Item 5.        Other Events

Post-Merger Financial Results

On August 15, 2000, Wolf Acquisition, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a newly
formed and wholly owned subsidiary of webMethods, Inc. (the "Company" or
"Registrant") merged into Active Software, Inc. ("Active"). As a result of the
Merger, the separate corporate existence of Wolf Acquisition, Inc. ceased and
Active survived as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Each issued and
outstanding share of Active's common stock, other than shares held by Active
itself or a subsidiary of Active, was converted into the right to receive 0.527
of a share of fully paid and non-assessable shares of webMethods common stock,
par value $0.01 per share. The Merger was treated as a tax-free reorganization
and was accounted for as a pooling-of-interests transaction. One of the
required criteria for pooling-of-interests accounting is that the parties to
the business combination must share mutually in the combined risks and rights
of the transaction. In order to satisfy the risk sharing criteria of
pooling-of-interests accounting, Securities and Exchange Commission Accounting
Release Series 135 provides that the risk sharing will have occurred if no
affiliate of either party to the merger transaction sells or otherwise disposes
of any common stock received in the transaction until such time as financial
results covering at least 30 days of post-merger combined operations have been
published. To satisfy this risk sharing requirement, and thereby allow
affiliates of either party to sell or otherwise dispose of the Company's common
stock acquired in the Merger, the attached press release contains the Company's
second quarter results, which include the results of the combined operations of
the Company and Active for the entire quarter ended September 30, 2000,
including the period from August 15, 2000 (date at close) to September 30,
