“We achieved another exceptional year of profitable organic growth in 2020 and our disruptive platform continues to attract increasingly high quality talent,” stated Mark E. Jones, Chairman and CEO. “These results, achieved in a year of unique and significant challenges, further demonstrate the strength and resiliency of our unique business model. We are extremely pleased to see the investments we made in 2019 and prior pay dividends in 2020, and we believe the significant investments in people and technology we made last year will fuel growth in 2021 and beyond. Our choice model, industry leading human capital, best in class service and proprietary technology provide what we believe to be an unmatched client, agent, and partner experience that we believe will allow us to continue to gain meaningful share in the U.S. personal lines market. Our entire Goosehead team remained relentlessly externally focused throughout 2020, and I want to thank them for their incredible enthusiasm, dedication and tireless efforts in delivering for our clients, partners, and shareholders.”

Fourth Quarter 2020 Results
For the fourth quarter of 2020, revenues were $34.7 million, an increase of 48% compared to 2019. Core Revenues, a non-GAAP measure which excludes contingent commissions and initial franchise fees, were $25.7 million, a 46% increase from $17.7 million in the prior year period. Core Revenues are the most reliable revenue stream for the Company, consisting of New Business Commissions, Agency Fees, New Business Royalty Fees, Renewal Commissions, and Renewal Royalty Fees. Core Revenue growth was driven by growth in corporate agents and operating franchises (which were driven by investments in our recruiting team in 2019 and prior), productivity improvements in the Franchise Channel, and continued high levels of retention. Total written premiums placed, which is a leading indicator of future revenue growth, grew 45% in the fourth quarter to $285 million, compared to $196 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $29.2 million, up 73% from $16.8 million in the prior-year period. The increase from the prior period was due to larger employee compensation and benefits expenses related to ongoing investments in our corporate agents, franchise sales team, and information systems developers. Significant outperformance from our corporate sales and recruiting teams during 2020 led to higher variable compensation for the year, primarily during the fourth quarter. Also, the Company continued to expand its real estate footprint and invest in our technology roadmap, with enhancements to our client-facing portal and numerous additional carrier integration projects, which grew the Company’s general and administrative expenses for the year. Finally, the Company continued its meaningful investment in its finance and accounting function to meet Sarbanes-Oxley requirements during the year.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $5.3 million.   Net income attributable to Goosehead Insurance, Inc. for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $2.8 million, or $0.15 per basic share and $0.14 per diluted share. Adjusted EPS for the fourth quarter of 2020, which excludes equity-based compensation, was $0.19 per share. Total Adjusted EBITDA was $7.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2020.

Full Year 2020 Results
For the full year ending December 31, 2020, revenues were $117.0 million, an increase of 51% compared to $77.5 million in 2019. Core Revenues for the full year 2020 were $95.1 million, a 41% increase from $67.6 million in 2019.

Net income for the full year ended December 31, 2020 was $18.8 million.   Net income attributable to Goosehead Insurance, Inc. was $9.3 million, or $0.55 per basic share and $0.51 per diluted share. Adjusted EPS, which excludes equity-based compensation, was $0.68 per share for the the full year 2020. Total Adjusted EBITDA was $27.8 million for the full year 2020, an increase of 59% from 2019, and Adjusted EBITDA margin was 24%.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of December 31, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $24.9 million and an unused line of credit of $19.7 million. Total outstanding term note payable balance was $78.5 million as of December 31, 2020.

2021 Outlook

The Company’s outlook for full year 2021 is as follows:

  • Total written premiums placed for 2021 are expected to be between $1.48 billion and $1.55 billion, representing organic growth of 38% on the low end of the range to 44% on the high end of the range.
  • Total revenues for 2021 are expected to be between $144 million and $155 million, representing organic growth of 23% on the low end of the range to 32% on the high end of the range. This assumes continued strong growth in Core Revenue partly offset by a challenging comparison on Ancillary Revenue from 2020.

Reconciliation Non-GAAP Measures to GAAP

This release includes Core Revenue, Cost Recovery Revenue, Ancillary Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EPS that are not required by, nor 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.
