Our results of operations for the year ended December 31, 2020 represented a significant change from the year ended December 31, 2019.
In the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company had a net loss of $4,885,239 compared to a net loss of $8,053,428 in the year ended December 31, 2019, reflecting a decrease of $3,168,189 or 39%.
The main reason for this change in net loss was a change in operating expenses. In the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company had operating expenses of $17,589,288 compared to operating expense of $31,200,994 in the year ended December 31, 2019, reflecting a decrease in operating expenses of $13,611,706 or 44%. The change in cost of sales and recorded impairment of real estate in 2019 are the primary reasons for the volatility in these two periods. Cost of sales was $11,773,936 for the year ended on December 31, 2020 compared to cost of sales of $19,968,757 for the year ended on December 31, 2019. Additionally, we recorded an impairment of $5,230,828 on our real estate assets in the period ended on December 31, 2019. No impairment was recorded for the year ended on December 31, 2020.
In addition, there was a decline in revenues. Revenue was $15,412,783 in the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $24,257,953 in the year ended December 31, 2019, reflecting a decrease of $8,845,170 or 36%. An increase in property sales from the Company’s Ballenger Project and first sale of a section of the Company’s Black Oak Project in the first quarter of 2019 contributed to higher revenue in that period. Pursuant to a lot purchase agreement dated July 3, 2018, 150 CCM Black Oak Ltd sold 124 lots located in the Company’s Black Oak project to Houston LD, LLC for a total purchase price of $6,175,000 in January 2019.
