DayStar Technologies Announces 2010 First Quarter Financial Results

Newark, California (EastBayDaily) — DayStar Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: DSTID), a developer of solar photovoltaic products based on CIGS thin-film deposition technology, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2010.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2010 was $6.1 million or $1.61 per share, compared with a net loss of $7.7 million or $2.06 per share in the first quarter of 2009. The lower net loss reflects the implementation of cost savings measures including a reduction in workforce in order to focus our resources on the development of our core CIGS technology while we continue fundraising efforts to complete our initial production line. The per share losses were calculated on the weighted average common shares outstanding of 3.8 and 3.7 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively. The average shares outstanding and loss per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 and 2009 reflect the 1-for-9 reverse stock split implemented by DayStar on May 11, 2010. DayStar’s common stock began trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market on a split adjusted basis on March 12, 2010.

The balance sheet, as of March 31, 2010, and the statement of operations for the three months ending March 31, 2010, are attached as exhibits to this press release.
