PLASMA-THERM, INC. ANNOUNCES FISCAL 1992 INFORMATION

 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Dec. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Plasma-Therm, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTIS) today announced fiscal 1992 information for the interim period until its annual report due out in March 1993.
 The company noted that the following information represents preliminary unaudited numbers for fiscal 1992 that are approximated for informative purposes only. The company anticipates revenues of approximately $17,800,000 (including royalty income) with operating profits of $1,500,000 before taxes, through tax credits, a one-time inventory write-down and operating losses due to its former subsidiary, RF Power Products and spin-off related charges. The company stated it expects an approximate break-even in profits for fiscal 1992.
 The company has gone through major product changes over the last year by continuing to revamp its Batch product line and introducing a new automated product line called Clusterlock. This major product development effort has resulted in product shipments in fiscal 1992 with a positive impact expected in fiscal 1993.
 This new product development will allow the company to better service its existing and future markets through higher quality hardware, allowing the penetration of leading edge technologies through advance process capabilities. These developments coupled with lower manufacturing costs, will give the company the competitive edge over its competition, the company said.
 The company has expanded its product capabilities into new emerging markets such as disc drive head manufacturing, high performance compound semiconductor, failure analysis and leading edge research and development. These markets are competitive but have far less competition than its existing semiconductor equipment market. the company said it is working hard to increase market share in all of these areas.
 The company's future success for 1993 will be based on the world market economy and continued market acceptance of its existing and new products, which should enjoy a life of approximately five years. The company continues to maintain a sound balance sheet, with a low debt- equity ratio, while maintaining a strong cash position. The combination of a strong cash position, minimal bank debt and established credit lines, leave Plasma-Therm in a position of no new cash requirements for fiscal 1993.
 Plasma-Therm, Inc., headquartered in St. Petersburg, is a producer of plasma process equipment primarily used by manufacturers requiring expertise in reactive ion etching and thin film deposition.
