The company and its consolidated subsidiaries had a net loss of $2,251,572 or ($1.09) per common share, for the three months ended Sept. 30, 1993, on sales of $4,547,120 as compared with a net loss of ($12,172,327) or ($5.91) per share, on sales of $22,491,195 in the third quarter of 1992.

 Santiago De Tomaso, president of De Tomaso Industries, noted, "the sale in the second quarter of 1993 of the company's equity interest in Maserati has had a market effect on reducing losses from operations in the third quarter of this year."
 "While efforts to identify and negotiate with potential investors, joint ventures and buyers for the company's GBM motorcycle manufacturing subsidiary are proceeding, it would be premature to comment further on those discussions," said De Tomaso. "It is hoped that some resolution will be had within the next sixty to ninety days, at which time a shareholders' meeting will be held and plans for the future, including a possible liquidation or cash-out merger, will be discussed."

The U.S. dollar equivalent amounts are included solely for the convenience of the shareholders of De Tomaso Industries, Inc. It should not be construed that the assets and liabilities, expressed in U.S. dollar equivalents, can actually be realized in or extinguished by U.S. dollars at the exchange rates used in the accompanying translation because of fluctuations in the rate of exchange.
 (B) Net income per share for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 1993 is computed on the number of common stock and common stock equivalents outstanding at all times during such periods. Net loss per share for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 1992 and the three months ended Sept. 30, 1992 is computed on the number of shares of common stock outstanding, and without regard to the preferred stock outstanding because to do so would be anti-dilutive,
