Harbor Custom Development, Inc. Downsizes Land Development Infrastructure Division - Reducing Head Count by 56%

TACOMA, Wash., March 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harbor Custom Development, Inc. (Nasdaq: HCDI, HCDIP, HCDIW, HCDIZ) (“Harbor,” “Harbor Custom Homes®,” or the “Company”), an innovative real estate company involved in all aspects of the land development cycle, today announced the Company has downsized its land development infrastructure division, reducing the Company’s total head count by 56% since Q3 while selling off $7.5 million in heavy equipment that was previously utilized by the land development infrastructure division.

“By materially downsizing our fee build horizontal division and wrapping up our quarry operations, we have significantly reduced a considerable drag on our earnings and refocused the Company’s efforts on our core strengths of permitting, land entitlement, and vertical construction of single-family homes, townhomes, and multi-family units,” said Sterling Griffin, President and CEO of Harbor Custom Development, Inc.  

Lance Brown, Chief Financial Officer of Harbor Custom Development, Inc., added, “The sale of the equipment has reduced our annual cash outlay on loans and lease payments associated with this equipment by more than $2 million annually.  The Company also eliminated approximately $1.1 million in annual depreciation expense associated with the sale. Downsizing the land development infrastructure division and wrapping up our fee build projects and quarry operations is a good outcome for us as these projects had a negative impact on our 2022 cash flows and financial results.”
