DELL COMPUTER SEEKS TO BUILD ON STRONG FUNDAMENTAL BUSINESS; COMPANY WORKING TO STRENGTHEN STRUCTURE TO SUPPORT HYPER-GROWTH

 AUSTIN, Texas, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chairman of Dell Computer Corporation (NASDAQ: DELL) today told shareholders that the company is developing more robust systems and processes to better support the 285 percent consolidated revenue growth Dell has experienced over the last two years and its anticipated strong growth in the future.
 Speaking at Dell's annual meeting of shareholders, CEO Michael Dell explained that the company's rapid growth had strained systems, and that the business had become increasingly complex due to the proliferation of new products, new distribution channels and new geographies. "We are currently developing systems and processes needed to support a global multi-billion dollar business that continues to grow at a very fast pace," stated Mr. Dell. "We are concentrating on supply/demand forecasting, the integration of our manufacturing processes and improving our product introduction processes."
 He also noted the company is working vigorously on a broad overhaul of its notebook program. This initiative is likely to include new partnerships and alliances with developers of emerging technologies such as wireless and cellular communications. The company expects to leverage its distribution system to provide ultimately a broad selection of mobile computing devices to its customers. "We are intent on becoming a major competitor in the mobile computing arena," Mr. Dell said, "but we are also determined to be patient and to deliver the right products at the right time. This means that a major notebook announcement may not come until later this year or early next year."
 "The next two quarters, as we've said before, will be difficult for us as we rebuild our notebook business and make needed investments," he continued. "However, our overall revenue momentum continues to be very strong, and we believe we are well on track toward achieving $3 billion in revenues this fiscal year."
 Also at the meeting today, held at the Stouffer Hotel in Austin, shareholders voted to re-elect Michael Dell and Bobby R. Inman as directors for three-year terms. Shareholders also voted to elect Michael H. Jordan to his first three-year term as director.
 Shareholders also approved Price Waterhouse as Dell's independent auditors for fiscal 1994; approved the company's 1993 stock option plan and approved certain amendments to the company's 1989 stock option plan.
