ANDREW CORPORATION REPORTS RECORD FIRST-QUARTER RESULTS

 ORLAND PARK, Ill., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrew Corporation's (NASDAQ: ANDW) sales, net income and earnings per share set first- quarter records for the three months ended Dec. 31, 1992.
 Sales rose to $101.0 million in the first quarter, a 2 percent gain over sales of $99.1 million for the prior year's December quarter. Net income increased 17 percent to $4.8 million from $4.1 million for the same period a year ago. Earnings per share increased 36 percent to $.57, up from $.42. There were 14 percent fewer average shares outstanding in the first quarter of fiscal 1993 because of a stock repurchase program in July 1992.
 Orders totaling $99.2 million for the first quarter were 1.5 percent below orders of $100.7 million for the December 1991 quarter. At Dec. 31, 1992, backlog expected to be shipped over the next 12 months was $79.6 million compared with $83.9 million at Sept. 30, 1992, and $110.5 million at Dec. 31, 1991. The continuing reduction in backlog reflects the company's ongoing efforts of improving order turnaround. Floyd L. English, president and chief executive officer, said, "Andrew Corporation is off to an impressive start in fiscal 1993. The benefits of cost reduction efforts and sales of higher margin products helped improve gross margins in the first quarter of fiscal 1993. In addition, technical problems with the bi-directional amplifiers, which added approximately $1.0 million to cost of sales in the December 1991 quarter, are now behind us.
 "Based on Andrew Corporation's first-quarter performance and with economic conditions improving, we are cautiously optimistic about achieving another record year for sales and net income," English said.
 Andrew Corporation is a global communications equipment supplier serving businesses and governments.
