(Nasdaq:FH) ("FORM" or the "Company"), a diversified holding company, today updated its shareholders on the Company's preliminary second quarter estimated financial results, its unit growth objectives for the balance of 2017, as well as initial revenue guidance for 2018.  Additionally, the Company's efforts to establish itself as a pure-play Health & Wellness company are ongoing with plans to complete this transition by the end of the first quarter 2018.

Second quarter 2017 preliminary estimated financial results for the period ended June 30, 2017:

  • Expected revenues of approximately $12.9 million, representing a 15.3% increase versus the second quarter 2016.
  • Segment-level Adjusted EBITDA* in the range of approximately $0.9 million to $1.2 million, as compared to $0.2 million Adjusted EBITDA loss in the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure; see "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.

•  Technology (Group Mobile)
  • Expected revenues of approximately $3.0 million to $4.0 million.
  • Guiding to sequential margin improvement.

Wellness segment revenue projection for 2017 and updated unit growth expectations for the period ended December 31, 2017:

•  The Company is reiterating its previous 2017 revenue guidance for its Wellness segment of approximately $50 million.

•  Accelerated unit opening schedule is as follows:
  • Previous expectations for two planned units continue to be on track to open during the second half of 2017.
  • An additional seven units are now anticipated to open during the second half of 2017.  These seven units have associated lease agreements or term sheets in place.
  • The Company has identified another eight units that are presently in negotiation, some of which may open prior to year-end 2017.

Initial revenue projections for 2018:

•  The Company is providing initial revenue guidance for its Wellness segment of approximately $60 million, representing an increase of approximately 20% from 2017 reiterated guidance of approximately $50 million.

Such revenue estimates are subject to factors that could adversely impact store revenues generally, as well as the delays frequently encountered in opening new locations, including delays in negotiating suitable lease arrangements with landlords, receiving airport approvals and completing leasehold improvements.

Our financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 are not yet available and our independent registered public accounting firm, CohnReznick LLP, has not completed its review of any financial statements for such period. Our expectations with respect to our unaudited results for the period discussed above are based upon management estimates. Such results are preliminary and subject to revision based upon the completion of our quarter-end financial closing process and are not meant to be comprehensive for this period. Following the completion of our quarter-end financial closing process and review by our independent registered public accounting firm, we may report financial results that could differ from these estimates.  While we believe that the above information and estimates are based on reasonable assumptions, our actual results may vary, and such variation may be material.

*Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

FORM uses GAAP and non-GAAP measurements to assess the trends in its business. With respect to XpresSpa, FORM reviews XpresSpa adjusted EBITDA, which is earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization expense, excluding one-time costs (e.g. M&A and integration related costs).

FORM considers EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be important indicators for the performance of its business, but not measures of performance or liquidity calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  FORM has included these non-GAAP financial measures because management utilizes this information for assessing its performance and liquidity, and as indicators of its ability to make capital expenditures and finance working capital requirements.  Management believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are measurements that are commonly used by analysts and some investors in evaluating the performance and liquidity of companies such as FORM.  In particular, FORM believes that it is useful for analysts and investors to understand this relationship because it excludes transactions not related to FORM's core cash operating activities.  FORM believes that excluding these transactions allows investors to meaningfully trend and analyze the performance of FORM's core cash operations.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities or as alternatives to operating income or as indicators of operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with GAAP.  In evaluating FORM's performance as measured by EBITDA, management recognizes and considers the limitations of this measurement.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect FORM's obligations for the payment of income taxes, interest expense, or other obligations such as capital expenditures.  Accordingly, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are only two of the measurements that management utilizes.
