  • Net loss from continuing operations was $2,982,150 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to a net loss of $419,360 for the three months ended June 30, 2021, which included PPP debt forgiveness income in 2021,

  • Total Assets were $26,841,851 at June 30, 2022, and

Sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, increased to $18,076,897, an increase of 47.6% from $12,243,091 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. The increase in sales in the second quarter of 2022 was primarily driven by increased revenues in our industrial transportation segment from higher customer activity transporting drilling rigs, and in our heavy haul business transporting bridge beams, over-dimensional infrastructure items and large natural gas compressors. Our increase in revenues was also attributable to the new contribution of revenues from our 5J Transportation flatbed and 5J Logistics brokerage division, not present in the comparable period in 2021 along with the general improvement in the domestic United States economy from the COVID‑19 pandemic.

Sales for the six months ended June 30, 2022, increased to $34,257,950, an increase of 73% from $19,845,419 for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The increase in sales during the six months of 2022 was primarily driven by increased revenues in our industrial transportation segment from higher customer activity transporting drilling rigs, and in our heavy haul business transporting bridge beams, over-dimensional infrastructure items and large natural gas compressors.

“We are pleased with the revenue growth, improvement in adjusted gross margin and positive adjusted EBITDA compared to prior periods,” stated Matt Flemming, Chairman of SMG. Matt continued, “Currently the Company anticipates further revenue, margin and EBITDA growth from indicated increased customer demand of infrastructure components such as bridge beams, higher volumes and improved pricing. Additionally, our asset-light brokerage business continues to be an important part of our anticipated future growth along with accretive acquisitions we seek.”

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This news release includes non-GAAP financial measures for the Company and its reporting segments, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Cost of Sales and Adjusted Gross Margins.

Please note that the non-GAAP measures described below are not a substitute for, or more meaningful than, net income (loss), cash flows from operating activities, operating income or any other measure prescribed by GAAP, and there are limitations to using non-GAAP measures. Certain items excluded from these non-GAAP measures are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital, tax structure and the historic costs of depreciable assets. Also, other companies in SMG’s industry may define these non‐GAAP measures differently than SMG does, and as a result, it may be difficult to use these non‐GAAP measures to compare the performance of those companies to SMG’s performance. Because of these limitations, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered a measure of the income generated by SMG’s business or discretionary cash available to it to invest in the growth of its business. SMG’s management compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on SMG’s GAAP results and using these non-GAAP measures supplementally.

You can find the reconciliation of these non‐GAAP measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures in the table above.

Adjusted EBITDA

SMG defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) interest expense, (iii) income taxes, and (iv) non-cash items such as amortization of debt discounts, stock option expenses and other non-recurring and material items that management believes do not reflect our core operating performance.

We have not reconciled non‐GAAP forward-looking measures to their corresponding GAAP measures because certain items that impact these measures are unavailable or cannot be reasonably predicted without unreasonable efforts.
