AMERICAN BUSINESS INFORMATION, INC. ANNOUNCES 1993 ILLINOIS BUSINESS DIRECTORY -- INCLUDING CREDIT RATING CODES

 OMAHA, Neb., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- American Business Information, Inc. (NASDAQ: ABII) today announced that its directory publishing division, American Business Directories, is introducing its new 1993 Illinois Business Directory. The two-volume directory lists over 390,000 businesses -- virtually every business in the state, from the smallest "mom & pop" grocery stores to the largest corporations. The directory is compiled from Yellow Pages, Business White Pages, annual reports, government sources, SEC filings, and much more. Then, over 400,000 phone calls are made to verify the listings and collect additional information. The Illinois Business Directory contains in- depth information on Illinois businesses: name of the owner or manager, number of employees, sales volume and now credit rating codes.
 The Illinois Business Directory has been extremely popular since its introduction in 1985. Customers use it for sales prospecting, to acquire new customers through direct mail or telemarketing, to locate suppliers, and as a general business reference. And, with the addition of credit information, the Illinois Business Directory becomes a powerful tool to help make credit decisions.
 There are over 40,000 companies in Illinois who market to other businesses, and many are small companies who do not have the budgets or resources to get this information on their own. Now these business-to- business marketers can have a tool to help them with sales, marketing, and credit applications, at a price they can afford.
 In addition, Illinois Business Directory customers receive a complimentary subscription to the ABI Network. This revolutionary service lets them call 800-808-INFO and get a variety of business information, over the phone or faxed to their office. Business credit reports, company profiles, business "Directory Assistance" look-ups, news articles, legal filings and more are available on the ABI Network. Customers with PCs and modems can access the same information online with the "Business Information -- ONLINE" service by calling 402-592-5295.
 American Business Information, Inc. was recently named one of the "50 Best Small Growth Companies" by Business Week magazine. The company is a leading compiler and distributor of business information to nearly 300,000 customers. Founded in 1972, ABI is a publicly held company traded on the NASDAQ stock exchange under the symbol "ABII."
