Gilbert) Subject: Atari merger with JTS Date: 8 Mar 1996 11:32:50 GMT I figure everyone knows this, but it is worth posting anyhow. In late Feb. '96, some financial officer of Atari Corp. announced that Atari was proposing a merger with JTS. JTS officers would control Atari (i.e. the Tramiels would not be in control of Atari). Atari stock would represent 60% of the merged company, meaning, I guess, that Atari stockholders would be the majority in the newly merged company. JTS biggies are Tandon and Seagate guys (the 'T' and 'S' in JTS, I guess.) I don't know if JTS still makes Tandon and Seagate drives, I don't think so. Atari stock on the AMX went up following the announcement some. >From about 2 to a little over 3 in a few days. There is no idea what JTS would do with Atari, at least as far as I know. It seems the Tramiels are trying to the best they can for Atari stockholders, as the stock did go up after this. Atari Games video arcade is a separate company. Now, there are probably copies of official announcements which could be informative, and I did some guessing, but I think what I said is basically correct and that this info is Atari news. Article 439 of freenet.sci.comp.atari.news: From: Stewart Edward Huffman <email@example.com> Subject: MIST AtariFest VII in Indy JULY 13 Date: 13 Apr 1996 21:51:20 GMT New date for MIST, the Mid-Indiana AtariFest for an 8th year, is July 13. The town is full of racers and auto buffs, and there's hardly a sleeping room to be had later in the month ... so MIST is July 13. Same place ... two ballrooms at the Best Western Waterfront Plaza Hotel ... and room to spread out the merchandise as well as the crowd. Last year's event attracted nearly 350 ticket-buying Atarians (almost as many as the year before, although it may not have looked that way since we were not so crowded). Charlie Sears is ready to take table reservations, and he might be enticed to get you a special spot if you call early and pay up early: Call his home at 317.535-4829 or leave him mail on his Crossroad/MIST BBS at 317.535-1643 or 317.780.5473 (FidoNet 1:231/310.0 and AtariNet 51:203/8). You can reply to me here at firstname.lastname@example.org (and I do intended to get back on GEnie, assuming it continues to be the Atari Place to Be ... but I have been playing the WWWeb Games a lot lately). Hotel rooms will be scarce even on July 13, the Best Western people tell us, but they agreed to give us a deal about $5 more than last year: $55 Single or $61 Double ... but you MUST RESERVE the room JUNE 12 -- 30 days in advance of the MIST Fest to get that rate (and probably to get a room at all). To get the rate, DO NOT call Best Western's 800 number; you must call the Indianapolis hotel itself and make the reservation with the Conference Staff. If you call at night or on a weekend, leave a message for them to call you back. They do that. The Indianapolis phone number is 317.299.8400 and the ConferenceStaff extension is x393. It's not a bad place to stay, as you know, even if the restaurant leaves something to be desired some years. The indoor pool is nice and there are several franchise restaurants nearby, as is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Indianapolis Raceway Park. What else? We anticipate an incremental increase in our costs, but nothing dramatic. We will get contracts in the mail real soon now. E-mail me with any changes in address you suspect might delay mail in the Postal Service. There are too few of us to let anyone get lost or strayed. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Stu Huffman, Indiana Dept. of Education: email@example.com US Snail at Home: 610 Artist Drive, Box 1215, Nashville, IN 47448-1215 At Work: State House 229, Indianapolis, IN 46204-2798 Office Voice: 317.232.6618 FAX: 317.232.6618 Home Voice: 812.988.7558 (Indianapolis is always Eastern Standard Time, Never on Daylight Time) * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Article 440 of freenet.sci.comp.atari.news: From: aa700@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Michael Current) Subject: Atari/JTS Merger, wire report Date: 20 Apr 1996 20:37:44 GMT By Mike Langberg, San Jose Mercury News, Calif. Knight-Ridder/Tribune Business News Feb. 14--Atari Corp.'s long, strange story took another odd twist Tuesday as the Sunnyvale video company announced plans to merge with JTS Corp., a start-up manufacturer of computer hard-disk drives in San Jose. Once the deal is completed in May or June, the combined company will take the JTS Corp. name -- although Atari Corp. will continue in business as a subsidiary manufacturing the Jaguar video-game system and developing personal computer games. Atari shareholders will own 60 percent of the merged company. Atari Chairman Jack Tramiel and his family now hold 42 percent of Atari stock, so they'll get 25 percent of the new entity. But Tramiel, who took control of Atari in 1984, won't be the boss. He'll take a seat on the board of directors, while JTS will continue to be managed by two disk-drive industry veterans: Chairman Jugi Tandon and President Tom Mitchell. Tramiel and his son Sam, now Atari's president, will continue to run the video-game business for at least the immediate future. Atari has been nearly swamped by years of heavy losses, and the Jaguar has never become a credible force in the $6-billion-a-year video-game industry. Only 150,000 Jaguar units have been sold since the system's launch two years ago; Sony Corp., in comparison, has sold more than 500,000 of its Playstation units since their introduction in September. Despite its red ink, which includes a loss of $22 million on sales of just $12 million in the first nine months of 1995, Atari has always held onto considerable cash reserves and now has about $50 million in the bank. "We had a surplus of cash and I felt we needed to invest this cash in areas other than the game business," Tramiel said Tuesday. Atari may be trading one big risk -- the video game business -- for another. The disk-drive industry is huge, but constant pressure to make higher-capacity drives at lower costs has forced numerous companies into 4bankruptcy. Up front, Atari is providing an immediate bridge loan of $25 million to JTS; if the merger falls through, the loan will be converted into JTS stock that will be retained by Atari. Tramiel also denied persistent reports in recent weeks that Atari intends to sell its few remaining assets. The company has laid off almost its entire staff, and now functions with a skeletal crew of 30 people in Sunnyvale and 10 workers at an office in the United Kingdom. Atari was founded in 1972 by Nolan Bushnell, who invented the first video game -- "Pong." The company grew to become one of the biggest in Silicon Valley and was sold to the company that is now Time Warner Inc. before nearly collapsing in the early 1980s when consumers suddenly grew bored with video games. JTS, in contrast, is growing rapidly. The company was formed in February 1994 by Tandon, when he bought the assets of a defunct disk-drive company called Kalok Corp. Tandon had previously founded Tandon Corp. of Los Angeles, which made disk drives in the 1970s and early 1980s, then switched to making PCs. Tandon Corp. fell victim to the first big PC price war in 1992 and entered bankruptcy proceedings in early 1993. Tandon first met Tramiel in the 1970s, when Tandon Corp. supplied disk drives to Commodore, a computer company then owned by Tramiel. Mitchell, JTS's president, worked for Tramiel as Commodore's general manager in 1978 and 1979. He then left to help launch Seagate Technology Inc. of Scotts Valley, now the world's largest disk-drive producer. Mitchell left Seagate in 1991 to become president of Conner Peripherals in San Jose, then moved to JTS last year before Conner was acquired by Seagate. JTS, which has 160 employees in San Jose and 1,300 workers at a disk-drive production plant in Madras, India, is trying to convince laptop PC manufacturers to switch to a new type of hard disk. Laptop computers today use 2.5-inch diameter hard drives, which are more expensive to manufacture than the larger 3.5-inch drives that are common in desktop PCs. JTS is offering a compromise: a thin 3-inch drive that shares the low-cost manufacturing methods of 3.5-inch drives, while taking up no more space than thick 2.5-inch drives. The company has gotten an order from Compaq Computer Corp. of Houston, which is expected to ship laptops with the JTS drives by June. Compaq has also helped fund development work at JTS and has convinced another disk-drive manufacturer, Western Digital Corp. of Irvine, to start making a small number of 3-inch drives. But JTS still faces a considerable struggle in convincing laptop makers to switch to 3-inch drives. "It's my understanding Compaq's interest is still somewhat limited," said Robert Katzive, vice president of the research firm Disk/Trend Inc. of Mountain View. "Maybe there's room (for 3-inch drives), we'll just have to see." ----- FOR ONLINE SERVICES: Visit Mercury Center on America Online (keyword: MERCURY) or Mercury Center Web, the World Wide Web site of the San Jose (Calif.)

My name is Thomas (TJ) Ferreira and if you have not noticed lately in the Atari newsgroups that I have been posting notes about a possible new Atari based magazine that I may be producing. Here are the letters I have posted thus far: ************ #1 message * ************ Hello there folks! I am doing a little research and thought the newsgroups would be a great place to start. I have been toying with the idea for years to produce an Atari based magazine and would like to get some feedback from all you Atarians out there. Here in North America we do have (2) very fine Atari based magazines; Atari ST Informer from USA and Current Notes from Canada. I want to feel the waters and see if the current market would receive well a new and fresh look at an Atari based magazine. I have many very good, fun, and new ideas for this Atari magazine and am almost to the point of jumping aboard and joining the Atari magazine crowd. This magazine will mostly cater to the Atari computer line but will have some info for the gamers at heart. If you are one that currently subscribes to other Atari magazines and would most likey subscribe to a new magazine, I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!! Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org Just let me know your thoughts and if you truly believe you would be a potential subscriber. Thanks for help and look forward to many many responses. I would also love to hear from other Atari based magazines on there ideas and insights of the Atari magazine market. Thanks Again!!!! Thomas Ferreira ************* #2 Message * ************* I have had this message posted online for a couple days and have had a good amount of responses. If you have not responded so far my email about your ideas and thoughts of this new magazine, THEN I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU. I wish to hear your ideas and responses. Do you want to keep the Atari platform ALIVE and WELL?? Then respond and be heard. I want this magazine to happen for me, for you, for advertisers, and for all computer enthusiasts. This Atari platform is FUN and we have years of life left right now if we all work together. You never know, if we keep the ball rolling long enough, someone or some company may bring back the Atari concept! Would it not be great if someone acquired the rights to say the never release ST BOOK notebook that Atari was producing and revamp slightly for todays market!! I would buy one for sure. Anyway, I want to hear from you and need the further data to get the magazine going. EMAIL TODAY!!!!! Original Letter below...... I removed because you have above.... Anyway, as you can tell I am actively collecting data so I can make this possible venture a reality. Since you are still dealing with Atari product, do you believe you would be interested in this new magazine to: A.) Advertise B.) Subscribe C.) Sell Retail if you are a dealer D.) Make available to your user groups if you are part of a club E.) etc... I want to make sure enough readers and advertisers are out there for this new magazine. If you develop products, I would also like to discuss possible special subscription rates for your registered users. If they buy your product, they also get special rates on this new magazine, etc... Ideas like this so we can all benefit and keep the user informed. I have many dealer/developer ideas I would like to use when the time comes and would like to discuss.... Anyway, just pop me a note about your thoughts on this project and we will go from there.

Don Thomas @ Atari) REPLY TO: email@example.com SUBJECT: *VERY* LIMITED OFFER (5/10/96 - 5/31/96) AND WHILE SUPPLIES LAST REVISED: 5/15/96 12:00 PM Pacific Time Okay, it's May and I'm sniveling all over the office. The four T's think it's because I want to do another wacky sale, but it's actually because my hay fever symptoms are going ballistic. But, heck, if they want to believe I'm "dyin'" to instigate another frenzy on some cool Atari stuff, who am I to say otherwise. Right!? The excuse this time is that the warehouse has finally relocated (which they have) and they need to find ways to make room without stacking each and every box neatly from floor to ceiling (which they do). So what a wonderful opportunity to host a brand new sale to help them with their little (big) problem. Besides, we make people happy. So, with much ado, I have worked with Big Ray over at our warehouse and we have isolated some nifty thingos for you to ponder. THIS IS IMPORTANT. If you choose not to read and understand sale terms there's a BIG chance we will reject your order and someone else may beat you to some items you want. Please permit me to be blunt... GREAT PRICES, LOUSY SERVICE These items listed below are available at outstanding values and do NOT include personalized phone services such as phone orders or checking on shipments (until 15 business days have passed). Your order will be printed and entered and I will contact you ONLY if we determine one or more items cannot be fulfilled. All items are "as-is" and probably don't have boxes or instructions (all games have instructions although they may be photocopies). These are trade show returns, refurbs, store returns, reclaims, employee use items, media review returns, developer on-loan returns, etc. (Some new items may be mixed in for fun.) There are NO REFUNDS and the standard 90-day warranty will not apply.... BUT every item is guaranteed to work for a 30-day period or it will be replaced or repaired at Atari's option. Some of the items may have slight scratches or other small cosmetic packaging flaws. None are being sold under new conditions. All items are in limited quantity and subject to prior sale. It will be best to order by credit card so that we can adjust the transaction accurately if we are unable to ship everything requested. I cannot hold product for money orders to arrive. Okay, enough with the lawyer stuff already! Here's how to order... Send me an E-Mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org OR fax the information to 408/328-0909 NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE on these items.

Lynx with 4 (random)games $55 each / 2 for $80 Note: These are systems with 1 of 5 different prepacked software assortments. No, I cannot guarantee what titles or that more than one purchased system at this price will have different games. BLUE LIGHTNING DEMO CARDS... When Atari discovered that the chain stores we're not too good at keeping the Lynx turned on and "playing" something in their stores, Atari manufactured specially designed "ever-on" Lynx systems. The systems had the on/off button shorted out so that the system would automatically come on when the stores lights were turned on each day in the morning. To accompany those systems, Atari also provided special versions of BLUE LIGHTNING so customers could see a game in play on the Lynx no matter when they looked at it in the glass case. I have found a limited number of these demo cards. They are labeled as demos and the Blue Lightning game that plays on it is NOT interactive. No Lynx controls work with this cartridge. I can offer them to collectors for $5 each or $3 if the order totals $25 or more. A DIE HARD FAVORITE... Jaguar demo kiosk $150 plus $130 S&H These are the big, 200 lb. jobbers we take to trade shows. The ones I can sell are trade show returns and may have minor flaws (like a little sticky tape that comes off with lighter fluid). You have to provide the monitor and the Jaguar. The SC1435 is a perfect fit (No, I don't have any). The SC1224 works okay too, but you need to find a cable (or use ICD's CATbox <wink>). I have SC1224's listed below. If you have seen these things, you know how much fun it would be to own one. Perfect for bedrooms, rec rooms, the garage, or in the lobbies of professional offices where children could be entertained. If you haven't seen these things, then picture a cabinet that looks just like an arcade machine. Convenient shelf for small monitor and there's room for the Jaguar AND the CD-ROM (barely). OKAY WE DIDN'T SELL MANY LAST TIME (SO I LOWERED THE PRICE)... SC1224 color monitor $18 plus $20 S&H Don't be silly, it cost more to ship it. Of course you need one. NEW LOW BLOWOUT PRICE...

If you really want a BIG piece of Atari's 8-bit history, here's a chance to get some one-of-a-kind stuff that I want, but don't have space to store it. These go back to the Pac-Man days. I have 2 Ms. Pac-Man costumes (character costumes a la Disneyland, promotional events)and I have 2 ghost costumes. They look like they're in good shape with the exception of understandable warehouse dust and dirt. Three of the costumes are in original boxes. The good news is that we'll take only $100 each costume, but the bad news is that it costs another $100 S&H to ship. If you want these, we're talking refigerator size cartons, so you better have storage space and you WON'T be able to hide this purchase from the wife (significant other). First come, first serve, U.S. shipping destinations ONLY. FLASH UPDATE!!! As of 5/15/96, both Ms. Pacman and one of the ghost costumes have been sold leaving only one ghost. If you want this, submit your order soon. JAGUAR SNEAKS (AT THE END OF THE LIST)... Wolfenstein 3D $9 with any cart purchase at regular price Zool2 $9 with any cart purchase at regular price Bubsy $9 with any cart purchase at regular price Trevor McFur $9 with any cart purchase at regular price Raiden $12 with any cart purchase at regular price Dino Dudes $9 with any cart purchase at regular price Cybermorph $9 without any qualifying purchase Regular priced software must be purchased at same time.
