The investment in fleet inventory available for sale was $5.0 million at April 30, 2011, a decrease of $215,000 from April 30, 2010 year-end levels.  Fleet, capital asset and other financing increased $6.3 million, or 35%, to $24.3 million from April 30, 2010.

The Company’s core business, promoting tourism in Canada through the recreational vehicle experience, is seasonal in nature with the majority of its revenue being earned during the May to October period, the first and second quarters of its fiscal year. The majority of the company’s direct expenses are incurred in that same period. The Company markets rental units and fleet inventory available for sale on a continuous basis throughout the year, however sales of such units are generally strongest in the spring and early summer.  As a result of ongoing interest, amortization and adjustments and selling, general and administrative expenses, the last two quarters of the fiscal year normally produce operating losses.  Losses incurred in the last two quarters may exceed profits earned in the first two quarters of the fiscal year.  

The financial data included in this release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), except for the term cash flow from operations per share.  Cash flow per share is a measure that provides shareholders and potential investors with additional information regarding the Company’s liquidity and its ability to generate funds to finance its operations.
