$FRMO Corp. Reports Indirect Participation in Merger Plan Between MGEX and Miami International Holdings
Press Release | 08/25/2020
On August 14, 2020, The Minneapolis Grain Exchange (“MGEX”) announced an agreement to demutualize the exchange and subsequently be acquired by Miami International Holdings (“MIH”), parent company of the MIAX Exchange Group. MGEX is the largest position in South LaSalle Partners L.P., which is a strategic investment of FRMO Corp. and one of its largest investments. Likewise, MIH is a significant holding of FRMO Corp. The transaction, which is expected to close in late 2020, has been approved by the Board of Directors of each company and is subject to, among other customary closing conditions, MGEX membership approval. The companies’ announcement may be viewed at this link on the MGEX website:

http://www.mgex.com/documents/MIAX_MGEX_Joint_Press_Release08142020_000.pdf

The transaction joins strategically complementary faculties. MIH, which is primarily an options exchange, with over 10% market share in U.S. equity options, is widely considered one of the most technologically advanced exchanges in the U.S. Among other recent important developments, early last year MIAX established the first alternative to the VIX, the MIAX SPIKES volatility futures contract. MGEX, in addition to its strength in agricultural commodity futures contracts and rapid growth, is a Designated Contract Market (DCM) and Derivatives Clearing Organization (DCO), which allows it to list, trade, and clear futures products. The combination of each firm’s respective strengths should vastly increase their joint scope for market presence and product development.

Historical MGEX membership prices may be also be viewed on the exchange’s website:

Press Release | 08/17/2020
FRMO Corp. (the “Company” or “FRMO”) (OTC Pink:FRMO) today reported its financial results for the fiscal year 2020, ended May 31, 2020.

Financial Highlights

FRMO’s book value as of May 31, 2020 was $161.9 million ($3.68 per share on a fully diluted basis), including $46.9 million of non-controlling interests. This compares with book value at the prior fiscal year ended May 31, 2019 of $174.9 million ($3.98 per share), including $48.6 million of non-controlling interests. Current assets, comprised primarily of cash and equivalents and equity securities, amounted to $104.8 million as of May 31, 2020, and $118.3 million as of May 31, 2019. Total liabilities were $11.8 million as of May 31, 2020, and $16.7 million as of May 31, 2019, comprised primarily of securities sold, not yet purchased and deferred taxes.

Annual net (loss) income attributable to the Company in the fiscal year ended May 31, 2020 fell to $(14.6) million, or $(0.33) per share, from $4.7 Million, or $0.11 per share, a year earlier.

FRMO’s net (loss) income attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized (loss) gain from equity securities net of taxes for the three months ended May 31, 2020 was $(7,811,801) ($(0.18) per diluted share) compared to $3,398,500 ($0.08 per diluted share) for the three months ended May 31, 2019. For the year ended May 31, 2020, the amount was $(9,204,355) ($(0.21) per share) compared to $9,027,157 ($0.21 per share) for the same period in the prior year. Net (loss) income attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized (losses) gains from equity securities net of taxes is a measure not based on GAAP and is defined and reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in “Information Regarding Non-GAAP Measures” at the end of this release.

(“the Company”). Due to the common control and ownership between HKHA and the Company’s principal stockholders and directors, HKHA has been consolidated within the Company’s financial statements. The noncontrolling interest of 80.77% and 84.51% in HKHA has been eliminated from results of operations for the periods ended May 31, 2020 and May 31, 2019.

Further details are available in the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2020.

Information Regarding Non-GAAP Measures

Net income (loss) attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gain (loss) from equity securities is net income (loss) attributable to the Company exclusive of unrealized gains or losses from equity securities, net of tax. Net income (loss) attributable to the Company is the GAAP measure most closely comparable to net income (loss) attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gain (loss) from equity securities.

Management uses net income attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gain (loss) from equity securities, along with other measures, to gauge the Company’s performance and evaluate results, which can be skewed when including unrealized gains (losses) from equity securities, which may vary significantly between periods. Net income (loss) attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gain (loss) from equity securities are provided as supplemental information, and are not a substitute for net income (loss) attributable to the Company and do not reflect the Company’s overall profitability.

The following table reconciles the net income (loss) attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gain (loss) from equity securities to net income (loss) attributable to the Company for the periods indicated:

Information Regarding Non-GAAP Measures

Net income (loss) attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gain (loss) from equity securities is net income (loss) attributable to the Company exclusive of unrealized gains or losses from equity securities, net of tax. Net income (loss) attributable to the Company is the GAAP measure most closely comparable to net income (loss) attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gain (loss) from equity securities.

Management uses net income attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gain (loss) from equity securities, along with other measures, to gauge the Company’s performance and evaluate results, which can be skewed when including unrealized gains (losses) from equity securities, which may vary significantly between periods. Net income (loss) attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gain (loss) from equity securities are provided as supplemental information, and are not a substitute for net income (loss) attributable to the Company and do not reflect the Company’s overall profitability.

The following table reconciles the net income (loss) attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gain (loss) from equity securities to net income (loss) attributable to the Company for the periods indicated:

https://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/FRMO/news/FRMO-Corp.-Announces-First-Quarter-2020-Financial-Results-and-Conference-Call?id=243344


Press Release | 10/15/2019
FRMO Corp. (the “Company” or “FRMO”) (OTC Pink: FRMO) today reported its financial results for the 2020 first quarter, which ended August 31, 2019 (May fiscal year).

Financial Highlights

FRMO’s book value as of August 31, 2019 was $172.5 million ($3.92 per share on a fully diluted basis), including $45.2 million of non-controlling interests. The figure from the prior fiscal year-end as of May 31, 2019 was $175.0 million ($3.98 per share), including $48.6 million of non-controlling interests. Current assets, comprised primarily of cash and equivalents and equity securities, amounted to $115.9 million as of August 31, 2019, and $118.3 million as of May 31, 2019. Total liabilities were $16.7 million as of August 31, 2019, unchanged from $16.7 million as of May 31, 2019, comprised primarily of securities sold, not yet purchased and deferred taxes.

FRMO’s net (loss) income attributable to the Company for the three months ended August 31, 2019 was $(218,862) (($0.00) per share basic and diluted) compared to $3,211,123 ($0.07 per share) for the quarter ended August 31, 2018.

For the first quarter of 2020, comprehensive (loss) income attributable to the Company was $(218,862) compared to $3,211,123 in the prior year.

FRMO’s net (loss) income attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gain (loss) from equity securities net of taxes for the three months ended August 31, 2019 was $(45,884) (($0.00) per diluted share) compared to $3,215,997 ($0.07 per share) for the three months ended August 31, 2018. Net (loss) income attributable to the Company excluding the effect of unrealized gains (losses) from equity securities net of taxes is a measure not based on GAAP and is defined and reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in “Information Regarding Non-GAAP Measures” at the end of this release.

As of August 31, 2019 and May 31, 2019, the Company held a 17.34% and 15.49% equity interest in Horizon Kinetics Hard Assets LLC (“HKHA”), a company formed by Horizon Kinetics LLC and certain officers, principal stockholders and directors of FRMO Corp.(“the Company”). Due to the common control and ownership between HKHA and the Company’s principal stockholders and directors, HKHA has been consolidated within the Company’s financial statements. The noncontrolling interest of 82.66% and 84.51% in HKHA has been eliminated from results of operations for the periods ended August 31, 2019 and May 31, 2019.

Further details are available in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for the quarter ended August 31, 2019.
