- Almost half, 46 percent, said their business’ revenue increased a little or a lot over the past 12 months, nearly the same as in February when it was 45 percent.
- Six in 10, or 63 percent, said that their cash flow was very or somewhat good over the past 12 months, down one point from 64 percent in February.
- Thirty-nine percent said that credit was somewhat or easy to obtain over the past 12 months, about the same as February when it was 40 percent.
