PDA ENGINEERING OFFERS SYNOPSIS OF REMARKS AT CRUTTENDEN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA GROWTH STOCK CONFERENCE

 NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is a summary of a presentation made by Costa Mesa, Calif.-based PDA Engineering (NASDAQ: PDAS) today at Cruttenden Southern California Growth Stock Conference.
 PDA Engineering provides innovative computer-aided mechanical engineering (MCAE) software, engineering services, advanced materials technology, and comprehensive customer training to engineers in the aerospace, transportation, energy, industrial, and commercial markets.
 As the world leader in the development and marketing of software systems for analyzing computer-simulated designs, PDA Engineering helps manufacturers to bring their products to market faster, at lower cost, and with better quality and performance. As a consequence of its recognized role in changing and improving the design-to-manufacturing process, PDA Engineering has recorded consistent revenue and income gains since 1987.
 Over the past six years, revenues have grown at an annual compound rate of 12 percent, and net income approximately 40 percent. For the first six months of fiscal 1993, ended Dec. 31, 1992, net income rose by 46 percent to $1.72 million from $1.18 million in the same period a year earlier.
 The company's core product since 1980 has been PATRAN, the product-line name for PDA's engineering analysis software system. During the 1980s, PATRAN developed an industry-wide reputation as a "best-of-class" software system for allowing engineers to analyze new product designs.
 Two recent PDA innovations have firmly established the company's position of industry leadership. In September 1990, PDA introduced the first true advanced materials technology information system. M/VISION allowed engineers for the very first time to use materials as a design variable, and to select the most suitable and cost- effective ones from a virtually unlimited array of metal alloys, plastics, and composites, to obtain the optimum design combination of strength, light weight, and functional reliability.
 In fiscal 1992, after five years of development and an investment of $40 million, PDA introduced its newest release, PATRAN 3, establishing the company as the world's leading supplier of integration technology for computer-aided engineering. Uncommonly easy to learn, even easier to use, PATRAN 3 ties together the functions of computerized product design, analysis, and testing in a manner not previously possible. Equally as important, PATRAN 3 is compatible with the manufacturer's own in-house developed software, without making these investments obsolete.
 To date, the company's new products -- which are all at the beginning of their product life cycles -- have been well received by the marketplace. In October of 1992, NASA selected PATRAN and PDA's M/VISION materials software system for a number of space-related programs, increasing a multiyear contract.
 In January 1993, General Electric selected PDA Engineering as a strategic supplier in its product development process and purchased $2.6 million of PATRAN analysis software and services, with options to add to this order in the future. PATRAN 3 will be used by most of General Electric's divisions as part of a G.E. program to obtain integration of its software and new engineering analysis functionality.
