                             HAWKINS CHEMICAL, INC.
                     NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


1.   Prior to December 30, 1998, the basis of the financial statements presented
     included the accounts of Hawkins Chemical, Inc. and its wholly owned
     subsidiary, Hawkins Water Treatment Group, Inc. (the Company). All
     significant inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated.
     Effective December 30, 1998 the subsidiary was merged into Hawkins
     Chemical, Inc.

     The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been
     prepared in accordance with the instructions for Form 10-Q and,
     accordingly, do not include all information and footnotes required by
     generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.
     These statements should be read in conjunction with the financial
     statements and footnotes included in the Company's Annual Report on Form
     10-K for the year ended September 27, 1998, previously filed with the
     Securities and Exchange Commission. In the opinion of management, the
     accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements contain all
     adjustments necessary to present fairly the Company's financial position
     and the results of its operations and cash flows for the periods presented.
     All adjustments made to the interim financial statements were of a normal
     recurring nature.

     Effective September 28, 1998, the Company adopted Statement of Financial
     Accounting Standards No. 130, "Reporting Comprehensive Income." For the
     periods presented, comprehensive income is the same as net income.

     The accounting policies followed by the Company are set forth in Note 1 to
     the Company's financial statements in the 1998 Hawkins Chemical, Inc.
     Annual Report on Form 10-K, which is incorporated by this reference filed
     with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 28, 1998.

2.   The results of operations for the period ended June 30, 1999 are not
     necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full
     year.

3.   Inventories, principally valued by the LIFO method, are less than current
     cost by approximately $1,274,000 at June 30, 1999. Inventory consists
     principally of finished goods. Inventory quantities fluctuate during the
     year. No material amounts of interim liquidation of inventory quantities
     have occurred that are not expected to be replaced by year-end.

4.   During 1995, the Company had a fire in the office/warehouse of The Lynde
     Company, a former wholly owned subsidiary. Through the end of the fiscal
     year ended September 27, 1998, the Company had paid approximately
     $2,728,000 in settlement and legal costs in connection with the Company's
     defense of a lawsuit filed against it as a result of the fire. The
     Company's insurers denied coverage and refused to defend the lawsuit. In
     the first quarter of fiscal 1999, the Company prevailed against its
     insurers to recover the legal and settlement costs in connection with the
     1995 warehouse fire. Through the nine-month period ended June 30, 1999, the
     Company has received $2,851,708, of which $97,708 was received during the
     third quarter, which covers substantially all of its settlement and legal
     costs. The umbrella insurer has agreed to defend and indemnify the Company
     on remaining claims under the Settlement Agreement up to and in accordance
     with its policy limits of $5,000,000. The Company's results of operations
     for the first nine months of fiscal 1999 include $2,851,708 associated with
     this settlement.

5.   During the nine-month period ended June 30, 1999, the Company acquired
     through open market purchases and retired 499,614 shares of its common
     stock for $4,888,288.

I
tem 2.              MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
                OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Net sales decreased $759,719, or 3.0%, in the third quarter of this fiscal year
as compared to the same quarter a year ago, and increased $331,914, or 0.5%, in
the first nine months of fiscal 1999 as compared to the same period in fiscal
1998. The decrease in sales for the quarter is mainly attributable to selling
price decreases of a single, large-volume product (caustic soda) which was
partially offset by increased sales volumes in food additives, pharmaceuticals
and most other product lines. Also contributing to the sales decrease was the
above normal amount of rainfall in most of the areas we service. This decreased
the chemical sales to the water treatment plants, waste treatment plants and
municipal swimming pools that normally use large quantities of chemicals during
the summer months. Municipalities normally pump approximately three times as
much water in the summer months as in the winter months. Due to the heavier than
normal rainfall, many of the municipalities were pumping what we would consider
winter rates.

Gross margin, as a percentage of net sales, for the third quarter of this 
fiscal year was 26.5% compared to 24.0% for the same quarter one year ago, 
and 24.0% for the first nine months of this fiscal year, compared to 22.9% 
for the first nine months of fiscal 1998. These increases were mainly due to 
increased sales volumes in product lines which generally have a higher profit 
margin. Also contributing to the gross margin percentage increase was the 
decrease in the selling price of the single, large-volume product line 
mentioned above, where both the selling price and cost of the product had 
decreased from one year ago. The demand for this product does not fluctuate 
materially as the cost and selling price increases or decreases. The Company 
has generally been able to and expects to continue to adjust its selling 
prices as the cost of materials and other expenses change, thereby 
maintaining relatively stable dollar gross margins.

Selling, general and administrative expenses, as a percentage of net sales, for
the third quarter of fiscal 1999 were 11.6% compared to 10.9% for the same
quarter one year ago, and 11.1% for the first nine months of fiscal 1999 as
compared to 10.6% for the first nine months of fiscal 1998. Stated as a
percentage of the same period one year ago, the third quarter increase in such
expenses was 3.2%, or $88,462, and the nine-month increase was 5.0%, or
$373,741. These increases were mainly due to increased expenses for employee
compensation and benefits, which make up the majority of the selling, general
and administrative expenditures. Of the remaining expenses in this category, no
single item is more than 6% of the total. Most of these remaining expenses
fluctuate only slightly with sales.

During 1995, the Company had a fire in the office/warehouse of The Lynde
Company, a former wholly owned subsidiary. Through the end of the fiscal year
ended September 27, 1998, the Company had paid approximately $2,728,000 in
settlement and legal costs in connection with the Company's defense of a lawsuit
filed against it as a result of the fire. The Company's insurers denied coverage
and refused to defend the lawsuit. In the first quarter of fiscal 1999, the
Company prevailed against its insurers to recover the legal and settlement costs
in connection with the 1995 warehouse fire. Through the nine-month period ended
June 30, 1999, the Company has received $2,851,708, of which $97,708 was
received during the third quarter, which covers substantially all of its
settlement and legal costs. The umbrella insurer has agreed to defend and
indemnify the Company on remaining claims under the Settlement Agreement up to
and in accordance with its policy limits of $5,000,000. The Company's results of
operations for the first nine months of fiscal 1999 include $2,851,708
associated with this settlement.

Income from operations increased $433,295, or 12.8%, in the third quarter and
$3,324,759, or 38.4%, in the first nine months of fiscal 1999 as compared to the
same periods one year ago. The third quarter increase is primarily due to the
gross profit increase. The nine-month increase is primarily attributable to the
amounts received from the Company's insurers in connection with the 1995 fire
referred to in the previous paragraph.

Interest income decreased $24,921 in the third quarter of fiscal 1999 as
compared to the same quarter one year ago and $136,599 for the first nine months
of this fiscal year as compared to the same period one year ago. These decreases
are the result of investing a larger amount of the cash available for investment
in tax-free municipal bonds, which generally have a lower rate of return, since
earnings from them are not taxable for Federal income tax purposes. Interest
expense decreased slightly in the third quarter and the first nine months of
fiscal 1999 compared to the same periods one year ago due to the decline in the
amount of long-term debt outstanding. Other 


                                    7


<PAGE>


miscellaneous income (deductions) decreased as compared to the previous periods
due to a gain on the sale of land and building in 1998.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

For the nine-month period ended June 30, 1999, cash flows from operations were
$11,445,109. This amount was $7,705,392 higher than cash provided by operations
during the same period one year ago, due mainly to an increase in net income and
to changes in certain current assets and liability accounts discussed below.
During the nine-month period ended June 30, 1999, the Company invested
$1,834,620 in property and equipment additions and increased investments
available-for-sale by $2,707,823.

Accounts receivable and accounts payable decreased during the first nine 
months of fiscal 1999. These decreases are typical for the first nine months 
of our fiscal year. Inventories decreased due mainly to lower quantities and 
costs of the single, large-volume product (caustic soda). The Company expects 
to restore these quantities by fiscal year end. Other current assets 
decreased due to a reduction in prepaid income taxes that existed at fiscal 
year end. Other current liabilities decreased as a result of the payment of 
benefit plan accruals that existed at fiscal year end. The Company did not 
issue any securities during the nine-month period ended June 30, 1999.

Through open market purchases, the Company acquired and retired 165,249 shares
of common stock for $1,482,716 during the quarter ended June 30, 1999 and
499,614 shares of common stock for $4,888,288 during the nine-month period ended
June 30, 1999.

The cash flows from operations, combined with the Company's strong cash
position, puts the Company in a position to fund both short and long-term
working capital and capital investment needs with internally generated funds.
Management does not, therefore, anticipate the need to engage in significant
financing activities in either the short or long-term. If the need to obtain
additional capital does arise, however, management is confident that the
Company's total debt-to-capital ratio puts it in a position to issue either debt
or equity securities on favorable terms.

Although management continually reviews opportunities to enhance the value of
the Company through strategic acquisitions, other capital investments and
strategic divestitures, no material commitments for such investments or
divestitures currently exist. Until appropriate investment opportunities are
identified, the Company will continue to invest excess cash in conservative
investments pursuant to an investment policy adopted by the Board of Directors.
The policy directs investment in short-term and mid-term fixed income
instruments earning a market rate of interest without assuming undue risk of
principal. Primary objectives are preservation of principal, maintenance of
liquidity, and rate of return. Cash equivalents consist of short-term
certificates of deposit and investments consist of relatively low-risk
investment and annuity contracts with highly rated, stable insurance companies,
and marketable securities consisting of investment grade municipal securities,
all of which are carried at cost which approximates fair value. All cash
equivalents are highly liquid and are available upon demand. There are some
penalties associated with the early liquidation of the Company's investment and
annuity contracts.

Other than as discussed above, management is not aware of any matters that have
materially affected the first nine months of fiscal 1999, but are not expected
to materially affect future periods, nor is management aware of other matters
not affecting this period that are expected to materially affect future periods.


YEAR 2000 COMPLIANCE

As generally known, the Year 2000 issue pertains to the inability of some
computer hardware and software and other electronic devices to operate properly
as January 1, 2000 approaches, and beyond. The Company has taken, and will
continue to take, actions intended to minimize the impact of the Year 2000
issue, although it is impossible to eliminate these risks entirely.

The Company's major information technology (IT) systems and infrastructure have
been upgraded or replaced in the ordinary course of business over the last two
years. Approximately $534,300 has been spent through June 30, 1999 to upgrade
the Company's primary IT systems, IT infrastructure, shipping system and
security systems, and to replace the telephone, voicemail and timekeeping
systems to Year 2000 compliant systems. The Company will continue to invest in
technology to accommodate the Company's future growth, with such improvements
intended to achieve Year 2000 compliance as a byproduct of the upgrades.

                                     8

<PAGE>


The Company has completed the majority of its hardware, software and equipment
testing for Year 2000 compliance. Testing included, but was not limited to,
corporate IT systems, IT infrastructure, security systems, telephone systems,
manufacturing and laboratory equipment, and timekeeping systems. The Company is
currently in the final stage of its testing process and is scheduled to complete
all testing by September 1999. Although the Company does not expect that costs
necessary to replace non-compliant systems will have a material impact on the
Company's results of operations, liquidity, or financial condition, it is not
possible to estimate the total expected cost associated with achieving Year 2000
issue readiness.

The Company relies on computer processing for its business activities and the
Year 2000 issue creates risk for the Company from unforeseen problems in the
Company's systems and from third parties with whom the Company does business.
The failure of the Company's systems and/or third party systems could have a
material adverse effect on the Company's results of operations, liquidity, and
financial condition.

Year 2000 readiness of third parties with whom the Company does business,
particularly suppliers of critical products and providers of utility and
communication services, could impair the Company's ability to deliver products
and services and could cause system failures or errors, business interruptions
and, in a worst case scenario, the inability to engage in normal business
practices for an unknown length of time. This worst case scenario, if it should
occur, could have a material adverse effect on the Company's operations,
liquidity or financial condition, particularly if the disruption continues for a
significant length of time.

While third party risk related to the Year 2000 issues is difficult to quantify
or control, the Company is taking steps to try to minimize the potential adverse
effect that could arise. The Company has sent Year 2000 surveys to its suppliers
asking for the compliance status of suppliers' products and internal operations.
The responses received by the Company to date indicate that most of its
suppliers expect to be Year 2000 compliant in a timely manner. The Company is
developing third party contingency plans as it identifies partners evidencing
inadequate Year 2000 preparations. Contingency plans include plans to accumulate
extra inventory and/or establish alternative sources of supply and channels of
distribution. However, even with diligent planning, third party providers pose
an uncertain risk which cannot be entirely eliminated.

Due to the general uncertainty inherent in the Year 2000 issue, resulting in
part from the uncertainty of the Year 2000 issue readiness of third-party
suppliers and customers, the Company is unable to determine at this time whether
the consequences of Year 2000 issue failures will have a material impact on the
Company's results of operations, liquidity, or financial condition.

RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

In June 1997, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Statement
of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 131, "Disclosures about Segments of
an Enterprise and Related Information." SFAS No. 131 redefines how operating
segments are determined and requires disclosures of certain financial and
descriptive information about a company's operating segments. In accordance with
SFAS No. 131, the segment disclosure, if any, will be included in the Company's
Form 10-K for the year ending October 3, 1999.

In June 1998, the FASB issued SFAS No. 133, "Accounting for Derivative
Instruments and Hedging Activities." SFAS No. 133 requires companies to record
derivatives on the balance sheet as assets and liabilities, measured at fair
value. Gains or losses resulting from changes in the values of those derivatives
would be accounted for depending on the use of the derivative and whether it
qualifies for hedge accounting. In July 1999, the FASB issued SFAS No. 137
delaying the effective date of SFAS No. 133 for one year, for fiscal years
beginning after June 15, 2000. Management has not yet determined the effects
SFAS No. 133 will have on its financial position or the results of its
operations.

I
tem 3.       QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

At June 30, 1999, the Company had an investment portfolio of fixed income
securities of $2,309,414, excluding $19,529,673 of those classified as cash and
cash equivalents and variable rate securities. These securities, like all fixed
income instruments, are subject to interest rate risk and will decline in value
if market interest rates increase. However, the Company has the ability to hold
its fixed income investments until maturity and therefore the Company would not
expect to recognize an adverse impact in income or cash flows.




                          PART II. OTHER INFORMATION


Item 1.  Legal Proceedings

As of the date of this filing, the Registrant was not involved in any pending
legal proceedings to which the Registrant was a party or of which any property
of the Registrant was the subject other than ordinary routine litigation
incidental to their business, except as follows:

     LYNDE COMPANY WAREHOUSE FIRE. On March 1, 1995, the Company and its former
     subsidiary, The Lynde Company, were named as defendants in an action
     entitled DONNA M. COOKSEY, ET AL. V. HAWKINS CHEMICAL, INC. AND THE LYNDE
     COMPANY ("COOKSEY"). This action was certified as a partial class action in
     state district court in Hennepin County, Minnesota. The plaintiffs sought
     damages for personal injury and other damages alleged to have been caused
     by the alleged release of hazardous substances as a result of a fire at an
     office/warehouse facility used by The Lynde Company. The Registrant entered
     into a class settlement agreement with the class, pursuant to which the
     Registrant agreed to pay certain of the class' costs and expenses, as well
     as certain compensation to the class pursuant to a Matrix and Plan of
     Distribution which form a part of the settlement agreement (the "Settlement
     Agreement"). The district court gave final approval of the settlement.

     The Registrant's primary and umbrella insurers had denied a tender of the
     defense of the lawsuit and had denied any obligation to indemnify the
     Registrant for damages claimed by third parties in connection with the
     fire. On July 7, 1995, the Registrant commenced suits against The North
     River Insurance Company and the Westchester Fire Insurance Company, the
     primary and umbrella insurers, respectively, in the United States District
     Court for the District of Minnesota. On October 6, 1996, the Court entered
     an Order for Judgment against the two insurers declaring that they each
     owed the Registrant a duty to defend the Cooksey action, that the insurers
     had breached their duty to defend and that the Registrant was entitled to
     judgment against North River in the amount of $890,174 and against
     Westchester in the amount of $90,868 for fees and expenses incurred by the
     Registrant through October of 1996 in defending against the Cooksey action
     and in prosecuting the action against the two insurers. The two insurers
     appealed the judgments to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, which
     affirmed the lower court judgments.

     During fiscal 1995, the Registrant recorded $750,000 to cover expected
     legal and settlement costs for this litigation and an additional $1,771,439
     in fiscal 1997. Since the beginning of fiscal 1999, the Registrant has been
     reimbursed for substantially all of its settlement and litigation expenses.
     Hawkins' umbrella insurer has agreed to defend and indemnify Hawkins on
     remaining claims under the Settlement Agreement up to and in accordance
     with its policy limits of $5,000,000.
