 JENNY CRAIG ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER GAINS
 DEL MAR, Calif., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Jenny Craig Inc.


(NYSE: JC) announced today that total revenues for the first quarter ended Sept. 30, 1991 increased 19 percent to $120,447,000 from the operation of 643 centres compared to revenues of $101,113,000 from 543 centres for the same quarter last year. Operating income increased 49percent to $19,949,000 from $13,358,000 for the same quarter in the prior year. Net income for the quarter increased 78 percent to $10,520,000, or $.44 per share, compared to net income of $5,909,000, or $.25 per share for the same quarter in the prior year.
 Sid Craig, chairman and chief executive officer, said that the income improvement resulted from cost control programs inaugurated last year, lower net interest expense and from the increase in revenues attributable to the 18 percent increase in the total number of centres in operation.
 "Since the end of fiscal 1991, we have opened 16 company- owned and seven franchise centres, primarily in the United States, including centres in two new markets -- Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Because of the encouraging first quarter results and the general uptrend in revenues over the last three quarters, we plan to increase the rate of expansion over the balance of fiscal 1992," Craig stated.
 Earnings per share for the quarter were based on the 24,000,000 shares then outstanding. As a result of the initial public offering completed in November 1991, there are 27,500,000 shares currently outstanding. Jenny Craig Inc. is one of the four largest weight loss service companies in the United States.
