DONNELLY CORPORATION CONFIRMS TRIAL DATE

 DONNELLY CORPORATION CONFIRMS TRIAL DATE
 HOLLAND, Mich., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released


by Donnelly Corporation:
 Donnelly Corporation (AMEX: DON) wishes to confirm that the trial in the longstanding patent litigation between Donnelly and Gentex Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: GNTX) is scheduled to begin in less than eight weeks, on Sept. 8, 1992. Donnelly has been actively seeking a resolution of the dispute with Gentex since the litigation began more than two years ago.
 Donnelly is highly confident of its position in the litigation, and strongly believes that the Gentex patents in the lawsuit are not infringed, invalid, and were procured by Gentex's inequitable conduct in the United States Patent and Trade Mark Office. Donnelly is looking forward to the trial, fully expecting that the court's decision will vindicate Donnelly's position and establish that Donnelly's products do not violate the Gentex patents.
 Gentex has recently announced the issuance of another patent, U.S. Patent No. 5,128,799. This patent is simply an offshoot of one of the three Gentex patents involved in the litigation. Donnelly is confident that Gentex's recent patent will have no effect on resolution of the current litigation.
 Donnelly has been concerned since the filing of the lawsuit in May 1990 that Gentex was trying to prolong the litigation to obtain benefit in the marketplace. Donnelly will strenuously resist any such effort by Gentex to further delay the trial of this lawsuit.
