JOY TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

 JOY TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES THIRD QUARTER RESULTS
 PITTSBURGH, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Joy Technologies Inc.


(NYSE: JOY) reported today that net income for the third fiscal quarter ended Nov. 22, 1991, was $2.1 million (after a $0.7 million extraordinary charge for the early extinguishment of company debt) as compared to $7.2 million in the same quarter last year. Net income in the third quarter of last year reflected a non-recurring tax benefit of $5 million. Net sales for the third fiscal quarter were $159.7 million compared to $169.5 million for the same period a year ago.
 For the nine-month period ended Nov. 22, 1991, net income was $3.2 million as compared to $13.8 million for the comparable nine month period last year. Net sales for the current nine month period were $445.4 million compared to $473.4 million for the same period a year ago.
 Marc F. Wray, president and chief executive officer, noted that, although this year's results are down compared to last year when demand for mining machinery was particularly strong, the current third quarter showed notable improvement over the earlier 1991 periods. Wray stated that continued increases in underground mining activity from recent reduced levels should serve to strengthen demand for mining machinery and services. He cautioned, however, that a prolonged downturn in the economy might dampen those prospects by reducing underground mining activity. Wray also cited the improved results of the company's environmental business and the significant future growth opportunities presented by the new Clean Air laws in the United States and Canada.
 Wray reported that the company had recently both successfully completed an initial public offering of 9.9 million shares of its common stock and entered into a new bank credit facility. With the proceeds of the offering and borrowings made in early December under the new bank facility, the company has called for redemption all of its preferred stock, retired its expensive public debt and contributed to liquidity. Wray noted that these actions will contribute approximately $27 million annually to common shareholders' equity through the elimination of large preferred stock dividends and the reduction of interest expense due to less debt and lower interest rates.
 Wray advised that the company will report for the fourth fiscal quarter ending Feb. 28, 1992, an extraordinary charge attributable to its recapitalization which is expected to approximate $22 million on an after-tax basis and will consist of premiums and other costs of retiring indebtedness, write-offs of remaining capitalized costs on the retired indebtedness and related transaction expenses.
 The company is a leader in the worldwide manufacturing and servicing of mining equipment for the underground extraction of coal, with facilities in the United States, South Africa, the United Kingdom and Australia. The company is also a major North American supplier of air pollution control and ash handling equipment used by electrical utilities and other industrial combustion operations.
