For the quarter ending December 31, 2009, the Company reported a net loss available to common stockholders of $9.9 million or $1.98 per basic and diluted share. This represents an increase of $8.3 million as compared with the Companys net loss of $1.6 million or $0.32 per basic and diluted share reported during the same period in 2008.

For the year ending December 31, 2009, the Company reported a net loss available to common shareholders of $19.6 million or $3.91 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $207 thousand or $0.04 per basic and diluted share for the year ending December 31, 2008.
