Avenue A/Razorfish Releases First-Ever Online Media Outlook Report

Largest independent buyer of online media and search provides insight into
the trends and companies that will fuel the digital advertising industry in 2005

Avenue A/Razorfish, the largest independent interactive agency and an operating
unit of aQuantive, Inc. (NASDAQ:AQNT), today released its first-ever Online
Media Outlook Report. The report takes a detailed look into the trends and
companies that will fuel the digital advertising industry in 2005.

As the largest independent buyer of online media, including search, Avenue
A/Razorfish has a unique perspective into the multifaceted world of digital
advertising. The 2005 Online Media Outlook report provides clarity into the
online media landscape by providing insight into topics such as search engine
marketing, portals, interactive video, targeting and performance media, gaming,
blog and wireless advertising. Each section of the report includes "Five Companies
to Watch in 2005," giving insight into the businesses that will actively be engaged
in the trends leading the industry this year.

"The evolution of the digital advertising industry continued at a rapid pace
throughout 2004 and, with continued development, came added complexity and
fragmentation for advertisers," said Jeff Lanctot, Avenue A/Razorfish's vice
president of media. "2005 will mark an important year in digital media's history,
but it remains to be seen how advertisers will capitalize on the vast number of
opportunities the medium has to offer."

The report also addresses the controversies surrounding adware and desktop
advertising applications, and includes reports on the outlook for 2005 from
many of the industry's leading companies.

Throughout the report, advertisers can take away solid recommendations on
how to best evaluate and/or implement each of the advertising strategies discussed.
