10 EMUSIC.COM ANNOUNCES THIRD-QUARTER FINANCIAL RESULTS
 
 
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- April 18, 2001 -- EMusic.com Inc. (Nasdaq:
EMUS), the Internet's leading downloadable music subscription service,
today reported its financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended
March 31, 2001.
 
EMusic's revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2001, were $4.3
million, a 36-percent increase compared with combined EMusic.com and
Tunes.com revenues of $3.2 million for the quarter ended March 31,
2000. Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2000 were $4.7
million. Music revenues increased to $2.2 million for the quarter ended
March 31, 2001 compared with $450,000 and $1.7 million for the quarters
ended March 31, 2000 and December 31, 2000, respectively. Advertising
revenues were $2.0 million for the quarter, a 32-percent decrease
compared with the preceding quarter -- reflecting the continued decline
in online advertising rates and sell through.
 
The pro forma net loss for the fiscal third quarter ended March 31,
2001, was $5.3 million or $0.13 per share compared with a pro forma net
loss of $13.3 million or $0.37 per share in the same quarter of the
prior year and $8.7 million or $0.21 per share for the quarter ended
December 31, 2000. Pro forma net losses exclude non-cash charges
related to stock compensation, the amortization of intangible assets,
impairment and restructuring charges and gain on the sale of IUMA.
Including these charges net losses for the quarters ended March 31, 2001
and 2000 and December 31, 2000 were $6.1 million or $0.15 per share,
$22.5 million or $0.62 per share and $191.0 million or $4.65 per share.
As of March 31, 2001, the company's cash and short-term investments
totaled approximately $10.9 million.
 
In January 2001, EMusic announced a corporate reorganization aimed at
reducing expenses and focusing the company on its two core sources of
revenue -- advertising and promotional revenue through RollingStone.com,
and downloadable music sales through EMusic.com. As a result of these
actions the Company recorded a restructuring charge in the quarter ended
March 31, 2001 of approximately $1.3 million that primarily included
charges related to severance, lease terminations and other contract
cancellations.
 
Proposed Acquisition by Universal Music Group
 
On April 9, 2001, EMusic and Universal Music Group announced that they
had entered into a definitive merger agreement. Under this agreement,
Universal Music Group will commence a cash tender offer to acquire all
of EMusic's outstanding shares at a price of $0.57 per share. Any shares
not purchased in the tender offer will be converted into the same cash
price in a subsequent merger.
 
The tender offer will commence on or prior to April 20, 2001 and will be
made only by an offer to purchase and other offering and solicitation
documents, copies of which will be filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC) and mailed to EMusic stockholders.
 
The obligation of Universal to complete the tender offer will be
conditioned on a minimum tender of shares representing a majority of
EMusic's fully diluted shares. In addition, the offer will be
conditioned on EMusic having cash and marketable securities (after
deduction for estimated transaction costs) of a minimum of $5 million on
April 30, 2001, reducing by no more than approximately $48,000 for each
day thereafter until the offer closes. Either party can terminate the
agreement if the offer is not completed by June 25, 2001.
 
The transaction is subject to other customary conditions. It is not
subject to the waiting period requirements of the Hart-Scott-Rodino
Antitrust Improvement Act of 1976.

aggregate of approximately 17 percent of the company's outstanding
shares have each individually agreed to tender their shares. The EMusic

stockholders," said Gene Hoffman, EMusic president and CEO. "The
addition of EMusic and RollingStone.com to Universal Music Group has
some very exciting potential for online music fans."
 
The tender offer will commence on or prior to April 20, 2001 and will be
made only by an offer to purchase and other offering and solicitation
documents, copies of which will be filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC) and mailed to EMusic stockholders.

EMUSIC.COM ANNOUNCES LETTER OF INTENT FOR ACQUISITION OF THE COMPANY
Company Announces Preliminary Financial Results for March Quarter;
Expects to Receive Nasdaq De-Listing Notice
 
 
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- April 5, 2001 -- EMusic.com Inc. (Nasdaq: EMUS),
 
the Internet's leading downloadable music subscription service, today
announced that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent to be
acquired by a major publicly-held media company in a cash transaction.
The proposed acquisition price is $0.57 per fully diluted share.
 
Completion of the transaction is subject to customary conditions,
including satisfactory completion of due diligence reviews, the
negotiation and execution of definitive agreements, Board approvals and
satisfaction of all regulatory requirements. There can be no assurance
that the parties will finalize or execute such definitive agreements,
that the terms of such agreements may not be materially different than
set forth in the letter of intent or that if definitive agreements are
executed, the transaction will be consummated.
 
As part of the letter of intent, EMusic has agreed to a short period of
exclusive negotiations during which it will not engage in discussions
regarding an acquisition of the Company with any other party. EMusic
has no current plans to discuss additional details regarding these
negotiations until a final outcome has been reached.
 
Preliminary Financial Results for the Third Quarter
 
EMusic also announced that it expects to report revenues for the quarter
 
ended March 31, 2001 of approximately $4.2 million. The company expects
 
to report music revenues for the quarter of approximately $2.2 million,
up from $1.7 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2001. EMusic
finished the quarter with over 10,000 active paying subscribers to its
MP3 music service, up from 4,500 at the end of the December quarter --
and higher than the 8,000 originally anticipated by the company at the
time of its last earnings call. Active paying subscribers do not
include any subscribers in trial or promotional programs. EMusic
expects to report advertising revenues of approximately $2.0 million,
down from $3.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2001 as the
company continued to experience the impact of the depressed online
advertising market. EMusic had approximately $10.9 million in cash and
short-term investments as of March 31, 2001.
 
"Despite the obviously challenging business environment, we are
extremely pleased with the continued strong growth of our downloadable
music subscription service," said Gene Hoffman, EMusic president and
CEO. "With our EMusic.com and RollingStone.com Web sites, our company
has taken a recognized leadership position in online music, a market
that continues to generate great excitement and interest among both
vendors and consumers alike."
 
Nasdaq Listing
 
EMusic also reported that it expects to receive a Nasdaq Staff
Determination indicating that it has failed to comply with the minimum
bid price requirement for continued listing set forth in Marketplace
Rule 4450(a)(5) and that its securities are, therefore, subject to
de-listing from The Nasdaq National Market. Upon receipt of such
letter, EMusic intends to request a hearing before the Nasdaq Listing
Qualifications Panel to review the Staff Determination, and there can be no assurance that the Panel will grant the Company's request for continued listing. Under Nasdaq's rules, the Company's common stock will continue to trade on The Nasdaq National Market pending the outcome of the hearing.

EMUSIC LAUNCHES AUTOMATED SOFTWARE
TO EFFECTIVELY MONITOR THE NAPSTER NETWORK
System Protects the Interests of EMusic, its Label Partners & Artists
March 22, 2001 -- EMusic.com Inc. (Nasdaq:
EMUS), the Internet's leading seller of downloadable music, today
announced that it has launched proprietary monitoring software that
allows the company to continually search the Napster network for EMusic
MP3s being made available on Napster without permission. The software
also automatically reports these infringing track names to Napster Inc.
for filtering.
 
To date, EMusic has notified Napster Inc. of over 75,000 different
filenames representing 35,000 copyrighted songs. According to the U.S.
District court's recent injunction, Napster is required to filter and
block access to these files on their system within 72 hours.
 
"By identifying our licensed tracks by their unique MD5 sums instead of
their titles, we can now effectively find and notify Napster of
infringing files on their network -- including misspellings and other
variants," said Gene Hoffman, EMusic president & CEO. "A small amount
of unauthorized music will always be available to those who seek it out,
but we are confident that recent legal opinions and automated technology
such as this will significantly curtail the large-scale, flagrant
file-sharing that has been rampant for the past year."

EMUSIC OFFERS RARE, EARLY RECORDINGS
OF ELVIS PRESLEY & JOHNNY CASH IN MP3
 
EMusic Unlocks the Vault to the Legendary 'Louisiana Hayride' Radio
Program
 
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- March 21, 2001 -- EMusic.com Inc. (Nasdaq:
EMUS), the Internet's leading MP3 music service, today announced that
avid music fans, historians and collectors now have easy access to rare,
seminal recordings from the 'Louisiana Hayride', an influential live
music radio program dating back to 1948 that featured some of the
earliest public performances of rock & roll, country and rockabilly
pioneers -- including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, June Carter, Werley
Fairburn and Tibby Edwards.
 
EMusic is offering these recordings inexpensively and conveniently in
the MP3 format at http://www.emusic.com/features/hayride/ . Every two
weeks, the Web site will be updated to feature new artists and titles
from the legendary Hayride archives. Besides the classic music
recordings, EMusic also features extremely rare photographs from the
Hayride, including a collection of Elvis images from 1954 and historical
photos of Shreveport radio station KWKH.
 
"The release of these historic recordings highlights one of the major
benefits of MP3 distribution for music fans," said Ray Farrell, EMusic's
director of Content Acquisition and Management. "This vintage material
has been unavailable for years because issuing it on CD has simply not
been cost effective. The efficiencies of downloadable music allow us to
blow off the dust and make it easily accessible. We're pleased to be
able to provide our EMusic Unlimited members with exclusive access to
these gems from the birth of rock & roll."
 
About EMusic Unlimited - the Internet's Leading MP3 Music Service
 
EMusic is now offering a free 30-day trial to EMusic Unlimited, its
digital music subscription service at
http://www.emusic.com/subscription/ . Designed for the avid music fan,
EMusic Unlimited allows members to download as much music as they desire
from EMusic's digital collection of over 160,000 MP3s for one low

 03 EMUSIC FILES COMPLAINT AGAINST NAPSTER INC.
 
Downloadable Music Company also asks that Users Blocked by Napster
for Sharing EMusic Songs be Reinstated
 
 
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- March 7, 2001 -- EMusic.com Inc. (Nasdaq: EMUS),
the Internet's leading seller of downloadable music, today announced
that it has filed a complaint against Napster Inc. for contributory and
vicarious copyright infringement and unfair competition. The complaint
was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District
of California in San Francisco.
 
"For over six months, Napster Inc. has flatly rejected our requests to
filter out and effectively block EMusic tracks from being traded on
their system without our permission," said Gene Hoffman, EMusic
president and CEO. "Napster has stated clearly to us and to the courts
that they believed such a system was technically impossible.
 
"In light of this position, Napster's ability to quickly implement such
a filtering system over this past weekend shows the company's true
motive -- to unfairly build a business upon the copyrighted works of
others.
 
"We welcome the injunction that the court has issued against Napster.
It is a major step towards leveling the playing field for legitimate
downloadable music companies," Hoffman said.
 
EMusic represents thousands of artists and hundreds of independent
labels by legitimately licensing their digital music copyrights and
selling this music to consumers conveniently and inexpensively in the
downloadable MP3 format. The company offers a legitimate alternative to
Napster through EMusic Unlimited, a first-of-its-kind music subscription
service that offers music fans with unlimited to access to more than
160,000 high-quality MP3s for as little as $9.99 per month.
 
EMusic Asks Napster to Reinstate Blocked Users
 
EMusic also announced today that it has requested that Napster Inc.
reinstate any Napster users that had their accounts terminated for
trading EMusic songs. In November 2000 at Napster's insistence, EMusic
started notifying Napster of users that were distributing EMusic tracks
without permission. At the time, Napster suggested that EMusic's only
recourse was to have these users banned completely from the system.
 
"Today's actions should make it clear that EMusic bears no malice
towards Napster's users," Hoffman said. "We understand and support
their passion for downloadable MP3 music."

responsibilities of MP3 users, go to

-- sharing tapes of our own music and of music we loved," says Apples in
stereo singer/songwriter/guitarist Robert Schneider. "The Internet is
an expansion and extension of this culture. Through companies like
EMusic, and via the Internet in general, fans can get access to
worthwhile recordings that might not otherwise be released.
 
"I myself am interested in the unreleased recordings of my favorite
bands and I can appreciate that our fans would be interested in ours as
well. This recording from our show in Chicago is an unusual live
recording for us. You can actually hear the vocals very well over all
the noise. This is the first time a live recording of ours has
accomplished this."
 
'The Donnas Turn 21' in MP3 (Lookout! Records)
 
Having first formed in Palo Alto, California as eighth graders in 1992,
this popular all-female garage rock quartet is all grown up now. At
http://www.emusic.com/artists/14308, EMusic offers The Donnas' four
Lookout! albums -- including their latest release, 'Turn 21'. EMusic is
also featuring a free exclusive bonus MP3 track of The Donnas covering
the Alice Cooper anthem, "School's Out (for Summer)".
 
In addition, The Donnas have selected their favorite 100 downloadable
songs on EMusic and posted them at
http://www.emusic.com/subscription/welcome/36519.html. Their list
includes MP3s from At The Drive-In, Bad Brains, Big Star, Bauhaus,
Bratmobile, Patsy Cline, George Clinton, The Fall, The Go-Betweens,
Green Day, Iggy & The Stooges, International Noise Conspiracy, L7,
Operation Ivy, Sleater-Kinney, Tricky, and many others. The Donnas have
teamed up with Lookout! and EMusic to offer fans a special 30-day,
no-risk opportunity to download these songs and more from EMusic
Unlimited, the one-of-a-kind MP3 download service at
http://www.emusic.com/promo/thedonnas/
