NUCLEAR SUPPORT SERVICES REPORTS RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

 NUCLEAR SUPPORT SERVICES REPORTS RECENT DEVELOPMENTS
 CAMPBELLTOWN, Pa., March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Nuclear Support Services,


Inc. (NASDAQ: NSSI), in a letter to shareholders, reported today on recent developments which will impact second quarter earnings and long range results.
 Effective April 1, 1992, NUMANCO, Inc., a subsidiary company, will be consolidated with the original NSSI manpower unit, NSS Operations, in order to increase operating efficiencies.
 The current economic slowdown appears to have directly impacted the primary non-nuclear industry markets causing a downturn in the issuance and required completion of contracts serviced by Henze Services, Inc. In the nuclear market, some utilities have shifted their power plant outage schedules into late spring and summer, moving the peak demand periods for the company's manpower services into the third and fourth fiscal quarters. NSSI said it is not expecting a loss for the second quarter, however, earnings will be less than anticipated due to changes in the markets served by the company. The company said it remains confident that the remainder of the year will show improvement.
 Nuclear Support Services, Inc. is a leader in providing support and maintenance to the nuclear power, fossil fuel and processing industries.
 The full text of the letter to shareholders, dated March 6, 1991, from Joe C. Quick, chairman, president and CEO, follows.
 Dear Shareholder,
 While the results of the second quarter ending March 31, 1992, will not be available until next month, we wanted to bring you up to date on recent developments which we expect will impact second quarter earnings and long range results.
 NSSI is pleased to announce that effective April 1, 1992, its subsidiary company, NUMANCO, Inc. will be consolidated with its original manpower unit, NSS Operations. This union is expected to streamline the support operations of the two very similar companies, improve operating efficiencies, increase marketing and servicing effectiveness and reduce general and administrative expenses by approximately $1.5 million on an annualized basis.
 Henze Services, Inc.'s non-nuclear valve repair and maintenance markets appear to have been hard hit by the economic slowdown. NSSI's second quarter earnings will be negatively affected by this present downturn of Henze's operations. Management, however, expects improvement at Henze during the remainder of the fiscal year.
 Further impacting second quarter earnings is a shift in the demand for the temporary manpower services of NSS Operations and NUMANCO, Inc. caused by some nuclear utilities moving their scheduled refueling outages into late Spring and Summer of 1992. Although the Company is not expecting a loss, earnings for the second quarter will likely be less than anticipated. We remain confident that the remainder of the year will show improvement.
 Further discussion on the consolidation of operations will be presented in the next Quarterly Report to Shareholders for the period ending March 31, 1992, which will be mailed to shareholders in early May.
 Sincerely,
 /s/Joe C. Quick, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
