ALTON, England --Aug. 12, 1999-- TownPagesNet.com plc (AMEX:TPN), a provider of Internet-based on-line information services in the UK, today announced the appointment of Richard Walker as Chief Financial Officer. A Chartered Accountant since 1990, Walker rose to Senior Manager at Baker Tilly, one of the UK's top accountancy firms. In 1997 he was appointed Acting Managing Director at Colourweb (UK), the St. Helens-based printing firm.

Andrew Lyndon-Skeggs, TownPages' Managing Director, commented: ``We are delighted to have Richard on board. Following our successful IPO and listing on the American Stock Exchange this past May, we knew the time had come to move our financial operations to a higher level. Our major plans for the future require an in-house, dedicated financial team. Richard's financial acumen will play a vital role in helping us achieve our target of rolling out approximately 3,450 online information kiosks across Britain within the next three years.''

``In the past three weeks, we have announced the key acquisition of WWW.CO.UK -www.cinemas-online.com and two additional planned acqusitions, namely Bowden Publishing, the publishers of the Local Authority & Public Service Buyers Guide (www.buyersguide.co.uk) and Morbria Limited (www.graphicpalette.co.uk), which specialises in the design of websites and advertising services.''

``Working for TownPages is a tremendous opportunity,'' commented Richard Walker. ``This is a dynamic and innovative company, pioneering new products in the Internet environment. I am impressed by the vision TownPages brings to the Internet market and the quality of its Board of Directors. Initially, I will determine what additional control systems need to be put in place, and will then look to recruit more staff and build a full financial department to handle our projected growth.''
