EX2BS3B8S EfiBE The Ail OHM C all L u m b e r IE e it H o ni pan y will now accept applications from its customers and the people of Northern Arizona for $10,000 of its CAPITAL STOCK that will undoubtedly yield a splendid annual cash dividend. Because of the Company's continued rapid and healthy growth since its organization a little over two years ago, and with a view of providing additional and better facilities for the handling of its ever increasing wholesale and retail business, and for making further expansion, at a meeting of the stockholders, held on Tuesday. October the 4tb, it Was decided to increase the Company's capital stock from $30,000.00 to $50.000.00 and place $10,000.00 of this increase in the hands of the Company's customers and the people in its territory, and. effective this date the Company will receive applications for its capital stock in blocks of from one to ten shares to be delivered when necessary order for increase is obtained from the Arizona Corporation Commission, which order has been applied for. Price $125.00 per share. Cash or on terms of J down; J in thirty -days and i in sixty days. All shareholders purchasing prior to November 15th, will participate on a pro-rata basis in this year's earnings. t THIS IS A SOUND IVESTMENT-Because 1. The Company is engaged in a business that is considered to be of the highest character, carrying less hazard than most any merchandising line. 2. By reason of progressive methods it has enjoyed a growth not experienced by any other business in its territory, with every indication for a continued successful business. 3. It now owns and operates FOUR lumber yards, from which it derives an annual business of approximately $150,000.00. 4- Its business is not confined to one particular field, thus enabling it to always command an av erage business throughout its territory. 5. Its large volume of business permits of an advantage in purchasing power that materially effects both its retail prices and the cost of oper ation, all to the advantage of its customers. 6. By centralizing its general business under one main office its accounting and clerical cost is held down to a minimum. 7. Its wholesale department inaugurated some sixty days sgo, which controls the Northern Arizona distribution of several standard lines, has shown a steady increase since its inception, and shows every indication of becoming another splendid asset to the business. 8. During the past year, with most every business of any nature operating at a loss, this Company showed an increase in business over the previous year of nearly 50 per cent, and its net earnings were more than satisfactory. This years's business will show another increase over last year's business f OVER FIFTY PERCENT, and its estimated earnings at this time are in excess of last year's.
