DayStar Technologies, Inc., a developer of solar photovoltaic products based on CIGS thin-film deposition technology, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2009.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $4.6 million or $0.14 per share, compared with a net loss of $7.8 million or $0.23 per share in the fourth quarter of 2008. Net loss for the full year ended December 31, 2009 was $25.0 million or $0.75 per share, compared with a net loss of $26.3 million or $0.79 per share in 2008. The lower net loss reflects the implementation of cost savings measures including a reduction in workforce in order to focus our resources on the development of our core CIGS technology while we continue fundraising efforts to built-out our initial production line. The loss on sale also reflects also reflects the decrease in payroll and research and development expenses resulting from the sale of our Halfmoon, NY operations earlier in the year. The per share losses were calculated on the weighted average common shares outstanding of 33.8 and 33.5 million for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2009, respectively, compared with 33.4 and 33.2 million for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2008, respectively.
