SMG Industries Inc. Releases Financial Information Recently Filed in a Current Report on Form 8-K and Stockholder Update

HOUSTON, TX - (NewMediaWire) - October 02, 2023 - SMG Industries Inc. (“SMG” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: SMGI), a growth-oriented transportation services company specializing in the full-service logistics market, today reported its pro forma financial results in connection with its July 7, 2023, acquisition of the Barnhart family of companies.

On September 15, 2023, the Company amended its Current Report on Form 8-K originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on July 12, 2023, which amendment included the financial statements and pro forma financial information required by Item 9.01 of Form 8-K in connection with its recent acquisition of the Barnhart family of companies that closed July 7, 2023.

As illustrated in the Current Report on Form 8-K/A filed with the SEC on September 15, 2023, on a pro forma combined basis for fiscal year 2022, revenues were $152,771,088, gross profit was $16,770,897, net loss from continuing operations was $5,296,586 (which included non-cash expenses of $13,930,353 in depreciation and amortization expenses), generating a net loss of $5,156,039 including those non-cash items. In addition, as disclosed in further detail below, pro forma Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, for fiscal year 2022 was $15,046,814 (see reconciliation table below). 

Timothy Barnhart, CFO of SMG said, “Our team is excited about our future growth prospects and new critical mass in size given the July 7th closing of the Barnhart family of companies and its added cash flow. In addition to realizing cost synergies, the Company has been very busy with internal integration of its business and is fortunate to have transportation management systems (TMS) and related infrastructure that are similar and pair well together. Currently, the team believes this integration, including accounting and information technology, will be concluded prior to the year-end 2023. We have executed on several of the expense saving initiatives, including national account buying for fuel and other expenses.” Timothy continued, “The Company’s next Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter 2023 will include the financial results from the Barnhart acquisition from its effective date of July 7, 2023, through September 30, 2023, within SMG’s consolidated financial results for the third quarter.”

“We have hundreds of customers between the legacy business of SMG and the Barnhart family of companies that can be cross-referred to generate growth. Structurally, we have combined the brokerage business of 5J Logistics Services into the larger Lake Shore Logistics operations, which has generated positive feedback from our customers accessing expanded transportation service lines,” stated Bryan Barnhart, CEO of SMG. Bryan continued, “The Company has several revenue synergies underway, including cross-fertilizing customers, introducing additional services lines from the Barnhart family of companies and SMG/5J companies expanding solutions by building a “one stop shop,” full-service logistics provider for our customers and delivering seamless logistics solutions spanning the globe. We continue to enjoy diversification in our end market customer focus with industrial, oilfield and intermodal benefiting from additional activity in the market.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release includes the non-GAAP financial measure pro forma Adjusted EBITDA, which the Company believes provides management, investors, and creditors with a useful measure of the operational results of the Company’s business and increases the period-to-period comparability of such results.  This non-GAAP measure is not a substitute for, or more meaningful than, net loss or any other measure prescribed by GAAP, and there are limitations to using non-GAAP measures. Certain items excluded from this non-GAAP measure are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital, tax structure and the historic costs of depreciable assets. Also, other companies in SMG’s industry may define this non‐GAAP measure differently than SMG does, and as a result, it may be difficult to use this non‐GAAP measure to compare the performance of those companies to SMG’s performance. Because of these limitations, this non-GAAP measure should not be considered a measure of the income generated by SMG’s business or discretionary cash available to it to invest in the growth of its business.

You can find the reconciliation of this non‐GAAP measure to the nearest comparable GAAP measure in the table.
