Gary Fields, President, said, “Our increase in net sales is attributable to our continuing investment in new manufacturing equipment that has allowed us to capitalize on our existing workforce as well as reorganize production resources at our Tulsa facilities. We are witnessing operational and financial improvements as a direct result. Combined with our 2018 sales price increases, the result has been record sales for the year of 2019, an increase of 8.2%, as compared to $433.9 million in 2018.”

Mr. Fields, continued, “We are seeing improvements in our manufacturing capacity due to additional Salvagnini sheet metal fabrication machines coming online during mid-September 2019, evidenced by our results of a record gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2019. In addition to improvements in gross profit, we continue to reduce other costs as evidenced by the decrease in warranty claims paid for the year down 13.4% from 2018. With our high backlog containing the 2018 price increases combined with our continual improvements in operational capacity and efficiency, we expect to witness improvements in both our sales and earnings in 2020.”

Norman H. Asbjornson, CEO, added, “With a 2020 capital expenditure budget of $73.2 million, the Company continues to make strategic investments to maintain future sustainable growth. These investments in both operations and innovation are being made while maintaining a strong financial condition evidenced by our current ratio of 3.3:1 at December 31, 2019. Furthermore, we have unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $26.8 million as of December 31, 2019, to ensure that our future investment in the Company remains fiscally sound.”

Error Correction

The Company noted errors in previously issued financial statements relating to share-based compensation expense for stock options and restricted stock awards held by retirement eligible employees and directors.

More details, including the impact to each of the annual and interim financial statements is described in detail in the Company’s 2019 annual report. The effect of the error correction for the year ending December 31, 2018 was a $0.2 million decrease in net income and $0.01 decrease in our diluted earnings per common share. The effect of the error correction for the quarter ending December 31, 2018 was a $0.4 million increase in net income and $0.01 increase in our diluted earnings per common share.
