FAIRCHILD REPORTS FISCAL 1992 FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

 FAIRCHILD REPORTS FISCAL 1992 FIRST QUARTER RESULTS
 CHANTILLY, Va., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The Fairchild Corporation


(NYSE: FA), a leading aerospace, industrial products and communications services company, today reported a net loss of $8,140,000, or $0.48 per share, for the first quarter ended September 30, 1991.
 For the comparable quarter of the prior fiscal year, Fairchild reported net income of $20,154,000, or $1.18 per share, which reflected, among other things, a non-recurring pretax gain of $54,550,000 primarily from the sale of 52.8 percent of the Company's interest in Banner Aerospace.
 The loss in the quarter was attributed principally to reduced sales and margins at some of its businesses. This was partially offset by Fairchild's ability to lower corporate expense and net interest expense.
 Sales amounted to $120,962,000 for the three months ended September 30, 1991, compared with $123,162,000 for the same quarter of the prior year. Operating income was $4,349,000 for the recent quarter, compared with $8,787,000 for the three months ended September 30, 1990. Other major items reflected in the results were equity earnings of $2,993,000 and $6,008,000 for the quarters ended September 30, 1991 and 1990, respectively. Results for the year-ago quarter also included a loss of $10,140,000 on disposal of discontinued operations and an extraordinary gain of $1,025,000 on the repurchase of debt.
 "During the first quarter, historically the weakest one of the year, a continuation of soft demand and lower margins adversely impacted our Aerospace Fastener and Industrial Products segments. In response, we have initiated various cost-reduction measures such as personnel reductions and further consolidation of operations within the Aerospace Fastener segment, and we are continuing to implement improved manufacturing techniques in both segments," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey J. Steiner.
 "At the same time, we did enjoy strong sales and profit increases at our Communications Services segment. We were also successful in reducing net interest expense by $1.1 million for the recent quarter, while cutting corporate overhead by another $2.2 million," Steiner added.
 The Fairchild Corporation is a leading supplier of aerospace and industrial products and communications services.
