UTILITY SEMINAR JULY 21 FOCUSES ON STRATEGIES TO DEAL WITH FINANCIALLY TROUBLED CUSTOMERS

 COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP), Ohio Power Company (an AEP operating company) and Cincinnati Gas & Electric Company will co-sponsor a program dealing with financially troubled customers of utilities. The program will be Wednesday, July 21, at the Westin Hotel in Cincinnati, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
 The seminar is designed for in-house counsel and credit professionals of electric and gas utilities and features discussion by several nationally recognized experts in bankruptcy law regarding ways electric and gas utility companies can deal effectively with customers experiencing financial problems. The presenters at the seminar include:
 Jeffrey Baddeley, attorney, Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur, Cleveland;
 Richard Cohen, general counsel, Ohio Power Company, Canton, Ohio;
 Mary Grace Diehl, attorney, Troutman Sanders, Atlanta;
 Clark Hammond, attorney, Balch & Bingham, Birmingham, Ala.
 Scott King, Ernst & Young, Pittsburgh.
 The program has been accredited for Continuing Legal Education credit by the Supreme Court of Ohio. There is no charge for attending the seminar. Lunch is available at a modest price on a cash basis.
 AEP and Ohio Power had sponsored a similar program in August 1992 at the Columbus headquarters of AEP. That seminar attracted representatives from 64 utilities and 13 law firms from across the country.
 "This seminar provides a forum for expanding on our initial discussion and allows utilities to exchange ideas for meeting the challenges they encounter when their customers experience financial difficulties," said Cohen, a host for the seminar. "Managing these situations effectively has become imperative for utilities seeking to protect all their customers from undue financial burdens resulting from uncollectible accounts."
 Due to space limitations, the seminar can accommodate two registrants per organization. If space permits, additional registrants will be notified.
 Further information and registration forms are available by calling the office of Richard Cohen at 216-438-7736.
