PIRANHA ANNOUNCES SALE OF PIRANHA BYTE COMPRESSION TECHNOLOGY TO DDB
WORLDWIDE, USA'S LARGEST AGENCY NETWORK

Piranha's Impact Solutions Subsidiary Also Announces Sale of Piranha
Byte to Messner Vetere Berger McNamee Schmetterer/EURO RSCG

NEW YORK..JUNE 28, 2000..Piranha, Inc. (OTC BB: BYTE), an innovator
in data compression solutions, today announced the sale of Piranha
Byte, a data compression tool for the imaging, publishing and
printing industries, to DDB Worldwide, one of the world's leading
advertising agencies with 206 offices in 98 countries around the
globe.

DDB Worldwide is has the largest agency network in the U.S. and the
third largest in the world with billings of $15.4 billion last year.

Impact Solutions, Inc., a Piranha subsidiary, also announced the sale
of Piranha Byte to Messner Vetere Berger McNamee Schmetterer/EURO
RSCG, the youngest billion-dollar agency in the industry since its
inception in 1986.

Piranha Byte's compression technology enables DDB Worldwide and MVBMS
to improve the speed, bandwidth and time normally associated with its
digital file transfers. Piranha Byte reduces data transfer time and
storage requirements and provides point-to-multipoint communications,
compressing files at least eight times smaller than their original
size.

"Piranha Byte will improve our business by eliminating the need for
expensive disks and delivery services," said Michael Guzman, director
of Print Services for DDB Worldwide Communications Group, Inc. "By
compressing files, DDB Worldwide can get them to any place in the
world in minutes rather than days. When you multiply the amount of
ads that agencies produce on a yearly basis by those savings, it
could save hundreds of thousands of dollars in material and delivery
costs."

"The fast-changing global economy forces leading advertising agencies
to search for cutting-edge solutions in the digital world, said Larry
E. Greybill, president of Impact Solutions. "DDB Worldwide recognizes
the efficiencies that Piranha Byte brings to digital workflows as
well as the reduction of costs in servicing clients around the globe."

Piranha Byte is available from Impact Solutions, Piranha Inc.'s sales
and marketing subsidiary that is focused on the professional imaging
and publishing industries, and Zideo.com, another Piranha subsidiary
that specializes in internet and entertainment solutions.
