 VIATECH REPORTS RECORD PROFITS
 SYOSSET, N.Y., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Viatech, Inc. (AMEX: VTK)


Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer Donald J. Bainton today announced record profits for the third quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 1991.
 Revenues for the third quarter of 1991 amounted to $89,216,000 compared with $95,397,000 in the third quarter of 1990. Bainton noted that reduced sales in the third quarter of 1991 resulted from foreign currency translation rate differences of approximately 10 percent over 1990 despite an increase in local currency sales at each of the company's European packaging subsidiaries. Net income for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 1991, increased significantly over the same prior year period, reaching $4,199,000, or $1.41 per share, vs. $1,875,000, or $1.07 per share.
 For the first nine months of 1991, revenues were $228,045,000 as compared to $215,871,000 in the same prior year period. Net income for the 1991 nine month period was a record $6,901,000, or $2.90 per share, compared to $3,736,000, or $2.16 per share.
 Bainton credited the record profits in each period to the improved utilization and cost reductions, lower net interest expense, and the acquisition of minority interests in Dixie Union and Ferembal during the third quarter of 1991. Bainton also noted that even with the dilution resulting from the sale of common stock in June 1991, third quarter 1991 earnings per share increased 33 percent over the same prior year period.
