McAfee.com stated that, although the special committee of its board of directors previously recommended that McAfee.com stockholders accept the Network Associates offer, which was subsequently withdrawn, the special committee will reassess the proposed Network Associates offer, once the exchange offer materials are filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, in view of the current and prospective business outlook for McAfee.com and Network Associates. Accordingly, McAfee.com stockholders are urged to take no action at this time and await the recommendation of the special committee and the board of directors of McAfee.com. The special committee and the board of directors of McAfee.com will make their recommendation with respect to the Network Associates offer no later than 10 business days from the date that Network Associates commences the offer.
