MICT, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2021 Financial Results and Provides Corporate Update


MONTVALE, N.J., May 24, 2021 -- MICT, Inc. (Nasdaq: MICT), (the “Company”), today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.


Q1 2021 Highlights and Recent Developments


Acquired a nationwide license in China enabling the Company to offer broad range of insurance brokerage products and services through the acquisition of Beijing Fucheng, a Chinese insurance brokerage firm and its trading subsidiary
Achieved regulatory approval from the Hong Kong FSC to enable the acquisition of Huapei Global Securities, which allows us to launch our stock trading platform to trade securities on major stock exchanges in Hong Kong, the United States and China
Commenced the development of commodity trading and futures trading platform following new financial services partnership with Shanghai Petroleum and National Gas Trading Center enabling the Company to offer
Following completion of insurance platform, generated $8.2 million in revenue in the first three months of operation
Raised a total of $114 million from capital raises in first quarter facilitating additional corporate development and margin trading for the stock platform
 As of March 31, 2021, cash position was approximately $123 million


Darren Mercer, MICT’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “After launching our insurance platform in late December, we experienced a strong ramp generating revenues of almost $9 million in our first full quarter of operation. This business continues to have strong momentum and we expect a long runway of robust growth. We are excited about the prospects of our insurance business as we continue to leverage strong relationships to generate leads.


“In the first quarter, we also completed the development of our stock trading platform, which is now in testing mode and expected to soft launch in late June with the rollout in July. As of March 31, 2021, we had $123 million in cash on our balance sheet, which will provide enough capital to execute on our growth plans with our stock trading platform. There is an enormous opportunity in stock market trading in China and Southeast Asia and we are well positioned through our technology, license and balance sheet to capitalize on it.


“It has therefore been a transformative quarter for the Company, and we have achieved a great deal in a very short amount of time. In terms of licenses, we achieved regulatory approval from the Hong Kong SFC, which will enable us to initiate trading on our stock trading app, which is in the late phase of testing. We acquired a Chinese nationwide broker licensing in the insurance space, which will facilitate rapid growth in our insurance business in China. The acquisition enables us to offer b2c product direct to customers, enables us to move into higher margin insurance products, and the building of our database each month provides a strong foundation for us to become a b2c player. In the second quarter, we expect to launch our b2b2c platforms and we anticipate this to further perform in terms of volume and margin.





“From a technological standpoint, we have also made remarkable progress. As I just indicated, we launched our b2c insurance platform during this quarter, and we have moved our stock trading platform into the final stages of testing with the expectation that we anticipate a soft launch in late June with a larger rollout to occur in July. We have also begun the development of our commodities trading platform and will provide further updates on that as they become available.


“We are in great shape in terms of licenses, great progress in our technology, and our fundraising over the course of the quarter has created a balance sheet that enables us to create an extremely strong fintech platform in one of the fastest growing economic regions in the world.


“Finally, we have very strong management teams in each of our divisions that are executing extremely well, and we are very excited about Q2 and beyond.


“This is a stark contrast to this time last year when company had a very small market cap and only $3M in cash. We were also a minority shareholder in Micronet, which was underperforming and underwhelming in the market. Whereas during this corresponding quarter of 2021, Micronet, of which we are now a majority shareholder, is showing great signs of growth and productivity, having signed key orders and obtained the license to use the global T-Mobile network.


“Most importantly, our move to the fintech space is paying off. Our insurance business is performing well, having garnered over $8M in insurance revenue during the quarter, the stock trading platform is about to come online along with the development of our commodities trading business, and we are sitting on significant cash to support and develop each of our business lines,” concluded Mr. Mercer.


Q1 2021 Financial Review


Revenue in the first quarter was $8.9 million versus $0 in the year-ago period. The increase in Q1 was a result of the insurance division, which was launched in late December
Gross profit in Q1 was $1.9 million versus $0 in the year-ago period
R&D expenses in Q1 were $231 thousand versus $0 in the year-ago period
Selling & marketing expenses in Q1 was $1 million versus $0 in the first quarter of 2020.
General and administrative expenses were $4.6 million in Q1 versus $770 thousand in the prior-year period

Net loss attributable to MICT in the first quarter was $ 4.5million in the first quarter versus a loss of $1.6 million in the prior-year period. The increase in the operating loss and the net loss was the result of higher operating expenses associated with the Company’s launch into the China fintech market
As of March 31, 2021, cash position was approximately $123 million

Non-GAAP Financial Measures


In addition to providing financial measurements based on generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S., or GAAP, we provide additional financial metrics that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, or non-GAAP financial measures. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to understand and compare operating results across accounting periods, for financial and operational decision making, for planning and forecasting purposes and to evaluate our financial performance.


Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect our ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful comparisons and analysis of trends in our business, as they exclude expenses and gains that are not reflective of our ongoing operating results. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating our operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies.


The non-GAAP financial measures do not replace the presentation of our GAAP financial results and should only be used as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.


The non-GAAP adjustments, and the basis for excluding them from non-GAAP financial measures, are outlined below:


Amortization of acquired intangible assets - We are required to amortize the intangible assets, included in our GAAP financial statements, related to the Transaction and the Acquisition. The amount of an acquisition’s purchase price allocated to intangible assets and term of its related amortization are unique to these transactions. The amortization of acquired intangible assets are non-cash charges. We believe that such charges do not reflect our operational performance. Therefore, we exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets to provide investors with a consistent basis for comparing pre- and post-transaction operating results.


Expenses related to beneficial conversion feature expense - Those expenses are non-cash expenses and are related to the difference between the stock price at the closing of the Note Purchase Agreements and the conversion price of $1.10 per share.


Stock-based compensation is share based awards granted to certain individuals. They are non-cash and affected by our historical stock prices which are irrelevant to forward-looking analyses and are not necessarily linked to our operational performance.


Expenses related to the purchase of a business - These expenses relate directly to the purchase of the GFH I transaction and consist mainly of legal and accounting fees, insurance fees and other consultants. We believe that these expenses do not reflect our operational performance. Therefore, we exclude them to provide investors with a consistent basis for comparing pre- and post-Vehicle Business purchase operating results.


Expenses related to settlement agreement - These expenses relate directly to the settlement agreement with Maxim and Sunrise. More information can be found in the legal proceeding part.





The following table reconciles, for the periods presented, GAAP net loss attributable to MICT to non-GAAP net income attributable to MICT. and GAAP loss per diluted share attributable to MICT to non-GAAP net loss per diluted share attributable to MICT.:
