Press release documenting that the business graphics market was still in its infancy. Among the then 11 million users of IBM personal computers and compatible systems, only an estimated nine percent use graphics software packages. Industry estimates also indicated that only 20 percent of those who need presentation graphics -- primarily managers and professionals -- had purchased PC graphics software, resulting in a tremendous market potential. Donated by Ed Esber. 6 scanned pages.
