CEO Commentary
Ashley Smith, CEO stated, “The Company had significant earnings improvement in the fourth quarter 2018 of $0.17 per share. The guaranteed buy-back deferral on our largest barrier order ever continues to impact current earnings as the deferred buy-back revenue balance increased to $6.6 million and the deferred buy-back asset balance increased to $5.3 million, which impacted pre-tax net income for the year by $1.3 million. Moving forward, the Company will be recognizing the deferred income through 2022, increasing bottom line profits each year.
 
“During the fourth quarter the Company received a new barrier rental order, in which the Company produced and started delivering 47,004 linear foot of rental barrier for a large infrastructure project in southeastern Virginia. This job is expected to be fully delivered in the first quarter of 2019, with revenue and earnings being recognized over the 36 month leasing period. The Company continues to grow the barrier rental fleet while adding product offerings, such as barrier installation and resetting, crash cushions, and safety accessories to provide a full-service safety barrier rental package to highway contractors. To support the additional barrier rental fleet, the Company has built a 4 acre storage and repair yard near the Midland, VA plant where the rental division, Concrete Safety Systems, operates the barrier rental fleet.
 
“Total Assets for the Company grew this year to $41.4 million at December 31, 2018 from $29.2 million at December 31, 2017, an increase of $12.2 million, or 41.8%, while only increasing outstanding debt on notes payable by $1 million. The continued reinvestment back into the Company prepares for the expected year over year sales growth with the high probability of accelerated infrastructure projects in our markets.
 
“Construction of our newest manufacturing facility in North Carolina is slightly behind schedule due to construction and weather delays, as it continues to remain within the $3.3 million budget. We now expect production to begin at the new facility in the third quarter 2019. With plant capacity in North Carolina more than doubling, we continue to bid on larger contracts to be manufactured in the new plant.”
 
Balance Sheet and Liquidity
As of December 31, 2018, the Company had cash and investments totaling $3.1 million. Accounts receivable increased to $12.3 million at December 31, 2018 with large billings occurring near the end of the fourth quarter, all of which are expected to be collected in the normal payment cycle. Total outstanding debt on notes payable was $4.5 million, which includes debt associated with the North Carolina expansion of $1.0 million. The increase in total outstanding debt on notes payable is mainly attributed to our execution of the North Carolina expansion strategy to support the growing demand in our markets.
