CARL THOMPSON ASSOCIATES WINS THREE IABC GOLD QUILL AWARDS

 BOULDER, Colo., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Carl Thompson Associates, Inc. has won three Gold Quill awards from the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC).
 There are several milestones that make this international competition among hundreds of business communicators even more noteworthy:
 -- This marks the first time a husband and wife team have both won separate Gold Quill awards.
 -- This is the first time an independent public relations agency based in Colorado has won three Gold Quill awards the same year.
 -- This marks the fifth Gold Quill award Carl Thompson Associates has won during the agency's eight years in business.
 -- This is the fourth Gold Quill the agency has won for the best investor relations program category.
 -- The Boulder-based agency also was just awarded the prestigious Silver Anvil award from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) for investor relations for companies with sales of more than $500 million. This was for the firm's work on the Coors' spin-off of ACX Technologies last year.
 -- This is the first time a public relations agency has won both the IABC Gold Quill and PRSA's Silver Anvil for producing the best investor relations in the world in the same year.
 Shirley Thompson, president and co-founder of the firm, received the Gold Quill for Excellence for her work in producing the 1992 Investor Relations Program for Dallas-based Pancho's Mexican Buffet Restaurants.
 Carl Thompson, chief executive officer of the firm, also received the Gold Quill for Excellence for his work on the Adolph Coors spin-off of ACX Technologies last year.
 Shirley Thompson also received the Gold Quill for producing Pancho's 1992 Annual Report.
