 CRAY RESEARCH REPORTS 1991 REVENUE AND EARNINGS GROWTH
 EAGAN, Minn., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Cray Research, Inc.


(NYSE: CYR) reported today revenue of $862,457,000, net earnings of $113,047,000, or $4.15 per share for the 12-month period ended Dec. 31, 1991. This compares with revenue of $804,380,000, net earnings of $112,994,000, and earnings per share of $4.02 for the same period a year ago.
 Revenue for the fourth quarter was $316,536,000, compared with $254,855,000 a year ago; net earnings for the quarter were $59,629,000, or $2.15 per share, versus $33,383,000, or $1.21 per share a year ago.
 During 1991, Cray Research installed systems and upgrades at customer sites with a net contract value of $642 million. This compares with $652 million of net contract value for systems and upgrades installed at customer sites in 1990. Of the customer systems installed in 1991, 68 were new and 14 were used.
 John A. Rollwagen, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "We are pleased to report that we met our revenue and earnings objectives for 1991. Our revenue was up seven percent and earnings per share was up three percent over 1990's results, which is a remarkable accomplishment given the current state of the computer industry.
 "In spite of the slowness in the economy, we signed orders with 58 new customers in 1991, more than in any previous year in our history. Order signing was particularly strong in the fourth quarter, totaling approximately $352 million in net contract value versus $317 million in the fourth quarter of 1990. Total net contract value of orders signed for systems and upgrades in 1991 was $654 million compared with $660 million in 1990. Our backlog at year end was $350 million compared with $338 million at year end 1990.
 "Looking at our current order backlog and prospect list, we continue to see a way to increase revenue eight to ten percent in 1992, with most of the business concentrated in the second half of the year when the industry leading CRAY Y-MP C90 computer system will be fully available."
 In a separate action, Cray Research's Board of Directors today at its regularly scheduled meeting, authorized the company to repurchase up to 1.5 million shares of common stock. The company said it will use the authority from time to time, depending on market and business conditions.
 Cray Research, Inc. creates the most powerful, high quality computational tools for solving the world's most challenging scientific and industrial problems.
