MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2020 Results

MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc.
·27 mins read

VONORE, Tenn., Sept. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCFT) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2020 fourth quarter and year ended June 30, 2020.

Fourth Quarter Highlights:

  • Ended the year with stronger than anticipated retail demand across all brands and dealer inventories 40 percent to 50 percent lower vs. end of fiscal 2019.

  • Safely resumed all manufacturing operations, but production and sales heavily impacted by COVID-19 shutdowns.

  • Repaid $25.0 million on revolving credit facility and ended the quarter with strong liquidity position.

  • Net sales for the fourth quarter decreased to $51.1 million, down 58.4 percent from $122.8 million in the prior-year period.

  • Net loss was $(2.8) million or $(0.15) per diluted share.

  • Diluted Adjusted Net Loss per share, a non-GAAP measure, was $(0.10) compared to Diluted Adjusted Net Income per share of $0.85 in the prior-year period.

  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was $0.9 million compared to $23.8 million in the prior-year period.

Full Year Highlights:

  • Net sales decreased to $363.1 million, down 22.2 percent from $466.4 million in the prior year.

  • Net loss was $(24.0) million or $(1.28) per diluted share, including $56.4 million, or $(3.01) per share, of noncash goodwill and other intangible asset impairment charges related to NauticStar and Crest.

  • Diluted Adjusted Net Income per share, a non-GAAP measure, was $1.34 compared to $2.82 in the prior year.

  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, declined 44.2 percent to $44.3 million from $79.3 million in the prior year.

Fred Brightbill, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Despite the headwinds faced throughout the year, I am extremely proud of how our team embraced the challenge and continued to execute on our new customer-centric strategy, improving our quality systems and working with our dealer partners to capitalize on the unprecedented interest in boating by consumers.

Brightbill continued, “The surge in retail demand and the historically low level of dealer inventory across our brands sets us up for significant growth this year and beyond. The heightened interest in boating as a safe, fun, outdoor, family-friendly recreation is expected to endure.”

Fourth Quarter Results

Net sales for the fourth quarter were $51.1 million, a decrease of $71.7 million, or 58.4 percent, compared to $122.8 million for the prior-year period. The decrease was primarily due to lost production as a result of the COVID-19 shutdowns and supplier and workforce ramp up.

Gross profit decreased $24.1 million, or 76.5 percent, to $7.4 million compared to $31.5 million for the prior-year period, principally driven by the lower sales volumes for each reportable segment.

Gross margin declined by 11.1 percentage points, to 14.5 percent for the fourth quarter from 25.6 percent for the prior-year period, due to decreased overhead absorption as a result of the lower unit sales volumes across each reportable segment.

Operating expenses decreased $33.2 million, or 77.2 percent, to $9.8 million for the fourth quarter compared to $43.0 million for the prior-year period. This decrease was primarily due to the $31.0 million of goodwill and other intangible asset impairment charges recognized in the prior-year period. In addition, Selling and marketing and General and administrative expenses also decreased by a total of $2.2 million resulting from cost management initiatives during the quarter.

Net loss for the fourth quarter was $(2.8) million, or $(0.15) per share, compared to Net loss of $(10.1) million, or $(0.54) per share, for the prior-year period. Adjusted Net Loss of $(1.8) million, or $(0.10) per share, was computed using a tax rate of 23.0 percent. This compares to Adjusted Net Income of $16.1 million, or $0.85 per share, in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA was $0.9 million for the fourth quarter, compared to $23.8 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 1.8 percent, down from 19.4 percent in the prior-year period principally due to lower unit sales volumes caused by the COVID-19 shutdowns.

See “Non-GAAP Measures” below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Income (Loss), and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per share to the most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.

Fiscal 2020 Results

Net sales for fiscal 2020 were $363.1 million, a decrease of $103.3 million, or 22.2 percent, compared to $466.4 million for the prior year. The decrease was primarily due to:

  • lower volumes as a result of our temporary manufacturing suspension;

  • our pre-pandemic effort to reduce dealer inventory levels;

  • pre-pandemic softness in the overall saltwater fishing category;

  • and partially offset by the inclusion of Crest’s first quarter 2020 results (as Crest was acquired in the second quarter of 2019), the addition of our new Aviara brand, higher average wholesale prices for all our reportable segments, and lower sales discounts.

Gross profit decreased $37.8 million, or 33.4 percent, to $75.4 million compared to $113.1 million for the prior year, principally driven by lower sales volume for each reportable segment, higher depreciation expense, and $1.4 million in COVID-19 Shutdown Costs. This decline was partially offset by price increases for each reportable segment, the inclusion of Crest’s first quarter 2020 results, and lower sales discounts.

Gross margin decreased by 3.5 percentage points to 20.8 percent for fiscal 2020 from 24.3 percent for fiscal 2019, primarily due to lower overhead absorption driven by lower sales volume for each reportable segment, higher warranty costs as a percentage of net sales, and $1.4 million of COVID-19 Shutdown Costs.

Operating expenses increased $22.1 million, or 27.6 percent, to $101.9 million for fiscal 2020 compared to $79.9 million for the prior year. The increase was primarily driven by additional goodwill and other intangible asset impairment charges related to our NauticStar and Crest segments. In addition, the inclusion of Crest’s results for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 added $2.2 million of operating expenses. These increases were partially offset by a $3.9 million decrease in our MasterCraft segment mainly due to lower acquisition-related costs, reduced selling, general, and administrative expense resulting from cost management initiatives, lower share-based compensation cost as a result of our CEO transition and lowered performance estimates related to our incentive-based compensation plans.

Net loss for fiscal 2020 was $(24.0) million, or $(1.28) per share, compared to Net income of $21.4 million, or $1.14 per share, for fiscal 2019. Adjusted Net Income of $25.1 million, or $1.34 per share, was computed using a tax rate of 23.0 percent. This compares to Adjusted Net Income of $53.0 million, or $2.82 per share, for fiscal 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA was $44.3 million for fiscal 2020, compared to $79.3 million for fiscal 2019. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 12.2 percent, down from 17.0 percent for fiscal 2019 principally due to lower unit sales volumes.

See “Non-GAAP Measures” below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Net Income per share to the most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.

Outlook

Concluded Brightbill, “We remain bullish on the long-term prospects of both the markets we serve and the brands we own, especially with the backdrop of historically low dealer inventory levels combined with unprecedented retail demand trends. Our visibility has improved since last quarter, and while uncertainties in the marketplace remain, we are initiating guidance for both full year and first quarter of fiscal 2021. Importantly, our guidance assumes that we are able to operate all of our facilities throughout the year without any COVID-19 related shutdowns.”

The Company’s outlook is as follows:

  • For full year fiscal 2021, consolidated net sales is expected to grow in the mid-20 percent range year-over-year, with Adjusted EBITDA margins in the 13 to 14 percent range, and Adjusted Earnings per share growth in the low-to-mid 40 percent range year-over-year.

  • For the fiscal first quarter, consolidated net sales is expected to be down in the low-to-mid teens percent range year-over-year, with Adjusted EBITDA margins in the 11 to 12 percent range, and Adjusted Earnings per share down in the mid-to-high 30 percent range.

Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

We define EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA further adjusted to eliminate certain non-cash charges or other items that we do not consider to be indicative of our core and/or ongoing operations. For the periods presented herein, these adjustments include Goodwill and other intangible asset impairment charges, COVID-19 Shutdown Costs, Aviara (new brand) startup costs, transaction expenses associated with acquisitions and certain non-cash items including share-based compensation, and acquisition-related inventory step-up adjustments. We define Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA expressed as a percentage of Net sales.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Per Share

We define Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per share as net income adjusted to eliminate certain non-cash charges or other items that we do not consider to be indicative of our core and/or ongoing operations and adjusted for the impact to income tax expense (benefit) related to non-GAAP adjustments. For the periods presented herein, these adjustments include Goodwill and other intangible asset impairment charges, Aviara (new brand) startup costs, COVID-19 Shutdown Costs, transaction expenses associated with acquisitions, and certain non-cash items including other intangible asset amortization, share-based compensation, and acquisition-related inventory step-up adjustments.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Income (Loss), and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per share, which we refer to collectively as the Non-GAAP Measures, are not measures of net income or operating income as determined under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or U.S. GAAP. The Non-GAAP Measures are not measures of performance in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, net income per share, or operating cash flows determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of cash flow. We believe that the inclusion of the Non-GAAP Measures is appropriate to provide additional information to investors because securities analysts and investors use the Non-GAAP Measures to assess our operating performance across periods on a consistent basis and to evaluate the relative risk of an investment in our securities. We use Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per share to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period that, when viewed in combination with our results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than does U.S. GAAP measures alone. We believe Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per share assists our board of directors, management, investors, and other users of the financial statements in comparing our net income on a consistent basis from period to period because it removes certain non-cash items and other items that we do not consider to be indicative of our core and/or ongoing operations and adjusts for the impact to income tax expense (benefit) related to non-GAAP adjustments. The Non-GAAP Measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our tax expense or any cash requirements to pay income taxes;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest payments on our indebtedness; and

  • Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per share, and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we do not consider to be indicative of our core and/or ongoing operations, but may nonetheless have a material impact on our results of operations.

In addition, because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of the Non-GAAP Measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, including companies in our industry.

We do not provide forward-looking guidance for certain financial measures on a U.S. GAAP basis because we are unable to predict certain items contained in the U.S. GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts. These items may include acquisition-related costs, litigation charges or settlements, impairment charges, and certain other unusual adjustments.

The fiscal 2019 amount reflects a decrease of $0.01 from what was previously reported as a result of a change in how we calculate Adjusted Net Income per diluted share. See “Change in Non-GAAP Financial Measure,” below, for more information.
(e) Represents post-acquisition adjustment to cost of goods sold for the fair value step up of inventory acquired all of which was sold during respective fiscal years.
(f) Reflects income tax expense at a tax rate of 23.0% for fiscal 2020 and 22.5% for fiscal 2019.
(g) Reflects the impact of rounding in the other adjustments presented.

Change in Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Prior to fiscal year 2020, the Company’s calculation of a diluted per share amount of Adjusted Net Income (Loss) included an adjustment to fully dilute this non-GAAP measure for all outstanding share-based compensation grants. This additional dilution was incorporated by adjusting the GAAP measure, Weighted Average Shares Used for the Computation of Basic earnings (loss) per share, as presented on the Consolidated Statements of Operations, to include a dilutive effect for all outstanding RSAs, PSUs, and stock options. Beginning with the fiscal year 2020 presentation for all periods presented, the Company will no longer include this additional dilution impact in its calculation of Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per diluted share. The Company has instead utilized the Weighted Average Shares Used for the Computation of Basic and Diluted earnings (loss) per share as presented on the Consolidated Statements of Operations to calculate Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per diluted share for all periods presented herein.

The Company believes that, because its outstanding share-based compensation grants no longer result in a material amount of dilution of its earnings as was the case nearer to the date of our IPO, the adjustment methodology previously used no longer provides meaningful information to management or other users of its financial statements. This change resulted in an increase of $0.02 in the year ended June 30, 2020 in the amount of Adjusted Net Income per diluted share from what would have been reported using the previous methodology. The change also resulted in an increase of $0.01 in the year ended June 30, 2019 in the amount of Adjusted Net Income per diluted share from what was previously reported.
