CLARIS REPORTS 30-PERCENT REVENUE GROWTH IN SECOND QUARTER; FIVE NEW PRODUCTS BOOST REVENUE AND PROFITS

 SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Claris Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: AAPL), today announced revenue for its second fiscal quarter which ended March 26, 1993.
 Claris, a leading worldwide vendor of applications software for the Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows platforms, said net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 1993 was $32.5 million, a 30-percent increase from $24.9 million in the second quarter of the prior fiscal year.
 "Thanks to exciting new products, expansion of our business in Japan, and consistent attention to expense controls in this increasingly price-competitive business, we delivered significant growth in revenue and profits compared to the second fiscal quarter of last year," said Claris President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel L. Ellers. "The strategies we put in place 18 months ago are working, and we're sustaining revenue growth that is nearly twice the applications software industry's average."
 During the quarter, Claris shipped ClarisWorks 2.0 for Macintosh, a new version of its best-selling integrated software; MacWrite Pro for Macintosh, its long-awaited word-processing software; and MacDraw Japan, a Kanji version of the best-selling drawing software. Claris also delivered the first two products from its new brand, Claris Clear Choice. Claris Clear Choice offers innovative software development companies a chance to sell products through Claris. The first two products are Retrieve It!, a desktop utility for the Macintosh, and Power To Go, a Macintosh PowerBook utility.
 Ellers said he expects significant growth in the second half of the fiscal year from FileMaker Pro database management software for Macintosh and Windows, and from ClarisWorks for Macintosh and Windows. ClarisWorks for Windows shipped at the end of April 1993.
 Claris Corp., a leading worldwide vendor of Macintosh and Windows software for business, education and home, has headquarters in Santa Clara.
