MarineMax Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2017 Results

CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MarineMax, Inc. (NYSE:HZO), the nation’s largest recreational boat and yacht retailer, today announced results for its third quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Revenue was $329.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared with $345.6 million for the comparable quarter last year. Same-store sales decreased 10% following a robust 44% growth comparison in the same period a year ago. Due primarily to the strength of product margins and a rise in the Company’s traditionally higher margin businesses, gross margin increased 290 basis points in the quarter ended June 30, 2017 over the prior year. The Company’s net income was $14.2 million, or $0.57 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared to net income of $13.8 million, or $0.56 per diluted share for the comparable quarter last year.

Revenue increased 12% to $801.7 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2017 compared with $714.7 million for the comparable period last year. Same-store sales grew approximately 6% on top of 25% growth for the comparable period last year. Net income for the nine months ended June 30, 2017 was $19.6 million or $0.78 per diluted share, up 13%, compared with net income of $17.0 million, or $0.69 per diluted share for the comparable period last year.

William H. McGill, Jr., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are pleased with our team’s ability to drive unit sales growth and strong gross margin expansion during the important June quarter. Reports of industry softness in larger product categories, combined with delayed sales due to unseasonal Northeast weather, dampened our overall revenue and therefore earnings in the quarter. We believe the revenue impact from these challenges will be made up in the future as the underlying trends in the industry are healthy, as evidenced by our ability to grow units on a comparable basis and meaningfully increase gross margins in the quarter. Our product portfolio, new innovative models and customer centric approach continues to resonate well with consumers.”

Mr. McGill continued, “We remain confident in our ability to deliver industry leading results. Fundamentally, the demand for the boating lifestyle remains strong and our long-term outlook for the industry is intact. With our capital rich balance sheet, healthy inventory levels, premium brands and strong team, we are well positioned to drive earnings and cash flows while taking advantage of opportunities that may arise.”
