Revenue for the year increased by $10.6 million, or 34 percent, to a record level of $41.7 million versus $31.1 million for fiscal year 2000. Fiscal year 2001 represented the second consecutive year of record revenue growth for the company with revenue having grown at a compound annual rate of 64 percent since fiscal year 1999.

We expect this growth to continue in 2002 as the economy improves and we expand our market penetration with existing products and the introduction of new products such as our StarSine MegaPower UPS system."
