Telelogic sells off the Components Division MALMÖ, Sweden - August 20, 2002 - Telelogic, (Stockholm Exchange: TLOG), the leading global provider of solutions for advanced systems and software development, today announced that it has succesfully concluded the negotiations with a British partner to sell off Telelogic's Component Division. The agreement covers the IP rights, the customer base and the employees at the UK operations of the component business. The deal will during a 12 month period have a significantly positive impact on Telelogic's consultancy margins but has a marginal effect on the result for the current year. "The market conditions for 3G components have changed over time and, today, practically all new development in this area focus on dual mode technology. Over time, new sales in this area will also require solutions that incorporate hardware designs. Telelogic has successfully created a component business around UMTS. We have two of our core technologies, SDL and TTCN well incorporated within this area. But to date, our UMTS stack component has only been sold in Japan. In light of the current market situation within the telecommunications sector, and the fact that we recently launched a japanese version of our DOORS product, we recognise the need to focus our sales resources in Japan. We therefore decided to find an external solution for our components business", said Anders Lidbeck, president and CEO for Telelogic. "This deal was important to Telelogic and it is great for our Components customers and our employees working in this area as the buyer has a very clear dual mode strategy", concludes Anders Lidbeck. The component division has during the last year employed approx. 30 consultants. The staff in the United Kingdom will be offered continued employment with the buyer while the employees of the component division in Norway are not part of the agreement and are on notice to leave.
