Intel To Acquire Dialogic For Approximately $780 Million

Acquisition to Expand Intel's Server Business in Growing Communications Market Segment

SANTA CLARA, Calif., and PARSIPPANY, New Jersey, June 1, 1999 - Intel Corporation and Dialogic Corporation today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Intel would acquire Dialogic for $44 per share in an all-cash tender offer valued at approximately $780 million.

The acquisition is aimed at expanding Intel's standard-high-volume (SHV) server business in the multibillion-dollar networking and telecommunications market segment by providing industry vendors with standards-based hardware and software building blocks for integrated voice and data networks.

Dialogic is a global leader in standards-based computer telephony software, network interfaces and media processing boards that run on Intel-based servers. The company provides key building blocks and technical services that industry manufacturers, application developers and service providers use to develop value-added solutions for combined voice and data networks. Dialogic products are used in voice, fax, data, speech recognition, call center management, Internet Protocol (IP) telephony and enhanced services applications in both enterprise and service provider market segments.

"This merger strengthens Intel's position as a key supplier to the converging Internet and telecommunications industry," said Craig Barrett, president and chief executive officer of Intel. "Our goal is to make Intel-based servers the foundation of e-business and communications applications based on integrated voice and data networks."

"The merger benefits Dialogic and its customers by broadening our products and services to accelerate the emergence of high-value, open communications servers and solutions," said Howard Bubb, Dialogic's president and chief executive officer, who will join Intel as a vice president of the company's Enterprise Server Group and president of its Dialogic subsidiary.

Intel and Dialogic recognize a significant opportunity in providing the Internet and telecommunication industry segments with standards-based platforms for voice-enabled server applications. The companies will focus on expanding their combined business by bringing to the communications industry the benefits of SHV server platforms, including faster time-to-market, a broader selection of applications, and lower deployment costs.

Under the agreement, Dialogic will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel, reporting within Intel's Enterprise Server Group. Dialogic employees will continue as employees of the new subsidiary. The companies do not anticipate any immediate changes to their respective product lines, and Dialogic intends to deliver products to customers under existing agreements and to continue its existing manufacturing relationships.

"Intel and Dialogic share a technology vision and a commitment to standards that makes this merger a natural evolution for us both," said John Miner, Intel vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Server Group.

Pursuant to the agreement, a cash tender offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Dialogic common stock will be commenced by Intel on June 7, 1999, and will remain open until 12 o'clock midnight New York City time on Friday, July 2, 1999. The Board of Directors of Dialogic has approved the definitive agreement and has unanimously recommended that Dialogic stockholders tender their shares pursuant to the offer. Intel's obligations to accept shares tendered in the offer will be conditioned upon the tender of a majority of outstanding Dialogic shares on a fully-diluted basis, regulatory review and other customary conditions. Dialogic founders and board members holding approximately 33 percent of the outstanding shares have agreed to tender their shares in the offer. It is expected that all shares not purchased in the tender offer will be converted into the right to receive $44 per share in a second-step merger following the tender offer.

Dialogic Corporation (OTC:DLGC) was founded in 1983 and has 1,200 employees worldwide. The company is the leading supplier of a variety of award winning computer telephony products used by OEMs, application developers and communication service providers. The company had 1998 revenues of $294 million and has grown at an average compound annual growth rate of 25 percent in the past five years.
