CEO Commentary
Ashley Smith, CEO stated, “I am pleased to announce continued positive earnings for the second quarter 2019. This brings the earnings per share to $0.12 for the first six months of 2019 compared to $0.05 earnings per share for the first six months of 2018. There continues to be a positive impact to barrier rentals as we recognize revenue and net income for the deferred buy-back contract. Gross profit margins are lower during the first half of 2019 due to competitive pricing pressure, increased labor costs, and increased shipping and installation which tend to have lower margins than product sales, as compared to the first half 2018 when we had higher margin jobs in production. We remain focused on decreasing general and administrative costs to enhance bottom-line performance.
 
“During July 2019, the Company entered into an agreement to purchase over 100,000 linear feet of used highway safety barrier and approximately 100 crash cushion attenuators. The purchase will bring our rental fleet to nearly 300,000 linear feet of barrier and creates the first major investment in crash cushions. With planned highway construction and the continued use of Public Private Partnerships in our market, the increased fleet and expanded offerings will allow us to provide customers with turnkey solutions.
 
“The recent hiring of the new General Manager in South Carolina supports our corporate vision for the plant to improve safety, quality, delivery, and cost. His leadership, production, and technical expertise will help us successfully navigate Smith-Columbia moving forward.
 
“The new manufacturing facility in North Carolina is near completion with production set to commence in September 2019. The project is within budget at $3.3 million, with only $1.5 million financed as of June 30, 2019. The Company continues to successfully utilize cash for a portion of the plant construction, and additional capital expenditures, through positive operating cash flows. During the transition to the new plant, the Company will be manufacturing products out of both the new and old facilities in North Carolina to meet customer demands.”
 
Balance Sheet and Liquidity
As of June 30, 2019, the Company had cash and investments totaling $2.8 million, with the majority of cash being utilized to fund capital expenditures, thus eliminating the need for additional debt financing. Accounts receivable balances were $11.1 million at June 30, 2019, with a large amount collected subsequent to the period end. Total outstanding debt on notes payable was $4.7 million.
