        AMERICAN BRANDS REPORTS THIRD QUARTER EARNINGS 


Old Greenwich, CT, October 21 -- American Brands, Inc. today
announced that net income for the quarter ended September 30,
1994 rose 79% to $152 million, or 75 cents per Common share, from
$85 million, or 42 cents per share, for the third quarter of
1993.  Fully diluted earnings per share rose 74% to 73 cents, and
revenues were up 11% to $3.7 billion.  Even excluding last year's
third quarter restructuring provisions and one-time buydown of
trade inventories by The American Tobacco Company, earnings per
share would have been up 21%.
     For the nine months, net income was $465 million, or $2.30
per share.  This compared with net income of $282 million, or
$1.40 per share, and income before accounting changes of $483
million, or $2.39 per share, last year.  Last year's first
quarter included one-time charges related to the adoption of FAS
106 and 112.  Revenues for the nine months rose 3% to $10.2
billion.
             The effective income tax rate for the quarter was 42.3%,
compared with 47.1% a year ago.  Last year's quarter was affected
by a higher tax relating to foreign operations and the
proportionately greater impact of nondeductible
 goodwill on
reduced income.  For the nine months, the effective rate was
38.7% versus 37% last year.
             Chairman and Chief Executive Officer William J. Alley said: 
"Our strong third quarter benefited from broad gains at most of
our operations.  Contribution from tobacco operations was up 90%,
reflecting American Tobacco's comparison with last year's
depressed results as well as higher contribution for U.K.-based
Gallaher Tobacco; worldwide cigarette unit volume increased 10%,
with both companies registering gains.  Contribution from
nontobacco operations was up 6% to a record, with double digit
increases registered by distilled spirits and by each of our
long-term growth operations:  hardware and home improvement
products, office products and golf products.
             "The American Tobacco Company, whose pending sale to B.A.T
Industries for $1 billion is undergoing antitrust review by the
Federal Trade Commission, completed the quarter with revenues up
35%, contribution of $49 million compared with a loss of $35
million in last year's third quarter, and a significant increase
in cigarette unit sales and market share.  Last year's quarter
included a $30 million charge associated with the one-time
buydown of trade inventories, which affected both revenues and
contribution, and a $30 million restructuring provision.  In
spite of intense competition, American Tobacco's brands achieved
gains in all price categories, with particularly strong unit
performances by Montclair and Misty resulting from increased
marketing support. 
             "Industry units were up 5.3% and 8.2% in the third quarter
and nine months, respectively, although these numbers are
distorted by comparisons with last year's disrupted market
conditions.  American Tobacco's units increased 24% and 17% in
the quarter and nine months, respectively, resulting in market
share increases in both periods.  For the latest 12 months,
market share was 7.2%, compared with 6.8% a year ago.
             "Gallaher, the number 1 tobacco company in the U.K. and
Ireland, achieved contribution increases of 5% and 2% in dollars
and sterling, respectively, in the quarter.  These increases were
achieved even though last year's quarter benefited from trade
buying in connection with an August 1993 price increase. 
Reflecting last year's trade buying, Gallaher's cigarette unit
sales to the U.K. trade declined 2.6%.  Nevertheless, Silk Cut,
the number 2 brand, achieved a nearly 5% increase, and Gallaher's
estimated share of consumer sales continued to approximate 40%. 
On October 17, Gallaher launched a major gift program intended to
add value to Benson and Hedges, the number 1 brand.  Worldwide,
Gallaher's cigarette unit sales increased nearly 1%, with a
significant gain in exports, reflecting the inclusion of Benson
and Hedges shipments to Continental Europe and another solid gain
in Ireland, which combined, more than offset the U.K. decline.   
             "Distilled spirits achieved record revenues and
contribution, up 12% and 30%, respectively, in the quarter.  Both
Jim Beam Brands, the second largest distilled spirits company in
the U.S., and Whyte & Mackay, the world's number three scotch
whisky producer, achieved record contribution.  As we have been
noting through the year, changes in trade practices at Jim Beam
Brands and last year's acquisition of Invergordon by Whyte &
Mackay are creating volatility in quarter-to-quarter comparisons,
and Beam's 25% increase in contribution in the third quarter is
not trend indicative.  Nevertheless, for the nine months,
contribution from Beam rose 1% to a record in spite of very
competitive market conditions.  Beam's U.S. branded case sales
rose 7% in the quarter, led by a 9% increase for the flagship Jim
Beam bourbon.  For the nine months, estimated depletions of
Beam's major brands from distributors to retailers declined 2.5%
in the U.S. -- in line with industry trends.  Internationally,
Beam continued to perform very well in the third quarter, with a
24% increase in contribution.  Worldwide, its branded case sales
increased 7%. 
             "As a result of aggressive competitive promotional and
pricing activity, Whyte & Mackay's unit volume, excluding
Invergordon, declined nearly 11% in the quarter.  However,
reflecting the inclusion of Invergordon, contribution increased
91%.
             "As noted, our long-term growth businesses, hardware and
home improvement products, office products and golf products, are
all performing very well.  
             "The MasterBrand hardware and home improvement group had an
outstanding quarter, with record revenues and contribution. 
Moen, the North American leader in single handle faucets,
achieved record revenues and reported an increase in
contribution.  Moen continues to benefit from the success of new
marketing programs, strong acceptance of new faucet lines,
improved operating productivity and the robust housing/remodeling
market.  Aristokraft, the second largest manufacturer of kitchen
and bath cabinets, has achieved sales records in 32 of the past
33 months, and MasterBrand's other companies, Master Lock and
Waterloo tool storage products, are the leaders in their
categories and are performing well.  Overall, the strong results
in 1994 have been accompanied by increased investment in
marketing, new products and international expansion.  
             "The ACCO World office products group continued to achieve
strong growth, with record revenues and a 17% increase in
contribution.  Revenue growth has accelerated as the year has
progressed, and the 10% third quarter increase represented broad
gains across all principal units.  The solid financial
performance was driven by share gains with key accounts, a very
strong back-to-school performance and substantial contribution
from new products.  In spite of ongoing pricing pressure, margins
have continued to improve, reflecting the benefit of ACCO's
aggressive cost reduction programs.  
             "The Titleist and Foot-Joy golf group had another record
quarter, with revenues up 9% and contribution up 14%, and it has
achieved solid sales increases in all four core categories: 
balls, shoes, clubs and gloves.  Titleist and Foot-Joy have
continued their strong performance as the number 1 ball, shoe and
glove in professional golf.  Titleist is the most played ball by
far, and it was the winning ball played in 81 tournaments,
worldwide, through September -- three times its nearest
competitor, and, for the first time in its history, Titleist was
the number 1 ball on the Japanese tour, with the most wins. 
Titleist has achieved a 7% unit increase in top-grade ball sales
for the nine months, and Foot-Joy, the number 1 golf shoe, posted
a 18% volume increase.  Overall, contribution for specialty
businesses declined 16% in the quarter, reflecting the absence of
income from the Dollond & Aitchison optical group, which was sold
in July.
             "Excluding investment gains and losses, contribution for The
Franklin Life Insurance Company declined 9% for the quarter but
was up 4% for the nine months.  The decline in the quarter was
due to operating expenses related to Franklin's reengineering
project, which is aimed at streamlining operations and enhancing
revenue growth, and higher mortality costs, partially offset by
the reversal of an accounting reserve no longer required. 
Including investment gains and losses, contribution declined 20%
in the quarter and 33% for the nine months, reflecting last
year's record high investment gains as well as the adoption
effective January 1, 1994, of FAS 115, which mandates that
Franklin's trading securities portfolio be "marked to market." 
Franklin has continued to outperform the industry in the
recruiting of new associates, which is a key to future sales
growth.
             "Overall, our operations have been achieving broad gains,
and the outlook is encouraging.  Each of our principal operations
except Franklin Life posted an increase in contribution for the
nine months, and, excluding investment gains and losses,
Franklin's contribution would have been up as well.
             "Half our operating company contribution thus far in 1994
has been derived from our nontobacco businesses.  These
businesses are strongly positioned in their markets.  
             "The three long-term growth businesses, MasterBrand hardware
and home improvement products, ACCO World office products and
Titleist and Foot-Joy golf products, have been achieving
sustained gains, both financially and in the marketplace. 
Prospects for these businesses continue to be very favorable. 
For MasterBrand, with major market leadership positions,
important new products, broadening distribution and very positive
industry fundamentals, we expect solid long-term growth.  ACCO
World, which is also solidly positioned with a substantial
international presence and an excellent infrastructure, has
established strong momentum with new business gained with key
customers as well as with significant new products, and we are
pleased that ACCO has consistently been outperforming industry
growth.  In golf products, Titleist and Foot-Joy are well
positioned as worldwide leadership brands and have the ability to
grow profitably on a sustained basis.
             "In distilled spirits, in spite of competitive conditions
creating pressure on pricing and margins, we are encouraged by
the growth in contribution for the nine months and the continued
powerful generation of cash, and we now anticipate modest
contribution growth for the full year.  At Franklin Life, despite
the setback in the third quarter, the underlying insurance
operations should perform well, but investment gains in last
year's fourth quarter were an exceptionally high $41 million.  
             "The American Tobacco Company's earnings will continue to be
consolidated in American Brands' overall results pending
consummation of the sale.  In the face of the pending sale and
fierce competitive conditions, we are particularly proud of the
performance of our associates at American Tobacco.
             "Gallaher is the number 1 tobacco company in the U.K., with
approximately 40% of the cigarette market.  We now expect that
Gallaher, in spite of intense competition, will achieve profit
growth for the full year.
             "Overall for American Brands, last year's results benefited
from extraordinarily high investment gains at Franklin Life of
$93 million, compared with a loss of $4 million for the first
nine months of 1994.  Conversely, last year's net income included
a $198 million charge related to the adoption of FAS Statements
No. 106, 112 and 115.  We now anticipate that earnings per share
excluding these items will increase for the year, though reported
earnings per share before accounting changes may well show a
modest decline.
             "Last month, we announced changes that will ensure an
orderly executive transition at American Brands.  With a strong
management team, outstanding brands and market positions and
excellent momentum, along with a firm resolve to aggressively
build value for our shareholders, we are optimistic about our
long-term prospects."

(2) On June 30, 1993, the Benson and Hedges European cigarette
    trademark was acquired from B.A.T Industries, PLC in exchange
    for the assignment of certain overseas trademarks of The
    American Tobacco Company and other considerations.  The results
    from the Benson and Hedges trademark are included in
    international tobacco from the date of acquisition.  As part of
    the transaction, a pretax gain of $25.5 million was recognized
    in the domestic tobacco product line.

(3) On April 26, 1994, the Company entered into an agreement for the
    sale of The American Tobacco Company to B.A.T Industries, PLC
    for a price of $1 billion, which would be largely tax free.  The
    transaction is subject to review by government antitrust
    agencies and other conditions.  The proceeds from the sale could
    be used for share purchases, debt reduction, strategic
    acquisitions or other general corporate purposes.  

(4) During the fourth quarter of 1993, Whyte & Mackay, a subsidiary
    of Gallaher Limited, completed its acquisition of Invergordon
    Distillers Group PLC by purchasing the remaining outstanding
    shares.  Operations were consolidated from  December 1, 1993.

(5) On December 31, 1993, the Company elected early adoption of FAS
    115, "Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity
    Securities," under which trading securities purchased with the
    intent of being sold in the near term are carried at fair value
    and the applicable unrealized gains and losses are recorded in
    income.

(6) On July 12, 1994, Dollond & Aitchison Group PLC, a subsidiary of
    Gallaher Limited, was sold for total consideration of about 94
    million pounds ($146 million) which approximated the carrying
    value of the company.

(7) Effective January 1, 1993, the Company adopted FAS 106,
    "Employers' Accounting for Postretirement Benefits Other Than
    Pensions," requiring accrual of the expected costs during the
    years that employees render the service that qualifies them for
    coverage.  Also, effective  January 1, 1993,  the Company
    adopted FAS 112, "Employers' Accounting for Postemployment
    Benefits," requiring accrual of the expected costs of benefits
    provided to former or inactive employees after employment but
    before retirement.

(8) The American Tobacco Company subsidiary and other tobacco
    manufacturers are defendants in various actions based upon
    allegations that human ailments have resulted from tobacco use. 
    It is not possible to predict the outcome of the pending
    litigation, and management is unable to make a reasonable
    estimate of the amount or range of loss that could result from
    an unfavorable determination of the pending litigation.  It is
    possible that an unfavorable determination could have a material
    effect on the Company's results of operations and cash flows in
    a particular quarterly or annual period and could encourage the
    commencement of additional litigation.  Management believes that
    there are meritorious defenses to the pending actions and that
    the pending actions will not have a material adverse effect upon
    the financial  condition of the Company.  These actions are
    being vigorously contested.
