Ocean Power Technologies to report Q4 earnings on July 22

Ocean Power Technologies (NASDAQ: OPTT) had a terrible run at the market this year, with the stock losing 74% of its value. As the company publishes its fourth-quarter and full-year financial results on Monday, July 22, after the regular trading hours, it will be hoping to reverse the trend.  

During the quarter, the ocean energy solutions firm also regained its Nasdaq compliance after it received a notice for not adhering to the minimum shareholders’ equity rule.

In the third quarter, the company had reported a wider third-quarter net loss, mainly due to higher upfront spending and material costs on new customer contracts, besides the costs associated with the development of new products.

Revenues were $0.3 million, which comprised the new contracts initiated with Eni S.p.A. and Premier Oil.

There are no analyst estimates for the current quarter.
