 BLOOMFIELD, Conn., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaman Corp.


(NASDAQ: KAMNA), today reported 1992 third quarter net earnings and revenues were up slightly, compared to the same period a year ago. Net earnings for the third quarter of 1992 were $4.53 million, compared to $4.50 million a year ago. Earnings per share were 25 cents primary, 24 cents fully diluted in both periods.

 "Despite continued pressures in the economy and defense markets, the company performed well during the third quarter and first nine months of 1992," according to Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Charles H.
Kaman. "In distribution, our industrial business grew in revenues and earnings during the quarter, despite a lackluster manufacturing environment. We continue to focus on improving our market share and competitive position. Our music business was stable during the quarter.
 "In diversified technologies, receding defense markets continued to adversely impact results offsetting gains in our distribution business," continued Kaman. "Spending for aircraft and other military hardware is shrinking and we are adjusting accordingly. Our commercial aviation business was stable during the quarter, although we remain concerned over continuing pressures in the worldwide airline industry.
 "Our diversification in new technologies, financial strength and leadership in our markets is positioning Kaman well for the '90's and beyond," said Kaman.
 Kaman Corp. is a highly diversified company with nearly $800 million in sales, operating in two segments: Distribution and Diversified Technologies. The company serves three major markets: defense (40 percent), industrial (40 percent), and commercial (20 percent).
