In the first quarter, Catalyst earned $371,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, on revenues of $10.5 million.

As of July 31, Catalyst had cash and cash equivalents of $28.5 million, a decrease of $2.0 million versus the previous quarter, which primarily reflects the payoff of the remaining $2.0 million balance of a bank loan. Catalyst is now free of any bank debt. Stockholders' equity increased by $452,000 during the quarter, to a total of $39.6 million as of July 31, 2001.
"Continuing pressure on first-quarter bookings and prices indicates that we continue to see the same business slowdown that virtually all technology companies have been facing," said Radu Vanco, chairman and CEO.
