eXp World Holdings, Inc. Reports Record Revenue and Growth for First Quarter

Revenue and Agent Count Both Up Over 100%

BELLINGHAM, WA--(Marketwired - May 13, 2016) - eXp World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: EXPI), today released its first quarter financial results.

Financial Highlights

  • Revenues for the quarter of $7,142,812, up 107% from $3,449,241 year over year;
  • Agent Count for Real Estate Division up 106% over Q1 2015 to 1,104 agents
  • Net Loss for the period was $619,867 - mostly attributable to stock options issued prior to 2013
  • Cash on Hand at end of period up 114% vs 1 year ago

The increase in revenue is a direct result of the increased sales agent base and higher sales volume realized by the Company's real estate brokerage division, eXp Realty, The Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage™. Today, eXp Realty has more than 1,240 real estate professionals across 38 states and Alberta, Canada.

Glenn Sanford, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the Company's performance, "It is extremely gratifying to see the value proposition of eXp Realty being embraced by an ever increasing number of forward-thinking agents and brokers. Our internal mantra of 'We want the value proposition of eXp Realty to be so good that it would be irresponsible for an agent and broker to hang their license anywhere else' has and will continue to drive innovation around the Agent/Owner model. The fact that our growth is accelerating in both agent count and the percentage of overall growth is a testament to our continued iterations around the broker and agent value proposition. We are also excited about the journey of extending this mantra into other related industries, most notably mortgage with First Cloud Mortgage, Inc. which reported its first revenues this quarter as well."
