 MAGNA INTERNATIONAL REPORTS RESULTS
 MARKHAM, Ont., Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Magna International Inc.


(TSE: MG.A, MG.B; NASDAQ: MAGAF) today announced results for the first quarter of fiscal 1992. Sales for the quarter were $617 million, representing a 24 percent increase over the comparable period of the previous year. North American vehicle production volumes for the first quarter were 3.0 million units as compared to 3.1 million units for the same period last year. All results are reported in Canadian dollars.
 Three months ended Oct. 31 1991 1990
 Sales $617.2 $498.4
 Income before income taxes
 and minority interest $43.3 $10.5
 Net income $25.5 $2.8
 Earnings per share:
 Basic $0.92 $0.10
 Fully diluted $0.59 $0.10
 The company reported operating income of $43.3 million before income tax for the first quarter of fiscal 1992, compared to $10.5 million for the same period last year. Continued improvements in operating efficiencies and capacity utilization have resulted in improved profitability even though North American vehicle production is approximately the same as the comparable period last year.
 The effective income tax rate for the quarter was 32.3 percent compared to 75 percent in the comparable quarter last year. This reduction in tax rate results from the timing of the recognition of the effect of tax losses for accounting purposes. For the remainder of the year, the company expects to have a tax rate lower than the statutory rate of 39 percent which is applicable to the company.
 Fully diluted earnings per share for the quarter amounted to $0.59 as compared to $0.10 for the same period of the prior year. On a pro forma basis, assuming that the approximate six million Class A shares issued on Nov. 29, 1991, were outstanding during the first quarter, fully diluted earnings per share would have been $0.55.
 Chairman Frank Stronach said, "Debt reduction remains a high priority for Magna. The share offering which we recently completed has now placed us in a secure financial position. It is our intention to continue to reduce our indebtedness with cash flow from operations.
 "I am pleased with the financial success of the first quarter. Looking forward, we anticipate lower automotive production levels in our second quarter as a result of seasonal reductions and the current recessionary environment. While we anticipate our profitability to be less than that recorded in the first quarter, we expect to be substantially more profitable than the second quarter of last year.
 "Overall for fiscal 1992, we anticipate an increase in North American vehicle production of between 5 and 10 percent. Even with this modest recovery, we are optimistic that our continuing efficiency efforts will result in improved returns for our shareholders."
