Total revenue increased $427,000 or 2%. Fleet sales revenue increased 15% due to a larger number of units sold, with a corresponding increase in cost of services of 10%. Guest revenue decreased 3% due to decreased guest experience nights. Guest cost of services before employee compensation and benefits decreased 11% and employee compensation and benefits decreased 5%.
Investment in guest fleet increased $932,000 from April 30, 2013 levels to $23.9 million at January 31, 2014, primarily due to fleet purchases in the first quarter of $12.2 million combined with a transfer to fleet inventory available for sale of $5.4 million, disposals due to unit sales of $2.9 million, depreciation of $2.7 million and other additions of $191,000. Fleet and other financing increased $8.8 million from April 30, 2013 due to financing relating to the purchase of new fleet combined with the purchase of the Vancouver property and land in Balzac, Alberta.
The Company's core business, promoting the opportunity to experience Canada at your own pace through the recreational vehicle experience, is seasonal in nature with the majority of its revenue being earned during the May to October period, the first and second quarters of its fiscal year. The majority of the company's cost of services expenses before employee compensation, benefits and depreciation are incurred in that same period. The Company markets for sale previously guest-experienced recreational vehicles and fleet inventory available for sale on a continuous basis throughout the year; however, sales of such units are generally strongest from January to early summer. As a result of ongoing depreciation, interest and other operating expenses, the last two quarters of the fiscal year normally produce operating losses. Losses incurred in the last two quarters may exceed profits earned in the first two quarters of the fiscal year. The financial data included in this release has been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 34, Interim Financial Reporting.
CanaDream Corporation promotes Canada and the opportunity to "experience Canada at your own pace(TM)" in recreational vehicles and sells its guest-experienced recreational vehicle fleet on a wholesale and retail basis.
