Managerial expertise and industry experience have helped the company to show profits every year since its inception. During the last three years, the company further entrenched its position in its market niche, which resulted in healthy financials that can be seen in Table 2.1.
Machine Tooling was founded in Kansas City in 1989 on the basis of providing quality machine tools for selected industries. The owners had worked in this field for several years and had established multiple business contacts who helped the company pick up major business accounts. By 1999, the company's revenues reached $1.5 million, and the management realized that further company growth would be difficult without securing additional working capital. To be less debt-dependent, the management has decided to go public. However, before the company issues the initial public offering (IPO), Machine Tooling currently seeks $500,000 for expansion purposes. Such expansion will improve the company's sales ability and positively affect its IPO prospects.
