Ã‚Â Included in the fiscal fourth quarter and full year results was a $12.6 million non-recurring, non-cash charge for the impairment of goodwill, intangible, and other assets related to the Company's ColdSpark division. Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2010 Financial Highlights Consolidated Revenues $14.7 million Consolidated Net Loss $(12.2) million Storage Management Revenues $14.4 million Storage Management Operating Income $1.9 million Storage Management Bookings $13.7 million "With the closing of ColdSpark, we are fully focused on driving our storage management business. During the fourth fiscal quarter, we experienced growing demand for our NetVaultÃ‚Â® product suite, demonstrated by growth in new customers worldwide," said Steve Martin , senior vice president, Chief Financial Officer and Interim CEO, BakBone. "Our new NetVault: FASTRecover and NetVault: SmartDisk offerings have expanded the breadth of our product line, providing us with additional storage solutions to sell to our customer base. We hit our bookings target with $14.1 million for the quarter, which included approximately $375,000 for the discontinued ColdSpark business. "We took steps during the quarter to reduce personnel costs in select areas of the company to align the BakBone team to better serve the needs of our channel partners and end user customers," Mr. Martin continued. "The entire organization is now directed at driving revenues of our core backup and storage business and improving profitability from continuing operations." Fiscal Fourth Quarter Financial Results Fiscal fourth quarter 2010 revenues of $14.7 million were two percent above revenues in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009. The Company reported a net loss of $12.2 million , or $(0.14) per share, in the recent fourth quarter compared with a net loss of $0.9 million , or $(0.01) per share, in the fourth quarter last year.

We utilize bookings information as an operations measure, but it is not intended to replace U.S. GAAP accounting. Under the ratable revenue recognition method, license bookings are recognized as revenue over the appropriate period (generally three to five years). In general, variations in revenues period-over-period are affected by the amortization of current and prior period license bookings. Accordingly, we believe that trends in current and historical bookings are key factors in analyzing our operating results.
