NEW YORK

MEDIROM Healthcare Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq CM: MRM), a holistic healthcare company based in Japan (the “Company”), today announced its preliminary, unaudited financial results for the year ended December 31, 2022, prepared under Japanese GAAP (“JGAAP”). These preliminary financial results and management’s estimates included in this press release are unreviewed, unaudited, and preliminary, are prepared solely in accordance with JGAAP, have not been reviewed or audited under U.S. GAAP, and are based solely on information available to the management of the Company and management’s assumptions and expectations as of the date of this press release, which remain subject to change. Actual results for the year ended December 31, 2022 remain subject to the completion of management’s reviews and reconciliations and/or adjustments under U.S. GAAP, the Company’s other financial closing procedures, and the audit by the independent auditor in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and may differ from these estimated preliminary results due to the completion of the Company’s financial closing procedures, the audit under U.S. GAAP, and other developments that may arise during the audit process. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on this preliminary information. See “Important Notice Regarding these Preliminary Financial Results and Management’s Estimates” below.

The Company is currently working with its independent registered public accounting firm to complete the audit of its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2022 in accordance with U.S. GAAP and to prepare its Annual Report on Form 20-F containing the audited financial statements for full year 2022. The Company intends to file such Annual Report by the filing deadline prescribed by the SEC.

Preliminary Financial Results Overview for the Year Ended December 31, 2022 under JGAAP:

  • The unaudited, preliminary total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2022 is expected to be approximately JPY6.5 billion ($49.3 million (1)), representing a projected increase of JPY1.1 billion ($8.3 million (1)) from the total revenue reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP for the year ended December 31, 2021. Such increase was primarily due to the full-year revenue contribution of two subsidiaries, SAWAN and ZACC, which were acquired by us during 2021, an increase in the revenue from sales of our directly-owned salons to investors, which sales were commenced in the fourth quarter of 2021, and an increase in sales at our directly-operated salons as a result of the recovery from COVID-19 in 2022.
  • The unaudited, preliminary operating expenses are expected to be approximately JPY6.26 billion ($47.5 million (1)) for the year ended December 31, 2022, representing a projected increase of JPY380 million ($2.9 million (1)) from the operating expenses reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP for the year ended December 31, 2021. Such increase was primarily due to an increase in outsourcing fees paid to contract-based therapists, and increased payroll expense for therapists, hair dressers, and corporate staff in 2022.
  • The unaudited, preliminary operating income is expected to be approximately JPY240 million ($1.8 million (1)) for the year ended December 31, 2022, representing a projected increase of JPY711 million ($5.4 million (1)) from the operating loss reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP for the year ended December 31, 2021. Such increase was primarily due to the increase in total revenue outpacing the increase in operating expenses in 2022.

Management Discussion

Kouji Eguchi, CEO of the MEDIROM Healthcare Technologies, said, “We are pleased with the revenue growth and improved operating income achieved under local GAAP during the year ended December 31, 2022, based on the unaudited, preliminary financial results prepared under JGAAP. Our directly-operated salons and our franchised salons contributed in very complementary ways to the strong operational results of the year, as well as the growth of the sales of directly-owned salons to investors, which has become our new revenue model. In addition, the revenue contribution from our acquired salons, which reflected the implementation of our M&A strategy, coupled with the encouraging recovery from COVID-19, led to a steady operating performance this year. Although COVID-19 continued to have an impact on the general economy in 2022, the entire MEDIROM team coalesced around our goals and were able to mitigate the impact and finish the year on a strong note. We intend to work diligently with our independent auditor to complete the audit of our 2022 financial results under U.S. GAAP. We hope to continue our growth momentum in 2023.”

The Company expects the actual results may differ from these preliminary results contained in this press release in revenue recognition of franchise membership fees (as-billed basis in this preliminary result while as-earned basis during the estimated franchising periods after conversion) when converted from JGAAP into U.S. GAAP, the impact of which, based upon management’s current assumption and estimates, is believed to be insignificant. Other potential changes from the these preliminary financial results could result from the conversion into U.S. GAAP , among others, of the following line items: (1) recognition of impairment losses on our long-lived salon assets; (2) recognition of impairment losses on our goodwill and other intangible assets; (3) increase/decrease in allowance or provisional expenses; (4) increase/decrease in cost of goods sold or inventories, particularly those related to MOTHER Bracelet, which are currently calculated based on standard costs and subject to adjustments into actual costs primarily due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
