SYQUEST TECHNOLOGY AND MICROTECH INTERNATIONAL SETTLE DISPUTE

 SYQUEST TECHNOLOGY AND MICROTECH INTERNATIONAL SETTLE DISPUTE
 EAST HAVEN, Conn., Dec. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Microtech International, Inc., and SyQuest Technology announced today that they had settled their claims against one another on a mutually satisfactory basis and that the litigation between them which was pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California had been dismissed in its entirety.
 SyQuest designs, develops, manufactures, and markets removable cartridge Winchester disk drives and the data storage cartridges used with them. The company's products combine the advantages of fixed Winchester disk drives with the benefits of removability, which include unlimited incremental expansion of data storage capacity, transfer and sharing of data and software among personal computers as well as backup, archival storage and physical security of data. The company's principal products are 5.25 inch drives and cartridges used primarily with computers manufactured by Apple Computer, Inc. During fiscal 1991, SyQuest established its SyDOS division to manufacture storage subsystems incorporating SyQuest drives and cartridges and to sell them in the IBM PC and compatibles aftermarket.
 Microtech International, Inc., is a leading manufacturer of quality, high performance peripherals for Macintosh, NeXT, DOS and other computing platforms. Microtech's product line includes mass storage systems (rewritable optical, fixed and removable hard disk drives), CD ROM drives, tape backup systems and memory expansion boards. As a contract manufacturer, Microtech also builds subsystems and external hard drives for major OEMs including Apple Computer, Inc., and NeXT Computer, Inc. Microtech began setting industry standards in 1987 with its unprecedented five-year warranty, and continues today to develop comprehensive service programs such as the Microtech Drive-Up Service, designed to support other third party manufacturers' products. Founded in 1985, Microtech is headquartered in East Haven and together with its affiliates has offices in the San Francisco Bay Area, London, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.
