SAS just reported record revenues of US$2.26 billion in 2008. This is a 5.1 percent increase in revenues over 2007. This is happy news at JMP, which is a business unit of SAS.
Here's what CEO Jim Goodnight had to say about these financial results: “We achieved our 33rd year of revenue growth in the worst economy most can remember. This growth is a direct result of being a stable privately held company, which allows us to invest in long-term relationships with employees and customers.”
