Mentor Capital Revenues Up 21.2% for the 3rd Quarter 2021
The stock moved upward as investors piled on to it yesterday and ended up with gains of as much as 12% as a consequence. The company announced that on a year on year basis, its revenues soared by as much as 21.2% and on the other hand, the gross profits jumped by 30%. In this context, it is also necessary to keep in mind that the trailing twelve month revenue for the company soared by 15.2% to hit as much as $5.47 million.
That worked out to 23.9 cents a share and that was considerably more than 8.86 cents a share as on November 13 this year. The trailing 12 month revenues figure is particularly significant and the Chie Executive Officer of the company Chet Billingsley spoke about it. He stated that the growth was primarily fuelled by the revenue growth that had been generated by Mentor’s subsidiary company Waste Consolidators Inc. Mentor owns a 51% stake in the subsidiary.
Mentor CEO, Chet Billingsley, notes that much of Mentor’s 15.2% trailing year-over-year revenue growth springs from Mentor’s 51% owned subsidiary, Waste Consolidators, Inc. (WCI). WCI’s revenue increased to $4.8 million for 2020, from $4.2 million in 2019 and $3.6 million in 2018, continuing a 14.6% annualized growth trend.
