WESTFORD, Mass., May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cynosure, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYNO) today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2011.
Revenues for the first quarter of 2011 increased 16 percent to $21.9 million from $18.9 million in the same period of 2010. Net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $1.9 million, or $0.15 per basic and diluted share, compared with a net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.22 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable period of 2010.
