GSA BOARD OF CONTRACT APPEALS DENIES IRS CONTRACT PROTEST; AT&T/PYRAMID IRS AWARD TO GO FORWARD

 GSA BOARD OF CONTRACT APPEALS DENIES IRS CONTRACT PROTEST;
 AT&T/PYRAMID IRS AWARD TO GO FORWARD
 SAN JOSE, Calif., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Pyramid Technology Corp. (NASDAQ: PYRD) confirmed today that the General Services Administration's (GSA) Board of Contract Appeals has denied the protests of IBM and Lockheed regarding the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) award of the $1.4 billion Treasury Multiuser Acquisition Contract (TMAC) to AT&T. Pyramid is the principal subcontractor to AT&T for supplying high-performance, RISC-based computer systems. The contract had been originally awarded in July 1991, but was subsequently protested. The award was returned to the IRS for additional analysis and reconsideration, and reconfirmed in March of 1992.
 According to the terms of TMAC, AT&T will provide the IRS with systems comprised of multiple workstations networked to high- performance servers -- including terminals, peripherals, local area networks, software and support services such as systems integration, user training and maintenance. Pyramid will supply up to 3,200 high- performance servers over the life of the contract.
 "We are pleased that the protest process has finally run its course, and we look forward to delivering on the contract with our partner AT&T/NCR as soon as possible," said Edward W. Scott, Jr., executive vice president of Pyramid. "The award is an affirmation of the strength of our products and expertise, and a credit to the quality of our people." Company Background
