SILICON GRAPHICS EXTENDS BENEFITS TO SAME-SEX SPOUSAL EQUIVALENTS

 SILICON GRAPHICS EXTENDS BENEFITS TO SAME-SEX SPOUSAL EQUIVALENTS
 MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicon Graphics Inc. (NYSE: SGI) announced today that it plans to include same-sex "spousal equivalents" in its employee benefits program. The move makes Silicon Graphics one of the few large corporations to extend benefits to its employees same-sex partners.
 "Silicon Graphics is committed to valuing differences in our work force," said Jennifer Konecny, vice president of human resources at Silicon Graphics. "The company is taking an important role in demonstrating our commitment to diversity in the work place."
 The change, effective Oct. 1, means that same-sex spousal equivalents of Silicon Graphics employees are eligible to participate in the company's medical, dental and vision insurance plans, and its adoption assistance and employee assistance programs. The company also will offer the same relocation assistance service currently provided to legally married couples.
 Benefits are available to all same-sex spousal equivalents of Silicon Graphics employees in the United States. To apply, employees and their partners sign a "Spousal Equivalency Affidavit," a document which formally expresses the couple's status as spousal equivalents. As state and federal laws di not provide same-sex partners the option of legalizing their relationships through marriage, Silicon Graphics is taking this action to provide benefits to such partners who cannot become eligible for them through legal recognition of their relationship.
 Silicon Graphics Inc. is the leading manufacturer of visual computing systems. The company delivers three-dimensional graphics, color, audio, video and real-time technologies to the technical, scientific and creative computing marketplace. Silicon Graphics Inc. has offices worldwide and headquarters in Mountain View.
