SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA--(Marketwired - Aug 28, 2013) - Nesscap Energy Inc. ("Nesscap") (TSX VENTURE:NCE), a global leader in research, development and manufacturing of ultracapacitor products, reported its financial results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2013.
Revenue for the three-month period increased 42% to $4.0 million (USD), compared to $2.8 million in the same period in 2012. Revenue for the six-month period increased 27% to $7.2 million compared to $5.7 million for the same period one year ago. The increase is primarily due to stronger sales in Asia and Europe, relative to the same period in the previous year.
Net loss for the quarter was $41 thousand or $0.000 per share compared to a net loss of $0.8 million or $0.004 per share for the same period in 2012. The decrease in net loss is mainly due to an increase in gross profit and a decrease in SG&A expenses.
At June 30, 2013, the Company had cash and cash equivalents equal to $3.4 million and working capital of $17.3 million.
