HUNT MANUFACTURING CO. REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 1992 RESULTS

 HUNT MANUFACTURING CO. REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 1992 RESULTS
 PHILADELPHIA, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Hunt Manufacturing Co.


(NYSE: HUN) reported today a 17 percent rise in first quarter net income compared to last year's first quarter results.
 For the fiscal quarter ended March 1, 1992, net income increased to $2.2 million from $1.9 million last year and net sales decreased 1.4 percent to $53 million from $53.8 million. Earnings per share rose from $.12 to $.14.
 The first quarter profitability improvement was attributable primarily to higher gross profits due to lower material costs as well as improved operating efficiencies and lower interest costs due in part to the reduction of the company's long-term debt which occurred at year-end 1991.
 Unfavorable economic conditions and a difficult competitive environment continued to affect the demand for many of the company's products during the first quarter 1992. Office products sales were down 3.9 percent, which was partially offset by an increase in sales of art/craft products of 1.5 percent.
 Hunt Manufacturing Co. is a leading manufacturer and distributor of office and art/craft products for the business, education and consumer markets.
