PR Newswire and Thomson team up for IR service

PR Newswire has formed an alliance with Thomson Financial to

deliver joint services to the investor relations sector.



The deal is the first between the two companies and includes a link-up

between PR Newswire's webcasting capabilities with Thomson's First Call

network.



The network is promoted as a real-time broker research and information

service.



Thomson says it reaches as many as 45,000 desktops worldwide.



PR Newswire Europe director Mark Hynes and Thomson corporate MD Kevin

Brady are co-ordinating the service.



Hynes said: 'This is the biggest deal of its kind that we have

undertaken and is big news for those involved in IR.'



First Call subscribers will have access to real-time webcasts of US

corporate earnings announcements.
