ELDEC REPORTS FIRST-QUARTER RESULTS

 ELDEC REPORTS FIRST-QUARTER RESULTS
 LYNNWOOD, Wash., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- ELDEC Corp.


(NASDAQ: ELDC) reported improved results for the first quarter of fiscal 1993 compared to the same period a year earlier. Sales for the quarter, which ended June 28, 1992, were $27.7 million, up 13 percent from the $24.5 million in sales last year.
 Primarily as the result of an accounting change, net income was $655,000, or 12 cents a share. In contrast, there was a loss of 40 cents per share for the same period last year. The accounting change involves how employee benefit costs are accounted for.
 From continuing company operations -- operations exclusive of the accounting change and also excluding the cost of the DUNLOP-ELDEC settlement, a recently dissolved joint venture in England -- there was a profit of $162,000, or 3 cents per share. However, during the quarter, ELDEC paid an after-tax settlement amounting to $180,000 to close the joint venture, which resulted in a net loss from operations of $18,000. According to ELDEC Chief Executive Officer Max Gellert, the settlement eliminates any potential future liabilities involving the joint venture.
 The backlog, which stands at $149.2 million, is 21 percent higher than the $123.2-million backlog at this time a year ago. However, the amount shippable in 12 months -- $78.4 million -- is 13 percent less than the $89.8 million of a year ago.
 ELDEC custom designs and manufactures electronic and electromechanical systems for aerospace and defense applications. Founded in 1957, the company is a subcontractor to a large number of major aerospace and defense electronics contractors.
