UNIDIRECT U.K. OPENS FOR BUSINESS; UNIX GROWTH DRIVING DEMAND FOR INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT

 UNIDIRECT U.K. OPENS FOR BUSINESS;
 UNIX GROWTH DRIVING DEMAND FOR INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT
 IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- UniDirect Corp. in Irvine announced the opening of UniDirect (UK) Ltd., an affiliated office in Rugby, Warwickshire, in the United Kingdom. Although UniDirect Corp. holds only a minority interest in UniDirect (UK), the two companies will work together to meet the growing international demand for UNIX shrink-wrap products.
 Berni Jubb, president of UniDirect Corp., said, "Most UNIX customers do not have easy access to UNIX products. We're greasing that slide. UniDirect (UK) is part of our ongoing effort toward global access for UNIX users." He explained further, "It's our intention to cooperate with a network of independent companies dedicated to the UNIX shrink-wrap market. UniDirect (UK), a near- clone of our offices here, will operate independently under the management of Ted Little and his partners."
 "We have a mission to become the largest supplier of systems, tools and utilities for multiplatform UNIX in the U.K.," said Little. "The current market of commercial multiuser UNIX sytems in the U.K. is around 175,000, from close to 17,000 different companies, and we believe this will at least quadruple in the next two to three years."
 Additional marketing and operating agreements between the two companies will be signed during Jubb's trip to Rugby in November.
 UniDirect Corp., formed in 1990, is the dominant supplier of direct-marketed, "shrink-wrapped" UNIX software and PC/UNIX connectivity products. For more information on UniDirect or UNIX products, call 800-755-UNIX, or fax to 714-707-3095. For UniDirect U.K. Ltd., call 0788-552005, or fax to 0788-551129.
