Netopia sold its LAN unit in August 1998 to focus on its core internet/intranet technologies. Revenues are adjusted below to reflect past performance in the ongoing business to get a feel for where this company was and is:

Quarter ended Revenues
12/1996 $4,805,000
03/1997 $4,654,000
06/1997 $5,054,000
09/1997 $5,657,000
12/1997 $5,463,000
03/1998 $6,252,000
06/1998 $6,766,000
09/1998 $6,355,000
12/1998 $7,923,000
03/1999 $10,500,000

Can you guess when the company shed the LAN unit? Hence the moves in the stock price recently. Incidentally, the stock is trading at all-time highs in the last month or two. Since focusing on the internet/intranet end of business, the revenues have begun to accelerate in this space.

The fastest growing parts of the business are the DSL hardware business and the Web-platform business. Right now, the Virtual Office business is about 50% of the revenue, while 35% is coming from the hardware business.
