 ZIEGLER ANNOUNCES INCREASED EARNINGS
 WEST BEND, Wis., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ziegler Company, Inc.


(AMEX: ZCO), a financial services holding company, announced today an increase in earnings for the third quarter of 1992.
 In the three months ended Sept. 30, 1992, total revenues were $11,819,000, compared to $10,606,000 in the third quarter of 1991. Net income for the quarter was $1,321,000 compared to $1,089,000 in the third quarter of 1991. Earnings per share in the third quarter of 1992 were 53 cents compared to 41 cents in 1991.
 For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 1992, total revenues and net income were $35,097,000 and $3,314,000, respectively, compared to $32,111,000 and $3,328,000 in 1991. Earnings per share in the nine months of 1992 were $1.28 versus $1.26.
 According to Peter D. Ziegler, president and chief executive officer, as reported previously, the company bought back 300,000 shares from its largest shareholder in August at a price below both the prevailing market price and book value per share. This purchase favorably affected the earnings per share calculations for both the three month and nine month periods ended Sept. 30, 1992.
 Mr. Ziegler said, "The increase in consolidated earnings for the quarter was shared by each of the financial services subsidiaries." B.C. Ziegler and Company, an investment banking firm and the principal subsidiary, increased its earnings on the strength of an increased level of church underwritings and a continued supply of refinancings at Ziegler Securities Division, he said. "The sustainability of this level of refinancing will be almost entirely dependent on the absolute level of interest rates," said Mr. Ziegler.
 He added that Ziegler Asset Management, Inc., the company's newest subsidiary, recorded its first full quarter of profitability in the third quarter. "We look to a predictable increase in earnings from ZAMI in the future as assets under management continue to increase," Mr. Ziegler said.
