Stocks in this article: SNFCA

Security National Financial Corporation (SNFC) (NASDAQ symbol "SNFCA") announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

For the three months ended March 31, 2012, SNFC’s pre-tax earnings from operations increased 365% from a loss of $1,322,582 in 2011 to a gain of $2,328,592 on a 38% increase in revenues to $47,323,223. After tax earnings increased from a loss of $518,473 in 2011 to a gain of $1,662,183 in 2012.

Scott Quist, President of the Company, said “We are pleased with the first quarter results of our company. These results represent the third best first quarter that we have had, and contrasted with the loss for the same period last year represents significant improvements. Our life segment profitability did suffer a little this quarter due to a less profitable product mix, even though sales volumes actually improved. Our death care segment improved their product mix and accomplished a 49% improvement in income. Our mortgage segment continues to see the results of our conversion from wholesale to retail originations that resulted in the $3,900,000 improvement in profitability. Interestingly, national statistics showed a 5% decline in mortgage originations nationwide, whereas we experienced a 44% increase. Thus, we seem to be improving our market share.”

SNFC has three business segments. The following table shows the revenues and earnings before taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to 2011 for each of the three business segments.

For the three months ended March 31, 2012:

Total $ 47,323,223 $ 34,172,180 38.5 % $ 2,328,592 $ (1,322,582 ) 365.1 %
