RealD, which licenses 3D technologies, announced that its revenue for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year was $58.5m, an increase of 6% versus the same period a year ago. The company posted GAAP net income of $4.5m in the quarter, versus a GAAP loss of $20.9m during the same period a year ago.

For the full fiscal year, the company had revenue of $246.1m, an increase of 64% versus the previous year.  Net loss for the year was $12.3m, versus a loss of $51.2m the previous year.

Despite RealD’s increasing revenue and profitability, investors sold off the stock on fears that 3D may not have the market traction that had been anticipated previously.  According to a Bloomberg article, shares in RealD fell the most since its initial public offering after analysts questioned executives about the appeal of the 3D format.
