SCO's 4Q and Fiscal 2005 Results: Down, down, down they go...
Thursday, December 22 2005 @ 05:02 PM EST

SCO's financial results are now out. Here is the press release, and the highlights are:
Revenue for the three months ended October 31, 2005 was $8,528,000 as compared to $10,075,000 for the comparable quarter of the prior year. This decrease in revenue was primarily due to a decrease in UNIX revenue as a result of continued competitive pressure on the Company's UNIX products and services.

The net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended October 31, 2005 was $(3,431,000), or $(0.19) per diluted common share, as compared to a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(6,516,000), or $(0.37) per diluted common share for the comparable quarter of the prior year. Included in the net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended October 31, 2004 was $2,702,000 for restructuring charges and losses on dispositions of long-lived assets.

"Even though the Company incurred net losses during the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2005 as a result of expenditures for its continuing litigation, the management team accomplished its objective of returning the UNIX business to profitability and generating positive cash flow during fiscal year 2005," said Darl McBride, President and CEO of The SCO Group. "While we will continue to focus resources on our UNIX business and expect this business to generate positive cash flow again in fiscal year 2006, we are excited about the prospects of our recently announced Me Inc. technology platform for smart handheld devices. Additionally, with the closing of our $10 million private placement in November 2005, we are confident that we will be able to execute on our business strategies and see our litigation through to its conclusion."

The stock, of course, was up today.

SCO has also now filed its Form S-1, which says in red letters that it is not complete and is subject to change, and the Common Stock Purchase Agreement regarding the recent cash transfusion.

Here are details from the press release about the financials:
