) announced today revenue for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 1997 of $5.2 million and a net loss of $822 thousand or $0.08 net loss per share, compared to revenue of $5.6 million and a net loss of $680 thousand or $0.07 net loss per share, for the comparable period in 1996.

Revenue for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 1997 was $15.3 million with a net loss of $1.7 million or $0.17 net loss per share, compared to revenue of $18.9 million and a net loss of $565 thousand or $0.06 net loss per share for the comparable period in 1996. Although partially offset by lower direct costs and administrative expenses, the Company's lower revenue, and increased spending on software product and business development efforts in technologies subsidiary, resulted in the overall loss for the quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 1997.

Contracted backlog Backlog

The total value of sales orders waiting to be fulfilled.

Notes:
This figure is used mainly in the manufacturing industry. Increases or decreases in a company's backlog indicate the future direction of sales and earnings.
 for active projects totaled an estimated $5.8 million as of Sept. 30, 1997, compared to $6.5 million as of June June: see month.  30, 1997. During the third quarter, the Company received written contracts and orders having an estimated value of $4.6 million. The contracted sales activity primarily reflects the next three months' funding at the Department of Energy's Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site ("Rocky Flats"), and an extension of a consulting contract with a large electric utility client.

The revenue decreased in the third quarter and first nine months of 1997, compared to a year ago, is primarily the result of a reduction in the Rocky Flats contract activity (due primarily to decreased funding at various DOE sites), partially offset by higher software revenue related to the National Railroad railroad or railway, form of transportation most commonly consisting of steel rails, called tracks, on which freight cars, passenger cars, and other rolling stock are drawn by one locomotive or more.  Passenger Corporation ("Amtrak Amtrak, the National Railroad Passenger Corp., authorized to operate virtually all intercity passenger railroad routes in the United States. Amtrak was created by Congress in 1970 in response to more than two decades of continuous operating deficits by privately run ") contract in the technologies subsidiary.

Direct costs were lower in the third quarter and first nine months of 1997, compared to a year ago, primarily as a result of the reduced revenue generation opportunities. General and administrative costs administrative costs,

 were lower in the third quarter and first nine months of 1997, as compared to the comparable periods in 1996, primarily reflecting lower administrative costs throughout the Company offset partially by increased sales staff and marketing expenditures in the technologies subsidiary.

These business development expenditures amounted to $347 thousand and $731 thousand in the third quarter and first nine months of 1997, respectively, compared to $88 thousand and $117 thousand for the same periods a year ago. The Company increased spending on the technologies subsidiary's software product development to $650 thousand in the third quarter, and $1.3 million in the first nine months of 1997 compared to $139 thousand and $396 thousand for the same periods a year ago.

As a part of the Company's ongoing efforts to control the significant amount of resources required by the Company's technologies subsidiary, the Board of Directors announced that, effective immediately, Michael Thomas
