United Capital Corp. Reports Third Quarter And Nine Month Results

United Capital Corp. (NYSE Amex: AFP) today reported results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010.

Net income increased 159% to $10.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, versus the comparable 2009 period. Earnings per basic share were $1.13 for the year-to-date period, compared to $.44 in the same period in 2009. The increase in net income was fostered by a 43% increase in total revenues, for a total of $60.3 million in the first nine months of 2010, compared to $42.1 million for the same period of 2009. Operating income and income from continuing operations rose an impressive 106% and 115%, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, from that reported in 2009.

For the third quarter of 2010, net income rose 124% to $3.6 million, from $1.6 million reported in the third quarter of 2009. Earnings per basic share were $.40 for the current three month period, compared to $.18 per basic share in the same 2009 period. Total revenues grew 37% to $20.2 million in the three months ended September 30, 2010, compared to the same three month period of 2009.

The Company’s hotel operations reported increased revenues of 50% and 95% in the three and nine month periods of 2010, respectively, versus similar intervals in 2009, resulting from the August 2009 acquisition of a hotel in Miami, Florida, while the Company’s engineered products segment reported revenue growth of 50% and 43%, respectively, in the comparable timeframe. Each of these segments were profitable in the 2010 periods, reversing losses in 2009.

In commenting on these results, A.F. Petrocelli, Chairman of United Capital Corp., noted “Timely acquisitions, the strength of our real estate portfolio, and improved manufacturing demand have once again lead to significant revenue and profit growth in 2010.”
