MarineMax reports record fiscal 2022 first quarter results

MarineMax, the world’s largest recreational boat and yacht retailer, today announced record results for its first quarter ended December 31, 2021. 

Revenue increased 15% to a record $472.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2021 from $411.5 million in the comparable period last year. The revenue growth was due to contributions from recent strategic acquisitions and strong same-store sales growth of 9%, driven by increased unit sales. The 9% same-store sales growth was on top of over 20% growth in the comparable quarter last year. Given the Company’s significant geographic and product diversification, accretive acquisitions which have generally had a higher gross margin profile and a solid demand environment, net income increased 52% to $35.9 million and earnings per diluted share grew 53% to $1.59. This compares to earnings per diluted share of $1.04 in the comparable period last year. 

W. Brett McGill, Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, “We delivered record revenue, cash flow and earnings growth in the quarter. This was on top of very strong performance a year ago, as we have continued to outperform by effectively executing on our growth strategy. Our 9% same-store sales growth was driven primarily by unit sales growth, which is notable given the continued industry wide supply chain challenges. We delivered world class customer service as we executed on our customer centric strategy, supported by our global market presence, premium brands, deep manufacturing relationships and ongoing investments in technology. The meaningful margin expansion in the quarter was bolstered by increased product margins and growth in our higher margin businesses that drove significant operating leverage in the quarter.”   

Mr. McGill continued, “Our accretive acquisitions are all successfully integrated and continue to contribute to our performance. Our balance sheet, with substantial tangible net worth and liquidity, coupled with our cycle tested management team, provides us a significant competitive advantage which will allow us to take advantage of growth opportunities through all economic cycles.  Additionally, the foundational shift of consumers’ renewed desire for the boating lifestyle continues to build, as both demand and backlog remain very robust. With the peak selling season ahead, we expect to build on the strong start to our fiscal year and we remain confident that our growth strategy will continue to enhance long term shareholder value.”
