Stamford, Conn. - Harman International plans to offer
scholarships in memory of founder Sidney Harman and a series of limited-edition
products to commemorate his legacy, said Dinesh Paliwal, Harman's chairman,
president and CEO.

The company didn't disclose details
of the planned products.

Dr. Sidney Harman died
April 12 at age 92.

In 1953, he teamed
up with Bernard Kardon to form Harman/Kardon, whose first products were
a mono FM tuner and mono amplifiers for the nascent high-fidelity market. The
company eventually grew into Harman International, from which he retired in 2008.
