Shareholders Charge B&N.com

With Unfair Dealings

NEW YORK, NY/11/19/03—Shareholders of Barnes & Noble.com and Barnes & Noble have filed about a dozen class action lawsuits against the companies, seeking to block Barnes & Noble’s move to buy the online store for $2.50 per share.

The suit filed in Delaware, accuses Barnes & Noble of unfair pricing and dealing from its own interests at the expense of the shareholders. Barnes & Noble.com claims the lawsuits have no merit.

An independent committee appointed by B&N.com will evaluate the offer.
