Tyler Technologies Declines to Participate in DemandStar.com Rights Offering
DALLAS, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Dallas-based Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that it does not intend to participate in the rights offering of DemandStar.com, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of H.T.E., Inc. (Nasdaq: HTEI). Today's announcement is in response to recent public inquiries and other statements disseminated publicly by independent third parties. Tyler said its decision is based in part on its concerns about the identity of management of HTE and DemandStar.com and resulting potential conflicts of interest by the common management, and the discriminatory structure of the rights offering between management of HTE and its stockholders.

Tyler also reported that it has abandoned its previously announced intention to propose to HTE management a business combination of the two companies, in light of HTE management's continued refusal to meet with Tyler and the continued losses being reported by HTE. Tyler stated that, as the largest stockholder in HTE, it intends to continue to consider, pursue, and attempt to present to HTE management and its stockholders all opportunities that will maximize value for all HTE stockholders, and reserves the right to propose some form of business combination if circumstances make it feasible.
