"During 2007 the company experienced revenue growth in our software business and began to drive revenue in Internet advertising. These reported revenue gains were made against the headwind of a declining currency in the United States, our largest market," said John Hayes, President of ENGINEERING.com. "Revenue gains in software and advertising were largely offset by a decline in the IT services we provided to RAND Worldwide, a related company."
