During the second quarter ended Jan. 2011, the company recorded a net loss of $6.6 million, or 10 cents per share, compared to $4.3 million, or 7 cents per share, in the year-ago quarter. Production revenues were nil during the quarter. The company launched production at its Palangana ISR project during the second quarter, but did not generate any uranium sales.
On the balance sheet front, cash and cash equivalents soared 60% to $33.7 million from $21.1 million at the end of July 2010. Furthermore, as of Jan. 2011, the company had a current ratio of 16.82 compared to 4.19 as of July 2010, indicating its strong ability to meet short-term cash requirements.The boards of Uranium Energy and Concentric Energy recently approved a stock-for-stock merger.
