MarineMax FIscal 2022 Second Quarter Results

May 1, 2022

MarineMax, Inc. (NYSE: HZO), the world’s largest recreational boat and yacht retailer, has announced record results for its second quarter ended March 31, 2022.

~Record March Quarter Revenue Grows 17% to Over $610 Million~
~Same-Store Sales Growth of 7% on Top of 45% a Year Ago~
~Gross Margin Expands to 34%~
~Record Second Quarter Earnings Per Share of $2.37~
~Raises Fiscal Year 2022 Guidance~

Revenue increased 17% to a record $610.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 from $523.1 million in the comparable period last year. The revenue growth was due to contributions from solid same-store sales growth of 7% on top of a 45% increase in the comparable quarter last year and recent strategic acquisitions. The improvement was driven by strong overall demand for boating despite the lean inventories. The Company’s significant geographic and product diversification, in combination with accretive acquisitions, and growth in gross profit, drove more than a 37% increase in net income to $53.5 million and a 40% increase in earnings per diluted share to $2.37. This compares to earnings per diluted share of $1.69 in the comparable period last year.

For the six months ended March 31, 2022, revenue grew 16% to $1.083 billion compared with $934.6 million for the same period last year. Same-store sales increased approximately 8% in the first half of fiscal year 2022 on top of 33% growth during the same period last year. Net income increased 43% to $89.5 million and earnings per diluted share increased 45% to $3.96 for the six months ended March 31, 2022. This compares to net income of $62.5 million, or $2.73 per diluted share, in the same period last year.

W. Brett McGill, Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, “We once again delivered record sales, earnings growth and cash flow in the quarter, driven by strong same-store sales growth up against a very tough comparison of 45% a year ago. Our market share is expanding as we introduce new customers to MarineMax and the boating lifestyle. Our exceptional customer service, affirmed by our record Net Promotor customer satisfaction levels, has resulted in many of our existing customers upgrading to larger and newer boats. I am extremely proud of our team’s execution as we extend our long record of producing meaningful same-store sales growth, even on top of significant compares, while executing on our balanced growth strategy.”

Mr. McGill continued, “As we enter our most active season, our demand and backlog provides us with continued confidence for the balance of fiscal 2022 and beyond. We anticipated two years ago that boating would be one of the beneficiaries of a changed world. This quarter is evidence of the sustainability of that trend and MarineMax’s ability to leverage our scale, global presence, product diversification, technology advancements, strong balance sheet and cycle tested team. Our record March quarter margins reflects the success of our ongoing focus of growing our higher margin and recurring revenue. The combination of robust operating leverage, significant cash flow and strong consumer demand will support sustainable internal and acquisition growth as we continue to enhance long-term shareholder value.”
