Berkeley Technology

3rd Quarter Results

RNS Number : 4505C
Berkeley Technology Limited
13 November 2009
 



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 13, 2009




Berkeley Technology Limited


Financial Results

For the Three and Nine Months Ended

September 30, 2009



LondonNovember 13, 2009 - Berkeley Technology Limited (OTCBB: BKLYY.PK, London: BEK.L) (the "Company") is an international venture capital consulting firm with a focus on Silicon Valley technology companies.


The Company today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009. The Company's consolidated net loss for the third quarter of 2009 was $0.5 million, or $0.01 per diluted share and $0.09 per diluted ADR, compared with a consolidated net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.02 per diluted share and $0.20 per diluted ADR, for the third quarter of 2008. The Company computes and reports consolidated net income (loss) and diluted earnings (loss) per share and ADR in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP").


For the nine months ended September 30, 2009, the Company's consolidated net loss was $2.2 million, or $0.04 per diluted share and $0.43 per diluted ADR, compared with a consolidated net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.04 per diluted share and $0.41 per diluted ADR, for the first nine months of 2008.  


The improvement in results for the third quarter of 2009 compared to the third quarter of 2008 resulted from a $0.4 million decrease in operating expenses, primarily in staff costs, and a $0.2 million change in realized investment gains and losses. The results for the third quarter of 2008 included an other-than-temporary write-down taken on one of the Group's private equity investments, and there were no investment gains or losses in the third quarter of 2009.


 We continue to make progress in holding operating expenses down.  The results for the first nine months of 2009 includes a $0.4 million decrease in operating expenses, primarily in staff costs, though this was offset by a $0.2 million decline in interest income due to the lower interest rate environment, and by a $0.2 million change in realized investment gains and losses. During the first nine months of 2009, an other-than-temporary write-down of $0.2 million was taken on one of the Group's private equity investments. During the first nine months of 2008, an other-than temporary write-down of $0.25 million was taken on this private equity investment, but this was more than offset by a $0.27 million realized gain due to the receipt of a final distribution from the WorldCom, Inc. securities litigation.

 

We earned consulting fees of $0.4 million during the first nine months of 2009 which was comparable to the fees earned in the same period last year.   


In certain of our consulting arrangements, we may benefit from investments made by our clients if their investments are successful. Given the challenges we face in the current economic environment, the level of consulting fees is expected to fluctuate depending on the nature and extent of our work at any point in time. We continue to actively seek new clients and business opportunities.
