~Fourth Quarter Revenue Exceeds $308 Million~

~Generates Fourth Quarter GAAP Diluted EPS of $0.31 and Adjusted Diluted EPS of $0.38~

~Fiscal 2019 Revenue Increases over 5% to $1.24 Billion~

~Company Provides Annual Guidance for Fiscal 2020~

MarineMax, Inc. (HZO), the nation’s largest recreational boat and yacht retailer, today announced results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2019.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2019, revenue was $308.1 million as compared to $308.6 million for the same quarter last year. Same-store sales for the quarter declined 9%, but were up against 22% growth for the comparable period last year. Included in the quarter ended September 30, 2019, was $2.3 million of net adjustments before taxes, for unusual items, or $0.07 per diluted share. These items are related to the Company’s store optimization plan that resulted in the closing of eight overlapping locations and Hurricane Dorian related costs, which were partially offset by a final payment received from the Company’s settlement with the Deepwater Horizon Settlement Program. Included in the quarter ended September 30, 2018, was $1.4 million of adjustments before taxes, or $0.05 per diluted share, related to contingent consideration obligation estimates associated with acquisitions made by the Company in prior years, which reduced expenses.

Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, was $6.7 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to net income of $11.5 million, or $0.50 per diluted share in the comparable period prior year. Excluding the impact from the net adjustments in 2019 and the gain in 2018, adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, was $0.38, compared to $0.45 for the same period in the prior year.

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, the Company’s revenue grew over 5% to approximately $1.24 billion compared to $1.18 billion in fiscal 2018. Same-store sales for the year were up over 1% which was on top of 10% growth for the prior fiscal year. Included in the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, was $1.8 million of net adjustments before taxes, for unusual items, or $0.06 per diluted share. These items are related to the Company’s store optimization plan and Hurricane Dorian related costs, which were partially offset by a final payment received from the Company’s settlement with the Deepwater Horizon Settlement Program and other unusual gains. Included in fiscal 2018 results is the $1.4 million before taxes, or $0.05 per diluted share for the contingent consideration adjustment noted above as well as non-recurring unusual costs of $1.2 million before taxes, or $0.04 per diluted share.

Net income for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, was $36.0 million, or $1.57 per diluted share, compared to net income of $39.3 million, or $1.71 per diluted share in the prior year. Excluding the unusual items in both periods, adjusted net income was $37.3 million and diluted earnings per share was $1.63 as compared to $39.1 million or $1.70 per diluted share in the prior year.

W. Brett McGill, Chief Executive Officer and President stated, “The MarineMax team’s effort in the fourth quarter resulted in significant growth in units and in our higher margin businesses, against a backdrop of a challenged industry and a very large year-over-year comparison of 22% growth in the September quarter last year. We were also energized by the revenue and margin contribution from Fraser Yachts, our global mega yacht brokerage and services business that we acquired early in our fiscal fourth quarter. With our customer centric approach that emphasizes the multitude of advantages derived from the boating lifestyle, along with our team’s intensity, we overcame some of the prevailing industry malaise that has seemingly permeated the entire year. In this environment, we are proud that we grew annual comparable unit sales, increased our product margins and expanded our higher margin businesses.”

Mr. McGill continued, “Looking ahead, our store optimization plan should help us as we work to better align expenses with current industry conditions while not impacting revenue or as importantly, our ability to service our customers. Likewise, we are focused on reducing our inventory levels and we will utilize the upcoming boat show season and select targeted events, as well as reduced orders, to bring inventory in line with industry trends. We remain committed to further building upon our success by growing our higher margin businesses, exploring accretive opportunistic acquisitions and the ongoing expansion in our digital channel to drive earnings along with shareholder value.”

2020 Guidance

Based on current business conditions, retail trends and other factors, the Company currently expects fully taxed earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $1.58 to $1.68 for fiscal 2020. This compares to a non-GAAP adjusted, but fully taxed, diluted earnings per share of $1.63 in fiscal 2019. These expectations do not take into account, or give effect for, material acquisitions that may be completed by the Company during fiscal 2020 or other unforeseen events, including changes in global economic conditions.
