 MONTGOMERY WARD BEGINS MARKETING WANG EXEC SERIES PCS
 LOWELL, Mass., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Wang Laboratories, Inc. (AMEX: WAN) and Montgomery Ward today announced that Montgomery Ward, one of the nation's largest retail merchandising organizations, has begun selling EXEC Series personal computers from Wang.
 Montgomery Ward operates 356 retail stores in 39 states, with approximately 25 million square feet of selling space. The company is marketing Wang EXEC Series PCs through its Electric Avenue Appliance and electronics specialty stores.
 "We see our business partnership with Wang as a strategic alliance that demonstrates our continuing commitment to the home-office and small-business markets," said Bob Schoeberl, senior vice president, Electric Avenue, at Montgomery Ward. "Wang EXEC Series PCs offer the kind of product quality and value, plus comprehensive service and support, that our customers in these growing PC markets are going to demand."
 "We are very excited to see Wang EXEC Series PCs featured in Montgomery Ward's Electric Avenue speciality stores," said Walter F. Foley, director, PC Sales and Marketing for the Mass Merchandising Channel, at Wang. "We believe that this value-driven retailing environment, with its focus on specific customer needs, is in complete harmony with the strong value-consciousness we see among the home-office and small-business PC users for whom we designed the EXEC Series PCs."
 All systems in the Wang EXEC Series are fully IBM compatible and include at least two megabytes of system memory. All desktop EXEC systems come equipped with Microsoft's Windows graphical environment, allowing users to take advantage of a wide array of the latest application software. Three models scheduled to be available in the spring will include a new audio integrated circuit built directly into the PC motherboard.
 MS-DOS 5.0 and the latest release of the Microsoft Works integrated software package for word processing, spreadsheet, graphics, database management, and communications, are factory- installed on all desktop models. In addition, Microsoft Corporation's Productivity and Entertainment Packs are pre-installed. Each system comes with a keyboard and a mouse. For systems that do not come in bundled cinfigurations, users can select from two optional 14-inch VGA color monitors.
 Wang EXEC system hardware is covered by a one-year limited factory warranty on parts and labor, with one year of on-site service at the user's home or office.
