Wireless Ronin Reports 2006 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results
MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 16, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Wireless Ronin Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:RNIN) today announced its financial results for the 2006 fourth quarter and full year. The company reported revenue of $1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2006, in comparison to $0.2 million during the fourth quarter of 2005, a net loss of $8.5 million compared to a net loss of $1.5 million last year, and a basic and diluted loss per share of $2.33 compared to $1.98 last year. The increase in net loss for the 2006 fourth quarter was primarily attributable to increased operating costs as well as higher interest expense. The greater amount of interest expense was due to higher debt levels, the early retirement of long- and short-term debt and the recording of additional beneficial conversion during the period. The majority of the interest expense was non-cash. The increase in basic and diluted loss per share was primarily due to the increase in interest expense and operating costs, reduced by the increase in shares outstanding. Fourth-quarter results also include costs of approximately $166,000 after-tax, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share, of non-cash stock option expense related to FAS123R. The company adopted FAS123R for reporting purposes in the first quarter of 2006.
