Kent Wilson CEO had this to said, "Most of our industry segments in Q1 2022, including our Construction Services holdings, showed improvement over Q4 2021 and Q1 2021. The Company is managing many complex challenges, including labor force access and supply chain constraints, which did very well considering the enormity these two factors present on the global business front. With investments into automation, we were able to augment our talented workforce to create greater efficiency. When you combine that with our long-term healthy vendor relationships, companies like QCA and RCA, unlike many of their competitors, can procure components and product supplies with only modest interruption to our customer base. All in all, it was a good first quarter for Alpine 4 and our holdings, and barring any further degradation in the supply chain, the Company expects its gross profit margins to continue to improve."

Financial Measures That Supplement GAAP

Alpine 4 believes it is important for shareholders, stakeholders, and inventors to be presented with non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate performance and trends of the total company and its businesses. This includes adjustments in recent periods to GAAP financial measures to increase period-to-period comparability following actions to strengthen our overall financial position and how we manage our business.

Quality Circuit Assembly had an organic revenue growth of $915 thousand which was an increase of 26.9% over Q1 2021. This increase was primarily driven by increased demand from our EV customers. The acquisition of Alternative Laboratories in May 2021 attributed to non-organic revenue growth of $3.8 million. The decline in organic margin was a function of supply chain issues and the Company expects margins to increase starting in Q3 2022.
