THREE NEW DIRECTORS FOR NORTHROP

 THREE NEW DIRECTORS FOR NORTHROP
 LOS ANGELES, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Oliver C. Boileau,


Northrop corporate vice president, and president and general manager of its B-2 Division, today was elected to the Northrop Corporation (NYSE: NOC) Board of Directors. Aulana L. Peters, a partner in the Los Angeles law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, and Wallace C. Solberg, Northrop corporate vice president and general manager of its Aircraft Division, were nominated to stand for election to the Board at Northrop's annual meeting of shareholders in May.
 Mr. Boileau fills the vacancy on the board created by the retirement from the company and the board of F.J. Manzella, Northrop executive vice president-operations, which was announced previously. Under Northrop's procedures, approximately one-third of the 14-member Board is elected each year, and Mrs. Peters and Mr. Solberg were nominated to fill forthcoming Category I board vacancies, which are to be filled by election this year. Mr. Boileau fills a Category II vacancy and will stand for election in 1993.
 Mrs. Peters and Mr. Solberg were nominated to fill vacancies that will occur with the retirement of William F. Ballhaus, 73, and Thomas V. Jones, 71, who have reached the mandatory Board retirement age. Northrop retirement policy prohibits the nomination of directors over 70 years of age.
 Mr. Boileau, 64, joined Northrop in 1989 to manage the B-2 Division and the development and production of the B-2 Stealth bomber, the company's largest single program. His experience in aerospace spans 35 years, during which time he served as president of Boeing Aerospace Co. and president and vice chairman of the General Dynamics Corporation.
 Mrs. Peters, 50, joined Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in 1973 and became a partner in 1980. She is also a member of the board of directors of 3M, the New York Stock Exchange and IDS Mutual Funds. From 1984 to 1988 she served as a commissioner of the Securities and Exchange Commission, before returning to her law practice.
 Mr. Solberg, 60, served as vice president and general manager of Northrop's then-Defense Systems Division in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, before becoming vice president and general manager of the company's consolidated Electronic Systems Division. He was named last year to lead the company's Aircraft Division.
 Upon her election, Mrs. Peters will be the eighth new outside director to join the Northrop board since Kent Kresa was elected chief executive officer of the company in 1990. With Mr. Boileau and Mr. Solberg, the Northrop board would comprise 11 independent outside directors and three management directors.
