The undersigned registrant hereby amends Part III, Item 11 of its Annual Report
on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2000 as set forth below to correct
mathematical errors in the calculation of the percent of total options granted
to employees and the potential realizable value of stock options granted to the
executive officers in fiscal 2000.




     Non-employee directors and board advisors are compensated for their
services at a rate of $12,000 per year (plus expenses). Pursuant to the 1999
Non-Employee Director Stock Plan, as amended, each of our non-employee directors
received an initial grant of options to purchase 10,000 shares of common stock
at an exercise price equal to the initial public offering price ($5.00 per
share) in connection with the initial public offering. Also, pursuant to that
plan, each non-employee director and board advisor serving on the board of
directors following each annual meeting of stockholders will receive a grant of
options to acquire 3,000 shares of common stock at the market price on the date
of the grant. All non-employee directors are reimbursed for ordinary and
necessary expenses incurred in attending board or committee meetings.


     A summary of the compensation earned by the current President and Chief
Executive Officer of TrueTime, and the two other executive officers and one
former executive officer of TrueTime who received salary and bonus in the fiscal
years ended September 30, 2000 and 1999, that exceeded $100,000, these persons
being collectively referred to as "named executive officers." The following
compensation data includes bonuses awarded in fiscal 2000 for performance in
fiscal 1999.

Patnaik's base annual salary is $155,000 and Mr. Mitchell's base annual salary
is $150,000. These salaries may be adjusted by our board of directors. Each of
these employees is also entitled to participate in our 401(k) Plan and any bonus
plan the Company adopts and to receive certain employee benefits and vacation.

     Each of Ms. Withers' and Messrs. Patnaik's and Mitchell's employment
agreements provides that he or she will receive the severance benefits described
below upon termination of his or her employment unless the termination:

     - results from the death, disability or retirement of such employee,

     - is by TrueTime for Cause (as defined in the employment agreement) or

     - is by such employee other than for Good Reason (as defined in the
       employment agreement).

     Under these employment agreements, "Cause" is defined to mean the
employee's willful and continued failure to perform his or her duties after a
demand for such performance or the employee's willfully engaging in gross
misconduct materially and demonstrably injurious to TrueTime. Under these
employment agreements, "Good Reason" is defined to mean a demotion, a reduction
in base salary, a relocation of the employee's base location of employment, the
discontinuation of any employee benefit without comparable substitution, the
failure of any successor of TrueTime to assume the employment agreement or a
purported termination not in compliance with the employment agreement.

     The severance benefits to which Ms. Withers or Messrs. Patnaik or Mitchell
would be entitled include

     - his or her salary through the date of termination,

     - his or her base salary and pro-rated bonus for the fiscal year of
       termination multiplied by one and one-half,

     - any relocation and indemnity payments to which he or she is entitled and
       any costs and legal fees incurred in connection with any dispute over the
       employment agreement, and

     - a gross-up for any applicable "excess parachute payment" tax imposed on
       the employee by the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.

     Each employment agreement has a two-year term and is automatically
renewable unless the Company timely elects not to renew. In these employment
agreements, each of Ms. Withers and Messrs. Patnaik and Mitchell agree that he
or she will not disclose or misappropriate any of our confidential information.
These employment agreements also contain customary non-competition provisions
for a California-based enterprise and California employees, which are limited by
state law.
