Pierce International Acquires North American Software

On December 21, 1999, Pierce International (OTC BB Symbol "PRCI") completed its acquisition of the outstanding common stock of North American Software Associates, Limited (NAS) in exchange for 76.8 million shares of PRCI common stock.

NAS is an information technology company with a strong emphasis in Microwave and Fiber Optic Technology, Internet Service, Network Support Services, Remote Critical Data Storage and Information Technology Training. NAS owns Freedom 2000, the local Internet service provider, which connects the tri-state region of Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee.

NAS currently employs 21 engineers, technicians and managers. NAS's facilities are located in a new state-of-the-art 170,000 square feet office building located in the Tri-State Commerce Park in northeast Mississippi. This facility was built for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in 1993 to provide a physical plant for NASA's computer engineering of the advanced solid rocket booster project. The space program's budget cuts precipitated closure of this facility in 1996. The State of Mississippi took title to the facility in 1997. In January 1999, NAS entered into a 10-year lease of the facility with the State of Mississippi.

NAS is now expanding and upgrading its Mississippi facility to accommodate increased communication bandwidth capabilities through the use of fiber optics and microwave technology. The increased bandwidth will compliment the improved infrastructure and communication capacities of the NAS facility, and will provide a basis for additional expansion of the NAS businesses.

This former space administration facility was originally designed to provide high security for information storage needs. The facility's strategic location and secure environment provides NAS with a perfect location for remote critical online data storage for government and corporate applications. The facility has a complete dual power backup system including multiple diesel power generators servicing the entire computer complex.

Following the acquisition of NAS the management of PRCI resigned. The new president of PRCI is Robert R. Crawford. In addition, PRCI plans to change its corporate name to "North American DataCom". As a result of the acquisition of NAS there are now approximately 4 million publicly traded shares and 82 million restricted shares which are outstanding.

North American DataCom's new principal executive offices will be located at 751 County Road 989, Building 1000, Iuka, MS 38852. For further information, contact Investor Relations by telephone at (662) 424-5030, and by e-mail at invrel@nadata.com
