Note 19 – Segment Information


Continuing Operations


The Company is an operating, acquisition, and investment business. Subsidiaries in which the Company has a controlling financial interest are consolidated. The Company generally has two reportable segments: 1) the historic residual medical operations segment, which included the cost basis of our former membership interests of Electrum, the former contractual interest in the Electrum legal recovery, the settlement payments receivable from G Farma and its co-defendants, the former finance lease payments receivable from Pueblo West to Partner II, the operation of subsidiaries Mentor IP and Partner I, and 2) its classic energy segment which will consist of the Company’s operations and investment in the classic energy space. The classic energy segment includes the fair value of securities investments in (i) oil and gas through Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) stock, Occidental Petroleum Corp. (OXY) stock, and Chevron Corp. (CVX) stock, (ii) uranium through Cameco Corp. (CCJ) stock, and (iii) coal through Arch Resources, Inc. (ARCH) stock. Additionally, the Company formerly had small investments in securities listed on the NYSE and NASDAQ, an investment in note receivable from a non-affiliated party, the fair value of convertible notes receivable and accrued interest from NeuCourt, which on July 15, 2022, was exchanged for a NeuCourt SAFE security investment that will be carried at cost, and the investment in NeuCourt that is included in the Corporate, Other, and Eliminations section below. Segment information for our current operating segments is as follows:

Discontinued Operation – Facilities Operations Segment


As disclosed in Note 3 of the consolidated financial statements, we sold our entire ownership interest in WCI on October 4, 2023 for $6,000,000. Following our sale of WCI, we received no new income from WCI and had no further involvement or continuing influence over its operations. Consequently, our facilities operations segment was eliminated at the time of sale. Additionally, the results of operations associated with our facilities operations segment were excluded from our continuing operations and presented as a discontinued operation in our consolidated financial statements. WCI worked with business park owners, governmental centers, and apartment complexes to reduce their facility-related operating costs. The WCI segment is now reported as a discontinued operation. See Note 3 of the consolidated financial statements for detailed financial information on our former facilities operations segment.
