Build a business case: developing custom apps

Graphics specialist ATI today posted its figures for the three months to 28 Feburary. The company said sales during the quarter were up 63 per cent on the same period a year ago, rising from $182 million to $297.2 million. Profits for the quarter, the second of the current fiscal year, were $39 million, up 45 per cent on Q2 1998. However, taking into account purchased in-process R&D and other charges, including the ongoing cost of ATI's purchase of sytem-on-a-chip developer Chromatic Research, the company's net income actually came to $21.7 million. But that's still way ahead of the profitability of ATI's rivals, such as nVidia. In it's most recent results, for Q4, ended 31 January, nVidia posted profits of $7.7 million on revenues of $65.5 million, though that represented in increase in sales of 178 per cent year on year. ATI's former arch-enemy, S3, lost $70.3 million on revenues of $41.5 million for its fourth quarter. ® See also nVidia revenues, profits way up S3's Q4, fiscal 98 losses widen ATI quick to Rage at WinHEC
