In his first full year of business following the development, he sold 50,000 copies at $109 each. The direct cost of packaging, and fulfilling orders for the software was $34 per unit.

The largest expense was servicing customers following sales. The following costs were incurred including all equipment which will be replaced annually.
Software Maintenance $300,000
Customer Service $200,000
Marketing & Sales $350,000
Gill and his immediate staff were paid $500,000. Financing was by an Angel investor who received a 35% ownership and one loan of $250,000. Interest only at 8.3% is paid annually on the loan.
