Neoforma Reports Record Third Quarter Revenues; Significant Momentum at Marketplace@Novation

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BW HealthWire)--Oct. 18,, Inc. (Nasdaq:NEOF), a leading provider of business-to-business
e-commerce solutions to the global medical marketplace, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30,

For the third quarter, net revenues were $2.3 million, comprised primarily of transaction fees paid in connection with the use of the
company`s "Shop" service and live and online "Auction" services, professional service fees earned by the company`s "Services Delivery"
organization, and subscription and license fees for "Plan" services and software. The gross value of transactions on which the company
earned revenues for the third quarter was approximately $22.7 million. Third quarter gross transactions and net revenues represent record
highs for the company.

Total cash operating expenses for the third quarter were $20.3 million, lower than anticipated. Total non-cash operating expenses for the
same period were $30.2 million, lower than expected as a result of reduced charges related to the stock issued to VHA and UHC. The
net loss for the quarter was $47.5 million, or $0.46 per share, compared to a net loss of $59.6 million, or $1.02 per share, for the second
quarter of 2000. Excluding all non-cash and non-recurring charges for the periods, the net loss for the third quarter was $17.3 million, or
$0.17 per share, compared to $18.7 million, or $0.32 per share, for the second quarter.

The third quarter results represent an increase in gross value of transactions and net revenues of approximately 40% and 12%
respectively, compared to the second quarter of 2000. The following table sets forth the company`s gross transactions and net revenues by
service line for the third quarter (amounts in thousands):

Service Line Gross Transactions Net Revenues

Shop(1) $18,581 $753
Auction 3,088 510
Plan 581 581
Services Delivery 485 485
--- ---
$22,735 $2,329

(1) Shop net revenues include $255,000 in Novation catalog set-up

As of September 30, 2000, cash, cash equivalents and short and long-term investments totaled $52.5 million.

"We made solid progress in our business and achieved a number of milestones during the third quarter, including significantly increasing
Shop transaction fees by 54% from the second quarter," commented Bob Zollars, chairman, president and chief executive officer of
Neoforma. "One of the strengths of our business model is the generation of revenue from multiple sources. In addition, our ongoing focus
on reducing costs resulted in cash operating expense reductions that exceeded our expectations."

In a separate press release issued today, Neoforma discussed its progress in building Marketplace@Novation, including a significant
number of additional hospital and supplier sign-ups, as well as implementations on the first wave of hospitals. "The combination of
increased revenues and reduced expenses, as well as the progress in attracting buyers and suppliers to our marketplace, demonstrates the
company`s focus and solid execution," commented Zollars.

In the third quarter, the Auction business generated significant revenues from liquidation sales resulting from hospital closures. Unlike
traditional Auction revenues, which are primarily commissions received on the sales of consigned equipment, liquidation revenues are
generated on sales where Neoforma has taken title to the equipment. Consequently, Neoforma will display gross revenues on such sales in
the revenue section of the income statement, with the related cost of used equipment being shown in the operating expense section of the
income statement, commencing this quarter.

Separately, the company also announced that Andrew Guggenhime has been appointed chief financial officer. Mr. Guggenhime, currently
vice president of corporate development, previously led the company`s successful initial public offering as vice president for the company`s
lead underwriter, Merrill Lynch. Mr. Guggenhime replaces Frederick Ruegsegger as chief financial officer, who stepped down to pursue
other opportunities. "While we wish Fred well as he pursues new opportunities, we are exceptionally pleased to have someone as capable
as Andrew assume the responsibilities of CFO for Neoforma," commented Bob Zollars. "The combination of Andrew`s background and
his current responsibilities at Neoforma will ensure a smooth transition for the company," continued Zollars. The change will be effective
