 ROYAL APPLIANCE ANNOUNCES 2-FOR-1 STOCK SPLIT
 CLEVELAND, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of Royal


Appliance Mfg. Co. (NASDAQ: RVAC) has declared a 2-for-1 split of its shares by way of a stock dividend to holders of record on May 15, 1992, payable on July 17, 1992.
 Royal Appliance shares were issued to the public through an initial offering on Aug. 6, 1991, at a price of $15.50 per share. The market value of each share has nearly tripled since then.
 "The rise in Royal's stock price has reflected the growth of our business. Sales have increased 91 percent in the first quarter of 1992, primarily due to increased sales of the Dirt Devil(R) Upright Deluxe (TM) and Dirt Devil(R) Hand Vac(TM)," said John Balch, chairman and chief executive officer.
 Royal Appliance Mfg. Co. assembles the popular line of Dirt Devil(R) vacuum cleaners. The company grew from $6 million in sales in 1982 to more than $273 million in 1991.
