February 1, 1989


By CBR Staff Writer

DEC’s little offspring, Data General Corp, over in Westborough, Massachusetts, would like to have DEC’s problems. President Edson DeCastro told the minimaker’s annual meeting that the company’s goal of profitability for fiscal 1989 ending Sept. 30, is still achievable, but is more difficult to make than expected. DeCastro said that because of the previously reported weak sales and loss in the first quarter to December 31, Data General product sales for the full year may not even reach 1988 levels. The first quarter sales decline was down to customers waiting for the MV/40000, which didn’t start shipping until late in the period. DeCastro said that demand for MV/40000s is strong, and the company expects to recover far more sales than we lost, but won’t make them all back this year.
