18.1.2005: Meldung: SatCon 2004 Year-End Results
"To provide some perspective," continued Eisenhaure, "fiscal 2004 showed positive improvements over fiscal 2003. Our revenue increased by 27 percent from $27 million to $34 million. On an operating basis we lost $4 million for the fiscal year. In fiscal 2003 we had losses in excess of $26 million. That"s a significant improvement and one that we can credit to a substantial increase in our business and a major shrinking of our cost structure. Our backlog at year end was $24 million, the highest quarterly backlog number that we"ve had since we began reporting quarterly backlog data about 2 years ago. I believe we have laid the groundwork for significant progress in 2005. So, from an overall operating viewpoint, our costs have stabilized, and we are working to capitalize on profitable growth opportunities."
