MOCON EXPECTS REDUCED SALES DURING THIRD QUARTER

 MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- MOCON (Modern Controls, Inc.) (NASDAQ-NMS: MOCO) today announced that management is estimating that sales and earnings for the quarter ending Sept. 30, 1993 will be less than the same period last year and for the most recent quarter ended June 30, 1993.
 As always, Quarterly Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for the period ending on Sept. 30 will be released in the second half of October.
 "We continue our uncertainty about revenue growth both domestically and abroad," said Chairman William N. Mayer. "Export sales to Japan and Europe are well behind previous years. Domestically sales continue to be less than expected as prospects continue to delay purchases pending an upswing in their own businesses. Due to economic uncertainty in the company's major markets during 1993 management continues to explore alternative growth options. We remain profitable and financially sound with a strong balance sheet, but confidence of economic recovery in our markets is weak in the near term."
