-- Revenue Grows More Than 52% Year-Over-Year;
Real Estate Business Profitable for Fifth Consecutive Quarter --

CARY, N.C., Aug. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Fathom Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: FTHM)a national, technology-driven, end-to-end real estate services platform integrating residential brokerage, mortgage, title, insurance, and SaaS offerings for brokerages and agents, today announced financial results for the 2022 second quarter and first half ended June 30, 2022.

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Total revenue grew more than 52% for the second quarter of 2022 to $128.2 million, up from $84.2 million for last year's second quarter. Fathom completed more than 13,200 real estate transactions for the 2022 second quarter, an increase of approximately 32% from the same quarter last year. Fathom's real estate agent network grew approximately 38% to approximately 9,560 agents at June 30, 2022, up from 6,950 at June 30, 2021.

Business line revenue for the 2022 second quarter, compared with the 2021 second quarter was as follows:

*Other primarily includes revenue generated from Fathom's title and insurance businesses.

"Growth in our key metrics this quarter, even with less-than-ideal market conditions, reflects our ability to provide agents with the opportunity to keep significantly more of their hard-earned commission dollars," said Fathom CEO, Joshua Harley. "We believe that competitive advantage should serve us well over the long-term.

"Our main focus is on achieving total company Adjusted EBITDA profitability. Through a conservative approach to cost management, we are working closely with each of our business heads to reduce expenses by a total of approximately $750,000 per quarter by the first quarter of next year," Harley said. "While Fathom is not immune to this unprecedented market, and there possibly will be additional challenges to manage through, we strongly believe that the value we provide to our agents, our model and our execution will continue to drive growth into the future."

GAAP net loss for the 2022 second quarter totaled $5.7 million, or a loss of $0.35 per share, compared with a GAAP net loss of $2.1 million, or a loss of $0.15 per share, for the 2021 second quarter. Weighted average diluted shares outstanding increased approximately 14% for the 2022 second quarter, compared with the same quarter last year. The year-over-year change in GAAP net loss resulted principally from additional losses in the Company's mortgage business due to the rapid increase in interest rates, which negatively impacted home sales, as well as increases in non-cash stock compensation expense.

General and Administrative expense (G&A) totaled $12.4 million, or 9.6% of total revenue, for the second quarter of 2022, compared with $8.7 million, or 10.4% of total revenue, for last year's second quarter. The increase in G&A in absolute terms was primarily attributable to recently completed acquisitions and increases in non-cash stock compensation expense. On a sequential basis, G&A decreased from 12.9% of total revenue for the first quarter of 2022. 

Adjusted EBITDA loss, a non-GAAP measure, was $1.9 million for the 2022 second quarter, and $2.3 million for the 2021 second quarter. The Company's real estate segment posted profitable Adjusted EBITDA for the fifth consecutive quarter, while its mortgage business was negatively impacted by the current real estate market and rising interest rates, which are reducing the demand for mortgages.

Fathom provides Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, because it offers additional information for monitoring the Company's cash flow performance. A table providing a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to its most comparable GAAP measure, as well as an explanation of, and important disclosures about, this non-GAAP measure, is included in the tables at the end of this press release.

First Half 2022 Financial Results
Total revenue grew more than 63% for the first six months of 2022 to $218.4 million, up from $133.8 million for the first six months of 2021. Business line revenue for the 2022 first half, compared with the 2021 first half was as follows:

GAAP net loss for the first six months of 2022 was $11.7 million, or a loss of $0.72 per share, compared with a GAAP net loss of $5.5 million, or a loss of $0.40 per share, for the first six months of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA loss was $3.9 million, versus an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $4.3 million for the year-ago period.

Cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2022 were $19.5 million, compared with $37.8 million at December 31, 2021. The reduction in cash was attributed to investments in operations, technology, and acquisitions, as well as stock retired under the Company's share repurchase program.

For the year-to-date period ended June 30, 2022, Fathom purchased 686,097 shares of its common stock under the $10.0 million share repurchase program announced in mid-March 2022. The shares were purchased for a total of approximately $6.0 million. As of June 30, 2022, there was approximately $4.0 million remaining under the share repurchase authorization.

"With market conditions causing disruption in our industry, we are committed to reducing costs to ensure Fathom's ability to generate sustainable profits over the long-term," said Fathom President and CFO Marco Fregenal. "We believe Fathom has a long runway with solid growth prospects well into the future."

Second Quarter 2022 and Recent Highlights

  • Launched Veteran Division to provide specialized resources, support and opportunities for Fathom's current and former military service members, as well as for veteran home buyers and sellers, and those still on active duty.

  • Conducted inaugural Team Think Tank, bringing together agent team leaders from across the country to discuss strategies for successful future growth.

  • Operating in 38 states and the District of Columbia.

Guidance/Long-Term Targets
Fathom's guidance for the 2022 third quarter, and its updated guidance for the full year, assumes that the residential real estate market will continue to soften and that interest rates will remain at current levels or increase. The Company believes that if market conditions improve, it may generate results that are better than currently anticipated.

For the third quarter of 2022, Fathom expects total revenue in the range of $105 million to $110 million, and Adjusted EBITDA in the range of a loss of $1.6 million to a loss of $1.5 million.

For the 2022 full year, Fathom is now expecting revenue in the range of $425 million to $435 million. Adjusted EBITDA is now expected to range from a loss of $6.8 million to a loss of $6.6 million.

The Company reiterated that it believes it can generate Adjusted EBITDA exceeding $40.0 million per year at 100,000 to 110,000 annual transactions. While Fathom has not provided a timeline for reaching this target, the Company believes it can maintain transaction growth rates similar to those since its IPO over the long term.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
To supplement Fathom's consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to understand and evaluate our core operating performance. This non-GAAP financial measure, which may be different than similarly titled measures used by other companies, is presented to enhance investors' overall understanding of our financial performance and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Fathom defines the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), excluding other expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expense, and transaction-related cost.

Fathom believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information about the Company's financial performance, enhances the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects, and allows for greater transparency with respect to a key metric used by Fathom's management for financial and operational decision-making. Fathom believes that Adjusted EBITDA helps identify underlying trends in its business that otherwise could be masked by the effect of the expenses that the Company excludes in Adjusted EBITDA. In particular, Fathom believes the exclusion of share-based compensation expense related to restricted stock awards and stock options and transaction-related costs associated with the Company's acquisition activity provides a useful supplemental measure in evaluating the performance of its operations and provides better transparency into its results of operations. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes other income and expense, net which primarily includes nonrecurring items, such as, gain on debt extinguishment and severance costs, if applicable.

Fathom is presenting the non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA to assist investors in seeing its financial performance through the eyes of management, and because the Company believes this measure provides an additional tool for investors to use in comparing Fathom's core financial performance over multiple periods with other companies in its industry.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. There are a number of limitations related to the use of Adjusted EBITDA compared to net income (loss), the closest comparable GAAP measure. Some of these limitations are that:

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes share-based compensation expense related to restricted stock awards and stock options, which have been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, significant recurring expenses in Fathom's business and an important part of its compensation strategy;

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes transaction-related costs primarily consisting of professional fees and any other costs incurred directly related to acquisition activity, which is an ongoing part of Fathom's growth strategy and therefore likely to occur; and

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain recurring, non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization of property and equipment and capitalized software costs, however, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future.
