APERTUS ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

 MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Apertus Technologies Incorporated (NASDAQ: APTS) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended Sept. 26, 1993. Revenues for the quarter were $4,867,000 as compared with revenues of $5,796,000 for the same period last year. Net income (loss) for the quarter was $(480,000) compared to $344,000 for the same quarter last year. The company's cash position is $22,200,000, which is approximately $900,000 greater than last quarter primarily due to terms associated with the leasing of its former headquarters.
 "Although we are disappointed with our second quarter results, the Enterprise Systems Group had another strong quarter and our Internetworking Group's commercial expansion achieved record results," said Robert D. Gordon, chairman and chief executive officer of Apertus. "Unfortunately those efforts were not sufficient to offset a very difficult selling environment in our historical Bell Operating Company customer base and the continuing decline in our older peripheral products. The outlook for the second half of the year is better, but it may be difficult to achieve growth in revenues and profitability for the fiscal year."
