TAIPEI, Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

3Q Preliminary Results

  • Revenues of approximately $3.8 million, up 4 percent Q-o-Q.
  • Consolidated operating expenses of approximately $6.6 million, including a non-cash impairment of $3.1 million mainly related to a legacy game development project pursued by previous management. Excluding the non-cash impairment, consolidated operating expenses were approximately $3.4 million, up 6 percent Q-o-Q, due to increased research and development expenses, which more than offset a decrease in general and administrative expenses.
  • Net loss of approximately $3.1 million, including 1) the aforementioned non-cash impairment of $3.1 million and 2) non-operating income of $1.3 million. Excluding the non-cash impairment, net income was approximately $30 thousand.
  • Cash flow from operations was nearly neutral with a net outflow of approximately $78 thousand.
  • Cash and marketable securities-current of approximately $74.3 million, or approximately $1.46 per share, up from $73.0 million at the end of 2Q13; zero debt.
