Great news from Spacedev!

Best Quarter ever

I am very pleased to announce that SpaceDev has recorded its  best quarter ever - an operating profit of $30,000 compared to a  loss of $3.0 million for the same period last year. We generated  $420,000 in cash from operating activities versus $473,000 cash  used in operating activities in the first nine months of 1999. Our  sales for the first nine months have been $3.1 million, another  record.  Our current stock price (SPDV) is about $1.00.
