MICRONICS ANNOUNCES MANAGEMENT CHANGES; COMPANY NAMES NEW VICE PRESIDENT OF MARKETING

 FREMONT, Calif., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Micronics Computers Inc. (NASDAQ: MCRN) today announced that Robert N. Gunn has been named to the new position of vice president of marketing for the company, effective immediately.
 In a related move, Larry Barber, formerly vice president of marketing and OEM sales for Micronics, will assume the newly created post of vice president of worldwide sales.
 Regarding the announcement, Steve Kitrosser, chairman and chief executive officer, stated: "Micronics has continued to grow rapidly over the past year, which has placed us in the enviable position of having to expand and focus our management team. Robert's marketing experience and insight will be tapped immediately to help us set product and corporate strategy."
 As the newest member of Micronics' management team, Gunn brings over 13 years of experience in high-tech sales and marketing to this position. Most recently, Gunn was vice president of sales for TriQuint Semiconductor, a pioneer in the field of silicon-compatible gallium arsenide integrated circuits. Prior to joining TriQuint in 1991, Gunn spent two years as vice president of marketing and sales for Gazelle Microcircuits. He has also held various senior management positions at Signetics and OKI Semiconductor.
 Kitrosser also announced that Dean Chang, senior vice president of research and development and strategic planning, has formally stated his intention to withdraw from his day-to-day management responsibilities, but will continue to influence corporate direction through his role as director.
 "Dean has put in a tremendous amount of effort to help build Micronics from a start-up to a market leader," explained Kitrosser. "With an experienced staff in place on the research and development side, the addition of Mr. Gunn, and a new product launch cycle already under way, Dean will pass on the reins during the next 30 to 60 days. We are pleased, however, that he will continue to offer his insight and experience as a member of our board of directors."
