DULUTH, GA / ACCESSWIRE / November 9, 2018 / CCUR Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: CCUR) today reported results for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 ended September 30, 2018. As a result of interest income earned from the Company's recently formed subsidiary, Recur Holdings LLC, and other income earned from investments and interest, the Company operated essentially at breakeven for the period. Total working capital as of September 30, 2018 was $55.8 million as compared to $55.3 million as of June 30, 2018.
"Since the closing of the sale of our Content Delivery business on December 31, 2017 we have been evaluating numerous opportunities intended to provide attractive returns for our stockholders and enhance our ability to utilize our existing net operating loss carryforwards," said Wayne Barr, CCUR's Interim President and CEO. "Our search has been wide ranging and focused on identifying well-priced businesses and assets that we believe have significant growth potential. Due to current market conditions, we have faced significant competition from strategic and, in particular, financial buyers that in many instances have raised seller valuation expectations above what we consider to be attractive levels for our stockholders. However, while we continue to search for opportunities for CCUR to acquire valuable businesses and assets, we have also identified an opportunity to generate attractive returns through operations related to commercial loans secured by real property. Through September 30, 2018 our newly formed operating subsidiary Recur Holdings has made mortgage loans with an aggregate carrying value of over $4 million and a weighted average annualized yield of 10.8%. These loans earned $131,000 during the first quarter of the fiscal year and we expect to continue to realize interest income from these loans during the fiscal second quarter."
"In addition, in early October we announced we had entered into a non-binding letter of intent to acquire an 80% interest in the assets of LuxeMark Capital, LLC, a privately held firm focused on the rapidly growing merchant cash advance sector of the finance industry that provides financing to small and medium-sized businesses. Through its syndication network, LuxeMark makes syndication capital or leverage available to select funding companies within the sector and hopes to expand its business-to-business strategy by increasing the number of qualified funders to which it provides capital nationwide. We continue to work towards the signing of a definitive agreement with LuxeMark, which entails a thorough due diligence process. Should we complete the transaction with LuxeMark, we believe the Company could generate attractive returns through our 80% pro-rated portion of the fee income earned by LuxeMark on the capital deployed by its syndicators as well as returns received on the $10 million the Company may make available as a LuxeMark syndicator in connection with the transaction. Meanwhile, we continue our efforts to be prudent stewards of the Company's working capital position and explore other opportunities to increase stockholder returns, including other acquisition and business opportunities," concluded Mr. Barr.
First Quarter Financial Results
The Company's continuing operations generated $131,000 of interest income on mortgage loans during the first fiscal quarter and reduced operating expenses by 43% as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2018, to $835,000, resulting in an operating loss for the period of $704,000. Other interest income, other income, dividend income, and the net realized gain on investments generated $1.2 million, which was partially offset by an unrealized loss on equity securities of $457,000, resulting in a loss from continuing operations before income taxes of $1,000, and a net loss from continuing operations of $3,000.
During the quarter, the Company repurchased a total of 23,008 shares of common stock for a total of $115,000 under its previously-announced stock repurchase program and has repurchased a total of 763,468 shares of common stock since the program's inception. A total of 236,532 shares remain available to be repurchased under the current authorization by the Board to repurchase up to 1,000,000 shares of Company common stock.
"We believe that during the first quarter, our team began to demonstrate the results of our efforts to reinvest the Company's working capital in strategies designed to generate accretive returns to our stockholders, while we continue to evaluate acquisition opportunities," concluded Mr. Barr.
