Drive Shack Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results and Preferred Stock Dividends for Third Quarter 2022


Drive Shack Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE: DS), a leading owner and operator of golf-related leisure and entertainment businesses, today reported its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.

"Our sales results this quarter reflect the strong momentum we continue to see across our entire brand portfolio. We have a solid foundation in our core businesses with our Drive Shack venues and American Golf courses and each continues to deliver exceptional results," said Drive Shack Inc.'s President and Chief Executive Officer Hana Khouri. "Event revenue was up significantly this quarter at over $10 million higher than last year's second quarter. We have seen the demand for future events across both the corporate and social categories continue to rise, which will translate into strong revenue results in the back half of this year."

Khouri continued, "Puttery delivered another quarter of great results, with walk-in revenue trending well ahead of our expectations. Our newest Puttery opened on June 21st in Washington D.C.'s Penn Quarter and while they are still in their initial stages of operations, their key metrics are aligning closely to those in The Colony and Charlotte. Puttery Houston is planned to open next month and Chicago will follow shortly thereafter. We are gaining clear proof of concept with our Puttery brand, and we are confident it presents the best path-forward for growth and profitability for the foreseeable future."

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights

Total revenue for the second quarter 2022 was $86.7 million, an increase of $12.8 million or 17.3%, compared to $73.9 million in the same period last year.

The Company's entertainment golf business, comprised of both Drive Shack and Puttery venues, generated total revenue of $15.7 million in the second quarter 2022, an increase of $4.1 million, or 35.6% compared to $11.6 million in the second quarter 2021. Total revenue at the Company's four Drive Shack venues totaled $11.2 million in the second quarter this year compared to $11.6 million in the same period last year. While slightly down to last year, the four Drive Shack venues drove a strong events business with $3.2 million in total event revenue this quarter, up $1.6 million or 106% versus the second quarter last year. Additionally, the Company's three Puttery venues generated total revenue of $4.5 million in the second quarter this year, which included $1.0 million in total event revenue. As a reminder, the Company debuted its first Puttery venue in The Colony, Texas in September 2021, followed by its second venue in Charlotte, North Carolina in mid-December 2021 and most recently its third venue in Washington D.C. which opened in late June 2022.

For the second quarter 2022, the Company's traditional golf business, American Golf, generated total revenue of $70.8 million, an increase of $8.5 million or 13.6% compared to total revenue of $62.3 million in the second quarter 2021. Total revenue included $15.2 million of managed course expense reimbursements in the second quarter this year compared to $12.9 million in the second quarter last year. The increase in total revenue was primarily due to higher event sales this year of $9.5 million, up $7.2 million or 311% versus the same period last year.

Operating loss for the second quarter 2022 was ($6.4) million compared to operating income of $1.1 million for the second quarter 2021. The change to last year was primarily due to increased pre-opening costs for new Puttery venues, strategic investments in headcount and other related expenses to support the development and growth in Puttery and the loss on lease termination following the Company's decision to fully exit its Drive Shack New Orleans lease. Consolidated net loss was ($9.6) million for the second quarter this year compared to consolidated net loss of ($2.0) million in the same period last year.

Adjusted EBITDA was $4.6 million for second quarter 2022 compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $7.7 million for second quarter 2021.1 The change to last year was primarily related to the strategic investments in headcount and other related expenses to support the development and growth in Puttery.

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $22.7 million compared to $58.3 million as of December 31, 2021. The decrease was primarily due to capital expenditures associated with the development of future Puttery venues.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to GAAP financial measures. We believe this non-GAAP financial measure, as we have defined it, provides a supplemental measure of financial performance of our current operations at our entertainment and traditional golf venues. This measure excludes items that we believe are unrelated to the day-to-day performance of our current golf entertainment or traditional golf venues, including one-time pre-opening costs associated with new venue openings, corporate severance payments, (gain) loss on lease terminations and impairment, stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization and other income (which does not include revenue from golf entertainment or traditional golf venues). This non-GAAP financial measure is presented so that investors have the same type of financial data that management uses in evaluating the financial performance of the Company.

The principal limitation of this non-GAAP measure is that it excludes significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in our financial statements. A reconciliation is provided for the non-GAAP financial measure to our GAAP net income/(loss). Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to our GAAP net income/(loss), and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Adjusted EBITDA. We define Adjusted EBITDA as GAAP net income (loss), adjusted for income tax expenses, other income (loss), interest expenses, interest and investment income, depreciation and amortization, gain (loss) on lease terminations, impairment and other losses, pre-opening costs and certain other non-recurring items (including corporate severance payments, transactional G&A and stock-based compensation).
