Gendis Inc. Announces Third Quarter Profit

15:21 EST Monday, December 09, 2013

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwired - Dec. 9, 2013) - Gendis Inc. (TSX:GDS) today announced its financial results for the 3rd quarter ended October 31, 2013.

Revenue for the 3rd quarter was $1,500,000 compared to $1,431,000 for last year's 3rd quarter. Revenue less expense for the 3rd quarter was $756,000 compared to $730,000 for last year's 3rd quarter. Net earnings for the 3rd quarter were $1,347,000 ($0.10 per share) compared to a loss of $791,000 ($0.06 per share) for last year's 3rd quarter.

Revenue year-to-date was $4,560,000 compared to $4,471,000 year-to-date last year. Revenue less expense year-to-date was $2,038,000 compared to $1,718,000 year-to-date last year. Net loss year-to-date was $548,000 ($0.04 per share) compared to a loss of $8,300,000 ($0.60 per share) year-to-date last year.

The volatility in net earnings quarter over quarter and year over year is primarily due to the change in fair value of equity investments and investment properties with the attendant effect on deferred income taxes. Also, the 2nd quarter last year included the settlement with our insurer on legal claims in a prior year.

Condensed summarized information is as follows:
