today reported that for the fourth quarter ended Nov. 30, 1991, net sales increased 21 percent to $45.4 million from $37.6 million. Net income increased 15 percent to $8.4 million from $7.2 million. Earnings per share increased 17 percent to $.56 per share from $.48 per share in the comparable 1990 period.
 For the year, net sales increased 7 percent to $147.9 million from $138.7 million. Net income decreased to $23.4 million or $1.56 per share from $24.2 million or $1.61 per share.
 Operating income for the fourth quarter increased to $12.7 million from $11.2 million. For the year, operating income decreased to $36.1 million from $38.5 million.
 Pre-tax income for the fourth quarter increased to $13.2 million from $11.8 million. For the year, pre-tax income decreased to $37.5 million from $39.4 million.
 Henry B. Pearsall, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "We were pleased with our excellent sales performance in the fourth quarter which represented a strong recovery from the strike-depressed levels of the third quarter."
 Pearsall continued, "For the year as a whole, increased investment spending in facilities and equipment to upgrade manufacturing processes, unfavorable dollar to yen ratios, product mix and competitive price pressures and the effects of the third-quarter strike made it difficult to achieve an earnings increase this year."
 Pearsall concluded, "Looking forward, our proposed merger with Newell Co. is on schedule and we look forward to the Feb. 14 shareholders meeting when our shareholders will be asked to vote upon the previously announced transaction. We look forward to joining the Newell Co. family of companies and are enthusiastic about the benefits and opportunities that will be derived from being part of an outstanding company such as Newell."
