CEO says MSLP has a quarterly operating profit in headlines of $2.8m. Reality is that he paid consultants fees of well over $3m causing an operating loss of $700k plus. Playing games with misleading press releases is not a good idea for a public company. An operating loss is an operating loss, period.
Check out what I just found on the Internet!! (just search for "net operating loss" in "Google" or another "search engine"):
Loss resulting from a firm's primary business operations, excluding extraordinary or peripheral income (such as interest earned) and expenses (such as interest paid). Formula: (Cost of sales + Operating expenses) - Sales revenue.
