Decreased revenues of $1,207,000 or 5% is due in part from a 7% decrease in fleet and available rental nights resulting in a 7% decrease in booked rental nights. The decrease in revenues combined with the $49,000 increase in direct expenses resulted in the gross margin decrease of $1.3 million or 12%.
Investment in rental fleet was $18 million at April 30, 2010, a decrease $6.8 million from April 30, 2099. The investment in fleet inventory available for sale was $5.2 million at April 30, 2010 an increase of $2.6 million from April 30, 2009 year-end levels.
Fleet, capital asset and other financing decreased $4.1 million, or 18%, to $18 million from the April 30, 2009 balance of $22 million.
The Company’s short-term liquidity position (cash and cash equivalents plus accounts receivable and short term deposits, minus accounts payable and accrued liabilities) stands at $760,000 compared to $(1.8 million) at April 30, 2009.
It should be noted that the Company’s core business, rental of recreational vehicles, is seasonal in nature with the majority of its revenue being earned during the May to October period, its first and second quarters. The majority of the company’s direct expenses are incurred in that same period. The Company markets rental units and fleet inventory available for sale on a continuous basis throughout the year, however sales of such units are generally strongest in the spring and early summer. As a result of ongoing interest, amortization and adjustments and selling, general and administrative expenses, the last two quarters of the fiscal year normally produce operating losses. Losses incurred in the last two quarters may exceed profits earned in the first two quarters of the fiscal year.
The financial data included in this release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), except for the term cash flow from operations per share. Cash flow per share is a measure that provides shareholders and potential investors with additional information regarding the Company’s liquidity and its ability to generate funds to finance its operations.
