Item 5.  Other Events

     This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements within
the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and
Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The forward-
looking statements contained herein involve risks and uncertainties, including
those relating to the possible inability to complete the merger transaction
involving Chordiant Software, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Chordiant") and
Prime Response, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Prime Response"), as scheduled,
or at all, and those associated with the ability of the combined company to
achieve the anticipated benefits of the proposed merger. Actual results and
developments may differ materially from those described or incorporated by
reference in this Report. For more information about Prime Response and risks
arising when investing in Prime Response, investors are directed to Prime
Response's March 3, 2000 prospectus relating to its initial public offering of
common stock as filed pursuant to Rule 424 of the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

     On January 8, 2001, Chordiant and Prime Response entered into an Agreement
and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the "Merger Agreement") pursuant to which
Chordiant has agreed to acquire Prime Response in a stock-for-stock merger.
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement and subject to the terms and conditions set
forth therein, Merger Sub will merge with and into Prime Response (the "Merger")
and Prime Response will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Chordiant. Pursuant
to the Merger Agreement, each outstanding share of Prime Response common stock
will be exchanged for 0.60 of a share of Chordiant common stock (the "Exchange
Ratio"), and all outstanding options and warrants to purchase Prime Response
common stock will be assumed by Chordiant and exchanged for options and warrants
to purchase shares of Chordiant's common stock, with the exercise price and
number of shares of Chordiant's common stock subject to each such assumed option
or warrant appropriately adjusted to reflect the Exchange Ratio set forth above.
The Merger is subject to customary closing conditions including the approval of
both Chordiant and Prime Response stockholders. The Merger is intended to
qualify as a tax-free reorganization within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the
Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and will be accounted for as a
purchase. The description contained in this Item 5 of the transactions to be
consummated pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement is
qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement,
a copy of which is attached to this Report as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated
herein by reference.

     On January 8, 2001, Chordiant and Prime Response issued a joint press
release relating to their intention to undertake the Merger. A copy of the press
release is attached to this Report as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by
reference herein.
