The focus on technology and operations is beginning to yield measurable and tangible results. We believe that these trends will continue thru the remainder of 2013, positioning the company for a stable operating environment in 2014,” stated John O’Rourke, Lime’s Chief Executive Officer.

  • The loss from continuing operations increased $536 thousand, or 15.8%, including the one-time charges related to the restatement and ongoing lawsuits. Adjusting for the $1.3 million of one-time charges, the loss declined $742 thousand or 21.9%, to $2.7 million.*
  • The loss from discontinued operations increased $2.0 million to $2.8 million;
