QUESTIONS AT HEAD SPORTSWEAR; IS HEAD GOLF ON THE MARKET?

     Head Sportswear President & CEO Jack Dougherty has denied
rumors the "upscale tennis and golfwear manufacturer is for sale
by parent company Austria Tabakwerke."  Dougherty said that
Austria recently invested $90M into Head, and "clothing is an
important part of that."  Head has moved their production and
design facilities to Princeton, NJ, while warehousing and
administration remain in Columbia, MD.  Thom Hamacher, VP/Tennis
Apparel, said Head "will protect its specialty line sold through
specialty outlets and select department stores."  Head's new
Sabatini collection hits stores November 1 (Sandy Dolbow, TENNIS
BUYER'S GUIDE, 7/95 issue).  Head Golf is shipping all of its
clubs out of their Boulder, CO, headquarters, according to GOLF
WORLD.  The company's Fort Worth, TX, facility closed last month
and sources say Head Sports, parent of Head Golf, "has been
talking with several potential buyers for its golf equipment
division" (GOLF WORLD, 7/7 issue).
