  • Gross profit totaled $4.8 million vs. $3.6 million in the fourth quarter, a 31% increase due to an accounting provision regarding how rent and expenses have been reclassified.
  • Net loss totaled ($4.6 million) or ($.23) per diluted share vs. ($3.7 million) or ($.16) per diluted share in the fourth quarter, due to anticipated severance, relocation, and European currency charges the company recorded.
