REDDI BRAKE ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER AND SIX MONTHS RESULTS; Six Month Revenue Increases 155%.

VENTURA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--February 10, 1995--REDDI BRAKE SUPPLY CORPORATION (NASDAQ NM SYMBOL: REDI) today announced results for the second quarter and six month period ended December 31, 1994.

For the second quarter of fiscal 1995 net sales increased 157% to $10,747,159 from $4,179,426 recorded in the second quarter of last year. Net income was $342,152, or $0.02 per share based on 16,359,212 weighted average shares outstanding, compared to a loss of $3,156,182, or $0.23 per share based on 13,959,756 weighted average shares outstanding for the same quarter last year. Last year's second quarter results included a loss of $1,392,395, or $0.10 per share, from the discontinued Wesco Auto Parts Division.

Net sales for the six month period ended December 31, 1994 increased 155% to $19,946,018, compared to $7,833,432 reported for the same period last year. Net income increased to $843,575, or $0.05 per share based on 16,311,224 weighted average shares outstanding, compared to a loss of $3,139,356, or $0.23 per share based on 13,610,452 weighted average shares outstanding reported for the first six months of fiscal 1994. Last year's results for the period include a loss of $1,586,096, or $0.12 per share, from the discontinued Wesco Auto Parts Division.

Commenting on the results, Bruce Douglass, Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are very pleased with our results for the quarter and six month period. During the second quarter, we opened 16 additional Reddi Brake outlets for a total of 35 outlets added in the first half of fiscal 1995. Despite the substantial increase in store count, operating results were impacted by the Christmas season which historically has been a slow selling period in our business."

"Looking forward, we are very optimistic. As previously reported, the recent funds generated from the Allen & Company Incorporated financing enables us to add approximately seven new outlets a month with a planned total of at least 115 outlets by fiscal year end 1995. Our strategy is simple: to remain the leading 'just-in-time', 'two-step' distributor of quality undercar parts to the professional mechanic. So far, we are encouraged by the positive results this strategy has yielded," concluded Douglass.

Reddi Brake Supply Corporation operates 87 Reddi Brake outlets in 27 states in the West, Southwest, Southeast and Midwest. Reddi Brake outlets provide two-step distribution of brake systems, chassis components and other undercar parts mainly to the professional mechanic. -0-
