"We are off to a strong start in 2024, posting a 30 percent increase in revenue from the prior-year quarter and our highest quarterly revenue," said Ashley Smith, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Smith-Midland. "The increase was primarily driven by increased production of our soundwall and utility products and increased shipping and installation. We are experiencing a strong demand for our utility vaults in response to the continued growth of data centers. Our prospects for the remainder of the year remain very favorable, thanks to the inflow of infrastructure funding expected in the latter half of 2024 at the state and local level, as well as our backlog. We remain well-positioned to deliver strong growth and create long-term value for our shareholders."

The Company reported 2024 first quarter revenues of $16.8 million compared to revenues of $12.8 million in the first quarter of 2023.

Gross profit increased to $3.9 million compared to $2.2 million in the prior year quarter due to the higher revenue base. Gross margin for the quarter improved by 480 basis points from the previous year's quarter to 23%, due primarily to higher production volume and better fixed cost absorption.

Net income for the first quarter was $1.1 million, or $0.22 and $0.21 per basic and diluted share, respectively, compared to net income of $80,000, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of 2023.

Soundwall sales were $3.0 million compared to $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2023. The increase is primarily related to higher production volumes, specifically at the North Carolina and South Carolina plants. Miscellaneous wall sales increased to $1.8 million from $1.2 million in the prior-year quarter due to increased production volumes at the Virginia and South Carolina plants.

Shipping and installation revenue increased 48 percent from the previous year quarter to $4.5 million. The increase is mainly attributable to the shipping and installation of SlenderWall and architectural panels that were previously produced throughout 2023. Royalty income totaled $575,000 compared to $411,000 in the first quarter of 2023, due to higher barrier production volumes by the Company's licensees. Barrier rental revenue for the first quarter of 2024 was $893,000 compared to $1.1 million in the prior-year quarter due to a shift towards longer-term rental projects from short-term rental projects.
