Hypercom Posts 4Q/09 Revenue of $117.4MM, up 16.0% Q/Q

Hypercom terminal manufacturer has reported net revenue for 4Q/09 up 16.0% to $117.4mm, compared to $101.2mm posted for 3Q/09 thanks to higher product shipments in Northern and Southern European markets. Net revenue was down, however, 2.6% compared to $120.5 mm in 4Q/08 thanks to lower revenue from the Americas. Gross profit for the quarter was $38.1 mm, up from $34.0mm in 3Q/09 and from $33.2mm since the year ago period. Meanwhile, net income for the 3Q/09 was $0.6mm, compared to $1.2mm the previous quarter and a loss of $74.8mm in 4Q/08.
