Abstract: DRA and DRA President/CEO Mike Mellinger are the focus of a cover story in the June 1997 Reseller Management magazine (pages 90-94), a nationally distributed publication produced by Cahners Publishing Company. The article, entitled, "Going Public: Trading Control for Cash," features DRA as a "success story" for companies considering an initial public offering (IPO). "Tidy books, strong financials, and a top-notch underwriter helps Data Research Associates sail through its IPO and beyond," says the article. Also quoted and pictured in the article is DRA Vice President Joe Bonwich. The article notes that, since our IPO, our revenues have increased by 50 percent, our return on equity has averaged 16.5 percent and we have been listed among Forbes’ "Best 200 Small Companies in America."
