IR-Heads Rejoice…

There's been a lot of percolations in PR lately about the growing nexus between public relations and investor relations and whether ever the twain shall meet. Now, PR Newswire
is playing its part, launching a new service called Investor Access Reporting. The Web link from regular PR Newswire, http://www.newscom/cgi-bin/prnh/200000306/PRNLOGO, will provide information on the total number of accesses to a
news release by institutional investors viewing the release on Thomson Financial's First Call r Network. Since 2002, PR Newswire and Thomson Financial have created a suite of
comprehensive IR services. Contact: Rachel Asche,
