REPORTS RESULTS FOR THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2021 - Form 8-K

REPORTS RESULTS FOR THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2021

Dover Motorsports, Inc. (NYSE: DVD) today reported its results for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

We hosted the Firefly Music Festival on our property during the third quarter of 2021. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancelation of the Firefly Music Festival and caused all six of our NASCAR races to be held without fans during the third quarter of 2020. Accordingly, the results for the third quarter of 2021 are not comparable to the third quarter of 2020.

Revenues for the third quarter of 2021 were $1,238,000 and related primarily to the Firefly Music Festival and other miscellaneous revenues. Revenues for the third quarter of 2020 were $38,044,000 and were almost entirely related to the six NASCAR events held during the quarter. Operating and marketing expenses were $839,000 compared to $22,425,000 in the third quarter of 2020. Both decreases were primarily attributable to the aforementioned schedule changes.

General and administrative expenses increased to $2,040,000 in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $1,878,000 in the third quarter of 2020, primarily from the reopening of Nashville Superspeedway.

Depreciation expense increased to $942,000 from $756,000 in the third quarter of 2020, primarily from depreciation for the capital expenditures related to the reopening of Nashville Superspeedway.

In July of 2020 we sold approximately 97 acres of land in Nashville for proceeds less closing costs of approximately $6,460,000, resulting in a gain of $4,843,000.

Loss before income taxes for the third quarter of 2021 was ($2,513,000) compared to earnings before income taxes for the third quarter of 2020 of $18,025,000. The 2020 results include the $4,843,000 gain on sale of the Nashville land.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2021 was ($1,865,000) or ($.05) per diluted share compared to net earnings for the third quarter of 2020 of $13,190,000 or $.36 per diluted share.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, revenues where $51,291,000 compared with $38,358,000 in the prior year. Net earnings were $14,678,000 or $0.40 per diluted share compared with $9,361,000 or $0.26 per diluted share in the comparable period of the prior year.

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had no outstanding indebtedness and approximately $23.7 million in available cash.

The Company announced yesterday that its Board of Directors declared a semi-annual cash dividend on both classes of common stock of $.04 per share. The dividend will be payable on December 10, 2021 to shareholders of record at the close of business on November 10, 2021.
