ANNOUNCES RECORD 1992 REVENUES AND EARNINGS

 WEST CHESTER, Pa., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Roy F. Weston, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTNA) (WESTON)(R) today announced record net income of $7.2 million for 1992, or $.79 per share, compared to $5.1 million, or $.58 per share in 1991, an increase of 40 percent.
 The Company reported record net revenues of $222.1 million, an increase of 5 percent over 1991 net revenues of $211.3 million. Gross revenues rose 5 percent to $330.2 million from $315 million in 1991.
 Fourth quarter net income in 1992 was $1.8 million or $.20 per share, an increase of 38 percent, compared with $1.3 million or $.15 in the fourth quarter of 1991. Net revenues rose 3 percent to $56.2 million compared with $54.5 million in the fourth quarter of 1991. Gross revenues increased 2 percent to $84.8 million from $83 million in the fourth quarter of 1991.
 New contract bookings for the fourth quarter were $60 million, led by strong activity in the industrial and state and local government sectors. Fourth quarter bookings were up 4 percent from last year, and new contract bookings for the year also increased 4 percent over 1991.
 "We are pleased to complete the year with record revenues and earnings, especially in light of the challenging economic environment of 1992. I believe there are several reasons why WESTON continued to grow in the fourth quarter and all of 1992," said William J. Marrazzo, WESTON President and CEO. "The diversity and balance of our business mix of consulting, analytical, engineering and remediation services were strong contributors to WESTON's increased earnings. In particular, there was significant improvement in our analytical and thermal treatment groups relative to 1991. Geographically, our national presence enabled us to balance weaker business conditions in some regions with positioning in other regions of the United States.
 "WESTON's diverse client base was instrumental in our performance as well. In a year in which many industrial, state and local government clients delayed projects, the federal government continued to focus on environmental cleanup through the Department of Defense and the Department of Energy, purchasing top quality environmental services from nationally recognized firms, including WESTON," Marrazzo continued.
 "Our operating margins showed significant improvement. In the fourth quarter of 1992 operating margins were 6.2 percent of net revenues, compared to 4.9 percent in the 1991 period. For the full year, WESTON's operating margin increased to 6.4 percent in 1992, from 5.3 percent in 1991. We intend to continue expanding our margins and controlling costs as we focus on the competitive marketplace we face in today's environmental business," concluded Marrazzo.
 WESTON is a nationwide environmental engineering, design and consulting firm specializing in analytical services, remediation, facility construction and operations, technical information management and major program services for government and industry. The company is headquartered in West Chester, and operates a national network of 45 offices, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Boston, Atlanta and Washington.
