Investments consist of U.S. treasury securities classified as trading securities and marketable equity securities, of which $2,429,434 is held by our insurance entities at March 31, 2024.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2024, "Net Other Loss" included a loss of $10,171,615 mainly related to our equity method position in Sky Harbour, which was partially offset by $7,788,445 in other investment income mainly related to the Sky Harbour warrants held by Boston Omaha.

As a reminder, generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") require us to include the unrealized changes in market prices of certain investments in public securities in our reported earnings (3). While we intend to hold securities for the longer term, we may in the future choose to sell them for a variety of reasons resulting in realized losses or gains.

Cash inflow from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was $2,415,294, compared to a cash inflow of $1,368,181 for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

Our book value per share was $17.10 at March 31, 2024, compared to $17.19 at December 31, 2023.
