MarineMax Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2018 Results

MarineMax, Inc. (NYSE: HZO), the nation's largest recreational boat and yacht retailer, today announced results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2018.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2018, revenue increased over 23% to $309 million from $251 million for the comparable quarter last year. Same-store sales for the quarter grew 22%, on top of 5% growth for the comparable period last year. Included in the quarter ended September 30, 2018, was $1.4 million of adjustments before taxes, or $0.05 per diluted share, related to contingent consideration obligation estimates associated with acquisitions made by the Company in prior years, which reduced expenses. Included in the quarter ended September 30, 2017, was $2.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, of unusual expenses associated with Hurricane Irma. Additionally, included in the quarter ended September 30, 2017, were unusual tax related items that reduced the Company's tax provision by $401,000 net, or $0.02 per diluted share.

Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, was $11.5 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share in the comparable period last year. Excluding the impact from the gain in 2018 and the unusual items in 2017, adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 increased 105% to $0.45, compared with adjusted diluted earnings per share for the same period last year.

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018, the Company's revenue grew 12% to approximately $1.2 billion compared to $1.1 billion in fiscal 2017. Same-store sales for the year improved 10% on top of 5% growth for the prior fiscal year. Included in fiscal 2018 results is the $1.4 million before taxes, or $0.05 per diluted share for the contingent consideration adjustment noted above as well as non-recurring unusual costs of $1.2 million before taxes, or $0.04 per diluted share, as noted in our quarter ended June 30, 2018 earnings press release. Included in fiscal 2017, are the unusual Hurricane Irma expenses of $2.9 million before taxes and tax items noted above, or $0.05 per diluted share, net.

Net income for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018, was $39.3 million, or $1.71 per diluted share, compared to net income of $23.5 million, or $0.95 per diluted share in the prior year. Excluding the unusual items in both periods, adjusted net income rose 58% to $39.1 million and diluted earnings per share rose 70% to $1.70, as compared to $24.8 million or $1.00 per diluted share in the prior year.

W. Brett McGill, Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, "The MarineMax team delivered a very strong fourth quarter, with same-store sales growth of 22%, capping an already strong fiscal 2018. The effectiveness of our customer centric approach, combined with the great benefits of the boating lifestyle, and our team's passion, drove our strong performance. Considering that the mix of sales in the quarter was skewed toward larger yachts, we delivered consolidated gross margins that were above our expectations."

Mr. McGill continued, "Our strong 2018 results reduced our inventory levels as we planned and added meaningful strength to our already formidable balance sheet. We are well positioned to take advantage of opportunities as they arise. Looking ahead, we will work to build on the achievements of this past fiscal year. Our focus will remain on growing our higher margin businesses, as we take advantage of new innovative products we are receiving to drive sales, margin and earnings growth while we build additional shareholder value."

2019 Guidance

Based on current business conditions, retail trends and other factors, the Company currently expects fully taxed earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $1.85 to $1.95 for fiscal 2019. This compares to a non-GAAP adjusted, but fully taxed, diluted earnings per share of $1.70 in fiscal 2018. The adjustments to fiscal 2018 include the adjustments for the gain associated with contingent consideration as well as the non-recurring unusual costs. These expectations do not take into account, or give effect for, material acquisitions that may be completed by the Company during fiscal 2019 or other unforeseen events.
