Preliminary Financial Results for the Quarter-to-Date ended August 31, 2020
OneWater also announced today preliminary financial results for the fourth quarter-to-date ended August 31, 2020, which is included in the preliminary prospectus in the registration statement filed by the Company in connection with the proposed offering.
Based upon preliminary financial information for the quarter-to-date ended August 31, 2020, OneWater estimates that revenue increased in excess of 20% and consolidated same-store sales increased in excess of 17% compared to the same period in the prior year. In addition, the Company has also achieved a solid improvement in gross margins in the fiscal fourth quarter-to-date period ended August 31, 2020, over the prior year comparable period.
Consistent with the trends described in ‘‘Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Results of Operations’’ in the preliminary prospectus, OneWater believes these preliminary financial results to be primarily driven by an increase in new and pre-owned boat sales. While OneWater continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its operations, its financial results for the quarter-to-date ended August 31, 2020, suggest that spending in all regions and across product lines has proven resilient as families have increasingly focused on outdoor socially distanced recreation, driving a material increase in sales. Please see ‘‘Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations’’ in the preliminary prospectus for additional information regarding the factors and trends affecting OneWater’s business.
OneWater’s results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 are not yet available. Its expected results above reflect its current estimates for such period based on information available as of the date of the preliminary prospectus. OneWater believes that the estimated comparable revenue, same-store sales and gross margins is important to an investor’s understanding of its performance, notwithstanding that it is not yet able to provide estimated operating income or net income data. OneWater’s independent registered public accounting firm, Grant Thornton LLP, has not audited or reviewed, and does not express an opinion with respect to, this data. OneWater’s actual results may differ from these estimates due to the completion of its financial closing procedures and final adjustments and other developments that may arise between now and the time its final financial statements are completed after the proposed offering is consummated.
