am pleased to report another strong fiscal year with impressive
results,� said Steven White, Chairman and CEO. �We are bearing the
fruits of our timely acquisitions completed between 2005 and 2008.
Cash flow from the acquired companies largely covered the related
acquisition debt, and we were able to accelerate payments and
eliminate all long-term debt early in calendar year 2009. In fiscal
year 2010 we recorded a 63 percent increase in income from
operations compared to the previous year, a 56 percent increase in
net income, and we more than doubled our cash position to $5.2
�Income from operations increased as a result of revenue growth and
a reduction in selling, general and administrative costs,
depreciation and amortization expense. Our increased cash position
reflects our operational income and the skillful management of our
assets by our executive and financial teams.�
�Additionally,� White continued, �we have been successful in our
efforts to increase our cash position during the last two years,
providing the company with a very stable financial platform from
which to operate. As the economic uncertainty persists we will
continue to manage our finances in a disciplined and prudent manner
while investing in our future to ensure our success.
�For our shareholders, we are pleased to have commenced a quarterly
dividend, with our first-ever dividend paid in the fourth quarter.
Also in the fourth quarter, we completed a company-wide computer
upgrade benefiting our broker network and corporate operations.�
