HARMONY BROOK REVENUES UP 57 PERCENT

 MINNEAPOLIS, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Harmony Brook, Inc. (NASDAQ: HRBK) announced today that revenues for its first quarter ended March 31, 1993 were up 57 percent from the previous year's comparable period. First quarter revenues totalled $791,405 compared to $502,935 in the first quarter of 1992, an increase of $288,470.
 Michael R. Knox, the company's president, attributed the increase in revenues to continuing growth in Harmony Brook(R) Premium Drinking Water systems installed in customer locations around the country. As of March 31, 1993, the company's equipment was installed in 743 customer locations, up from 417 as of March 31, 1992.
 Knox also said that recent publicity regarding problems with municipal water supplies in Milwaukee as well as current reports about problems with lead in the water supplies of 819 cities around the country have helped increase awareness of the benefits of the company's high quality, fresh water. He noted that the company's equipment is capable of removing up to 98 percent of any lead in tap water and that the sophisticated filtration systems used by Harmony Brook remove micro- organism as well as many other contaminants from the water.
 The net loss for the first quarter of 1993 was $171,928, or $.06 per share, versus the comparable loss of $162,055, or $.09 per share, for the first quarter of 1992. An accounting change in the method of depreciation resulted in a one time gain of $147,240, or $.08 per share, during the first quarter of 1992 and reduced the actual net loss for that period to $14,815, or $.01 per share.
 Harmony Brook develops, manufactures, markets and operates equipment which processes ordinary tap water into high quality drinking water at the point of use. The company's principal produce line consists of the Harmony Brook Premium Drinking Water system, which is a self-serve water purification and dispensing system for use in supermarkets and other retail stores. Harmony Brook stock is traded on the NASDAQ Small Caps Market under the symbol "HBRK."
