JOHNSON WORLDWIDE ASSOCIATES REPORTS SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

 JOHNSON WORLDWIDE ASSOCIATES REPORTS SECOND QUARTER RESULTS
 RACINE, Wis., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Worldwide Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: JWAIA) today reported results for the second quarter ended March 27, 1992. Sales increased 7 percent to $105.8 million over second quarter sales of $98.7 million a year ago. Net income increased 16 percent to $7.8 million from $6.8 million. Earnings per share were $.98 as compared to $.85 per share in the prior year's quarter.
 For the six months ended March 27, 1992, sales increased 8 percent to $166.3 million from $153.3 million in the year ago period. Net income increased 17 percent to $7.0 million from $5.9 million. Earnings per share were $.87 as compared to $.75 per share in the comparable year-earlier period.
 Terence S. Malone, president and chief executive officer, said, "Our second quarter results were encouraging, as we are seeing a pickup in sales of recreation products in the U.S. Fishing sales, led by the introduction of new products in the U.S. and France, improved from the low sales levels of the prior year's quarter.
 "Camping sales continued to show good strength, particularly sales of Eureka! camping tents and Old Town canoes. Marking Systems' sales were up slightly in the quarter, but results were adversely affected by weak economic conditions at its Unigraphics operation in Sweden."
 Malone concluded, "Second quarter results in our diving and marine businesses were slightly improved over the prior year. However, third quarter results may be affected by weakening economic conditions in Europe and Japan. April and May are critical months for these seasonal businesses. Their collective performance will play an important role in contributing to JWA's overall results for the year, which, nonetheless, should show good improvement over last year's results."
 Johnson Worldwide Associates, Inc. is engaged in the manufacture and marketing of recreational products as well as marking system products for industrial and commercial applications.
