ANZ today announced it would not be proceeding with its investment in
eisa, following the announcement that eisa's planned acquisition of
Ozemail would not occur.

ANZ Head of Corporate Financial Services, Mr Roger Davis said it was
disappointing that eisa was unable to complete the deal with Ozemail,
however it was no longer in the interests of shareholders for ANZ to
proceed with the investment in eisa.

"ANZ will continue to pursue e-Commerce opportunities that contribute
to our strategy of swiftly building a leading e-Commerce presence and
that add value for our shareholders," he said.
