  Slough, Berkshire, 10th May 1993.
                     
  Atari Corporation is pleased to announce the appointment of ION Finland Oy 
                     
  as its official full products Distributor in Finland.
                     
                     
                     
  Negotiations were held before and during Cebit '93 Fair in Hanover with
                     
  a number of interested parties. ION emerged as the clear choice.
                     
                     
                     
  Mr Paul Welch, Atari's International Distributor Manager, commented,
                     
  "ATARI has a strong product range which the Finnish market should respond
                     
  well to."
                     
                     
                     
  "As well as the first personal multi-media system - the Falcon 030, ATARI
                     
  also offers the highest technical specification hand-held console: the
                     
  Atari Lynx, and also delivers possibly the lowest entry cost video game 
                     
  console with its VCS range."
                     
  
                     
  "We want our Distributors to make a strong commitment in a highly 
                     
   professional manner. Mr Lauri Valjakka, a former executive of INFO,
                     
   fulfils the criteria that we sought."
                     
                     
                     
  ION Finland Oy will be in charge of all Atari products sold via 
                     
  distribution channels.
                     
                     
                     
  In addition, SLO Viestinta (Engineering Division) will supply Falcon 030
                     
  to the specialist professional audio and video market.
                     
                     
                     
  No other companies are permitted to represent Atari's interests in
                     
  Finland.
