Let’s now move on to the company’s financial performance during the fiscal first quarter of the year. Unsurprisingly, InfraREIT delivered very strong financial results during the quarter, which clearly indicates that the company’s activities and operations are on the right track. Specifically, the company reported lease revenue of $29.3 million, which yields an increase of roughly 19% year-over-year. InfraREIT also reported a net loss of $35.9 million for the first quarter, which includes a $44.9 million non-cash expense suffered in connection with the company’s IPO. At the same time, InfraREIT reported a net income for the same period in 2014 of $5.0 million. Therefore, considering the fact the company incurred high expenses in relation with the IPO, it is quite evident that the financial performance of the company is very strong. In the meantime, just a few days ago, InfraREIT’s board of directors announced a quarterly cash dividend of $0.225 per share that will be paid on July 23, which shows that the company is confident about its finances and cash flow. Robert Pitts’ Steadfast Capital Management is among the largest shareholders in InfraREIT Inc. (NYSE:HIFR), owning 2.01 million shares.
