BELLINGHAM, WA--(Marketwired - August 15, 2016) - eXp World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: EXPI), today released its second quarter financial results.
- Revenues for the quarter of $13,282,028, up 137% from $5,584,963 year over year;
- Agent Count for Real Estate Division up 111% over Q2 2015 to 1,400 agents (as of June 30);
- Cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2016 up 207% vs June 30, 2015;
- The Company reported a GAAP Net Loss of $6,005,907 which was primarily attributable to a $6.0 million non-cash compensation expense resulting from the required accounting treatment of stock options that were issued prior to EXPI being a public company.*
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 1,580 real estate professionals across 40 states, The District of Columbia, and Alberta, Canada.
Glenn Sanford, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the Company's performance, "eXp Realty continues to experience accelerated growth in agent count and in revenues as a result of our commitment to agent ownership, agent support, and agent engagement."
*Note: As explained in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q which can be found at: https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1495932/000101968716007240/exp_10q-063016.htm, the Company accounts for stock options issued prior to September 2013 using the intrinsic value method of accounting. As a result, the Company is required to remeasure the intrinsic value of these outstanding options at each reporting date and record a non-cash compensation expense or benefit to reflect the change in intrinsic value. As our stock price has continued to increase during the six month period ending June 30, 2016 this has triggered an increase in intrinsic value of these options resulting in a non-cash compensation expense of $6.0 million to be recognized during this period.
