Today, I received an e-mail from the President of a 35+ year old reprographics company (and they are a market leader in their market), and, given what the reprographics industry has been going through the past few years, he had some outstanding news to share. (I’ve intentionally deleted his name and the company’s name. He indicated that it would be okay for me to post his comments.)
Just thought I would send you an email about our first quarter. We have yet to get the final numbers for March, but we expect the 1st quarter to be the second most profitable 1stquarter in the history of our company. Sales were not the highest, but bottom-line was very good. I contribute this to cutting expenses and a pick-up in business. Like I said, sales were not the highest, but the sales were much better than the previous three 1st quarters.
