 J.B. HUNT TRANSPORT SERVICES, INC. REPORTS REVENUES AND EARNINGS
 FOR SECOND QUARTER 1992
 LOWELL, Ark., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: JBHT) announced revenues and earnings for the second quarter ended June 30, 1992.
 Consolidated revenues for the second quarter totaled $223.8 million, up 27 percent over the $175.8 million for the second quarter of 1991. Revenues for the second quarter reflect significant increases in the number of intermodal movements. Growth of new divisions, such as hazardous commodities and intrastate operations, also contributed to increased revenue.
 Net earnings for the quarter increased 31 percent to $9.8 million, or 28 cents per share, compared with $7.5 million, or 22 cents in 1991. Higher base freight rates and operating income from new division operations enhanced overall earnings. Increased fuel costs negatively impacted earnings by approximately 3 cents per share.
 Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 1992, increased 25 percent to $425.1 million from $339.3 million in the first six months of 1991. Earnings before the cumulative effect of the change in accounting method adopted in 1991, increased to $16.1 million, or 46 cents per share, compared with $11.7 million, or 34 cents per share. A one-time, non-operating charge for the cumulative effect of the change in revenue recognition method reduced 1991 net earnings by $1.6 million, or 5 cents per share. (Comparative Table Follows)
