 IRVINE, Calif., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Enhanced Imaging Technologies (EIT) Inc. (NASDAQ: EITI) today reported results of the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 1993. Revenues for the quarter were $12,521,000, compared with $11,374,000 for the second quarter of 1992. Net income was $300,000 or 5 cents per share, as compared to net income in the second quarter of 1992 of $1,292,000 or 21 cents per share. Weighted average common shares and equivalents for the second quarter ended June 30, 1993, were 6,468,773, compared with 6,292,751 for the quarter ended June 30, 1992.
 Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 1993, were $22,848,000, compared with $22,409,000 for the same period in 1992. Net income for this year's six-month period was $418,000 or 7 cents per share, compared with net income of $2,206,000 or 38 cents per share, for the six months ended June 30, 1992. Weighted average common shares and equivalents during the six months ended June 30, 1993, were 6,410,468, compared with 5,875,781 for the six months ended June 30, 1992.
 "The second quarter reflects continued revenue growth from the medical products and services segment of EIT, which includes Vari-X and the recently acquired EIT Systems Division," said Peter P. Tong, president and chief executive officer. "Vari-X revenues were $8,401,000 or 9 percent ahead of the same period last year, reflecting contributions of the two regional cine film distributors acquired during the fourth quarter of 1992. EIT Systems Division, which was acquired on May 1, 1993, generated revenues of $2,719,000 in the two months ended June 30, 1993. Systems Division revenues for the period included approximately $500,000 in sales representing product shipments that had been delayed until after the closing of the acquisition.
 "Earnings for the quarter and six months were negatively affected by increases in selling costs, which represent the additional costs to support sales of the two cine film distributors acquired in the fourth quarter of 1992 and the costs to support the Systems Division acquired in May 1993," added Tong.
 "Earnings were also negatively affected by the performance of our optical filters subsidiary, ODI, which continues to operate below historical levels. ODI revenues for the second quarter were $1,401,000, down from $3,667,000 from the same quarter last year. Revenues have been affected by the loss of a major customer and increased competition in the world market for optical filters for computer monitors," continued Tong. "Our plans to create new and innovative products, improve the brand name recognition of our products, and to strengthen our domestic and international distribution activities have been implemented, and the first line of new products was released during the second quarter."
