METROWERKS COMPLETES ACQUISITION OF LATITUDE PORTING TECHNOLOGY AND
ANNOUNCES NEW ADDITIONS TO MANAGEMENT TEAM

AUSTIN, Texas-March 10, 1997-Metrowerks Inc. (NASDAQ: MTWKF, TSE/ME:MWK),
one of the world's leading providers of software development tools, today
announced that it has officially acquired the principle assets of The
Latitude Group, Inc., of Mountain View, Calif., for the sum of $500,000
including acquisition costs.

Latitude's principle assets include a porting library which allows Mac OS
applications to be ported to UNIX-hosted operating systems. Metrowerks
intends to use the Latitude porting library to port CodeWarrior to run on
Sun Microsystems' Solaris-based UNIX workstations and Metrowerks will
retarget the porting technology to Apple Computer's next generation
operating system, Rhapsody. Sun's Solaris-based UNIX workstations are
widely used by embedded systems programmers worldwide.

Metrowerks has named David Hempling, former president and chief executive
officer of the Latitude Group, as Technical Lead for CodeWarrior Latitude.
Mr. Hempling was a co-founder of Quorum Software, the original developer of
Latitude, and has worked on making Latitude a reality for UNIX platforms
since the early nineties.
