                                ATTACHMENT III

     ChatCom, Inc. (the "Company") is continuing to experience liquidity
problems which has caused a delay in preparing financial statements for the
quarterly period ended June 30, 1998. For the foregoing reason, the Company
requires additional time to prepare its quarterly report on Form 10-QSB for the
quarterly period ended June 30, 1998.

                                 ATTACHMENT IV

      It is anticipated that a significant change in results of operations from 
the quarterly period ended June 30, 1997 ("the first quarter of fiscal 1998") 
will be reflected by the earnings statement to be included in the Quarterly 
Report on Form 10-QSB for the quarterly period ended June 30, 1998 ("the first 
quarter of fiscal 1999") due to a reduction in net sales during the first 
quarter of fiscal 1999 as compared to first quarter of fiscal 1998 caused 
primarily by a decrease in shipments to the Company's Singapore distributor as a
result of the Asian economic crisis in the later half of 1997. The Company is 
expected to record a net loss of approximately $1,129,000 for the first quarter 
of fiscal 1999 on net sales of $915,000 as compared to a net loss of $585,000 on
net sales of $4,459,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 1998.
