Patriot Transportation Holding, Inc. Announces Results For The First Quarter Of Fiscal Year 2010

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Patriot Transportation Holding, Inc. (Nasdaq: PATR) reported income from continuing operations of $1,312,000 or $.42 per diluted share in the first quarter of fiscal 2010, a decrease of 32.5% compared to $1,943,000 or $.63 per diluted share in the same period last year.  

Transportation segment results were lower due to reduced miles driven and lower fuel surcharges.  The real estate segment's results were impacted by lower royalty revenues and lower developed property occupancy.  

First Quarter Operating Results.  For the first quarter of fiscal 2010, consolidated revenues were $27,500,000, a decrease of $3,344,000 or 10.8% over the same quarter last year.

Transportation segment revenues were $22,081,000 in the first quarter of 2010, a decrease of $2,901,000 over the same quarter last year.  Revenue miles were down 9.2% compared to the first quarter of 2009 due to lower demand and a competitive climate.  Fuel surcharge revenue decreased $1,355,000.  Excluding fuel surcharges, revenue per mile increased 2.1% over the same quarter last year.  The average price paid per gallon of diesel fuel decreased by $.15 or 5.6% over the same quarter in fiscal 2009.

Real Estate segment revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 were $5,419,000, a decrease of $443,000 or 7.6% over the same quarter last year.  Lease revenue from developed properties decreased $143,000 or 3.4% due to reduced occupancy.  Royalties and rent decreased $300,000 or 18.3% due to decreased demand for mined tons and a $161,000 decrease in revenues from timber sales.

Consolidated gross profit was $6,092,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2010, a decrease of $1,232,000 or 16.8% compared to $7,324,000 in the same period last year.  Gross profit in the transportation segment decreased $788,000 or 17.0% due to reduced miles driven and lower fuel surcharges.  Gross profit in the real estate segment decreased $444,000 or 16.6% due to decreased demand for tons mined and reduced occupancy of developed properties.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $243,000 or 7.4% over the same quarter last year due to lower staffing and reduced company aircraft expenses partly offset by increased stock compensation expense and professional services.

The after tax income from discontinued operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 was $24,000 versus a loss of $196,000 for the same period last year.  Diluted earnings on discontinued operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 was $.01 compared to a diluted loss of $.07 in the first quarter of fiscal 2009.

Summary and Outlook.  Transportation segment results were lower due to reduced miles driven and lower fuel surcharges.  The Company announced on January 6, 2010 that the transportation group has been unsuccessful in renewing certain contracts with significant customers recently.  For the fiscal year ending September 30, 2009 the revenue from these customers was $10,012,000 or approximately 11.0% of transportation group revenue.

Gross profit from the leasing of developed buildings has weakened from previous levels and may weaken further as our three newer buildings brought into service in the past fifteen months continue to contribute no revenue (but now add their fair share of depreciation and maintenance expense) and expiring leases, if renewed, will likely entail rent concessions from the existing levels.  Prospective tenants for vacant space are significantly fewer than in the past few years, competition for their contracts are more intense and rental rates continue to decline from existing levels.  The Company is not presently engaged in the construction of any new buildings.
