  • Net income attributable to Goosehead Insurance, Inc. of $1.8 million or $0.12 per basic share and $0.11 per diluted share.
  • Adjusted EPS* of $0.13 per share includes a $0.06 per share benefit from the application ASC 606. If reported under ASC 605 Adjusted EPS would have been $0.07.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* increased 224% from the prior year to $7.5 million, or 32% of revenues. If reported under ASC 605, Adjusted EBITDA would have risen 81% to $4.2 million, or 20% of revenues.
  • Total written premiums placed increased 45% from the prior-year period to $196 million.
  • Policies in force grew 44% from the prior-year period to 482,000.
  • Corporate sales headcount of 248 was up 49% year-over-year.
  • Total franchises increased 47% compared to the prior year period to 948; total operating franchises grew 34% compared to the prior-year period to 614.

*Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP measures. Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income and basic earnings per share to Adjusted EPS, the most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP are set forth in the reconciliation table accompanying this release.

“2019 was yet another year of strong performance at Goosehead,” stated Mark E. Jones, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Goosehead.  “We continued to invest in both people and technology to enhance our already significant competitive advantage and keep us well-positioned for sustained strong levels of future growth. Our results continue to validate that we have built a unique and powerful platform that allows our sales agents to significantly outproduce the industry and enables our service team to deliver world-class service for our clients, as evidenced in our high client retention of 88% and unmatched net promoter score of 89. In addition to our impressive top line results for the year, we also delivered strong growth in net income and Adjusted EBITDA. Additionally, we experienced expansion in Adjusted EBITDA Margin, if reported under ASC 605 accounting. The changes to our revenue under ASC 606 have no effect on the economics of our business, as evidenced by cash flow from operations of $21.2 million, an increase of 107% over the prior year."

“Our mix of business continued to proportionately shift towards the Franchise Channel, which is becoming an increasingly larger driver of premium. We believe that over time, the premium in the Franchise Channel will generate increased levels of currently-embedded growth in revenue and Adjusted EBITDA as new business converts into higher revenue and higher margin renewal business. As a reminder, the Franchise Channel experiences a lag between written premium and revenue growth, as it receives 20% of the first term policy revenues but 50% of renewal revenue. The shift towards Franchise Channel premium growth is being aided by investments and support from our Corporate Channel.”

“Looking ahead to 2020 and beyond, we intend to make continuous investments in both people and technology, which we believe will position us to sustain high levels of premium and revenue growth for years to come. While our business has mechanical operating leverage and longer-term margin improvement potential, strategically we remain focused on delivering significant revenue expansion and strong overall earnings growth over time. We will continue to operate Goosehead with a focus on maximizing earnings over the long term,” concluded Mr. Jones.

Fourth Quarter 2019 Results
For the fourth quarter of 2019, revenues were $23.4 million, a 59% increase from $14.7 million in the prior-year period. If reported under ASC 605, total revenue would have grown 39% to $20.4 million. Core Revenues, which exclude contingent commissions and initial franchise fees, were $17.7 million, a 35% increase from $13.1 million in the prior year period. If reported under ASC 605, Core Revenues would have grown 36% to $17.8 million. Core Revenues refer to the most predictable revenue stream for the Company, consisting of New Business Commissions, Agency Fees, New Business Royalty Fees, Renewal Commissions and Renewal Royalty Fees. Core Revenues were driven by growth in sales agents and productivity improvements, combined with continued high levels of retention. Total written premiums placed, which is a good indicator of future revenue growth, grew 45% in the fourth quarter to $196 million, compared to $135 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2019 were $16.8 million, up 28% from $13.2 million in the prior-year period, primarily due to larger employee compensation and benefit expenses related to continued investment in corporate agents and recruiting headcount and the number of operating franchises, investments in technology, as well as higher general and administrative expenses, including public company costs.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2019 grew 786% to $5.3 million, compared to net income of $0.6 million in the prior-year period.  If reported under ASC 605 net income for the fourth quarter of 2019 would have grown 302% to $2.4 million. Net income attributable to Goosehead Insurance, Inc. for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $1.8 million, or $0.12 per basic and $0.11 per diluted share.  Adjusted EPS for the fourth quarter of 2019, which excludes equity-based compensation, was $0.13 per share. If reported under ASC 605, Adjusted EPS for the fourth quarter of 2019 would have been $0.07 per share.

Total Adjusted EBITDA grew by 224% to $7.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $2.3 million in the prior year period. If reported under ASC 605, EBITDA would have grown 81% to $4.2 million. Total Adjusted EBITDA Margin was 32%, compared to 16% in the prior-year period. If reported under ASC 605, Adjusted EBITDA Margin in the fourth quarter of 2019 would have been 20%.

Full Year 2019 Results
For the full year ended December 31, 2019, revenues grew 29% to $77.5 million, compared to $60.1 million in the prior year.  If reported under ASC 605, revenues grew 40% to $84.1 million. Core Revenues for the full year were $67.6 million, up 36% compared to a year ago, with growth driven by increases in sales agents and productivity, combined with continued high levels of retention.

Net income for the full year increased by $29.0 million from 2018 to $10.4 million.  If reported under ASC 605, net income would have increased $34.0 million to $15.3 million. The net loss for the full year ended December 31, 2018 included equity-based compensation costs of $26.1 million related to one-time vesting of historical Class B LLC units as part of the Company’s Initial Public Offering ("IPO").

Total Adjusted EBITDA rose 19% for the full year ended December 31, 2019 to $17.5 million, from $14.8 million in the prior year.  If reported under ASC 605 total Adjusted EBITDA would have grown 55% to $22.9 million. Total Adjusted EBITDA Margin for the full year ended December 31, 2019 was 23%. If reported under ASC 605, Adjusted EBITDA Margin for the full year 2019 would have been 27%, up 274 basis points from the prior year driven by higher margin renewal revenue and higher contingent commissions,  partially offset by additional employee compensation and benefits from increased hiring, increases in the number of operating franchises, as well as significant investment in technology to benefit corporate and franchise employee productivity to facilitate future growth.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of December 31, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $14.3 million, an unused line of credit of $2.7 million, and outstanding notes payable of $46.5 million on its balance sheet. In order to maintain an efficient capital structure, on March 6, 2020, the Company borrowed an additional $38.5 million, bringing the total debt as of the date of this release to $85.0 million, plus an additional $19.7 million of unused line of credit.

2020 Outlook
The Company's outlook for the full year 2020 is as follows:

  • Total written premiums placed for 2020 are expected to be between $975 million and $1.035 billion, representing organic growth of 32% on the low end of the range to 40% on the high end of the range.
  • Total revenues for 2020 under ASC 606 revenue accounting are expected to be between $100 million and $105 million, representing organic growth of 29% on the low end of the range to 36% on the high end of the range.
  • While the Company does not provide bottom line guidance, it expects ongoing investments in people and technology, as well as certain one-time investments in our accounting processes and additional public company expenses to have a moderating effect on margin improvement in 2020.
  • To date, our business has been unaffected by uncertainty surrounding the impact of the coronavirus. While the underlying demand for homeowners and auto insurance is stable, management is taking actions it considers prudent to minimize impacts on our operations should conditions change.

Reconciliation of Core Revenue, Cost Recovery Revenue, Ancillary Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EPS to Net Income

This release includes Core Revenue, Cost Recovery Revenue, Ancillary Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EPS that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). The Company refers to these measures as “non-GAAP financial measures.” The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures when planning, monitoring and evaluating its performance and considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be useful metrics for management and investors to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period by excluding potential differences caused by variations in capital structures, tax position, depreciation, amortization and certain other items that the Company believes are not representative of its core business. The Company uses Core Revenue, Cost Recovery Revenue, Ancillary Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EPS for business planning purposes and in measuring its performance relative to that of its competitors.

These non-GAAP financial measures are defined by the Company as follows:

  • "Core Revenue" is a supplemental measure of our performance and includes Renewal Commissions, Renewal Royalty Fees, New Business Commissions, New Business Royalty Fees, and Agency Fees. We believe that Core Revenue is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it summarizes all of our revenues from sales of individual insurance policies.
  • "Cost Recovery Revenue" is a supplemental measure of our performance and includes Initial Franchise Fees and Interest Income. We believe that Cost Recovery Revenue is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it summarizes revenues that are viewed by management as cost recovery mechanisms.
  • "Ancillary Revenue" is a supplemental measure of our performance and includes Contingent Commissions and Other Income. We believe that Ancillary Revenue is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it summarizes revenues that are ancillary to our core business.
  • "Adjusted EBITDA" is a supplemental measure of the Company's performance. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it eliminates the impact of items that do not relate to business performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (the most directly comparable GAAP measure) before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted to exclude equity-based compensation and other non-operating items, including, among other things, certain non-cash charges and certain non-recurring or non-operating gains or losses.
  • "Adjusted EBITDA Margin" is Adjusted EBITDA as defined above, divided by total revenue excluding other non-operating items. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is helpful in measuring profitability of operations on a consolidated level.
  • "Adjusted EPS" is a supplemental measure of our performance, defined as earnings per share (the most directly comparable GAAP measure) before non-recurring or non-operating income and expenses. Adjusted EPS is a useful measure to management because it eliminates the impact of items that do not relate to business performance and helps measure our profitability on a consolidated level.

While the Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating its business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant as a substitute for revenues, net income, or earnings per share, in each case as recognized in accordance with GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in the Company’s industry, may calculate such measures differently, which reduces their usefulness as comparative measures.

The following tables show a reconciliation from total revenues to Core Revenue, Cost Recovery Revenue, and Ancillary Revenue (non-GAAP basis) for the full years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 (in thousands, except per share amounts). Note that totals may not sum due to rounding:

The following tables show a reconciliation from net income to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin (non-GAAP basis) for the full years and three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 (in thousands, except per share amounts). Note that totals may not sum due to rounding:

  Full Year Ended December 31,
(in thousands) 2019 (ASC 606) 2019 (ASC 605)   2018 (ASC 605)
