(“Goosehead” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: GSHD), a rapidly growing independent personal lines insurance agency, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Reconciliations of Core Revenue to total revenues, Adjusted EBITDA to net income and Adjusted EPS to basic earnings per share, the most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, are set forth in the reconciliation table accompanying this release. “We continue to deliver very strong and consistent growth in a macro environment that has remained challenging. In the first quarter we produced total and core revenue growth rates that exceeded fourth quarter 2021 levels, premium growth near the high end of our full year guidance range, solid headcount growth, and improved margin excluding contingents,” stated Mark E. Jones, Chairman and CEO. “I was very pleased to see meaningful sequential improvement in our franchise agent productivity versus the fourth quarter despite a tough comparison and more challenging real estate environment. Additionally, our overall renewal book continues to perform exceptionally well with client retention of 89% helping to drive our consistent growth. These results are a validation of our unique, resilient, and nimble platform. We were also very excited to have recently launched our first carrier for full quote to issue on the Digital Agent and expect to have others on the platform by the end of this year. We believe there is nothing like the Digital Agent shopping experience in the marketplace and we feel long term growth potential from this tool is outstanding. Our runway in the marketplace remains enormous and we are well positioned to deliver strong revenue and earnings growth for many years through varying economic cycles. I want to thank our people for their dedicated efforts in continuing to expand our sizable competitive moat as we deliver for our clients, business partners, and shareholders.” First Quarter 2022 Results For the first quarter of 2022, revenues were $41.3 million, an increase of 32% compared to the corresponding period in 2021. Core Revenues, a non-GAAP measure which excludes contingent commissions, initial franchise fees, interest income, and other income, were $36.5 million, a 37% increase from $26.7 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 the number of corporate agents and operating franchises, productivity improvements as these agents mature in our system, and strong client retention of 89%. The Company grew total written premiums, which we consider to be the leading indicator of future revenue growth, by 41% in the first quarter. Total operating expenses, excluding equity-based compensation and depreciation and amortization, for the first quarter of 2022 were $40.0 million, up 38% from $29.1 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, agent support team, service agents, and information systems developers. Equity based compensation increased to $5.8 million for the period, compared to $1.9 million a year ago. The change in this non-cash item relates to the Black-Scholes valuation of newly issued options, which takes into account stock price on the grant date and historical volatility, among other inputs. General and Administrative expenses are also higher versus a year ago due to increased real estate costs related to office openings through 2021, higher marketing expenses, and expense related to our agent conference Ascend which was not held in 2021 due to Covid. Net loss for the first quarter of 2022 was $5.4 million, with the decrease due to higher non-cash stock compensation expense and lower contingent revenue. Net loss attributable to Goosehead Insurance, Inc. for the first quarter of 2022 was $2.3 million, or $(0.11) per basic diluted share. Total Adjusted EBITDA was $1.3 million for the first quarter of 2022. Adjusted EPS for the first quarter of 2022, which excludes equity-based compensation, was $0.04 per share. Liquidity and Capital Resources As of March 31, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $21.7 million. We had an unused line of credit of $24.8 million as of March 31, 2022. Total outstanding term note payable balance was $98.1 million as of March 31, 2022. 2022 Outlook The Company reiterates our prior outlook for full year 2022 is as follows: Total written premiums placed for 2022 are expected to be between $2.086 billion and $2.215 billion, representing organic growth of 34% on the low end of the range to 42% on the high end of the range. Total revenues for 2022 are expected to be between $197 million and $212 million, representing organic growth of 30% on the low end of the range to 40% on the high end of the range, driven by high levels of Core Revenue growth and historically average contingent commissions. After a year of historical investments in people, technology, and real estate, Adjusted EBITDA margin is expected to expand for the full year 2022.

Contacts 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. The following tables show a reconciliation from total revenues to Core Revenue, Cost Recovery Revenue, and Ancillary Revenue (non-GAAP basis) for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 (in thousands):
