JOHNNIE D. JOHNSON & CO. ANNOUNCES EUROPEAN EXPANSION

       JOHNNIE D. JOHNSON & CO. ANNOUNCES EUROPEAN EXPANSION
    LONDON, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ --  Gary J. Wilson has joined Johnnie D. Johnson & Co., Inc. to advise clients with European investor relations programs.  This appointment signals the company's expansion into Europe and the opening of a London office.
    "Our clients want quality services designed to meet their objectives in Europe.  They want strategic thought, flexible programs and realistic pricing.  That's why we've added a professional with extensive experience of handling the European programs of U.S. companies to our investor relations arsenal," said Johnnie Johnson, chairman and chief executive officer.  "We are fortunate to have a person with both fund management and investor relations experience."
    Prior to entering investor relations with Georgeson International, Garry Wilson was an investment manager specializing in U.S. equities for institutional investors based in Edinburgh in London.  Having experienced investor relations from both sides he is well equipped to advise clients on the content of their European activities.
    "The opening of our London office positions us to meet the needs of U.S. companies in what might be termed the trans-Atlantic flow of capital," said Johnnie Johnson.  "It is a response to the needs of our clients frustrated by existing market offerings.  The concept of value for money has disappeared in recent years and created barriers to companies seeking to develop their European programs.  We are bull- dozing our way through those barrier with the opening of our London office."
    The services provided by Johnson & Co. in London, include:
    -- program planning
    -- investor meetings programs
    -- shareholder identification
    -- investor surveys
    -- financial communications
    "For too long U.S. companies have been led to believe that staging investor meetings in Europe is akin to stepping on the moon in terms of complexities and costs.  They have paid a premium for these services as a result," said Gary Wilson.  "We intend blowing away some of the myths surrounding Europe.  Organizing meetings in London and Paris is no different from organizing meetings in New York and Chicago.  The waiters may speak a different language but "finding a good investment" is the working language of investors.  Everything else is peripheral to the overall objective of establishing and maintaining a European following."
