Comarco to Charge Severance Costs

August 03, 2000|Dow Jones

Comarco Inc. said Wednesday it plans to take a charge of 15 to 20 cents a share for the second quarter ended July 31 for severance costs associated with the disposal of discontinued operations.

Last year, the company posted second quarter earnings of about $1.01 million, or 21 cents a share.

The Irvine company is selling off non-core businesses to focus on wireless communications products and services. In the second quarter, Comarco closed two sales to dispose of its defense-related businesses for about $10.9 million, including $5.3 million in cash.

The company, however, was liable for severance costs related to outgoing corporate staff.

Comarco's stock fell $2.50 to $30 a share in Nasdaq trading.
