Roger G. Little, president and CEO of Spire Corporation, commented, “During this quarter, we continued to transition out of our optoelectronics research and development contract activities. We solidified both our solar and biomedical commercial businesses and are now investing in the future. While sales increased a modest 4 percent for the quarter and 15 percent year-to-date compared to last year, our sales mix has changed and our cost structure has been greatly reduced. This has resulted in a significant reduction in losses compared to a year ago."
