ANDREW CORPORATION REPORTS INCREASED FIRST QUARTER SALES AND EARNINGS

 ANDREW CORPORATION REPORTS INCREASED FIRST QUARTER SALES AND EARNINGS
 ORLAND PARK, Ill., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrew Corporation (NASDAQ: ANDW) reported increased sales and net income for the first quarter ended Dec. 31, 1991.
 Sales for the first quarter were $99.1 million, a two percent increase over $96.8 million for the same period a year ago.
 Net income for the period was $4.1 million, up five percent from $3.9 million in last year's first quarter. Earnings per common share were $.42 compared with $.41, an increase of 2 percent.
 Orders for the period increased four percent to $100.7 million compared with $97.1 million the previous year. Backlog expected to be shipped over the next 12 months was $110.5, essentially equal to last year's backlog. Total funded backlog of $120.2 million was up one percent from the prior year.
 Floyd L. English, president and chief executive officer, said, "Several significant factors affected the first quarter's results. The costs to fix unexpected technical problems in the bi-directional amplifiers used in our distributed communications system kept earnings for the quarter from meeting our expectations. These problems, which cost approximately $1,000,000 or $.06 in earnings per share in the quarter, have been corrected. No further costs related to these problems are expected.
 "As reported earlier, we succeeded in booking a major follow-on order for government intelligence equipment. This $6.5 million order is for two systems which will be shipped in fiscal 1992 and 1993. The order is important because it will help us to achieve our objective of making the Government business profitable by year end.
 "Two other orders were significant in the quarter. A $2.3 million order was received from NBC for a major new teleport in Charlotte, N.C. INDONMET, a weather monitoring project in Indonesia, placed $1.0 million in orders for small diameter earth station antennas. These orders will help improve margins in our earth station antenna business.
 "Although personal communications markets in the U.S. and Europe were stagnant compared to last year, orders were especially strong for Network Products in Europe and Japan," Dr. English said. "That order strength contributed significantly to making Network Products profitable in the December quarter.
 "Our enthusiasm for fiscal 1992 is tempered by worldwide economic conditions and a slowing of orders early in the first quarter, a situation that improved significantly in December. On balance, we are cautiously optimistic that we will have another record year in 1992."
