Of Year

    MINNEAPOLIS, April 16 /PRNewswire/ --
     Analysts International Corporation (Nasdaq:   ANLY) today announced again
 that first quarter results, scheduled to be released on Thursday, April 26,
 2001, will show a revenue increase over the previous quarter, with cash
 earnings per share now expected to be $0.05 to $0.07, before a non-recurring
 charge of approximately $0.01 per share that's related to a one-time
 consulting fee.  These results were first reported last Thursday, April 12, as
 they became available.
     Company officials noted that earnings for the quarter have been negatively
 affected by ongoing margin pressures, due to the current challenging business
 environment for IT services and the resulting competitive pricing.  They also
 noted that those pressures might continue the balance of the year and expect
 cash earnings per share for the 12 months ending December 31, 2001, to be in
 the range of $0.30 to $0.40.
     Frederick W. Lang, chairman and chief executive officer of the company,
 stated, "While we expect the near-term and the balance of 2001 to be
 challenging, we remain very positive with respect to our long-term prospects.
 The steps that we have undertaken in late 2000 and have continued this year to
 restructure and reduce costs leave us extremely well-positioned to weather
 these challenges and emerge with greater market share and a substantially
 stronger franchise."
