(NYSE American: COHN), a financial services firm specializing in fixed income markets and, more recently, in SPAC markets, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

Adjusted pre-tax income was $37.6 million, or $7.52 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $23.8 million, or $4.64 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2020, and adjusted pre-tax loss of ($4.1) million, or ($1.04) per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) is not a measure recognized under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). See Note 1 below.Revenues during the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $36.3 million from the prior quarter and $84.9 million from the prior year quarter. The increase from the prior quarter was comprised primarily of (i) an increase of $1.1 million in net trading revenue primarily from increased revenue in the Company’s Gestation repo and Corporate trading groups, (ii) a decrease of $1.7 million in asset management revenue primarily related to an incentive allocation earned by the manager of the Company’s SPAC funds in the prior quarter, (iii) an increase of $0.1 million in new issue and advisory revenue related to European and U.S. insurance asset origination, and (iv) an increase of $36.8 million in principal transactions and other revenue primarily related to the closing of the Company’s second sponsored insurance SPAC, INSU Acquisition Corp. II, in February 2021, which generated $73.2 million of principal transactions revenue in the first quarter of 2021, partially offset by a reduction of $37.8 million in principal transactions revenue generated by the closing of the Company’s first sponsored insurance SPAC in the prior quarter. On February 9, 2021, INSU Acquisition Corp. II completed its merger with Metromile, Inc. (NASDAQ: MILE).The increase from the prior year quarter was comprised primarily of (i) an increase of $0.6 million in net trading revenue primarily from increased revenue in the Company’s Gestation repo group, (ii) an increase of $0.5 million in asset management revenue primarily related to an incentive allocation earned by the manager of the Company’s SPAC funds in the current quarter, (iii) an increase of $1.8 million in new issue and advisory revenue related to European and U.S. insurance asset origination, and (iv) an increase of $82.0 million in principal transactions and other revenue primarily related to the closing of the Company’s second sponsored insurance SPAC in February 2021, which generated $73.2 million of principal transactions revenue in the first quarter of 2021, as well as positive mark-to-market adjustments on some of the Company’s other principal investments. Compensation and benefits expense as a percentage of revenue was 26% for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to 35% for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 80% for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The number of Company employees was 98 as of March 31, 2021, compared to 87 as of December 31, 2020, and 95 as of March 31, 2020.Non-compensation operating expenses during the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $0.5 million from the prior quarter and $0.4 million from the prior year quarter. The increases from both the prior quarter and prior year quarter were due primarily to revenue-driven third-party marketing costs related to European origination revenue, as well as higher recruiting costs during the three months ended March 31, 2021. Interest expense during the three months ended March 31, 2021 was comparable to the prior quarter and decreased $0.6 million from the prior year quarter. The changes in quarterly interest expense are primarily driven by fluctuations in interest on redeemable financial instruments, which are driven by certain Company groups’ revenues and profits.Loss from equity method affiliates during the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $0.6 million from the prior quarter and $0.7 million from the prior year quarter. The loss from equity method affiliates is primarily driven by pre-business combination expenses incurred by the sponsored insurance SPACs that the Company has invested in. Income tax expense during the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $0.9 million, compared to an income tax benefit of $8.0 million in the prior quarter, and an income tax benefit of $0.4 million in the prior year quarter. The prior quarter’s income tax benefit was primarily the result of the reduction in the valuation allowance applied against the Company's net operating loss and net capital loss tax assets. The Company will continue to evaluate its operations on a quarterly basis and may make further adjustments to its valuation allowances going forward. Future adjustments could be material and could result in additional tax benefit or tax expense. As of March 31, 2021, total equity was $154.7 million, compared to $101.4 million as of December 31, 2020; the non-convertible non-controlling interest component of total equity was $45.0 million as of March 31, 2021 and $27.8 million as of December 31, 2020. Thus, the total equity excluding the non-convertible non-controlling interest component was $109.7 million as of March 31, 2021, a $36.1 million increase from $73.6 million at December 31, 2020. Lester Brafman, Chief Executive Officer of Cohen & Company, said, “We are pleased with our first quarter results as our strategic initiatives continue to generate strong returns. In the first quarter, our net trading revenue was $19.2 million thanks to strong performance from our Mortgage, Repo, and Corporate trading groups, and our Gestation Repo book grew to $4.1 billion, up from $3.3 billion at the end of 2020. Also in the quarter, our second company-sponsored SPAC, INSU Acquisition Corp. II, completed its merger with Metromile, a digital insurance platform and pay-by-mile auto insurer, contributing $33.4 million to our adjusted pre-tax income.” Brafman continued, “We were excited to announce the hiring of several top investment bankers with broad experience in M&A advisory, private capital markets, equity capital markets and PIPE transactions. We expect that this added expertise will create another source of revenue, complement the continued growth of our SPAC franchise, and contribute to our overall operating leverage. Looking ahead, we are excited to build on our momentum as we grow our business while remaining committed to executing on our strategic priorities, with a continued focus on proactively managing our risk and capital structure, and on enhancing stockholder value.” Conference Call The Company will host a conference call at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time (ET), today, May 6, 2021, to discuss these results.

Forward-looking Statements This communication contains certain statements, estimates, and forecasts with respect to future performance and events. These statements, estimates, and forecasts are “forward-looking statements.” In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “might,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential,” “seek,” or “continue” or the negatives thereof or variations thereon or similar terminology. All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this communication are forward-looking statements and are based on various underlying assumptions and expectations and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and assumptions, and may include projections of our future financial performance based on our growth strategies and anticipated trends in our business. These statements are based on our current expectations and projections about future events. There are important factors that could cause our actual results, level of activity, performance, or achievements to differ materially from the results, level of activity, performance, or achievements expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements including, but not limited to, those discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition” in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), which are available at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov and our website at www.cohenandcompany.com/investor-relations/sec-filings. Such risk factors include the following: (a) a decline in general economic conditions or the global financial markets, (b) losses caused by financial or other problems experienced by third parties, (c) losses due to unidentified or unanticipated risks, (d) a lack of liquidity, i.e., ready access to funds for use in our businesses, (e) the ability to attract and retain personnel, (f) litigation and regulatory issues, (g) competitive pressure, (h) an inability to generate incremental income from new or expanded businesses, (i) unanticipated market closures or effects due to inclement weather or other disasters, (j) losses (whether realized or unrealized) on our principal investments, including on our CLO investments, (k) the possibility that payments to the Company of subordinated management fees from its CDOs will continue to be deferred or will be discontinued, (l) the possibility that the stockholder rights plan may fail to preserve the value of the Company’s deferred tax assets, whether as a result of the acquisition by a person of 5% of the Company’s common stock or otherwise, (m) the possibility that Insurance SPAC III does not successfully consummate an Insurance SPAC III Business Combination, (n) a reduction in the volume of investments into SPACs; (o) the value of our holdings of founders shares in Shift and Metromile may decline and the possibility that significant portions of the founder shares may remain restricted for a long period of time; and (p) the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, there can be no assurance that the forward-looking statements included in this communication will prove to be accurate or correct. In light of these risks, uncertainties, and assumptions, the future performance or events described in the forward-looking statements in this communication might not occur. Accordingly, you should not rely upon forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results and we do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Cautionary Note Regarding Quarterly Financial Results Due to the nature of our business, our revenue and operating results may fluctuate materially from quarter to quarter. Accordingly, revenue and net income in any particular quarter may not be indicative of future results. Further, our employee compensation arrangements are in large part incentive-based and, therefore, will fluctuate with revenue. The amount of compensation expense recognized in any one quarter may not be indicative of such expense in future periods. As a result, we suggest that annual results may be the most meaningful gauge for investors in evaluating our business performance. COHEN & COMPANY INC.

Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) represents net income (loss) attributable to Cohen & Company Inc., computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding impairment of goodwill and income tax expense (benefit), plus the net income (loss) attributable to the convertible non-controlling interest. Impairment of goodwill has been excluded from adjusted pre-tax income (loss) because it is a non-recurring, non-cash item. Income tax expense (benefit) has been excluded because a pre-tax measurement of enterprise earnings that includes net income (loss) attributable to the convertible non-controlling interest is a useful and appropriate measure of performance. Furthermore, our income tax expense (benefit) has been, and we expect it will continue to be, a substantially non-cash item for the foreseeable future, generated from adjustments in our valuation allowance applied to the Company’s gross deferred tax assets. Convertible non-controlling interest is added back to adjusted pre-tax income because the underlying Cohen & Company, LLC equity units are convertible into Cohen & Company Inc. shares. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) per diluted share is calculated, by dividing adjusted pre-tax income (loss) by diluted shares outstanding, both of which include adjustments used in the corresponding calculation in accordance with GAAP. We present adjusted pre-tax income (loss) and related per diluted share amounts in this release because we consider them to be useful and appropriate supplemental measures of our performance. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) and related per diluted share amounts help us to evaluate our performance without the effects of certain GAAP calculations that may not have a direct cash or recurring impact on our current operating performance. In addition, our management uses adjusted pre-tax income (loss) and related per diluted share amounts to evaluate the performance of our enterprise operations. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) and related per diluted share amounts, as we define them, are not necessarily comparable to similarly named measures of other companies and may not be appropriate measures for performance relative to other companies. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) should not be assessed in isolation from or construed as a substitute for net income (loss) prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) is not intended to represent and should not be considered to be a more meaningful measure than, or an alternative to, measures of operating performance as determined in accordance with GAAP.
