HII received $3.1 billion in Q1 contract awards, bringing its total backlog to approximately $48.4 billion as of March 31.

The company also posted $153 million in net earnings, compared to $129 million in the first quarter of
2023, and $3.87 in diluted earnings per share, compared to $3.23 in the same quarter last year.
