Gateway

(GTW)

said after the bell that its first-quarter net loss was $6 million wider than initially reported, or $172 million.

On a per-share basis, its loss increased by 2 cents to 51 cents per share.

On April 29,

the PC and consumer gadget maker reported a loss of $165 million, or 49 cents per share, according to generally accepted accounting principles.

Gateway said the wider loss is due to an increase in a reserve for a patent infringement claim "as a result of recent developments in final settlement negotiations."

When it had first reported earnings for the quarter, Gateway flagged the results as preliminary, saying the final numbers may change, pending legal developments and the finalization of tax provision numbers.

Gateway shares closed down 15 cents, or 3.5% to $4.20, in Monday trading.
