The company reported net loss of $(246,618), compared to net income of $1,397,918 for the six-month period in 2016.
The loss was due in part to cost of goods (equipment) increasing almost 100 percent, from approximately $600,000 to $1.2 million, through the purchase of rental equipment that is now beginning to produce rental income or offset the cost of goods (COGs); doubling of the parts inventory; the addition of employee health insurance; and an increase in legal fees that in July 2017, netted the company approximately $500,000.
Revenue for the first six months of 2016 was unusually high due to a large one-time shipment of equipment to a customer in Africa. Generally, equipment is ordered during the last six months of the year to arrive for spring and summer construction and agriculture projects.
