EASTON, PA / ACCESSWIRE / March 24, 2020 / Paragon Technologies, Inc. (OTC PINK:PGNT), a holding company, announced its results for the year ended December 31, 2019, on March 24, 2020.
Paragon Technologies, Inc.'s Consolidated Statement of Operations for the years ended December 31, 2019, 2018 and 2017 are summarized below. For further detail on our results, shareholders should carefully review our annual report, which can found at www.pgntgroup.com.
Analysis of Results and General Business Commentary:
In 2018 newly issued accounting rules required that all companies record any unrealized losses or gains from equity investments in the income statement.
Paragon's investment gains or losses reflect realized gains or losses in the company's investment portfolio. Further analysis of Paragon's full year results will be available in the annual letter to shareholders which we expect to be released in the coming days.
Paragon utilizes pre-tax operating income, a non-GAAP financial measure, in its analysis of financial results. Paragon Technologies defines pre-tax operating earnings outside of the investment gains/losses of the Company.
As of December 31, 2019, Paragon's book value per share was $3.99/share compared with $3.22/share as of December 31, 2018. Book value per share numbers reflect the exclusion of the non-controlling interest equity portion of SEDC which we do not own.
In March 2020, the President declared that the coronavirus outbreak in the United States constitutes a national emergency. Our business activities (particularly distribution and automation) could be susceptible to changes in client demand and we may experience a varying degree of business interruption due to this outbreak. The extent to which the coronavirus impacts our results will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the coronavirus and actions taken to contain the coronavirus or its impact, among others.
