DATAKEY REPORTS THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

 DATAKEY REPORTS THIRD QUARTER RESULTS
 MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Datakey, Inc.


(NASDAQ-NMS: DKEY) today reported total revenue for the third quarter ended Sept. 25, 1992, of $1,067,877, compared with $1,841,498 in the third quarter of 1991. Net loss for the quarter was $127,003, or 4 cents per share, versus a net income of $346,708, or 11 cents per share, last year.
 Revenue for the nine-month period ended Sept. 25, 1992, was $4,169,848 compared to $5,973,605 for the 1991 period. Net income for the nine-month period ended Sept. 25, 1992, was $156,791, or 5 cents per share, versus $1,140,484, or 35 cents per share, last year.
 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Underwood said, "Datakey's third-quarter revenue and earnings were lower than those of the 1992 second quarter and well below results for the same period last year. The revenue decline stems from a combination of factors including the sluggish economy, which has limited new orders from our major customers, and a continued decline in key shipments for the government's secure telephone program.
 "We expect sales and earnings to be improved in the fourth quarter. In addition, we expect both the quarter and the year to be profitable. At the same time, we continue to anticipate significantly lower sales and earnings for the year when compared to 1991 results."
 Underwood added, "The company is continuing to pursue several strategies to revitalize its core business and is also exploring other ways to improve its long-term financial performance. Datakey's entire management team and staff are focused on increasing the company's revenues and we have sufficient cash to support this effort."
