Two New Facilities Planned as Global Expansion Continues

ROUND ROCK, Texas, -- ROUND ROCK, Texas, April 1, 1999 -- Dell Computer Corporation (Nasdaq: DELL), the world's leading direct computer systems company, today announced U.S. expansion projects to support the growth of its North American business including construction of two new Central Texas facilities and expansion of some operations to a new location in the Nashville, Tenn., area.

New Central Texas expansion projects planned for this year include a 300,000 square-foot manufacturing facility and a 325,000 square-foot office building on the company's Northeast Austin site. These are in addition to three Dell office buildings currently under construction in Round Rock and will bring to five the number of buildings underway or completed by Dell in Central Texas in 1999. Collectively, these projects will support up to 5,000 additional jobs.

The facilities are needed to support continued growing demand for Dell products and services in North America. The total occupancy of Dell's 1999 Round Rock construction projects is estimated to be approximately 3,400 employees, including sales and technical support employees and research and development teams. About 1,700 employees will occupy the company's new Northeast Austin office building. Construction of the two new facilities is to begin in the first half of this year and will bring Dell's total Central Texas employment to more than 21,000 people.

Dell's growth has an increasingly significant impact on the Central Texas region. According to economists, Dell's direct and indirect impact is currently more than $5 billion and 50,000 jobs. In 1998, Dell hired 4,000 new employees in Central Texas and economists estimate that more than 60 percent of all new jobs created in the region last year were attributable to Dell. In total, Dell's economic output is estimated to represent 14 percent of the regional economy.

Separately, Dell also announced it is seeking an additional U.S. location in the Nashville area to support the demands of its business. These new U.S. projects continue Dell's global expansion, which includes the announcement or completion of five manufacturing facilities worldwide over the last 16 months. Among the new facilities are two in Ireland, and one each in China, Brazil and the United States.

"This is the right time for Dell and Central Texas to expand our thinking about growth that is in the best interest of our company and community," said Kevin Rollins, Dell vice chairman, who credited Central Texas leaders for working with Dell to manage its growth. "Austin and Round Rock have been very supportive of Dell and we look forward to continuing this collaboration as we grow our business in Central Texas and around the world."

"Dell has helped establish this area's reputation as a world-class center for technology and innovation," said Austin Mayor Kirk Watson. "And Dell has worked in close partnership with the greater Austin community to manage growth so that it is good for the company and for the region. We see this announcement as a continuation of this partnership."
