K2 Design Goes Into the Black as Revenue Rises

K2 Design Inc. in New York City reported a
net profit of $37,919, including interest and other income, for the first
quarter ending March 31.

That compares with a net loss of $327,855 in the same period a year ago.
Revenues for the quarter were approximately $2.6 million, an increase of approximately $975,000, or 60%, from the first quarter of 1997.

The company’s cash position also strengthened. Cash doubled from approximately $1.7 million on September 30, 1997 to more than $3.5 million on March 31, 1998, and has increased $1.3 million from $2.2 million, or 60%, on December 31, 1997.

“We’re extremely pleased with our first quarter performance,” said Matthew de
Ganon, K2’s President. “We are particularly proud that our staff’s ability to
produce high quality work for our clients was not affected by our focus on the
company’s financial performance. We actually achieved our goal of breaking even before we had hoped.”

Robert Burke, the company’s chief operating officer, who has spearheaded the
company’s restructuring and cost-cutting plan said: “We believe that we now
have a solid foundation to grow from. Our continuing challenge is to manage
our growth in a smart and controlled fashion so that our revenues continue to
increase ahead of our expenses.”
