September 28, 2012 | Framingham, Ma

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 its fourth quarter and for the year ended June 30, 2012. 
For its fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, Rand Worldwide, Inc. reported revenues of $89.4 million, compared with $89.2 million for its prior fiscal year. The Company’s overall gross margin was 47.1%, a slight increase from the 46.7% reported for fiscal 2011, resulting in net income of $8.4 million, or $0.15 per fully diluted share. For the year ended June 30, 2011, Rand Worldwide reported net income of $1.8 million, or $0.03 per fully diluted share.
For its fourth fiscal quarter, the Company reported revenues of $22.6 million and earned net income of $5.3 million, or $0.09 per fully diluted share.   During this quarter, the Company reported gross margin of $10.7 million, or 47.4% of revenues.
Included in its fourth quarter and full year results is a $4.3 million non-recurring reduction of income tax expense resulting from the recognition of a portion of the value of the Company’s net operating loss carryforwards that are available to offset future income taxes. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, the Company reduced a valuation allowance on its books in its fourth quarter to reflect the future value of certain loss carryforwards due to the continued profitability of Rand Worldwide.
Lawrence Rychlak, president and chief financial officer, commented, “Our revenues were somewhat flat year-over-year due to the fact that last fiscal year we realized a very large non-recurring sale and also the result of turnover in our sales force in the second and third quarters of this fiscal year.   We are very pleased with the growth in our net income and earnings per share, even before the additional $4.3 million reduction of our income tax expense and we have high expectations for our fiscal year 2013 operating results.”
“These continued profitable results validate our operating plan and serve to provide a platform for the execution of our overall strategic plan,” said Marc Dulude, chief executive officer. “Since February of this year, we have completed one acquisition to augment our Autodesk focused sales in a region and another small acquisition to expand our services business. In the June fiscal quarter, we also aggressively hired new sales reps in the IMAGINiT business unit and have recognized disproportionate revenue growth in our other lines of business. Continued profitability is the engine that enables this investment in future growth.”
