 ZITEL REPORTS FIRST QUARTER RESULTS
 MILPITAS, Calif., Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Zitel Corp.


(NASDAQ: ZITL) today reported net sales of $10,764,000 for the first quarter of fiscal year 1992 ended Dec. 31, 1991, versus net sales of $11,366,000 for the same quarter of the prior year. Net income for the quarter was $278,000 ($0.05 per share) versus net income of $762,000 ($0.14 per share) for the same quarter of the prior year.
 Jack King, president and CEO of Zitel stated that "since the results for the quarter did not match last year's, we cannot be completely satisfied with the results. We are at least satisfied that they reflect current market conditions rather than fundamentals of our business.
 "We are pleased," continued King, " that business opportunities increased at the end of the quarter. Those opportunities represented orders that could not be shipped by the end of the quarter or that may close in the future. First shipments of our new CASD(TM) product were made as planned in this quarter representing over a million dollars in revenue in its first month of availability.
 "Further," King stated, "we recently renewed our agreement with Unisys Corp. and would expect the benefits of such to be reflected in future quarters."
 Zitel Corp. designs, manufactures and markets high speed storage subsystems for various applications for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and business end-users of standard mini-computers and mainframe computers. The company is headquartered at 630 Alder Dr., Milpitas, Calif. 95035.
