Today, we reported net income of $12.2 million, or $0.31 per share, on sales of $1.2 billion for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020. First quarter 2020 results include $15.0 million and $1.7 million, respectively, of pre-tax accelerated depreciation and other curtailment related costs, or $0.32 per share after-tax, due to the previously announced permanent curtailment of I-joist production at our Roxboro, North Carolina, facility.
“As we respond to the impacts and uncertainties of COVID-19, our focus remains on the health and safety of our associates, followed by business continuity. At the same time, we are fortunate to have entered 2020 in a sound financial position,” commented Nate Jorgensen, CEO. “Our first quarter financial results were strong in both businesses, demonstrating the strength of our integrated business model. We will continue to take the necessary steps to preserve our financial position and effectively support our customers, and ultimately will strive to balance the priorities of the various stakeholders that depend on us.”
For discussion of the impacts and our continued response to COVID-19, see “Balance Sheet and Liquidity” and “Outlook” in the full press release.
