Targeting $100 million of annualized revenue as a 2024 exit run rate
Celebration, FL, Dec. 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — La Rosa Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: LRHC) (“La Rosa” or the “Company”), a holding company for five agent-centric, technology-integrated, cloud-based, multi-service real estate segments, today announced that it has acquired a 100% interest in the Company’s franchisee – La Rosa Realty CW Properties, LLC (“CW Properties”) located in Longwood, Florida.
CW Properties generated revenue of $3.4 million and had positive net income in 2022. The franchisee provides residential and commercial real estate brokerage services. It also provides coaching and support services to agents on a fee basis.
Joe La Rosa, CEO of the Company, commented, “We continue to execute on our planned roll-up strategy of acquiring franchisees, as this is our third real estate brokerage franchisee acquisition this year. Our goal is to acquire an additional 9 franchisees over the next six to eight months. We also have other acquisitions in the pipeline that we are actively evaluating. These acquisitions would contribute to both our top-line and bottom-line growth, as we believe that our current infrastructure is set up to support five times our current agent count. Our goal is to reach an annualized revenue run rate of $100 million before the end of 2024. While we historically operated profitably prior to our IPO in 2021, we believe our projected revenue growth will ensure our return to profitability as an exit run rate in 2024, even after factoring in our new costs and overhead as a public company. In our view, the fact that both our revenue and profitability continue to improve, despite the current market, sets us apart from most other brokerages in the industry — a testament to the strength and scalability of our business model. We look forward to providing updates on our other planned acquisitions in the near future.”
