ALOETTE COSMETICS, INC. REPORTS FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

 WEST CHESTER, Pa., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Aloette Cosmetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALET) reported total revenues of $3.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 1993 versus $5.1 million in 1992. Net income for the first quarter totalled $103,000, or $.05 per share, versus a $7,000 net loss in 1992. Net income for the first quarter of 1992 was impacted by the adoption of SFAS No. 109 "Accounting for Income Taxes" which resulted in a one-time charge of $290,000, or $.14 per share. Other income for the first quarter of 1993 included an insurance reimbursement of $150,000 with regard to a lawsuit against a former officer of the company.
 The reduction in revenues and net income for the first quarter of 1993 is primarily attributable to a $1.2 million decrease in net product sales to the company's franchises. This decrease had been expected as franchises depleted inventory levels in anticipation of the introduction of the company's new product packaging which was scheduled to be launched in the United States and Canada, in April and May, 1993, respectively.
 John H. Teaford, Aloette's new president commented, "The Spring launch of our new product packaging has generated considerable excitement among the sales force, and we anticipate a positive impact on net product sales to Aloette franchises in the second quarter."
 Aloette Cosmetics, a franchisor, direct marketer, and manufacturer of skin care products and cosmetics is located in West Chester, Pa. As of March 31, 1993, the company's products were being sold by over 100 franchises worldwide.
