K-TRON REPORTS THIRD QUARTER AND NINE MONTHS RESULTS FOR 1992

 K-TRON REPORTS THIRD QUARTER AND NINE MONTHS RESULTS FOR 1992
 PITMAN, N.J., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- K-Tron International, Inc. (NASDAQ: KTII), today reported that revenues for the third quarter ended Oct. 3, 1992, were $31.8 million, up 75 percent from the $18.2 million for the same period in 1991.
 The increased revenues were due to the inclusion of Colortronic GmbH, the German subsidiary acquired April 30, a $904,000 foreign exchange gain and a favorable foreign exchange rate compared to last year.
 Pre-tax earnings for the quarter were $1.2 million, up 69 percent compared to the third quarter of 1991, while net earnings were $757,000 or 25 cents per share, vs. $507,000 or 17 cents per share last year.
 Revenues for the first nine months of 1992 were $82.4 million, up 38 percent from the $59.6 million for the same period in 1991. Excluding Colortronic and the foreign exchange gain, revenues were $62.4 million, up 5 percent from the same period in 1991. The effective foreign exchange rate for the first nine months was approximately the same as in 1991.
 Pre-tax earnings for the first nine months of 1992 were $4 million, up $1 million or 33 percent over 1991, while net earnings reached $2.6 million, or 85 cents per share, vs. $2.2 million or 74 cents per share for the comparable period in 1991.
 K-Tron's president and chief executive officer Marcel O. Rohr said, "We remained profitable with good cash flow in the third quarter, despite plant closings for vacations which limited our shipment opportunities compared to other quarters. While shipments and orders in the United States remained generally steady in the third quarter, deliveries of security systems to R.J. Reynolds Tobacco USA were down substantially. We are confronting recessions in most of our markets, especially in the Far East and Europe. Higher effective tax rates reduced our net earnings for the quarter and the nine months compared to last year."
 Looking ahead, Rohr said, "While the volume of business has remained about the same as last year, excluding Colortronic, our profit margins continue to be affected adversely by uncertain economic conditions throughout the would. Business conditions in the fourth quarter continue to be challenging but we are making some gains with the integration of Colortronic while holding our own in our basic feeder business."
 K-Tron International, Inc., through its subsidiaries, is a major producer of gravimetric and volumetric feeders, blenders and related industrial control equipment with facilities and customers throughout the world.
