Stocks in this article: SNFCA

Security National Financial Corporation (SNFC) (NASDAQ symbol "SNFCA") announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

SNFC announced revenues of $36,466,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. This represents a 15% decrease from 2010. Pre-tax earnings from operations for the three-month period increased 65% from $85,000 in 2010 to $141,000. After tax earnings decreased 51% from $419,000 in 2010 to $205,000 in 2011.

SNFC announced revenues of $70,639,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011. This represents a 13% decrease over 2010. Pre-tax loss from operations for the six-month period decreased from $(1,588,000) in 2010 to $(1,181,000) in 2011. After tax loss decreased from $(532,000) in 2010 to $(314,000). Scott Quist, President of the Company, said, “We continue to see a sharp dichotomy between our business lines. Our life insurance and death care segments continue their excellent year-to-date revenue and profit performances, and our mortgage segment continues to struggle. We have accomplished considerable change in our mortgage segment, changing to a more retail dominated distribution model, while trying to retain as much of our wholesale channel as possible. We are now close to 50/50 distribution between those two channels, whereas several years ago wholesale would have been 80% to 90% of the total production. Secondly, we continue to rationalize our cost structure given the sharp decrease in market size and therefore our production. There is still great uncertainty in the mortgage markets due to economic and regulatory factors. We are however, cautiously optimistic that positive results will be achieved in the second half of the year. ”

SNFC has three business segments. The following table shows the revenues and earnings before taxes for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2011 as compared to 2010 for each of the three business segments:
