(OTCQB: SRER) a manufactured housing retail center owner and operator that operates its retail centers through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Wisdom Homes Of America, Inc., announces today its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.
Second Quarter 2014 Highlights
- Net income increased to $437,000, or $0.01 per share, as compared to net loss of $595,000, or a loss of $0.02 per share for 2nd quarter ending June 30, 2013, from non-cash gain of $847,000;
- $1 million finder site technology sale marks Company's exit from finder site industry;
- Completes first sales of manufactured homes from model retail centers;
- Opens third manufactured home retail center in Texas.
"We've now firmly made the transition into owning, operating and growing manufactured home retail centers. Our numbers came in favorably due to various restructuring completed in the second quarter as we entered the manufactured homes retail model space which included selling our primary finder site asset, lowering expenses and debt, and increasing our inventory. The combined total equals a material increase in shareholder equity as compared to the second quarter of 2013," said Jim Pakulis, CEO of SearchCore. "Since the second quarter ended we've signed our fourth retail center lease and have increased our inventory that has either arrived or is on order to about $1,200,000. This is up substantially from around $300,000 at the end of the second quarter. Once the inventory arrives it will give us the necessary ammunition to sell primarily from our retail models as opposed to selling the actual model homes at our centers. Separately, but related, we continue to be encouraged by the responses to our regional marketing campaigns. As we continue to receive more inventory, we'll increase our marketing which should continue to result in greater foot traffic and applications. I believe the stage is set for a productive second half of 2014."
