The pre-tax loss for 2011 was approximately $488,000 compared to pre-tax income of $3.9 million for 2010, or a decrease of $4.3 million.

The basic and diluted loss per share was $.07 for 2011, while basic and diluted earnings per share were $.51 and $.50, respectively, in 2010.
Rodney Smith, Chairman and CEO stated, “2010 and 2009 were record breaking years for the Company with respect to sales and net income, while 2011 was disappointing at best. The Company started the year in a profitable manner, however, this gave way to losses in the second half of the year due to major project delays. From a positive perspective, the Company was able to minimize its losses with its lean initiatives, its product diversity and management’s ability to reduce certain expenses to be more in line with production levels. With the economy slowly improving, we expect in 2012 to see sales pick up gradually during the year. We are operating the Company with a near term goal of returning to profitability as quickly as possible and with our 25 year goals clearly in front of us.”
Smith-Midland develops, manufactures, licenses, rents, and sells a broad array of precast concrete products for use primarily in the construction, transportation and utilities Industries.
