------------------------------------------------------------------------
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 9, 1998-- American Multiplexer Corporation (AMC) (OTC BB:AMUT) announced today that it has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Pioneer Communications Pte Ltd., a Singapore-based company.

AMC has appointed Pioneer as its exclusive sales and marketing agent in the Far East. According to the MOU, Pioneer will purchase 1,000,000 shares of AMC stock at $4.50 per share. Pioneer has also agreed to buy an additional 1,000,000 shares within the next 12 months. Pioneer will purchase the additional shares directly from the company or in the open market at a maximum of $8.00 per share. AMC intends to use the proceeds from the initial Pioneer purchase for marketing and sales.

AMC has developed a unique digital subscriber loop (DSL) called DigiCop(TM), which enables transmission of both voice and data over conventional copper telecommunications lines. In the following weeks, Pioneer will demonstrate DigiCop to three major companies in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.

"DigiCop offers these companies a unique solution to DSL service without the risk of premature commitment to a technology that may not be adopted as a standard," said Edward Tan, president and CEO of AMC. "In addition, AMC is in discussion with telephone companies in the United States and Canada."

AMC estimates that DigiCop will work on 80 percent of the existing telecommunications and data networks. This new product can operate from 64 kbps to 2 mbps without the use of a modem, and allows simultaneous digital and voice traffic on the same line.

The DigiCop technology is protocol independent. It allows telephone companies to offer a high-speed digital Internet service at an affordable price to their subscribers. Telephone companies can purchase DigiCop at a nominal cost because it is easy to install and requires no expensive central office equipment. More over, it offers maximum flexibility for expansion to higher bandwidths.

Doug,
interesting news coming up: biz.yahoo.com
Seems to be that AMUT became a SAT-based ISP now. SAT-comm products to be expected soon, also fully ADSL compliant solutions. With their history as a low-cost solution provider this could really rock the bank <g>..

Company Press Release

American Multiplexer ''AMC'' Introduces High Speed Internet Access Via Satellite for Corporate, Government and Institutional Users

Download Video or Data at Speeds Up to 32 Mbps and Send at 384Kbps -- True Throughput

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 24, 1998-- American Multiplexer Corporation (AMC), (OTC BB:AMUT) recently acquired the assets of SatCom Media Corporation, a Santa Clara-based company that invested $10.5 million over the past 2 years in the development of an advanced satellite communications network called SatExpress.

The network is ideally suited for high-speed Internet access and applications such as corporate training, telemedicine, distance learning, engineering collaboration or multimedia communication between geographically disbursed locations.

SatExpress is the first commercially available Network to integrate entertainment broadcast technology with two-way satellite communications. Capabilities previously available only to large multinational companies will be available to small and medium size companies. SatExpress allows you to set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) at a fraction of the cost large companies invest in their private networks.

The user installs a compact satellite terminal (SatPort) which includes antenna and indoor unit that will interface directly with your existing LAN Ethernet TCP/IP enterprise network. SatPort communicates directly via satellite from your facility to the Network Operating Center or Hub, which is integrated with existing satellite and land based networks.

The SatExpress Network Operating Center (NOC) will store and distribute Internet and other content as well as provide billing operations. This capability will enable AMC to participate in service revenue as well as sell proprietary hardware. SatExpress compliments the AMC product line by offering high-speed satellite services to corporations, Government and institutional users in addition to the wireline products currently available in the consumer market.

Since 1991, AMC, under the name Temasek Telephone Company, developed and sold wireline products that increase the services available to home and Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) users, without upgrading the existing phone lines. The MUX-6 card increases your line capacity to 6 phone lines for each line coming into your facility. The DigiCop-1 provides a Symmetrical Digital Subscriber Line (SDSL), 115Kbps service over existing copper lines. Future wireline products will be fully Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) compliant.

The SatCom acquisition significantly increases the net tangible assets of AMC. Previous valuations of SatCom Media had been in the $100 million dollar range, determined in discussions with major satellite communications companies.

The AMC strategy is to establish Strategic Alliance Partners (SAPs) with competitive Local Exchange Carriers, ISPs and Teleport Operators in the U.S., and with the PTTs internationally. The SAP will own and operate the Network Operating Centers (NOCs).

SatExpress is still in the development stage, however, beta site discussions are in progress with several potential NOCs in the U.S., Asia and Europe. It is expected that a fully operational satellite network capability will be demonstrated through selected beta sites in 1999.

Information in this press release, other than that of historical fact, is based on development schedules and projections that involve substantial risk and uncertainties. Reference is made to the Company's Annual Report for the year ended December 1997 and to other documents filed in compliance Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations for a discussion of such risks and uncertainties and other factors that may have a material effect on the Company's business.

Darrell,
recent price movement is I'm sure relating to SATCOM acquisition. Ok here's the link: satcommedia.com
I like this. A unique niche for AMUT. Global alliance with ORCL. Big growth to come.

What's even better here is this. Reportedly they purchased the ASSETS of satcom, not Satcom itself. A friend of mine (a CPA) told me this is the preferred method, much cheaper for the acquirer. What did they pay ? Well there's an indirect clue inside the text. Remember, AMUT has authorized 25 million shares of which 19million were issued. Well, the 5 million difference would eventually make a good payment for Satcom. That's what I think about it - it's a guess for sure but there are clues out there..

best regards
CROSSY

Well,
I sold my AMUT near $5 capturing a nice 100% gain. My basic feeling hasn't changed: It's one of the better quality OTC companies (now I think they are on the PinkSheets until the filings are current). But sometimes you have to know when it's enough <g>

best regards
CROSSY

BTW: I changed my strategy somewhat and started looking for undervalued NASDAQ companies with lot of cash and a low price/book and price/sales ratio. Loaded up on AMLJ and LPWR before they started moving. Both still cheap..
