today announced that the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware yesterday approved the previously reported sale of its European
operations and certain U.S. assets to Datapoint NewCo 1 Limited for $49.5
million in cash, less certain adjustments, including an adjustment in the event
that the aggregate shareholder deficit of the European operations exceeds $10.0
million at closing (Docket Number 00-1853 (PJW)). The sale is expected to close
within 30 days.

The Company intends to file a reorganization plan pursuant to Chapter
11 of the Bankruptcy Code. Negotiations have commenced regarding the terms of
such plan with members of the Committee of Unsecured Creditors previously

Networks (TM) products users seamlessly share and exchange valuable information,
selectively and securely, within their networked community and across
enterprises via the Internet. Companies that standardize their network on
Corebyte Networks(TM) products gain all the benefits of the Internet and
eliminate the fear of obsolescence.
