      Press Release
      Adaptec Reports First Quarter Profits
      of $51 Million
      Revenue $192 million
      MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 22, 1999--Adaptec,
      Inc. (Nasdaq:ADPT - news) today announced financial
      results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2000 which
      ended June 30, 1999.

      Actual net revenues for
      the first quarter were $192 million. Actual net
      income was $51 million. Actual diluted earnings per
      share were $0.46. Excluding the gain on the sale of a
      piece of property, EPS would have been $0.44.

      Adaptec attributed the healthy first quarter to continued
      strong demand for the company's RAID and host I/O
      products, which provide reliable information access for a
      variety of Internet, e-business, and server applications.
      The demand is fueled by the growth of servers, and
      strong global product acceptance and market expansion.

      Normalized(1) ((1) see editorial addendum) operating results
      for the first quarter and comparative quarters were:


      -- Net revenues of $192 million, up
      32% from net revenues of $146
      million in the
      first quarter of fiscal year 1999 and up 8%

      sequentially from net revenues of $178 million in the
      quarter of fiscal year 1999
      -- Net income of
      $48 million, up 250% from net income of $14
      in the first quarter of fiscal year 1999 and up
      19% sequentially
      from net income of $40 million
      in the fourth quarter of fiscal
      year 1999
      Diluted earnings per share of $0.44, up 267% from
      earnings per share of $0.12 in the corresponding
      quarter last
      year, and up 22% sequentially from
      diluted earnings per share of
      $0.36 in the fourth
      quarter of fiscal year 1999

      ``Our first quarter
      results demonstrate the excellent alignment of our
      products to the needs of the market and to our customers'
      roadmaps,'' said Bob Stephens, president and chief executive
      officer of Adaptec. ``Host I/O, RAID, and CD-R software
      all offer solid growth potential and favorably
      position Adaptec for the future.''

      Business Update

      During the first quarter, Adaptec's host I/O business
      showed strong demand among OEMs and in distribution
      channels. Adaptec was the first to offer OEMs the world's
      fastest storage technology with the introduction of
      Ultra160 SCSI. In early July, Adaptec announced that
      Compaq Computer Corporation selected the company's
      Ultra160 SCSI products for its high-end desktop and
      workstation line, underscoring Adaptec's market leadership.

      Adaptec's RAID products offer industry-unique features and
      functionality including powerful, sophisticated RAID software
      and 160 MB/sec. performance. They continue to command
      a lead in unbranded ``white box'' servers in the
      distribution channel. Adaptec's RAID strength is validated by
      a recent design win at Micron Electronics.

      Adaptec's CD-RW software remains a global favorite among
      manufacturers and end users. The company debuted its new Easy
      CD Creator version 4.0, adding new Internet features
      (such as MP3 capability) to the product. Adaptec's
      exclusive marketing relationship with (announced on
      April 27, 1999) and the huge interest in
      Web-downloadable music give Adaptec an edge in the world of
      Internet music.

      On July 9, Adaptec announced that
      it acquired CeQuadrat of Aachen, Germany in a cash
      deal valued at approximately $25 million. This
      acquisition offers the company a new European CD-RW software
      center and will strengthen its development, marketing,
      sales, and support efforts for CD-RW software in that

      In corporate news, Adaptec appointed
      Robert Schultz the company's new chief operating
      officer. Schultz comes to Adaptec from Compaq Computer
      Corporation where he most recently held the position of vice
      president, Server Storage Business Unit, Storage Products
