BBN Announces Third Quarter Results

            CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- April 23, 1996 -- BBN
        Corporation (NYSE:BBN) today reported revenues of $71.3 million for
        the third quarter ended March 31, 1996, a 37 percent increase over
        the $52 million for the same quarter in fiscal year 1995.  For the
        nine months ended March 31, 1996, BBN reported a 26 percent revenue
        increase to $195.7 million, compared to revenues of $154.9 million
        in the first nine months of last year.  

            BBN's Internet activities, which include managed Internet
        services and value-added services, and the network management
        contract with America Online (AOL), had third-quarter revenues of
        $20.6 million, a 402 percent increase over the $4.1 million of the
        third quarter of fiscal year 1995 and a 27 percent sequential
        increase over the $16.2 million of the second quarter of fiscal
        1996. For the nine-month period, revenue from BBN's Internet
        activities increased 384 percent to $47.4 million, compared to
        revenues of $9.8 million for the same period a year ago.  

            For the third quarter ended March 31, 1996, BBN reported an
        operating loss of $30.2 million, which includes a $20.7 million
        predominantly non-cash charge for the write-off of goodwill and
        other costs associated with the company's reorganization announced
        in January.  The operating loss for the comparable quarter of fiscal
        1995 was $5.6 million.  For the nine months ended March 31, 1996,
        the operating loss was $51 million, which includes the $20.7 million
        charge, compared to $12.2 million for the comparable period in
        fiscal 1995.  On March 31, 1996, BBN's cash and short-term
        investment balance was $72.5 million.  

            The net loss for the three and nine month periods ended March
        31, 1996 was $29.1 million and $45.7 million, respectively.  This
        compares to net income of $74.5 million and $70.7 million for the
        three and nine month periods ended March 31, 1995.  Net income for
        the fiscal 1995 periods includes a pre-tax gain of $105 million from
        the sale of the assets of LightStream Corporation in January 1995.  

            The net loss per share for the three and nine months ended March
        31, 1996 was $1.64 and $2.59, respectively, compared to net income
        per share of $4.11 and $3.96, respectively, in the comparable
        periods of fiscal 1995.  

            BBN's Internet activities had an operating loss of $8.6 million
        for the third quarter ended March 31, 1996, compared to an operating
        loss of $3.2 million for the same period a year ago and an operating
        loss of $6.9 million in the second quarter of 1996.  For the nine-
        month period, BBN's Internet activities had an operating loss of
        $23.5 million, compared to an operating loss of $5.8 million for the
        comparable nine month period of last year.  

            BBN's losses reflect continued investment in Internet-related
        infrastructure and the development of new value-added Internet
        services, as well as operating losses at BBN Domain and the write-
        off of goodwill and other costs.  BBN is accelerating the expansion
        of its national backbone network for its Internet operations in
        order to meet increasing demand.  


            During the third quarter, BBN began implementation of its plan
        to focus the depth and breadth of the company's internetworking
        skills and advanced technology on the fast-growing market for
        Internet services to businesses and organizations.  Among Internet
        service providers, BBN offers the industry's most comprehensive
        range of services targeting business requirements for internal and
        external use of the Internet.  

            BBN provides "industrial strength" services, such as managed
        Internet access; managed network security; managed web server
        hosting; plus systems integration and application development
        services for complete solutions, including integration of new
        Internet and intranet applications with companies' legacy systems.
        In addition, BBN is utilizing its advanced internetworking
        technology and skills to develop solutions to emerging needs for
        "bandwidth-on-demand,"  application security, and integration of
        "best-of-breed" software from industry leaders to enable electronic
        commerce applications over the Internet.  

            BBN continues to pursue funded research and development of
        advanced internetworking technologies, which will enable future
        internetworking capabilities for government and business.  


            BBN Chairman and CEO George H. Conrades said, "Our progress in
        growing our recurring revenue stream for Internet services and
        increasing our overall revenue justifies our continued investment.
        This progress reinforces my confidence in our strategy to focus our
        resources on the enormous opportunity for business and
        organizational use of the Internet."  

            BBN's Internet activities achieved significant growth and
        expansion milestones during the third quarter:

        -- A key metric of BBN Planet's progress is the "rent roll,"  which
        is the annualized recurring revenue from BBN Planet's business.  The
        rent roll grew by 24 percent in the third quarter to $41 million
        from $33 million in the second quarter of 1996.  

        -- BBN Planet reported 340 new, high-speed Internet access orders in
        the third quarter, a 45 percent sequential increase over the 235 new
        orders in the second quarter of 1996.  Today, BBN provides Internet
        services to more than 1,900 customers, with an average annual
        recurring revenue per customer of over $20,000.  

        -- Significant customers that signed up with BBN Planet during the
        quarter include the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Alex.  Brown &
        Sons, the City of Boston, National Semiconductor, Alliance BlueCross
        BlueShield and the Los Angeles Times.

        -- BBN now offers its U.S.-based multinational customers Internet
        connectivity through local access points in 20 countries, which it
        will soon expand to 220 countries.  This capability is an industry
        first, providing customers with a single source for consistent,
        worldwide Internet service.  

        -- BBN continues to expand its role in building, maintaining and
        operating a portion of the America Online nationwide, high-speed,
        dial-up network.  Approximately 40 percent of BBN's third-quarter,
        Internet-related revenue resulted from managing the AOL network, a
        significant portion of which consists of pass-through circuit costs.


            In the third quarter, BBN continued to develop relationships
        with key players in the Internet industry:

        -- BBN continues to work with AT&T to expand Internet services to
        businesses and organizations.  Tom Evslin, vice president of AT&T
        WorldNet(SM) Service, said, "Managed, dedicated access to AT&T
        WorldNet Service is an important part of AT&T's Internet strategy,
        and technology and ongoing support from BBN Planet continue to be
        significant to the success of this service.  When AT&T launched its
        managed Internet access service last June, BBN Planet's expertise
        and reputation for high quality helped us get the service to market
        quickly and convincingly.  That same reputation and know-how remain
        important advantages in making sales and keeping customer
        satisfaction high as we cooperate to expand this service."  

        -- BBN, Cisco Systems, Inc., and Intel Corporation demonstrated at
        the Networld+Interop trade show a standards-based Internet
        infrastructure for "bandwidth on demand"  that enables real-time
        multimedia applications for the Internet, including desktop
        videoconferencing, real-time audio, video and collaborative

        -- BBN successfully launched a pilot program with Continental
        Cablevision to provide cable subscribers in the Boston area with
        high-speed Internet access via cable.  

        -- BBN signed an agreement with CMG Information Services under which
        CMGI will license BBN's PINpaper(TM) intelligent agent technology
        for use in CMGI companies' Internet search products.  


            BBN Systems and Technologies is realigning its operations to
        better support BBN's Internet strategy with advanced internetworking
        R&D, and on pursuing certain network-centric opportunities in the
        commercial and government markets.  

            Mr. Conrades said, "We do work for the U.S. government to enable
        secure messages over sensitive Defense Department networks, and we
        recently signed a contract to provide the U.S. Army with wireless,
        Internetworking-based voice and video communications for mobile
        operations.  These and other activities have real-world application
        for the military and for commerce.  We believe that our advanced
        development capabilities at BBN Systems and Technologies provide us
        with the opportunity to commercialize next-generation Internet
        technologies -- a distinct advantage over other Internet service

            BBN Systems and Technologies, which now includes the activities
        of BBN Hark, reported increased revenues for the third quarter,
        compared to the same quarter of a year ago.  Operating results
        reflect losses at BBN Hark.  

        BBN DOMAIN

            BBN Domain continued to make progress aligning its costs with
        revenues.  BBN Domain reported third quarter revenues of $10.5
        million, and an operating loss of $.9 million, compared to revenue
        of $10.2 million, and a loss of $1.5 million for the same quarter a
        year ago.  

            Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, BBN Corporation is a
        leading provider of Internet solutions to businesses and
        organizations.  For its fiscal year ended June 30, 1995, BBN had
        revenues of $215 million.  For more information, visit BBN's World

Seagate reports third quarter loss reflecting merger-related
restructuring charges

            SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. -- April 23, 1996 -- Seagate
        Technology, Inc. (NYSE:SEG) today reported revenue, net loss and net
        loss per share of $2.09 billion, $157 million and $1.57,
        respectively, for the quarter ended March 29, 1996.  The results for
        the three months ended March 29, 1996 include charges totaling
        $314.1 million for restructuring costs and other non-recurring
        charges associated with the Company's merger with Conner
        Peripherals, Inc.  (Conner) on February 2, 1996, and one time write-
        offs of in-process research and development incurred in connection
        with the acquisitions of OnDemand Software in March, 1996 and the
        minority interest in Arcada Software, Inc. in February, 1996.  The
        restructuring costs totaled $241.7 million, the one time write-offs
        of in-process research and development totaled $52.8 million and the
        other non-recurring charges associated with the merger totaled $19.6
        million.  Without the restructuring charge, the write-off of in-
        process research and development and the non-recurring merger-
        related costs and their related tax effects, fully diluted net
        income per share for the three months ended March 29, 1996 would
        have been $0.71.  

            Revenue, net income and fully diluted net income per share for
        the quarter ended March 31, 1995 were $1.87 billion, $83 million and
        $0.76, respectively.  Revenue, net income and fully diluted net
        income per share for the immediately preceding quarter ended
        December 29, 1995 were $2.34 billion, $149 million and $1.26,
        respectively.  The decline in revenue from the immediately preceding
        quarter was primarly due to a delay in the introduction of new
        products, production delays caused by component shortages and a
        decline in the shipment of tape drives.  

            For the nine months ended March 29, 1996, revenue, net income
        and fully diluted net income per share were $6.57 billion, $112
        million and $1.06, respectively.  This compares with revenue, net
        income and fully diluted net income per share of $5.19 billion, $206
        million and $1.92, respectively for the nine months ended March 31,
        1995.  In addition to the $314.1 million of charges noted above, the
        nine months ended March 29, 1996 include a write-off of in-process
        research and development of $3.6 million in connection with a change
        in accounting for the Company's 25% investment in SanDisk from the
        cost to the equity method and a write-off of in-process research and
        development of $2.8 million in connection with the acquisition of
        Sytron Corporation.  

            The merger with Conner was accounted for as a pooling of
        interests, and accordingly all prior periods have been restated to
        reflect this transaction.  Prior periods also reflect other
        restatements, none of which were material to any period presented.  

            During the quarter ended March 29, 1996, $265.5 million
        principal amount of the Company's 6-3/4% convertible subordinated
        debentures were converted to 6.2 million shares of the Company's
        common stock and $1.1 million were redeemed.  

            Seagate Technology is a data technology company that provides
        products for storing, managing and accessing digital information on
        the world's computer and data communications systems.  Seagate, at
        $8.6 billion in revenue for its last twelve months ended March 29,
        1996, is the largest independent disc drive and components company

        firm invests in UDC

            PHOENIX, AZ -- April 23, 1996 -- Garth Wieger has been
        named chief executive officer of UDC Homes
, DMB officials
        announced Tuesday.

            Wieger has been Phoenix division president of Shea Homes for the
        past five years.  Under his leadership, Shea has become one of the
        top homebuilders in Phoenix growing from 276 closings in 1990 to
        1429 closings last year.

            The company also announced today that a partnership managed by
        Aldrich Eastman Waltch (AEW), a Boston-based real estate investment
        advisor, will become an equal partner with DMB in UDC Homes.  On
        behalf of institutional clients, AEW has invested in several Arizona
        real estate enterprises including Evans Withycombe Realty (NYSE:EWR)
        and the Westcor Co., as well as in a variety of public and private
        real estate operating companies throughout the country.  

            DMB acquired UDC Homes after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
        protection in 1995.  DMB is a Phoenix-based real estate developer
        whose projects include the 8,000-acre DC Ranch in Scottsdale, Ariz.,
        Superstition Springs in Mesa, Ariz., Centerpoint in downtown Tempe,
        Ariz., Phoenix Gateway Center at 44th Street and McDowell Road and
        The Financial Plaza in downtown Mesa.

            UDC is the third largest homebuilder in Phoenix.  In addition to
        its Phoenix operation, the company has operating divisions in
        Tucson, Ariz., San Jose, Calif., Los Angeles and San Diego.

            Drew Brown, president of DMB said, "We are delighted to have
        Garth assume the leadership role at UDC.  He brings extensive
        experience and demonstrated leadership abilities to the company."

            Wieger said, "With the recent acquisition of UDC by DMB and the
        financial strength brought to the organization, I am excited about
        this opportunity.  UDC has a strong presence in Phoenix, and we will
        work hard to build a team that has the same presence in each of
        UDC's three California divisions."

            Prior to heading Shea's Phoenix operation, Wieger was vice
        president of land acquisition and development for Continental Homes.
        He is a graduate of San Jose State University with a degree in
        business management.
