UNISYS AND SEQUENT EXTEND WORLDWIDE OEM AGREEMENT

 UNISYS AND SEQUENT EXTEND WORLDWIDE OEM AGREEMENT
 BLUE BELL, Pa., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation


(NYSE: UIS) and Sequent Computer Sytems, Inc. (Beaverton, Ore.) (NASDAQ: SQNT) today announced that they have extended their worldwide original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement through January 1994.
 Originally signed in January 1989, the five-year agreement included a three-year initial phase and two optional one-year extensions. Under terms of the OEM agreement, Sequent provides Unisys with computers from its Symmetry 2000 line of parallel multiprocessor systems, which Unisys resells as the high-end models in its U 6000 Series of UNIX systems.
 "The extension of this agreement affirms the mutual value of the strategic relationship that Unisys and Sequent have forged over the last three years," said Hugh Lynch, executive vice president and president of Unisys Computer Systems Product Group. "Many of our mainframe customers are augmenting their information hubs with open systems solutions, and the platforms we OEM from Sequent are important in meeting these requirements."
 Lynch continued, "Our alliance with Sequent continues to be a key element in Unisys' strategy of providing value-added open systems, based on the Intel architecture, for on-line transaction processing and other mission-critical commercial applications."
 "Unisys is a valued Sequent customer and we are pleased to be extending our OEM contract for another two years," said Scott Gibson, Sequent's president and co-holder of the office of chief executive. "We are seeing an increasing demand for high-end open systems from large corporations who are extending their existing mainframe systems with distributed, open systems. Unisys shares our commitment to meeting the needs of these companies and Sequent has benefited greatly from Unisys' expertise at selling to their large commercial customer base."
 Sequent Computer Systems, Inc. is a leading provider of open-systems computing solutions for commercial markets. Since the launch of its parallel processor family in 1984, Sequent has installed more than 4,000 systems worldwide.
