DOSKOCIL PROJECTS RESULTS FOR THIRD AND FOURTH QUARTER

 DOSKOCIL PROJECTS RESULTS FOR THIRD AND FOURTH QUARTER
 HUTCHINSON, Kan., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Doskocil Companies


Incorporated (NASDAQ: DOSK) announced that today it has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a current report on Form 8-K relating to its previously announced filing of a registration statement for its common stock.
 The company has included in the registration statement operating forecast for the third and fourth quarter of 1992. The forecast for the third quarter operating income is $7.3 million compared to third quarter 1991 actual results of $5.7 million. The anticipated improvement relates to an unexpected 8 percent increase in sales weight over the same period last year. Net income for the third quarter is forecasted at $2.5 million. The forecast for the fourth quarter operating income is $12.6 million compared to actual results in the fourth quarter of 1991 of $10.3 million. The anticipated improvement relates to an expected 7 percent increase in sales weight and a 5 percent improvement in per pound margins as the result of manufacturing efficiencies and product mix changes. Net income for the fourth quarter is forecasted to be $6.9 million.
 The company cautions that forecasts and actual results will vary because events and circumstances do not occur as expected, and those variations may be material. The public is cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forecasts. In connection with the company's Chapter 11 reorganization, a disclosure statement dated June 25, 1991, contained financial projections through 1995. Those projections are outdated and should no longer be relied upon. This press release shall not constitute and offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities.
 Doskocil, and its subsidiary Wilson Foods Corporation, specialize in formulating, processing and marketing boneless hams, dry sausage and other pre-cooked meat products for the foodservice, delicatessen and retail markets. The company also supplies beef and pork toppings and pepperoni to the pizza foodservice market as well as pre-cooked boneless hams to the retail market.
