MTS SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES ACQUISITION AND REPORTS ESTIMATED SECOND QUARTER ORDERS AND REVENUES

 EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- MTS Systems Corporation, Eden Prairie, announced today that it had completed the acquisition of Adamel-Lhomargy, a French manufacturer of material testing systems.
 Donald M. Sullivan, MTS president and CEO, stated that the acquisition represents MTS's entry into the European test system market for plastics and other lower force applications. "Adamel-Lhomargy will operate as a companion to our MTS-SINTECH Division which has been growing rapidly in this market in North America and, more recently, in Asia-Pacific. The European market is very competitive, and after some exploratory efforts over the last year, we decided an acquisition was the best route of entry. Adamel-Lhomargy is a very good fit with considerable synergy. We are already engaged in combining our product technologies. Also, MTS's sales and service strength across Europe will allow Adamel-Lhomargy to gain customers who were previously inaccessible to them."
 Sullivan said Adamel-Lhomargy had revenues of under $10 million in its most recent fiscal year. The acquisition was made for an undisclosed amount of cash and notes.
 MTS also announced estimated consolidated orders of $51 million and revenues of $46 million for the second quarter ended March 31, 1994. These numbers include the results for Adamel-Lhomargy for the entire quarter.
 Final orders, revenues, and earnings for the quarter will be reported in early May.
 MTS manufactures computer based testing and simulation systems for determining the mechanical behavior of materials, products, and structures, and measurement and control instrumentation products for the automation of manufacturing processes.
