Fourth Quarter 2014 Financial Results Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2014 totaled $5.9 million compared to $6.8 million in the same quarter a year-ago.The decrease was due to lower license revenue reflecting the scheduled completion of quarterly license fee payments from The Nielsen Company in the first quarter of 2014 and lower reported royalties from another licensee, partially offset by increases in subscription and service revenue. Operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2014 totaled $4.2 million compared to an operating loss of $3.4 million in the same quarter a year-ago.The higher operating loss is largely due to lower license revenue, partially offset by lower operating expenses due to the completion of the licensing audit with Intellectual Ventures in January 2014.  Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2014 totaled $9.2 million or $(1.23) per diluted share compared to a net loss of $1.3 million or $(0.19) per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2013. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2014 included a $6.8 million noncash income tax charge to record a full valuation allowance against deferred tax assets as of December 31, 2014.Excluding this charge, net loss would have been $2.4 million or $(0.32) per diluted share. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities increased by $14.4 million, from $24.7 million at September 30, 2014 to $39.1 million at December 31, 2014.The increase reflects the sale of 684,215 shares of common stock during the quarter, which generated cash proceeds of $16.3 million, less cash used in operations of $0.8 million.
