(1) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are commonly used non-GAAP financial measures utilized by management as a supplemental tool to evaluate the underlying operating performance of the Company on an ongoing basis and should be considered together with Heritage Global’s GAAP financial measures. Definitions and disclosures regarding non-GAAP financial information including reconciliations are included at the end of the press release.

Heritage Global Chief Executive Officer Ross Dove commented, “2024 is off to a solid start with continued profitability in the business. Our financial division is executing well and benefiting from heightened economic pressures driving increases in charged-off credit cards and non-performing loans. Our industrial division continues to see healthy levels of equipment and asset auction activity, but faced a tough comparison in the quarter given a large auction that took place in the first quarter of 2023. Importantly, subsequent to the close of the first quarter, our auction division, in conjunction with our partners, completed a highly accretive transaction involving the sale of equipment and a 10-year building lease on the recently acquired pharmaceutical plant in Fenton, Missouri.

“Looking forward, the pipeline is strong across our businesses and we look forward to continuing to drive long term organic growth and profitability. Additionally, M&A is a strategic focus as we move forward and we are seeing increased opportunities in the markets we serve,” Mr. Dove concluded.

First Quarter 2024 Highlights:

  • The Company achieved operating income of $2.6 million for the first quarter of 2024, as compared to operating income of $3.9 million in the first quarter of 2023.
  • EBITDA totaled $2.7 million in the first quarter of 2024 versus EBITDA of $4.0 million in the first quarter of 2023 and Adjusted EBITDA was $2.9 million compared to $4.2 million in the prior-year quarter.
  • Net income totaled $1.8 million or $0.05 of diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2024, as compared to net income of $2.8 million or $0.08 of diluted earnings per share in the prior-year quarter.
  • The Company strengthened its balance sheet by increasing stockholders’ equity to $63.0 million as of March 31, 2024, compared to $61.1 million as of December 31, 2023, and increased net working capital to $15.0 million at the end of the first quarter of 2024, compared to $11.6 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2023. The Company’s available and unused balance on its credit facility remains at $10.0 million as of March 31, 2024. The strengthened balance sheet and liquidity positions the Company well to pursue its M&A strategy.
  • As of March 31, 2024, the Company held a gross balance of investments in notes receivable of $37.3 million, recorded in both notes receivable and equity method investments.

Definitions and Disclosures Regarding non-GAAP Financial Information

The Company defines EBITDA as net income/loss plus depreciation and amortization, interest and other expense, and provision for income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA reflects EBITDA adjusted further to eliminate the effects of stock-based compensation. Management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in assessing the Company’s results, evaluating the Company’s performance and in reaching operating and strategic decisions. Management believes that the presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, when considered together with our GAAP financial statements and the reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is useful in providing investors a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the underlying performance of the Company on a historical and ongoing basis. The Company’s use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is not meant to be, and should not be, considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, any GAAP financial measure. You should carefully evaluate the financial information, below, which reconciles our GAAP reported net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented (in thousands).
