Earvin 'Magic' Johnson Acknowledges Johnson Publishing Company; Unable to Make an Agreement to Buy Ebony, Jet and Johnson Publishing Company

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22 PRNewswire USNewswire - The following is a statement from Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Chairman and CEO, Magic Johnson Enterprises:

"I would like to salute Linda Johnson Rice and the Johnson family for pioneering the iconic brand of the Johnson Publishing Company, which we have all come to love and respect. Ebony and Jet have been permanent fixtures on coffee tables in African-American homes for many years.

Recently, an affiliate of Magic Johnson Enterprises and Johnson Publishing Company were in advanced discussions to do business together, but unfortunately we were unable to reach a definitive agreement. We will continue to look for opportunities to invest in African-American media."
