Fuzzy Reception At Zenith


In Business This Week

FUZZY RECEPTION AT ZENITH

The picture for Zenith Electronics is getting worse. In the third quarter, the last major American TV maker lost $41.8 million, compared with a loss of $1.5 million in 1991. That brings its loss for the first nine months to $85.6 million, vs. a deficit of $52.1 million last year, on sales of $858 million, a 7% drop. Nearly half of the third-quarter loss comes from $23 million in charges to cover layoffs of 390 salaried workers--15% of its U.S. staff--as well as the cost of moving most of its U.S. operations to Mexico. Because of its dismal results, Zenith is reconsidering its plan to sell 8 million new shares.EDITED BY HARRIS COLLINGWOOD
