TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., May 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Hagerty, Inc. (NYSE: HGTY), an automotive lifestyle brand and a leading specialty insurance provider focused on the global automotive enthusiast market, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The complete first quarter 2022 financial results, as well as management commentary, can be found by accessing the Company’s stockholder letter on its investor relations website.
“We are off to a strong start in 2022, continuing the momentum from the prior year,” said McKeel Hagerty, Chief Executive Officer of Hagerty. “We generated strong results across our business during the first quarter. Our membership count continued to increase and reached 2.5 million members, representing 11% year-over-year growth. Revenue growth accelerated by 30% to $167.8 million year-over-year, while written premium remained solid, increasing 16% year-over-year to $154.8 million. We were also very pleased to see strong customer engagement with our Hagerty Drivers Club (HDC), as HDC paid member count increased 9% from the end of the first quarter 2021 to 727,000 as of March 31, 2022. These strong results are a testament to our unique business model and unwavering commitment to provide value-added and best-in-class services to our members.”
“Looking ahead, we remain focused on what we can control in this challenging macro environment, and believe we are well positioned to drive sustainable double-digit organic written premium growth,” added Mr. Hagerty. “We will continue to provide our members with a wealth of new offerings that will attract and retain car lovers, which enables us to further monetize our substantial addressable market as our members expand their use of fee-based Hagerty products and services. While 2022 will be a year of investment for Hagerty, as we have noted previously, we are excited about the long-term value that will be derived from these opportunities. We also are excited about our partnership with State Farm, which is on track to launch before the end of 2022.”
