The Company's core business, promoting the opportunity to
experience Canada at your own pace 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 cost of services
expenses before employee compensation, benefits and depreciation are
incurred in that same period.
The Company markets for sale guest experienced recreational
vehicles and fleet inventory available for sale on a continuous basis
throughout the year; however, sales of such units are generally
strongest from January to early summer. As a result of ongoing
depreciation, interest and other operating 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.
