ROYAL CHARGES HOOVER STATEMENT INCORRECTLY REPRESENTED COURT PROCEEDINGS

 CLEVELAND, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Appliance Mfg. Co. (NYSE: RAM), maker of the Dirt Devil(R) vacuum cleaner line, said today that a statement reportedly made by The Hoover Co. dated May 18, 1993, falsely represented the results of a hearing held in litigation between the two companies on Monday, May 17, 1993.
 Royal filed a complaint against Hoover on May 17 charging Hoover with false and deceptive advertising in connection with Hoover's advertising campaign promoting a so-called "Cleaning Efficiency Rating" for its upright vacuum cleaners. Royal's motion for a temporary restraining order to stop the advertising campaign is scheduled for a hearing in the U.S. District Court in Akron, Ohio on Wednesday, May 26, 1993.
 Hoover's reported statement falsely alleged that Royal's motion for an order to stop the advertising campaign was denied on May 17. In fact, on May 17, U.S. District Judge George W. White granted a temporary restraining order to stop Hoover from destroying survey results and other evidence relating to the case. Judge White deferred ruling on Royal's motion to stop Hoover's advertising campaign.
 Royal develops, assembles and markets a full line of vacuum cleaners for home and commercial use under the Dirt Devil(R) and Royal(R) brand names. The company's executive offices are located at 650 Alpha Drive, Cleveland, Ohio 44143.
