Revenues were $500,000 in the third quarter of 2009 compared to $800,000 in the same quarter last year.
Metalink Ltd. has had a difficult time during the recession due to a drop in orders from its customers. The company received a warning from its auditors in March 2009, expressing doubts about its ability to continue as a going concern.
Although Metalink Ltd. held cash and equivalents of $3.8 million as of September 30, 2009, the company has significant short-term debt on its balance sheet, totaling $4.3 million.
