Security National Financial Corporation (SNFC) (NASDAQ symbol "SNFCA") announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.
For the three months ended March 31, 2011, SNFC’s pre-tax loss from operations decreased 26% from $1,672,914 in 2010 to $1,322,582 on a 11% decrease in revenues to $34,172,180. After tax loss decreased from $951,233 in 2010 to $518,473 in 2011.
Scott Quist, President of the Company, said, “Despite the obvious disappointment in our overall loss, one should also realize that two of our three business segments reported record revenues and profitable results. For the first quarter, our life insurance segment revenues increased 19% to an all-time record and profitability increased nearly 600%, which are certainly impressive results. Our death care segment’s revenues increased only 2%, but profitability increased 375% from year ago levels, reflecting more efficient operations. Where we continue to experience significant weakness is in our mortgage segment. That segment’s revenues decreased 32% and the loss from operations increased 44%. While there are many reasons for the poor mortgage results to include stagnating interest rates and the continuing troubled state of the housing market, our job is to restore profitable operations regardless of the economic environment. To that end we continue to consolidate operations and adjust our marketing.”
SNFC has three business segments. The following table shows the revenues and earnings before taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2011 as compared to 2010 for each of the three business segments:For the three months ended March 31, 2011:
