(NASDAQ: FAIL) today reported total revenues of $16.5 million, including professional fees of $14.2 million, for the first quarter ended Aug. 28, 1992.

 Dr. Roger L. McCarthy, chairman, president and chief executive officer, observed that, "The demand for professional services in certain of our core businesses and in some key industries remains depressed. Our efforts to control operating expenses have been effective, and we are heartened that operating expenses for the recent quarter are lower than those in the same quarter of the prior year. We continue to carefully evaluate the current levels of staffing in disciplines for which a full recovery may be prolonged, and we are reducing our staff by approximately 5 percent to bring staffing into line with existing market conditions. Expenses related to the elimination of these staff positions are approximately $175,000 and have been included in the operating results of the recently completed quarter."
