Medley Management Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results

NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Medley Management Inc. (NYSE: MDLY) ("MDLY" or the "Company") today reported its financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2020. All share and per share results reflect the 1-for-10 reverse stock split which was effective on October 30, 2020.

Summary

  • Fee earning assets under management were $1.7 billion as of September 30, 2020
  • Total assets under management were $3.4 billion as of September 30, 2020
  • Total revenues were $8.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and $24.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020
  • U.S. GAAP net loss per share attributable to Medley Management Inc. was $0.19 for Q3 2020
  • Core Net Loss Per Share was $0.16 for Q3 2020

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2020

Total revenues were $8.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $11.5 million for the same period in 2019. Revenues consisted of $7.9 million of management fees and other revenue and $0.4 million of investment income. The decrease in total revenues was due primarily to lower base management fees as a result of a decrease in fee earning assets under management, which was mainly driven by a reduction in leverage and change in portfolio valuations.

Total expenses from operations were $7.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $12.5 million for the same period in 2019. The variance was attributed to a $3.1 million decrease in compensation and benefits expense and a$1.8 million decrease in general, administrative and other expenses. The decrease in compensation and benefits expense was primarily attributed to a decline in average headcount and decline in stock compensation expense. The decrease in other expenses was due primarily to a decrease in professional fees, primarily driven by lower costs associated with our terminated merger with Sierra Income Corporation ("Sierra"). General and administrative expenses also declined as a result of headcount reduction, employees working remotely and restrictions on travel and other expenses due to the impact of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

Total other expenses, net were $2.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and consisted of $2.5 million of interest expense and $0.2 million of other expenses. Total other expenses, net were $0.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and consisted of $2.9 million of interest expense, $1.8 million of other income and $0.2 million of dividend income. Of the $1.8 million of other income, $2.0 million relates to an unrealized gain on shares held of MCC. During the three months ended September 30, 2020, we did not hold any shares of MCC, resulting in no unrealized gains or losses recorded in the period.

Net loss attributable to Medley Management Inc. and non-controlling interests in Medley LLC was $1.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to a net loss of $3.3 million for the same period in 2019. Medley Management Inc.'s net loss per share was $0.19 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to a net loss per share of $0.86 for the same period in 2019.

Pre-Tax Core Net Loss was $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $0.9 million for the same period in 2019. Core Net Loss Per Share was $0.16 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $0.18 for the same period in 2019. Core EBITDA was $1.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $2.1 million for the same period in 2019.

Results of Operations for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020

Total revenues were $24.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $38.2 million for the same period in 2019. Revenues consisted of $26.1 million of management fees and other revenue and $1.3 million of investment loss. The decrease was due primarily to lower base management fees as a result of a decrease in fee earning assets under management, which was mainly driven by a decline in portfolio valuations, a reduction in leverage, and a decline in investment income due to equity losses and reversal of previously recorded carried interest.

Total expenses from operations were $28.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $34.8 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease was due primarily to a decline in compensation and benefits as a result of lower average headcount and discretionary bonuses, offset in part by an increase in professional fees. Included in total expenses are costs associated with our terminated merger of $3.5 million for each of the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019.

Total other expenses, net were $13.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and consisted of $8.0 million of interest expense and $5.6 million of other expenses, offset in part by $0.1 million of dividend income. Total other expenses, net were $8.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and consisted of $8.6 million of interest expense, $0.6 million of other expenses, offset by $0.9 million of dividend income. The increase of $5.6 million in other expenses was due primarily to the revaluation of our revenue share payable.

Net loss attributable to Medley Management Inc. and non-controlling interests in Medley LLC was $15.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $4.8 million for the same period in 2019. Medley Management Inc.'s net loss per share was $3.39 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $1.32 for the same period in 2019.

Pre-Tax Core Net Income (Loss) was $(11.7) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $0.7 million for the same period in 2019. Core Net Loss Per Share was $1.88 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, compared to Core Net Income Per Share of $0.13 for the same period in 2019. Core EBITDA was $(3.3) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $9.8 million for the same period in 2019.

(1)

Net Income Margin equals Net income (loss) attributable to Medley Management Inc. and non-controlling interests in
Medley LLC divided by total revenue.

(2)

Pre-Tax Core Net Income is calculated as Core Net Income before income taxes. Core Net Income reflects net income (loss)  
attributable to Medley Management Inc. and non-controlling interests in Medley LLC adjusted to exclude reimbursable
expenses associated with the launch of funds, stock-based compensation associated with restricted stock units that were
granted in connection with our IPO, non-recurring expenses associated with strategic initiatives, such as our terminated
merger with Sierra, other non-core items and the income tax expense associated with the foregoing adjustments. Please refer
to the reconciliation of Core Net Income to Net income (loss) attributable to Medley Management Inc. and non-controlling
interests in Medley LLC in Exhibit B for additional details.

(3)

Core EBITDA is calculated as Core Net Income before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Please
refer to the reconciliation of Core EBITDA to Net income (loss) attributable to Medley Management Inc. and non-controlling
interests in Medley LLC in Exhibit B for additional details.

(4)

Core Net Income Per Share is calculated as Core Net Income, adjusted for the income tax effect of assuming that all of our
pre-tax earnings were subject to federal, state and local corporate income taxes, divided by Pro-Forma Weighted Average
Shares Outstanding (as defined below). We assume that all of our pre-tax earnings are subject to federal, state and local
corporate income taxes. In determining corporate income taxes, we used a combined effective corporate tax rate of 44.0%
and 33.0% for 2020 and 2019, respectively. The rate differential in 2020 from 2019 is attributed to the tax benefit from the
CARES Act which allows for the current year carryback of net operating losses to years in which the Federal rate was 34.0%
rather than the current rate of 21.0%. Please refer to the calculation of Core Net Income Per Share in Exhibit C for additional
details.

(5)

Core Net Income Margin equals Core Net Income Per Share divided by total revenue per share.

(6)

The calculation of Pro-Forma Weighted Average Shares Outstanding assumes the conversion by the pre-IPO holders of up
to 2,673,516 and 2,631,658 vested and unvested LLC Units for 2,673,516 and 2,631,658 shares of Class A common stock at the beginning of each of the periods ended 2020 and 2019, respectively, as well as the vesting of the weighted average number of restricted stock units granted to employees and directors during each of the periods presented.

Total fee earning AUM increased by $13.0 million, or 0.8%, to $1.7 billion as of September 30, 2020 compared to June 30,

Total fee earning AUM decreased by $468.0 million, or 22%, to $1.7 billion as of September 30, 2020 compared to

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements included herein may contain "forward-looking statements." Statements other than statements of historical facts included in this press release may constitute forward-looking statements and are not guarantees of future performance or results and involve a number of assumptions, risks and uncertainties, which change over time. Actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in any forward-looking statements as a result of a number of factors, including those described from time to time in filings by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including those described in the section "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019. Except as required by law, the Company undertakes no duty to update any forward-looking statement made herein. All forward-looking statements made herein speak only as of the date of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We make reference to certain non-GAAP financial measures in this press release. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP is contained in the exhibits attached hereto.

Non-GAAP measures used by management include Pre-Tax Core Net Income (Loss), Core Net Income (Loss), Core EBITDA, Core Net Income (Loss) Per Share and Core Net Income Margin. Management believes that these measures provide analysts, investors and management with helpful information regarding our underlying operating performance and our business, as they remove the impact of items management believes are not reflective of underlying operating performance. These non-GAAP measures are also used by management for planning purposes, including the preparation of internal budgets; and for evaluating the effectiveness of operational strategies. Additionally, we believe these non-GAAP measures provide another tool for investors to use in comparing our results with other companies in our industry, many of whom use similar non-GAAP measures. There are limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as compared to the use of the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure and these measures supplement and should be considered in addition to and not in lieu of the results of operations discussed below. Furthermore, such measures may be inconsistent with measures presented by other companies.

This press release does not constitute an offer for any Medley fund.

The calculation of Pro-Forma Weighted Average Shares Outstanding assumes the conversion by the pre-IPO holders of up
to 2,673,516 and 2,631,658 vested and unvested LLC Units for 2,673,516 and 2,631,658 shares of Class A common stock at
the beginning of each of the periods ended 2020 and 2019, respectively, as well as the vesting of the weighted average
number of restricted stock units granted to employees and directors during each of the periods presented.

(2)

Assumes that all of our pre-tax earnings are subject to federal, state and local corporate income taxes. In determining
corporate income taxes, we used a combined effective corporate tax rate of 44.0% and 33.0% for 2020 and 2019, respectively.
The rate differential in 2020 from 2019 is attributed to the tax benefit from the CARES Act which allows for the current year
carryback of net operating losses to years in which the Federal rate was 34.0% rather than the current rate of 21.0%.
