 HORIZON INDUSTRIES ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER RESULTS
 CALHOUN, Ga., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Horizon Industries, Inc.


(NASDAQ: HRZN) today announced improved sales and earnings results for the first quarter of fiscal 1992, ended Dec. 28, 1991. For the quarter, net earnings were $929,000, or 17 cents per share, compared to $49,000, or 1 cent per share, in the same period last year. Net sales $77,925,000 were 17 percent higher than the $66,801,000 recorded in the prior year's first quarter. Book value at Dec. 28, 1991 was $54,482,000, or $9.91 per share.
 Commenting on the results, Peter R. Spirer, chairman, stated, "It is gratifying to report sharply higher first quarter results which we believe are attributable to Horizon's successful 1991 product introductions. Even during a period of soft industry demand, customers respond favorably to fashion innovation and style differentiation, the cornerstones of Horizon's marketing thrust." Spirer continued, "Because of increased demand for our products, we maintained gross profit margins and improved profitability from the year-ago quarter. We expect continued improvement over last year's performance throughout fiscal 1992."
