WELLS-GARDNER ANNOUNCES SALES OF TRANSPORTATION MONITORS; JANUARY, FEBRUARY SALES UP 90 PERCENT, BACKLOG MORE THAN DOUBLE FROM LAST YEAR

CHICAGO, March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Wells-Gardner Electronics Corp. (AMEX: WGA) today announced its first major shipment of transportation monitors, a market the company entered only recently.

"Delivering these monitors, which will display arrivals and departures at a major U.S. international airport, represent a significant step in our penetration of a market we entered just last November," said Anthony Spier, Wells-Gardner's chairman and chief executive officer. "We are delighted to have made a major sale so quickly in a market that we are counting on as part of our overall growth strategy. We filled this order with our new 27-inch VGA monitors, which have proven highly adaptable to several markets.

"In addition, our sales in January and February are 90 percent higher than the same two months in 1995," Spier said. "This is a result of our high year-end backlog, and reflects an increase in sales in almost all segments. Our orders also have remained very strong for the first two months of the year and have kept our backlog at a high level -- more than double the backlog for February 1995. This bodes well for the rest of the first quarter and the second quarter."

Wells-Gardner is the world's only ISO 9001 manufacturer of open frame video monitors for the industrial, amusement, gaming and commercial markets. It has a customer base which is growing both domestically and internationally.
