COUNTERPOINT COMPUTER AGREES TO BE ACQUIRED BY MSC GROUP OF TAIWAN

Counterpoint Computer Corp, the Unix workstation and systems builder where AT&T Co, Kyocera Corp and Brit-ish & Commonwealth Ltd are investors, has agreed to be acquired by its biggest reseller, MSC Group of Taiwan. MSC is best known for its Multitech Electr-onics Inc subsidiary in Sunnyvale, California, one of the first companies to offer an 80386-based AT-alike. The agreement is revealed in this week’s Computer Systems News, which notes that the acquisition is subject to agreement of Counterpoint’s existing hold-ers. The company raised $19m in venture capital and looked well set when it won AT&T as an early OEM customer for its 19K workstation, for use as the basis of a desktop publishing system. But AT&T dropped the plan and can- celled the order, since when Count erpoint, founded by Pauline Alker from Convergent Technologies, has found the going somewhat sticky.
