Fiscal Second Quarter 2023 Results

Revenue for fiscal second quarter 2023 was $524.3 million, an increase of 18.6% compared to $442.1 million in fiscal second quarter 2022. The growth was primarily attributable to strong new boat sales and service, parts and other sales from acquired businesses. During fiscal second quarter 2023, same-store sales increased 11%, driven by increases in both units sold and average price per unit.

New boat revenue increased 22.5%, driven by an increase in unit sales and average unit price. Finance & insurance income increased 2.5% compared to the prior year quarter. Pre-owned boat revenue was flat, driven by an increase in unit sales, offset by a decrease in consignment revenue. Service, parts and other sales were up 27.8% compared to the prior year quarter, supported by the Company’s strategic focus on expanding its high margin, less cyclical revenue streams.

Gross profit totaled $146.7 million for fiscal second quarter 2023, up $4.2 million from $142.5 million for fiscal second quarter 2022. Gross profit margin of 28.0% decreased 420 basis points compared to the prior year period, driven by the normalization of new and pre-owned boat pricing, partially offset by meaningful contributions from higher margin service, parts & other revenue.

Fiscal second quarter 2023 selling, general and administrative expenses totaled $90.2 million, or 17.2% of revenue, compared to $75.5 million, or 17.1% of revenue, in fiscal second quarter 2022. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue were flat compared to the prior year period, due primarily to increased marketing costs associated with increased boat show participation and higher costs associated with our service, parts & other business, offset by our ability to leverage our expense structure with the increase in same-store sales.

Net income for fiscal second quarter 2023 totaled $27.0 million, compared to $42.4 million in fiscal second quarter 2022. Earnings per diluted share for fiscal second quarter 2023 was $1.56 per diluted share, compared to $2.54 per diluted share in 2022. For fiscal second quarter 2023, interest expense increased $9.9 million compared to the prior year driven by an increase in the average outstanding borrowings and higher interest rates.

Fiscal second quarter 2023 Adjusted EBITDA1 decreased 21.7% to $51.8 million compared to $66.1 million for fiscal second quarter 2022.

As of March 31, 2023, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents balance was $61.0 million and total liquidity, including cash and availability under credit facilities, was in excess of $100.0 million. Total inventory as of March 31, 2023 increased to $593.3 million compared to $293.2 million on March 31, 2022, primarily driven by acquisitions completed during the year and the return of the traditional seasonal cycles where we build inventory over the winter months, peaking in the month of February as the summer selling season begins.

Total long-term debt as of March 31, 2023, was $463.2 million, and adjusted long-term net debt (net of $61.0 million cash)1 was 1.8 times trailing twelve-month Adjusted EBITDA1.

Fiscal Year 2023 Guidance

The Company is maintaining its previously issued fiscal full year 2023 outlook. For fiscal full year 2023, OneWater anticipates same store sales to be flat to up mid-single digits. Adjusted EBITDA2 is expected to be in the range of $200 million to $225 million and earnings per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $7.50 to $8.00.

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 define 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.

Dealership Same-Store Sales

We define Dealership 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 Dealership 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.
