A. L. LABORATORIES ELABORATES ON SECOND QUARTER EARNINGS RELEASE

 FORT LEE, N.J., July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- A. L. Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BMD) elaborated on its earnings results released earlier today and the information previously disclosed in its June 25th press release.
 The company is experiencing volume increases in all of its businesses and expects this growth to continue. A. L. Laboratories continues to make a major investment in building the fourth business segment of the company, Oral Health Care. A. L. Laboratories is excited about the additional approvals received this year in Oral Health Care for Elyzol Dentalgel and Dumicoat and in U.S. pharmaceuticals for Epinephrine and Clotrimazole. The company anticipates the receipt of additional approvals for both its Oral Health Care and Pharmaceutical businesses.
 The company said that, however, an analysis of trends that have developed recently, specifically the impact of foreign currency and lower pricing on its pharmaceutical business, delays in new product approvals both in Europe and the U.S., and FDA's action related to its industry-wide request to discontinue marketing products containing iodinated glycerol, indicates that there will probably be a negative impact on the second half of 1993. In assessing the above factors, the company believes that for 1993 it will be difficult to equal 1992 earnings from continuing operations. These same factors may affect the anticipated earnings growth in 1994.
