VONORE, Tenn., Feb. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCFT) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2022 second quarter ended January 2, 2022.

Highlights:

  • Delivered the most profitable second quarter in the Company’s history; the fifth consecutive record-setting quarter.

  • Net sales for the second quarter increased to $159.5 million, up 34.4%.

  • Net income was $15.4 million, up 23.2%.

  • Diluted Net Income per share was $0.81, up 22.7%.

  • Diluted Adjusted Net Income per share, a non-GAAP measure, was $0.91, up 21.3%.

  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, increased to $25.0 million, up 17.4%.

  • Share repurchases of $9.9 million during the quarter.

Fred Brightbill, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, commented, “Once again, our business performed extremely well during the second quarter in a very challenging and dynamic environment. These results reflect a continuation of exceptional execution against our strategic and operational priorities as we delivered a record-setting performance for the fifth consecutive quarter. Net sales, diluted adjusted net income per share, and adjusted EBITDA were all the highest for any second quarter in the Company’s history.”

Brightbill continued, “During the quarter we increased production and, once again, took market share based on preliminary rolling twelve-month data through December. In addition to fully funding our growth initiatives, we have now spent more than 20% of the $50 million authorized under the share repurchase program, as we believe our stock represents an incredible value at recent prices.”

Second Quarter Results

For the second quarter of 2022, MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc. reported consolidated net sales of $159.5 million, up $40.8 million from the second quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to increased volumes and favorable model mix. Higher prices and higher option sales also contributed to higher net sales.

Gross margin declined 260 basis points to 22.1 percent in second quarter 2022 from 24.7 percent in second quarter 2021. Higher revenues yielded a lower margin due to supply chain disruptions and inflationary pressures that drove material and labor costs higher. In response to worsening inflationary pressures, mid-cycle price increases phased in during the second quarter of fiscal 2022. The impact of these price increases will not be fully realized until the second half of the fiscal year. In addition, we incurred incremental overhead costs associated with the Merritt Island, Florida facility acquired in second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Operating expenses were $14.6 million for the second quarter, up $2.3 million from the prior-year period. Despite our increased costs, selling, general, and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales have decreased compared to the prior-year period. Selling and marketing expense increased due to timing of prior-year expenses being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in lower costs for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. General and administrative expense increased as a result of increased variable compensation costs and continued investments in information technology.

Net income was $15.4 million for the second quarter, compared to $12.5 million in the prior-year period. Diluted net income per share was $0.81, compared to $0.66 for the second quarter 2021. Adjusted Net Income increased to $17.2 million for the second quarter, or $0.91 per diluted share, compared to $14.3 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, in the prior-year period.

Adjusted EBITDA was $25.0 million for the second quarter, compared to $21.3 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 15.7 percent for the second quarter, down from 17.9 percent for the prior-year period, due to supply chain disruption and inflationary pressures that drove material and labor costs higher.

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 are once again raising our guidance on the strength of our operating performance, continuing strong retail demand, and unprecedented wholesale visibility. While we believe our team can continue to expertly navigate the challenging environment, we are expecting the supply chain to remain constrained in the second half, which will have an impact on the cadence of our financial results for the remainder of this fiscal year.”

The Company’s outlook is as follows:

  • For full year fiscal 2022, consolidated net sales growth is now expected to be up in the 25 percent range. We continue to expect our Adjusted EBITDA margins to be in the 18 percent range, and Adjusted Earnings per share growth up in the 32 percent range year-over-year. This guidance represents a further increase to our already expected record year of all-organic growth. Driven by growth-oriented projects, we continue to expect capital expenditures to be in the $25 million range for the full year.

  • For the third quarter of fiscal 2022, consolidated net sales growth is expected to be up in the 12 percent range. Net sales for the quarter are being constrained by an acute supplier disruption that will defer revenue into our fiscal fourth quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margins will be in the 17 percent range, and Adjusted Earnings per share growth up in the 4 percent range year-over-year.

(a) Beginning with the first quarter of fiscal 2022, our chief operating decision maker began to manage our business, allocate resources, and evaluate performance based on the changes that have been made in the Company’s management structure in connection with the transition of Aviara production to our Merritt Island facility. As a result, the Company has realigned its reportable segments to MasterCraft, Crest, NauticStar, and Aviara.

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 Aviara transition costs and certain non-cash items including goodwill impairment and share-based compensation. We define Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA expressed as a percentage of Net sales.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per share

We define Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income 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 reflecting an adjustment for income tax expense on net income before income taxes at our estimated annual effective tax rate. For the periods presented herein, these adjustments include Aviara transition costs and certain non-cash items including goodwill impairment, other intangible asset amortization, and share-based compensation.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Net Income 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 and Adjusted Net Income 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 and Adjusted Net Income 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 reflecting an adjustment for income tax expense on net income before income taxes at our estimated annual effective tax rate. 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, Adjusted Net Income 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.
