 KEPTEL ANNOUNCES QUARTER END EARNINGS
 TINTON FALLS, N.J., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Keptel Inc.


(NASDAQ: KPTL) announced today earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 1992 of $572,000 or $.12 per share on revenues of $11,616,000; the strongest earnings quarter for the company in eight quarters.
 Richard K. Laird, president and CEO said, "The full effects of the company's previously announced reorganization are now beginning to very positively boost earnings. Although revenues during the quarter were relatively flat compared with the first quarter, lower overall expenses coupled with increased production at the company's new factories in El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico served to further strengthen earnings."
 "Looking ahead," Laird said, "The general strengthening of the economy together with new products coming this summer and fall, all now sharply focused toward the Bell telephone marketplace positions the company for continued growth as the future unfolds.
