.
"The filing is an important step in protecting the value of our loyalty and email business operations and the underlying intellectual property, patents and source code as we seek to sell the company's business operations," stated Eric Larsen, chief executive officer of Netcentives. "The asset auction is a continuation of a restructuring plan announced earlier this year in which we are now divesting assets and reviewing payables under the guidance of the court to prioritize liabilities and preserve cash flow for creditors and, potentially, shareholders."
The Company also announced that it had signed a letter of intent to sell its Email Marketing Group, formerly Post Communications, to Plum Acquisition Corp., a company headed by Post founder Hans Peter Brondmo. The proposed transaction is subject to competitive bids and bankruptcy court approval.
In a related announcement, Netcentives disclosed that it had signed a multi-million dollar patent licensing agreement with a leading Internet media company. This agreement enables the licensee to operate the online portion of its rewards programs under U.S. Patents No. 5,774,870 and No. 6,009,412. These patents demonstrate the value of the Netcentives' intellectual property with regard to the design and implementation of Internet-based rewards and recognition systems.
Netcentives announced it has sufficient cash on hand to finance its operations through auction of its assets, including supporting the company's post-petition trade and employee obligations. The Company has retained the law firm of Binder & Malter to represent it in bankruptcy proceedings.

About Specimen Certificates
Specimen Certificates are actual certificates that have never been issued. They were usually kept by the printers in their permanent archives as their only example of a particular certificate. Sometimes you will see a hand stamp on the certificate that says "Do not remove from file".
Specimens were also used to show prospective clients different types of certificate designs that were available. Specimen certificates are usually much scarcer than issued certificates. In fact, many times they are the only way to get a certificate for a particular company because the issued certificates were redeemed and destroyed. In a few instances, Specimen certificates were made for a company but were never used because a different design was chosen by the company.
These certificates are normally stamped "Specimen" or they have small holes spelling the word specimen. Most of the time they don't have a serial number, or they have a serial number of 00000. This is an exciting sector of the hobby that has grown in popularity over the past several years.
