Liquidmetal ® Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: LQMT ) today announced its financial results for the three months ended and year ended December 31, 2011.

Furthermore, the Company closed out the fourth quarter with an operating loss of $1.7 million and $6.5 million for the year end.

Mr. Tom Steipp, President and CEO, commented, “Liquidmetal Technologies has reached an important milestone enabling it to realize the benefits of its partner relationships.

Looking forward, we will be working with our partners to scale up these production capabilities while engaging with customers in aerospace, medical, sporting goods and other industries.”
