  1. Investments consist of U.S. treasury securities classified as trading securities and publicly traded equity securities, of which $15,250,413 is held by our insurance entities at March 31, 2022.

While we intend to hold our current 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.

In the first quarter of 2022, Net Other Income also includes a gain of $24,977,740 related to the deconsolidation of Yellowstone Acquisition Company, which completed its business combination with Sky Harbour on January 25, 2022.
