Pauline Alker’s Counterpoint Computers Inc, San Jose, California now has definitive agreement to be acquired by Multitech Industrial Corp of Taipei, Taiwan. The plan is for Counterpoint, where AT&T Co, Kyocera Corp and British & Commonwealth Holdings Plc are currently investors, to operate under its present name and management as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Multitech. Ms Alker will report to Multitech president and co-founder Stan Shih. The two parties began working together in October 1986 when Multitech signed a three-year OEM order for $20m of Counterpoint’s System 19K 68020-based Unix computers as the basis of transaction-oriented small business systems for Taiwan. Manufacturing is currently done by Avex Electronics in Huntsville, Alabama but will be supplemented over time by Multitech, a $300m group. Counterpoint expects to become profitable during the first quarter of 1988. Multitech inter alia builds Unisys’ new Personal Workstations.
