GAAP net loss was approximately $1.3 million, or ($0.07), per diluted share, compared with a GAAP net income of $1.9 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the prior year quarter. The prior year quarter’s GAAP net income included a $2.9 million gain on the reduction of contingent obligations. After adjusting for certain cash and non-cash items, non-GAAP net income for the quarters ended June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2019, was approximately $1.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share and approximately $1.0 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, respectively.  Adjusted EBITDA was approximately $1.7 million and $1.6 million for the current quarter and the prior year quarter, respectively.
