Rocky Mountain Dealerships Inc. last week reported its financial results for the three months ended March 31. Sales decreased 19.1 percent compared to the same period in 2018. The drop was due primarily to a decline in same-store new equipment sales for the quarter as the dealership limited pre-sale activity and focused on distributing existing inventory.

Gross profit decreased by 5.2 percent. Gross profit as a percentage of sales improved to 14.4 percent compared to 12.3 percent for the same period in 2018.

Rocky Mountain told investors it maintained a solid balance sheet position.
