RWD Technologies Inc., a Columbia technology consulting and electronic learning company, will save at least $1 million a year by going private, officials said yesterday. The responsibilities of being a public company have an onerous cost, and the decision to go private is essentially a cost-saving measure, said Beth Marie Buck, chief financial officer and vice president at RWD Technologies. "For a company our size we're currently spending around a million dollars to be public," Buck said, adding that the cost would only go up. Founded in 1988, RWD Technologies went public in 1997 and has been struggling to regain profitability during the economic downturn.
