ENGINEERING.com revenue was $1,444,768 for the fiscal year 2008, compared to revenue of $2,214,221 for the year 2007. Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2008 was $340,828 compared to $572,273 for the fourth quarter of 2007.

During 2007, the Company had revenues of $1,080,665 from the provision of services to Rand Worldwide, a former related party while corresponding revenues for 2008 declined to $279,305. All such transactions were terminated in September 2008 when Rand Worldwide ceased to be a related party to the Company.

Operating loss (EBITDA) measured as earnings before interest, taxes, amortization and stock-based compensation, was ($93,830) or $0.00 per Common Share for the fourth quarter of 2008 compared with a operating profit of $49,036 or $0.00 per Common Share for the three month period ended December 31, 2007.

"During 2008 the company's primary web site experienced a significant increase in page views and corresponding Internet advertising revenue," said John Hayes, President of ENGINEERING.com.
