February 22, 2011 - SAN JOSE, CA

Bridge Capital Holdings (NASDAQ: BBNK), whose subsidiary is Bridge Bank, National Association, a full service professional business bank headquartered in Silicon Valley, announced today it has provided an $8.475 million credit facility to Inuvo. The two-year line of credit consists of an $8 million revolving credit and a $475 thousand term credit. The new credit replaces the company's $5 million revolving credit facility with another bank.

"This new facility increases the capacity from our former banking facility," said Wally Ruiz, Inuvo's Chief Financial Officer. "It provides greater flexibility and reduces our cost of capital. Bridge Bank has a strong understanding of our business and suggested creative ways to increase availability and effective use of working capital."

The new credit facility will be used primarily to satisfy working capital needs and is expected to reduce the company's effective cost of capital by approximately 200 basis points annually, as compared to the prior facility. Complete details related to the facility and a copy of the agreement will be set forth in the company's Form 8-K to be filed with the SEC. As part of the new credit agreement, the company will use Bridge Bank's cash management services for its operating needs.

Paul Gibson, Senior Vice President and Market Manager of Bridge Bank's East Coast Region, also commented on the new credit facility, "Bridge Bank is excited for the opportunity to provide a customized financing solution to meet Inuvo's working capital needs."
