 "This is our first entry into a major convenience store chain," said Javelin 
 Systems President and Chief Executive Officer Richard P. Stack. "While this 
 sector of the retail industry offers tremendous potential, it is a highly 
 competitive arena for POS computer suppliers. I believe our win in this market 
 is based on the Company's ability to provide innovative open system POS 
 computers and an end-to-end solution to the management of White Hen Pantry."

 "The first step in our technology upgrade was the selection of an extensive 
 suite of software that met our point of sale and back office business 
 application needs," said White Hen Pantry's Senior Director of Systems 
 Solutions James J. Walz. "Our second step was to select a business partner that 
 could supply open system POS computers and provide the necessary experience to 
 deploy, install and support a comprehensive solution in all 300 of our 
 convenience stores. After a lengthy evaluation of major POS vendors we selected 
 Javelin Systems and their subsidiary, CCI Group. The Javelin Wedge POS computer 
 offered the best price:performance available in the industry and with CCI's 
 reputation and experience we were confident of their ability to provide a total 
 systems solution quickly, efficiently and on time."

 According to CCI Technology Group President and Chief Executive Officer Robert 
 D. Nichols, a typical store installation will consist of multiple Javelin Wedge 
 Pentium-based POS computers configured with an integrated Ethernet controller, 
 SymbolTech scanners, Epson printers, and WeighTronix scales. The systems will 
 be networked to a back-office PC server communicating seamlessly, via a wide 
 area network, with White Hen Pantry's headquarters in Chicago. CCI will be 
 managing the entire project along with providing systems integration and 
 installation as well as on-going technical services and support -- an end-to-
 end solution designed to coordinate with the user-training program from White 
 Hen Pantry.
