(CHICAGO, May 20, 1999) -- Wolters Kluwer U.S. (WK) said today that it has acquired Telecommunications Reports International, Inc. (TRI), Washington, DC, a publisher of information and newsletters for the telecommunications industry. The company will become a subsidiary of CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), Riverwoods, Ill., a WK company and a leading provider of tax and business law information. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The acquisition includes the weekly newsletter Telecommunications Reports, TRI’s flagship publication and widely regarded as the journal of record for the telecommunications industry. The sale also includes the customized telecommunications reporting service, TR Insight, the electronic report, TR Daily, and a number of subject-specific publications such as TRI Journal, TR Wireless News, State and Local Communications Report, Report on Smart Cards and Report on Electronic Commerce.

The addition of the TRI publications to CCH’s Business and Finance Group allows the company to supplement its line of legal and regulatory publications for specialized industries, such as telecommunications, energy, financial institutions, insurance, and government contracting.
