TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., March 24, 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 year ended December 31, 2021. The complete full year 2021 financial results, as well as management commentary, can be found by accessing the Company’s shareholder letter on its investor relations website.
“Our growth is attributable to our strong and unique brand and the incredible people behind it – our Hagerty team – who treat our members like they are part of the family and share their enthusiasm for cars and driving,” said McKeel Hagerty, Chief Executive Officer of Hagerty.
“During 2021, we continued our strong track record of membership growth, ending the year with 2.4 million members, as well as 2.1 million vehicles insured. We generated robust revenue growth of 24%, and written premium grew 17% to $674.3 million. Our solid revenue growth continues to be enhanced by our recurring revenue model with contributions coming from across our ecosystem of product offerings,” added Mr. Hagerty.
“As we move through 2022 and beyond, we are well positioned to drive organic growth across our insurance and membership offerings. We see clear opportunities to further monetize our sizable addressable market and expand our market share; therefore, we plan to continue to invest in our capabilities in 2022 to capitalize on these opportunities. Importantly, while we look forward to launching our relationship with State Farm, we have deferred the launch until later in 2022 as the companies work through state licensing and product rate filing processes as well as significant policy and membership systems integration to ensure the highest standard of agent and customer experience,” concluded Mr. Hagerty.
