Subject:  what ya think about this company? Date:  6/17/1998  10:33 PM

OK, I'll be the first one to say sales of this company went up 24.19%. So it's not 25%, big deal, it's close enough to be considered a good stock to look into. Two so-so things stand out about this company 1) accounts payable increased 37% to 1,002 which also gives a 1:15 pay to receivables ratio ;2) Foolish flow ratio 3.56, high, definately but it's a small cap, so how high is high? Bad news, accounts receivable increased 57% to 15,826. Now this company does alot of oversea deals, about 75% of their business is overseas, so I would expect them to have some difficulty with what's going on in Asia. But they are also expanding in Easten Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. Any thoughts at all would (or could) help. Thanks.
