UNIQUEST ANNOUNCES REVISED TERMS AND INTERIM FINANCING FOR CHECKROBOT MERGER

 UNIQUEST ANNOUNCES REVISED TERMS AND INTERIM
 FINANCING FOR CHECKROBOT MERGER
 JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- UNIQUEST, Inc. (NASDAQ: UQST) and CheckRobot, Inc. (NASDAQ: CKRB) of Deerfield Beach, Fla. today announced the revision of certain terms and conditions of the Agreement and Plan of Merger executed in late 1991. Additionally, UNIQUEST announced that a revised plan for interim financing of CheckRobot's operations until completion of the merger had been agreed upon between UNIQUEST, CheckRobot and OmniCorp International B.V., CheckRobot's largest shareholder and principal creditor.
 Pursuant to the revised terms and conditions of the merger, UNIQUEST will exchange one share of its common stock for approximately every 2.88 shares of CheckRobot common stock outstanding or issuable on conversion of, or as stock dividends on, its convertible preferred stock. Holders of publicly traded and certain other warrants to purchase common stock of CheckRobot will exchange such securities for newly issued warrants to purchase UNIQUEST's common stock on a similar exchange basis with all terms of such warrants remaining unchanged. The principal change in the terms of the merger is that the original exchange rate of one share of UNIQUEST common stock for every approximately 2.55 shares of CheckRobot common stock was adjusted to account for the additional financing to be provided to CheckRobot by UNIQUEST prior to the completion of the merger and the contribution of certain other sales and marketing resources to CheckRobot by UNIQUEST during such interim period which were not contemplated by the initial Merger and Management Agreements. In addition, certain conditions precedent to the merger have been waived.
 Until the merger is completed, UNIQUEST and OmniCorp have agreed to jointly provide working capital financing to CheckRobot as needed to sustain operations in a total amount of $390,000. In the event that additional working capital financing is required by CheckRobot in excess of $390,000, UNIQUEST has greed to provide such financings as needed. Concurrent with the agreement for additional joint financing by UNIQUEST and OmniCorp during the interim period, UNIQUEST and OmniCorp have agreed to restructure certain obligations due OmniCorp which serve to reduce such obligations while accelerating their maturity.
 The revised terms and conditions of the merger have been approved by the respective boards of directors of the two companies. The merger is subject to the approval of the stockholders of CheckRobot. A special meeting will be held to consider and approve the merger upon completion and dissemination of a joint proxy statement/prospectus to such stockholders. It is anticipated that the meeting will be held in April or May 1992.
 August P. Klein, president and CEO of UNIQUEST, Inc. stated: "We have managed the operations of CheckRobot for over 60 days since the signing of the Merger and Management Agreements and remain very excited about the CheckRobot opportunity. During this period, CheckRobot has completed a three year business plan, restructured its product pricing and deliverable strategy and aggressively pursued marketing and sales opportunities. We are encouraged by the progress of these efforts to date and believe that the automated checkout product will be a key contributor to the future market share and profit growth of UNIQUEST."
