                           LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT


         THIS LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT (this "Agreement") dated October 21,
1999 between SILICON VALLEY BANK ("Bank") and ValueClick, Inc. ("Borrower"),
provides the terms on which Bank will lend to Borrower and Borrower will repay
Bank. The parties agree as follows:


         Accounting terms not defined in this Agreement will be construed
following GAAP. Calculations and determinations must be made following GAAP. The
term "financial statements" includes the notes and schedules. The terms
"including" and "includes" always mean "including (or includes) without
limitation" in this or any Loan Document. Capitalized terms in this Agreement
shall have the meanings set forth in Section 13.


2.1      ADVANCES. Borrower will pay Bank the unpaid principal amount of all
Advances and interest on the unpaid principal amount of the Advances in
accordance with terms hereof.


         (a) Bank will make Advances from time to time in an amount outstanding
at any one time not exceeding the Committed Revolving Line or the Borrowing
Base, whichever is less. Amounts borrowed under this Section may be repaid and
reborrowed during the term of this Agreement.

         (b) To obtain an Advance, Borrower must notify Bank by facsimile or
telephone by 3:00 p.m. Pacific time on the Business Day the Advance is to be
made. Borrower must promptly confirm the notification by delivering to Bank the
Payment/Advance Form attached as Exhibit B. Bank will credit Advances to
Borrower's deposit account Account Number [________________]. Bank may make
Advances under this Agreement based on instructions from a Responsible Officer
or his or her designee or without instructions if the Advances are necessary to
meet Obligations which have become due. Bank may rely on any telephone notice
given by a person whom Bank believes is a Responsible Officer or designee.
Borrower will indemnify Bank for any loss Bank suffers due to that reliance.

         (c) The Committed Revolving Line terminates on the Revolving Maturity
Date, when all Advances are immediately payable.

the lesser of either (i) the Committed Revolving Line or (ii) the Borrowing
Base, Borrower must immediately pay in cash to Bank the excess.


         (a) Interest Rate. Advances accrue interest on the outstanding
principal balance at a per annum rate one (1.0) percentage point above the
Prime Rate. After the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of
Default, Obligations accrue interest at five (5.0) percent above the rate
effective immediately before the occurrence of such Event of Default. The
interest rate increases or decreases when the Prime Rate changes. Interest is
computed on a 360 day year for the actual number of days elapsed.

         (b) Payments. Interest is payable on the first day of each month. Bank
may debit any of Borrower's deposit accounts including Account Number

Bank. Bank will notify Borrower when it debits Borrower's accounts. These debits
are not a set-off. Payments received after 12:00 noon Pacific time are
considered received at the opening of business on the next Business Day. When a
payment is due on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment is due the next
Business Day and additional fees or interest accrue.

         (a) Facility Fee. A fully earned, non-refundable facility fee of
$12,500 due on the Closing Date (Bank acknowledges receipt of $12,500 from
Borrower on July 12, 1999 as payment in full of the facility fee due to Bank
hereunder); and

         (b) Bank Expenses. All Bank Expenses (including reasonable attorneys'
fees and expenses) incurred through and after the Closing Date when due.

         (c) Unused Line Fee. An Unused Line Fee, in addition to all interest
and other fees payable hereunder. The amount of the Unused Line Fee shall be
0.50% per annum multiplied by an amount equal to the Committed Revolving Amount
minus the average daily balance of the outstanding Advances. The Unused Line Fee
shall be computed and paid quarterly, in arrears, and shall be due on the last
day of each fiscal quarter. Anything contained in the foregoing to the contrary
notwithstanding, during each quarter in which Borrower maintains Permitted
Investments in investment vehicles provided to Borrower by Bank in an average
aggregate amount of $15,000,000 or more, payment of the entire amount of any
Unused Line Fee otherwise due for such quarter in accordance with the foregoing
shall be waived by Bank, and no such fee shall be payable with respect to such

representations and warranties relate solely to an earlier date) Borrower
represents and warrants as follows:

5.1      DUE ORGANIZATION AND AUTHORIZATION. Borrower and each Subsidiary is
duly existing and in good standing in its state of formation and qualified
and licensed to do business in, and in good standing in, any state in which
the conduct of its business or its ownership of property requires that it be
qualified except where the failure to do so could not reasonably be expected
to cause a Material Adverse Change.

         The execution, delivery and performance of the Loan Documents have been
duly authorized, and do not conflict with Borrower's formations documents, nor
constitute an event of


default under any material agreement by which Borrower is bound. Borrower is not
in default under any agreement to which or by which it is bound in which the
default could reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Change.

5.2      COLLATERAL. Borrower has good title to the Collateral, free of Liens
except Permitted Liens. The Eligible Accounts are bona fide, existing
obligations, and the service or property has been performed or delivered to
the account debtor or its agent for immediate shipment to and unconditional
acceptance by the account debtor. Borrower has no notice of any actual or
imminent Insolvency Proceeding of any account debtor whose accounts are an
Eligible Account in any Borrowing Base Certificate. All Inventory is in all
material respects of good and marketable quality, free from material defects.
Borrower is the sole owner of the Intellectual Property, except for
non-exclusive licenses granted to its customers in the ordinary course of
business. Each Patent is valid and enforceable and no part of the
Intellectual Property has been judged invalid or unenforceable, in whole or
in part, and no claim has been made that any part of the Intellectual
Property violates the rights of any third party.

5.3      LITIGATION. Except as shown in the Schedule, there are no actions or
proceedings pending or, to Borrower's knowledge, threatened by or against
Borrower or any Subsidiary in which an adverse decision could reasonably be
expected to cause a Material Adverse Change.

material deterioration in Borrower's consolidated financial condition since
the date of the most recent financial statements submitted to Bank.

goodwill minus disposition costs) exceeds the fair value of its liabilities;
the Borrower is not left with unreasonably small capital after the
transactions in this Agreement; and Borrower is able to pay its debts
(including trade debts) as they mature.

company "controlled" by an "investment company" under the Investment Company
Act. Borrower is not engaged as one of its important activities in extending
credit for margin stock (under Regulations T and U of the Federal Reserve
Board of Governors). Borrower has complied with the Federal Fair Labor
Standards Act. Borrower has not violated any laws, ordinances or rules, the
violation of which could reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse
Change. None of Borrower's or any Subsidiary's properties or assets has been
used by Borrower or any Subsidiary or, to the best of Borrower's knowledge,
by previous Persons, in disposing, producing, storing, treating, or
transporting any hazardous substance other than legally. Borrower and each
Subsidiary has timely filed all required tax returns and paid, or made
adequate provision to pay, all material taxes. Borrower and each Subsidiary

6.1      GOVERNMENT COMPLIANCE. Borrower will maintain its and all
Subsidiaries' corporate existence and good standing in its jurisdiction of
incorporation and maintain qualification in each jurisdiction in which the
failure to so qualify could reasonably be expected to have a material adverse
effect on Borrower's business or operations. Borrower will comply, and have
each Subsidiary comply, with all laws, ordinances and regulations to which it
is subject, noncompliance with which could reasonably be expected to have a
material adverse effect on Borrower's business or operations or could
reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Change.

and in amounts that are satisfactory to Bank. All property policies will have
a lender's loss payable endorsement showing Bank as a loss payee and all
liability policies will show the Bank as an additional insured and provide
that the insurer must give Bank at least 20 days notice before canceling its
policy. At Bank's request, Borrower will deliver certified copies of policies
and evidence of all premium payments. Proceeds payable under any policy will,
at Bank's option, be payable to Bank on account of the Obligations. If no
Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, proceeds payable under any
casualty policy will, at Borrower's option, be payable to Borrower to replace
the property subject to the claim, provided that any such replacement
property shall be deemed Collateral in which Bank has been granted a first

payable to Bank on account of the Obligations.

8.1      PAYMENT DEFAULT. Borrower fails to pay any of the Obligations within

9.1 RIGHTS AND REMEDIES. When an Event of Default occurs and continues Bank may,
without notice or demand, do any or all of the following:

         (a) Declare all Obligations immediately due and payable (but if an
Event of Default described in Section 8.5 occurs all Obligations are immediately
due and payable without any action by Bank);

         (b) Stop advancing money or extending credit for Borrower's benefit
under this Agreement or under any other agreement between Borrower and Bank;

         (c) Settle or adjust disputes and claims directly with account debtors
for amounts, on terms and in any order that Bank considers advisable;

         (d) Make any payments and do any acts it considers necessary or
reasonable to protect its security interest in the Collateral. Borrower will
assemble the Collateral if Bank requests and make it available as Bank
designates. Bank may enter premises where the Collateral is located, take and
maintain possession of any part of the Collateral, and pay, purchase, contest,
or compromise any Lien which appears to be prior or superior to its security
interest and pay all expenses incurred. Borrower grants Bank a license to enter
and occupy any of its premises, without charge, to exercise any of Bank's rights
or remedies;

         (e) Apply to the Obligations any (i) balances and deposits of Borrower
it holds, or (ii) any amount held by Bank owing to or for the credit or the
account of Borrower;

         (f) Ship, reclaim, recover, store, finish, maintain, repair, prepare
for sale, advertise for sale, and sell the Collateral. Bank is granted a
non-exclusive, royalty-free license or other right to use, without charge,
Borrower's labels, Patents, Copyrights, Mask Works, rights of use of any name,
trade secrets, trade names, Trademarks, service marks, and advertising matter,
or any similar property as it pertains to the Collateral, in completing
production of, advertising for sale, and selling any Collateral and, in
connection with Bank's exercise of its rights under this Section, Borrower's
rights under all licenses and all franchise agreements inure to Bank's benefit;


         (g) Dispose of the Collateral according to the Code.

9.2      POWER OF ATTORNEY. When an Event of Default occurs and continues,
Borrower irrevocably appoints Bank as its lawful attorney to: (i) endorse
Borrower's name on any checks or other forms of payment or security; (ii)
sign Borrower's name on any invoice or bill of lading for any Account or
drafts against account debtors, (iii) make, settle, and adjust all claims
under Borrower's insurance policies; (iv) settle and adjust disputes and
claims about the Accounts directly with account debtors, for amounts and on
terms Bank determines reasonable; and (v) transfer the Collateral into the
name of Bank or a third party as the Code permits. Bank may exercise the
power of attorney to sign Borrower's name on any documents necessary to
perfect or continue the perfection of any security interest regardless of
whether an Event of Default has occurred. Bank's appointment as Borrower's
attorney in fact, and all of Bank's rights and powers, coupled with an
interest, are irrevocable until all Obligations have been fully repaid and
performed and Bank's obligation to provide Credit Extensions terminates. `

9.3      ACCOUNTS COLLECTION. When an Event of Default occurs and continues,
Bank may notify any Person owing Borrower money of Bank's security interest
in the funds and verify the amount of the Account. Borrower must collect all
payments in trust for Bank and, if requested by Bank, immediately deliver the
payments to Bank in the form received from the account debtor, with proper
endorsements for deposit.

9.4      BANK EXPENSES. If Borrower fails to pay any amount or furnish any
required proof of payment thereof to third persons Bank may make all or part
of the payment or obtain insurance policies required in Section 6.5, and take
any action under the policies Bank deems prudent. Any amounts paid by Bank
are Bank Expenses and immediately due and payable, bearing interest at the
then applicable rate and secured by the Collateral. No payments by Bank are
deemed an agreement to make similar payments in the future or Bank's waiver
of any Event of Default.
