Barrack Rodos Announces Update of Class Action Against Amplidyne, Inc. and Its Officers and Directors.

PHILADELPHIA, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 8, 1999--

Counsel for Class Plaintiff, Barrack, Rodos & Bacine, today issued the following:

A class action has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of all persons who purchased the common stock of Amplidyne, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMPD) ("Amplidyne" or the "Company") between September 9 and September 14, 1999, inclusive (the "Class Period").

The complaint charges Amplidyne and its Chief Executive Officer and President with violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as well as Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

The complaint alleges that defendants issued materially false or misleading statements regarding its products and the technology employed therein.

Because of the issuance of these false or misleading statements, the price of Amplidyne common stock rose from approximately $3.00 per share, to a high of $10.13 per share in trading of 17.3 million shares, approximately 600 times its three-month daily average trading volume on September 9, 1999.

The plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of Amplidyne common stock during the Class Period. He is represented by the law firm of Barrack, Rodos & Bacine, which has extensive experience in prosecuting investor class actions involving financial fraud.

Barrack, Rodos & Bacine has prosecuted securities, antitrust and consumer class actions for over 20 years. The firm has offices in Philadelphia, San Diego, New York, Boston and New Jersey and has been designated lead counsel by federal and state courts across the country in large, complex cases.
