Financial Results

Revenue

Total revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, increased 19% to $3.8 million, compared to $3.2 million during the same quarter in 2011. This increase included a $160,326 or 7% increase in revenue generated by our Income Properties.

The significant growth in revenues during the nine-month period in 2012 reflects approximately $520,000 or nearly 8% in revenue growth from our income properties, with $618,000 in revenue from our first land sale in three years, and continued revenues generated by our subsurface leasing agreements.

Net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $556,606, an improvement of 87% compared to a loss of $4,217,992 during the same quarter in 2011.

Our general and administrative costs increased 52% or $636,372 due to a legal reserve of $611,691 and a one-time separation payment to a retiring senior executive of $145,000.

CEO Comments on Operating Results

John P. Albright, president and chief executive officer, stated, "We are encouraged by our continual improvement in our operations during the quarter and the addition of an income asset to our portfolio." Mr. Albright further noted, "Although we experienced a net loss in the quarter, which resulted from a legal reserve recorded in connection with litigation commenced in 2010, non-cash stock compensation expenses for equity award grants to our recently hired senior executive team and a non-recurring expense related to separation costs for a retiring senior executive, we remain cash flow positive."
