NHPR has achieved positive earnings for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. Revenues for the 3rd quarter grew 12.3% over the same period last year. The Company attributes the net earnings to the significant cost-cutting initiatives taken over the past couple of quarters and which is continuing in the 4th quarter.
“I am thrilled to announce that we have finally achieved profitability,” stated David M. Daniels, President and Chief Executive Officer of National Health Partners. “Due to the fact that our limited medical provider unexpectedly decided to exit the marketplace, we were unable to add any new CARExpress Plus limited medical sales during the 3rd quarter. Yet, despite this temporary setback, we were still able to substantially increase our revenue and reach profitability which is a testament to the underlying strength we have with our core CARExpress health discount programs. Although we achieved positive results in revenues and earnings, we anticipate much better results going forward into 2011.”
