 JONES PLUMBING SYSTEMS REPORTS RESULTS
 BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Kenneth R. Wells,


president and chief executive officer of Jones Plumbing Systems, Inc. (AMEX: JPS), announced today the company's third quarter operating results.
 Consolidated net sales of the company for the three months and nine months ended Sept. 30 were $10,337,101 and $27,907,320, respectively, a decline of 2.4 percent and 7.1 percent, as compared with the same periods in 1990.
 The company reported a net loss for the three months and nine months ended Sept. 30 of $1,304,655, or $.23 a share, and $2,432,648, or $.42 a share, respectively, as compared with net income of $121,363, or $.02 a share, and $896,785, or $.16 a share, for the year-earlier periods. The results included a loss from discontinued operations of $802,808, or $.14 a share, and $1,325,745, or $.23 a share, for each of the periods, respectively (including a provision of $264,000 for expected future losses), and a loss on the disposition of the company's screw machine division of $770,362, or $.13 a share. For each of the year-earlier periods, losses were $354,898, or $.06 a share, and $522,573, or $.09 a share, respectively. Income from continuing operations was $268,515, or $.04 a share, during the third quarter, as compared with $476,261, or $.08 a share, in the same period in 1990. For the nine months ended Sept. 30, the company reported a loss from continuing operations of $336,541, or $.06 a share, as compared with income of $1,419,358, or $.25 a share, for the same period last year.
 The company attributed the drop in net sales primarily to a depressed residential and commercial construction market. However, Wells said, "While the downturn in the economy continues to have an adverse effect on sales, the impact is being offset by the introduction of new products, improved distribution and new business segments of the company."
 The company made a decision in the third quarter to dispose of its screw machine division located in Hartsville, S.C., which operated under the name of Lane Manufacturing Company, and the transaction was completed on Nov. 12. Lane was acquired in 1989 for the purpose of expanding the company's manufacturing capabilities.
 Wells said, "The disposition of the Lane operation will have a positive impact on the future financial results of the company as it clears the way for the company to concentrate on its primary markets." He further stated, "While the economy continues to be depressed, the company is optimistic about its abilities to develop and grow through added products and penetration of new markets."
