2009 Another Successful Year for ISC

April 20, 2010

In 2009, Information Services Corporation (ISC) posted a profit of $15.1 million, the third highest in its history.

“ISC focused on the right things in 2009, working towards securing a strong future and financial base,” said Minister responsible for ISC June Draude. “That strong foundation is supporting new opportunities, including the upcoming transfer of Corporations Branch from the Ministry of Justice to ISC in October 2010, and the future development of  an online portal to provide a more convenient and cost-effective means to deliver government services to business.” 

“Much of ISC’s business is dependent on the real estate market, which returned to more balanced levels in 2009 after two years of heightened activity,” said ISC President and CEO Jeff Stusek. “In spite of this, ISC successfully managed expenses through internal efficiencies and a focus on improving processes. At the same time, we were also able to respond to the needs of our customers and give back $6.1 million in fee reductions to Saskatchewan people in 2009.” 

ISC’s 2009 Annual Report shows the following financial highlights for the year:

  • $15.1 million in net income, compared to $22.4 million in 2008;
  • $57.1 million in revenue, compared to $66.4 million for 2008;
  • $42.0 million in expenses, compared to $44.0 million for 2008; and
  • $13.6 million dividend paid to Crown Investments Corporation (CIC), compared to $21.1 million in 2008.

Operational highlights as contained in the 2009 Annual Report include:

  • Fee reductions in marriage, divorce and estate planning situations saved  Saskatchewan families $6.1 million in 2009;
  • ISC maintained a turnaround time of 1.65 days for standard land transactions - better than the two-day target and among the fastest in Canada; and
