Results of Operations for the Second Quarter of 2011

Revenues

Total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2011 increased to $35.6 million, or 78.6%, as compared to $19.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. The increase was a result of a gradual pickup we experienced mostly in our construction and development business in 2011 and substantially higher prices for apartments and commercial space; no assurance can be given that this trend is sustainable.

Selling, general and administrative costs.

Selling, general and administrative costs increased by $3.1 million to approximately $3.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to approximately $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. This was primarily due to the anti-crisis measures our company implemented during the fiscal year 2010, such as a reduction in force and more efficient utilization of the remaining personnel, as well as the savings we realized on the costs of transportation, communications, security and lease of an additional office space offset by increases in professional fees and approximately $2.0 million in costs in setting up planned operations in the Middle East, which plan was abandoned by the Company in the second quarter of 2011.

Income from Operations

Income from operations decreased to a loss of approximately $1.1 million, from income of approximately $5.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, primarily due to significant increases in cost of goods sold and selling, general and administrative expense during the three month period ended June 30, 2011

Net Income

Net earnings decreased to a loss of $.05 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 as compared to net income of $5.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. The Company contributes the decrease in earnings primarily to increases in cost of goods sold and selling, general and administrative expense during the three-month period ended June 30, 2011.

Results of Operations for the 6 Months Ended June 30, 2011

Revenues

Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2011 increased to $75.4 million, or 91.13%, as compared to $39.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. The increase was a result of a gradual pickup we experienced mostly in our construction and development business in 2011 and substantially higher prices for apartments and commercial space; no assurance can be given that this trend is sustainable.

Selling, general and administrative costs.

Selling, general and administrative costs increased by $3.3 million to approximately $4.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to approximately $1.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. This was primarily due to the anti-crisis measures our company implemented during the fiscal year 2010, such as a reduction in force and more efficient utilization of the remaining personnel, as well as the savings we realized on the costs of transportation, communications, security and lease of an additional office space offset by increases in professional fees and approximately $2.0 million in costs in setting up planned operations in the Middle East, which plan was abandoned by the Company in the second quarter of 2011.

Income from Operations

Income from operations increased by approximately $12.0 million, from $9.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 to $21.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, primarily due to the increase in sales.

Net Income

Net earnings increased to $17.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 as compared to $9.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. The Company contributes the increase in earnings primarily to the substantial increase in sales offset by an increase in operating expenses.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company had a working capital surplus of approximately $30.6 million and stockholders' equity of approximately $64.1 million as of June 30, 2011. Cash and cash equivalents increased by approximately $5.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. The increase is primarily attributable to cash provided from the sale of marketable securities offset by the use of cash in operations.
