NEW JERSEY–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–December 5, 2002–uDate.com, Inc. (OTCBB: UDAT), the global online personals group providing dating and matchmaking services through its two websites http://www.udate.com and http://www.kiss.com, today announced an exclusive co-branded relationship with YupiMSN, a leading Spanish-language Internet network and a Microsoft and TELMEX company. Under the terms of the multi-year deal, uDate will provide YupiMSN consumers with dating services using its new application under the umbrella of the co-branded site. uDate’s new application has been in development since February 2002, and will offer a significant improvement in the user experience compared to the existing uDate.com site and its competitors.

The potential value over the term of this deal is estimated at over US$5 million. The co-branded site, soon to be unveiled, will be delivered to over 25 million YupiMSN and Hotmail users in the U.S. and Latin America completely in Spanish. The jointly agreed upon brand name for this site remains to be announced.

“YupiMSN’s relationship with uDate further expands and diversifies our product offering, enhancing our already best-in-class consumer experience,” said Marlena Delgado, Chief Operating Officer, YupiMSN. “uDate has proven itself to be a major player in the dating market and has developed a new application that represents a significant step forward compared to existing services. Given the flexibility and improved user experience of this new application, uDate was a natural choice to work with to create a co-branded Spanish-language service”.

Martin Clifford, uDate’s Chief Operating Officer, commented “I am very excited about announcing our first major relationship with the new application and especially pleased that we will be rolling out the product in a non-English-speaking market. We have developed a tremendous working relationship with the Yupi team and I am looking forward to sharing the success of the new application with them.”
