Fiscal Second Quarter 2022 Results

Revenue for fiscal second quarter 2022 was $442.1 million, an increase of 34.1% compared to $329.6 million in fiscal second quarter 2021, and was primarily due to our increase in same-store sales and revenue from acquired businesses, with strong contribution from acquired revenues related to service, parts and other sales. During fiscal second quarter 2022 same-store sales increased 8%, following a 57% increase in second quarter 2021, as a result of the continued strong demand environment. New and pre-owned boat revenue increased 21.0% and 35.3%, respectively, driven by a significant increase in the average unit price of new boats and a modest increase in the average unit price of pre-owned boats. Finance & insurance income was up 26.8% compared to the prior year and service, parts and other sales was up 177.6% as a result of the Company’s acquisition activity to expand the higher margin, less cyclical service, parts & other revenues.

Gross profit totaled $142.5 million for fiscal second quarter 2022, up $53.8 million from $88.8 million for fiscal second quarter 2021. Gross profit margin of 32.2% increased 530 basis points compared to the prior year period driven by the shift in the mix and size of boats sold, dynamic pricing and the sharp increase in higher margin service, parts & other sales during the quarter.

Fiscal second quarter 2022 selling, general and administrative expenses totaled $75.5 million, or 17.1% of revenue, compared to $48.3 million, or 14.7% of revenue, in fiscal second quarter 2021. 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.

Net income for fiscal second quarter 2022 totaled $42.4 million, compared to $30.6 million in fiscal second quarter 2021. The significant increase was primarily due to the elevated gross profit and significant increase in service, parts and other income during the period.

Earnings per diluted share for fiscal second quarter 2022 was $2.54 per diluted share, compared to $1.83 per diluted share in 2021. For fiscal second quarter 2022, charges related to transaction costs and contingent consideration adversely impacted diluted earnings per share. This amount, tax effected at 25%, was $0.13 per share.

Fiscal second quarter 2022 Adjusted EBITDA increased 64.7% to $66.1 million, compared to $40.1 million for fiscal second quarter 2021 (see reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures).

As of March 31, 2022, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents balance was $83.0 million, an increase of $6.3 million compared to $76.7 million as of March 31, 2021. Total inventory as of March 31, 2022, increased sequentially to $293.2 million compared to $248.2 million on December 31, 2021. As expected, the Company was able to start building inventory levels ahead of the summer selling season despite continued challenges in the supply chain. Total long-term debt as of March 31, 2022, was $338.7 million, and adjusted long-term net debt (net of $83.0 million cash)1 is 1.2 times trailing twelve-month Adjusted EBITDA.

Subsequent Events

Subsequent to March 31, 2022, the Company completed the acquisition of Denison Yachting, ranked #1 in superyacht sales for three consecutive years (based on data provided by Boat International), expanding the Company’s presence into the superyacht category and ancillary yacht service offerings, in addition to yacht brokerage and new boat sales. The transaction adds 20 locations across 7 states and is expected to immediately add to top-line growth and operating margin and be accretive to diluted earnings per share.

Fiscal Year 2022 Guidance

The Company is raising its fiscal full year 2022 outlook for Adjusted EBITDA1 to be in the range of $230 million to $240 million and earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $8.60 to $9.00, both of which includes the previously completed acquisitions, including the acquisition of Denison Yachting but excludes any other acquisitions that may be completed during the year. For the fiscal year 2022, OneWater maintains its anticipation that same store sales will be up high-single digits, despite an expected challenging inventory environment.

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 and adjusted long-term net debt, as measures 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 fair value of 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 change in fair value of 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.

Adjusted Long-Term Net Debt

We defined adjusted long-term net debt as long-term debt (including current portion) less cash. We consider, and we believe certain investors and analysts consider, adjusted long-term net debt, as well as adjusted long-term net debt divided by trailing twelve-month Adjusted EBITDA, to be an indicator of our financial leverage.

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.
