REUTERS EXPECTS BOOST FROM NEW PRODUCTS

 REUTERS EXPECTS BOOST FROM NEW PRODUCTS
 LONDON, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Good progress in bringing on new


products will contribute to Reuters' revenue growth in 1993 and beyond, Sir Christopher Hogg, chairman of Reuters Holdings PLC (NASDAQ: RTRSY), told the company's shareholders at today's annual general meeting.
 In the absence of any general upsurge in financial markets, the 1992 outlook remained unchanged from February, when the company said revenue growth was expected to slow this year, he said.
 Sir Christopher added that a major milestone was passed yesterday with the launch of Dealing 2000-2, Reuters' automated foreign exchange trading system, at 22 banking sites in London and New York.
 Reuters revenue rose 7.1 percent to 1,466.6 million pounds sterling in the year to Dec. 31, 1991, from 1,369.0 million pounds the previous year. Pre-tax profit rose by 6.3 percent to 340.3 million pounds from 320.1 million pounds.
 Reuters Holdings supplies the global business community and news media with a wide range of products, including real-time financial data, transaction systems, access to numerical and textual historical databases, news and news pictures. Reuters has a controlling interest in Visnews, the international television news agency, and Reuter Group companies design and install trading room systems. Information is obtained from around 180 exchanges and over-the-counter markets, from some 3,860 subscribers who contribute data directly to Reuters, and from a network of about 1,300 journalists, photographers and cameramen. Reuters distributes information through approximately 202,000 video terminals. This includes clients' own terminals that receive Reuter data.
