USANA SHARES NOW TRADE IN NASDAQ MARKET

 SALT LAKE CITY, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the common stock of USANA, Inc. began trading in the NASDAQ over-the-counter market under the symbol "USNA," Myron Wentz, Ph.D., president of USANA announced. USANA, Inc., develops, manufactures, and distributes nutritional products, including vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
 Preliminary first quarter figures show USANA sales of $396,967, compared to sales of $209,328 for the same period of 1992. Operating expenses, however, continued to increase, resulting in a $200,446 net loss for the first quarter of 1993 compared to a net loss of $122,019 for the first quarter of 1992. Myron Wentz, Ph.D., president and CEO of USANA and chairman of the board of Gull Laboratories, commented: "Our primary reason for the spin-off of USANA was to allow Gull Laboratories to concentrate on medical diagnostics and not have to carry the losses of USANA. Our preliminary figures show Gull will report a record first quarter, just as we had expected. We are gratified to see Gull Laboratories performing better than ever and are still optimistic about the future of USANA."
 The company was incorporated on July 20, 1992 and Gull Laboratories, Inc. (NASDAQ: GULL) contributed its Health Products Division to USANA in exchange for USANA stock. USANA was spun off from Gull Laboratories on Jan. 1, 1993 to become a separate and independent company. Each holder of record of Gull common stock on Dec. 15, 1992, the record date of the distribution, has received one share of USANA common stock for each share of Gull stock held as of that date. Certificates are being distributed by mail. Gull stockholders of record on the record date are automatically entitled to participate in the distribution and are not required to do anything to become USANA stockholders.
 In addition to its line of high-quality nutritional products, including unique formulations of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, USANA offers other wellness products and plans to market lines of biologically-safe skin care products and environmentally-friendly household products.
