Making Progress at Conrad Industries ($CNRD)

We have been writing about barge-builder Conrad (CNRD) on the blog for years. Last year we published a sample from the Newsletter, and Nate wrote about it twice back in 2012.

Conrad is a rare Oddball with good, friendly management, but their business is really challenged by the lack of oil and gas activity in the Gulf of Mexico. However, they signed a big job this year:
Our backlog increased to $133.0 million at June 30, 2020, compared to $79.2 million at December 31, 2019 and $116.8 million at June 30, 2019. The increase in our backlog is primarily due to the signing of our largest contract to date, a 6,500-cubic-yard-capacity Trailing Suction Hopper Dredge, which will be constructed at our Deepwater South shipyard in Amelia with expected delivery in the first quarter of 2023.
The market capitalization is currently $61 million. Current assets net of all liabilities are $57 million. They also got a PPP loan of $8 million.

Here is a table showing their results for Q2 2020 showing a big improvement year-over-year. Gross profit up with revenue down, and big SG&A reduction, for a nice increase in income overall.

We'll have more coverage of Conrad in upcoming Issues of the Oddball Stocks Newsletter. (Try a sample here.)
