(“SSU” or the “Company”), the world’s leading sports e-commerce and technology platform, today reported financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ended September 30, 2021. Subsequent to the reporting period, SSU completed its business combination with Yucaipa Acquisition Corporation on December 14, 2021 in a transaction that provided gross proceeds of $484 million, and began trading on the NYSE on December 15, 2021. The Company also closed the acquisitions of WiggleCRC and Tennis Express on December 14 and December 31, 2021, respectively. Stephan Zoll, CEO of SSU, said, “We are thrilled to begin our journey as a public company and are looking forward to the opportunity ahead of us. The Company is well positioned to execute on our organic strategy as well as take advantage of attractive M&A opportunities. In addition to our public market debut, closing the acquisitions of WiggleCRC and Tennis Express mark key milestones in our strategy.” In Q4 FY2021, SSU continued to benefit from resilient consumer demand across its fast-growing verticals. The Company achieved 10% net revenue growth despite supply constraints and net revenue growth of 19% when excluding full-bike sales. For the full FY2021, net revenue increased 24%. When excluding full-bike sales, FY2021 net revenue growth was 31%. Continued Stephan Zoll, “Our teams executed extremely well against our stated strategy, delivering double-digit organic growth and compensating for industry-wide supply shortages in the Bike vertical, which dampened our topline results. We leveraged our broad assortment and inventory position to profitably drive strong organic growth in key geographies. The recent U.S. tennis acquisitions of Midwest Sports and Tennis Express, and the recently closed combination with Yucaipa and WiggleCRC, put us in a unique position to globally scale and expand our offerings in 2022.” Alex Johnstone, the Company’s CFO, said, “SSU’s results in the fiscal fourth quarter are testament to the strength of our model; we drove double-digit revenue growth whilst experiencing supply constraints in the full-bike category. The strong demand across all our verticals allowed us to expand gross margins while investing in targeted customer growth. Pro forma for the announced acquisitions, we exceeded guidance for both FY2021 Net Revenue and Adj. EBITDA.” Q4 FY2021 Consolidated Financial Summary and Key Operating Metrics     Note: Financials and KPIs not inclusive of WiggleCRC / Tennis Express.

Non IFRS Financial Measures The press release includes certain non-IFRS financial measures (including on a forward-looking basis). These non-IFRS measures are an addition, and not a substitute for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with IFRS and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with IFRS. SSU believes that these non-IFRS measures of financial results (including on a forward forward-looking basis) provide useful supplemental information to investors about SSU. SSU’s management uses forward-looking non-IFRS measures to evaluate SSU’s projected financials and operating performance. However, there are a number of limitations related to the use of these non-IFRS measures and their nearest IFRS equivalents, including that they exclude significant expenses that are required by IFRS to be recorded in the SSU’s financial measures. In addition, other companies may calculate non-IFRS measures differently, or may use other measures to calculate their financial performance, and therefore, SSU’s non-IFRS measures may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Additionally, to the extent that forward looking non-IFRS financial measures are provided, they are presented on a non-IFRS basis without reconciliations of such forward forward-looking non-IFRS measures due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations.

These forward-looking statements are based on the current expectations, beliefs and assumptions of the Group’s management and on information currently available to management and are not predictions of actual performance or further results. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, and actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements due to various factors, including, but not limited to, the following, as well as the risk factors identified in the Group’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings: our future operating or financial results; our expectations relating to dividend payments and forecasts of our ability to make such payments; our future acquisitions, business strategy and expected capital spending; our assumptions regarding interest rates and inflation; business disruptions arising from the coronavirus outbreak; our financial condition and liquidity, including our ability to obtain additional financing in the future to fund capital expenditures, acquisitions and other general corporate activities; estimated future capital expenditures needed to preserve our capital base; our ability to effect future acquisitions and to meet target returns; changes in general economic conditions in the Federal Republic of Germany, including changes in the unemployment rate, the level of consumer prices, wage levels, etc. ; the further development of online sports markets, in particular the levels of acceptance of internet retailing; our behavior on mobile devices and our ability to attract mobile internet traffic and convert such traffic into purchases of our goods; our ability to offer our customers an inspirational and attractive online purchasing experience; demographic changes, in particular with respect to the Federal Republic of Germany; changes affecting interest rate levels; changes in our competitive environment and in our competition level; changes affecting currency exchange rates; the occurrence of accidents, terrorist attacks, natural disasters, fire, environmental damage, or systemic delivery failures; our inability to attract and retain qualified personnel; political changes; and changes in laws and regulations.
