Hollander(R) and Progi-Pac Settle Copyright Infringement Case, Enter Into Multi-Year Licensing Agreement

    SAN DIEGO, May 5 /CNW/ -- Hollander North America, Inc., a leading
supplier of business solutions for automotive recyclers, has reached a
settlement in its copyright infringement dispute with Progi-Pac, a Canadian
supplier of French-language management and parts-interchange software for
automotive recyclers.  Along with the settlement, the companies have also
entered into a multi-year licensing agreement.

    Properly licensed users of the Progi-Pac and Progi-Comm systems can have
confidence knowing that their software is now backed by direct access to
Hollander Interchange -- the industry's most comprehensive interchange data
source, which details which vehicle parts are interchangeable between foreign
and domestic cars and light trucks dating back to the 1920s.  Hollander will
continue to innovate and market its own comprehensive suite of business
solutions for automotive recyclers throughout Quebec and Canada.

    Francine Dupont, President of Progi-Pac, said, "Our customers rely on us
to deliver the solutions they need to run their automotive recycling
businesses.  By working directly with Hollander, we can ensure they have
access to all of the tools they need."

    John Kotsopoulos, Managing Director for Audatex North America, said,
"We're happy to put this issue behind us and we're exploring opportunities to
build upon this strategic relationship with Progi-Pac for the benefit of
automotive recyclers in Quebec and additional markets."
