The loss was an improvement over the previous quarter’s $8.3 million. The net loss in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $2.8 million.

Revenue in the second quarter of 2015 was $42.9 million, compared to $35.0 million in the first quarter and $59.6 million in the second quarter of the previous fiscal year.
