This paper is concerned with the class of exterior stationary axisymmetric solutions of the Einstein-Maxwell equations that arise from sources in which the mass is proportional to the charge and the angular momentum is proportional to the magnetic moment. With the use of Ernst's formulation the Einstein-Maxwell equations for this class are reduced to two coupled equations for two unknowns.
