PINKERTON'S INC. COMMENTS ON A REUTERS REPORT

 VAN NUYS, Calif., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinkerton's Inc. (NASDAQ: PKTN) indicated today that a Reuters Economic Service report transmitted on June 4 following a telephonic interview with company management inadequately portrayed the company's reaction to an analyst's estimate of second quarter earnings.
 Mr. Robert J. Vitamante, chief financial officer, stated, "In characterizing the analyst's second quarter estimate of 22 cents to 24 cents per share (vs. 16 cents in the 1992 period) as `in the right ballpark' the Reuters report failed to indicate that the ballpark represented a span of analyst projections ranging generally from 20 cents to 25 cents per share with which the company had previously indicated a degree of comfort. Hence, without that frame of reference, the Reuters quote might be misconstrued by investors."
