Avatech Solutions Issues Proforma Financial Information Following Its Merger With PlanetCAD

OWINGS MILLS, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 31, 2003--Avatech Solutions (OTCBB: AVSO.OB), a leading provider of design automation and quality assurance solutions for the manufacturing, building design, civil engineering and GIS markets, today filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission its Form 8-K containing proforma financial statements (unaudited) reflecting combined information following the recent completion of its merger with PlanetCAD Inc.

Included in the filing are a combined condensed balance sheet and statement of operations covering the quarter ended September 30, 2002 and a statement of operations for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the most recent applicable periods for regulatory reporting under SEC rules.

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the company reported total revenue of $31.6 million on a combined proforma basis, resulting in a net loss of $7.8 million or $2.63 per common share.

For the three months ended September 30, 2002, total revenue amounted to $6.2 million on a proforma basis, resulting in a net loss of $0.2 million or $.08 per share.

"Since our completed merger with PlanetCAD Inc. less than three months ago, we are satisfied with the progress we have made in combining both companies' operations and in the creation of new revenue opportunities, but we are certainly not yet at a stage where we are able to report the real synergies and financial benefits of the combination," said Donald R. "Scotty" Walsh, CEO of the company, who was appointed to that role December 4, 2002.

Walsh is a 38-year veteran in the high technology sector who will be responsible for the accelerated development of Avatech Solutions through implementing new business strategies and practices.

"We have embarked on a revised business strategy to increase revenue and profitability through investments in people, products and geography, which we expect to elaborate in further announcements in the near future," said Walsh.
