For the year ended April 30, 2014, CanaDream Corporation recorded net and comprehensive income of $1.1 million, an 86% increase from the prior year. Cash flow earned from operating activities was $18 million, a 29% increase.

Total revenue increased $1.4 million (guest revenue decreased 4% and revenue from the sale of guest fleet and fleet inventory increased 19%). Operating expenses increased 2% from the prior year. Finance interest increased 4%.

At April 30, 2014, investment in guest fleet and fleet inventory was $27 million, a $1.4 million decrease from the prior year. Despite the decrease in guest fleet and fleet inventory, fleet financing was $20.2 million, an increase of $123,000 from April 30, 2013.

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 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.
