 MAXCO, INC. REPORTS SECOND-QUARTER RESULTS
 LANSING, Mich., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxco, Inc.


(NASDAQ-NMS: MAXC) today announced results for the second quarter and six months ended Sept. 30, 1992.
 Sales rose 14 percent to $30,056,000 from $26,320,000 for the quarter. Income before taxes and equity in operations of affiliates was $968,000 compared to $1,113,000 in the year-earlier quarter. Equity in earnings of affiliated companies (net of deferred tax), primarily from Maxco's 2.1 million shares of Medar, Inc. was $166,000 in the quarter, up from $125,000.
 Net income was $804,000, or 17 cents a share, compared to $993,000, or 21 cents a share for the same quarter last year. The year-earlier quarter included approximately $400,000 in gains from the sale of 80,000 shares of stock of Medar, Inc.
 There were approximately 4.4 million weighted average shares outstanding in this year's quarter compared to 4.5 million the year before.
 For the six months, sales rose to $58,832,000 from $48,894,000. Income before taxes and equity in operations of affiliates was $1,853,000 compared to $1,335,000 in the year earlier's first half. Equity in earnings of affiliated companies (net of deferred tax) was $289,000, up from $239,000.
 Net income was $1,512,000, or 32 cents a share, up from $1,274,000, or 26 cents a share. There were approximately 4.4 million weighted average shares outstanding in this year's six-month period vs. 4.5 million in the comparable period.
 "Of the quarter's $3.7 million sales increase, about $3 million of this came from Finishmaster, which has the most consistent growth record of any of Maxco's businesses," said Max A. Coon, chairman and president. "Sales growth at Finishmaster came from expanding market areas in Indiana and Wisconsin, although profitability was impacted by pressure on margins as the company competes for market share.
 "The construction supply group also showed a sales gain of about $1 million in the quarter. Wright Plastics, our supplier of automotive components, reported lower sales and profitability in the quarter.
 "We continue to invest in people and systems, which is a reason earnings grew at a slightly slower rate than sales in the quarter," Coon said.
 "Looking at the balance of the year, typically a slower period, we are optimistic about the year taken as a whole," Coon concluded.
 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.
