MEDICAL GRAPHICS ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER ESTIMATES

 MEDICAL GRAPHICS ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER ESTIMATES
 ST. PAUL, Minn., July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Graphics Corporation


(NASDAQ: MGCC) announced today that it expects to report record sales for the quarter ended June 30, 1992. However, the company believes its earnings will be lower than analyst expectations.
 Earnings were affected by increased expenses incurred during the quarter to improve the performance of a component in the new product line featuring disposable parts. The company learned that a transducer could be affected by wide temperature changes, so the transducer was re-engineered to operate in a variety of environments. "We believe the transducer issue is now behind us," said Catherine Anderson, chairman, president and CEO. "All of the products delivered in the second quarter incorporated this new transducer."
 The transducer problem was limited to the company's international markets, where daily temperature changes are often encountered in non-temperature controlled environments. International sales were therefore affected until the transducer was re-engineered late in the quarter, causing approximately a 15 percent reduction in international sales over the same period last year.
 However, domestic sales increased 30-35 percent over the same period in 1991, a record increase for the company. "The dramatic increase in domestic sales is proof that our new products are being embraced by the marketplace," said Anderson. The company believes international sales will rebound in the third quarter.
 Medical Graphics Corporation designs, manufactures and markets non- invasive diagnostic systems for the prevention, early detection and cost-effective treatment of heart and lung disease, the leading causes of death and rising health care costs.
