 ELECTROCOM AUTOMATION REPORTS HIGHER RESULTS
 FOR THIRD QUARTER AND FIRST NINE MONTHS
 DALLAS, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- ElectroCom Automation Inc. (NYSE: ECA) today reported strong gains in sales and earnings for its 1992 third quarter and first nine months over those of a year ago.
 Net income for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 1992, was $7,930,000, or 29 cents per share, an increase of 37 percent from the $5,784,000 earned in the same period of 1991. Third quarter sales rose 119 percent to $164,017,000 from $74,747,000 in the comparable 1991 period.
 For the first nine months, ElectroCom had net income of $20,961,000, or 77 cents per share, up 58 percent from 1991's nine month income of $13,276,000 or 50 cents per share. Sales for the first nine months of 1992 were $381,069,000, an increase of 78 percent above the $213,760,000 recorded in the same period of the prior year.
 R. S. Buzard, ElectroCom's president and chief executive officer, said, "The majority of the increases in sales and net income relate to a contract with the U.S. Postal Service under which deliveries of automated bar code sorting systems began in June 1991."
 Reflected also in the nine month 1992 results were certain contract milestones reached during the first quarter, and the beginning of deliveries in the second quarter of our Image Processing Subsystem program. The IPSS system allows the automated processing of mail which cannot be read by machine.
 Buzard commented that while he was pleased with the 1992 operating results, the delay in action on the award of several USPS contracts, including DBCS II, was a concern. He said that while further delay in award of these contracts beyond November now appears likely, he remains optimistic that the USPS will take action on the contracts prior to the end of the first quarter of 1993, but stated that if action continues to be delayed or is unfavorable to ElectroCom, 1993 results could be impacted.
