MarineMax Reports Fourth Quarter And Fiscal 2016 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, 2016.

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2016, the Company produced revenue growth of over 25% to $942.1 million compared to $751.4 million in fiscal 2015. Same-store sales increased over 22% for the second consecutive year. Pretax earnings for fiscal 2016 were $34.8 million compared to $20.9 million last year. Included in fiscal 2015 pretax earnings was a $1.6 million gain from the sale of real estate, or $0.06 per diluted share. Absent such gain, the Company's pretax earnings grew more than 80% in fiscal 2016 to $34.8 million from $19.3 million. Net income for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2016, was $22.6 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, compared to $48.3 million, or $1.92 per diluted share in the prior year. Included in fiscal 2016 is a deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversal of $1.1 million net, or $0.04 per diluted share. Similarly, included in fiscal 2015, is a deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversal of $27.4 million net, or $1.09 per diluted share. Both of these valuation allowance reversals are recorded as a benefit in the Company's income tax provision in their respective years.

Excluding the deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversals in both periods and the real estate gain in fiscal 2015, and applying a pro forma tax provision to fiscal 2015, the Company's comparable non-GAAP diluted earnings per share rose more than 85% to $0.87 per diluted share in fiscal 2016 from $0.47 per diluted share last year.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, revenue grew more than 20% to $227.3 million from $189.3 million for the comparable quarter last year. Same-store sales for the quarter increased over 12%, on top of 17% growth for the comparable period last year. Pretax earnings increased approximately 15% for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 to $6.3 million from $5.4 million last year. Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, was $5.6 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to $32.8 million, or $1.32 per diluted share in the comparable period last year. Included in the quarter ended September 30, 2016 is a deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversal of $1.1 million net, or $0.04 per diluted share. Similarly, included in the comparable period last year, is a deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversal of $27.4 million net, or $1.10 per diluted share.

Excluding the deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversals in both periods, and applying a pro forma tax provision to the quarter ended September 30, 2015, the Company's comparable non-GAAP diluted earnings per share rose more than 38% to $0.18 per diluted share in the quarter ended September 30, 2016 from $0.13 per diluted share in the comparable period last year.

William H. McGill, Jr., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Fiscal 2016 was marked by consistent strong sales and sustained positive trends in the marine industry. Overall, our team produced impressive comparable earnings per share growth of more than 85%, driven by our second consecutive year of 22% same-store sales growth plus the positive benefits derived from the strategic Russo Marine acquisition which was completed during the year. While we produced excellent results for the year, our fourth quarter experienced gross margin pressure as we more aggressively positioned our inventory for the winter season and the expected continued rollout of new models from our manufacturing partners. This coupled with the timing of several boat shows, which moved from October to September, shifting costs into the quarter, impacted our final results."

Mr. McGill continued, "Current trends in the industry remain strong, as evidenced by our increasing sales backlog, the enthusiasm we are experiencing in our showrooms, growing crowds at boat shows, and attendance at our Getaways events. Along with the past few years of sustained sales and earnings growth, these trends provide us with confidence that for fiscal 2017, we are well positioned to capture additional market share and earnings growth as the industry recovery continues. With the highest tangible net worth in our history, the right inventory, a committed and proven team, coupled with the ongoing excitement that new models and technology are generating, MarineMax is ready to build upon our past successes as we strive to grow long term value for our shareholders."

2017 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 $1.04 to $1.14 for fiscal 2017. This compares to a non-GAAP adjusted, but fully taxed, diluted earnings per share of $0.87 in fiscal 2016 and $0.47 in fiscal 2015. The adjustments to 2016 are the removal of the deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversal noted above. The adjustments to 2015 are the removal of the deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversal noted above, the gain as noted above and a pro forma income tax provision being provided. These expectations do not take into account, or give effect for, material acquisitions that may be completed by the Company during the fiscal year or other unforeseen events.
