   - Sale Was Reflected in Company's Previously Announced Acquisition by INS -

NEW YORK, NY - April 11, 2003 -Predictive Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq SC: PRDS) today
announced the sale of the firm's Security Intelligence Services business unit,
which includes Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs) and Open Source
Intelligence (OSI) services, to Science Applications International Corporation
(SAIC). Total revenues associated with this business unit represented
approximately $1.38 million in fiscal 2002. The closing of the sale to SAIC
which is expected to take place early in the second quarter is subject to
certain conditions, mainly the receipt of third party consents.

As consideration for the transaction, SAIC will pay Predictive Systems an
aggregate of approximately 4.19 million shares of Predictive Systems common
stock, and accordingly, Predictive Systems' common stock outstanding after the
closing of the sale to SAIC will be reduced by approximately 4.19 million
shares. As a result, Predictive Systems expects the consideration per share to
be received pursuant to the previously announced INS merger to be approximately
$0.46 per share, based on the number of shares and in the-money-options expected
to be outstanding on the closing date of the INS merger. If the sale to SAIC
does not close for any reason, however, the 4.19 million shares will remain
outstanding and will be required to be included in the per share INS merger
consideration calculation resulting in a decrease in the estimated price per
share of the INS merger to approximately $0.42 per share. Furthermore, as
previously disclosed, the consideration to be received by stockholders in the
INS transaction is subject to additional adjustment based on Predictive Systems'
net assets at closing.

Predictive Systems also announced the resignation of Shawn Kreloff, the
company's Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development who is leaving
to pursue other interests. Predictive Systems thanks Mr. Kreloff for his
dedicated service.
