BTG revenue on the rise

Continued growth in BTG Inc.'s information and technical services business helped the Fairfax, Va.-based company report net income of $965,000 on revenue of $66 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2000. BTG's unaudited results showed a 22 percent increase in revenue from information and technical services to a total of $8.9 million during the quarter, according to the company. BTG had income of $82,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 1999 on revenue of $84 million. The decline in first quarter revenue reported this year resulted from a continued decline in product sales after BTG's divestiture of its product reselling division in February 1998.
