Gilman Net Rises Despite Sales Decline
A decrease in expenses helped financial planning firm Gilman Cioccia record a 41.2-percent rise in net income for the first quarter ended March 31, despite a 10.9-percent drop in revenue. Much of the expense savings came from attrition among the company's independent financial planners who receive a higher commission payout percentage than do company planners.
Net income for the most recently ended period rose to $1.24 million from $287,000. Revenue dropped to just under $11 million from $12.3 million a year earlier. Financial planning revenue dropped to $7.3 million, off 10.8 percent from $8.2 million in last year's corresponding period. Attrition of the independent reps was also behind the revenue loss.
