Sitestar Reports Fiscal 2010 Results

LYNCHBURG, VA--(Marketwire - April 1, 2011) - Sitestar Corporation (OTCBB: SYTE), a holding company for technology related businesses, announced financial results for its year ended December 31, 2010. Financial highlights for the year include:

  • Total Revenue was $5,051,916, a decrease of $2,640,992 or 34.3% from $7,692,908 for the same period in 2009.
  • EBITDA was $1,532,266, a decrease of $1,371,453 or 47.2% from $2,903,719 for the same period in 2008.
  • Net loss was $757,409, a decrease of $837,406 from net profit of $79,997 for the same period in 2009.
  • Outstanding shares were repurchased during 2009 under the Repurchase Program. This reduced the outstanding shares by 1,464,000 from 76,199,705 to 74,735,705 from the same period in 2009.

"We continue to have positive cash flows even though our revenues and profits have decreased," said Frank R. Erhartic, Jr., CEO for Sitestar. "We were not able to close any major acquisitions in 2010 and with the decline of our existing dial-up customer base, our revenues have suffered. Amortization of previous acquisition costs in 2010 and future years makes our profits less favorable even though our cash flows are still very good."

"Since we have been able to accumulate a significant amount of cash over the last couple of years, we decided to invest in real estate in a time when it can be acquired at a bargain. These properties are refurbished as needed to maximize the market appeal and placed on the market when they are ready," said Erhartic. "We believe that investment in foreclosed or other distressed properties can yield a positive return on our investment while we look for other acquisition opportunities to expand our tech related business."
