Dividend Notification Declaration

Johnson Fry Utilities Trust PLC
22 May 2000


INTERIM DIVIDENDS FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDING 31 DECEMBER 2000

The Directors of Johnson Fry Utilities Trust PLC, an investment trust which
invests primarily in securities of international utility and utility-related
companies, have declared a first interim dividend of 2.0p net (1999: 1.38p
net) per Ordinary 25p share and 2.0p net (1999: 1.38p net) per Income 25p
share.  This represents an increase of 45% over the dividends paid for the
equivalent period last year. In the absence of unforseen circumstances, total
dividends for the year ending 31 December 2000 will be not less than 8.5p net
per Income share and the same per Ordinary share, which will amount to a 35%
increase on total dividends in the previous year.* 

The first interim dividends will be paid on 20 June 2000 to shareholders on
the register at the close of business on 5 June 2000.

* These are expected dividends only and are not intended to be, nor should
they be taken as, a forecast of profits.
