SHIKIGAKU" Business Strategies and Earnings Reviewed by KCR

TOKYO, Dec. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- SHIKIGAKU Co., Ltd.  (TYO:7049) , the company that primarily provides management consulting and platform services based on "Shikigaku," an organizational management theory grounded in original and unique logical concepts, recently has been reviewed by KCR Inc., an independent research and investor relations support company providing reports on various publicly traded Japanese companies. In this report, KCR provides analysis of the company's business model and earnings. Report Highlights With its corporate philosophy of "Disseminate Shikigaku and maximize people's potential," SHIKIGAKU Co., Ltd. (TSE Mothers: 7049) has focused on conducting activities aimed at propagating its Shikigaku theory since its founding. Established in March 2015, the Company has since applied its Shikigaku theory internally, and was listed on the Mothers section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange within just four years. The Shikigaku theory was invented by Kenji Fukutomi, currently the second largest shareholder of the Company, and was subsequently systematized and expanded by Koudai Ando, the Company's president and representative director. When the Company was established, it started with only JPY500,000 in capital, including JPY250,000 each from President Ando and Kenji Fukutomi, and has since been growing with astonishing speed. The company's existing businesses include its core Organization Consulting business; the Sports Entertainment business, which consists mainly of a B2 League basketball team that the Company acquired to expand its business domain; and the VC Fund business. Additionally, the Company has launched a Hands-On Support Fund business and a Contract Development business as new businesses. In its Organization Consulting business, the Company plans to once again increase its consultant staff by 20–25 consultants. Ultimately, the Company aims to prove the effectiveness of its Shikigaku theory by expanding the size of this staff to 100 consultants. Meanwhile, the company is working to further increase the pool of contracted companies and sales figures associated with its platform services and expand sales generated through SHIKIGAKU Career while striving to maintain per-consultant sales of JPY4 million. The Company is also endeavoring to prove the utility of its Shikigaku theory in all of its other business domains by developing for-profit business operations within these areas. For example, the Company began developing its fund-related businesses by proving that investees receiving support from the Company generated higher results when implementing the Company's Shikigaku theory on a full scale. The unique logic of the Shikigaku system implies a structure of consciousness, and the system itself represents patterns of behavioral logic that are set ...Full story available on Benzinga.com.....»»

Notable Achievements Topline sales growth of 4% for the third quarter compared to the third quarter of fiscal year 2020, which includes the opening of 7 new stores in an 8 week period. As of today, the Company has opened 10 stores in fiscal 2021, including in 2 new states. This brings our total store count to 122 stores in 29 states. Same store sales decline of 1.5% for the third quarter of fiscal year 2021 compared to the third quarter of fiscal year 2020. Compared to the same period of 2019, the Company saw same store sales growth of 39.4%. E-commerce sales growth of over 15% for the third quarter of fiscal year 2021 versus the same period of fiscal year 2020.

For the thirteen weeks ended October 30, 2021: Net sales were $401.0 million, an increase of $15.3 million, or 4.0%, compared to the third quarter of fiscal year 2020, primarily due to the opening of seven new stores since October 31, 2020. Compared to the third quarter of fiscal year 2019, net sales increased 65.3% from $242.5 million. Same store sales decreased 1.5% during the third quarter of fiscal year 2021 compared to the third quarter of fiscal year 2020. Compared to the same period of 2019, same stores sales increased 39.4%.

The decrease in gross profit margin can be attributed to an increase in freight costs partially offset by higher product margins and vendor programs. Net income was $21.9 million compared to net income of $30.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020. Adjusted net income was $22.7 million compared to adjusted net income of $31.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020.

Compared to the first 39 weeks of fiscal 2019, net sales increased 73.5% from $628.2 million.

The decline in gross profit margin can be attributed to higher freight costs for the period versus the prior year, partially offset by increased product margins and vendor programs. Net income was $50.0 million compared to net income of $61.8 million in the first 39 weeks of fiscal year 2020. Adjusted net income was $54.7 million compared to adjusted net income of $65.6 million in the first 39 weeks of fiscal year 2020.

Total inventory was $428.5 million as of the end of the third quarter of fiscal year 2021. Inventory per store has recovered as compared to 2020 levels with an increase of 25.2% more on a per store basis. Q4 2021 and Full Year Outlook: At this time the Company will not be providing guidance for the fourth quarter or full fiscal year 2021. Non-GAAP Information This press release includes the following financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"): adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines adjusted net income as net income, plus expenses incurred relating to the acquisition of Field and Stream store locations and the proposed merger with the Great Outdoors Group, LLC, expenses incurred relating to bonuses and increased wages paid to front-line and non-executive back office associates due to COVID-19, the costs and impairments recorded relating to the closure of one store during the first quarter of 2020, an accrual relating to pending labor litigation in the state of California, the excess of fair value over the purchase price of tangible assets acquired in connection with the Field & Stream stores acquired during fiscal 2020 and expenses incurred relating to the transition of our former Chief Financial Officer and the recruitment and hiring of various key members of our senior management team, less recognized tax benefits, as applicable. The Company defines adjusted diluted earnings per share as adjusted net income divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, income tax (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, pre-opening expenses, expenses incurred relating to the acquisition of Field and Stream store locations and the proposed merger with the Great Outdoors Group, LLC, bonuses and increased wages paid to front-line and non-executive back office associates due to COVID-19, the costs and impairments recorded relating to the closure of one store during the first quarter of 2020, the excess of fair value over the purchase price of tangible assets acquired in connection with the Field & Stream stores acquired during fiscal 2020, expenses incurred relating to the transition of our former Chief Financial Officer and the recruitment and hiring of various key members of our senior management team and an accrual relating to pending labor litigation in the state of California . The Company has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures under "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures" in this release. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures not only provide its management with comparable financial data for internal financial analysis but also provide meaningful supplemental information to investors. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to better understand the performance of the Company's business and facilitate a more meaningful comparison of its diluted earnings per share and actual results on a period-over-period basis. The Company has provided this information as a means to evaluate the results of its ongoing operations. Other companies in the Company's industry may calculate these items differently than the Company does. Each of these measures is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. Forward-Looking Statements This press release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 as contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Company cannot assure investors that future developments affecting the Company will be those that it has anticipated. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations due to many factors including, but not limited to:  the potential impact of the termination of our merger agreement with Great Outdoors Group, LLC, including any impact on our stock price, business, financial condition and results of operations, and the potential negative impact to our business and employee relationships; current and future government regulations, in particular regulations relating to the sale of firearms and ammunition, which may impact the supply and demand for the Company's products and the Company's ability to conduct its business; the impacts of COVID-19 and measures intended to reduce its spread on the Company's operations; the Company's retail-based business model, which is impacted by general economic, market and financial uncertainties that may cause a decline in consumer spending; the Company's concentration of stores in the Western United States, which makes the Company susceptible to adverse conditions in this region and could affect the Company's sales and cause its operating results to suffer; the highly fragmented and competitive industry in which the Company operates and the potential for increased competition; changes in consumer demands, including regional preferences, which the Company may not be able to identify and respond to in a timely manner; the Company's entrance into new markets or operations in existing markets, which may not be successful; and other factors that are set forth in the Company's filings with the SEC, including under the caption "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 30, 2021 which was filed with the SEC on April 2, 2021, and the Company's other public filings made with the SEC and available at www.sec.gov. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if any of the Company's assumptions prove incorrect, the Company's actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement made by the Company in this release speaks only as of the date on which the Company makes it. Factors or events that could cause the Company's actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the Company to predict all of them. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by any applicable securities laws.

Oxford: Strong Consumer Demand and Excellent Execution Drove Record Third Quarter Results, Raises Full Year Guidance

Third quarter net sales increased 41% year-over-year and exceeded pre-pandemic levels Third quarter GAAP and adjusted EPS increased to $1.54 and $1.19, respectively Raises fourth quarter and full-year revenue and EPS guidance ATLANTA, Dec. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Industries, Inc. (NYSE:OXM) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2021 third quarter ended October 30, 2021. Due to the material impact of COVID-19 on the Company's business in fiscal 2020, this release includes comparisons of fiscal 2021 results to both fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2020. Consolidated net sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 were $248 million compared to $175 million and $241 million in the third quarters of fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019, respectively, despite significantly lower sales at Lanier Apparel, which we effectively exited during the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Earnings on a GAAP basis increased to $1.54 per share compared to a loss of $0.64 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 and earnings of $0.10 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. On an adjusted basis, earnings increased to $1.19 per share compared to a loss of $0.44 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 and earnings of $0.10 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Details on adjustments can be found in the reconciliation tables at the end of this release. Thomas C. Chubb III, Chairman and CEO, commented, "We are delighted to be reporting record net sales and earnings for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. These outstanding results are directly attributable to the power of our brand portfolio, the strength of our product offerings and our ability to connect with and serve customers across channels, combined with the great work our teams have done to fortify these foundational cornerstones during the pandemic. While the current operating environment has presented challenges including supply chain disruptions and additional cost pressures, we are managing them adeptly and I am confident in our ability to continue successfully executing our key strategies as we move through the fourth quarter and into fiscal 2022. I am pleased to report that holiday selling to date has been robust and I firmly believe that we will deliver a strong finish to a fantastic year. I am incredibly grateful to our team and share their pride in what we have delivered for our customers and our shareholders." Summary of Results   Net Sales by Operating Group Third Quarter   ($ in millions) 2021 2020 2019   Tommy Bahama $148.5 $94.9 $127.0   Lilly Pulitzer 72.2 53.7 71.7   Southern Tide 13.2 10.0 9.1   Lanier Apparel (exited) 4.2 10.8 28.8   Other 9.7 5.7 4.7   Total Company $247.7 $175.1 $241.2 Third Quarter of Fiscal 2021 Compared to Third Quarter of Fiscal 2019 Net sales increased 3% to $248 million compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Excluding Lanier Apparel, where operations were effectively exited during the third quarter of fiscal 2021, net sales increased 15% to $243 million compared to the $212 million of net sales in the same period of fiscal 2019. Full-price direct to consumer sales grew 40% to $143 million, with growth in each of our brands compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Full-price retail sales grew 13% and full-price e-commerce sales grew 100% compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Restaurant sales grew 14% to $20 million compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2019. The quarter benefited from strong increases at existing locations as well as the operation of five additional Marlin Bar locations. Off-price sales in our direct to consumer channels, which include the Lilly Pulitzer e-commerce flash clearance sale and Tommy Bahama outlet store sales, decreased by $12 million compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Sales from the Lilly Pulitzer e-commerce flash clearance sale were $19 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $31 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. More inventory sold at full price in the spring and summer resulting in less inventory for the clearance event. Wholesale sales were $53 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $78 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease was primarily due to $25 million of lower sales in Lanier Apparel as we finalized the inventory liquidation in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Gross margin, on both a GAAP and adjusted basis, increased to 62% compared to 55% in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. The gross margin improvement was fueled by strong full-price sales, a shift in sales mix towards full-price direct to consumer channels, and higher initial gross margin, partially offset by higher freight costs. SG&A was $138 million, or 56% of net sales, compared to $134 million, or 56% of net sales, in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. A non-recurring lease termination charge and increased advertising expense in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 were partially offset by decreases in employment costs due to reduced headcount. On an adjusted basis, SG&A was $131 million, or 53% of net sales, compared to $134 million, or 56% of net sales, in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Royalties and other income increased to $16 million compared to $4 million of royalties and other income in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. On an adjusted basis, excluding a $12 million gain on the third quarter fiscal 2021 sale of an interest in an unconsolidated entity, royalties and other income were $4 million in the third quarters of both 2021 and 2019. Operating income increased to $31 million, or 12% of net sales, compared to $3 million, or 1% of net sales, in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. On an adjusted basis, operating income increased to $27 million, or 11% of net sales, compared to $3 million, or 1% of net sales, in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 with operating margin expansion in Tommy Bahama, Lilly Pulitzer and Southern Tide. The effective tax rate expense in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was 15% compared to an effective tax rate benefit of 25% in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 and an effective tax rate expense of 34% in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. The third quarter of fiscal 2021 included the utilization of previous capital losses to substantially offset a gain recognized on the sale of an interest in an unconsolidated entity. On an adjusted basis, the effective tax rate expense was 24% in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 as compared to a benefit of 23% in the third quarter of fiscal 2020, and an effective tax rate expense of 33% in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Balance Sheet and Liquidity On a FIFO basis, inventory decreased 24% compared to October 31, 2020. Excluding Lanier Apparel, FIFO inventory decreased 17% compared to October 31, 2020. As planned, inventory levels declined year over year with prudent purchases of seasonal inventory. Higher than expected sales during the first nine months of fiscal 2021 and ongoing enhancements to enterprise order management systems also contributed to the decrease. On a LIFO basis, inventory decreased 39%, or 31% excluding Lanier Apparel, compared to October 31, 2020. As of October 30, 2021, the Company had a strong liquidity position with $188 million of cash and short-term investments and no borrowings outstanding under its revolving credit agreement. In the first nine months of fiscal 2021, cash provided by operating activities was $157 million compared to $23 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020. Outlook The strength of the Company's direct to consumer business is expected to continue through the remainder of 2021. For the fourth quarter, the Company expects net sales to be between $285 million and $295 million compared to net sales of $221 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 and $298 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. Lanier Apparel had sales of $9 million and $20 million during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 and 2019, respectively, with no sales expected during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. The Company expects earnings per share on a GAAP and adjusted basis in a range of $1.20 to $1.35 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. This compares with a loss of $0.74 per share on a GAAP basis and an adjusted earnings per share of $0.13 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, and earnings of $0.90 per share on a GAAP basis and an adjusted earnings per share of $1.09 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. For the full fiscal year, the Company now expects net sales in a range of $1.127 billion to $1.137 billion as compared to net sales of $749 million in fiscal 2020 and $1.123 billion in fiscal 2019.  Lanier Apparel is expected to have sales of $25 million for fiscal 2021 and had sales of $39 million and $95 million during fiscal 2020 and 2019, respectively. In fiscal 2021, GAAP earnings per share are expected to be between $7.49 and $7.64. Adjusted earnings per share are expected to be between $7.52 and $7.67. This compares to a loss on a GAAP basis of $5.77 per share and an adjusted loss of $1.81 per share in fiscal 2020, and earnings of $4.05 per share on a GAAP basis and $4.32 per share on an adjusted basis in fiscal 2019. The Company's effective tax rate for the full year fiscal 2021 is expected to be approximately 22%.

Basis of Presentation All per share information is presented on a diluted basis. Non-GAAP Financial Information The Company reports its consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  To supplement these consolidated financial results, management believes that a presentation and discussion of certain financial measures on an adjusted basis, which exclude certain non-operating or discrete gains, charges or other items, may provide a more meaningful basis on which investors may compare the Company's ongoing results of operations between periods.  These measures include adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, and adjusted operating income, among others. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operational, and planning decisions to evaluate the Company's ongoing performance. Management also uses these adjusted financial measures to discuss its business with investment and other financial institutions, its board of directors and others.  Reconciliations of these adjusted measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are presented in tables included at the end of this release.

Star Group, L.P. Reports Fiscal 2021 Fourth Quarter Results

STAMFORD, Conn., Dec. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Star Group, L.P. (the "Company" or "Star") (NYSE:SGU), a home energy distributor and services provider, today announced financial results for the fiscal 2021 fourth quarter and year ended September 30, 2021. Three Months Ended September 30, 2021 Compared to the Three Months Ended September 30, 2020For the fiscal 2021 fourth quarter, Star reported a 29.1 percent increase in total revenue to $236.6 million compared with $183.3 million in the prior-year period, reflecting an increase in selling prices and higher volume of home heating oil and propane sold. The volume of home heating oil and propane sold during the fiscal 2021 fourth quarter increased by 1.8 million gallons, or 9.7 percent, to 20.8 million gallons as the additional volume provided by acquisitions was only partially offset by net customer attrition. Star's net loss declined by $7.0 million in the quarter, to $23.2 million, due to a favorable change in the fair value of derivative instruments of $6.6 million and the absence of a non-cash charge of $5.7 million recorded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 relating to the sale of certain non-strategic assets, subsequently completed in October 2020. The positive impact from these factors was partially offset by a decline in the Company's income tax benefit of $4.5 million. The Company reported a fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA loss (a non-GAAP measure defined below) that increased by $0.4 million, to $27.6 million, as higher operating expenses were almost entirely offset by higher home heating oil and propane volumes and the impact from improved home heating oil and propane per gallon margins. "I'm pleased to say that, as we turn the corner on fiscal 2021, we ended the year with solid adjusted EBITDA and underlying results, even with slightly lower volumes and the lingering impact from COVID-19 on certain parts of our business," said Jeff Woosnam, Star Group's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Given that we did not benefit as much from our weather hedge in 2021 – nor, conversely, experience unusually cold weather as in last year's fiscal third quarter – the Company performed well, which speaks to the talent of our staff, dedication to customer service, and broad operating footprint. Our net customer attrition was in line with fiscal 2020, and we completed five acquisitions which, in aggregate, generate nearly 13 million gallons of product annually. While facing the normal challenges associated with higher oil and propane costs going forward, we're ready for the next heating season and remain dedicated to delivering high quality service and solid shareholder returns." Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2021 Compared to Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2020For fiscal 2021, Star reported a 2.0 percent increase in total revenue to $1.5 billion, as higher sales of motor fuel and other petroleum products and greater installation and service revenue more than offset the impact from lower home heating oil and propane volumes and reduced selling prices during the heating season. The volume of home heating oil and propane sold during fiscal 2021 decreased by 7.7 million gallons, or 2.4 percent, to 305.9 million gallons, as slightly warmer temperatures and net customer attrition more than offset the impact from acquisitions and other factors. Temperatures in Star's geographic areas of operation for fiscal 2021 were 1.1 percent warmer than during the prior year comparable period and 10.7 percent warmer than normal, as reported by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Net income rose by $31.8 million, to $87.7 million, primarily due to a favorable change in the fair value of derivative instruments of $38.9 million, the absence of a non-cash charge of $5.7 million recorded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 relating to the subsequent sale of certain non-strategic assets, and lower interest expense of $1.9 million, partially offset by an increase in income tax expense of $13.1 million and a $2.8 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $2.8 million, to $127.5 million, in fiscal 2021. Lower total operating expenses in the base business of $5.8 million, higher home heating oil and propane margins and the Adjusted EBITDA from acquisitions of $2.8 million were more than offset by a $6.7 million decline in the benefit recorded under the Company's weather hedge contract and the impact from lower home heating oil and propane volumes. While temperatures were warmer for fiscal 2021 than in the prior year's comparable period, temperatures during the weather hedge period for fiscal 2021 were colder than in fiscal 2020, thus the lower weather hedge benefit. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP Financial Measures)EBITDA (Earnings from continuing operations before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization) and Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings from continuing operations before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, (increase) decrease in the fair value of derivatives, other income (loss), net, multiemployer pension plan withdrawal charge, gain or loss on debt redemption, goodwill impairment, and other non-cash and non-operating charges) are non-GAAP financial measures that are used as supplemental financial measures by management and external users of the Company's financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks and research analysts, to assess Star's position with regard to the following: compliance with certain financial covenants included in our debt agreements; financial performance without regard to financing methods, capital structure, income taxes or historical cost basis; operating performance and return on invested capital compared to those of other companies in the retail distribution of refined petroleum products, without regard to financing methods and capital structure; ability to generate cash sufficient to pay interest on our indebtedness and to make distributions to our partners; and the viability of acquisitions and capital expenditure projects and the overall rates of return of alternative investment opportunities. The method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA may not be consistent with that of other companies, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA both have limitations as analytical tools and so should not be viewed in isolation but in conjunction with measurements that are computed in accordance with GAAP. Some of the limitations of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are as follows: EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect cash used for capital expenditures; although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated or amortized often will have to be replaced and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the cash requirements for such replacements; EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital; EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the cash necessary to make payments of interest or principal on indebtedness; and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the cash required to pay taxes. REMINDER:Members of Star's management team will host a webcast and conference call at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time tomorrow, December 9, 2021. The webcast will be accessible on the company's website, at www.stargrouplp.com, and the telephone number for the conference call is 888-346-3470 (or 412-317-5169 for international callers). About Star Group, L.P.Star Group, L.P. is a full service provider specializing in the sale of home heating products and services to residential and commercial customers to heat their homes and buildings. The Company also sells and services heating and air conditioning equipment to its home heating oil and propane customers and, to a lesser extent, provides these offerings to customers outside of its home heating oil and propane customer base. In certain of Star's marketing areas, the Company provides plumbing services, primarily to its home heating oil and propane customer base. Star also sells diesel, gasoline and home heating oil on a delivery only basis. We believe Star is the nation's largest retail distributor of home heating oil based upon sales volume. Including its propane locations, Star serves customers in the more northern and eastern states within the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic U.S. regions. Additional information is available by obtaining the Company's SEC filings at www.sec.gov and by visiting Star's website at www.stargrouplp.com, where unit holders may request a hard copy of Star's complete audited financial statements free of charge. Forward Looking InformationThis news release includes "forward-looking statements" which represent the Company's expectations or beliefs concerning future events that involve risks and uncertainties, including those associated with the severity and duration of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, pandemic, the pandemic's impact on the U.S. and global economies, the timing, scope and effectiveness of federal, state and local governmental responses to the pandemic, the effect of weather conditions on our financial performance; the price and supply of the products that we sell; the consumption patterns of our customers; our ability to obtain satisfactory gross profit margins; our ability to obtain new customers and retain existing customers; our ability to make strategic acquisitions; the impact of litigation; our ability to contract for our current and future supply needs; natural gas conversions; future union relations and the outcome of current and future union negotiations; the impact of current and future governmental regulations, including climate change, environmental, health and safety regulations; the ability to attract and retain employees; customer creditworthiness; counterparty creditworthiness; marketing plans; cyber-attacks; inflation, global supply chain issues, labor shortages, general economic conditions and new technology. All statements other than statements of historical facts included in this news release are forward-looking statements. Without limiting the foregoing, the words "believe," "anticipate," "plan," "expect," "seek," "estimate" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct and actual results may differ materially from those projected as a result of certain risks and uncertainties. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those set forth under the heading "Risk Factors" and "Business Strategy" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K (the "Form 10-K") for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Company's expectations ("Cautionary Statements") are disclosed in this news release and in the Company's Form 10-K and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Currently, one of the most significant factors, however, is the potential adverse effect of the pandemic of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, on the financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and performance of the Company and its customers and counterparties and the global economy and financial markets. The extent to which COVID-19 impacts us and our customers will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the scope, severity and duration of the pandemic, the actions taken to contain the pandemic or mitigate its impact, and the direct and indirect economic effects of the pandemic and containment measures, among others. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to the Company or persons acting on its behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the Cautionary Statements. Unless otherwise required by law, the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise after the date of this news release.

Nuvei remains focused on executing against its strategy. Investors are encouraged to read the Company's financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021 for more details on Nuvei's performance and its outlook.
