The US direct seller said international sales made up 18 per cent of its total $1.42 billion sales, up 24 per cent year on year. European sales alone were up 20 per cent to $177.7 million.

UK marketing manager John Shepheard said he expects Gateway to increase penetration of the "PC enthusiast" sector with the imminent release of Pentium II systems, and to make further inroads into corporates with forthcoming mobile PCs. "We've done the best job of anyone on MMX, our word of mouth is good, and all the ingredients are cooking up a pretty good meal," Shepheard said.
