Maui Land & Pineapple Company, Inc. (NYSE:MLP) reported net income of $24.8 million, or $1.99 per share, for 2010. This compares to a net loss of $123.3 million, or ($15.33) per share, for 2009. Revenues for 2010 were $42.0 million versus $50.4 million for 2009. Net income for 2010 was higher than the net loss for 2009 primarily due to the recognition of a $26.7 million gain that was previously deferred from the March 2009 sale of the Kapalua Plantation Golf Course, $16.6 million of gains resulting from the termination of postretirement plans in 2010, a $47.2 million loss from the Bay Holdings investment in 2009 and $14.2 million in impairment charges in 2009.
For the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company reported net income of $12.0 million, or $0.65 per share, compared to a net loss of $30.4 million, or ($3.76) per share, for the fourth quarter of 2009. Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $14.7 million, compared to $10.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. The increase in fourth quarter net income in 2010 compared to the net loss in 2009 was primarily due to certain of the same factors described above.
During 2010, the Company reduced its outstanding long-term debt from $94.2 million to $45.2 million and extended the maturity date on the Company’s remaining credit facilities from March 2011 to May 2012. In February 2011, the maturity date of the Company’s credit facilities was further extended to May 2013.

Haruki, chairman and interim CEO. “While significant challenges remain, we are grateful for the support of our shareholders, creditors, and the community, as we move ahead with our new business model.”
