UNR Holdings Announces Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UNR Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: UNRH) ("UNR" or the "Company"), a leading commercial and residential real estate development and construction company operating principally in the city of Moscow and its suburban communities, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Alexey Kim, CEO of UNR Holdings, stated, "We are pleased with our current profitability. The decline in top-line revenue for the first six months of 2012 is attributable to a temporary slowdown in sales caused by a change in realtor and enhanced by seasonality. Based on current market conditions, we expect stronger sales in the second half of the year."

Results of Operations for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2012

Revenues: Total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012 decreased to $15.0 million, or 57.9%, as compared to $35.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The decrease was a result of a sales decline the Company experienced mostly in its construction and development business during the quarter, offset by an increase in realized selling prices for apartments and commercial space.

Cost of Sales: Cost of sales decreased by $23.3 million, or over 71%, to $9.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, from $32.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, primarily due to a decrease in revenues from the Company's construction and development business.

Income from Operations: Income from operations increased to approximately $4.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 from a loss of approximately $1.1 million for the comparable period in 2011, primarily due to a decrease in the cost of sales percentage offset by a decrease in sales during the three-month period ended June 30, 2012.

Net Earnings: Net earnings increased to $3.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to a net loss of $0.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The Company attributes the decrease in earnings primarily to a decrease in the cost of sales percentage during the three-month period ended June 30, 2012. Basic and diluted earnings per share totaled $0.10 for the second quarter of 2012, compared to a loss per share of $0.01 in the second quarter of 2011.

Income from Operations: Income from operations increased to approximately $5.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, from income of approximately $21.6 million for the comparable period in 2011, primarily due to decreases in the cost of sales percentage and a decrease in overhead, offset by decreases in sales during the six-month period ended June 30, 2012.
