Northwest said that it incurred a loss of C$30,695,585 or C$30.48 per share for the nine months that ended March 31, compared with a loss of C$15,825,263 or C$15.71 per share for the same period last FY.

As "an interim measure," the FY '98 operating loss "is being funded by advances" from Orca Bay Holdings (CANADIAN PRESS, 5/29).
