VF FORECASTS INCREASED FIRST QUARTER EARNINGS

 VF FORECASTS INCREASED FIRST QUARTER EARNINGS
 WYOMISSING, Pa., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- VF Corporation (NYSE: VFC)


today announced that it expects earnings for the first quarter to increase approximately 45 percent over the $.48 primary earnings per share reported in the first quarter of 1991. This level of earnings is significantly higher than analysts' estimates, which are generally in the $.50-.55 range for the quarter. Actual earnings will be released by the company on April 21.
 Lawrence R. Pugh, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, stated, "Sales and earnings for the quarter have continued the trends experienced in 1991. Performance at most domestic and international divisions has been substantially stronger than anticipated, especially so within the jeanswear divisions." Continuing, Pugh commented, "The first quarter earnings outlook is very gratifying, however this quarter represents only a small portion of the year's total volume. Although our first quarter results might indicate a stronger year than first anticipated, it is still too early to predict whether annual results will exceed original expectations." VF had earlier indicated that sales and earnings for 1992 would likely increase by 10-15 percent over the record 1991 sales of $2.95 billion and earnings per share of $2.75.
