 Terry W. Patrick, USA Waste's president, stated that the sharp increase in operating results, which reflected an increase of over 100 percent in net income and 55 percent in earnings per share on a comparison of first quarter 1992 vs. restated 1991, is a result of the company's strategic acquisition program coupled with the implementation of disciplined management systems to enhance operating margins.
 USA's first quarter 1992 results also showed a marked improvement over fourth quarter 1991 as net income increased 55 percent and earnings per share climbed 40 percent. USA Waste completed four business acquisitions during the first quarter, two of which were included in 1992 results for only a portion of the quarter. As a result, Patrick noted that annualizing first quarter results would not be indicative of the company's current run rate. USA Waste is now generating annual revenues in excess of $50 million and anticipates second quarter 1992 earnings to show improvement over those reported for the first quarter.
 USA Waste, based in Dallas is a fast gowing solid waste management company, performing both waste collection and disposal services in multiple locations nationwide.
