LOUDON, Tenn., May 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Malibu Boats, Inc. (Nasdaq: MBUU) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended March 31, 2021.

“We delivered a record-setting third quarter and the best quarter in company history from both a revenue and earnings perspective. This would have been true even without the addition of Maverick Boat Group this quarter. Our results continue to showcase the agility of our team and the strength of our flexible business model, as we posted production levels for Malibu and Pursuit that significantly exceeded historical levels and the fourth best production month ever for Maverick in March. While we have expertly navigated COVID-related supply chain constraints, disruptions resulting from the Texas storms and Kansas freeze allowed our operational excellence and versatility to shine through,” commented Jack Springer, Chief Executive Officer of Malibu Boats, Inc. “Maverick is proving to be another home run, and a perfect fit within our Malibu family of brands. We have just begun our proven process of improvement with Maverick and there are many opportunities for growth to come. Further, robust demand for our larger, newer boats has endured, supporting substantial growth and earnings power. We are optimistic that these tailwinds will remain elevated well beyond calendar year 2021.”

“As we continue to navigate through an ever-changing macro-economic landscape, I am incredibly proud of our team, who day in and day out remain laser-focused on superior execution and living the values of our Company to ensure we bring our customers industry-leading new product innovation. We look forward to leveraging these catalysts for growth as we conclude our fiscal year 2021, and continue to deliver value for our shareholders,” concluded Mr. Springer.

Net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $90.9 million, or 49.8%, to $273.2 million as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in net sales was driven primarily by a favorable model mix in our Malibu and Cobalt segments and increased unit volumes in our Malibu and Saltwater Fishing segments due mostly to our acquisition of Maverick Boat Group on December 31, 2020. Unit volume for the three months ended March 31, 2021, increased 658 units, or 36.6%, to 2,454 units as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. Our unit volume increased primarily due to strong demand at our Malibu segment and additional volume in Saltwater Fishing due mostly to our acquisition of Maverick Boat Group but also supported by robust growth at Pursuit. The increase in unit volumes was constrained by the impact of severe weather on our Cobalt operations and our supply chain's operations.

Net sales attributable to our Malibu segment increased $35.5 million, or 34.6%, to $138.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. Unit volumes attributable to our Malibu segment increased 246 units for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in net sales was driven primarily by increased volume, strong demand for our new, larger models and optional features.

Net sales attributable to our Cobalt segment increased $9.2 million, or 20.0%, to $55.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. Unit volumes attributable to Cobalt decreased 17 units for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in net sales was driven by a favorable product mix of our Cobalt models impacting net sales per unit, offset by lower volume. Our unit volumes for our Cobalt segment decreased during the three months ended March 31, 2021 as a result of weather related shutdowns of our operations and suppliers' operations.

Net sales attributable to our Saltwater Fishing segment increased $46.2 million, or 137.2%, to $79.9 million, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. Unit volume increased 429 units for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in net sales was driven primarily by the increased volumes due to the acquisition of Maverick Boat Group on December 31, 2020.

Overall consolidated net sales per unit increased 9.7% to $111,313 per unit for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. Net sales per unit for our Malibu segment increased 10.6% to $99,658 per unit for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020, driven by higher sales of new, more expensive models and optional features. Net sales per unit for our Cobalt segment increased 24.1% to $109,615 per unit for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020, driven by higher sales of larger, more expensive models. Net sales per unit for our Saltwater Fishing segment decreased 42.9% to $141,396 per unit for the three months ended March 31, 2021 driven primarily by mix of models due mostly to the acquisition of Maverick Boat Group on December 31, 2020.

Cost of sales for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $64.7 million, or 47.4%, to $201.1 million as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in cost of sales was driven by higher costs related to higher net sales in all our segments. In the Malibu segment, higher per unit material and labor costs contributed $19.8 million to the increase in cost of sales and were driven by an increased mix of larger product that corresponded with higher net sales per unit. In the Cobalt segment, higher per unit material and labor costs contributed $6.3 million to the increase in cost of sales and were driven by an increased mix of larger product that corresponded with higher net sales per unit. Within our Saltwater Fishing segment, higher volumes, primarily related to the acquisition of Maverick Boat Group, drove $34.0 million of increase in cost of sales which was also modestly impacted by higher per unit costs.

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $26.2 million, or 57.1%, to $72.0 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in gross profit was driven primarily by higher sales revenue with a more favorable product mix partially offset by the increased cost of sales for the reasons noted above. Gross margin for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased 130 basis points from 25.1% to 26.4%.

Selling and marketing expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $0.1 million, or 2.1% to $4.7 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase was driven primarily by incremental selling and marketing expenses from the acquisition of Maverick Boat Group offset by decreased travel and promotional events due mostly to restrictions imposed by COVID-19. As a percentage of sales, selling and marketing expenses decreased 80 basis points compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year. General and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021, increased $8.8 million, or 90.8%, to $18.4 million as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020 driven primarily by acquisition and integration related costs, compensation, higher legal expenses related to intellectual property litigation and incremental general and administrative expenses due to the acquisition of Maverick Boat Group. As a percentage of sales, general and administrative expenses increased 140 basis points to 6.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. Amortization expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $0.6 million, or 39.5% to $2.1 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase is due to amortization of intangibles acquired as part of the acquisition of Maverick Boat Group on December 31, 2020.

Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2021 increased to $46.9 million from $30.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2021 increased 47.2% to $35.1 million from $23.9 million and net income margin decreased to 12.9% from 13.1% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020. Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of fiscal year 2021 increased 56.7% to $57.0 million from $36.4 million, while Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 20.9% from 20.0% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020.

Fiscal 2021 Guidance

For the fiscal full year 2021, Malibu anticipates revenue growth approaching 38% year-over-year and Adjusted EBITDA margins of approximately 20.5%.

The Company has not provided reconciliations of guidance for Adjusted EBITDA margin, in reliance on the unreasonable efforts exception provided under Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K. The Company is unable, without unreasonable efforts, to forecast certain items required to develop meaningful comparable GAAP financial measures. These items include acquisition and integration related expenses, costs related to the Company’s vertical integration initiatives and litigation expenses that are difficult to predict in advance in order to include in a GAAP estimate.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes the following financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the Securities and Exchange Commission: Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Fully Distributed Net Income and Adjusted Fully Distributed Net Income per Share. These measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income as determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) or as an indicator of our liquidity. Our presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should also not be construed as an inference that our results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Our computations of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and non-cash, non-recurring or non-operating expenses, including certain professional fees, acquisition and integration-related expenses, non-cash compensation expense, expenses related to interruption to our engine supply during the labor strike by United Auto Workers (“UAW”) against General Motors and adjustments to our tax receivable agreement liability. We define Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are not measures of net income as determined by GAAP. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin allow investors to evaluate our operating performance and compare our results of operations from period to period on a consistent basis by excluding items that management does not believe are indicative of core operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to assist in highlighting trends in our operating results without regard to our financing methods, capital structure, and non-recurring or non-operating expenses. We exclude the items listed above from net income in arriving at Adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures, the methods by which assets were acquired and other factors.

Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historical costs of depreciable assets.

We define Adjusted Fully Distributed Net Income as net income attributable to Malibu Boats, Inc. (i) excluding income tax expense, (ii) excluding the effect of non-recurring or non-cash items, (iii) assuming the exchange of all LLC units into shares of Class A Common Stock, which results in the elimination of non-controlling interest in Malibu Boats Holdings, LLC (the "LLC"), and (iv) reflecting an adjustment for income tax expense on fully distributed net income before income taxes at our estimated effective income tax rate. Adjusted Fully Distributed Net Income is a non-GAAP financial measure because it represents net income attributable to Malibu Boats, Inc., before non-recurring or non-cash items and the effects of non-controlling interests in the LLC. We use Adjusted Fully Distributed Net Income to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period that, when viewed in combination with our results prepared in accordance with GAAP, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than GAAP measures alone. We believe Adjusted Fully Distributed Net Income assists our board of directors, management and investors in comparing our net income on a consistent basis from period to period because it removes non-cash or non-recurring items, and eliminates the variability of non-controlling interest as a result of member owner exchanges of LLC units into shares of Class A Common Stock. In addition, because Adjusted Fully Distributed Net Income is susceptible to varying calculations, the Adjusted Fully Distributed Net Income measures, as presented in this release, may differ from and may, therefore, not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

A reconciliation of our net income as determined in accordance with GAAP to Adjusted EBITDA and the numerator and denominator for our net income available to Class A Common Stock per share to Adjusted Fully Distributed Net Income per share of Class A Common Stock is provided under "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures".

(1 ) Represents legal and advisory fees related to our litigation with Skier's Choice, Inc.
(2 ) For the three months and nine months ended March 31, 2021, represents legal and advisory fees incurred in connection with our acquisition of Maverick Boat Group on December 31, 2020. Integration related expenses for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2021 include post-acquisition adjustments to cost of goods sold of $0.9 million for the fair value step up of inventory acquired from Maverick Boat Group, which was sold during the third quarter of fiscal 2021.

We purchase engines from General Motors LLC that we then prepare for marine use for our Malibu and Axis boats.

(5 ) For the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020 we recognized other income from an adjustment in our tax receivable agreement liability as a result of a decrease in the estimated tax rate used in computing our future tax obligations and in turn, a decrease in the future tax benefit we expect to pay under our tax receivable agreement with pre-IPO owners.
