InterCept Also Settles Proxy Contest with JANA Partners

ATLANTA, GA (June 11, 2004) – InterCept, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICPT), a leading provider of technology products and services for financial institutions, today announced that it will explore strategic alternatives to enhance shareholder value, including a possible sale of the company, and has retained Jefferies & Company, Inc. as its financial advisor to assist the company in doing so. In addition, InterCept and JANA Partners LLC announced today that they have agreed to settle their proxy contest and pending litigation and to jointly support a panel of director nominees for election at the 2004 annual meeting of InterCept shareholders.

According to John W. Collins, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of InterCept, “Based on recent strong levels of interest from prospective purchasers and feedback provided by some of our shareholders, we believe that an exploration of strategic alternatives at this time is in the best interest of the company. To avoid the distraction of a proxy fight and improve our ability to achieve maximum value for our shareholders, we have settled our dispute with JANA. We look forward to working with JANA to enhance value for all InterCept shareholders.”

InterCept and JANA have agreed that, on or before June 24, 2004, the size of the InterCept Board will be increased from six to nine members, and that Kevin J. Lynch and Marc Weisman, two nominees proposed by JANA, will be elected to fill the newly-created Class II and III director seats and Robert Finzi of Sprout Group will be offered the newly-created Class I board seat. InterCept and JANA also have agreed to dismiss the litigation pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division, relating to the conduct of the 2004 annual meeting, and that InterCept will reimburse JANA for up to $750,000 of its expenses if the shareholders approve a sale of the company. InterCept also agreed to hold its 2005 annual meeting, if necessary, not later than April 15, 2005.

According to Barry S. Rosenstein, managing member of JANA Partners, “InterCept’s board of directors has been responsive to our proposal to explore strategic alternatives and to allow JANA’s representatives to have a role in the InterCept boardroom. We are eager to work with the InterCept board to maximize shareholder value.”

InterCept also announced that at the annual meeting scheduled for June 24, 2004, management, with the support of JANA, intends to convene and then adjourn the

annual meeting until September 14, 2004. “Due to the possibility that we may be convening a shareholders meeting in the coming months to approve a sale, business combination or other strategic transaction, we have decided to postpone our annual meeting in order to avoid the time and expense associated with perhaps conducting two shareholder meetings in close proximity to one another,” noted Collins. At the 2004 annual meeting, the InterCept board and JANA will jointly support the election of Mr. Finzi or another independent nominee as a Class I director, Mr. Lynch as a Class II director and John W. Collins, Arthur G. Weiss and Marc Weisman as Class III directors.
