 MERISEL ANNOUNCED AS NATIONAL DISTRIBUTOR
 OF ZENITH DATA SYSTEMS PRODUCTS
 EL SEGUNDO, Calif, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Merisel Inc. (NASDAQ: MSEL) today announced it has expanded the scope of its relationship with Zenith Data Systems (ZDS) by signing a new national distribution agreement. Merisel will now carry the full line of ZDS desktops, servers and notebook PCs, including the recently announced Z- NOTE notebook computers. Merisel has carried the company's full line of monitors since 1988.
 "The Merisel/ZDS relationship will enhance our current focus on the fast-growing segment of portable computers, and will give our resellers easier and faster access to one of the industry's leading systems brands," said Merisel Vice President of Products Linda Kroog. "We've found that the factors which most influence a reseller's buying decision with systems are strength of brand, price competitiveness and feature set. The ZDS products rate highly in these areas and represent a strategic addition to our systems offering."
 The ZDS product line includes the Z-NOTE portable computers, the first PC-compatible notebooks with built-in network capability. ZDS plans to introduce a completely new line of notebook and desktop computers, servers and monitors in June.
 "Merisel is committed to serving the needs of VARs and providing them with complete solutions," said ZDS Vice President of Marketing and Channel Development Dan Rosensteel. "Choosing Merisel as our partner greatly broadens our national distribution base and offers us greater access to the VAR community."

With headquarters in Buffalo Grove, Ill., ZDS has engineering facilities in St. Joseph, Mich., Santa Clara, Calif. and Billerica, Mass.; manufacturing facilities in St. Joseph and Villeneuve d'Ascq, France; and sales facilities in more than 30 countries.
