BUFORD, Ga., Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OneWater Marine Inc. (NASDAQ: ONEW) (“OneWater” or the “Company”) today announced results for its fiscal third quarter ended June 30, 2022.

"The business is firing on all cylinders, significantly exceeding our expectations. We delivered record results in the fiscal third quarter, with revenues increasing 41% and Adjusted EBITDA1 rising 45%. Our performance was bolstered by strength across the business, diversity in our model, and a powerful, multi-faceted acquisition engine,” commented Austin Singleton, Chief Executive Officer at OneWater. “Through a broad network of high-caliber stores, our dealers are leveraging OneWater’s scale, inventory and expanded offerings, while mitigating challenges presented by a constrained production environment. At the same time, we are rapidly growing the business and further positioning OneWater as a leader in the industry. Our announced acquisition of Ocean Bio-Chem, Inc. late in the quarter provides yet another example of our M&A prowess to support long-term profitable growth.”

“As we enter the final quarter of our fiscal year, we have maintained our momentum and the consumer demand has been robust,” continued Mr. Singleton. “Since entering the public markets more than two years ago, we have delivered strong earnings results for our shareholders quarter after quarter, and we believe we have strategies in place for long-term value creation. Through our expanded footprint, diversified business model and best-in-class integration playbook, we believe we are well-positioned for outperformance throughout the coming years.”

Fiscal Third Quarter 2022 Results

Record revenue for fiscal third quarter 2022 was $568.9 million, an increase of 40.7% compared to $404.2 million in fiscal third 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 third quarter 2022 same-store sales increased 12% compared to fiscal third quarter 2021, primarily as a result of the continued strong demand environment.

New and pre-owned boat revenue increased 30.8% and 38.1%, respectively, compared to the prior year, driven by a significant increase in the average unit price of new boats and a significant increase in the unit sales of pre-owned boats. Finance & insurance income was up 24.6% and service, parts and other sales was up 152.6%, both compared to the prior year, as a result of the Company’s acquisition activity to expand the higher margin, less cyclical service, parts & other revenues.

Gross profit totaled $183.9 million for fiscal third quarter 2022, up $57.0 million from $127.0 million for fiscal third quarter 2021. Gross profit margin of 32.3% increased 90 basis points compared to the prior year period driven by our strategic acquisitions of companies focused on higher margin, less cyclical service, parts & other revenues and brokerage revenues, as well as the shift in the mix and size of boats sold and local pricing strategies.

Fiscal third quarter 2022 selling, general and administrative expenses totaled $87.9 million, or 15.4% of revenue, compared to $60.5 million, or 15.0% of revenue, in fiscal third quarter 2021. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue was due mainly to higher marketing expenses, as well as higher administrative costs.

Net income for fiscal third quarter 2022 totaled $64.5 million, compared to $51.6 million in fiscal third quarter 2021. The increase was primarily due to the elevated gross profit and significant increase in service, parts and other sales during the period.

Earnings per diluted share for fiscal third quarter 2022 was $3.86 per diluted share, compared to $3.04 per diluted share in 2021. For fiscal third quarter 2022, charges related to transaction costs and contingent consideration adversely impacted diluted earnings per share. This amount, tax effected at 25%, was $0.20 per diluted share.

Fiscal third quarter 2022 Adjusted EBITDA1 increased 45.2% to $95.1 million, compared to $65.5 million for fiscal third quarter 2021.

As of June 30, 2022, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents balance was $95.7 million and total liquidity, including cash and availability under credit facilities, was in excess of $125.0 million. Total inventory as of June 30, 2022, decreased sequentially to $269.4 million compared to $293.2 million on March 31, 2022. As expected, inventories declined as the summer selling season ramped up during the quarter.

Total long-term debt as of June 30, 2022, was $335.8 million, and adjusted long-term net debt (net of $95.7 million cash)1 is 1.0 times trailing twelve-month Adjusted EBITDA1.

Fiscal Year 2022 Guidance

The Company is raising its fiscal full year 2022 outlook for Adjusted EBITDA2 to be in the range of $240 million to $250 million and earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $9.20 to $9.60, both of which include previously completed acquisitions but excludes any other acquisitions that may be completed during the remainder of the year. For the fiscal year 2022, OneWater now anticipates that same store sales will be up low-double 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.

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, 2021 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 under the “Investors” tab, and in other documents OneWater Marine files with the SEC.
