GENERAL AUTOMATION INC. REPORTS FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

 ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- General Automation Inc. (AMEX: GA), a leading supplier of database-oriented business systems, today reported a net loss of $290,000 on sales of $11.1 million for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 1992. The loss, including extraordinary items, totaled $0.03 per share. The net loss was effected by an extraordinary gain of $225,000 resulting from adjustments to estimates of the company's tax liabilities. In the preceding year, GA reported a net loss of $594,000 ($0.05 per share) on sales of $11 million for the comparable quarter.
 Commenting on these results, Leonard N. Mackenzie, president, said: "While the quarter was an improvement over the same quarter last year we are continuing to devote our attention to those areas where we feel changes are necessary. We have completed the combining of our European subsidiaries with those of Eurosystems in the Eurosystems GA Ltd. group. Losses sustained by our operation in Australia, whose economy is in a very poor condition, have been reduced and further steps are being taken to restore profitability in that country."
 Mackenzie went on to add: "Having made the decision to focus substantial time and resources toward developing markets for application software, particularly in North America, we are working aggressively toward obtaining market acceptance of our Maxial hotel management system, our new Zebra 2000 library system and the U.K.- developed SiGN 2000 airport information system. We have also identified within the GA Group of companies other application software packages which could increase the value of our products to the end-user without interfering with the traditional markets of our resellers."
 General Automation provides business computer systems, related system-level and vertical market application software and field service operations through a multinational network of computer marketing, support and service companies. General Automation Inc. operates in the United States, Europe, Southeast Asia and the South Pacific.
