BUFORD, Ga., Nov. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OneWater Marine Inc. (NASDAQ: ONEW) (“OneWater” or the “Company”) today announced results for its fiscal fourth quarter and year ended September 30, 2021.

“The OneWater team delivered record revenue and earnings in fiscal year 2021 despite a challenging supply chain environment that limited production at OEMs. In fact, customer demand has continued at historic levels with no signs of slowing, which we expect will support further growth well into the coming year,” commented Austin Singleton, Chief Executive Officer at OneWater.

“At the same time, we are realizing tremendous growth in our higher-margin areas of the business and our acquisition strategy has maintained an accelerated pace including the notable addition of PartsVu, as well as the pending acquisition of T-H Marine. Based on our attractive M&A pipeline, we expect 2022 to be another robust deal year. We have clearly hit our stride, which is reflected in the dedication and commitment across the team and will continue to position OneWater to outperform the market.”

Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2021 Results

Revenue for the fiscal fourth quarter 2021 was $280.3 million, an increase of 3.4% compared to $271.0 million in fiscal fourth quarter 2020. Industry-wide supply chain challenges slowed sales of new and pre-owned boats in the fiscal fourth quarter 2021, compared to the prior year. Finance & insurance income was up 25.0% compared to the prior year and service, parts and other sales was up 33.3% as a result of the Company’s strategic focus on expanding the high margin, less cyclical service and parts business.

During the fiscal fourth quarter 2021 same-store sales decreased 8%, following a 25% increase in the fourth quarter 2020 and is the result of the industry-wide inventory shortages. Absent the inventory challenges, same-store sales would have been positive.

Gross profit totaled $89.3 million for the fiscal fourth quarter 2021, up $25.2 million from $64.1 million for the fiscal fourth quarter 2020. Gross profit margin of 31.9% increased 830 basis points compared to the prior year driven by the shift in the mix and size of boats sold and the sharp increase in high margin service, parts & other sales during the quarter.

Fiscal fourth quarter 2021 selling, general and administrative expenses totaled $55.4 million, or 19.8% of revenue, compared to $39.8 million, or 14.7% of revenue, in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2020. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue was due mainly to higher variable personnel costs and increased costs given the current personnel and supply chain environment.

Net income for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2021 totaled $22.5 million, compared to $6.0 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2020. The significant increase was primarily due to the heightened level of gross profit for the period, partially offset by changes in SG&A and other expenses. Earnings per diluted share for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2021 was $1.35 per diluted share, compared to $0.30 per diluted share in 2020.

Fiscal fourth quarter 2021 Adjusted EBITDA increased 46% to $33.6 million, compared to $22.9 million for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2020 (see reconciliation of Non-GAAP financial measures).

Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2021 Results

Record revenue for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021, increased 20.1% to $1,228.2 million from $1,023.0 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, driven by an increase in average unit price of new and pre-owned boats and a 52.0% increase in service, parts and other sales compared to the prior year. Same store sales increased 10% compared to the prior year.

Gross profit totaled $357.5 million for the fiscal year 2021, compared to $235.5 million for the fiscal year 2020. Gross profit margin of 29.1% increased 610 basis points compared to the prior year primarily due to the increase in the margin achieved on boat sales and increases in higher margin finance & insurance income and service, parts & other gross profit.

Fiscal year 2021 selling, general and administrative expenses totaled $199.0 million, or 16.2% of revenue, compared to $143.6 million, or 14.0% of revenue in fiscal year 2020. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue was due mainly to higher variable personnel costs driven by the increased level of profitability in the fiscal year and increased costs given the current personnel and supply chain environment.

Net income for fiscal year 2021 totaled $116.4 million compared to $48.5 million in fiscal year 2020, an increase of 140.0%. The increase is primarily due to the increase in sales and gross margins in 2021. Earnings per diluted share for the fiscal year of 2021 was $6.96 per diluted share, compared to $2.77 per diluted share in 2020.

Fiscal 2021 Adjusted EBITDA increased 87.6% to $155.8 million, compared to $83.1 million in fiscal year 2020 (see reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures).

As of September 30, 2021, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents balance was $62.6 million, a decrease of $3.5 million compared to $66.1 million as of September 30, 2020. Total inventory as of September 30, 2021, increased sequentially to $143.9 million compared to $116.9 million on June 30, 2021. As expected, the Company was able to start building inventory levels following a robust summer selling season. Total long-term debt at September 30, 2021 was $114.4 million, less cash and cash equivalents yields net debt of $51.8 million.

Fiscal Year 2022 Guidance

For fiscal full year 2022, OneWater anticipates same store sales to be up high-single digits, despite an expected challenging inventory environment. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $170 million to $175 million and earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $7.20 to $7.50, both of which exclude the previously announced T-H Marine and Norfolk Marine acquisitions and others that may be completed during the year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Performance Indicators

This press release and our related earnings call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of our operating performance. Management believes these measures may be useful in performing meaningful comparisons of past and present operating results, to understand the performance of the Company’s ongoing operations and how management views the business. Reconciliations of reported GAAP measures to adjusted non-GAAP measures are included in the financial schedules contained in this press release. These measures, however, should not be construed as an alternative to any other measure of performance determined in accordance with GAAP. Because our non-GAAP financial measures may be defined differently by other companies, our definition of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing its utility. We have not reconciled non‐GAAP forward-looking measures, including Adjusted EBITDA guidance, to their corresponding GAAP measures due to the high variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections, particularly with respect to acquisition contingent consideration and transaction costs. Acquisition contingent consideration and transaction costs are affected by the acquisition, integration and post-acquisition performance of our acquirees which is difficult to predict and subject to change. Accordingly, reconciliations of forward looking Adjusted EBITDA is not available without unreasonable effort.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense – other, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization and other (income) expense, further adjusted to eliminate the effects of items such as the change in the fair value of warrant liability, gain (loss) on contingent consideration, gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt and transaction costs. See reconciliation above.

Our board of directors, management team and lenders use Adjusted EBITDA to assess our financial performance because it allows them to compare our operating performance on a consistent basis across periods by removing the effects of our capital structure (such as varying levels of interest expense), asset base (such as depreciation and amortization) and other items (such as the fair value adjustment of the warrants, gain or loss on contingent consideration, gain or loss on extinguishment of debt and transaction costs) that impact the comparability of financial results from period to period. We present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it provides useful information regarding the factors and trends affecting our business in addition to measures calculated under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe that the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure will provide useful information to investors and analysts in assessing our financial performance and results of operations across reporting periods by excluding items we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance.

Same-Store Sales

We define same-store sales as sales from our stores excluding new and acquired stores. New and acquired stores become eligible for inclusion in the comparable store base at the end of the store’s thirteenth month of operations under our ownership and revenues are only included for identical months in the same-store base periods. Stores relocated within an existing market remain in the comparable store base for all periods. Additionally, amounts related to closed stores are excluded from each comparative base period. We use same-store sales to assess the organic growth of our revenue on a same-store basis. We believe that our assessment on a same-store basis represents an important indicator of comparative financial results and provides relevant information to assess our performance.

Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and statements made during the above referenced conference call may contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including regarding our strategy, future operations, financial position, prospects, plans and objectives of management, growth rate and its expectations regarding future revenue, operating income or loss or earnings or loss per share.

These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, but are based on management's current expectations, assumptions and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect on us, which are inherently subject to uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Our expectations expressed or implied in these forward-looking statements may not turn out to be correct.

Important factors, some of which are beyond our control, that could cause actual results to differ materially from our historical results or those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements include the following: effects of industry wide supply chain challenges and our ability to maintain adequate inventory, changes in demand for our products and services, the seasonality and volatility of the boat industry, our acquisition and business strategies, the inability to comply with the financial and other covenants and metrics in our credit facilities, cash flow and access to capital, effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and related governmental actions or restrictions on the Company’s business, risks related to the ability to realize the anticipated benefits of any proposed acquisitions, including the risk that proposed acquisitions will not be integrated successfully, the timing of development expenditures, and other risks. More information on these risks and other potential factors that could affect our financial results is included in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including in the “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” sections of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020 and in our subsequently filed Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, each of which is on file with the SEC and available from OneWater Marine’s website at www.onewatermarine.com under the “Investors” tab, and in other documents OneWater Marine files with the SEC.
