Second Quarter Results
Rubber Blog Pharmaceuticals and Model Train Figurines [RBPMTF, 100% Blue Agave] today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2005, ended March 31, 2005. RBPMTF reported a net loss of $15.1 million, or $0.14 per share, compared to $6.9 million, or $0.09 per share, for the same period a year ago. (Friggin' ATM fees.) Contributing to the loss in the second quarter were the Company's expenditures related to ongoing clinical development programs and a $7.2 million charge for all that taffy we bought.
Total operating expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2005 were $14.8 million, compared to $7.6 million in the same period a year ago. (Look, green fees ain't cheap.) Expenditures on research and development and tanning and cauliflower (R&D & T&C) programs accounted for 77% and 71% of total operating expenses for the quarters ended March 31, 2005 and 2004, respectively. R&D & T&C expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2005 amounted to $11.4 million, compared to $5.4 million for the same period a year ago. (Perhaps we should switch to broccoli.) This increase in R&D & T&C spending was principally attributable to the $5.6 million charge for the acquisition of additional rights to camp out near that old Drive-In, which was partially offset by lower expenditures as the Company completed its development work for new speakers in the basement (full surround sound capability pending).
