KAPLAN FOX & KILSHEIMER LLP FILES
SECURITIES FRAUD CLASS ACTION AGAINST
QUINTUS CORPORATION.

NEW YORK – November 21, 2000 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.KaplanFox.com) has filed a Class Action against Quintus Corporation and certain of the Company’s officers and directors in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.  The suit is brought on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased the common stock of Quintus Corporation (“Quintus”) (NASDAQ:QNTS) between November 15, 1999 and  November 15, 2000 inclusive (the “Class Period”).

The complaint charges Quintus and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued a series of false and misleading financial statements and press releases concerning Quintus's publicly reported revenue and net income. These materially false and misleading statements allowed the Company to engage in a number of acquisitions in which it acquired target companies for Quintus stock. Such acquisitions would have been impossible without the Company's artificial inflation of its stock price.

“On November 15, 2000, Quintus shocked the investment community when it announced that it would delay filing its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2000 pending completion of an “investigation of revenue and accounts receivable for that period.” The Company further stated that “among the issues under review is Quintus' statement, on October 17, 2000, that it had collected a receivable from an outsourcing company. Subsequent to that announcement, it has become unclear whether funds received by Quintus, apparently in satisfaction of that receivable, were in fact paid by or on behalf of the outsourcing company.'' The Company also announced that it had placed Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors Alan Anderson on administrative leave and had hired PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP to investigate these financial reporting matters. Upon the announcement of the “bad news,” the price of Quintus stock fell by 50% before NASDAQ halted trading in Quintus stock, requesting more information.
