Business Highlights

In Q4FYJuly98, Metrowerks made significant progress in penetrating its key
target markets: telecom/datacom and the consumer embedded market.

* Significant telecom/datacom sales in Q4FYJuly98 included major sales to
Newbridge Networks for use across their TDM Division, for their Test &
Measurement Group and for Cambrian Systems Corporation, a Newbridge

* In Q4, Metrowerks also made a significant follow-on sale to its most
important telecom customer to date, AG Communications Systems, a subsidiary
of Lucent Technologies.

In Q4FYJuly98, Metrowerks entered into its second licensing arrangement
whereby Metrowerks has granted a specific platform vendor exclusive license
and distribution rights to certain tools at a guaranteed minimum annual
rate. CodeWarrior was also chosen as the official tool chain for Nintendo
64 by Nintendo Japan, with CodeWarrior for Nintendo 64 expected to ship in

The Company reorganized its sales team effective August 1, 1998 to focus on
the significant OEM opportunities that exist for its CodeWarrior line of
products. Mr. David Perkins, formerly SVP Business Development & Sales, is
now SVP, OEM Licensing. Mr. Don Lindsay was promoted to VP, North American
Sales. Mr. Harald Lotz was hired to a new position, VP International Sales
and will join the company September 1, 1998. Mr. James Walker moves from VP
Operations to VP Inside Sales. This expanded sales team will be able to
focus their selling efforts immediately on the number of new or updated
CodeWarrior products that have been developed through the Company's heavy
investments in R&D, especially those made during the past two years.

In Q1FYJuly99, Metrowerks expects to begin shipping five new products
including CodeWarrior for VxWorks, CodeWarrior for Nintendo 64, CodeWarrior
for V8xx, Discover Programming for Motorola DSP and Solaris-hosted Java
tools. In addition, the company will ship new versions of existing products
including CodeWarrior Professional Release 4, CodeWarrior for PlayStation
Release 5 and CodeWarrior for PowerPC Release 4.

Also in Q1FyJuly99, Metrowerks expects to begin shipping a new product,
Metrowerks IMPACT, which is the result of an acquisition of the TracePoint
performance analysis tools technology from Digital Equipment Corporation.
Initially, Metrowerks IMPACT will include profiling and code coverage tools
for Windows x/86, while subsequent product releases will be ported to
embedded platforms.

"It's clear that the strategic changes in our product line over the past
two years have consumed a significant amount of our energy and capital,"
said Jean Belanger, Metrowerks' CEO and Chairman. "To be successful, we
needed to deploy a wide range of products which we have finally done. The
adoption of CodeWarrior by several established companies in the embedded
market is validating this deployment. With high quality products and a
restructured sales force, we are now in a position to execute on our sales
