(NASDAQ:RILY), a diversified financial services company which operates through several wholly-owned subsidiaries, announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018 and reiterated guidance for 2019.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $11.2 million
  • Net loss of $8.8 million or $0.34 per diluted share (included restructuring charge of $6.3 million)

“2018 was another year of profitable growth for B. Riley Financial. Our results reflect positive momentum across our collection of businesses as we continue to develop and expand our platform of assets. We have worked extensively at organic growth in each of our divisions in addition to revenue and cost synergies as we continuously integrate our various operating subsidiaries. To that end, we successfully onboarded GlassRatner and magicJack in 2018 and look forward to growing earnings and cash flow in those businesses,” said Bryant Riley, Chairman and Co-CEO, B. Riley Financial. “Looking ahead, we believe our platform, in partnership with our strong and nimble balance sheet, will continue to generate attractive returns on our capital. We are particularly excited about the opportunities for Great American Group as store closings across the retail industry continue to be active. This is evidenced by recent engagements with Payless ShoeSource and Gymboree in addition to our expectation of realizing significant revenues from the completion of Bon-Ton Stores’ asset liquidation in our results for the first half of 2019. Our valuation and appraisal business continues to provide steady earnings and revenue growth which we expect to continue in 2019. Lastly, we will continue to use our balance sheet to support our clients and as an engine to drive outsized returns over a long period of time. While the volatility in financial markets dampened our fourth quarter results, we have seen a rebound in the first quarter of 2019 and we view this activity as both core to our business and attractively positioned as we look to the rest of 2019 and beyond. We believe the company is stronger than ever and we remain excited for the opportunities ahead.”

Fourth Quarter 2018 Financial Summary
For the three months ended December 31, 2018, total revenues were $102.0 million compared to $110.2 million for the same year ago period. Revenues in the Auction and Liquidation, Valuation and Appraisal, and Principal Investments segments increased $5.9 million, $2.8 million and $7.0 million respectively compared to the same year ago period. Revenues in the Capital Markets segment for the fourth quarter of 2018 were down partly as a result of declines in the Company’s proprietary investment account which were in line with declines in the broader equity markets in Q4 2018.

  • Capital MarketsSegment: Revenues totaled $60.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $84.4 million for the same year ago period. Capital Markets segment revenues included mark-to-market losses during the quarter. Segment loss of $12.5 million included $1.1 million of impairment of intangible assets, and $4.8 million of severance and other restructuring costs related to the rebrand of B. Riley Wealth Management.
  • Auction and Liquidation Segment: Revenues increased to $10.1 million from $4.2 million for the same year ago period. Segment income increased to $2.3 million from $0.1 million for the same year ago period. Results for this segment are expected to vary from quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year due to the episodic nature of Great American Group’s retail liquidation engagements.
  • Valuation and Appraisal Segment: Revenues increased to $11.3 million from $8.5 million for the same year ago period. Segment income for the quarter increased to $3.4 million from $2.5 million for the same year ago period. Fourth quarter results represented record revenue growth for Great American Group Advisory & Valuation Services primarily driven by an increase in appraisal engagements.
  • Principal Investments Segment: Revenues increased to $20.0 million from $13.0 million for the same year ago period. Segment income increased to $5.7 million compared to $5.3 million for the same year ago period. Results for this segment were primarily driven by United Online and partially by magicJack which the Company acquired on November 14, 2018.

The Company recorded a loss of $8.8 million or $0.34 per diluted share during the fourth quarter of 2018. Results for the fourth quarter of 2018 included a restructuring charge of $6.3 million, which comprised of $1.1 million of impairment of intangible assets, and $5.2 million of severance and other restructuring charges primarily related to the rebrand of B. Riley Wealth Management. This compared to a loss of $6.1 million or $0.23 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2017. The loss in the fourth quarter of 2017 included a one-time tax expense of $13.1 million in a form of non-cash charge related to the U.S Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $11.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $21.4 million for the same year ago period. Adjusted EBITDA includes earnings before taxes, interest, depreciation and amortization, share-based payments, fair value adjustments, insurance settlement recovery, restructuring costs and transaction-related and other costs. (See “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for further discussion of this non-GAAP term).

Adjusted net income totaled $0.7 million or $0.03 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2018. This compares to $11.6 million or $0.44 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2017. Adjusted net income excludes the impact of share-based payments, fair value adjustments, amortization of intangible assets, restructuring costs, insurance settlement recovery, transaction-related and other costs, tax impact of aforementioned adjustments and certain tax items. (See “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for further discussion of this non-GAAP term).

Full Year 2018 Financial Summary

  • Capital Markets Segment: Revenues increased to $275.1 million from $189.7 million for the same year ago period. Results were driven primarily by an increase in revenues from investment banking, wealth management services, and consulting fees as result of the acquisition of GlassRatner on August 1, 2018. Segment income for the year totaled $10.2 million compared to $15.9 million for the same year ago period.
  • Auction and Liquidation Segment: Revenues increased to $55.0 million from $47.4 million in the same year ago period. Segment income increased to $27.0 million from $11.2 million for the same year ago period. Results for this segment were primarily driven by the firm’s involvement in several significant retail liquidations.
  • Valuation and Appraisal Segment: Revenues increased to $38.7 million from $33.3 million in the same year ago period, representing another record year for Great American Group Advisory & Valuation Services. Segment income totaled $11.1 million compared to $9.7 million for the same year ago period.
  • Principal Investments Segment: Revenues increased to $54.2 million from $51.7 million for the same year ago period.

Other factors that could adversely affect our operating results and cash flows include (without limitation) those risks described from time to time in B.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Certain of the information set forth herein, including adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA, may be considered non-GAAP financial measures. B. Riley Financial believes this information is useful to investors because it provides a basis for measuring the Company's available capital resources, the operating performance of its business and its cash flow, excluding net interest expense, provisions for or benefit from income taxes, depreciation, amortization, fair value adjustment, insurance settlement recovery, transaction and other expenses, restructuring costs, and stock-based compensation that would normally be included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). In addition, the Company's management uses these non-GAAP financial measures along with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in evaluating the Company's operating performance, capital resources and cash flow. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP, and non-financial measures as reported by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies.
