The action camera maker said that for its third quarter of fiscal 2018 , it posted net losses of $27.1 million, which amounted to roughly 19 cents per share. The figure was wider than the net income the company raked in during the year-ago quarter of $14.7 million, or 10 cents per share.

When adjusting for restructuring costs and stock-based compensation and other things, GoPro's losses reached 4 cents per share. Revenue was down to $285.9 million from $329.8 million during the year-ago quarter, marking a 13% decline year-over-year.

Analysts were calling for the company to bring in adjusted losses of roughly 6 cents per share, while revenue is slated to reach $272.3 million, according to data compiled by FactSet . For the fourth quarter of its fiscal year, analysts are calling for GoPro to bring in adjusted earnings of 34 cents per share, while revenue is slated to be around $393 million.

GPRO stock was gaining about 9.3% during regular trading hours as the company geared up to report its latest quarterly earnings results. A strong earnings showing was not enough to prevent the company's shares from sliding about 7.7% after the bell Thursday on its year-over-year revenue decline.
