ALDUS ANTICIPATES WEAKER FOURTH-QUARTER RESULTS

 ALDUS ANTICIPATES WEAKER FOURTH-QUARTER RESULTS
 SEATTLE, Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Because of sluggish economic


conditions in the United States and several of its European markets, Aldus Corp. (NASDAQ: ALDC) today announced that it expects revenue and earnings to be below the financial community estimates for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 1991.
 The company expects to report revenue between $40 and $43 million and earnings per share between 27 cents and 32 cents for the fourth quarter. The company intends to report final results for the fourth quarter and year-end on Feb. 4, 1992. For the nine-month period ended Sept. 27, 1991, the company reported revenue of $124.8 million and earnings per share of $1.25, compared with revenue of $95.4 million and earnings per share of $1.12 for the nine-month period ended Sept. 28, 1990.
 "We believe our fourth quarter revenue shortfall is the result of recessionary impact in our U.S. and European markets. In particular, the three markets which affected our third-quarter results, the United Kingdom, France and Sweden, were weaker than expected in the fourth quarter," said Bill McAleer, vice president of finance. "In addition, prior to the shipment of our new upgrade in December, we experienced softness in our PageMaker Macintosh sales," added McAleer.
 The company enters the first quarter of 1992 with a broadened and enhanced product line. On Jan. 6, the company simultaneously announced Aldus Persuasion(R) 2.1 for Windows and Aldus Persuasion 2.1 for the Macintosh. These announcements follow the shipment of six new or upgraded products in the fourth quarter of 1991. The new products include Aldus FreeHand(R) 3.0 for Windows, Aldus PageMaker(R) 4.2 for the Macintosh, Aldus FreeHand 3.1 for the Macintosh, Aldus PhotoStyler(TM), Aldus PageMaker Database Edition, and Aldus SuperCard(R) 1.6 for the Macintosh.
 Aldus Corp. creates computer software solutions that help people throughout the world effectively communicate information and ideas. The Aldus product line includes Aldus PageMaker(R), Aldus Persuasion(R), Aldus FreeHand(R), Aldus(R) Digital Darkroom(TM), Aldus(R) Gallery Effects(TM), Aldus(R) Personal Press(TM), Aldus PhotoStyler(TM), Aldus PrePrint(R), Aldus SuperCard(R), Aldus SuperPaint(R), and Aldus(R) Super 3D(TM).
