THQ Gains On UFC Title

Agoura Hills-based THQ has swung back into the black, saying Tuesday evening that it had net income of $6.4M on sales of $243.5M for its fiscal first quarter, on the strength of the firm's new UFC 2009 Undisputed title. The positive results compared with a loss of $27.2M and sales of $137.6M last year for the same quarter. The quarter, which ended June 30th, reversed a string of big losses and declines for the company over the last year, which resulted in major layoffs and studio closures at the firm in November and February.
