MYOB Makes it Extra Easy for Small Businesses to Convert to AccountEdge
from Macintosh QuickBooks Pro Version 4

New MYOB conversion assistant is a quick 5 step process

March 21, 2001 (Rockaway, NJ) MYOB US, Inc. today announced the
availability of a data file conversion utility to help small businesses
move their old QuickBooks Pro Version 4 Macintosh data files to MYOB’s new
state-of-the-art small business accounting and management software, MYOB
AccountEdge. Now QuickBooks users who have been waiting the past 5 years
for an upgrade, or who want to update to newer Macintosh operating systems,
including OS X , have an award-winning accounting product and a simple,
free conversion utility to help them make the move.

The MYOB conversion assistant takes the user through 5 easy steps and will
convert all of their critical business information from QuickBooks to
AccountEdge without missing a beat. The MYOB Conversion Assistant will
convert Jobs, Inventory, Accounts and their balances, Customer, Vendor and
Employee information, Company Information, Shipping Methods, Terms, Tax
Codes, Open Invoices, and Open Purchases. The MYOB conversion assistant is
available as a free download, on CD for a minimal charge, and on the MYOB
web site at http://www.myob.com/us/qb. A QuickTime video demonstration of
how the conversion assistant works is also on the MYOB web site, along with
additional information.

To make it easier for QuickBooks Pro Version 4 users to convert to
AccountEdge, MYOB is offering a $100 mail-in rebate on the retail version
of AccountEdge through the end of April. AccountEdge normally retails for
$249. Small businesses can purchase MYOB AccountEdge from their favorite
Macintosh software reseller or directly from MYOB US, Inc. by calling
