For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, Rand Worldwide, Inc. reported revenues of $21.6 million, compared with $21.9 million for the same quarter in the prior fiscal year.

Lawrence Rychlak, president and chief financial officer at Rand Worldwide, commented, "In this quarter, we were able to increase our net income by 43% from the levels we reported in the same quarter last year due to a positive revenue mix which helped to drive higher overall gross margins.  In addition, we continue to generate good levels of cash flow which supported a significant investment in our IT infrastructure and the acquisition of a specialty computer-aided engineering consulting company that we closed in July of this year."   

Marc Dulude, chief executive officer of Rand Worldwide, noted that, "The investments we have made in our various sales forces are beginning to add the capacity we intended and we noted that our archiving business was especially productive this quarter as sales of our Rand Secure Archive product suite continue to grow significantly.  These returns on investments made over the past year are gratifying to us as a company."
