Harbor Custom Development’s President and CEO, Sterling Griffin stated, “We are extremely pleased with our team’s performance during the first quarter 2022. We again achieved a new quarterly record for top line sales coming in at $28.6 million, continuing the momentum from 2021. Our unique and flexible business model enabled us to achieve top line revenue growth of 106.0% on a year-over-year basis through the sale of entitled land, developed lots, single-family homes and fee build income. Our diverse revenue stream further validates our distinct business plan of monetizing our real estate assets at the most opportune time during the development life cycle.”

On a year-over-year basis, the Company also improved gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses as a percentage of sales, operating income, net income, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA.

During the quarter, the Company continued to diversify geographically with the closing of the first two home sales in Texas with sales prices of approximately $400 per square foot. Further, the Company has continued to expand its product lines through the recent listing of six multi-family projects in Western Washington for $278 million. Mr. Griffin further commented, “As apartment values continue to escalate to unprecedented levels, we are well positioned to capitalize on this significant market opportunity.”

Results for the First Quarter 2022

Net sales for the first quarter 2022 increased by 106.0% to $28.6 million, compared to net sales of $13.9 million for the first quarter 2021. This increase was largely due to increases in home sales of $5.5 million, entitled land sales of $4.5 million, fee build revenues of $2.7 million, and sales of developed lots of $2.1 million.

Gross profit for the first quarter 2022 increased to $6.1 million compared to $0.6 million for the first quarter 2021. Gross margin for the first quarter 2022 improved to 21.2%, compared to 4.4% for the first quarter 2021. The $5.4 million increase in gross profit was primarily attributable to the increase in sales year-over-year, with entitled land sales having the largest impact. The 16.8% increase in gross margin was primarily driven by the significant margins attributable to the sale of entitled land.

Operating expenses for the first quarter 2022 were $3.8 million compared to $2.0 million for the first quarter 2021. This expected increase in operating expenses is primarily attributable to increases associated with the continued investment in public company infrastructure and our future growth plans, including payroll related costs, professional fees, marketing and advertising, and right of use expense for the new corporate office, as well as stock compensation and depreciation expense. Operating expenses as a percentage of sales for the first quarter 2022 were 13.4% compared to 14.8% for the first quarter 2021. The improvement in operating expenses as a percentage of sales is primarily due to the increased sales year-over-year which have allowed us to scale the business at a rate that is favorable to operating expenses incurred.

For the first quarter 2022, net income was $1.6 million compared to net loss of $(1.5) million for the first quarter 2021. Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $(0.4) million or $(0.03) basic EPS compared to $(1.5) million or $(0.12) loss per share.

EBITDA for the first quarter 2022 increased 2,967.0% to $3.5 million compared to EBITDA of $0.1 million for the first quarter 2021. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes the impact of stock compensation and other non-recurring costs, for the first quarter 2022 increased by 1,600.0% to $3.9 million compared to $0.2 million for the first quarter 2021. For the first quarter 2022, Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales was 13.6% compared to 1.7% for the first quarter 2021.

Full Year 2022 Outlook Estimate

Based on our first quarter results, we reiterate our previously announced 2022 revenue guidance of approximately $160 million and Adjusted EBITDA guidance of approximately $20 million.

Reconciliation of the forward-looking full year 2022 Adjusted EBITDA estimate to net income is not being provided as we do not currently have sufficient data to accurately estimate the variables and individual adjustments for such reconciliation. Our management cannot estimate on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort the impact these variables and individual adjustments will have on our reported net income and reported effective tax rate because these items, which could be significant, are difficult to predict and highly variable.

In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “expect,” “plan,” anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate, “predict,” “target,” “project,” “intend,” “potential,” “would,” “continue,” “ongoing,” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology that concerns our expectations, strategy, priorities, plans, or intentions. You should not put undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved, if at all. These forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties, including without limitation complications due to COVID-19 which could cause delays in dates of completion or closings, changes in the real estate industry such as increases in mortgage interest rates which could dampen residential home purchases, and those risks and uncertainties set forth in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the financial information contained herein include EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin, which are financial measures that have not been calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, (GAAP), and are therefore referred to as non-GAAP financial measures. We have provided definitions for these non-GAAP financial measures and tables in the schedules hereto to reconcile these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide valuable information regarding our earnings and business trends by excluding specific items that we believe are not indicative of the ongoing operating results of our businesses, providing a useful way for investors to make a comparison of our performance over time and against other companies in our industry.

We have provided these non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental information to our GAAP financial measures and believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors with additional meaningful financial information regarding our operating performance and cash flows. Our management and board of directors also use these non-GAAP measures as supplemental measures to evaluate our businesses and the performance of management, including the determination of performance-based compensation, make operating and strategic decisions, and to allocate financial resources. We believe that these non-GAAP measures also provide meaningful information for investors and securities analysts to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. Furthermore, the non-GAAP measures presented by us may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
