ATLANTA, GA. August 15, 2016 -- Speedemissions, Inc. (OTCPK: SPMI, the “Company”), a national brand offering our customers quick and efficient emissions testing and safety inspections today announced its financial results for its fiscal quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016.
“We continue to see the positive results from our reorganization activities as our revenues steadily climb, while expenses are being managed responsibly. Speedemissions is one of the more prominent emission testing companies in each of our markets, with over 1.5 million cars tested over the past 15 years in Atlanta alone, and as a result, we’ve been able to capitalize on this stability, consistency and professionalism, thereby contributing to the increases in store-over-store business,” stated Rich Parlontieri, CEO of Speedemissions
“With the closing of our second quarter, not only will we have posted three consecutive quarters with positive EBITDA, but we will have gone from a negative EBITDA of over $215,000 in 2015 to a positive EBITDA of over $80,000 in 2016 for the respective six month periods ending June 30. This is permitting us to strengthen our balance sheet, and most importantly, focus on the creation of value for our shareholders. In addition, this improvement in operations has allowed us to review and carefully examine other business segments of the automotive industry that may align well with our core company, and potentially create an opportunity of business synergies,” added Parlontieri.
