Woods added, "During the last half of 2009 the Company showed a net profit of $268,000. We are seeing the fruits of significant efforts over the past 12 months, after taking control of and completing various requirements to prepare properties for sale. During the last half of the year, 75 transactions related to nonperforming assets sold for total proceeds of $30.8 million after additional write-downs and (gains)/losses of $1,469,000.

"Our focused and disciplined approach provides our customers with as much assistance as possible during difficult times while we attempt to avoid contributing to further job loss and property value declines, often associated with ill timed liquidations. We understand, if your neighbors' property is liquidated in a forced sale, your property drops in value and we work to minimize that whenever possible."
