HARLAND FORMS STRATEGIC ALLIANCES WITH TELECHECK, CARDPRO

 ATLANTA, May 10 /PRNewswure/ -- Atlanta-based John H. Harland Company (NYSE: JH) today announced it has formed strategic alliances with TeleCheck Services, Inc., the world's leading check acceptance company, and Cardpro Services, Inc., a leading provider of magnetic stripe cards.
 The companies will expand Harland's line of products and services available to financial institutions throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.
 Houston-based TeleCheck Services, Inc. is a subsidiary of Atlanta- based First Financial Management Corporation (NYSE: FFM), one of the nation's leading information processors. TeleCheck, recognized nationwide for guaranteeing checks in the retail sector, will provide new account screening to financial institutions through Harland's sales force. "Check and new account fraud cost financial institutions $4.5 billion in 1990," says John D. Chaney, TeleCheck's president and CEO. "Our program can help financial institutions prevent potential losses and abuses before they happen."
 Cardpro Services, Inc., based in Westmont, Ill., has been a leading provider of magnetic stripe cards since its inception in 1979. The company will now market ATM card programs through Harland Card Services. "Through our partnership we have the opportunity to provide the depth and convenience of a one-stop product mix," says Bastian Knoppers, Cardpro's founder and president. "This combination is unmatched by any of our competitors."
 "These alliances demonstrate Harland's commitment to providing complete solutions for members of the financial community," says Robert R. Woodson, Harland's chairman, president and CEO. "Our customers will benefit from added convenience and competitive pricing. They will no longer have to find three companies to provide checks, ATM cards and new account screening -- they can get everything they need through Harland."
 Harland is one of the nation's largest check printers and serves the financial community with a variety of related products and services. In additon, Harland is a major national participant in the data service industry, serving educational and commercial markets. The company has production facilities for its business units across the United States and in Puerto Rico.
