Full Year Fiscal 2020 vs. Full Year Fiscal 2019
Revenue was $402.9M for fiscal 2020, contrast to $402.7M in fiscal 2019. The flat year over year performance was driven by a 3% increase in product revenue with growth in primary storage and devices and media partially offset by a decline in secondary storage systems. Strength in products was offset by modest declines in services primarily Because of reduced support renewals from our legacy backup consumers, and royalty driven by overall declines in market unit volumes as the primary use of tape transitions from backup to archive implementations.
Gross profit for fiscal 2020 was $172.5M, or 42.8% gross margin, contrast to $167.6M, or 41.6% gross margin, in fiscal 2019. Gross margins improved year over year across a wide range of products, primarily Because of reductions in cost of service and a sales mix weighted towards more profitable product lines.
Total operating expenses for fiscal 2020 were $151.3M, or 37.5% of revenue, contrast to $172.4M, or 42.8% of revenue, in fiscal 2019.

Selling, general and administrative expenses declined 15% to $114.0M for fiscal 2020 contrast to $134.7M for fiscal 2019Because of lower costs associated with the financial restatement and related activities, as well as lower operating expenses overall as a result of our efforts to streamline processes and reduce our facilities footprint.
Net loss was $5.2M, or $(0.14) per basic and diluted share, contrast to a net loss of $(42.8)M, or $(1.20) per basic and diluted share. Not Including non-recurring charges, stock compensation and restructuring charges, Adjusted Net Income was $15.4M, or $0.34 per diluted share for fiscal 2020, contrast to $4.8M, or $0.12 per diluted share, in fiscal 2019.
