Jeromy Olson, Chief Executive Officer of Sports Field Holdings, Inc., said, “We are off to a very strong start in 2019. During the quarter, we experienced several historical bests with regards to quarterly revenue totals and profit, including both dollars of profit and percentage or gross profit. We are particularly pleased with a 21.7% gross margin, where the typical construction industry gross margin is in the 10% range. We are clearly executing our projects in a highly efficient manner, and that bodes well as we proceed in 2019 and the years ahead. I believe these indicators provide key insights into the viability and growth potential for Sports Field Holdings, Inc. going forward.”

“Although the bottom-line is not yet in positive territory, we are making consistent progress by expanding our backlog, managing our operating expenses and executing on our projects in a highly efficient manner producing improving gross margin. We are excited with the opportunities ahead.”

“With several projects currently under construction and a strong backlog of contracts, we are working to sustain this positive momentum. The sales pipeline is robust, and we look to add to our backlog during the coming quarters of 2019.”
