Novell denies non-compete agreement with SCO

The SCO Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer Darl McBride is incorrect in his contention that his company has a non-compete agreement with Novell Inc.
that will be violated if Novell completes a planned acquisition of SuSE Linux AG, Novell said in a written statement Tuesday.

"Mr. McBride's characterization of the agreements between Novell and SCO is inaccurate," Novell said. "There is no non-compete provision in those
contracts, and the pending acquisition of SuSE Linux does not violate any agreement between Novell and SCO."
