                              AMENDED AND RESTATED

                      AGREEMENT AND PLAN OF REORGANIZATION

     This AMENDED AND RESTATED AGREEMENT AND PLAN OF REORGANIZATION (the
"Agreement") is made and entered into as of April 8, 1996, by and between Atari
Corporation, a Nevada corporation ("Atari"), and JT Storage, Inc., a Delaware
corporation ("JTS").

                                    RECITALS

     A. Atari is in the business of designing, manufacturing and selling
computers, computer peripheral products and video games.

     B. JTS is in the business of designing, manufacturing and selling computer
peripheral products including mass storage computer disc drives.

     C. The Boards of Directors of JTS and Atari believe it is in the best
interests of their respective companies and the stockholders of their respective
companies that JTS and Atari combine into a single company through the statutory
merger of Atari with and into JTS (the "Merger") and, in furtherance thereof,
have approved the Merger.

     D. In connection with the Merger, among other things, the outstanding
shares of Atari Common Stock, $.01 par value ("Atari Common Stock"), shall be
converted into shares of JTS Common Stock, $.000001 par value ("JTS Common
Stock"), at the rate set forth herein.

     E. JTS and Atari desire to make certain representations and warranties and
other agreements in connection with the Merger.

     F. The parties intend, by executing this Agreement, to adopt a plan of
reorganization within the meaning of Section 368 of the Internal Revenue Code of
1986, as amended (the "Code"), and to cause the Merger to qualify as a
reorganization under the provisions of Section 368(a)(1)(A) of the Code.

     G. This Agreement amends and restates that certain Agreement and Plan of
Reorganization by and among Atari, JTS and JTS Acquisition Corporation dated as
of February 12, 1996.

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the covenants and representations set
forth herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the parties agree
as follows:

                                   ARTICLE I

                                   THE MERGER

     1.1 The Merger.  At the Effective Time (as defined in Section 1.2) and
subject to and upon the terms and conditions of this Agreement, a Certificate of
Merger prepared in accordance with Delaware Law (as defined herein) and Nevada
Law (as defined herein) and reasonably acceptable to counsel to JTS and counsel
to Atari (the "Certificate of Merger"), and the applicable provisions of the
Delaware General Corporation Law ("Delaware Law") and Nevada General Corporation
Law ("Nevada Law"), Atari shall be merged with and into JTS, the separate
corporate existence of Atari shall cease and JTS shall continue as the surviving
corporation. JTS as the surviving corporation after the Merger is hereinafter
sometimes referred to as the "Surviving Corporation."

     1.2 Closing; Effective Time.  The closing of the transactions contemplated
hereby (the "Closing") shall take place as soon as practicable after the
satisfaction or waiver of each of the conditions set forth in Article VI hereof
or at such other time as the parties hereto agree (the "Closing Date"). The
Closing shall take place at the offices of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati,
P.C., 650 Page Mill Road, Palo Alto, California, or at such other location as
the parties hereto agree. In connection with the Closing, the parties hereto
shall cause the Merger to be consummated by filing the Certificate of Merger
with (i) the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware and with the Recorder
of the County in which the registered office of JTS is located, in
<PAGE>   8

accordance with the relevant provisions of Delaware Law and (ii) the Secretary
of State of the State of Nevada, in accordance with the relevant provisions of
Nevada Law (the time of such filings being the "Effective Time").

     1.3 Effect of the Merger.  At the Effective Time, the effect of the Merger
shall be as provided in this Agreement, the Certificate of Merger and the
applicable provisions of Delaware Law and Nevada Law. Without limiting the
generality of the foregoing, and subject thereto, at the Effective Time, all the
property, rights, privileges, powers and franchises of Atari shall vest in the
Surviving Corporation, and all debts, liabilities and duties of Atari shall
become the debts, liabilities and duties of the Surviving Corporation.

     1.4 Certificate of Incorporation; Bylaws.

     (a) At the Effective Time, the Certificate of Incorporation of JTS, as in
effect immediately prior to the Effective Time, shall be the Certificate of
Incorporation of the Surviving Corporation until thereafter amended as provided
by Delaware Law and such Certificate of Incorporation; provided, however, that
the Certificate of Incorporation of the Surviving Corporation shall be amended
and restated in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A.

     (b) The Bylaws of JTS, as in effect immediately prior to the Effective
Time, shall be the Bylaws of the Surviving Corporation until thereafter amended;
provided, however, that the Bylaws of the Surviving Corporation shall be amended
and restated in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B.

     1.5 Directors and Executive Officers.  At the Effective Time, the directors
of the Surviving Corporation shall be Sirjang Lal Tandon, David T. Mitchell,
Jean D. Deleage, Alan Azan, Roger W. Johnson, LipBu Tan, Jack Tramiel and
Michael Rosenberg. The executive officers of JTS immediately prior to the
Effective Time shall constitute the only executive officers of the Surviving
Corporation as of the Effective Time, unless otherwise designated by JTS.

     1.6 Effect on Capital Stock.  By virtue of the Merger and without any
action on the part of JTS, Atari or the holders of any of the following
securities:

          (a) Conversion of Atari Common Stock.  At the Effective Time, each
     share of Atari Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the
     Effective Time (other than any shares of Atari Common Stock to be canceled
     pursuant to Section 1.6(b)) will be canceled and extinguished and be
     converted automatically into the right to receive one (1) share of JTS
     Common Stock (the "Exchange Ratio").

          (b) Cancellation of Certain Stock.  At the Effective Time, each share
     of Atari Common Stock owned by JTS or any direct or indirect wholly-owned
     subsidiary of JTS immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be canceled
     and extinguished without any conversion thereof.

          (c) Atari Stock Options.  At the Effective Time, all options to
     purchase Atari Common Stock then outstanding under the Atari Amended 1986
     Stock Option Plan (the "Atari Stock Option Plan") shall be assumed by JTS
     in accordance with Section 5.11.

          (d) Atari Debentures.  At the Effective Time, JTS shall assume all
     obligations of Atari under Atari's 5 1/4% Convertible Subordinated
     Debentures Due 2002 (the "Atari Debentures"), and such debentures shall be
     convertible into shares of JTS Common Stock in accordance with Section
     5.12.

          (e) Federated Debentures.  To the extent required by that certain
     Indenture dated as of April 15, 1985 from the The Federated Group, Inc. to
     Security Pacific National Bank, as trustee, together with the first
     supplemental indenture thereto dated as of September 24, 1987, at the
     Effective Time, JTS shall assume any obligations of Atari under the 7 1/2%
     Convertible Subordinated Debentures due April 15, 2010 of The Federated
     Group, Inc. (the "Federated Debentures").

     (f) Adjustments to Exchange Ratio.  The Exchange Ratio shall be adjusted to
reflect fully the effect of any stock split, reverse split, stock dividend
(including any dividend or distribution of securities convertible into Atari
Common Stock or JTS Common Stock), reorganization, recapitalization or other
like change with

                                        2
<PAGE>   9

respect to Atari Common Stock, JTS Common Stock or JTS Series A Preferred Stock,
$.000001 par value ("JTS Series A Preferred Stock"), occurring after the date
hereof and prior to the Effective Time.

     (g) Fractional Shares.  No fraction of a share of JTS Common Stock will be
issued, but in lieu thereof each holder of shares of Atari Common Stock who
would otherwise be entitled to a fraction of a share of JTS Common Stock (after
aggregating all fractional shares of JTS Common Stock to be received by such
holder) shall receive from JTS an amount of cash (rounded to the nearest whole
cent) equal to the product of (i) such fraction, multiplied by (ii) the closing
price of a share of Atari Common Stock on the trading day immediately prior to
the Effective Time, as reported by the American Stock Exchange.

     1.7 Surrender of Certificates.

     (a) Exchange Agent.  Registrar and Transfer Company, Cranford, NJ, shall
act as exchange agent (the "Exchange Agent") in the Merger.

     (b) JTS to Provide Common Stock and Cash.  Promptly after the Effective
Time, JTS shall make available to the Exchange Agent for exchange in accordance
with this Article I, through such procedures as JTS may reasonably adopt, (i)
the shares of JTS Common Stock issuable pursuant to Section 1.6(a) in exchange
for shares of Atari Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective
Time and (ii) cash in an amount sufficient to permit payment of cash in lieu of
fractional shares pursuant to Section 1.6(g).

     (c) Exchange Procedures.  Promptly after the Effective Time, the Surviving
Corporation shall cause to be mailed to each holder of record of a certificate
or certificates (the "Certificates") which immediately prior to the Effective
Time represented outstanding shares of Atari Common Stock, whose shares were
converted into the right to receive shares of JTS Common Stock (and cash in lieu
of fractional shares) pursuant to Section 1.6, (i) a letter of transmittal
(which shall specify that delivery shall be effected, and risk of loss and title
to the Certificates shall pass, only upon receipt of the Certificates by the
Exchange Agent, and shall be in such form and have such other provisions as JTS
may reasonably specify) and (ii) instructions for use in effecting the surrender
of the Certificates in exchange for certificates representing shares of JTS
Common Stock (and cash in lieu of fractional shares). Upon surrender of a
Certificate for cancellation to the Exchange Agent or to such other agent or
agents as may be appointed by JTS, together with such letter of transmittal,
duly completed and validly executed in accordance with the instructions thereto,
the holder of such Certificate shall be entitled to receive in exchange therefor
a certificate representing the number of whole shares of JTS Common Stock and
payment in lieu of fractional shares which such holder has the right to receive
pursuant to Section 1.6, and the Certificate so surrendered shall forthwith be
canceled. Until so surrendered, each outstanding Certificate that, prior to the
Effective Time, represented shares of Atari Common Stock will be deemed from and
after the Effective Time, for all corporate purposes, other than the payment of
dividends, to evidence the ownership of the number of full shares of JTS Common
Stock into which such shares of Atari Common Stock shall have been so converted
and the right to receive an amount in cash in lieu of the issuance of any
fractional shares in accordance with Section 1.6.

     (d) Distributions With Respect to Unexchanged Shares.  No dividends or
other distributions with respect to JTS Common Stock with a record date after
the Effective Time will be paid to the holder of any unsurrendered Certificate
with respect to the shares of JTS Common Stock represented thereby until the
holder of record of such Certificate shall surrender such Certificate. Subject
to applicable law, following surrender of any such Certificate, there shall be
paid to the record holder of the certificates representing whole shares of JTS
Common Stock issued in exchange therefor, without interest, at the time of such
surrender, the amount of any such dividends or other distributions with a record
date after the Effective Time theretofore payable (but for the provisions of
this Section 1.7(d)) with respect to such shares of JTS Common Stock.

     (e) Transfers of Ownership.  If any certificate for shares of JTS Common
Stock is to be issued in a name other than that in which the Certificate
surrendered in exchange therefor is registered, it will be a condition of the
issuance thereof that the Certificate so surrendered will be properly endorsed
and otherwise in proper form for transfer and that the person requesting such
exchange will have paid to JTS or any agent designated by it any transfer or
other taxes required by reason of the issuance of a certificate for shares of
JTS

                                        3
<PAGE>   10

Common Stock in any name other than that of the registered holder of the
Certificate surrendered, or established to the satisfaction of JTS or any agent
designated by it that such tax has been paid or is not payable.

     (f) No Liability.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section
1.7, none of the Exchange Agent, the Surviving Corporation or any party hereto
shall be liable to any person for any amount properly paid to a public official
pursuant to any applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar law.

     1.8 No Further Ownership Rights in Atari Stock.  All shares of JTS Common
Stock issued upon the surrender for exchange of shares of Atari Common Stock in
accordance with the terms hereof (including any cash paid in lieu of fractional
shares) shall be deemed to have been issued in full satisfaction of all rights
pertaining to such shares of Atari Common Stock, and there shall be no further
registration of transfers on the records of the Surviving Corporation of shares
of Atari Common Stock which were outstanding immediately prior to the Effective
Time. If, after the Effective Time, Certificates are presented to the Surviving
Corporation for any reason, they shall be canceled and exchanged as provided in
this Article I.

     1.9 Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Certificates.  In the event any Certificates
shall have been lost, stolen or destroyed, the Exchange Agent shall issue in
exchange for such lost, stolen or destroyed Certificates, upon the making of an
affidavit of that fact by the holder thereof, such shares of JTS Common Stock
(and cash in lieu of fractional shares) as may be required pursuant to Section
1.6; provided, however, that JTS may, in its discretion and as a condition
precedent to the issuance thereof, require the owner of such lost, stolen or
destroyed Certificates to deliver a bond in such sum as it may reasonably direct
as indemnity against any claim that may be made against JTS, the Surviving
Corporation or the Exchange Agent with respect to the Certificates alleged to
have been lost, stolen or destroyed.

     1.10 Tax Consequences.  It is intended by the parties hereto that the
Merger shall constitute a reorganization within the meaning of Section 368 of
the Code.

     1.11 Taking of Necessary Action; Further Action.  If, at any time after the
Effective Time, any further action is necessary or desirable to carry out the
purposes of this Agreement and to vest the Surviving Corporation with full
right, title and possession to all assets, property, rights, privileges, powers
and franchises of Atari, the officers and directors of Atari are fully
authorized in the name of the corporation or otherwise to take, and will take,
all such lawful and necessary action, so long as such action is not inconsistent
with this Agreement.

     1.12 Dissenting JTS Shares.

     (a) Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, any

     In this Agreement, any reference to a party's "knowledge" means such
party's actual knowledge after due and diligent inquiry.

     Except as disclosed in a document of even date herewith and delivered by
JTS to Atari prior to the execution and delivery of this Agreement and referring
to the representations and warranties in this Agreement (the "JTS Disclosure
Schedule"), JTS represents and warrants to Atari as follows:

     2.1 Organization, Standing and Power.  Each of JTS and its subsidiaries is
a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the
laws of its jurisdiction of organization. Each of JTS and its subsidiaries has
the corporate power to own its properties and to carry on its business as now
being conducted and as proposed to be conducted and is duly qualified to do
business and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the failure to be
so qualified and in good standing would have a Material Adverse Effect on JTS
and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole. JTS has delivered a true and correct
copy of the Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws or other charter documents,
as applicable, of JTS and each of its subsidiaries, each as amended to date, to
Atari. Neither JTS nor any of its subsidiaries is in violation of any of the
provisions of its Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws or equivalent
organizational documents. JTS is the owner of all outstanding shares of capital
stock of each of its subsidiaries and all such shares are duly authorized,
validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable. All of the outstanding shares of
capital stock of each such subsidiary are owned by JTS free and clear of all
liens, charges, claims or encumbrances or rights of others. There are no
outstanding subscriptions, options, warrants, puts, calls, rights, exchangeable
or convertible securities or other commitments or agreements of any character
relating to the issued or unissued capital stock or other securities of any such
subsidiary, or otherwise obligating JTS or any such subsidiary to issue,
transfer, sell, purchase, redeem or otherwise acquire any such securities.
Except as disclosed in the JTS Disclosure Schedule, JTS does not directly or
indirectly own any equity or similar interest in, or any interest convertible or
exchangeable or exercisable for, any equity or similar interest in, any
corporation, partnership, joint venture or other business association or entity.

     2.2 Capital Structure.  The authorized capital stock of JTS consists of
90,000,000 shares of Common Stock, $.000001 par value, and 70,000,000 shares of
Preferred Stock, $.000001 par value, all of which is designated Series A
Preferred Stock, of which there were issued and outstanding as of the close of
business on April 5, 1996, 9,204,741 shares of Common Stock and 29,696,370
shares of Series A Preferred. The JTS Disclosure Schedule contains a true and
complete list of the holders of JTS Common Stock and JTS Series A Preferred
Stock and the number of shares held by each such holder on April 5, 1996. There
are no other outstanding shares of capital stock or voting securities. Each
outstanding share of JTS Series A Preferred Stock is convertible into one (1)
share of JTS Common Stock. All outstanding shares of JTS Common Stock and JTS
Series A Preferred Stock are duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and
non-assessable and are free of any liens or encumbrances other than any liens or
encumbrances created by or imposed upon the holders thereof, and are not subject
to preemptive rights or rights of first refusal created by statute, the
Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws of JTS or any agreement to which JTS is a
party or by which it is bound. As of the close of business on April 5, 1996, JTS

issued to Atari on February 13, 1996 and upon exercise of the warrants issuable
to Atari pursuant to such note. Since April 5, 1996, JTS has not issued or
granted additional options under the JTS Stock Option Plan. Other than pursuant
to this Agreement, there are no other options, warrants, calls, rights,
commitments or agreements of any character to which JTS is a party or by which
it is bound obligating JTS to issue, deliver, sell, repurchase or redeem, or
cause to be

JTS or obligating JTS to grant, extend, accelerate the vesting of, change the
price of, or otherwise amend or enter into any such option, warrant, call,
right, commitment or agreement. The terms of the JTS Stock Option Plan and the
JTS Warrants permit the assumption or substitution of options or warrants, as
applicable, to purchase Atari Common Stock as provided in this Agreement,
without the consent or approval of the holders of such securities, the JTS
stockholders, or otherwise. True and complete copies of all agreements and
instruments relating to or issued under the JTS Stock Option Plan or JTS
Warrants have been made available to Atari and such agreements and instruments
have not been amended, modified or supplemented, and there are no agreements to
amend, modify or supplement such agreements or instruments in any case from the

pursuant to the Merger will be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid, and
non-assessable.

     2.3 Authority.  JTS has all requisite corporate power and authority to
enter into this Agreement and to consummate the transactions contemplated
hereby. The execution and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation of the
transactions contemplated hereby have been duly authorized by all necessary

duly executed and delivered by JTS and constitutes the valid and binding
obligation of JTS. The execution and delivery of this Agreement by JTS does not,

acceleration of any obligation or loss of any benefit under (i) any provision of
the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws of JTS or any of its subsidiaries, as
amended, or (ii) any material mortgage, indenture, lease, contract or other
agreement or instrument, permit, concession, franchise, license, judgment,

and complete list of all necessary consents, waivers and approvals of third
parties applicable to the operations of JTS that are required to be obtained by
JTS in connection with the execution and delivery of this Agreement or the
Merger Agreement by JTS or the consummation by JTS of the transactions
contemplated hereby or thereby, except any such consents, waivers and approvals,
which, if not obtained, would not have a Material Adverse Effect on JTS and its
subsidiaries, taken as a whole. Prior to the Closing Date, JTS will obtain all
such consents.

Lunenburg, S.A., a Panama corporation, together with all documents executed in
connection therewith (the "Moduler Agreement"), has been duly executed and
delivered by JTS, the transactions contemplated thereby have been consummated,
and the Moduler Agreement constitutes a valid and binding obligation of JTS. JTS
has provided to Atari a true, correct and complete copy of the Moduler
Agreement, and has performed all obligations required to be performed by it to
date under the Moduler Agreement. To JTS' best knowledge, (a) the other parties
to the Moduler Agreement have performed all obligations required to be performed
by them to date under such agreement, (b) as to such other parties, the Moduler
Agreement is valid, binding and enforceable in accordance with its terms and (c)

                                  ARTICLE III

                    REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF ATARI

     Except as disclosed in the Atari SEC Documents (as defined in Section 3.4)
or in a document of even date herewith and delivered by Atari to JTS prior to
the execution and delivery of this Agreement and referring to the
representations and warranties in this Agreement (the "Atari Disclosure
Schedule"), Atari represents and warrants to JTS as follows:

     3.1 Organization, Standing and Power.  The Atari Disclosure Schedule
identifies each subsidiary of Atari that is a "significant subsidiary" of Atari
as defined by Rule 1-02(v) of Regulation S-X (the "Significant Subsidiaries").
Atari and each of its Significant Subsidiaries is a corporation duly organized,
validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of
organization. Each of Atari and its Significant Subsidiaries has the corporate
power to own its properties and to carry on its business as now being conducted
and as proposed to be conducted and is duly qualified to do business and is in
good standing in each jurisdiction in which the failure to be so qualified and
in good standing would have a Material Adverse Effect on Atari and its
subsidiaries, taken as a whole. Atari has delivered a true and correct copy of
the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws or other charter documents, as
applicable, of Atari and each of its Significant Subsidiaries, each as amended
to date, to JTS. Neither Atari nor any of its Significant Subsidiaries is in
violation of any of the provisions of its Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws or
equivalent organizational documents. Atari is the owner of all outstanding
shares of capital stock of each of its subsidiaries and all such shares are duly
authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable. All of the outstanding
shares of capital stock of each such subsidiary are owned by Atari free and
clear of all liens, charges, claims or encumbrances or rights of others. There
are no outstanding subscriptions, options, warrants, puts, calls, rights,
exchangeable or convertible securities or other commitments or agreements of any
character relating to the issued or unissued capital stock or other securities
of any such subsidiary, or otherwise obligating Atari or any such subsidiary to
issue, transfer, sell, purchase, redeem or otherwise acquire any such
securities. Except as disclosed in the Atari SEC Documents (as defined in
Section 3.4), Atari does not directly or indirectly own any equity or similar
interest in, or any interest convertible or exchangeable or exercisable for, any
equity or similar interest in, any corporation, partnership, joint venture or
other business association or entity.

     3.2 Capital Structure.  The authorized capital stock of Atari consists of
100,000,000 shares of Common Stock, $.01 par value, and 10,000,000 shares of
Preferred Stock, $.01 par value, of which there were issued and outstanding as
of the close of business on March 29, 1996, 63,727,318 shares of Common Stock
and no shares of Preferred Stock. There are no other outstanding shares of
capital stock or voting securities of Atari, other than shares of Atari Common
Stock issued after March 29, 1996 upon the exercise of options issued under the
Atari 1986 Stock Option Plan (the "Atari Stock Option Plan"). All outstanding
shares of Atari have been duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and are
nonassessable and free of any liens or encumbrances other than any liens or
encumbrances created by or imposed upon the holders thereof, and are not subject
to

                                       12
<PAGE>   19

preemptive rights or rights of first refusal created by statute, the Articles of
Incorporation or Bylaws of Atari or any agreement to which Atari is a party or
by which it is bound. As of the close of business on March 29, 1996, Atari has
reserved 3,000,000 shares of Common Stock for issuance to employees, directors
and consultants pursuant to the Atari Stock Option Plan, of which 599,674 shares
have been issued pursuant to option exercises, and 899,125 shares are subject to
outstanding, unexercised options. Since March 29, 1996, Atari has not issued or
granted additional options under the Atari Stock Option Plan. There are no other
options, warrants, calls, rights, commitments or agreements of any character to
which Atari is a party or by which it is bound obligating Atari to issue,
deliver, sell, repurchase or redeem, or cause to be issued, delivered, sold,
repurchased or redeemed, any shares of the capital stock of Atari or obligating
Atari to grant, extend or enter into any such option, warrant, call, right,
commitment or agreement.

     3.3 Authority.  Atari has all requisite corporate power and authority to
enter into this Agreement and to consummate the transactions contemplated
hereby. The execution and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation of the
transactions contemplated hereby have been duly authorized by all necessary
corporate action on the part of Atari, subject only to the approval of the
Merger by the Atari stockholders as contemplated by Section 6.1(a). This
Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by Atari and constitutes the
valid and binding obligations of Atari. The execution and delivery of this
Agreement do not, and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby
will not, conflict with, or result in any violation of, or default under (with
or without notice or lapse of time, or both), or give rise to a right of
termination, cancellation or acceleration of any obligation or loss of any
benefit under (i) any provision of the Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws of
Atari or any of its Significant Subsidiaries, as amended, or (ii) any material
mortgage, indenture, lease, contract or other agreement or instrument, permit,
concession, franchise, license, judgment, order, decree, statute, law,
ordinance, rule or regulation applicable to Atari or any of its Significant
Subsidiaries or any of their properties or assets. No consent, approval, order
or authorization of, or registration, declaration or filing with, any
Governmental Entity, is required by or with respect to Atari or any of its
Significant Subsidiaries in connection with the execution and delivery of this
Agreement by Atari or the consummation by Atari of the transactions contemplated
hereby, except for (i) the filing of the Certificate of Merger as provided in
Section 1.2, (ii) the filing with the SEC and the American Stock Exchange of the
Proxy Statement relating to the Atari Stockholders Meeting, (iii) the filing of

be required under applicable state securities laws and the securities laws of
any foreign country, (v) such filings as may be required under HSR, (vi) such
filings as may be required under the rules and regulations of the American Stock
Exchange, and (vii) such other consents, authorizations, filings, approvals and
registrations which, if not obtained or made, would not have a Material Adverse
Effect on Atari and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole, and would not prevent,
alter or materially delay any of the transactions contemplated by this
Agreement. The Atari Disclosure Schedule sets forth a full and complete list of
all necessary consents, waivers and approvals of third parties applicable to the
operations of Atari that are required to be obtained by Atari in connection with
the execution and delivery of this Agreement or the Merger Agreement by Atari or
the consummation by Atari of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby,
except any such consents, waivers and approvals, which, if not obtained, would
not have a Material Adverse Effect on Atari and its subsidiaries, taken as a
whole. Prior to the Closing Date, Atari will obtain all such consents.

     3.4 SEC Documents; Financial Statements.  Atari has furnished to JTS a true
and complete copy of each report, registration statement, definitive proxy
statement, and other filings filed with the SEC by Atari since January 1, 1993
(other than filings pursuant to Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), and any registration statement on Form
S-8), and prior to the Effective Time, Atari will have furnished JTS with true
and complete copies of any additional documents (other than filings pursuant to
Section 16 of the Exchange Act, and any registration statement on Form S-8)
filed with the SEC by Atari prior to the Effective Time (collectively, the
"Atari SEC Documents"). As of their respective filing dates, the Atari SEC
Documents complied in all material respects with the requirements of the
Exchange Act and the Securities Act, and none of the Atari SEC Documents
contained any untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material
fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements made
therein, in light of the circumstances in which they were made, not misleading,
except to the

                                       13
<PAGE>   20

extent corrected by a subsequently filed Atari SEC Document. The financial
statements of Atari, including the notes thereto, included in the Atari SEC
Documents (the "Atari Financial Statements") were complete and correct in all
material respects as of their respective dates, complied as to form in all
material respects with applicable accounting requirements and with the published
rules and regulations of the SEC with respect thereto as of their respective
dates, and have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles applied on a basis consistent throughout the periods indicated and
consistent with each other (except as may be indicated in the notes thereto or,
in the case of unaudited statements included in Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Qs,
as permitted by Form 10-Q of the SEC). The Atari Financial Statements are in
accordance with the books and records of Atari and fairly present the
consolidated financial condition and operating results of Atari and its
subsidiaries at the dates and during the periods indicated therein (subject, in
the case of unaudited statements, to normal, recurring year-end adjustments).
There has been no change in Atari accounting policies except as described in the
notes to the Atari Financial Statements.

     3.5 Absence of Certain Changes.  Since December 31, 1995 (the "Atari
Balance Sheet Date"), Atari has conducted its business in the ordinary course
consistent with past practice and there has not occurred: (i) any change, event
or condition (whether or not covered by insurance) that has resulted in, or
might reasonably be expected to result in, a Material Adverse Effect to Atari
and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole; (ii) any acquisition, sale or transfer
of any material asset of Atari or any of its subsidiaries other than in the
ordinary course of business and consistent with past practice; (iii) any change
in accounting methods or practices (including any change in depreciation or
amortization policies or rates) by Atari or any revaluation by Atari of any of
its assets; (iv) any issuance or agreement to issue or any commitment to issue
any equity security, bond, note or other security of Atari or any of its
subsidiaries; (v) any declaration, setting aside, or payment of a dividend or
other distribution with respect to the shares of Atari, or any direct or
indirect redemption, purchase or other acquisition by Atari of any of its shares
of capital stock; (vi) any material contract entered into by Atari, other than
in the ordinary course of business and as provided to JTS, or any amendment or
termination of, or default under, any material contract to which Atari is a
party or by which it is bound; or (vii) any negotiation or agreement by Atari or
any of its subsidiaries to do any of the things described in the preceding
clauses (i) through (vii) (other than negotiations with JTS regarding the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement).

     3.6 Absence of Undisclosed Liabilities.  Atari has no material obligations
or liabilities of any nature (matured or unmatured, fixed or contingent) other
than (i) those set forth or adequately provided for in the Balance Sheet
included in Atari's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31,
1995 (the "Atari Balance Sheet"), (ii) those incurred in the ordinary course of
business and not required to be set forth in the Atari Balance Sheet under
generally accepted accounting principles, and (iii) those incurred in the
ordinary course of business since the Atari Balance Sheet Date and consistent
with past practice.

     3.7 Litigation.  There is no private or governmental action, suit,
proceeding, claim, arbitration or investigation pending before any agency, court
or tribunal, foreign or domestic, or, to the knowledge of Atari or any of its
subsidiaries, threatened against Atari or any of its subsidiaries or any of
their respective properties or any of their respective officers or directors (in
their capacities as such) that, individually or in the aggregate, could have a
Material Adverse Effect on Atari and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole. There
is no judgment, decree or order against Atari or any of its subsidiaries or, to
the knowledge of Atari or any of its subsidiaries, any of their respective
directors or officers (in their capacities as such) that could prevent, enjoin,
alter or delay any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, or that
could have a Material Adverse Effect on Atari and its subsidiaries, taken as a
whole. The outcome of the matter In re The Federated Group, Inc. Alleged Debtor
U.S.B.C. (N.D.Cal. Div. 5) No. 92-50412-JRG Chapter 7, is not reasonably likely
to have a Material Adverse Effect on Atari and its subsidiaries, taken as a
whole.

     3.8 Restrictions on Business Activities.  There is no agreement, judgment,
injunction, order or decree binding upon Atari or any of its subsidiaries which
has or could have the effect of prohibiting or materially impairing any current
or future business practice of Atari or any of its subsidiaries, any acquisition
of property by Atari or any of its subsidiaries or the conduct of business by
Atari or any of its subsidiaries as currently conducted or as proposed to be
conducted by Atari or any of its subsidiaries.

                                       14
<PAGE>   21

     3.9 Governmental Authorization.  Atari and each of its subsidiaries have
obtained each federal, state, county, local or foreign governmental consent,
license, permit, grant, or other authorization of a Governmental Entity (i)
pursuant to which Atari or any of its subsidiaries currently operates or holds
any interest in any of its properties or (ii) which is required for the
operation of Atari's or any of its subsidiaries' business or the holding of any
such interest (herein collectively called "Atari Authorizations"), and all of
such Atari Authorizations are in full force and effect, except where the failure
to obtain or have any of such Atari Authorizations could not reasonably be
expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on Atari and its subsidiaries, taken
as a whole.

     3.10 Title to Property.  Atari and its Significant Subsidiaries have good
and marketable title to all of their respective properties, interests in
properties and assets, real and personal, reflected in the Atari Balance Sheet
or acquired after the Atari Balance Sheet Date (except properties, interests in
properties and assets sold or otherwise disposed of since the Atari Balance
Sheet Date thereof in the ordinary course of business), free and clear of all
mortgages, liens, pledges, charges or encumbrances of any kind or character,
except (i) the lien of current taxes not yet due and payable, (ii) such
imperfections of title, liens and easements as do not and will not materially
detract from or interfere with the use of the properties subject thereto or
affected thereby, or otherwise materially impair business operations involving
such properties and (iii) liens securing debt which is reflected on the Atari
Balance Sheet. The plants, property and equipment of Atari and its Significant
Subsidiaries that are used in the operations of their businesses are in good
operating condition and repair. All properties used in the operations of Atari
and its Significant Subsidiaries are reflected in the Atari Balance Sheet to the
extent generally accepted accounting principles require the same to be
reflected. The Atari Disclosure Schedule identifies each parcel of real property
owned or leased by Atari or any of its Significant Subsidiaries

     3.11 Intellectual Property.  Atari and its Significant Subsidiaries own, or
are licensed or otherwise possess legally enforceable rights to use all
Intellectual Property that are used or proposed to be used in the business of
Atari and its Significant Subsidiaries as currently conducted or as proposed to
be conducted by Atari and its subsidiaries, except to the extent that the
failure to have such rights have not had and could not reasonably be expected to
have a Material Adverse Effect on Atari and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole.
To the knowledge of Atari and its Significant Subsidiaries, there is no material
unauthorized use, disclosure, infringement or misappropriation of any
Intellectual Property rights of Atari or any of its subsidiaries, any trade
secret material to Atari or any of its subsidiaries, or any Intellectual
Property right of any third party to the extent licensed by or through Atari or
any of its subsidiaries, by any third party, including any employee or former
employee of Atari or any of its subsidiaries. Neither Atari nor any of its
subsidiaries has entered into any agreement to indemnify any other person
against any charge of infringement of any Intellectual Property, other than
indemnification provisions (i) listed on the Atari Disclosure Schedule or (ii)
contained in purchase orders arising in the ordinary course of business.

     3.12 Environmental Matters.

     (a) To the knowledge of Atari and its Significant Subsidiaries, no
Hazardous Material is present in, on or under any property that Atari or any of
its subsidiaries has at any time owned, operated, occupied or leased (herein an

not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on Atari and its
subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

     (b) To the knowledge of Atari and its Significant Subsidiaries, neither
Atari nor any of its subsidiaries has engaged in a Hazardous Materials Activity
in material violation of any applicable foreign, federal, state or local

Atari and its subsidiaries is and at all times has been in compliance with all

have a Material Adverse Effect on Atari and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

     (d) No action, proceeding, permit revocation, writ, injunction or claim is
pending, or to the knowledge of Atari and its subsidiaries threatened,
concerning the Hazardous Materials Activities of Atari or any of its

                                       15
<PAGE>   22

subsidiaries and/or any Atari Facilities. Neither Atari nor any of its
Significant Subsidiaries is aware of any fact or circumstance which could impose
any material environmental liability upon Atari or any of its subsidiaries.

     3.13 Taxes.  Atari and each of its subsidiaries, and any consolidated,
combined, unitary or aggregate group for Tax purposes of which Atari or any of
its subsidiaries is or has been a member have timely filed all Tax Returns
required to be filed by it, have paid all Taxes shown thereon to be due and has
provided adequate accruals in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles in its financial statements for any Taxes that have not been paid,
whether or not shown as being due on any Tax Returns. Except as disclosed in the

subsidiaries is a party to any tax sharing or tax allocation agreement nor does

any adverse effect on the continued validity and effectiveness of any such Tax
exemption or other Tax-sharing agreement or order.

knowledge of any threatened termination of, or premium increase with respect to,
any of such policies.

its subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

that a breach of this Section 4.4 may cause irreparable and material loss and

other equitable remedy is the appropriate remedy for any such breach.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing contained in this Agreement (i) shall
prevent the Board of Directors of Atari from referring any third party to this
Section 4.5 or providing a copy of this Agreement (other than the JTS Disclosure
Schedule) to any third party, (ii) shall prevent the Board of Directors of Atari
from considering, negotiating, approving and recommending to the shareholders of
Atari an unsolicited bona fide written Atari Acquisition Proposal which the
Board of Directors of Atari determines in good faith (after consultation with
its financial advisors and after consultation with outside counsel as to whether
the Board of Directors is required to do so in order to discharge properly its
fiduciary duties to shareholders under applicable law) would result in a
transaction more favorable to the Company's shareholders from a financial point
of view than the transaction contemplated by this Agreement (any such Atari
Acquisition Proposal being referred to herein as a "Superior Atari Proposal").

     8.4 Interpretation.  When a reference is made in this Agreement to
Exhibits, such reference shall be to an Exhibit to this Agreement unless
otherwise indicated. The words "include," "includes" and "including" when used
herein shall be deemed in each case to be followed by the words "without
limitation." The table of contents and headings contained in this Agreement are
for reference purposes only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or
interpretation of this Agreement.

     8.5 Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, both of
which shall be considered one and the same agreement and shall become effective
when one or more counterparts have been signed by each of the parties and
delivered to the other parties, it being understood that all parties need not
sign the same counterpart.

     8.6 Entire Agreement; Nonassignability; Parties in Interest.  This
Agreement and the documents and instruments and other agreements specifically
referred to herein or delivered pursuant hereto, including the Exhibits, the
Schedules, including the JTS Disclosure Schedule and the Atari Disclosure
Schedule (a) constitute the entire agreement among the parties with respect to
the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements and understandings,
both written and oral, among the parties with respect to the subject matter
hereof; (b) are not intended to confer upon any other person any rights or
remedies hereunder; and (c) shall not be assigned by operation of law or
otherwise.

     8.7 Severability.  In the event that any provision of this Agreement, or
the application thereof, becomes or is declared by a court of competent
jurisdiction to be illegal, void or unenforceable, the remainder of this
Agreement will continue in full force and effect and the application of such
provision to other persons or circumstances will be interpreted so as reasonably
to effect the intent of the parties hereto. The parties further agree to replace
such void or unenforceable provision of this Agreement with a valid and
enforceable provision that will achieve, to the extent possible, the economic,
business and other purposes of such void or unenforceable provision.

     8.8 Remedies Cumulative.  Except as otherwise provided herein, any and all
remedies herein expressly conferred upon a party will be deemed cumulative with
and not exclusive of any other remedy conferred hereby, or by law or equity upon
such party, and the exercise by a party of any one remedy will not preclude the
exercise of any other remedy.

     8.9 Governing Law.  This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in

the parties hereto irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of any
court located in the County of Santa Clara, California, in connection with any
matter based upon or arising out of this Agreement or the matters contemplated
herein, agrees that process may be served upon them in any manner authorized by
the laws of the State of California for such persons and waives and covenants
not to assert or plead any objection which they might otherwise have to such
jurisdiction and such process.

     8.10 Rules of Construction.  The parties hereto agree that they have been
represented by counsel during the negotiation, preparation and execution of this
Agreement and, therefore, waive the application of any law, regulation, holding

document will be construed against the party drafting such agreement or
document.
