Jean-Louis Gassee Leaves Be, Inc.

(January 01, 2002)
Be Incorporated announced the resignation of its President and CEO, Jean-Louis Gassee. Following the completion of the sale of Be's intellectual property assets to Palm, Inc., the company has been pursuing activities mainly related to winding down the business and dissolving the company as approved by stockholders at the November 12, 2001 special meeting. The Board of Directors has appointed Dan Johnston, Be's General Counsel, to serve as President during the dissolution process.

"This is the normal progression of events in a company that is winding down and dissolving," said Gassee. "Mr. Johnston is best positioned to guide the company through the intricacies of the statutory dissolution process, and to help the Board determine whether an Antitrust suit against Microsoft is both viable and serves to maximize stockholder value."
