Total revenue for the year-ended December 31, 2012, increased 23.2% to approximately $17.3 million, compared to approximately $14.1 million in 2011. This increase included a $783,862, or 8.9% increase, in revenue generated by our income properties and revenue from our real estate operations, which increased $2.6 million, or 517.8%, from the same period in 2011, reflecting revenue generated by a land transaction totaling $618,000, or more than $37,000 per acre, revenues from our subsurface leases, and the resolution of the Dunn Avenue commitment related to prior land transactions. Total revenues for the quarter-ended December 31, 2012, increased 15.3% to approximately $4.3 million compared to approximately $3.7 million during the same period in 2011. The growth in total revenues during the fourth quarter reflects an increase of 11.8% in revenue from our income properties, without the full benefit of the acquisitions closed in the latter part of the fourth quarter, and a 126.5% increase in revenue from our real estate operations, primarily from our subsurface leases, offset by slight decreases in golf revenues and other income.
