ARTHUR D. LITTLE AND OPINION RESEARCH CORPORATION COMPLETE MANAGEMENT BUYOUT

 ARTHUR D. LITTLE AND OPINION RESEARCH CORPORATION
 COMPLETE MANAGEMENT BUYOUT
 CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Arthur D. Little, Inc. the international management and technology consulting firm, today announced the sale of its survey research arm, Opinion Research Corporation (ORC), to a group comprising ORC's senior management headed by its President, Dr. Michael R. Cooper. Terms of the sale were not disclosed.
 Arthur D. Little acquired the Princeton-based research organization in 1975 to complement its core consulting business. "Since the acquisition, we've received excellent professional support, as well as substantial financial dividends, from ORC," said Dr. Charles R. LaMantia, the consulting firm's president and chief executive officer.
 Dr. LaMantia pointed out that as Arthur D. Little has changed its strategic focus during the past few years in order to meet client needs, requirements for extensive field data collection and other specialized services have decreased. In that time, the company has either sold or shut down: Pilgrim Health, a health insurance claims processing subsidiary; CF Systems, a group involved in chemical separations technology; Arthur D. Little Valuation, providers of financial evaluations of corporate assets for tax and other purposes; and Decision Resources, a publisher of management reports. According to Dr. LaMantia, concentrating on its core business -- i.e., management consulting, technology and product development, and environmental, health and safety consulting -- has enabled Arthur D. Little to prosper in these difficult times.
 Dr. LaMantia stated that the consulting firm would continue to use the services of ORC as needed and that Dr. Ashok S. Kalelkar, a senior vice president of Arthur D. Little, Inc., and former ORC chairman, will remain a member of the survey research group's board of directors.
