CEO Commentary
Ashley Smith, CEO stated, “The Company generated positive earnings during the third quarter 2019, which keeps us on pace for another solid year. The gross profit margin percentage decreased during the third quarter 2019 due to the significant increase in shipping and installation revenues, which historically have lower margins than product sales. Comparatively, the third quarter 2018 included production of higher margin products than 2019. The change in margin was offset by the reduction of general and administrative costs which are constantly evaluated in the execution of our corporate strategy.
 
 “Production at the new manufacturing facility in North Carolina commenced during September 2019. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company successfully closed on the debt financing for the facility in the amount of $2.2 million. We anticipate the full move to the new plant to be completed by the end of 2020. We are looking forward to continued success in North Carolina while meeting increased customer demand.
 
“The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued a sunset date of December 31, 2019 for new highway crash test standards. Our J-J Hooks MASH TL3 freestanding barrier meets the new FHWA requirements and has been approved in 35 states, including the states of Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, where our three manufacturing facilities are located. We are anticipating long-term positive trends, with all existing highway barrier in the United States expected to be replaced over the next 10 years.”
 
Mr. Smith concluded, “We continue to execute on our strategic plan and position the business to take advantage of positive market fundamentals that support sustainable, long-term growth in construction spending, including increased infrastructure investment in the markets we serve, and prospects for increased federal surface transportation spending. As we look forward to 2020, the fundamentals of our business remain strong with continuous bidding in our two main end markets of infrastructure and high-rise building construction.”
 
Balance Sheet and Liquidity
As of September 30, 2019, the Company had cash and investments totaling $2.2 million, reflecting significant capital expenditures for the increase in manufacturing facilities. Accounts receivable balances were $12.1 million at September 30, 2019, with a substantial amount collected following the period end. Total outstanding debt on notes payable was $4.5 million at September 30, 2019. Subsequent to the period end, the Company successfully closed on the debt financing of the North Carolina expansion project, increasing the total outstanding debt by $0.7 million.
