ZURN ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER EARNINGS

 ZURN ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER EARNINGS
 ERIE, Pa., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Zurn Industries, Inc.


(NYSE: ZRN) a leading designer and manufacturer of power systems and equipment, and water control products for environmental applications, announced today that net income for the quarter ended June 30, 1992, was $5,635,000 ($.45 per share), compared to last year's $6,185,000 ($.49 per share) income before accounting changes and net loss of $10,549,000 ($.84 per share).
 Sales for the quarter were $143,244,000, up from last year's $138,465,000.
 Power Systems revenues increased 14 percent over last year, while a decline in water resource construction sales lowered Water Control revenues. Working from a record high backlog, Lynx Golf sales were up substantially at $13,378,000 compared to $4,978,000 a year ago.
 Orders backlog at June 30, 1992, was $410,000,000, down from $472,000,000 at the beginning of the fiscal year, but up from $370,000,000 a year ago. Chairman George H. Schofield stated that "The slow pace of economic recovery will continue to depress our industrial and nonresidential construction-related businesses; however, the prospects for adding new power plant construction projects to the backlog remains very encouraging. First quarter results were in line with our expectations," he added, "and we are forecasting a second quarter comparable to a year ago, driven by increased power plant construction revenues and the turnaround at Lynx Golf."
