KAPLAN FOX & KILSHEIMER LLP ANNOUNCES CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST OMTOOL, LTD.

NEW YORK - , Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP has filed a Class Action lawsuit against Omtool, Ltd. ("Omtool") (NASDAQ: OMTL) and certain of its officers and directors in the United States District Court for the District of  New Hampshire.  The suit is brought on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of Omtool between  August 8, 1997 and October 6, 1998, inclusive (the "Class Period").

 The Complaint charges Omtool and certain of its top officers and directors with violations of the securities laws and regulations of the United States.  The complaint alleges that the defendants knowingly or recklessly misled investors.  During the Class Period, defendants caused or permitted Omtool to issue and sell, by means of a public offering, 4 million shares (including over-allotments) of Omtool common stock at a price of $9 per share throughout the Class Period, which allowed the Company to report materially inflated revenue and earnings.

 After the IPO, Omtool's stock traded as high as $14-3/4 per share.  The Class Period ends on October 6, 1998, the day the Company stunned the financial community by announcing that its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 1998 would be poor and the stock declined to $1.6875 per share on the day following the disclosure.  Defendants' false and misleading statements artificially inflated the price of  Omtool common stock during the Class Period.

 Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of the Class and is represented by Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP, which has over thirty years of experience in prosecuting investor class actions and actions involving financial fraud.  For more detailed information about the firm you may visit our website at www.KaplanFox.com.
