Comarco Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

LAKE FOREST, Calif., Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Comarco, Inc. (OTC: CMRO.PK), today announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 ended October 31, 2012.  The Company also filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 with the Securities and Exchange Commission today.

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $1.1 million compared to $2.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. For the quarter, the Company reported a net loss of $2.2 million, or $0.29 per share, which compares to a net loss of $0.8 million, or $(0.10) per share, for the third quarter of the prior fiscal year. The net loss for the quarter included non-cash expenses of $0.9 million related to our previously announced bridge loan. Additionally, the net loss for the quarter includes increased selling, general and administrative expenses and engineering and support expenses of $0.3 million and $0.1 million, respectively, compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The increases in selling, general and administrative expenses and engineering and support expenses are related principally to legal expenses associated with our ongoing litigation.

For the nine months ended October 31, 2012, revenue totaled $5.0 million compared with $7.1 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The net loss for the nine months ended October 31, 2012 was $2.8 million, or $(0.37) per share, compared with a net loss of $3.9 million, or $(0.54) per share, in the comparable period for the prior year. The year to date net loss was significantly and positively impacted by the previously announced settlement with a former supplier.  Additionally, the year to date net loss includes increased selling, general and administrative expenses of $0.3 million and engineering and support expenses of $0.8 million, respectively, compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year.  The increases in selling, general and administrative expenses and engineering and support expenses are related principally to legal expenses associated with our ongoing litigation.

Additionally, as previously announced, subsequent to the third quarter, the Company was awarded a new patent, bringing the total number of patents in its domestic portfolio to 46.
