Summit Financial Services Group Announces Corrected 2013 Year End Results

BOCA RATON, Fla., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On March 4, 2014, Summit Financial Services Group, Inc. (OTC: SFNS) issued a press release announcing its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013.  The provision for income taxes set forth in the release was incorrectly stated.  Accordingly, the following revised press release is being issued, which supersedes the prior release with the corrected information regarding Summit's 2013 year end results.

For 2013, the Company reported revenues of $87.62 million, which represented an increase of $14.38 million, or approximately 20%, from the $73.24 million in revenues reported for 2012.  For 2013, the Company reported net income of $2.55 million, which represented an increase of $0.96 million, or 60%, from the $1.59 million reported in 2012.

Marshall Leeds, the Company's Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, stated: "I am extremely pleased to report an increase in revenues, pre-tax and after-tax earnings. Our results for 2013 benefitted from an overall improvement in investor confidence (as reflected by the increases in the major market indices), as well as our continued focus on recruiting and retaining financial advisors.  EBITDA, as adjusted (which we consider a significant measure of our success) increased to $5.29 million, or by almost 19%, over the $4.46 million in EBITDA, as adjusted, reported for 2012.  As always, I would like to thank everyone at Summit for their hard work and dedication during 2013."

The Company is a Florida-based financial services holding company that provides, through its operating subsidiary, Summit Brokerage Services, Inc. ("Summit Brokerage"), a broad range of securities brokerage and investment services to primarily individual investors. Summit Brokerage also sells insurance products, predominantly fixed and variable annuities and life insurance through its subsidiary, SBS Insurance Agency of Florida. Summit Brokerage also provides asset management services through its investment adviser, Summit Financial Group, Inc.

Summit Brokerage is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and is a member of FINRA (f/k/a NASD), the Municipal Securities Rule Making Board, and the National Futures Association. The Company currently offers its services through a network of approximately 315 producing financial advisors, and its business plan is focused primarily on increasing its network of affiliated registered representatives through recruitment as well as by acquisitions.

All of the above numbers have been rounded for ease of presentation.

The following table presents a reconciliation of EBITDA, as adjusted, to net income as reported:

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA, adjusted for stock-based compensation expense is a key metric the Company uses in evaluating its financial performance. EBITDA is considered a non-GAAP financial measure as defined by Regulation G, promulgated by the SEC under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Company considers EBITDA, as adjusted, important in monitoring and evaluating its financial performance on a consistent basis across various periods, as well as for purposes of, analyzing and evaluating financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating investments and potential acquisitions. The Company believes that EBITDA, as adjusted, eliminates items that are not part of its core operations, or do not involve a cash outlay, such as stock-based compensation. EBITDA, as adjusted, should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, pre-tax income, net income and cash flows from operating activities.
