Sun Microsystems Inc. has reported a $147 million loss for the April-June quarter.  This is likely the last quarter that the company will have before being absorbed by Oracle.  Oracle agreed to buy out Sun for $7.4 billion back in April, but the deal is pending approval from European antitrust regulators.

The numbers were reported on a regulatory filing but there wasn’t a news release or conference call.  Sun Microsystems invented the JAVA programming language which is a key component for the web, PC applications, and mobile applications.

About a year ago during the same quarter, Sun had a profit of $88 million.  Revenues for this past quarter was $2.63 billion.  The year before, sales were $3.78 billion.  Thomson Reuters analysts expected revenues to be $2.37 billion for the quarter.
