ESKIMO PIE CORPORATION DECLARES SECOND QUARTER DIVIDEND

 RICHMOND, Va., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of Eskimo Pie Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: EPIE) today declared a quarterly dividend of $0.05 per share of common stock, payable on July 1, 1993, to shareholders of record on June 15, 1993.
 In announcing this dividend, David V. Clark, president and CEO, stated: "Our initial dividend as a public company was declared and paid in the first quarter of this year. We are pleased to be in a position to declare a dividend this quarter, too. While it is the board's intent at this time to have a regular quarterly dividend going forward, the declaration and payment of future dividends and the size of any dividend will be at the discretion of the board and will depend on a number of factors, including general business conditions we encounter and the company's future financial condition, earnings and capital requirements."
 Headquartered in Richmond, the company markets branded frozen novelties, including its ESKIMO PIE line of products and under licensing agreements, Welch's fruit juice bars and Tootsie Pops frozen novelties, through a national network of licensed manufacturers. Later this spring, the company will begin to market, through a licensing agreement, Ghirardelli Ice Cream Bars on the West Coast.
