(NASDAG: MEDQ) today announced second quarter net earnings for the period ended June 30, 1992, of $375,000, up approximately 40 percent from $268,000 in the same quarter a year ago.
 Quarterly earnings per share were 14 cents on 2,656,153 shares outstanding in 1992, vs. 12 cents on 2,290,105 shares outstanding in 1991.

 Six-month earnings were $718,000, a 37 percent increase from the $526,000 in the first half of 1991. Earnings per share for the six months were 29 cents in 1992 compared to 23 cents in 1991.

 Commenting on the quarter and six-month results, Richard J. Censits, MedQuist president and chief executive officer, noted that the company's health management services group had revenue increases of 43 percent for the first half of the year, primarily due to MedQuist's acquisition of HCI/InforMED in January. "The Florida acquisition provided MedQuist with an entry into the national hospital services market for financial consulting and computer software systems, and was the first step of our strategic plan to aggressively expand into health management services," he noted.
 The company recently also announced the acquisition of RME Collections, a Fort Worth, Texas, medical collections company with annual revenues of approximately $2.2 million.
 MedQuist Inc., headquartered in New Jersey, provides business and information services to hospitals nationally. The company also operates a regional home and ambulatory care business in the New Jersey/ Pennsylvania/Delaware market.
