ELECTRONIC BOOK TECHNOLOGIES, INC. ANNOUNCES ITS CANADIAN SUBSIDIARY

 TORONTO, March 10 /PRnewswire/ -- Electronic Book Technologies, Inc. (EBT) today announced the formation of its Canadian subsidiary based in Toronto, Ontario. EBT Canada, Ltd. will strengthen its ongoing efforts in Canada and serve the growing demand for its software, by establishing direct sales channels and strategic alliances with integrators and value-added partners. When first announced two and one half years ago at TechDoc 90, DynaText was the first and only system to fulfill the promise of ISO's standard generalized markup language (SGML) by allowing users to publish and deliver dynamic electronic books directly from existing SGML documents. Today, DynaText is still the only system of its kind that supports SGML directly and it is rapidly becoming a de facto standard within industries that are moving toward SGML-based electronic information publishing.
 Peder Enhorning will head EBT Canada, Ltd. Enhorning brings several years experience in the document production, management and electronic distribution field, having spent the past five years as District Manager for Interleaf Canada, Inc.
 DynaText is currently installed at several hundred sites worldwide. Consumers include major manufacturers in industries such as aircraft, automotive, computer hardware/software, electronics, and telecommunications as well as government systems integrators, publishing companies and academic research centers. Not content with its early success, EBT has made a series of aggressive moves over the last 24 months to position itself as a major supplier in this emerging new market arena: it has also established international distribution in Europe and Australia, ported DynaText to almost all major UNIX platforms as well as PCs running MS-Windows and will introduce DynaText for the Macintosh by mid-summer 1993.
 "Over the past year, worldwide demand for our products has been explosive. With strong interest for SGML solutions and DynaText in Canada, the establishment of our Canadian subsidiary marks our enthusiastic commitment to the Canadian market." said EBT President Lou Reynolds.
 Electronic Book Technologies, Inc. was founded in 1989 to provide in-house publishers with state-of-the-art solutions nformation publishing tool s ilt around the international SGML standard from the ground up. EBT has combined the insights gained from advanced hypermedia research with the practical requirements dictated by todays marketplace to develop a system that is powerful, yet extremely easy to use. EBT is privately held and is headquartered in Providence, RI.
