I'm having trouble coming up with reliable numbers for
 revenue, cost of sales and net income in order to compare this quarter sequentially to the 4thQ.

According to the press releases and 10Q's, the four quarters of last year looked like this:

          1Q          2Q          3Q        4Q
Rev.     20,048     23,930      28,363    33,359
COS      10,634     11,197      12,518    15,162
N.Inc     4,636      5,784       9,155    11,357

However, in the 10K the annual numbers are:
Rev.     108,562
COS       52,362
N.Inc     30,520

Whereas the quarterly figures added together give:
Rev.     105,700
COS       49,511
N.Inc     30,932

In the 10K, I couldn't find the 4th quarter results listed separately anywhere, 
and first assumed by subtracting the other quarters that the revenue was 36,221.  
The press release at the time and that of today indicate the lower figure is correct.  
Why the disparity?

Also, in today's release, the first quarter numbers from last year are given as:
Rev.     20,861
COS      11,384
N.Inc     4,554
...all of which are again different from the 10Q. 
What gives?  Can someone shed some light on this?
Thanks in advance,
