Spector, Roseman & Kodroff, P.C. Files Class Action Suit Against Comdisco, Inc. - CDO

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, UNITED STATES

PHILADELPHIA, March 12, 2001 (PRIMEZONE) -- The law firm of Spector, Roseman & Kodroff, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against defendant Comdisco, Inc. ("Comdisco" or the "Company") on behalf of purchasers of the stock who purchased Comdisco, Inc. (NYSE:CDO) securities during the period from January 25, 2000 through October 3, 2000 (the "Class Period").

The Complaint alleges that Comdisco and certain of its officers and directors violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by making a series of materially false and misleading statements concerning the Company's operations and its Prism Communications Services subsidiary during the Class Period. The Complaint alleges that as a result of these false and misleading statements the price of Comdisco securities were artificially inflated throughout the Class Period causing plaintiff and the other members of the Class to suffer damages.

If you purchased Comdisco, Inc. securities during the Class Period, you may, no later than April 9, 2001, move to be appointed as a Lead Plaintiff in this class action. A Lead Plaintiff is a representative, chosen by the Court, that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 directs Courts to assume that the class member(s) with the "largest financial interest" in the outcome of the case will best serve the class in this capacity. Courts have discretion in determining which class member(s) have the "largest financial interest," and have appointed Lead Plaintiffs with substantial losses in both absolute terms and as a percentage of their net worth. If you have sustained substantial losses in Comdisco Networks Corporation securities during the Class Period, please contact Spector, Roseman & Kodroff, P.C. at classaction@spectorandroseman.com for a more thorough explanation of the Lead Plaintiff selection process. If you have relatively small losses, your ability to participate in any recovery will be protected by the Lead Plaintiff(s), and you need take no affirmative steps at this time.

Roseman toll-free at 888-844-5862 or via E-mail at classaction@spectorandroseman.com. For more detailed information about the firm please visit its website at http://www.spectorandroseman.com
