Dear Valued Customers,

The SynTest tools (TurboCheck, TurboFCE, TurboScan, TurboBSD, TurboBIST, and TurboFault)
are year 2000 compliant as of January 1, 1999. The dates produced by our software tools comply
with four-digit explicit/implicit century rules. The license manager is FLEXlm, provided by another
company, Globetrotter. The FLEXlm License Manager also follows all rules and guidelines for year
2000 compliance. The tools run on SunOS and Windows NT, both of which vendors have told us
that they are
also Y2K compliant.

We hope to continue to serve you the rest of this year and into the next century.

Sincerely,

(s)Laung-Terng (L.T.) Wang, Ph.D
