(Nasdaq: IAIC - news) today reportedresults for the first quarter of fiscal 1998 ended March 31, 1998. Revenues were $4,169,000, up 167% fromthe $1,562,000 reported in 1997's first quarter. IAI reported net income of $60,000, or $0.01 per share,compared to a loss of $371,000, or $0.07 per share in 1997's first quarter. On a sequential basis, revenues improved 43% from the fourth quarter of 1997's $2,914,000, and the companyreversed a loss of $424,000, or $0.07 per share, reported in the prior quarter. 'We're very pleased by these results, and especially pleased that we achieved profitability in the quarter,' saidSandor Rosenberg, IAI's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. 'We began the quarter with six Year 2000contracts in house; we closed the quarter with 17. We are assembling a blue- chip roster of customers for ourUNICAST/2000 software tool, including Canada Life Assurance (UK), Arbitron, Gulfstream International, andthe Bureau of National Affairs. Moreover, our partnership with Computer Associates International, Inc. (CA)brought us a significant number of new orders in the quarter that just ended, plus leads which we believe wewill convert to orders as this quarter progresses.' The company reported total Year 2000 bookings in the quarter of $5.8 million, including product and factoryservices that will be performed at the company's Year 2000 International Solutions Factory in Fairfax, Virginia.This compares to product and service bookings of $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of FY1997. In addition toits own solutions factory, the company now has five solutions partners that use UNICAST/2000 for remediationof certain CA languages. These partners include CACI International, ManTech, and Software InternationalCorporation. Next several quarters will be crucial 'We believe we're successfully positioning ourselves as a provider of Year 2000 software and services,' Mr.Rosenberg said. 'However, the next few quarters will be crucial to sustaining the momentum we'veestablished. To maintain our order flow, we are dependent upon the continuing efforts of CA, and theircontinued emphasis on finding Year 2000 solutions for their customers. To that end, our highest priority mustbe to support and train CA's sales force.' Mr. Rosenberg said IAI's revenues over the next year would be driven by growth in both professional servicesand in sales of UNICAST/2000 software. 'We are aware a general perception that Year 2000 issues maysomehow be overblown, and that the market will be much smaller than previously anticipated,' Mr. Rosenbergsaid. 'After meeting with dozens of prospective customers, we do not share this pessimism. Rather, we findthat organizations are coming to terms with the absolute need for Year 2000 compliance, but are doing somethodically and with costs and resources uppermost in their minds. The ability to both provide a remediationtool and serve as an external resource to carry out that remediation is a decided plus for IAI.' Finally, Mr. Rosenberg outlined the company's plan for achieving sustained revenue growth and profitability.'During the first quarter, UNICAST/2000 for CA-ADS went from factory availability to general availability,UNICAST/2000 for CA-IDMS COBOL became factory available, and UNICAST/2000-PC for UNISYSCOBOL entered beta testing. Our goal is to quickly follow with remediation tools for other CA and non-CAlanguages, and to enhance existing software tools. On the professional services side of our business, we willstaff our Fairfax International Solutions Factory to provide quick, thorough, and accurate remediation servicesto our customers. We are currently moving toward a goal of having the capacity to remediate 400 million lines ofcode per year.'

deanfv-- I have been waiting for you to post since earnings gave iaic a great run up up of 1/8. Since my last post I found a lot of info on the silicon investor board and they convinced me to buy which I did after earnings. I have watched this stock for a year and it may make me some money but... I also noticed good earnings from chrz and it went down 4 so maybe y2 is just out of favor now.
