ChineseInvestors.COM Guidance Forecasts Strong 3rd Quarter Performance
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Moving forward into its third quarter (FY 2014), ChineseInvestors.COM (OTCQB Symbol 'CIIX') anticipates generating a solid increase in both the revenue as well as pretax earnings categories.
Mr. Warren Wang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented, "We are very excited to see our third quarter performance shaping up so nicely. We expect to substantially lower our lease space as well as interest expenditures while maintaining solid growth in all of our revenue categories. Our service provider relationships are fueling our top line very nicely and as of the date of this press release our active service provider client list includes two (2) OTCPNK, eleven (11) OTCQB/X, and two (2) NYSE/NASDAQ companies; several of which have long term service agreements in place."
Mr. Brett Roper, Chief Operating Officer commented, "At this time we are projecting pretax earnings in the $500,000 range on revenues in the $1,100,000 range as related to Q3 of FY 2014 performance, noting that the quarter ends on February 28th of 2014. These values represent strong continued growth for the company and we are very excited by the recent announcement of our new venture with Medicine Man of Colorado in providing Cannabis related technology licensure. We continue to work in providing various levels of support for 'private to public' as well as 'up listing' based company initiatives. One of our long term OTCQB clients was just approved in January for elevation to the NASDAQ Global Markets Exchange."
Mr. Wang stated, "This pretax earnings forecast would place us at $0.06 per share in earnings based upon a fully diluted shareholder base and comfortably on target for doubling last year's top line while establishing a strong positive pretax earnings margin in comparison to last year's pretax losses (FY 2013) of just over $1.1M."
