Fathom Holdings Inc. Reports 39% Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth for 2020 Second Quarter

CARY, N.C., Aug. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Fathom Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: FTHM), a holding company that primarily operates through its wholly owned subsidiary, Fathom Realty, LLC, a national, cloud-based, technology-driven, residential real estate brokerage, today announced financial results for the 2020 second quarter and year-to-date period ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter Financial Results

Revenue for the 2020 second quarter increased 39% to $38.7 million, from $27.8 million for the prior-year period.  During the quarter, despite the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fathom completed 5,848 real estate transactions, an increase of 31% from 4,461 transactions during the same period last year.  Average revenue per transaction increased 6% to $6,615 from $6,230 for last year’s second quarter.  Fathom’s real estate agent network grew to 4,554 agents as of June 30, 2020, up 39% from 3,275 a year ago.

GAAP net income for the 2020 second quarter rose to $161,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $1.0 million, or a loss of $0.11 per share, for the second quarter of last year.  Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, totaled approximately $329,000 for the 2020 second quarter, versus an adjusted EBITDA loss of approximately $361,000 in the same period last year.  Fathom is providing adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, because it provides additional information for monitoring the Company’s performance.  A table providing a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to its most comparable GAAP measure, as well as an explanation of this non-GAAP measure, is included in the tables at the end of this press release.

“With 39% revenue growth, Fathom posted the highest revenue increase among all publicly traded residential real estate brokerages this quarter.  Even more impressive, that growth occurred before our IPO, and during an unforeseen pandemic.  Our results reflect Fathom’s steadfast commitment to serving our agents and our communities, with revenue growth being driven by an expanding agent network, a focus on increasing agent productivity, improving market conditions, and continued rising home prices, despite the pandemic,” said Fathom CEO Joshua Harley.  “While many companies were scrambling to shift their businesses to operate virtually due to COVID-19, we’ve been fortunate because we were already operating virtually.  I have confidence in knowing that Fathom was built to withstand a black swan event like this.

“Fathom is a different kind of residential real estate brokerage, and as a virtual company built on our proprietary technology platform, was founded to be a market disrupter.  Our ability to provide agents with a better commission structure helps them generate higher income and gives them the ability to invest in growing their businesses, while helping Fathom deliver increasing value to our stakeholders.”

First Half Financial Results

Total revenue for the first half of 2020 increased 47% to $67.5 million, from $45.9 million for the corresponding period of 2019.  GAAP net income for the first six months of 2020 was $118,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $2.5 million, or a loss of $0.26 per share, for the first six months of 2019.  Adjusted EBITDA totaled $465,000, versus an adjusted EBITDA loss of $883,000 in the year-ago period.

The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $1.5 million at June 30, 2020, up from $579,000 at December 31, 2019.  On August 4, 2020, Fathom completed an initial public offering of its common stock, which resulted in the issuance and sale of approximately 3.4 million shares at a public offering price of $10.00 per share, providing net proceeds to the Company of $31.3 million.

“Significant growth was generated in all of our key financial and operational metrics, and our recently completed IPO improved the Company’s balance sheet, providing us with the resources to drive future, sustainable growth,” added Fathom President and CFO Marco Fregenal.  “With a strong residential real estate market and a proven, scalable business model, we are excited to continue our mission of transforming the real estate industry.”

Note about Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to understand and evaluate its core operating performance.  This non-GAAP financial measure, which may be different than similarly titled measures used by other companies, is presented to enhance investors’ overall understanding of the Company’s financial performance and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Fathom defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), excluding other expense, net, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, and share-based compensation expense, including restricted stock and stock options.

Fathom believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information about the Company’s financial performance, enhances the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects, and allows for greater transparency with respect to a key metric used by management for financial and operational decision-making.  The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA helps identify underlying trends in its business that otherwise could be masked by the effect of the expenses excluded in Adjusted EBITDA.  In particular, Fathom believes the exclusion of share-based compensation expense related to restricted stock awards and stock options provides a useful supplemental measure in evaluating the performance of its operations and provides better transparency into its results of operations.

Adjusted EBITDA is being presented to assist investors in seeing the Company’s financial performance through the eyes of management, and because it believes this measure provides an additional tool for investors to use in comparing Fathom’s core financial performance over multiple periods with other companies in its industry.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.  There are a number of limitations related to the use of Adjusted EBITDA compared with net income (loss), the closest comparable GAAP measure, including:

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes share-based compensation expense related to restricted stock awards and stock options, which have been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, significant recurring expenses in the Company’s business and an important part of its compensation strategy; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain recurring, non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization of property and equipment and, although these are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future.
