Rhea-AI Summary
Malibu Boats, Inc. (Nasdaq: MBUU) announced its financial results for the second quarter ended December 31, 2023, showing a decrease in net sales, unit volume, gross profit, net income, and adjusted EBITDA compared to the same period in the previous year. The company's CEO, Jack Springer, attributed the decline to weak retail demand and elevated inventory levels, but expressed optimism for a retail recovery and positive signs following the Year End Sales event.
Positive
  • None.
Negative
  • Net sales decreased 37.7% to $211.1 million
  • Unit volume decreased 43.7% to 1,373 units
  • Gross profit decreased 50.5% to $37.5 million
  • Net income decreased 72.1% to $10.1 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased 60.2% to $22.9 million
  • Net income available to Class A Common Stock per share (diluted) decreased 71.5% to $0.49 per share
  • Adjusted fully distributed net income per share decreased 68.9% to $0.57 per share on a fully distributed weighted-average share count of 21.1 million shares of Class A Common Stock

The substantial decrease in net sales, net income and adjusted EBITDA reported by Malibu Boats, Inc. indicates a significant downturn in the company's financial performance. This downturn is primarily attributed to a marked decline in unit volume, which fell by 43.7%. Such a decrease suggests a contraction in consumer demand, which may be a result of macroeconomic factors such as increased interest rates leading to higher financing costs for luxury items like boats.

Investors should consider the potential long-term implications of these results. The company's efforts to recalibrate wholesale production in line with retail demand demonstrate a proactive approach to inventory management. However, the effectiveness of this strategy will largely depend on the pace of retail recovery. The upcoming boat show season, as mentioned by the CEO, could provide further insights into consumer sentiment and the potential for sales improvement.

In the short term, stakeholders may experience continued volatility in the company's stock price as the market reacts to these financial results. The reference to positive signs following the company's Year End Sales event may provide some optimism, but investors would need to see a consistent uptrend in consumer demand to regain confidence in the stock's performance.

Malibu Boats' performance reflects broader trends in the luxury goods market, particularly within the recreational boating industry. A significant drop in unit sales suggests that consumers are prioritizing essential spending over discretionary purchases like boats, which are often seen as luxury items. This shift can be attributed to the current economic climate, with rising interest rates affecting consumer borrowing power.

Furthermore, the statement regarding elevated inventory levels is a critical issue that could indicate overproduction in prior periods or a sudden drop in demand. Elevated inventories can lead to increased carrying costs and potential asset devaluation if products remain unsold. The industry will closely monitor Malibu Boats' inventory levels in subsequent quarters to assess the effectiveness of their production recalibration.

The company's reference to the resilience of its brands, despite the downturn, is an important factor for long-term brand equity. However, the upcoming boat show season will be a pivotal moment for the company to gauge consumer interest and potentially drive sales, which could help in reducing inventory levels and improving financial health.

The financial results of Malibu Boats serve as a microcosm for examining the impact of macroeconomic conditions on consumer discretionary spending. The CEO's remarks on interest rate pressures highlight the sensitivity of the luxury goods sector to monetary policy changes. As interest rates rise, financing costs for high-ticket items like boats increase, which can dampen demand.

It is also noteworthy that the company is experiencing these challenges during what is traditionally its slowest season. This seasonal aspect, combined with the broader economic headwinds, could suggest a more pronounced effect on the company's performance than in typical years. The ability of Malibu Boats to navigate through this period will depend on its operational agility and the underlying strength of its market position.

In the long-term, the company's strategic response to these challenges, including the recalibration of production, will be essential in determining its competitive stance within the industry. The economic outlook and consumer confidence levels will be key determinants of the company's recovery trajectory and its ability to return to growth.

LOUDON, Tenn., Jan. 30, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Malibu Boats, Inc. (Nasdaq: MBUU) today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended December 31, 2023.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 Highlights Compared to Second Quarter Fiscal 2023:

  • Net sales decreased 37.7% to $211.1 million
  • Unit volume decreased 43.7% to 1,373 units
  • Gross profit decreased 50.5% to $37.5 million
  • Net income decreased 72.1% to $10.1 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased 60.2% to $22.9 million
  • Net income available to Class A Common Stock per share (diluted) decreased 71.5% to $0.49 per share
  • Adjusted fully distributed net income per share decreased 68.9% to $0.57 per share on a fully distributed weighted-average share count of 21.1 million shares of Class A Common Stock

“Our second quarter results, historically our slowest time of the year, were impacted by weak retail demand,” commented Jack Springer, Chief Executive Officer of Malibu Boats, Inc. “We are recalibrating wholesale production to match retail demand as seasonality, along with continued interest rate pressures has resulted in elevated inventory levels. While the current macroeconomic outlook creates uncertainty, we are starting to see some positive signs following our Year End Sales event for Malibu, demonstrating the resiliency of our brands. The upcoming boat show season will serve as an additional indicator of retail recovery, as we believe it will reflect the continuing consumer interest for our larger, feature-rich boats.”

“Looking ahead, while we are optimistic about our ability to return to growth as the market recovers, we will remain lean and nimble. Our operational capabilities, highly variable cost structure and strong team enables Malibu to execute in any choppy environment. These strengths, which we have demonstrated year after year, allow us to continue to be aggressive and continue to invest in the business. As always, we will lead the way as the premier recreational power boat manufacturer as we strive to take advantage of strategic opportunities during down cycles, continue growing our market share, and position ourselves to drive long-term value for our shareholders.” continued Mr. Springer.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin 10.9%  17.0%  13.3%  17.9%


Net sales for the three months ended December 31, 2023 decreased $127.7 million, or 37.7%, to $211.1 million as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022. The decrease in net sales was driven primarily by decreased unit volumes across all segments resulting primarily from decreased retail demand and increased dealer flooring program costs across all segments resulting from higher interest rates and increased inventory levels, partially offset by a favorable model mix in our Malibu and Saltwater Fishing segments and inflation-driven year-over-year price increases. Unit volume for the three months ended December 31, 2023, decreased 1,066 units, or 43.7%, to 1,373 units as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022. Our unit volume decreased primarily due to lower wholesale shipments across all segments driven by lower retail activity during the period.

Net sales attributable to our Malibu segment decreased $81.8 million, or 51.7%, to $76.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2023, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022. Unit volumes attributable to our Malibu segment decreased 712 units for the three months ended December 31, 2023, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022, primarily due to lower wholesale shipments driven by lower retail activity during the period and elevated dealer channel inventory levels. The decrease in net sales was driven by a decrease in units and increased dealer flooring program costs, partially offset by a favorable model mix and inflation-driven year-over-year price increases.

Net sales attributable to our Saltwater Fishing segment decreased $22.9 million, or 21.6%, to $82.7 million, for the three months ended December 31, 2023, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022. Unit volume decreased 188 units for the three months ended December 31, 2023 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022. The decrease in net sales was driven by a decrease in units and increased dealer flooring program costs, partially offset by a favorable model mix and inflation-driven year-over-year price increases.

Net sales attributable to our Cobalt segment decreased $23.0 million, or 30.7%, to $52.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2023, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022. Unit volumes attributable to Cobalt decreased 166 units for the three months ended December 31, 2023 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022. The decrease in net sales was driven primarily by a decrease in units and increased dealer flooring program costs, partially offset by inflation-driven year-over-year price increases.

Overall consolidated net sales per unit increased 10.7% to $153,732 per unit for the three months ended December 31, 2023, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022. Net sales per unit for our Malibu segment increased 5.0% to $126,056 per unit for the three months ended December 31, 2023, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022, driven by a favorable model mix and inflation-driven year-over-year price increases, partially offset by increased dealer flooring program costs. Net sales per unit for our Saltwater Fishing segment increased 14.7% to $204,279 per unit for the three months ended December 31, 2023 driven by a favorable model mix and inflation-driven year-over-year price increases, partially offset by increased dealer flooring program costs. Net sales per unit for our Cobalt segment increased 1.1% to $143,511 per unit for the three months ended December 31, 2023, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022, driven by inflation-driven year-over-year price increases, partially offset by increased dealer flooring program costs and unfavorable model mix.

Cost of sales for the three months ended December 31, 2023 decreased $89.5 million, or 34.0%, to $173.6 million as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022. The decrease in cost of sales was primarily driven by a 37.7% decrease in net sales due to lower unit volumes, partially offset by higher per unit material and labor costs of $4.2 million and $7.0 million for the Malibu and Saltwater Fishing segments, respectively. The increase in per unit material and labor costs was primarily driven by increased prices due to inflationary pressures and a model mix that corresponds to higher cost per unit in our Malibu and Saltwater Fishing segments.

Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2023 decreased $38.2 million, or 50.5%, to $37.5 million compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022. The decrease in gross profit was driven primarily by lower net sales partially offset by decreased cost of sales for the reasons noted above. Gross margin for the three months ended December 31, 2023 decreased 450 basis points from 22.3% to 17.8% driven by fixed cost deleverage due to lower sales, increased mix of the Saltwater Fishing segment and increased dealer flooring program costs.

Selling and marketing expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2023 decreased $0.6 million, or 9.5% to $5.6 million compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022. The decrease was driven primarily by a decrease in marketing events. As a percentage of sales, selling and marketing expenses increased 90 basis points to 2.7% for the three months ended December 31, 2023 compared to 1.8% for the three months ended December 31, 2022. General and administrative expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2023 decreased $3.6 million, or 19.0%, to $15.4 million as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2022 driven primarily by a decrease in personnel-related expenses, partially offset by increased information technology costs and professional fees. As a percentage of sales, general and administrative expenses increased 170 basis points to 7.3% for the three months ended December 31, 2023 compared to 5.6% for the three months ended December 31, 2022. Amortization expense remained flat at $1.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2023.

Operating income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2024 decreased to $14.7 million from $48.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2023. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2024 decreased 72.1% to $10.1 million from $36.4 million and net income margin decreased to 4.8% from 10.7% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2023.

Fiscal 2024 Guidance

For the full fiscal year 2024, Malibu anticipates net sales decline ranging from the mid-to-high thirties percentage, year-over-year, and Adjusted EBITDA margin down 800 to 900 basis points, year-over-year.

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 costs related to the Company’s vertical integration initiatives 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 and non-cash compensation expense. 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 our 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".
