DALLAS, May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wilhelmina International, Inc. (Nasdaq: WHLM) ("Wilhelmina" or the "Company") today reported revenues of $12.0 million and net income of $2.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to revenues of $14.6 million and net loss of $2.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. During the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic had a material impact on revenues. In recent months, the Company’s revenue has trended positively as the cities where it operates are reopening and COVID-19 vaccination rates increase. The net income in the three months ended March 31, 2021 included $1.9 million of Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) gain on forgiveness of loan and $0.4 million of employee retention credits. The net loss for the three months ended March, 31 2020, included a $0.8 million goodwill impairment charge and a $1.2 million valuation allowance on the Company’s deferred tax assets. COVID-19 Pandemic On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as a pandemic, which spread rapidly throughout the United States and the world. As the global impact of COVID-19 continues, Wilhelmina’s first priority has been to protect the health and safety of its employees and talent. To help mitigate the spread of the virus and in response to health advisories and governmental actions and regulations, the Company has modified its business practices and has implemented health and safety measures that are designed to protect employees and represented talent. The Company’s revenues are heavily dependent on the level of economic activity in the United States and the United Kingdom, particularly in the fashion, advertising and publishing industries, all of which have been negatively impacted by the pandemic and may not recover as quickly as other sectors of the economy. There have been mandates from federal, state, and local authorities requiring forced closures of non-essential businesses. As a result, beginning in March 2020, the Company saw a significant reduction in customer bookings, resulting in a negative impact to revenue and earnings. While bookings remain below pre-pandemic levels, during the second half of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021, bookings increased from the preceding months. In addition to reduced revenue, business operations have been adversely affected by reductions in productivity, limitations on the ability of customers to make timely payments, disruptions in talents’ ability to travel to needed locations, and supply chain disruptions impeding clothing or footwear wardrobe from reaching destinations for photoshoots and other bookings. Many of the Company’s customers are large retail and fashion companies, some of which have had to close stores in the United States and internationally due to the spread of COVID-19. Some of these customers have filed for bankruptcy and others may be unable to pay amounts already owed to the Company, resulting in increased future bad debt expense. These customers also may not emerge from the pandemic with the financial ability, or need, to purchase Wilhelmina’s services to the extent that they did in previous years. Some model talent have been quarantined far from the major cities where Wilhelmina’s offices are located, and also away from where most modeling jobs take place. Many U.S. and international airlines have decreased their flight schedules which, as economic activities resume and clients increase booking requests, may make it difficult for talent to be available when and where they are needed. The B.1.1.7 variant of the COVID-19 virus, which is believed to spread easily and quickly, has particularly impacted the United Kingdom, resulting in renewed strict lockdowns that have impacted Wilhelmina’s London operations. While these disruptions are currently expected to be temporary, there continues to be uncertainty around the duration. Postponed and cancelled bookings related to the pandemic contributed significantly to reduced revenues during the first three months of 2021. Although some clients increased activity and bookings recently, rising COVID-19 infection rates in cities where Wilhelmina operates could lead to a slower economic recovery in those markets, and possible additional business closings or local mandates that could slow the recovery in operations there. Since Wilhelmina extends customary payment terms to its clients, even as bookings resume, there is likely to be a lag in cash collections. In the meantime, the Company continues to have significant employee, office rent, and other expenses. Reduced outstanding accounts receivable available as collateral under the Company’s credit agreement with Amegy Bank has limited its access to additional financing. Net losses during 2020 also impacted compliance with the financial covenants under the Amegy Bank credit agreement, further impeding the Company’s ability to obtain additional financing. Since the pandemic began, many stock markets, including Nasdaq Capital Market where Wilhelmina’s common stock is listed, have been volatile. A decline in the Company’s stock price would reduce its market capitalization and could require additional goodwill or intangible asset impairment writedowns. The Company has taken the following actions to address the impact of COVID-19 and the current recessionary environment, in order to efficiently manage the business and maintain adequate liquidity and maximum flexibility: - In April 2020, obtained approximately $2.0 million in loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”). In 2021, the SBA communicated to the Company that these loans have been 100% forgiven. - Eliminated discretionary travel and entertainment expenses. - Suspended share repurchases. - Did not renew the leases on three New York City model apartments when the terms ended in June and August, 2020. - Did not renew the lease on the Company’s New York City office when the term ended in February 2021, and required all New York based staff to work remotely. - Suspended efforts to fill two highly compensated executive roles following the resignation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Vice President in early 2020. - Negotiated discounts with various vendors and service providers. - Effective July 1, 2020, implemented layoffs of approximately 36% of its staff, including employees at each of the Company’s five offices, and effected temporary salary reductions for the remaining staff. On December 27, 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (“CAA”) was signed into law. The CAA expanded eligibility for an employee retention credit for companies impacted by the pandemic with fewer than 500 employees and at least a 20% decline in gross receipts compared to the same quarter in 2019, to encourage retention of employees. This payroll tax credit is a refundable tax credit against certain employment taxes of up to $7 thousand per employee for eligible employers, equal to 70% of qualified wages paid to employees during a quarter, capped at $10 thousand of qualified wages per employee. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company recorded $0.4 million of Other Income for employee retention credit funds receivable. The CAA provides an election to use the prior quarter’s gross receipts for purposes of determining eligibility in the current quarter. The Company has elected to use the prior quarter election for determining eligibility and expects to continue to receive additional tax credits under the CAA for qualified wages through June 30, 2021. The Company has also benefitted from the CAA guidance to treat expenses associated with forgiven PPP loans as tax deductible. If the quarantines and limitations on non-essential work are re-implemented, or persist for an extended period, the Company may need to implement additional cost savings measures. BREXIT On January 31, 2020, the United Kingdom (“UK”) withdrew from the European Union (“EU”). Effective January 1, 2021, new visa requirements and other restrictions limit the freedom of movement for British workers to travel to the EU for work, which may impact the ability of the Company’s London office to book modeling photoshoots that take place in the European Union. It may also be more difficult, in the future, for talent represented by Wilhelmina London, but based in the EU, to travel to London and other parts of the UK for photoshoots and campaign work. New immigration sponsorship or visa requirements could discourage fashion brands, and other clients, from booking as frequently in London, which has historically been an international fashion and modeling hub, and could impact the revenue of the Company’s London operations. Financial Results Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $2.2 million, or $0.43 per fully diluted share, compared to net loss of $2.7 million, or $0.52 per fully diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Pre-Corporate EBITDA was $0.6 million and ($0.2) million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. The following table reconciles reported net income under generally accepted accounting principles to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Pre-Corporate EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.

Changes in net income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Pre-Corporate EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2021, when compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020, were primarily the result of the following: Revenues net of model costs for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased by 15.4% primarily due to reduced bookings resulting from COVID-19 (which impacted all three months of the first quarter of 2021, but only impacted the month of March in 2020), a decrease in core model bookings, and the closure of the hair and makeup artist division in the third quarter of 2020;Salaries and service costs for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased by 40.2% primarily due to staff layoffs and temporary salary reductions effective July 1, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 business environment as well as the closure of the hair and makeup artist division;Office and general expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased by 19.0%, primarily due to reduced rent expense, legal expense, and other office expenses;Amortization and depreciation expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased by 9.5%, primarily due to reduced depreciation of assets that became fully amortized in 2020; Non-recurring items included $1.9 million of gain on forgiveness of payroll protection program loan and $0.4 million of employee retention credit in the three months ended March 31, 2021 and a $0.8 million goodwill impairment charge in the three months ended March 31, 2020; andCorporate overhead expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased by 20.7%, primarily due to temporary reduction in fees paid to corporate employees and the Company’s directors.

The Company considers EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Pre-Corporate EBITDA to be important measures of performance because they: are key operating metrics of the Company's business;are used by management in its planning and budgeting processes and to monitor and evaluate its financial and operating results; andprovide stockholders and potential investors with a means to evaluate the Company's financial and operating results against other companies within the Company's industry. The Company's calculation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be consistent with similar calculations by other companies in the Company's industry. The Company calculates EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization expense. The Company calculates “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA plus foreign exchange gain/loss plus share-based payment expense and certain significant non-recurring items that the Company may include from time to time. For 2020, these non-recurring items represented goodwill impairments. For 2021, these non-recurring items represented Gain on forgiveness of loan and employee retention credit. The Company calculates “Pre-Corporate EBITDA” as Adjusted EBITDA plus corporate overhead expense, which includes director compensation, securities laws compliance costs, audit and professional fees, and other public company costs. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to net and operating income as an indicator of the Company's operating performance or cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Form 10-Q Filing Additional information concerning the Company's results of operations and financial position is included in the Company's Form 10-Q for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 12, 2021.

DALLAS, March 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wilhelmina International, Inc. (Nasdaq: WHLM) ("Wilhelmina" or the "Company") today reported revenues of $12.0 million and net income of $0.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to revenues of $18.3 million and net loss of $5.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, Wilhelmina reported revenues of $41.6 million and net loss of $4.9 million compared to revenue of $75.5 million and net loss of $4.8 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019. During the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic had a material impact on revenues. The decrease in revenues when compared to the same periods of the prior year was primarily due to postponement and cancellation of bookings by many of Wilhelmina’s customers while non-essential business activities were barred, or limited, in the cities where the Company operates, as well as the closure of the Wilhelmina Studios division in the fourth quarter of 2019 and the hair and makeup artist division in the second half of 2020. The increase in net income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was due to a reduction in operating expenses from the Company’s cost savings initiatives and absence of goodwill impairment expense, partially offset by lower revenue net of model costs. The increase in loss for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 was primarily due to the decrease in revenues net of model costs, partially offset by decreases in goodwill impairment expense and operating expenses. In the first quarter of 2020 and the fourth quarter of 2019, Wilhelmina recorded non-cash goodwill impairments charges of $0.8 million and $4.8 million, respectively, triggered by a sustained decline in share price of the Company’s common stock. COVID-19 Pandemic On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as a pandemic, which spread rapidly throughout the United States and the world. As the global impact of COVID-19 continues, Wilhelmina’s first priority has been to protect the health and safety of its employees and talent. To help mitigate the spread of the virus and in response to health advisories and governmental actions and regulations, the Company has modified its business practices and has implemented health and safety measures that are designed to protect employees and represented talent. The Company’s revenues are heavily dependent on the level of economic activity in the United States and the United Kingdom, particularly in the fashion, advertising and publishing industries, all of which have been negatively impacted by the pandemic and may not recover as quickly as other sectors of the economy. There have been mandates from federal, state, and local authorities requiring forced closures of non-essential businesses. As a result, beginning in March 2020, the Company saw a significant reduction in customer bookings, resulting in a negative impact to revenue and earnings. During the second half of 2020, bookings increased from the preceding months, but remained significantly below pre-pandemic levels. In addition to reduced revenue, business operations have been adversely affected by reductions in productivity, limitations on the ability of customers to make timely payments, disruptions in talents’ ability to travel to needed locations, and supply chain disruptions impeding clothing or footwear wardrobe from reaching destinations for photoshoots and other bookings. Many of the Company’s customers are large retail and fashion companies, some of which have had to close stores in the United States and internationally due to the spread of COVID-19. Some of these customers have filed for bankruptcy in 2020 and others may be unable to pay amounts already owed to the Company, resulting in increased future bad debt expense. These customers also may not emerge from the pandemic with the financial ability, or need, to purchase Wilhelmina’s services to the extent that they did in previous years. Some model talent have been quarantined with family far from the major cities where Wilhelmina’s offices are located, and also away from where most modeling jobs take place. Many U.S. and international airlines have decreased their flight schedules which, as economic activities resumes and clients increase booking requests, may make it difficult for talent to be available when and where they are needed. The B.1.1.7 variant of the COVID-19 virus, which is believed to spread easily and quickly, has particularly impacted the United Kingdom in recent months, resulting in renewed strict lockdowns that have impacted Wilhelmina’s London operations and are continuing into 2021. While these disruptions are currently expected to be temporary, there continues to be uncertainty around the duration. Postponed and cancelled bookings related to the pandemic contributed significantly to reduced revenues and increased operating losses during 2020. Although some clients increased activity and bookings during the second half of 2020, rising COVID-19 infection rates in cities where Wilhelmina operates could lead to a slower economic recovery in those markets, and possible additional business closings or local mandates that could slow the recovery in operations there. Since Wilhelmina extends customary payment terms to its clients, even as bookings resume, there is likely to be a lag before significant cash collections return. In the meantime, the Company continues to have significant employee, office rent, and other expenses. Reduced outstanding accounts receivable available as collateral under the Company’s credit agreement with Amegy Bank has limited its access to additional financing. Net losses in recent periods have also impacted compliance with the financial covenants under the Amegy Bank credit agreement, further impeding the Company’s ability to obtain additional financing. Since the pandemic began, many stock markets, including Nasdaq Capital Market where Wilhelmina’s common stock is listed, have been volatile. A further decline in the Company’s stock price would reduce its market capitalization and could require additional goodwill or intangible asset impairment writedowns. The Company has taken the following actions to address the impact of COVID-19 and the current recessionary environment, in order to efficiently manage the business and maintain adequate liquidity and maximum flexibility: -In April 2020, obtained approximately $2.0 million in loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”). -Eliminated discretionary travel and entertainment expenses. -Suspended share repurchases. -Did not renew the leases on three New York City model apartments when the terms ended in June and August, 2020. -Did not renew the lease on the Company’s New York City office, and required all New York based staff to work remotely. -Suspended efforts to fill two highly compensated executive roles following the resignation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Vice President in early 2020.Negotiated discounts with various vendors and service providers. -Effective July 1, 2020, implemented layoffs of approximately 36% of its staff, including employees at each of the Company’s five offices, and effected temporary salary reductions for the remaining staff. If the quarantines and limitations on non-essential work are re-implemented, or persist for an extended period, the Company may need to implement additional cost savings measures.

Changes in net income (loss), EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Pre-Corporate EBITDA for the three months and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, when compared to the three months and fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, were primarily the result of the following: Revenues net of model costs for the three months and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 decreased by 34.4% and 44.9% primarily due to postponed and cancelled bookings resulting from COVID-19, as well as the closure of the Wilhelmina Studios division in the fourth quarter of 2019 and the closure of the hair and makeup artist division in the second half of 2020; Salaries and service costs for the three months and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 decreased by 53.3% and 34.4% primarily due to employee layoffs in July 2020, temporary reductions in staff salaries, the closure of the Wilhelmina Studios division during the fourth quarter of 2019 and closure of the hair and makeup division in the second half of 2020, open positions for two executives that resigned in January 2020, and a reduction in share-based payment expense;Office and general expenses for the three months and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 decreased by 26.9% and 18.1%, primarily due to reduced rent expense, legal fees, computer expense, utilities, and other office expenses, partially offset by an increase in bad debt expense; Goodwill impairment of $0.8 million and $4.8 million, for the years ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, was recorded during the first quarter of 2020 and the fourth quarter of 2019, respectively; andCorporate overhead expenses for the three months and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 decreased by 3.9% and 14.5%, primarily due to lower corporate travel costs and temporary reductions in fees to the Company’s Board of Directors.

The Company considers EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Pre-Corporate EBITDA to be important measures of performance because they: are key operating metrics of the Company's business;are used by management in its planning and budgeting processes and to monitor and evaluate its financial and operating results; andprovide stockholders and potential investors with a means to evaluate the Company's financial and operating results against other companies within the Company's industry. The Company's calculation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be consistent with similar calculations by other companies in the Company's industry. The Company calculates EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization expense. The Company calculates “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA plus foreign exchange gain/loss, share-based payment expense and certain significant non-recurring items that the Company may include from time to time. For 2020, these non-recurring items represented goodwill impairments. The Company calculates “Pre-Corporate EBITDA” as Adjusted EBITDA plus corporate overhead expense, which includes director compensation, securities laws compliance costs, audit and professional fees, and other public company costs. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to net and operating income as an indicator of the Company's operating performance or cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
