 MERISEL RECOGNIZED BY SCO FOR EXCELLENCE
 IN SUPPORT AND EDUCATION DURING 1992
 EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Merisel's Educational Services Division announced today it has received SCO's prestigious "Excellence in Support & Education" award. Each year, SCO recognizes its distributor partners that excel in providing widely comprehensive high-quality technical support and training to resellers across the United States. For the fiscal year 1992, Merisel was rated as the distributor with the best overall ranking for these services.
 "SCO bases this award on two criteria," said SCO National Distribution Sales Manager Lloyd Brogan. "We look for the lowest ratio of support calls to net purchases as well as the number of new resellers authorized through the distributor's education program. Merisel surpassed all other distributors in both areas and continually demonstrated a commitment to maintaining the highest levels of excellence in support and education."
 "We are very pleased to have been able to assist our customers and SCO in its reseller authorization process," said Merisel Director of Technical Support and Educational Services Division Ken Fothergill.
 Merisel's Educational Partner Program (M.E.P.P.) utilizes a network of independent, manufacturer-authorized training partners across the country to provide resellers with a wide range of sales and technical training courses in support of their market opportunities. These high-quality classes in networking technology and UNIX environments provide both Merisel and non-Merisel resellers alike with valuable hands-on experience and product training.
 Founded in 1979, SCO maintains corporate offices across North America, Europe and the Pacific Rim. SCO is recognized internationally for its open systems software, UNIX operating systems and development tools and its comprehensive consulting, training and support services. In addition, thousands of applications are available to run on the SCO platform.
