Envela Overview


The Company operates through two recommerce business segments represented by its two direct subsidiaries, DGSE and ECHG. DGSE focuses on the recommercialization of luxury hard assets, and ECHG focuses on the recommercialization of business IT equipment and consumer electronic devices.

Through DGSE, the Company recommercializes luxury hard assets and operates the Dallas Gold and Silver Exchange, Charleston Gold & Diamond Exchange, and Bullion Express brands. Through ECHG, the Company recommercializes business IT equipment and consumer electronic devices and operates Echo, ITAD USA, Teladvance, CEX and Avail. Echo focuses on end-of-life electronics recycling and sustainability, ITAD USA provides IT equipment disposition, including compliance and data sanitization services, Teladvance, CEX and Avail operate as value-added resellers by providing offerings and services to companies looking either to upgrade capabilities or dispose of equipment. In addition to its operations through DGSE and ECHG, Envela also leases unused space at its Company headquarters in Irving, Texas to commercial tenants.



DGSE Business Overview


DGSE is headquartered in Dallas, Texas. DGSE focuses on sustainable, authenticated recommerce of luxury hard assets, including diamonds. Its retail strategy is anchored in being an information resource for clients, bringing transparency to purchase and sale transactions, and offering value and liquidity to those seeking to buy, sell or trade jewelry, fine watches, diamonds, rare coins and currency as well as other valuables. DGSE wholesales and retails these items through its Charleston Gold & Diamond Exchange and Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange operations. DGSE has specialized in buying and selling jewelry for over 40 years, making our expert staff among the best in the business. DGSE also maintains a number of related operations, including precious-metal bullion exchange and refiner partnerships, on-site jewelry and watch repair and restoration at its Dallas flagship location, consignment offerings and partnerships, and design of custom bridal and fashion jewelry.

DGSE Recommerce Activities


Our ability to offer quality pre-owned goods at prices significantly lower than original retail prices attracts value-conscious customers. The gross profit on sales of inventory depends primarily on our assessment of the purchase value at the time the property is purchased and our ability to sell that merchandise in a timely manner. As a significant portion of our inventory and sales involve gold and jewelry, our results can be influenced by the market price of gold and diamonds.

DGSE Precious Metals Pricing and Business Impact

DGSE's business, similar to the jewelry industry overall, is effected by fluctuations in precious-metals pricing. Such fluctuations, particularly with respect to gold which accounts for a majority of DGSE's merchandise costs, can have significant impact on its earnings and cash availability.

Because DGSE buys and resells precious metals, it is impacted by changes in precious metal pricing which rises and falls based upon global supply and demand dynamics, with the greatest impact on us relating to gold as it represents a significant portion of the precious metal in which we trade. Gold prices surged during the beginnings of the COVID-19 pandemic, rising steeply during Fiscal 2020 but receding somewhat toward the end of Fiscal 2020. Gold prices started January 1, 2021 at $1,891 an ounce, as determined by the London AM Fix and dipped to a low of $1,683 an ounce on March 30, 2021. Gold then began to rebound throughout the remainder of the year closing at $1,820 on December 31, 2021, as determined by the London AM Fix. During fiscal year 2021, gold prices receded 4% from December 31, 2020. Gold rose 7% to $1,942 during the first three months of Fiscal 2022.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the recommerce business in unpredictable ways. Although there are variants of COVID-19 affecting the health of the United States, employment figures improved throughout 2021. The unemployment rate improved from over six percent (6%) in January of 2021 to four percent (4%), as of January 2022.

When prices rise for gold or other precious metals, DGSE has observed that individual sellers tend to be more likely to sell their unwanted crafted-precious-metal items and at the same time retail customers tend to buy bullion and other gold products so as not to miss out on potential market gains. When prices decline for gold or other precious metals, DGSE has observed that individual buyers tend to buy due to the decrease in gold prices. While the precious-metals industry has slowed, our focus will be to grow our jewelry, diamond and fine watch business, as well as maintain our business of purchasing crafted-precious-metal items, a diversified strategy which we believe will continue to grow and be a profit engine in the future.

In addition, DGSE depends on purchasing products and materials from secondary markets. We are reliant on our ability to obtain an adequate supply of products and material at prices or other terms acceptable to it.



DGSE Growth and Expansion


Our strategy is to expand the number of locations we operate through opening new ("de novo") locations in both current markets of Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas and Charleston, South Carolina and potential new markets. Our ability to add new stores is dependent on several variables, such as projected achievement of internal investment hurdles, the availability of acceptable sites, the regulatory environment, local zoning ordinances, access to capital and the availability of qualified personnel. We see opportunity for further expansion through new openings in the United States. The Company expects capital expenditures over the next twelve months including potential purchase of additional properties by DGSE.

ECHG Business Overview


ECHG owns and operates Echo, ITAD USA, Teladvance, CEX and Avail, through which it primarily buys and resells or recycles consumer electronic components and IT equipment. Echo focuses on end-of-life electronics recycling and also offers disposal transportation and product tracking, ITAD USA provides IT equipment disposition including compliance and data sanitization services and Teladvance, CEX and Avail operates as value-added resellers by providing offerings and services to companies looking to either upgrade capabilities or dispose of equipment. In addition, as a result of the CExchange Transaction, Teladvance now offers retail customers a trade-in program to offer their customers the ability to upgrade their old phones through a trade-in program. Like DGSE, ECHG also maintains relationships with refiners or recyclers to which it sells extracted valuable materials from electronics and IT equipment that are not appropriate for resale or reuse.




ECHG Recommerce Activities



A portion of ECHG's business depends on obtaining products and material from secondary markets and is reliant on its ability to obtain an adequate supply of products and material at prices and other items acceptable to it. Although we believe that the long-term prospects for the industry remain bright, but because we do not have unlimited backlogs, our business can be promptly affected by short-term market fluctuations.

ECHG Metals Pricing and Business Impact

ECHG's recycling business is affected by precious and other non-ferrous metal prices, which fluctuate based upon global supply-and-demand dynamics, among other things, with the greatest impact relating to gold. Recent fluctuations in gold prices are discussed above.



ECHG Growth and Expansion


ECHG's strategy is to expand both organically and through acquisitions. As an organization, ECHG strives to deliver value through organic growth, high customer loyalty and retention as well as strategic acquisitions. ECHG is committed to continuous innovation. Many of ECHG's clients have made commitments to going carbon neutral over the next few years and ECHG sees the potential to further expand key relationships as it partners with them in more ways to help them achieve their goal. With an emphasis on increasing recurring revenues and expanding our margins, ECHG believes its organic strategy will ultimately drive strong financial performance, including cash flow to support our acquisition strategy. ECHG's business strategy has always included pursuing synergistic acquisitions, and ECHG's plans to continue to expand its business by making strategic acquisitions and regularly seeking suitable acquisition targets to enhance its growth.

For additional information regarding ECHG, see "Item 1. Business-Operating Segments-ECHG Segment." in the Company's 2021 Annual Report.



COVID-19


The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected global economic business conditions. Future sales on products like ours could decline or fluctuate due to increased or fluctuating commodities prices, particularly gold. Although we are continuing to monitor and assess the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ultimate impact is highly uncertain and subject to change. The duration of any such impact cannot be predicted, nor can the timing of the development, distribution and acceptance of effective vaccines, booster shots or other treatments for potential COVID-19 divergent strains, including the Delta and Omnicron variants. In addition, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are subject to, among other things, the effect of government responses to the pandemic on our operations, including vaccine mandates, impacts of the pandemic on global and domestic economic conditions, including with respect to commercial activity, our customers and business partners, as well as consumer preferences and demand.
