    TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.Nov. 10, 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 and nine months ended September 30, 2022.

    “We delivered accelerated revenue growth of 29% during the third quarter despite a weakening macroeconomic environment,” said McKeel Hagerty, Chief Executive Officer of Hagerty. “These impressive results were powered by 16% written premium growth, higher quota share in Hagerty Reinsurance, as well as solid revenue contribution from the recently acquired Broad Arrow Group.”

    Mr. Hagerty continued, “The collector car transaction market is a large and growing opportunity for our Marketplace platform. The team transacted over $55.3 million in total vehicle sales at Motorlux in Monterey during the third quarter, validating the synergies across the Hagerty ecosystem and we expect to leverage our many owned and operated events in 2023 to build on this success. We also recently launched our online auction platform, which should enable us to leverage Hagerty’s hard earned position as the trusted brand for auto enthusiasts to capitalize on the opportunity.”

    “We are also investing methodically in value-added and best-in-class services for our members, which we believe will allow us to grow our loyal base of car lovers and provide them with the necessary resources to enjoy their passion. Excellent customer service drives our industry leading net promoter scores and high retention rates which are the foundation for future growth. We expect our strong top-line momentum to continue, and we are focused on prudently managing our cost structure to drive enhanced profitability and cash flow generation in 2023.”

These higher reserves are being being managed by rate filings taking effect now and over the coming months.

    Difference between Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA due primarily to a $37.9 million gain for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 resulting from a decrease in the fair value of warrant liabilities and a $34.7 million revaluation gain on our previously held equity method investment. Both of these gains were recognized as non-operating income and are included in Net Income (Loss) but excluded when calculating Adjusted EBITDA.

    (2)

    The revised outlook incorporates the third quarter impact from Hurricane Ian ($10.0 million), strengthening U.S. reserves for the 2022 accident year ($6.5 million) and $4.1 million lower expected payout of the contingent underwriting commission.

    (3)

    Growth based metric not comparable due to lack of Q3 2021 metric.

    DRIVING FUTURE GROWTH

    The Company has excellent business momentum in 2022, with year-to-date revenue growth of 27%, and is excited about and focused on our ongoing efforts to position the Company for strong and sustainable long-term organic growth and profitability over the coming years. We are confident that the opportunities we have identified to monetize our significant addressable market will expand our share and position us to grow. We plan to invest further in our capabilities in 2022 to capitalize on these opportunities to drive future growth, and are thoughtfully prioritizing growth initiatives into 2023 to profitably grow our business.

    Hagerty  Marketplace. Earlier this year, we launched Hagerty Marketplace, completed the acquisition of Broad Arrow Group, and announced the development of a proprietary digital platform to support our Marketplace activities. We believe auto enthusiasts will find our new services extremely valuable, including new trust-based platforms for buying, selling and financing collector vehicles.

    MGA Insurance. We expect to continue to launch strategic partnerships with major carriers longer-term. We also plan to deepen our penetration into services and data analytics in order to support our existing partnership customer base.

    Reinsurance. We continue to benefit from our contractual quota share arrangements with the U.S. and U.K. 2022 share increasing to 70%. We also will look to continue to methodically grow our international share of underwriting profit over the coming years.

    Membership. We look forward to increasing our paid member penetration through an enhanced value proposition for our customers. We also expect to increase conversion of our legacy insurance book to HDC and to integrate our multiple digital platforms.

    Media & Entertainment. These efforts build our brand and drive network effects that fuel our businesses. We will continue to push forward with our strategy to expand our digital audience and focus on owned and operated events including Concours and Touring events, as well as RADwood and Concours d’Lemons to reach growing and new auto segments.

    State Farm  Update. Our digital and technology team is nearing completion of the development work and have moved into the testing phase of the project. There are currently over 460,000 eligible policies, and based on recent adoption rates, we are anticipating up to 75% HDC adoption on new insurance policies over time and an average annual revenue per customer of $85-$110. We expect to begin activating State Farm’s 19,200 agents to sell classic car policies during the first half of 2023 on a state by state basis.

    Key Performance Indicators

    In addition to the measures presented in our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, we use the following key performance indicators and certain non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends in our business against planned initiatives, prepare financial projections and make strategic decisions. We believe these financial and operational measures are useful in evaluating our performance when read together with our financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    Contribution Margin and Contribution Margin Ratio

    We define Contribution Margin as total revenue less operating expenses adding back our fixed operating expenses such as depreciation and amortization, general and administrative costs and shared service salaries and benefits expenses. We define Contribution Margin Ratio as Contribution Margin divided by total revenue.

    We present Contribution Margin and Contribution Margin Ratio because we consider them to be important supplemental measures of our performance and believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors for period-to-period comparisons of our business and in understanding and evaluating our operating results.

    We caution investors that Contribution Margin and Contribution Margin Ratio are not recognized measures under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, and that Contribution Margin and Contribution Margin Ratio, as we define them, may be defined or calculated differently by other companies. In addition, both Contribution Margin and Contribution Margin Ratio have limitations as analytical tools because they exclude certain significant recurring expenses of our business.

    Our management uses Contribution Margin and Contribution Margin Ratio to:

    • analyze the relationship between cost, volume and profit as revenue grows;
    • measure how much profit is earned for any product or service sold; and
    • measure how different management actions could affect the Company’s total revenue and related cost levels.

    The following table reconciles Contribution Margin and Contribution Margin Ratio to the most directly comparable GAAP measures, which are Operating income (loss) and Operating income (loss) margin (Operating income (loss) divided by Total revenue), respectively:

    Adjusted EBITDA

    We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) (the most directly comparable GAAP measure) before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), adjusted to exclude changes in fair value of warrant liabilities, stock-based compensation expense, gains and losses from asset disposals and certain other non-recurring gains and losses. We present Adjusted EBITDA because we consider it to be an important supplemental measure of our performance and believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.

    Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA:

    • as a measure of operating performance of our business on a consistent basis, as it removes the impact of items not directly resulting from our core operations;
    • for planning purposes, including the preparation of our internal annual operating budget and financial projections;
    • to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of our operational strategies;
    • to evaluate our capacity to expand our business;
    • as a performance factor in measuring performance under our executive compensation plan; and
    • as a preferred predictor of core operating performance, comparisons to prior periods and competitive positioning.

    By providing this non-GAAP financial measure, together with a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, we believe we are enhancing investors’ understanding of our business and our results of operations, as well as assisting investors in evaluating how well we are executing our strategic initiatives. However, Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative to, or a substitute for net income (loss) or other financial statement data presented in our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as indicators of financial performance. Some of these limitations include:

    • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures, or contractual commitments;
    • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
    • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;
    • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our tax expense or the cash requirements to pay our taxes; and
    • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and such measures does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
    • other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

    The following table reconciles Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, which is Net income (loss):

    Other non-recurring (gains) losses relates to severance expense recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

    Net income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA include $10.0 million of estimated net losses related to Hurricane Ian. Additionally, we strengthened reserves for U.S. auto liability by $6.5 million for the 2022 accident year. Both of these events adversely impacted the 2022 results compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

    We incurred $6.0 million and $7.6 million during the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and $24.1 million and $23.3 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, for certain pre-revenue costs related to scaling our infrastructure, newly-developed digital platforms and legacy systems, human resources and occupancy to accommodate our alliance with State Farm and other potential distribution partnerships as well as to further develop our Hagerty Marketplace initiatives. These costs were not included in the Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation above.

    Pursuant to a defined set of activities and objectives, these expenses are adding entirely new capabilities for us, integrating our new and legacy policyholder, membership and Hagerty Marketplace systems with State Farm’s legacy policy and agent management systems and other third-party platforms. In addition to onboarding a third-party project management system related to these initiatives, we leased a new member service center in Dublin, Ohio and added several hundred new employees as of September 30, 2022 to meet the expected transactional volume from these initiatives. These costs commenced in 2020 and will reduce our operating profitability until we start to produce adequate revenue to cover the ongoing costs, primarily associated with serving State Farm customers.

    Adjusted EPS

    We define Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Share (“Adjusted EPS”) as consolidated Net income (loss) attributable to both our controlling and non-controlling interest, less the change in fair value of our warrants and the revaluation gain on previously held equity method investment, divided by our outstanding and total potentially dilutive securities. The total potentially dilutive securities includes (1) the weighted-average issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, (2) all issued and outstanding non-controlling interest Hagerty Group Units, (3) all unexercised warrants and (4) all unvested stock-based compensation awards.

    In the third quarter of 2022, we began removing (1) the change in fair value of our warrants and (2) the revaluation gain on previously held equity method investment from consolidated Net income (loss) attributable to both our controlling and non-controlling interest for purposes of calculating Adjusted EPS. While this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q does not include references to prior periods’ non-GAAP measures, as revised, our Adjusted EPS for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 are $(0.06) and $(0.10), respectively, as compared to $0.07 and $0.10, respectively, under the prior formulation of Adjusted EPS. We believe this updated presentation of Adjusted EPS enhances investors’ understanding of our financial performance from activities occurring in the ordinary course of our business.

    The most directly comparable GAAP measure is basic earnings per share (“Basic EPS”), which is calculated as Net income (loss) attributable to controlling interest divided by the weighted average of Class A Common Stock outstanding during the period.

    We present Adjusted EPS because we consider it to be an important supplemental measure of our operating performance and believe it is used by investors and securities analysts in evaluating the consolidated performance of other companies in our industry. We also believe that Adjusted EPS, which compares our consolidated Net income (loss) (which includes our controlling and non-controlling interest) with our outstanding and potentially dilutive shares, provides useful information to investors regarding our performance on a fully consolidated basis.

    Our management uses Adjusted EPS:

    • as a measure of operating performance of our business on a fully consolidated basis;
    • to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of our operational strategies;
    • to evaluate our capacity to expand our business; and
    • as a preferred predictor of core operating performance, comparisons to prior periods and competitive positioning.

    We caution investors that Adjusted EPS is not a recognized measure under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, including Basic EPS, and that Adjusted EPS, as we define it, may be defined or calculated differently by other companies. In addition, Adjusted EPS has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered as a measure of profit or loss per share.
