PowerAgent alive, not yet secure

In a Sept. 15 meeting to resolve a funding crisis, PowerAgent's board and
investor group tentatively agreed to continue financing the venture, though 
the company's fate isn't yet secure, said its president, David Carlick.
"The board and investors have instructed me that we have an agreement in
principle to fund the company on an aggressive basis, which is at the high 
of the numbers we've been talking about," said Mr. Carlick. In an earlier 
Mr. Carlick told Advertising Age the company was seeking a third round of 
venture financing for $20 million, in accordance with its business plan.

Mr. Carlick surprised industry observers by appealing to a Silicon Valley
investors conference last week for urgent investment at "distressed prices" 

after the original investment team balked at the new round of funding.
The company, which aims to target ads to consumers who sign up for special 
promotions, publicly debuted only five weeks ago and is a month away from
launching commercial service.
