INTERFACE REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS, SEES CONTINUED IMPROVEMENT

 INTERFACE REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS, SEES CONTINUED IMPROVEMENT
 LAGRANGE, Ga., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Interface, Inc. (NASDAQ: IFSIA) today reported net income for the quarter ended Dec. 29, 1991, of $3.5 million (20 cents per share), more than double the results of the third quarter of 1991, while down from $5.7 million (30 cents per share) for the same quarter of 1990. Net sales were $148 million, down 11 percent from the fourth quarter of 1990.
 Ray C. Anderson, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "The fourth quarter 1991 decline in sales was primarily attributable to continued economic softness worldwide and, secondarily, to adverse currency movements. However, the improvement of fourth quarter results, compared with those of the third quarter, is encouraging; and the positive trend currently visible in new orders suggests that the long awaited economic turnaround has begun. We realize that the turnaround most likely will be gradual therefore, as we enter 1992, we are continuing to emphasize cost containment to maximize the impact of the anticipated improvement in sales. We believe that the first quarter of 1992 results will continue the earnings improvement which began in the fourth quarter of 1991."
 Net sales for 1991 were $582 million, down from $623 million last year. Net income was $8.9 million (52 cents per share), compared with $23.6 million ($1.24 per share) for 1990.
