PINE MOUNTAIN, Ga., Aug. 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Parks! America (OTCPink:PRKA) announced today results for its third fiscal quarter and nine months ended June 28, 2015.
Third Quarter and Year-to-Date Fiscal 2015 Highlights
Total net sales for the quarter ended June 28, 2015 increased 10.5% to $1,619,751, primarily due to increased attendance. The Company’s net income for the quarter ended June 28, 2015 was $552,275, a $137,978 improvement over the comparable period in 2014, as higher interest expense partially offset higher net sales.
Total net sales for the first nine months of the 2015 fiscal year totaled $2,848,793, an increase of $265,377 or 10.3%, driven by higher attendance and higher average revenue per guest. The Company reported a net income of $200,091 for the first nine months of its 2015 fiscal year, an improvement of $270,118 over a net loss of $70,027 during the nine months ended June 29, 2014. This improvement was driven by higher net sales and lower operating costs, partially offset by higher interest expense.
“We are very pleased with our operating results through the first nine months of our 2015 fiscal year,” commented Dale Van Voorhis, Chairman & CEO. “The momentum that began in spring carried into early summer. Both of our Parks performed well and continue to deliver an outstanding wild animal safari experience to our guests.”
