Comarco Reports Fiscal 2013 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results

LAKE FOREST, Calif., April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Comarco, Inc. (OTC: CMRO.PK), today announced its financial results for the fourth fiscal quarter and full fiscal year ended January 31, 2013. The Company also filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal year 2013 with the Securities and Exchange Commission today.

Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was $1.3 million compared to $0.9 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. For the quarter, the Company reported a net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.37 per share, which compares to a net loss of $1.4 million, or $(0.18) per share, for the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year. The net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 included combined non-cash expenses of $1.6 million related to the valuation of the warrants issued in conjunction with our former bridge loan which was repaid subsequent to our fiscal year end with combined proceeds received from a previously announced secured loan agreement and stock purchase agreement.

For year ended January 31, 2013, revenue totaled $6.3 million compared with $8.1 million for the prior fiscal year. The net loss for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2013 was $5.6 million, or $(0.74) per share, compared with a net loss of $5.3 million, or $(0.72) per share, for the prior fiscal year. The fiscal 2013 net loss was significantly and positively impacted in the amount of $1.4 million by the previously announced settlement with a former supplier and negatively impacted in the amount of $2.5 million by the valuation of the warrants. Additionally, the year to date net loss includes increased engineering and support expenses of $0.5 million, compared to prior fiscal year. The increase in engineering and support expenses are related principally to increased legal expenses associated with our ongoing litigation in the amount of $0.9 million offset by reductions in personnel and related expenses of $0.3 million as well as reduced rent expense of $0.1 million.
