Net loss for the third quarter of 2015 was approximately USD4.2 million as compared to a restated loss of approximately USD5.2 million reported in the third quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA* loss was approximately USD1.2 million for the third quarter of 2015 as compared to approximately a restated USD1.4 million profit in the same quarter of the prior year.
