Net Income of $18.3 Million, or $0.49 Per Diluted Share

Adjusted Net Income of $0.46 Per Diluted Share, a 12% Increase from Last Year

Adjusted EBITDA of $23.3 Million, a 9% Increase from Last Year

Total AUM Grows to $33.4 Billion, with Managed Private Real Estate Capital AUM Growing to $3.2 Billion

NEWTON, Mass., January 27, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The RMR Group Inc. (Nasdaq: RMR) today announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2021.

Adam Portnoy, President and Chief Executive Officer, made the following statement regarding the first quarter fiscal 2022 results:

"During the first fiscal quarter, RMR reported management and advisory services revenues of $46.0 million, an increase of 11% from last year, despite the continued impact of COVID-19 variants across many aspects of our clients’ businesses. Similarly, adjusted earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA increased 12% and 9%, respectively, over the prior year. This growth was driven primarily by increases in the enterprise values of our Managed Equity REITs, the expanded scale of Sonesta leading to greater business management fees and increased client redevelopment activities leading to higher construction management fees.

"This quarter, RMR made significant progress in growing its private capital assets under management, announcing approximately $1.9 billion of private capital transactions. In addition, the pending Monmouth industrial real estate transaction valued at approximately $4.0 billion is expected to be partly funded with private capital raised from large institutional joint venture partners. Not only do these transactions grow RMR’s assets under management, but they also highlight RMR’s alignment with our clients’ shareholders by expanding their access to capital and growth opportunities with high quality assets.

"With over $181 million of cash and no debt, we remain well positioned to pursue a range of capital allocation strategies, with a primary focus on driving private capital growth across the platform."

First Quarter Fiscal 2022 Highlights:

  • As of December 31, 2021, The RMR Group LLC had $33.4 billion of assets under management, or AUM, compared to $32.1 billion as of December 31, 2020.

  • Total management and advisory services revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2021 were $46.0 million, compared to $41.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020.

Reconciliations to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP:

Adjusted net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc., EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EBITDA less Cash Tax Obligation are non-GAAP financial measures. The GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to adjusted net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. is net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. The GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA less Cash Tax Obligation is net income and the GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA Margin is Operating Margin, which represents operating income divided by total management and advisory services revenues. Reconciliations of net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. determined in accordance with GAAP to adjusted net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc., and of net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, as well as calculations of Operating Margin, Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EBITDA less Cash Tax Obligation for each of the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 are presented later in this press release.

Assets Under Management:

The calculation of AUM primarily includes: (i) the historical cost of real estate and related assets, excluding depreciation, amortization, impairment charges or other non-cash reserves, of the Managed Equity REITs and the Managed Private Real Estate Capital clients, plus (ii) the gross book value of real estate assets, property and equipment of the Managed Operating Companies, excluding depreciation, amortization, impairment charges or other non-cash reserves, plus (iii) the carrying value of loans held for investment at SEVN. Upon deconsolidation from a Managed Equity REIT, the respective real estate and related assets are characterized as Managed Private Real Estate Capital and their historical cost represents the fair value of the real estate at the time of deconsolidation.

All references in this press release to AUM on, or as of, a date are calculated at a point in time.

For additional information on the calculation of AUM for purposes of the fee provisions of the business management agreements, see The RMR Group Inc.’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC. The RMR Group Inc.’s SEC filings are available at the SEC website: www.sec.gov.

The RMR Group Inc. calculates earnings per share, or EPS, using the two-class method. As such, earnings attributable to unvested participating shares are excluded from earnings before calculating per share amounts. In addition, diluted EPS includes the assumed issuance of Class A Common Shares pursuant to The RMR Group Inc.’s equity compensation plan and the issuance of Class A Common Shares related to the assumed redemption of the noncontrolling interest’s 15,000 Class A Units using the if-converted method. In computing the dilutive effect, if any, that the aforementioned redemption would have on EPS, The RMR Group Inc. considered that net income available to holders of Class A Common Shares would increase due to elimination of the noncontrolling interest offset by any tax effect, which may be dilutive. For the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the assumed redemption is dilutive to earnings per share as presented in the table below. The calculation of basic and diluted EPS is as follows:

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures calculated as presented in the tables above. The RMR Group Inc. considers EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin to be appropriate supplemental measures of its operating performance, along with net income, net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc., operating income and operating margin. The RMR Group Inc. believes that EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain amounts, such as those outlined in the tables above, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may facilitate a comparison of current operating performance with The RMR Group Inc.’s historical operating performance and with the performance of other asset management businesses. In addition, The RMR Group Inc. believes that providing Adjusted EBITDA Margin may help investors assess The RMR Group Inc.’s performance of its business by providing the margin that Adjusted EBITDA represents to its contractual management and advisory fees (excluding incentive business management fees, if any). EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc., operating income or operating margin as an indicator of The RMR Group Inc.’s financial performance or as a measure of The RMR Group Inc.’s liquidity. Other asset management businesses may calculate EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin differently than The RMR Group Inc. does.

Adjusted EBITDA less Cash Tax Obligation is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated as presented in the table above. The RMR Group Inc. considers Adjusted EBITDA less Cash Tax Obligation to be an appropriate measure of its operating performance, along with net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. The RMR Group Inc. believes that Adjusted EBITDA less Cash Tax Obligation provides useful information to investors because by excluding amounts payable for tax obligations, it increases comparability between periods and more accurately reflects earnings that may be available for distribution to shareholders. Adjusted EBITDA less Cash Tax Obligation is among the factors The RMR Group Inc.’s Board of Directors considers when determining the amount of dividends to its shareholders. Other asset management businesses may calculate Adjusted EBITDA less Cash Tax Obligation differently than The RMR Group Inc. does.

(3)

Contractual management and advisory fees are the base business management fees, property management fees and advisory fees The RMR Group Inc. or its subsidiaries earns pursuant to its management agreements. These amounts are calculated pursuant to the contractual formulas and do not deduct other asset amortization of $2,354 for each of the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, required to be recognized as a reduction to management services revenues in accordance with GAAP.

Under the RMR LLC operating agreement, RMR LLC is required to make quarterly pro rata cash distributions to The RMR Group Inc. and its noncontrolling interest based on each’s estimated tax liabilities and respective ownership percentages. Estimated tax liabilities are determined quarterly on a cumulative basis. As such, there may be fluctuations from quarter to quarter to account for prior periods where pro rata cash distributions were more or less than amounts determined cumulatively through a particular quarter. For the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, RMR LLC made required quarterly tax distributions as follows:

WARNING CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other securities laws. Forward-looking statements can be identified by use of words such as "outlook," "believe," "expect," "potential," "will," "may," "estimate," "anticipate" and derivatives or negatives of such words or similar words. Forward-looking statements in this press release are based upon present beliefs or expectations. However, forward-looking statements and their implications are not guaranteed to occur and may not occur for various reasons, including some reasons beyond The RMR Group Inc.’s control. For example:

  • Mr. Portnoy states that during the first fiscal quarter, management and advisory services revenues of $46.0 million increased 11% from last year, despite the continued impact of COVID-19 variants across many aspects of The RMR Group Inc.’s clients’ businesses. Mr. Portnoy also states that similarly, adjusted earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA increased 12% and 9%, respectively, over the prior year, and that this growth was driven primarily by increases in the enterprise values of its Managed Equity REITs, the expanded scale of Sonesta leading to greater business management fees and increased client redevelopment activities leading to higher construction management fees. These statements may imply that The RMR Group Inc. will continue to earn increased management and advisory services revenues, adjusted earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA in the future. However, The RMR Group Inc.’s and its clients’ businesses are subject to various risks, including risks outside its and their control. Further, the impact and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic is not known and economic conditions could deteriorate for a prolonged period and negatively impact The RMR Group Inc.’s and its clients’ businesses operating and financial results;

  • Mr. Portnoy states that this quarter, The RMR Group Inc. has made significant progress in growing its private capital assets under management, announcing approximately $1.9 billion of private capital transactions. In addition, Mr. Portnoy states that the pending Monmouth industrial real estate transaction valued at approximately $4.0 billion is expected to be partly funded with private capital raised from large institutional joint venture partners. Mr. Portnoy also states that not only do these transactions grow The RMR Group Inc.’s assets under management, but they also highlight its alignment with its clients’ shareholders by expanding their access to capital and growth opportunities with high quality assets. These statements may imply that the $1.9 billion of private capital transactions will be successful and that they will benefit those companies and The RMR Group Inc. as a result. However, these transactions may not be successful and the fees earned from clients may decline or not meet expectations as a result. In addition, the pending Monmouth transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including shareholder approval. There can be no assurance that the acquisition will close on the current terms, anticipated timing or at all, or that the transaction will be partly funded with private capital raised from large institutional joint venture partners as expected. Further, there can be no assurance that these transactions will grow The RMR Group Inc.’s assets under management or highlight The RMR Group Inc.’s alignment with its clients’ shareholders by expanding their access to capital and growth opportunities with high quality assets; and

  • Mr. Portnoy states that The RMR Group Inc. has over $181 million of cash and no debt, and that it remains well positioned to pursue a range of capital allocation strategies, with a primary focus on driving private capital growth across the platform. This statement may imply that The RMR Group Inc. will successfully identify and execute one or more capital allocation strategies, including continued growth of its private capital business, and that any capital allocation strategy it may pursue will be successful and benefit it and its shareholders. However, identifying and executing on capital allocation strategies are subject to various uncertainties and risks and any benefits that may be realized may take an extended period to be realized. In addition, The RMR Group Inc. may elect to not continue pursuing a capital allocation strategy or abandon any such strategy it may pursue.

The information contained in The RMR Group Inc.’s filings with the SEC, including under the caption "Risk Factors" in The RMR Group Inc.’s periodic reports, or incorporated therein, identifies important factors that could cause differences from the forward-looking statements in this press release. The RMR Group Inc.’s filings with the SEC are available on its website and at www.sec.gov.

You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

Except as required by law, The RMR Group Inc. undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
