Working Capital Increases by $5.4 million
Company to Host Conference Call Today at 4:30 PM Eastern Time
LAKEWOOD, NJ, Nov. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reliance Global Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: RELI; RELIW) (“Reliance”, “we” or the “Company”), today provided a business update and reported financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2023.
Ezra Beyman, CEO of Reliance, commented, “We are pleased to report a 16% and 19% year-over-year increase in revenue for the third quarter and first nine months of 2023 respectively. This growth primarily stems from the organic expansion of our business, bolstered by our acquisition of Barra Associates in April 2022. Following the acquisition and the rebranding to RELI Exchange, our agency network has demonstrated consistent growth. Despite substantial investments in RELI Exchange, we’ve managed to cut our operational losses by over 21% in the first nine months of 2023 compared to the same period in the prior year. Additionally, our working capital has increased by $5.4 million, or 117%, for the nine-month period ended, and as of September 30, 2023. RELI Exchange is crucial to our long-term strategic vision and growth and we are extremely pleased with the significant progress we’ve made in such a short time. By equipping independent agencies with a robust array of business tools, which include cutting-edge technologies and AI capabilities, RELI Exchange enables these agencies to not only compete but actually outperform larger national agencies in their services. Lastly, we’re moving to consolidate Reliance Global Group’s standalone agencies under the umbrella of RELI Exchange and look forward to providing near-term updates on our refined strategy.”
Moshe Fishman, Director of Insurtech and Operations, added, “Having completed the majority of our investment in RELI Exchange and experiencing solid performance across our operating subsidiaries, we’ve established what we believe is a highly scalable business model. The U.S. market alone presents a $2.7 trillion market opportunity for the Company, nearly 40% of the global market, and is anticipated to experience significant growth of 26% to $3.4 trillion by 2027. We remain active in tapping into this market and continue to seek out accretive business acquisition opportunities to grow our agency network, expand our national footprint, and increase our market share. As we continue to organically enhance our platform and broaden our presence throughout the U.S., we believe the Company is well-placed to achieve success in the short term and lay the groundwork for significant, ongoing long-term growth. We are confident that our strategic, cost-effective, and distinctive market approach can generate substantial long-term returns for our shareholders.”
