 BELLSOUTH ENTERPRISES TO ACQUIRE SCIENTIFIC SOFTWARE
 ATLANTA, Dec. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- In a move to further strengthen


its position in Intelligent Network Systems Integration, BellSouth Enterprises, Inc., announced today that it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire Scientific Software, Inc. (SSI), a leading data communications software company based in Atlanta, for an undisclosed price.
 Scientific Software specializes in the development and application of complex network integration tools used in various network management, on-line transaction processing and inter-enterprise networking applications. SSI's Network Express(R) product, for example, is the dominant communications platform for the IBM System/88 and Stratus computer architecture.
 "The acquisition of Scientific Software broadens our Advanced Network Group's Intelligent Network Systems Integration product line, improving our responsiveness to the more complex needs of our customers. It also gives us additional tools to craft our own information network systems and to bring new services through both wireline and wireless networks," said W.O. McCoy, president of BellSouth Enterprises.
 BellSouth's Advanced Network Group includes BellSouth Information Networks, BellSouth Advanced Networks, and components of BellSouth Information Systems. The companies are subsidiaries of BellSouth Enterprises, which manages BellSouth's mobile communications, advertising/publishing, and information services groups worldwide.
 SSI is a privately held company with installations throughout the U.S. and in 11 countries in Europe and Asia/Pacific. Its clients include Lloyd's of London, Philadelphia Stock Exchange, First Interstate Bank, NaBANCO, Inter-Continental Hotels Group, Visa and UNUM Life Insurance.
 The transaction, which is expected to close in January 1992, will not materially affect BellSouth's earnings.
