EDMARK REPORTS SECOND-QUARTER RESULTS AND NEW SOFTWARE AWARD

 REDMOND, Wash., Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Edmark Corp. (NASDAQ: EDMK) today announced results for the second quarter of fiscal year 1993. The company also announced that its new product, Millie's Math House, won the coveted MacUser Magazine Editors' Choice Award as the Best Children's Software Program of 1992.
 Sales for the second fiscal quarter, which ended on Dec. 31, 1992, were $2,343,546, up 117 percent from the second quarter of fiscal year 1992. Net earnings for the quarter were $98,723, compared with net earnings of $22,804 for the year-ago quarter. Per-share earnings for the second quarter were 3 cents compared with 1 cent in the second quarter of fiscal year 1992.
 "We are very pleased with our entry into the retail market," reported Sally Narodick, chief executive officer. "Our new products, Millie's Math House and KidDesk, received several prestigious awards, favorable reviews and wonderful comments from customers.
 "The significant sales and earnings increases over last year's second quarter reflect the impact of our new retail products which first shipped in October. They also reflect the changing seasonality of the company's business. This year's strong Christmas quarter compares against a seasonally slow quarter in the education market," commented Narodick.
 For the six month years to date, sales were $4,304,095, up 63 percent from the year-ago period. Net earnings were $179,163, or 6 cents per share, compared to $161,834, or 7 cents per share, for the six months of fiscal 1992. Per-share earnings were down because of the greater number of shares outstanding in the current period.
 "We expect retail marketing expenses to continue to impact profitability until we have a broader complement of retail products," commented Narodick. The company's newest product, Bailey's Book House, will be released this summer.
