DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / July 8, 2019 / Pure Cycle Corporation (NASDAQ Capital Market: PCYO) ("Pure Cycle" or the "Company") today reported financial results for its third quarter and nine months ended May 31, 2019.
Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended May 31, 2019 Highlights:
'We are pleased to report our results for our three and nine months ended May 31, 2019. The first nine months of our fiscal year 2019 was highlighted with record revenues for our Company,' commented Mark Harding, President of Pure Cycle Corporation. "We are pleased to have closed the sale of 75 finished lots, receiving approximately $3 million in proceeds, which represent final payment from 50 lots under our lot development agreements and full payment for 25 finished lots under our finished lot agreement. We expect to close an additional 75 finished lots this July for an additional $3.4 million, which will represent final payment from 50 lots under our lot development agreements and full payment for 25 finished lots under our finished lot agreement. In addition to our lot closings, we have received proceeds from the sale of 57 water and wastewater taps to date for a combined total of $1.8 million. Our three home builder customers have over 20 homes under construction, and home sales from our home builder customers continue to exceed forecasts," continued Mr. Harding.
Mr. Harding also reported that the Sky Ranch Community Authority Board, a political subdivision and a public corporation of the State of Colorado responsible for the construction, design and financing of Sky Ranch (the "CAB"), is exploring the possibility of a bond offering, perhaps as early as the end of this calendar year, dependent upon market and other conditions. The offering would be intended to satisfy some or all of the CAB's obligations to reimburse Pure Cycle for its construction of infrastructure and other improvements at Sky Ranch, including roads, curbs and gutters, park amenities, street and traffic signs, water and sanitary sewer mains, storm water management facilities and lot and grading improvements. As of May 31, 2019, those reimbursable costs aggregated to approximately $13.7 million."

Revenues increased approximately 328% and 255% during the three and nine months ended May 31, 2019, compared to the three and nine months ended May 31, 2018, respectively. The increases were primarily attributable to revenue recognized from lot sales and tap fees related to Sky Ranch. Revenue from water sales increased for both the three and nine months ended May 31, 2019, compared to the three and nine months ended May 31, 2018, due to higher industrial water revenue for fracking. Costs of revenues increased approximately 448% and 436% during the three and nine months ended May 31, 2019, compared to the three and nine months ended May 31, 2018, respectively, due primarily to costs incurred from land development.
During the three months and nine months ended May 31, 2019, net income increased approximately 2,210% and 2,994% during the period, compared to the three months and nine months ended May 31, 2018, respectively. The increase was primarily attributed to revenue from land development, higher water and wastewater tap fees and higher industrial water revenues related to fracking.
