 EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS ESTIMATES SECOND-QUARTER EARNINGS
 MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Employee Benefit Plans, Inc.


(EBP)(NYSE: EBP), today estimated results for the second quarter ended Nov. 30, 1991. The company anticipates revenues of approximately $53.4 million and operating earnings of approximately $6.0 million, compared with $38.2 million and $4.5 million, respectively, over the year-earlier period. The company expects net income of approximately $2.8 million or $0.34 per share, compared with $2.4 million or $0.34 per share a year ago. In addition, the company estimates a loss ratio of approximately 52.1 percent for the quarter, compared with 52.4 percent for the first fiscal quarter ended Aug. 31, 1991.
 The company attributes its lower-than-expected results to a 39 percent revenue increase, compared with an approximate 43 percent increase forecasted by securities analysts. The company also said its interest income was lower than anticipated due to declining short-term interest rates, resulting in lower invested asset yields.
 EBP will issue a full release concurrently with its 10-Q on Jan. 14.
