 WEEHAWKEN, N.J., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Hanover Direct, Inc. (AMEX: HNV) today announced net income for the third quarter of 1993 of $2.5 million or $.02 per share. This compares to a loss for the same period in 1992 of $1.3 million prior to an extraordinary gain of $6.5 million, or a loss of $0.7 per share. Per share amounts are expressed after the deduction of preferred dividends of $1.0 million in the third quarter of 1993 and $0.8 million for the corresponding quarter in 1992. Revenues for the third quarter of 1993 were $147.9 million compared to $144.8 million in the 1992 period. Third quarter revenues reflect a 2 percent increase in sales from continuing catalogs and include $7.6 million generated by new catalog businesses acquired by the Company during the quarter.
 "The Company continued to improve its profitability and gross margins by successful execution of its growth strategy and continued investment in facilities and systems. We look forward to continued growth as we begin to integrate the strategic acquisitions made during the quarter," said Jack Rosenfeld, President and CEO.
 For the thirty-nine weeks ended September 25, 1993, the Company reported new income of $9.3 million, or $0.9 per share compared to a loss before extraordinary items and the cumulative effect of an accounting charge for income taxes of $4.0 million, or $.21 per share in the 1992 period. Net income for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 26, 1992 was $13.7 million and earnings per share were $0.40 after such items.
 The Company continued its plan to develop or acquire catalogs with strong brand names and leading market positions in clearly defined niches by completing recently three acquisitions, Gump's, the upscale catalog marketer of exclusive gifts and the legendary San Francisco retailer; The Company Store, the leading direct marketer of down comforters and related products; and Tweed, the well known European inspired women's fashion catalog.
 Hanover Direct recently reincorporated in Delaware, changed its name form the Horn & Hardart Company and changed its stock symbol to HNV.
