TELIDENT ANNOUNCES INCREASED REVENUES FOR FIRST HALF OF FISCAL 1993

 MINNEAPOLIS, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Telident, Inc., a Minneapolis- based manufacturer of emergency 9-1-1 computer equipment, announced today revenues of $440,763 for the six months ended Dec. 31, 1992. This represents a 114 percent increase in revenues from $206,031 for the same period a year ago. The company reported a net loss of $749,518, or $.13 per share, for the period, compared to a loss of $736,543, or $.16 per share, for the first half of fiscal 1992.
 Telident also reported increased revenues for the second quarter ended Dec. 31, 1992. Revenues for the period were $220,493, up from revenues of $180,089 for the second quarter of the previous year. Net loss for the quarter was $409,908, or $.07 per share, compared to a loss of $319,443, or $.07 per share, for the second quarter of the previous year.
 According to Telident President and CEO Richard L. Hencley, results for the quarter and six-month period were affected by the company's increased emphasis on sales and marketing. "During the past several months we have worked diligently to strengthen and expand our sales network, increasing our sales and marketing investment by 70 percent while keeping other expenses in check," Hencley said. "We have already begun to experience a return on our investment with significantly larger revenues for the first half of the year."
 Hencley noted that the company does not expect to achieve profitability during the current fiscal year because of the lengthy sales cycle for Telident products. However, he was quick to add that he expects the aggressive sales focus to help the company reach profitability in the near term.
 "We are especially enthusiastic about two sales which are 'firsts' for Telident and are expected to lead to additional revenue opportunities,"
Hencley added. "We recently made our first sale to a


U.S. government facility with the installation of two Telident Station Translation Systems (9-1-1 STSTM) for the U.S. Navy in San Francisco. Also during the second quarter, we shipped a Network Control System (9-1-1 NCSTM) to Yankton, S.D., our first installation in that state. New leads and increased interest from the military have already resulted from these sales,"he added.
 Telident also completed a $500,000 convertible debenture offering during the second quarter. Funds from the offering are being used to finance the company's manufacturing and marketing needs. Telident is in the process of arranging for additional financing to support its growth strategy.
