 SYBRON CHEMICAL INDUSTRIES ANNOUNCES
 QUARTERLY EPS INCREASED 73.9 PERCENT
 BIRMINGHAM, N.J., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Sybron Chemical Industries Inc. (NASDAQ: SYCM) today reported that its sales, operating income and net income for the first quarter ending March 31, 1992, increased by 11.7 percent, 20.1 percent and 57.3 percent, respectively, over the same quarter of 1991.
 Earnings per share rose 73.9 percent in the first quarter of 1992 to $.40 (based on 4,865,000 shares outstanding) from $.23 in last year's first quarter (based on 5 million shares outstanding).
 Sales were $36,829,000 compared with $32,964,000 in 1991, with operating income of $4,824,000 compared with $4,015,000 in 1991. Net income for the quarter was $1,955,000 compared with $1,243,000 in 1991.
 Sales and operating income increased significantly in each of the company's business segments: Textile Chemical Specialties and
Environmental Products and Services. The increase in sales was helped by growth in the U.S. textile and home water conditioning markets and overall increases in the company's market shares. Europe division textile chemical sales, in terms of U.S. dollars, increased by 5.5 percent despite a negative currency translation effect of 6.2 percent.
 Operating income was enhanced by lower raw material costs, greater manufacturing productivity and a favorable mix of product sales. Net income was positively impacted by lower interest costs and a reduced effective tax rate.
 Sybron Chemicals, which began trading publicly on March 31, 1992, is an international specialty chemical company which develops, produces and markets products and related services in two main markets: environmental (primarily related to water and waste treatment) and textile dyeing and finishing.
