 ABRAMS REPORTS FIRST QUARTER RESULTS
 ATLANTA, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Abrams Industries, Inc.


(NASDAQ: ABRI) -- construction, manufacturing, real estate -- announced today at its annual meeting of shareholders that for the first quarter ended July 31 the company had net earnings of $151,461, or $.05 per share, compared to net earnings of $253,721 or $.09 per share, for the same quarter last year.
 Revenues for the current quarter were $19,629,029, down from last year's $23,138,744, and backlog of business at July 31 was $31,172,000 compared to last year's $32,999,000. All current figures are unaudited and all per-share amounts are based on weighted average outstanding shares of 2,977,540. Both the Construction and Manufacturing Segments were profitable. The Real Estate Segment sustained a loss primarily attributed to depreciation (a non-cash expense), and a one-time charge to earnings associated with the refinancing of a real estate loan.
 On Aug. 26, the board of directors declared a quarterly dividend of $.02 per share (the 53rd consecutive quarterly dividend), payable Sept. 25 to shareholders of record Sept. 10. The dividend reduction from $.05 in the previous quarter was prompted by the desire to conserve cash.
 The company announced the re-election of six directors and the election of the following four new directors: Paula Lawton Bevington, Felker W. Ward Jr., Alan R. Abrams, and J. Andrew Abrams.
 Atlanta-based Abrams Industries, Inc. is in its 68th year.
