KEY ENERGY GROUP ANNOUNCES RESULTS

 NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Key Energy Group, Inc. (AMEX: KEG) has announced that net income for the six months ended Dec. 31, 1992, was $5.2 million ($1.01 per share).
 Net income included extraordinary gains of $2.9 million and $1.9 million of income resulting from the company's successful reorganization, completed on Dec. 4, 1992.
 As reported on Dec. 7, 1992, Key Energy Group completed its Chapter 11 Pre-Packaged Plan of Reorganization. As a result, approximately $8.5 million of debt and 1.2 million shares of Preferred Stock with a redemption value of approximately $11.2 million was converted into common stock equity. In addition, the company successfully completed a common stock rights offering in which 970,000 shares of common stock were issued at $1.90 per share for approximately $1.8 million in cash. The company's shareholders' equity increased from a negative $5 million at June 30, 1992, to a positive $6.2 million as of Dec. 4, 1992. The company has 5.1 million common shares outstanding.
 Assuming the Pre-Packaged Bankruptcy Plan had occurred on July 1, 1992, the company would have reported income from continuing operations of $870,000 ($.17 per share) for the six months ended Dec. 31, 1992.
 Revenues were $6.1 million and $6.4 million for the quarters ended Sept. 30 and Dec. 31, 1992, respectively. Six-month revenues increased 19 percent from the comparable period ended Dec. 31, 1991.
 As a result of the consummation of the Pre-Packaged Plan, the company will issue a separate audited balance sheet as of Dec. 4, 1992, on a "fresh-start" reporting basis as required by GAAP. The company's much-improved, post-restructured balance sheet, is summarized as follows:
 Audited Audited

 Cash and current assets $3.2 $5.8
 Long-term assets 9.0 10.3
 Total assets 12.2 16.1
 Current liabilities 5.3 5.3
 Long-term debt 11.9 4.6
 Stockholders' equity (5.0) 6.2

 For the fiscal year ended June 30, 1992 (prior to the filing and completion of the Pre-Packaged Plan of Reorganization), the company reported income from continuing operations of $.4 million and net loss applicable to common stock of $.6 million. Both income from continuing operations and net loss included substantial changes related to the company's Pre-Packaged Plan of Reorganization required asset revaluation and write-off of discontinued operations assets.
 Francis D. John, president and chief executive officer, stated, "The company's equipment utilization has been very strong for the first half of the fiscal year, substantially ahead of the industry average for West Texas. The company has been very successful during the past six months with the completion of the Reorganization Plan while at the same time improving revenues and operating results."
