THE HENLEY GROUP REPORTS FIRST QUARTER EARNINGS

 THE HENLEY GROUP REPORTS FIRST QUARTER EARNINGS
 HAMPTON, N.H., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Henley Group, Inc.


(NASDAQ: HENG), for the first three months of 1992 achieved improved operating results as net sales, gross profit and operating income all increased from year-ago levels.
 The aerospace and industrial products company posted net income of $68 million, or $3.45 per share, on net sales of $183 million. The latest results included a pretax gain of $90 million ($73 million after tax) on the sale of Henley's remaining 6.5 million shares of Fisher Scientific International Inc.
 The gain in operating income reflected increased shipments of aircraft landing gear to The Boeing Co., principally for the 747 program, and to McDonnell Douglas Corp. for the MD-11, as well as higher sales of aircraft-passenger boarding bridges and other industrial products, principally Abex friction-braking materials. These sales increases more than offset the continued decline in military aerospace sales. In addition, interest expense decreased as a result of Henley's debt-reduction program, and amortization of goodwill and other intangibles declined.
 For the first quarter of 1991, Henley had a loss from continuing operations of $25 million, or $1.27 per share, a loss from discontinued operations of $51 million, or $2.59 per share, and a net loss of $157 million, or $7.97 per share, on net sales of $177 million. The net loss included a $122 million after-tax charge for post-retirement benefit costs other than pensions and a $41 million extraordinary gain on the purchase of $135 million face value of debt securities of Henley's Pneumo Abex Corporation subsidiary.
 At March 31, 1992, Henley had cash and cash equivalents of $463 million.
