BAKERSFIELD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 19, 1998--Furthering its

Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:MSTGC - news) today announced the sale of the
Wildcat! Interactive Net Server, Wildcat! BBS and Off-Line Xpress BBS
mail reader product lines to Santronics Software, Inc. of Homestead,
"The market has dictated where we focus our resources and talents.
Today's announcement is additional evidence of the new direction of
Mustang Software," said Jim Harrer, president and chief executive
officer of Mustang Software. "Over the past year our Internet Message
Center has exploited the emergence of e-mail as a widely accepted
communications medium by creating an e-mail management solution that has
received over a dozen best of show, editor's choice and product of the
year awards and has been purchased by Fortune 500 companies for the
purpose of deploying world-class e-mail customer service systems for
their enterprise." Under the terms of the agreement, Santronics will
immediately assume ownership and responsibility for the sale and support
of the Wildcat! Interactive Net Server, Wildcat! BBS and Off-Line Xpress
BBS mail reader product lines.
"We believe that this is a very positive development for current and
future Wildcat! customers. Santronics has been an active third-party
developer for the Wildcat! product lines since 1991 and has the
experience to support and continue the evolution of these products.
Wildcat! is now Santronics' primary focus -- a focus Wildcat! customers
should welcome," explained Mr. Harrer.
"We are very excited about the future of Wildcat!," said Hector
Santos, president and founder of Santronics Software. "As a developer
and Wildcat! sysop, Santronics is intimately aware of the new market
opportunities for the Wildcat! product line. Santronics plans to focus
all of its energy and attention, while working closely with current
Wildcat! customers, to dominate the BBS market."
