“2019 marked another year of strong organic and total growth for BRP Group and we believe that continued operational enhancements and ongoing investments into our platform have positioned us well for our long-term future,” said Trevor Baldwin, Chief Executive Officer of BRP Group.  “Our ‘MGA of the Future’ platform continued to outperform during 2019 and will become part of our organic growth print beginning in the second quarter of 2020.  Finally, while we are closely monitoring COVID-19’s impact on the macroeconomic environment, we continue to prudently pursue our strategic objectives, which we believe should generate significant long-term value for our shareholders.”

“In 2019, we made significant strides enhancing our capital structure and reducing our cost of capital,” said Kris Wiebeck, Chief Financial Officer of BRP Group.  “In addition, earlier this month, we acted prudently due to ongoing macro conditions to further increase our committed capacity to $300 million, which provides us with additional financial strength and flexibility as we thoughtfully navigate through the current economic environment. As of today we have less than 1x net leverage on our balance sheet and approximately $280 million of cash and borrowing capacity.”

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of December 31, 2019, cash and cash equivalents were $67.7 million and there was $40.4 million of long-term debt outstanding.

On October 28, 2019, BRP Group sold an aggregate of 18,859,300 shares of Class A common stock including 2,459,300 shares pursuant to the underwriters’ over-allotment option, which subsequently settled on November 26, 2019. The shares were sold at an initial offering price of $14.00 per share for net proceeds of $241.4 million after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions of $17.8 million and net offering expenses of $4.8 million payable by BRP. The Company used a portion of the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering to repay the outstanding indebtedness and accrued interest under the Villages Credit Agreement of $89.0 million and concurrently closed the Villages Credit Agreement.

As of December 31, 2019, the Company had aggregate borrowing capacity of $225.0 million under its revolving credit facility, along with an accordion feature that allows the Company to increase the aggregate borrowing capacity from $225.0 million to $300.0 million. In March 2020, the Company increased the committed borrowing amount under the revolving credit facility to $300.0 million.

FOOTNOTES

  1. Organic Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2018 used to calculate Organic Revenue Growth for the three months ended December 31, 2019 was $20.8 million, which is adjusted to reflect revenues from Partnerships that reach the 12-month owned mark during the three months ended December 31, 2019. Organic Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2018 used to calculate Organic Revenue Growth for the year ended December 31, 2019 was $79.9 million, which is adjusted to reflect revenues from Partnerships that reach the 12-month owned mark during the year ended December 31, 2019. Organic Revenue is a non-GAAP measure.  Reconciliation of Organic Revenue to commissions and fees, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is set forth in the reconciliation table accompanying this release.

  2. “MGA of the Future” was acquired by the Company on April 1, 2019 and as a result is not included in the Organic Revenue Growth calculation above because it has not reached the twelve-month owned mark.  Since “MGA of the Future” was not acquired by the Company until April 1, 2019, the revenue of “MGA of the Future” for the prior-year period is not included in the consolidated results of operations for the Company for such period and the 34%  and 38% revenue growth rates for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019 were calculated including periods during which “MGA of the Future” was not owned by the Company.

  3. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP measures. Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is set forth in the reconciliation table accompanying this release.

  4. Pro Forma Revenue is a non-GAAP measure. Reconciliation of Pro Forma Revenue to commissions and fees, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is set forth in the reconciliation table accompanying this release.

  5. Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP measures. Reconciliation of Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA to Pro Forma Net Loss net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is set forth in the reconciliation table accompanying this release.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Organic Revenue, Organic Revenue Growth, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share (“EPS”), Pro Forma Revenue, Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA Margin are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered substitutes for GAAP measures, including commissions and fees (for Organic Revenue, Organic Revenue Growth and Pro Forma Revenue), net income (loss) (for Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA Margin), net income (loss) attributable to BRP Group, Inc. (for Adjusted Net Income) or diluted EPS (for Adjusted Diluted EPS), which we consider to be the most directly comparable GAAP measures. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, you should not consider these non-GAAP financial measures in isolation or as substitutes for commissions and fees, net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Other companies in our industry may define or calculate these non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, and accordingly these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the effects of financing, depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and certain items of income and expense, including share-based compensation expense, transaction-related expenses related to Partnerships including severance, and certain non-recurring costs, including those related to the Initial Public Offering and loss on modification and extinguishment of debt. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it eliminates the impact of expenses that do not relate to business performance, and that the presentation of this measure enhances an investor’s understanding of our financial performance.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin is Adjusted EBITDA divided by commissions and fees. Adjusted EBITDA is a key metric used by management and our board of directors to assess our financial performance. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it eliminates the impact of expenses that do not relate to business performance, and that the presentation of this measure enhances an investor’s understanding of our financial performance. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA Margin is helpful in measuring profitability of operations on a consolidated level.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin have important limitations as analytical tools. For example, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin:

  • do not reflect any cash capital expenditure requirements for the assets being depreciated and amortized that may have to be replaced in the future;

  • do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;

  • do not reflect the impact of certain cash charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations;

  • do not reflect the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;

  • do not reflect stock-based compensation expense and other non-cash charges; and

  • exclude certain tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us.

We calculate Organic Revenue Growth based on commissions and fees for the relevant period by excluding (i) the first twelve months of commissions and fees generated from new Partners and (ii) the impact of the change in our method of accounting for commissions and fees from contracts with customers as a result of the adoption of Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, effective January 1, 2018, under the New Revenue Standard on our 2018 commissions and fees when the impact is measured across periods that are not comparable. Organic Revenue Growth is the change in Organic Revenue period-to-period, with prior period results adjusted for Organic Revenues that were excluded in the prior period because the relevant Partners had not yet reached the twelve-month owned mark, but which have reached the twelve-month owned mark in the current period. For example, revenues from a Partner acquired on June 1, 2018 are excluded from Organic Revenue for 2018. However, after June 1, 2019, results from June 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018 for such Partners are compared to results from June 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019 for purposes of calculating Organic Revenue Growth in 2019. Organic Revenue Growth is a key metric used by management and our board of directors to assess our financial performance. We believe that Organic Revenue and Organic Revenue Growth are appropriate measures of operating performance as they allow investors to measure, analyze and compare growth in a meaningful and consistent manner.

Adjusted Net Income is presented for the purpose of calculating Adjusted Diluted EPS. We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) attributable to BRP Group, Inc. adjusted for amortization, and certain items of income and expense, including share-based compensation expense, transaction-related expenses related to Partnerships including severance, and certain non-recurring costs that, in the opinion of management, significantly affect the period-over-period assessment of operating results, and the related tax effect of those adjustments.

Adjusted Diluted EPS measures our per share earnings excluding certain expenses as discussed above and assuming all shares of Class B common stock were exchanged for Class A common stock. Adjusted Diluted EPS is calculated as Adjusted Net Income divided by adjusted dilutive weighted-average shares outstanding. We believe Adjusted Diluted EPS is useful to investors because it enables them to better evaluate per share operating performance across reporting periods.

Pro Forma Revenue reflects GAAP revenue (commissions and fees), plus revenue from Partnerships in the unowned periods.

Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA takes into account Adjusted EBITDA from Partnerships in the unowned periods and eliminates the effects of financing, depreciation and amortization. We define Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA as pro forma net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and certain items of income and expense, including share-based compensation expense, transaction-related expenses related to Partnerships including severance, and certain non-recurring costs, including those related to the Initial Public Offering and loss on modification and extinguishment of debt. We believe that Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it eliminates the impact of expenses that do not relate to business performance, and that the presentation of this measure enhances an investor’s understanding of our financial performance.

Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA Margin is Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA divided by Pro Forma Revenue. Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA is a key metric used by management and our board of directors to assess our financial performance. We believe that Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it eliminates the impact of expenses that do not relate to business performance, and that the presentation of this measure enhances an investor’s understanding of our financial performance. We believe that Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA Margin is helpful in measuring profitability of operations on a consolidated level.
