 WTC INDUSTRIES, INC. REPORTS THIRD QUARTER RESULTS
 MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- WTC Industries, Inc.


(NASDAQ: WTCO) reported today the results of the third quarter. Net sales for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 1992 were $661,468 compared to $1,845,807 for the same quarter last year. Such comparison to the year-ago period reflects the effect of a $1.5 million non-recurring sale made to a single customer in the third quarter last year.
 The net loss for the third quarter this year was $164,781, or $0.09 per share, compared to net income of $499,239, or $.40 per share, in the same quarter last year. The net loss primarily resulted from the decline in net sales, as well as increased selling, general, and administrative expenses. The increase in selling, general, and administrative expenses reflects increased travel and trade show expenses, legal fees, outside selling commissions, and higher expenses related to public relations and the preparation of new marketing materials and product brochures.
 Gross profit declined to $361,244 in the third quarter this year from $882,635 in the comparable quarter last year. Gross profit margin as a percentage of net sales, however, increased to 54.6 percent during the third quarter this year, compared to 47.8 percent last year.
 WTC Industries, Inc. holds the exclusive rights to manufacture and market the patented PentaPure(R) resin worldwide. The company supplies water purification devices for consumer, industrial, and OEM applications.
