     About Victor Industries
     Victor Industries, Inc. produces and distributes proprietary compounds to
 counteract pollution problems related to commercial and agricultural run-off
 pollution, mine waste water, petrochemical spills, radiation leaks, animal
 odor, phosphate and nitrate pollution, chemical effluents and sulfur
 emissions.  The company has integrated nature's only negatively charged
 mineral, an ammonia/nitrate absorbent, air purifier and hazardous waste
 absorbent, into a variety of useful products.  One significant use is on golf
 course turf as a soil amendment, where Victor's products have the ability to
 absorb up to forty percent of its weight in water, reducing the need for
 watering.  The compounds also release nitrates and phosphates as the grass
 requires it, reducing the number of applications of fertilizer and also
 reducing the leaching of nitrates and phosphates into groundwater.
     Recently the EPA proposed strict new regulations to reduce water pollution
 from large industrial feed lot operations, affecting nearly 39,000 feed plants
 nationwide, including dairies, chicken, pig and turkey farms.  Agricultural
 pollution is both a direct and indirect cause of human health impacts.  The
 WHO reports that nitrogen levels in groundwater have grown in many parts of
 the world as a result of "intensification of farming practice" (WHO, 1993).
 The EPA estimates that 128 billion pounds of manure is generated each year.
 Victor estimates that feed lot operators would use between five and thirty
 pounds of its proprietary compound for each ton of manure generated to
 effectively remove ammonia and phosphates from the waste stream, creating a
 large demand for its compound.  Victor is additionally marketing its
 proprietary compound solutions to the golf course and horticulture industries.

 meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section
 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, such statements are
 subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to vary
 materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements.  The

 factors, which could materially affect the company and its operations, are
 included on certain forms the company files with the Securities and Exchange
 Commission.
