"We are proud of our five-fold revenue growth in fiscal 2000, but more importantly, Q4 marks the start of an important strategic transition for us," stated Royal P. Farros, Chairman and CEO of iPrint. "E-procurement exploded in corporate America during 2000 and we believe there is significant demand for integrated, enterprise-wide e-printing solutions that leverage the large investments corporations have made in this area."
Farros continued, "As the technology leader in the e-printing space--and because of this rapid e-procurement adoption--we are seeing corporate opportunities that were non-existent in 2000. As a result, we are focusing our sales and development resources towards growing our corporate presence and will be investing less in our traditional SOHO and consumer areas. While we saw a revenue shortfall during this transition period, we are pleased that we saw better-than-expected EPS and gross margins, and we are especially pleased with our significantly reduced cash burn."
Cash, short-term investments, and short-term restricted cash totaled $27.5 million as of December 31, 2000 (with a quarterly cash burn of $4.7 million), compared to $32.2 million (with a quarterly cash burn of $6.9 million) as of September 30, 2000. As of December 31, 2000, there were approximately 30.0 million shares of common stock outstanding.
