Lion Considers Withdrawing from Nasdaq; Reports Sharp Drop in Revenues for Q4 of FY03/04

NEW YORK, June 23 (GenomeWeb News) - Lion Bioscience considers withdrawing from Nasdaq after reporting sharply dropped revenues and narrowed losses for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2003/2004 today, which ended March 31.

 

The company recorded €3.3 million ($4 million) in revenues for the quarter, down from €9 million ($10.9 million) during the same period last year. This is slightly more than the €3.1 million the company had reported as preliminary revenues in May.

 

Lion's net loss amounted to €3.5 million, down from €18.5 million during the year-ago period.

 

As of March 31, Lion had €43.1 million in cash or cash equivalents.
