  • Net loss of $156 or ($0.08) per basic and diluted share vs. net income of $141 or $0.07 per basic and diluted share

“We are disappointed with our quarterly results, especially with our power supply subsidiary, which experienced a 45% decline in revenues year over year. We are also experiencing a slowdown of business activity in the current environment. A majority of N2 Power revenue is derived from the gaming industry, which is currently at a standstill with COVID – 19. We have taken aggressive measures to reduce our overall cost structure,” said Steven N. Bronson, CEO and President of Qualstar.
