HAMBURGER HAMLET REPORTS SECOND QUARTER EARNINGS

 SHERMAN OAKS, Calif., Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Hamburger Hamlet Restaurants Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: HAMB) announced earnings today for the second fiscal quarter of 1993.
 Net income for the second quarter ended June 27, 1993, decreased to $198,000, or $.05 per share, compared to $710,000, or $.17 per share for the second quarter of 1992. Included in net income reported for the second quarter of 1993 was a $550,000 pre-tax charge for the write-down of a note receivable and reserve for possible future lease obligations, both related to the 1989 sale of a non-Hamburger Hamlet restaurant. This non-recurring charge reduced net earnings by $.08 per share. If adjusted to exclude this one-time charge, net income would have been $531,000, or $.13 per share.
 Income from operations decreased 21.1 percent to $1.03 million for the second quarter of 1993 compared to $1.30 million for the second quarter of 1992.
 Total revenues increased 12.6 percent to $17.13 million for the second quarter of 1993 from $15.21 million in the same period of 1992. Same store sales for the second quarter of 1993 decreased 3.1 percent, compared to the same period in 1992.
 Net income for the six months ended June 27, 1993, decreased to $663,000, or $.16 per share, compared to $1.36 million, or $.33 per share for the same period of 1992. If adjusted to exclude the non- recurring charge taken in the second quarter, net income would have been $996,000, or $.24 per share.
 Income from operations decreased 19.8 percent to $1.95 million for the first six months of 1993 compared to $2.44 million for the same period of 1992.
 Total revenues increased 14.0 percent to $34.50 million for the six months ended June 27, 1993 from $30.28 million in the same period of 1992. Same store sales for the first six months of 1993 decreased 3.9 percent, compared to the same period in 1992.
 "Our second quarter results were impacted by two issues: the one- time charge taken against a note receivable, and same store sales softness in our Southern California market," said Thomas A. McFall, chairman and chief executive officer.
 "We are pleased that total revenues increased due to sales from our five new stores that were opened since the second quarter of 1992," according to McFall. "However, revenues from new stores were partially offset by the decrease in same store sales," he added. "The decrease we experienced in income from operations for the quarter was directly attributable to the decline in same store sales, all of which occurred in the California stores," stated McFall.
 Founded in 1950, Hamburger Hamlet Restaurants Inc. owns and operates 32 restaurants: 21 in Southern California, seven in Washington, D.C. and four in Chicago. The company's common stock is traded through the NASDAQ National Market under the symbol "HAMB."
