Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment Company Announces Third Quarter 2021 Results

Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: HOFV, HOFVW) (the “Company”), the only resort, entertainment and media company centered around the power of professional football, announced its third quarter fiscal 2021 results for the period ended September 30, 2021.

“The third quarter showed the potential of the ecosystem that we are creating,” stated Michael Crawford, President and CEO of HOFV. “While hosting flagship events at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, we continued our rapid pace of construction at the Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls. We completed the Constellation Center for Excellence and recently received the certificate of occupancy, allowing programming for year-round attendance. Construction has continued to move forward in the Fan Engagement Zone, and upon completion guests will be treated to unique and immersive dining and entertainment experiences. We are also expanding the Hall of Fame Village Sports Complex through additional fields and amenities for athletes, fans, and families, which will allow for more and larger events on campus driving increased attendance and revenue synergies. Within our media division, we relaunched our Non-Fungible Token (NFT) business, we co-produced the World Chase Tag special with Tupelo Honey and ESPN, and we began production of The Perfect Ten, a documentary highlighting the 10 individuals that have won the Heisman Trophy and have been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We are also excited to be in the second season of our NFL Alumni Academy, our professional football development program, which provides our media division another opportunity to create and distribute a docuseries called “The Academy”. Finally, we were thrilled to launch the Hall of Fantasy League, our national professionally managed fantasy football league, and have had active engagement between fans and team general managers. The HOFV team continues to execute and remains focused on delivering results over the near and long term.”

Key Financial Highlights

  • Third quarter revenue was $3.5 million, an increase of 108% compared to the same period of the prior year, primarily driven by hotel revenue related to events being held at Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls. Event and rental revenue also contributed to revenue.
  • Third quarter net income was $8.1 million. This was primarily due to income of $22.5 million related to a change in fair value of warrant liability.
  • Third quarter adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $7.3 million, compared to a loss of $7.5 million in the same period of the prior year, resulting from increased investments in operations. See page 3 for reconciliation of net income attributable to Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment Company stockholders to adjusted EBITDA.
  • The Company finished its third quarter with a cash balance, including restricted cash, of $28.5 million, compared to $73.7 million as of June 30, 2021. The lower cash balance was due to three factors: (1) an expected decline in cash from operating activities, (2) increased capital expenditures related to construction activities, and (3) reduction of debt, primarily driven by a $20 million loan repayment.

Third Quarter Business Highlights

  • Entered into a non-binding term sheet for a senior loan facility secured by the Constellation Center for Excellence with ERIEBANK, for up to $25 million.
  • Announced partnership with Esports Entertainment Group to become our official eSports provider and to operate a Helix eSports entertainment center that is scheduled to open in 2022.
  • Partnered with Venuetize to develop a mobile app to provide guests with information and more convenient visits to the Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls.
  • Launched the Hall of Fantasy League’s inaugural 2021-2022 season through its first live draft and a mobile app, with former NFL players and top fantasy experts leading its franchises.
  • Signed a multi-year sponsorship agreement with Hendrickson, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of commercial transportation products.

Subsequent To Quarter End Highlights

  • Announced partnership with Whistle Studios and WaV Sports to launch a football-themed docuseries The Academy. The Academy will follow athletes participating in the second season of the NFL Alumni Academy, the first-ever in-season NFL player replacement and training program for aspiring NFL players, being held at the Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls.
