MAXCO, INC. EARNINGS TRIPLE IN FIRST QUARTER

 MAXCO, INC. EARNINGS TRIPLE IN FIRST QUARTER
 LANSING, Mich., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxco, Inc.


(NASDAQ-NMS: MAXC) today reported per-share earnings which were three times that of the prior year, along with a 27-percent sales gain in its first quarter ended June 30, 1992.
 Net sales and other income rose 27 percent to $28,776,000 from $22,574,000 in the year-earlier quarter. Income before taxes and equity in operations of affiliates was $885,000 vs. $223,000. Equity in earnings of affiliated companies (primarily Medar, Inc.) rose to $123,000 from $114,000 in the year-earlier quarter.
 Net income advanced to $708,000, or 15 cents a share, up from $282,000, or 5 cents a share, in the prior year's first quarter. There were approximately 4.3 million shares outstanding in this year's quarter compared to 4.6 million in the prior year's quarter.
 "Sales were up throughout Maxco's operations," said Max A. Coon, chairman. "About half of the $6.2 million in sales growth came from our auto paint distributor, Finishmaster. The rest of the revenue gain was spread across our other businesses.
 "Profitability was boosted by stronger margins in the construction supplies group and Akemi, Inc. Earnings at Finishmaster were impacted by price competition in some locations and a general slowdown in automobile repair. Higher earnings from our equity ownership in Medar (NASDAQ-NMS: MDXR) added to net income.
 "These strong results are especially gratifying as the overall economy remains sluggish," said Coon. "Maxco's financial performance is meeting our expectations. Earlier, we said we expect revenue in excess of $100 million, and it looks as if we're on our way."
 Maxco distribution businesses include Finishmaster, Inc., and the construction supplies group (Ersco and Wisconsin Wire & Steel) which markets commercial and highway construction materials throughout Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana. Wright Plastics, Pak Sak Industries and Akemi are Maxco's manufacturing businesses.
