The increase in net revenues in 2009 is a direct result of the ramp up of our business in 2009 during which sales of our vehicles and parts increased by $3,148,798 over 2008. Balqon Corporation also reported a net loss of $3,015,405 for 2009, as compared to a net loss of $7,933,281 for 2008, a 62% decrease in the net loss. The $4,917,876 reduction in net loss during 2009 is primarily due to $5,940,713 of stock-based compensation expense incurred in 2008 as compared to no stock-based compensation expense in 2009.
