 NEW YORK, Nov. 19 ~PRNewswire~ -- Morgan Stanley Group Inc. (NYSE: MS) today announced net income of $110.6 million or $1.26 per common share on a primary basis for the quarter ended Oct. 31, 1992 compared to $121.8 million or $1.52 per share on a primary basis for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 1991. Fully diluted earnings per share were $1.21 and $1.45 in the third quarter of 1992 and 1991, respectively. Net revenues (gross revenues less interest expense) for the period were $751.5 million compared to $727.1 million for the third quarter of 1991.
 Consolidated net income for the nine months ended Oct. 31, 1992 was $368.6 million or $4.25 per share on a primary basis and $4.08 per share on a fully diluted basis. Net revenues for the period were $2,324.0 million. Results for the nine months ending Sept. 30, 1991 were net income of $342.7 million, earnings per share (on a primary basis) of $4.31, earnings per share (on a fully diluted basis) of $4.10, and net revenues of $2,144.0 million.
 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 Dec. 17, 1992 to holders of record on Nov. 30, 1992.
 Richard B. Fisher, chairman, and Robert F. Greenhill, president, said in a joint statement:
 "While Morgan Stanley Group's net income this quarter was below that of a year ago, net income for the first nine months of this fiscal year was slightly ahead of that for the first nine months of 1991. Conditions were difficult in the financial markets for most of the third quarter, and included a major contraction in the volume of new equity offerings. Nevertheless, we think the third quarter's results reflect the value of our balanced mix of worldwide businesses in a volatile climate. Secondary revenues (combined trading revenues, commissions and net interest) declined 4 percent from their level in the third quarter of 1991.
 Strong results in foreign exchange, swaps and government bond trading were somewhat more than offset by reduced equity and commodities trading results. Investment banking revenues also declined moderately in the quarter. Equity securities offerings and merger activity decreased while debt issuance volumes increased. 1992's third quarter results include merchant banking investment revenues of $42.6 million, principally from the sale of the firm's interest in MS~Essex Holdings Inc. and an increase in the carrying value of the firm's investment in Kohl's Corporation. Morgan Stanley's asset management and custody and clearing businesses also had strong performances this quarter."
 Total capital (stockholders' equity and long-term debt) at Oct. 31, 1992, was $6.36 billion, including $3.20 billion of common and preferred stockholders' equity. Book value per common share was $34.84 based on quarter-end shares and share equivalents of 77,670,670.
 Morgan Stanley Group Inc. is a global financial services firm with offices in New York, London, Tokyo and other principal financial centers.
