Firemans Contractors, Inc. Sees Increase In Fortune 500 Client Base - 89% Spike In Repeat Fortune 500 Business
Newly Launched Franchise Model Expected to Leverage Additional Increases In Government and Commercial Clientele in 2013
DALLAS, Aug. 27, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Firemans Contractors, Inc. (OTCBB: FRCN) (OTCQB: FRCN), a full-service contractor providing professional services for commercial and government clients, offering B2B commercial franchises and services in the pavement maintenance industry, announced today that the company benefited from a total combined repeat business of 36% and 61% in 2010 and 2011, respectively, with the stimulus seeming to stem from continuous additions of Fortune 500 companies and large property management companies to the client portfolio.
Management expects approximately 82% of their clients to return in 2013 with at least an estimated increase of 62% in its Fortune 500 client portfolio. Renee Gilmore, CEO of Firemans Contractors describes these stats as being, "significant to the growth value of our company."
This growth is easily identifiable. During Fiscal Year 2011 (ending June 30th), out of 272 contracted jobs, approximately 3% were contracted with Fortune 500 companies. This represents roughly 13% of the company's revenues deriving from Firemans Contractors' Fortune 500 clients. In Fiscal 2012, the number of contracted jobs increased by 7.7%. Approximately 8% of the jobs were contracted with Fortune 500 companies; representing 21% of the company's revenues.
The ratio of repeat business from Firemans Contractors' Fortune 500 customers also increased between fiscal 2011 and 2012. Of the company's repeat customers in 2011, 67% was attributed to Fortune 500 companies. 89% of repeat customers were attributed to Fortune 500 clients during fiscal 2012.
Gilmore continued, "Our repeat client base demonstrates the high quality of our work as well as the sheer size of our clientele. As each client expands operations, a new facility generally must be acquired or built. The fact that a client returns each year for our services means that each year there is growth within that particular organization. This translates into strong operational growth and a continuous increase in revenue for Firemans Contractors."
People close to the company suggest that as the Firemans Contractors' franchise model continues to roll out, Firemans reach will increase considerably within the next 2 years. This visibility and easy access to franchise operators within a client's locale will greatly contribute to the expected national growth of the company; possibly adding significantly more Fortune 500 clients in its portfolio.
Gilmore concluded, "Fortune 500 clients make up an increasing percentage of our total revenues, by focusing our attention on these relationships will bring additional value to both our franchisees and our shareholders. We are currently in talks with other Fortune 500 companies with the expectation to close on most of this new prospective business by year end."
