LYNNFIELD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2014--Investors Capital Holdings, Ltd. (NYSE MKT: ICH, the “Company”), a financial services holding company, announced financial results today for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2014.

Fourth Quarter Highlights:

  • Advisory fees increased by 17.6% to $4.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to $4.2 million in the prior period, reflecting both market appreciation as well as net new assets in our advisory platform, Investors Capital Advisory.
  • Commissions revenue dropped modestly by 4.3% to $17.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, as compared to $18.2 million in the prior period.
  • Net loss was $1.0 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 as compared to $0.3 million in the prior year’s period. Specifically, regulatory, legal and professional expenses increased by $1.0 million or 65.0% as the Company incurred $0.3 million in professions fees related to RCS Capital Corp. (“RCAP”)’s pending acquisition of ICH, coupled with $1.3 million for estimated legal settlement and defense costs, as well as 25.0% increase in advertising, marketing and promotion costs.

Fiscal Year Highlights:

  • Revenue for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014 increased 10.3% to $93.6 million, as compared to $84.9 million in the prior period reflecting momentum from both organic and recruiting growth. Notably, results reflect growth in our higher-margin fee-based business.
  • Commission revenue grew 8.5% to $71.2 million, up from $65.6 million in the prior fiscal year, reflecting increased transaction volume and sales in all major product categories.
  • Advisory fee-based revenue grew 14.5% to $18.8 million, up from $16.4 million in the prior fiscal year due to both new assets and positive market conditions.
  • Net loss of $2.4 million as compared to operating income of $0.4 million resulting principally from approximately $1.1 million in professional fees for the pending merger with RCAP, coupled with the settlement of multiple claims and arbitrations, and finally, promotional costs increased 83.5% in recruiting and branding efforts as compared to the prior fiscal year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation and non-recurring items) reflects a loss of $0.7 million for the current fiscal year, as compared to income of $1.3 million in the prior year due to operating costs particularly in regulatory, legal and professional costs, in excess of this fiscal year’s revenue growth. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure described below, is a key metric utilized by the Company in evaluating its financial performance.
  • The Company’s average revenue per representative, based on a rolling 12-month period, rose to approximately $202,000, an increase of 9.2% compared to approximately $185,000 for the prior rolling 12-month period, reflecting sustained advisor productivity.
