Integrated Freight Posts Solid Profit and Continued Financial Improvements: Announces First Quarter FY 2014 Resultsadmin
TAMPA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / March 10, 2014/ Integrated Freight Corporation (OTCQB: IFCR), a niche motor freight carrier providing services on key routes throughout the United States, announced today its unaudited financial results for First Quarter FY 2014.
Hank Hoffman, President of Integrated Freight said, “Last year’s break-even performance was an enormous improvement over prior years’ substantial losses. We are pleased to announce that for first quarter FY 2014, our Company posted a nice profit of $165,009 or, 3.2%, and continued to strengthen its base revenue. The Integrated Freight management team committed itself to this difficult turnaround and these results demonstrate that our operations are clearly on the right track.”
IFCR’s unaudited financial statements for the first quarter of FY 2014 show revenues of $5,154,479, relatively unchanged from the previous year. However, the Company’s $165,009 of net income, its first ever profitable quarter, is a confirmation of improving operations. Additionally, the Company’s net capital deficit improved further from a $17.48 million deficit two years ago to under $6.34 million in the current period, or an increase of $11.14 million.
David N. Fuselier, IFCR’s Chairman and CEO, stated, “It is evident from these results that our corporate re-structuring strategy has significantly enhanced Integrated’s market value. Previously, our market capitalization was less than $75,000 and our enterprise value languished far below our current $16.29 million. It is now clear that Integrated Freight is the value play in the transportation industry as most of the major carriers have attained their growth targets and are maintaining operations for growth only. We believe Integrated remains under-valued when compared to its peers and we’ll seek strategic acquisitions that build on value versus growth. We think that’s attractive to our shareholders, creditors, lenders and the financial markets.”
