million in cash. The acquisition will be accounted for as a purchase
transaction.

products not only complement our existing product lines, but also extend

business broadband networking sector. Farallon CEO and president, Richard
Maslana will assist Benesch in the transition.

Mr. King added, "We look forward to integrating Farallons team of highly
talented staff members and benefiting from Farallons 14 years of
experience in the market. This is yet another step in our efforts to

2000, Proxim announced its acquisition of Microlor, Inc. a leader in
developing unlicensed spread spectrum wireless technology. (See the news
release dated January 25, 2000.) In December 1999, Proxim announced its
acquisition of Wavespan, a developer of wireless broadband access
