Highest Revenue Levels in Five Years


Rand Worldwide, Inc. (OTCBB: RWWI), a global provider of technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, announces its financial results for the three and six months ended December 31, 2013. 
For the three months ended December 31, 2013, Rand Worldwide, Inc. reported total revenues of $24.5 million as compared with $20.1 million in the same quarter for the prior fiscal year. The Company’s overall gross margin percentage for the current quarter was 49.3%, down from the 52.1% reported for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 as a result of a single larger sale that yielded a lower margin percentage.

For the six months ended December 31, 2013, the Company reported total revenues of $43.0 million as compared with $39.5 million in the prior year. Year to date net income from continuing operations was $1,283,000, or $0.02 per fully diluted share, as compared with net income of $1,090,000, or $0.02 per share, reported for the same period in the prior year.
“This was an outstanding quarter for us aided by a number of larger deals, including one particularly noteworthy sale to a customer in the Education market,” said Lawrence Rychlak, president and chief financial officer at Rand Worldwide. “We were able to show good growth in all of our revenue categories which combined with continued controls over our operating expenses, resulted in a very profitable second fiscal quarter.”
