SAN JOSE, Calif. -- June 18, 1999 -- Cisco Systems, Inc. today announced it has completed the acquisitions of Fibex Systems of Petaluma, California and Amteva Technologies, Inc. of Glen Allen, Virginia.

On April 8, 1999 Cisco announced a definitive agreement to acquire Fibex, a pioneer in Integrated Access Digital Loop Carrier (IADLC) products and devices that combine traditional voice services with data services using ATM as the underlying architecture. The transaction will be accounted for as a pooling of interests.

On April 28, 1999 Cisco announced a definitive agreement to acquire privately-held Amteva Technologies, a leading developer of middleware, which provides a unified means for enabling voicemail, fax and e-mail messages over an Internet Protocol (IP)-based network. In connection with the acquisition, Cisco Systems expects a one-time charge against after-tax earnings of between $0.02 and $0.07 per share for purchased in-process research and development expenses in the fourth fiscal quarter of 1999.
