Corporate Background

eMachines, one of the world's fastest growing and most efficient PC makers,
was acquired by Gateway, Inc. in March 2004 for $262 milllion in cash and
shares. It remains a stand-alone brand that is sold through leading
retailers and catalog and online merchandisers in the U.S. and selected
markets abroad.

Since its launch in 1998, eMachines has shipped more than five million
systems. It was the second-largest vendor of desktop PCs sold through U.S.
retailers and has a rapidly growing notebook business.

Internationally, eMachines' low-cost, full-featured systems are sold in
Japan and the UK, with further expansion into Western Europe planned soon.

Wayne Inouye, who joined eMachines in 2001 and quickly turned it from a
money losing business into one of the world's fastest growing brands,
currently serves as CEO of Gateway.
