 MORGAN STANLEY GROUP REPORTS RESULTS
 NEW YORK, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgan Stanley Group Inc.


(NYSE: MS) today announced net income of $183.7 million for the four months ended April 30, 1992. Net revenues (gross revenues less interest expense) for the period were $1,112.2 million. Earnings per common share were $2.14 on a primary basis, and $2.05 on a fully diluted basis.
 On Feb. 28, 1992, Morgan Stanley announced that its board of directors had approved a change in its fiscal year-end to Jan. 31 from Dec. 31, effective for the 1992 first quarter. Accordingly, the firm's first fiscal quarter for 1992 is the three-month period ending April 30, 1992.
 Net income for the fiscal quarter ending April 30, 1992, was $139.1 million compared with $120.1 million for the quarter ending March 31, 1991. Net revenues for the first quarter of 1992 were $808.4 million compared with $747.8 million for the first quarter of 1991. Primary earnings per common share were $1.62 and $1.54 for the first quarters of 1992 and 1991, respectively. Earnings per common share on a fully diluted basis were $1.55 for the first quarter of 1992 vs. $1.46 for the first quarter of 1991.
 Results for January 1992 were net revenues of $303.8 million, net income of $44.6 million, and primary and fully diluted earnings per common share of $0.52 and $0.50, respectively. Earnings for January reflect a one-time charge of $9.1 million ($0.12 per primary share and $0.11 per fully diluted share), which is the cumulative effect of the company's decision to adopt Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement No. 106 regarding post-retirement benefits.
 The company also announced the declaration by its board of directors of a quarterly dividend of 24 cents per common share. The dividend is payable June 24, 1992, to holders of record on June 1, 1992.
 Richard B. Fisher, chairman, and Robert F. Greenhill, president said in a joint statement:
 "We are pleased with Morgan Stanley's operating performance
 in the first quarter and first four months of 1992. The
 balance and mix of the company's business portfolio were
 again the key to maintaining earnings momentum. Investment
 banking revenues were supported during the period by an
 active equity underwriting calendar and increased financial
 advisory revenues. Global sales and trading activity
 remained strong, although somewhat below the record levels
 achieved in the first quarter of 1991. In merchant banking,
 the company realized investment revenues during the period
 principally from the initial public offering of Coltec
 Industries Inc. Important contributions were also made by
 Morgan Stanley's asset management and custody and clearing
 business units."
 Total capital (stockholders' equity and long-term debt) at April 30, 1992, was $6.13 billion, including $3.18 billion of common and preferred stockholders' equity. Book value per common share was $32.78, based on quarter-end shares and share equivalents of 78,000,855.
 Morgan Stanley Group Inc. is a global financial services firm with offices in New York, London, Tokyo and other principal financial centers.
