Patriot Transportation Holding, Jacksonville, Fla., reported net income of $1.35 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2002, a decrease of $783,000 when compared to $2.13 million earned in the same quarter last year.
Consolidated revenues for the first quarter fell 23.5% to $23.49 million from $30.7 million in the same quarter last year. The transportation segment's revenues for the first quarter decreased 20.7% to $19.78 million from $24.94 million in the first quarter last year, primarily as a result of the closing of the company's third-party agent/owner-operator subsidiary, Patriot Transportation Inc., in September 2001. This subsidiary had revenues of $4.6 million in the first fiscal quarter of last year. The rest of the decrease in transportation's revenue was due to a 3.3% decline in miles hauled in the continuing operations, which resulted primarily from a lower demand for petroleum products.
Consolidated gross profit dropped $1.94 million to $5.07 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2002. This decrease is attributable to a $2.07 million decrease in gross profit from property sales and a decrease in transportation segment gross profit of $75,000, partially offset by a $200,000 increase in gross profit from rents and royalties within the real estate segment.
