       CORNING FOURTH-QUARTER EARNINGS:  45 CENTS PER SHARE
          POST-SPLIT BASIS; 90 CENTS PER SHARE PRE-SPLIT
    CORNING, N.Y., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today noted that the Tuesday, Jan. 21, edition of the Wall Street Journal's "Abreast of the Market" column, inaccurately reflected the company's fourth-quarter performance and analysts' expectations thereof.
    According to the story, Corning's earnings "were significantly lower than expectations," but the reported fourth-quarter, at 45 cents a share represents the company's earnings on a post-split basis.  On a pre-split basis the earnings would be 90 cents per share -- in line with analyst expectations.
    Corning announced Dec. 4 it would split its common stock on a 2-for-1 basis.  Trading of Corning shares commenced Jan. 16 on the New York Stock Exchange on a "when issued" basis as well as a pre-split basis.
