SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/16/11 -- AltiGen Communications, Inc. (OTCQX: ATGN) (PINKSHEETS: ATGN), the leading provider of integrated Microsoft-based Unified Communications solutions, announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2011.

Fiscal Year 2011 Fourth Quarter Performance
Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011 was $4.3 million, in comparison to $3.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010, an increase of 13.2%. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, net loss from operations was $861,000, or a loss of $0.05 per share, compared to a net loss of $638,000, or a loss of $0.04 per share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010.

Operating expenses were $3.7 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011, an increase of 12.1% from $3.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010. This increase was primarily attributable to increased research and development expenses. R&D expenditures increased 33% to $1.6 million in fiscal 2011, compared to $1.2 million, for fiscal 2010. These increases were driven almost entirely by increased costs to support new product development initiatives.

Operating expenses were $14.4 million for fiscal year 2011, an increase of 11.6% from fiscal year 2010. This increase was primarily attributable to increased research and development expenses. R&D expenditures increased 35% to $6.2 million in fiscal 2011, compared to $4.6 million, for fiscal 2010. These increases were driven almost entirely by increased costs to support new product development initiatives.
