UNIX HOUSE MICROPORT INTERNATIONAL “IS ON THE BLOCK”

By CBR Staff Writer

Microport International Inc has been very quiet in recent months, in contrast to its software rivals The Santa Cruz Operation and Interactive Systems Corp, and now industry sources suggest the company is up for sale, and is likely to go to another software company. Microport, part-owned by troubled Televideo Systems Inc, Sunnyvale, California recently moved out of its Scotts Valley, California headquarters to an alternative building in San Jose, and has reportedly been losing staff. Company founder Chuck Hickey, now the head of new software house Unistar Software, admitted Microport was in a tough situation financially, but no further confirmation could be obtained. The company recently reduced prices on its run-time version of Unix System V/AT and System V/386 to the original prices of $150 in the US and UKP100 in the UK.
