Peak Resorts released its second quarter report today, revealing increasing debt and losses for the large ski area operator.

Peak reported a loss of nearly $8 million for the fiscal quarter ended on October 31, a 15.9% increase as compared to Q2 last year. The company now has an accumulated deficit of $27.1 million.

Peak's cash balance dropped to $3.7 million, an 18.5% decline compared to this time last year.

Long term debt remained flat at $118 million, but represented a 21.5% increase compared to this time last year.

Short term debt increased significantly during the quarter, as Peak maxed out its $20 million acquisition line of credit and leveraged an additional $5.5 bridge loan. The short term debt represents a 47.8% increase over Q1.

Peak also reported the completion of the $20 million preferred stock offering after quarter close, which was used to pay off the bridge loan. CFO Stephen Mueller declared, "we now have a long-term solid financial foundation to drive organic growth across our resort portfolio and that we are also well positioned to take advantage of opportunistic and strategic acquisition opportunities."

$52 million remains held in escrow for the Mount Snow EB-5 project. Peak Resorts was forced to postpone its West Lake and Carinthia projects earlier this year, as it is still awaiting I-526 approval for the immigrant investment program. The company has at least $13 million invested in the EB-5 projects.

According to CEO Tim Boyd, Peak Resorts may resume paying shareholders a dividend once the EB-5 funds are released.

Peak Resorts operates Attitash, Crotched, Mount Snow, and Wildcat in New England, as well as numerous other ski areas in the Northeast and Midwest.
