CONCORD, Mass., January 28, 1993 -- Symbolics, Inc. (NASDAQ:SMBX)
announced today that it has filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the
Federal Bankruptcy Code.  Although progress had been made to financially

action was necessary to execute a reorganization plan for the Company.
It is the Company's intent to reorganize as quickly as possibly under
the Bankruptcy Code process with the goal of emerging from bankruptcy as
an economically viable company.

Symbolics plans to continue to serve its customers in the United States
and around the world without interruption during the reorganization.
Symbolics' UK subsidiary, Symbolics Ltd., has not filed for bankruptcy
protection and is conducting business as usual.

stated, "The Company has been constrained by the legacies of past
business decisions, particularly several long term leases, that have
