JACKSONVILLE. Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SG Blocks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SGBX) (“SG Blocks” or the “Company”), a leading designer, innovator and fabricator of modular structures, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.


First Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue for the first quarter of 2022 was $8.6 million compared to $9.2 million for the first quarter of 2021. Gross profit was $2.5 million compared to $0.6 million in the first quarter 2021.
  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $13.1 million at March 31, 2022.
  • SG Blocks had 11 projects under contract with a construction backlog that is valued at approximately $7.7 million at March 31, 2022. The Company’s backlog does not include any projects related to SG Development Corp. and does not include ongoing medical testing.
  • SGB DevCorp.’s construction pipeline $750 million, including an active residential development pipeline of approximately 4,200 units at March 31, 2022.


First Quarter 2022 Operational Highlights

  • Selected by HTR Investors for a Design Build contract that is expected lead to 150 “glamping” style units for placement at interactive, unique, experiential properties around the U.S.
  • Listed Lago Vista, a 58 acre fully entitled development parcel located outside Austin, TX, for sale for $15 million.
  • Completed purchase of “McLean mixed-use” site in Durant, OK, a 114 acre parcel on which the Company plans to build no less than 300 residential units and 680,000 sq ft of industrial manufacturing space, some to be operated by SG Blocks and others built for 3rd parties.
  • SG Blocks led Moliving’s seed round, the world’s first luxury nomadic hospitality solution to offer hoteliers and landowners the opportunity to adjust room inventory to match demand in real time with minimal disruption to the environment. SG Blocks is contracted to build 60 units for Moliving’s flagship hotel, Moliving at Hurley House, in the progressively popular Hudson Valley, scheduled to open this summer. An additional five locations are expected to open in 2023, providing SG Blocks with a pipeline of approximately 400 standalone units. SG Blocks CEO Paul Galvin has also joined Moliving’s Board of Directors.
  • Received approval to buy and build a 114,000 square foot manufacturing facility on 33 acres in St. Marys, GA to support the Company’s 1,286 acre water-front Cumberland Inlet development project. SG Development Company continues to actively pursue properties and prospects in the Southeast that will be serviced from St. Mary’s.
  • Signed a ten year exclusive distribution agreement with Sanitec Industries LLC, a sustainable waste management company that is the global patent holder for the Sanitec Microwave Healthcare Waste Disinfection System™ that shreds and disinfects biomedical waste.
  • The Company’s SG ECHO subsidiary announced its largest contract to date, valued at ~$6 million. The contract for more than 100 units are scheduled to be delivered by the end of Q2 2022.


Paul Galvin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SG Blocks, commented, “SG Blocks had a good first quarter with strong revenue, gross profit and positive net income. Revenue was $8.6 million and gross profit expanded to $2.5 million compared to $0.6 million last year.”


“We ended the quarter with $13.1 million in cash, and combined with healthy activity in the sale of Lago Vista, we believe that we’re well funded to support our cash needs. We’re also still exploring the sale of a minority stake of SGB DevCorp. after launching this subsidiary in the first quarter of 2021 and building its current 4200 residential unit pipeline organically over the last year. Both of these corporate actions are good examples of the many paths that property development can take to raise capital without shareholder dilution. None of the above activities will increase our share count from the 12 million shares currently outstanding.”


“Looking ahead, we expect to have five projects start up in the next twelve months. Beginning this summer, these plans include construction on our second manufacturing facility in Waldron, OK, which is expected to begin operations by fulfilling the Moliving contract. Also in 2022, we plan to begin construction on the St. Mary’s manufacturing facility to support the build out of the Cumberland Inlet project, which itself is expected to begin Phase 1 construction of 1,200 residential units in April 2023. After that, the start of construction is scheduled for Q2 2023 for the McLean manufacturing facility, our third and fourth factories, and the McLean residential development that is planned to cover approximately half a million square feet of multifamily housing with 300 units, as well as the start up of construction on the Norman Berry ll, a 130-unit multi-family, moderate income project in Fulton, Georgia. We’ve been planning these projects for several years and are excited about their launch and the revenue they’re projected to generate for SG Blocks, which we expect to lead to the Company being cash flow positive for all of 2022,” concluded Mr. Galvin.


Financial Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2022

Revenue for the first quarter 2022 was $8.6 million, a decrease of 6.5% compared to $9.2 million for the first quarter of 2021, which included higher construction services revenue generated from legacy projects. Revenue for the medical segment was $6.9 million, a 15% year-over-year increase.


Total gross profit for the first quarter of 2022 reached $2.5 million compared to $0.6 million in the first quarter of 2021. The gross profit margin increased to 28.9% compared to 6.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2021.


Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2022 were $2.1 million, an increase of 23.5% compared to $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2021. General and administrative expenses declined slightly to $0.8 million compared to the year ago period.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information


In addition to its results under GAAP, the Company presents EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for historical periods. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures and have been presented as supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. The Company calculates EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax benefit (expense), depreciation and amortization. It calculates Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before certain non-recurring adjustments such stock-based compensation expense. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented because they are important metrics used by management as one of the means by which it assesses the Company’s financial performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in the Company’s industry. These measures, when used in conjunction with related GAAP financial measures, provide investors with an additional financial analytical framework that may be useful in assessing the Company and its results of operations.


EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have certain limitations. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), or any other measures of financial performance derived in accordance with GAAP. These measures also should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items for which these non-GAAP measures make adjustments. Additionally, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be liquidity measures because of certain limitations, including, but not limited to: i) they do not reflect the Company’s cash outlays for capital expenditures; They do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital; and Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets are being depreciated and amortized and may have to be replaced in the future, and these non-GAAP measures do not reflect cash requirements for such replacements.


The non-GAAP information should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related notes.


The following is a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to the nearest GAAP measure, net loss:

In evaluating EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we will incur expenses that are the same or similar to some of the adjustments made in our calculations, and our presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed to mean that our future results will be unaffected by such adjustment. Management compensates for these limitations by using EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental financial metrics and in conjunction with our results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP information should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and related notes.
