Sep 21, 2021

Company to Host Conference Call at 8:30 AM ET on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Great Elm Group, Inc. (“we,” “us,” “our,” “GEG,” or “Great Elm”) (NASDAQ: GEG), a diversified holding company, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2021 fourth quarter and year ended June 30, 2021. Fiscal 2021 Fourth Quarter and Annual Financial Highlights (all comparisons versus the prior-year period unless otherwise noted) Consolidated: Consolidated revenue for the fiscal quarter and year ended June 30, 2021 was $16.3 million and $60.9 million, compared to $14.7 million and $59.0 million Consolidated net loss for the fiscal quarter and year ended June 30, 2021 was $1.4 million and $9.3 million, compared to net income of $4.1 million and net loss of $13.3 million Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal quarter and year ended June 30, 2021 was $3.5 million and $8.6 million, compared to $5.9 million and $11.2 million Operating Companies: Durable Medical Equipment (DME) reported total revenue for the fiscal quarter and year ended June 30, 2021 of $15.4 million and $57.6 million, compared to $13.9 million and $55.7 million DME reported net income for the fiscal quarter and year ended June 30, 2021 of $5.9 million and net loss of $2.5 million, compared to net income of $2.8 million and net loss of $0.1 million DME reported Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal quarter and year ended June 30, 2021 of $4.3 million and $12.4 million, compared to $7.0 million and $16.0 million Investment Management (IM): IM reported revenue for the fiscal quarter and year ended June 30, 2021 of $0.9 million and $3.2 million, compared to $0.7 million and $3.3 million IM reported net income for the fiscal quarter and year ended June 30, 2021 of $1.3 million and $2.7 million, compared to net income of $3.4 million and net loss of $6.2 million IM reported Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal quarter and year ended June 30, 2021 of $0.1 million and $0.4 million, compared to $0.2 million and $1.2 million Fiscal 2021 Annual Operating Highlights Consolidated: Completed a holding company reorganization and financing transaction with J.P. Morgan Broker-Dealer Holdings Inc. (JPM) that resulted in a $5 million distribution to GEG, lowered DME’s cost of capital and provided additional capital for acquisition opportunities Sold the real estate business consisting of our entire ownership interest in two Class A office buildings located in Fort Myers, Florida to an affiliate of Monomoy Properties, LLC, for a cash payment of $4.6 million which was reinvested in shares of Monomoy. This disposition helped to simplify GEG’s financial statements by removing approximately $54 million of non-recourse debt and generates cash flow for GEG through ongoing dividend payments from Monomoy Repurchased substantially all of the minority equity interest in GECC GP Corp. (GP Corp) as well as a $3.1 million note issued by GP Corp, removing another $3.1 million of non-recourse debt from GEG’s consolidated balance sheet and further simplifying its corporate structure As of June 30, 2021, we had approximately $952 million of net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards for federal income tax purposes Operating Companies: Completed the acquisitions by DME of Advanced Medical DME, LLC and PM Sleep Lab, LLC (AMPM), providers of sleep testing, PAP, and other respiratory products and services in 9 locations throughout Kansas and Missouri Following fiscal year end, completed the acquisition by DME of the power mobility assets of MedOne Healthcare LLC (MedOne), which enhances DME’s power mobility solutions and expands its geographic reach Reported revenue growth at DME driven by strong resupply sales despite challenging pandemic related conditions Investment Management: Completed a $30 million rights offering at Great Elm Capital Corp. (GECC), a publicly traded business development company managed by our wholly owned subsidiary, Great Elm Capital Management, Inc., in October 2020, increasing GECC’s investable assets Completed a $57 million senior note offering at GECC in June and July 2021, the proceeds of which were used to redeem GECC’s senior notes due 2022 at a lower cost of capital and to provide $24 million of incremental liquidity Closed a three-year, $25 million revolving credit facility at GECC to support its investment activities Continued portfolio rotation at GECC with a focus on proprietary specialty finance investments Launched a new private fund (GESOF) to invest in SPACs and capitalize on the asymmetric risk profile inherent in the SPAC structure, with a focus of acquiring pre-announcement SPACs securities at or below cash trust value Enhanced the depth and experience of our investment team through the execution of a shared services agreement with Imperial Capital Asset Management Management Commentary Peter A. Reed, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We continue to build on the positive momentum in all aspects of our business. During the fiscal year, we entered into a transformative transaction with JPM which resulted in a distribution to GEG, lowered DME’s cost of capital and provided additional liquidity for future acquisitions. To that end, DME completed the acquisitions of AMPM and MedOne, which expanded DME’s total revenue, geographic reach and cross selling opportunities. In addition, we grew revenue at IM by raising significant capital at GECC and continuing to rotate its portfolio into higher quality credits with a focus on specialty finance. In June, we exited our real estate business at an attractive valuation, generating additional cash flow through ongoing dividend payments from the Monomoy shares while, together with the GP Corp transaction, eliminating $57 million of debt from our consolidated balance sheet and simplifying our corporate structure. We believe all of these developments leave Great Elm well positioned to maximize the value of DME, further grow IM fee revenue and create long term value for our shareholders.” Alignment of Interest A distinct attribute of Great Elm is the particularly strong alignment of interest among shareholders and the employees, directors, and other insiders of Great Elm. As of June 30, 2021, Great Elm’s employees and directors (including funds under their management) collectively own or manage approximately 28% of GEG’s total outstanding shares. Financial Review Discussion of Financial Results for the Fiscal Quarter and Year ended June 30, 2021 Great Elm is a holding company with two operating segments: Operating Companies and Investment Management, with General Corporate representing unallocated costs and activity to arrive at consolidated operations. Operating Companies During the three months ended June 30, 2021, DME recognized $15.4 million in total revenue, compared to $13.9 million during the same period in the prior year. The increase in revenues was due to organic growth in resupply sales and the impact of the AMPM acquisition. The demand for sleep studies continues to be soft due to the ongoing impact from the COVID-19 pandemic, and referrals for new equipment set-ups declined as they are generally driven by in-house or external sleep studies. Late in the fiscal fourth quarter we encountered a slowdown in usage at our sleep labs due to products on recall as well as supply chain delays, which have been largely offset due to our ability to scale the DME business in the year. We are continuing to work closely with our manufacturing partners and remain opportunistic as the industry continues to consolidate. For the year ended June 30, 2021, DME recognized a 3.6% increase in total revenue to $57.6 million, compared to $55.7 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase in total revenue was due primarily to the AMPM acquisition and organic growth in resupply sales. During the three months ended June 30, 2021, DME reported net income of $5.9 million, compared to net income of $2.8 million for the same period in the prior year. Net income increased largely due to a $5.4 million benefit related to a fair value adjustment recorded in connection with the preferred stock issued to Forest Investments, Inc. (Forest), GEG’s majority owned subsidiary, with an offsetting impact to General Corporate and eliminated in consolidation. For the year ended June 30, 2021, DME reported a net loss of $2.5 million, compared to a net loss of $0.1 million for the same period in the prior year. During the three months ended June 30, 2021, DME Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was $4.3 million, compared to $7.0 million in the prior-year period. For the year ended June 30, 2021, DME Adjusted EBITDA was $12.4 million, compared to $16.0 million for the same period in the prior year. Subsequent to quarter end, DME acquired the power mobility assets of MedOne. This acquisition strengthens DME’s geographic reach into Arizona, where MedOne is a market leader in power mobility solutions. Investment Management During the three months ended June 30, 2021, IM recognized total revenue of $0.9 million, compared to $0.7 million during the same period in the prior year. Revenue for the quarter was slightly higher due to increases in the average assets on which such fees are calculated. For the year ended June 30, 2021, IM recognized total revenue of $3.2 million, compared to $3.3 million during the same period in the prior year. Revenue for the year was slightly lower due to decreases in the average assets on which such fees are calculated over the course of the year. During the three months ended June 30, 2021, IM recognized net income of $1.3 million, compared to $3.4 million during the same period in the prior year. For the year ended June 30, 2021, IM recognized net income of $2.7 million, compared to a net loss of $6.2 million for the same period in the prior year. IM recognized net realized and unrealized gains on its investments of $0.7 million and unrealized losses of $8.7 million, respectively, for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. During the three months ended June 30, 2021, IM Adjusted EBITDA was $0.1 million, compared to $0.2 million during the same period in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was impacted primarily by increased employee-related costs and professional fees related to investment management growth initiatives. For the year ended June 30, 2021, IM Adjusted EBITDA was $0.4 million, compared to $1.2 million during the same period in the prior year. On October 1, 2020, GECC successfully completed a non-transferable rights offering which entitled holders of rights to purchase one new share of common stock for each right held at a subscription price of $2.95 per share. In total, GECC sold 10,761,950 shares of its common stock for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $31.7 million. In March 2021, we launched GESOF, a private investment fund to invest in SPACs. GEG invested $10 million in GESOF to help seed this vehicle, which we hope will contribute to increased assets under management for the investment management business and help drive additional fee revenue. In May 2021, GECC closed a three-year, $25 million revolving credit facility that bears interest at LIBOR plus 3.50%. In June and July 2021, GECC issued $57.0 million of senior notes due 2026 that bear interest at a rate of 5.875% per year. GECC subsequently used the proceeds of this offering to redeem its 6.50% Notes due 2022, resulting in a $24 million of incremental liquidity. General Corporate During the three months ended June 30, 2021, General Corporate recognized $0.3 million in revenue compared to $45 thousand in revenue during the same period in the prior year. For the year ended June 30, 2021, General Corporate recognized $0.6 million in revenue compared to $0.2 million for the same period in the prior year. Revenue increased slightly as a result of increased management fees earned from DME, along with new management fees earned from Forest arising from our transaction with JPM. During the three months ended June 30, 2021, Great Elm recognized a net loss of $1.4 million, compared to $4.1 million in net income during the same period in the prior year. The difference in net income was driven primarily by higher interest expense in addition to lower net unrealized gains on GEG’s investment in GECC during the fiscal fourth quarter, compared to the same period in the prior year. For the year ended June 30, 2021, Great Elm recognized a net loss of $9.3 million, compared to a net loss of $13.4 million during the same period in the prior year. During the three months ended June 30, 2021, Great Elm recognized $3.5 million in Adjusted EBITDA, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $5.9 million during the same period in the prior year. For the year ended June 30, 2021, Great Elm recognized $8.6 million in Adjusted EBITDA, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $11.2 million during the same period in the prior year. Great Elm made significant progress on reducing its corporate overhead, driven by lower audit fees due to a change in auditors in the prior fiscal year and other decreases in professional service expense.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 Statements in this press release that are “forward-looking” statements, including statements regarding revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, expected growth, profitability, acquisition opportunities and outlook involve risks and uncertainties that may individually or collectively impact the matters described herein. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made and represent Great Elm’s assumptions and expectations in light of currently available information. These statements involve risks, variables and uncertainties, and Great Elm’s actual performance results may differ from those projected, and any such differences may be material. For information on certain factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from Great Elm’s expectations, please see Great Elm’s filings with the SEC, including its most recent annual report on Form 10-K and subsequent reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K. Additional information relating to Great Elm’s financial position and results of operations is also contained in Great Elm’s annual and quarterly reports filed with the SEC and available for download at its website www.greatelmgroup.com or at the SEC website www.sec.gov . Non-GAAP Financial Measures The SEC has adopted rules to regulate the use in filings with the SEC, and in public disclosures, of financial measures that are not in accordance with US GAAP, such as adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”). Adjusted EBITDA is derived from methodologies other than in accordance with US GAAP. Great Elm believes that Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure for investors to use in evaluating Great Elm’s businesses. In addition, Great Elm’s management reviews Adjusted EBITDA as they evaluate acquisition opportunities. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it either in isolation from, or as a substitute for, analyzing Great Elm’s results as reported under US GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures reported by Great Elm may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. Set forth below is a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable US GAAP financial measure, net income. Media & Investor Contact:
