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.

Losses incurred in the last two quarters may exceed profits earned in the first two quarters of the fiscal year.
