BARRISTER REPORTS FIRST QUARTER RESULTS FOR FY '94

 BUFFALO, N.Y., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Barrister Information Systems Corporation (AMEX: BIS) reported today the results for its fiscal 1994 first quarter. For the quarter ended July 2, 1993, Barrister reported a net loss of $84,000 compared to net earnings of $2,000 for the comparable period last year. Allowing for undeclared preferred stock dividends, there was a loss attributable to common shareholders of $.06 per share for the current quarter compared to a loss of $.03 per share for the same period last year.
 Total revenues for the period increased 7.4 percent to $4,400,000 from $4,095,000 for the comparable period last year. Product revenues increased 14.4 percent to $1,370,000 from $1,198,000 for the prior year's first quarter, while service revenues increased 4.6 percent to $3,030,000 from $2,897,000.
 Henry P. Semmelhack, president of Barrister, stated: "We are pleased that the product revenues and service revenues increased over the comparable quarter last year. In fact, the service revenue increase was the first quarter to quarter increase in three years. The loss of $84,000 for the quarter stems mainly from lower margins on sales in what continues to be an extremely competitive marketplace. However, the overall growth in business encourages us that our business is on the right track. We continue to maintain tight control of salaries and operating expenses. To grow our service business we recently hired a number of additional sales people who are expected to add to service and product sales this coming year. In addition, there is continuing positive interest in our new legal software product Javelan(TM), and we are hopeful that licensing of this product will contribute to our revenues and profits this year."
