Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2018 were $26,156,000 with a
Net Income from continuing operations before tax in the amount of
$665,000. The Construction Contracting Division (mainly HVAC, plumbing
and electrical services) accounted for 75.0%, and the Construction
Materials Division (primarily fabrication of concrete reinforcing steel)
accounted for 25% of revenue for the six-month period.

Regarding the Construction Contracting Division, the first two quarters
of the year are historically the slowest of the year in the construction
industry. We believe that the outlook is good, and we expect that there
will be an increase in billings for the remainder of the year.

The Moro Corp. subsidiary, J.M. Ahle Co., involved in the miscellaneous
steel business, has been confronted with a fair amount of competition
from its steel-producing suppliers and tariff issues on steel purchases.
Therefore, Moro Corp. has taken steps to strategically address these

We believe that Moro's financial position is fairly strong. As of June
30, 2018, cash totaled $1,518,182 and represented 17.1% of stockholders'
equity of $8,858,133. Based on our balance sheet as of June 30, 2018,
equity per share was $1.45.
