Jones Soda’s loss narrowed to $399,000 for the first quarter, ended March 31, compared with $1.7 million a year earlier.
The improvement came despite a 20 percent drop in revenue, to $3.1 million.
The revenue decline was a result of “management’s strategy to reallocate resources from certain markets while focusing on key core markets, particularly during the upcoming busier summer selling season,” the company said in a news release.
It cut overhead almost in half, to $675,000 for the quarter.
