ELCOR SAYS THAT LATEST SECURITY ANALYST ESTIMATE FOR SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER EARNINGS APPEARS REASONABLE

 /REPEATING FOR POINTS NEEDED/
 DALLAS, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Elcor Corporation (NYSE: ELK) today


said that the latest report by a security analyst with The Principal/Eppler, Guerin & Turner, Inc., calling for substantially higher third and fourth quarter earnings, appears reasonable. The new report forecasts earnings before extraordinary item of $1.00 per share, up 25 percent from a previous forecast of $.80 per share, for Elcor's second half ending June 30, 1993.
 Further, Elcor said that the analyst Jessica Tully's estimate of earnings before extraordinary item of $1.90 per share for its fiscal year ending June 30, 1993 appears to be reasonable. In its fiscal year ending June 30, 1992, Elcor reported earnings before extraordinary items of $.59 per share.
 Elcor had previously said that earnings before extraordinary items in both the third and fourth quarters were expected to match or exceed second quarter earnings of $.38 per share. Last year Elcor reported a loss before extraordinary items of $.05 per share in its third quarter and earnings before extraordinary items of $.27 per share in its fourth quarter, for a total of $.22 per share for its second half.
 Roy E. Campbell, president of Elcor, said, "Continuing strong demand for the company's Elk Prestique(R) premium laminated fiberglass asphalt shingles, combined with improving performance of its industrial products operations, support improved expectations for earnings in the second half.
 "There are opportunities for even further improvement in earnings during the second half. However, the possible impact of uncertain weather conditions at this time of year which may delay reroofing work in the months ahead, make it premature to forecast further improvements at this point.
 "In any event, Fiscal 1993 earnings should be at the highest level ever, and Elcor is well-positioned for continuing growth in subsequent years," he concluded.
