MCBC Holdings, Inc. Reports Fiscal 2018 Fourth Quarter and Full-Year Results
 Company Delivers Strong Top- and Bottom-line Gains

VONORE, Tenn., Sept. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MCBC Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCFT), the parent entity of MasterCraft Boat Company, LLC (“MasterCraft”), and NauticStar, LLC (“NauticStar”), today announced financial results for its fiscal 2018 fourth quarter and full year ended June 30, 2018.

Highlights:

  • Net sales for the fourth quarter increased to $95.4 million, up 63.6 percent from $58.3 million in the prior-year period due to improvements in MasterCraft’s core business and the inclusion of NauticStar. Net sales for the fiscal year rose to $332.7 million, up from $228.6 million.
  • Gross profit for the fourth quarter increased to $27.9 million, a 69.5 percent gain from $16.5 million in the prior-year period. Gross profit for the fiscal year rose to $90.4 million, up from $63.5 million.
  • Fourth quarter gross margin grew 100 basis points to 29.2 percent, from 28.2 percent in the prior-year period. MasterCraft’s standalone margin increase, mainly from a favorable product mix, was partially offset by the inclusion of NauticStar. Fiscal year gross margin decreased 60 basis points, primarily due to the impact of NauticStar.
  • Net income totaled $13.1 million for the 2018 fourth quarter, a gain of $6.8 million, or 108.1 percent, from the prior-year period. Fiscal year net income rose $20.1 million to $39.7 million.
  • Fourth quarter diluted earnings per share increased by $0.36, or 105.9 percent to $0.70, up from $0.34 in the prior-year period. Fiscal year diluted earnings per share grew to $2.12, versus $1.05 in fiscal 2017.
  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, increased 71.9 percent to $19.8 million from $11.5 million in the prior-year fourth quarter. Fiscal year Adjusted EBITDA rose to $64.0 million from $43.5 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin, a non-GAAP measure, rose 100 basis points to 20.8 percent, from 19.8 percent in the prior-year fourth quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the fiscal year increased 20 basis points to 19.2 percent, from 19.0 percent.
  • Fourth quarter fully diluted Adjusted Net Income per share, a non-GAAP measure, grew $0.31, an 88.6 percent increase, to $0.66, up from $0.35 in the prior-year period. Fiscal year 2018 fully diluted Adjusted Net Income per share increased $0.79, to $2.09, versus $1.30 in fiscal 2017.
  • During the year, the company’s strong cash flow enabled debt repayments of $39.3 million, which represents almost half of the $80 million borrowed for the purchase of NauticStar.

Terry McNew, MCBC Holdings, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We ended fiscal 2018 delivering record sales and net income for both the fourth quarter and fiscal year. Continued growth in retail demand and our unwavering focus on operational efficiency drove results. Moreover, our strong cash management practices enabled us to significantly reduce our total debt.”

Fourth Quarter Results
Net sales for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2018 rose 63.6 percent, or $37.1 million, to $95.4 million, compared to $58.3 million for the year ago fourth quarter. The inclusion of NauticStar represented $21.7 million, or 37.1 percent, of the increase while MasterCraft grew $15.4 million, or 26.5 percent. The MasterCraft increase stemmed from an increase in sales volume, favorable product mix and price increases.

Fourth quarter gross profit increased $11.4 million, or 69.5 percent, to $27.9 million, compared to $16.5 million for the prior-year period. MasterCraft contributed $7.6 million of the increase primarily due to growth in MasterCraft unit sales volume, a favorable product mix, lower warranty costs and reduced retail rebate activity. The inclusion of NauticStar contributed $3.8 million to the increase in gross profit. Gross margin increased to 29.2 percent for the fiscal fourth quarter, compared to 28.2 percent for the year earlier fourth quarter.

Said McNew, “Retail activity with regard to MasterCraft strengthened throughout fiscal 2018, resulting in improved dealer inventory turns and the largest June retail sales in MasterCraft’s history. This sets the stage for continuing healthy dealer inventory levels and activity in fiscal 2019. At NauticStar we have added nearly 20 dealer locations since the beginning of calendar year 2018 and are excited about driving growth and looking forward to working with our strong dealer network to maximize their opportunities over the coming year.”

Selling and marketing expense increased $0.8 million, or 38.0 percent, to $3.0 million for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2018, compared to $2.2 million for the year earlier period. This increase resulted mainly from the inclusion of NauticStar, which added $0.6 million in selling and marketing expenses.

Fourth quarter general and administrative expense increased by $1.7 million, or 46.9 percent, to $5.4 million, compared to $3.7 million for the prior-year period. This increase resulted mainly from the inclusion of NauticStar, a litigation settlement charge, startup costs for a new brand in a different boat segment and higher compensation costs. General and administrative expense, as a percentage of net sales, decreased by 70 basis points to 5.6 percent, compared to 6.3 percent for the prior-year period. This favorable impact resulted from leverage experienced through significant net sales increases compared to lower increases in general and administrative expenses.

Fourth quarter net income totaled $13.1 million, versus $6.3 million for the year-earlier period driven by the inclusion of NauticStar, lower warranty costs, reduced retail rebate activity and reduced tax rates from the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Adjusted Net Income of $12.4 million, or $0.66 per share, on a fully diluted, weighted average share count of 18.8 million shares, was computed using the company’s estimated annual effective tax rate of approximately 29 percent. This compares to Adjusted Net Income of $6.5 million, or $0.35 per fully diluted share, in the prior-year period. Due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, MasterCraft’s annual effective tax rate for fiscal 2019 is expected to decline to approximately 24 percent.

Adjusted EBITDA was $19.8 million for the fourth quarter, compared to $11.5 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 20.8 percent, up from 19.8 percent in the fiscal 2017 fourth quarter. See “Non-GAAP Measures” below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted Net Income to the most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.

Fiscal 2018 Results
Net sales for the fiscal year increased 45.5 percent, or $104.1 million, to $332.7 million from $228.6 million in the prior year. The inclusion of NauticStar represented $66.4 million, or 29.0 percent, of the increase while MasterCraft grew $37.7 million, or 16.5 percent. The MasterCraft increase stemmed from an increase in sales volume, reduced retail rebate activity, favorable product mix and price increases.

Fiscal year gross profit increased $26.9 million, or 42.4 percent, to $90.4 million, compared to $63.5 million for fiscal 2017. MasterCraft contributed $14.6 million to the gain primarily due to growth in MasterCraft unit sales volume, lower warranty costs and reduced retail rebate activity. The inclusion of NauticStar contributed $12.3 million to the increase in gross profit. Gross margin decreased to 27.2 percent for fiscal 2018, versus 27.8 percent for fiscal 2017. The decrease was primarily due to inclusion of the dilutive effect of NauticStar’s gross margin.

Selling and marketing expense increased $3.6 million, or 38.7 percent, to $13.0 million for fiscal 2018, compared to $9.4 million for the prior year. This increase resulted from the inclusion of NauticStar, which added $1.9 million in selling and marketing expenses, a rise in dealer meeting and training costs, higher compensation expense and an increase in promotional activities.

General and administrative expense decreased by $0.7 million, or 3.4 percent, to $19.8 million for fiscal 2018, compared to $20.5 million for fiscal 2017. This resulted mainly from a decrease of $5.9 million in patent litigation costs, partially offset by the inclusion of NauticStar, which increased general and administrative expenses by $2.2 million, and $1.7 million increase for costs associated with the NauticStar acquisition and $0.6 million related to startup costs for a new brand in a different boat segment. General and administrative expense, as a percentage of net sales, decreased by 310 basis points to 5.9 percent, compared to 9.0 percent for the prior-year period.

Net income totaled $39.7 million for the fiscal year, up from $19.6 million in fiscal 2017, which was driven by the inclusion of NauticStar, reduced retail rebate activity, lower warranty costs and reduced tax rates from the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Adjusted Net Income totaled $39.4 million, or $2.09 per share, for fiscal 2018, on a fully diluted, weighted average share count of 18.8 million shares, and was computed using the company’s estimated normalized annual effective tax rate of approximately 29 percent. This compares with Adjusted Net Income of $24.3 million, or $1.30 per share, in fiscal 2017.

Fiscal year 2018 Adjusted EBITDA was $64.0 million, compared to $43.5 million in fiscal 2017. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 19.2 percent, up from 19.0 percent in the prior year. See “Non-GAAP Measures” below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted Net Income to the most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.

Market Milestones

NauticStar

Said McNew, “We’re nearing our one-year anniversary of welcoming NauticStar to the MasterCraft family. In that time, we’ve leveraged our industry-leading strengths in operational excellence and financial management to further improve NauticStar’s output, quality and margin. Daily production volume is up and we’ve made strides in improving both safety and quality. In fiscal 2019, we look forward to building on the operational and financial improvements begun over the past nine months, while executing additional dealer network expansion and new product development strategies to drive further market share in the high-growth fiberglass outboard category.”

MasterCraft

Since the beginning of our fiscal 2018 year, we have continued to be at the forefront of product introductions and innovation in the performance sport boat category, as exemplified by our recent introduction of the X24 model, and our previously released XT25, XStar, and XT22 models. MasterCraft engineers put surf science into motion with the X24, starting with a new surf-specific hull design that, when equipped with up to 4,300 lbs. of ballast and the Gen 2 Surf System, creates the industry’s largest wake that is perfectly sculpted and customized through MasterCraft technology.

New wake-specific technologies work in concert on the X24 to operationally speed up the boat’s wake-specific functions. A premium 2018 feature, the new FastFill Ballast System, speeds time to towing by filling the X24’s ballast tanks in under three minutes. Once full, the X24 debuts the new Switchback Ballast Tank that instantly shifts ballast from side-to-side to suit the rider’s preference.

The X24 has room for 18 passengers and was thoughtfully designed with new surf-friendly storage features that allow friends and families to have more people, gear and fun on the water. The X24’s Pickle Fork bow and U-shaped seating layout create a spacious and comfortable configuration for spectating and lounging. Optional transom lounge and reserve seating scenarios create more options for owners to customize their interior. Storage on the X24 is considerable at 106 cubic feet, including storage compartments above the ballast tanks.

“With the X23 and iconic XStar setting the bar for wakeboarding, surf and performance, it was tough to outdo ourselves. But we delivered,” said McNew. “With the new X24, we’ve created an exceptional wakesurfing experience while providing the ultimate in on-the-water durability, reliability and performance.”

Outlook
Said McNew, “Financially, operationally and on the new product development front, we delivered strong performance in fiscal 2018, which gives us confidence in our ability to execute again in fiscal 2019. Looking ahead, we remain steadfast in our strategy of driving sustainable, profitable growth through the development of new and innovative products, strengthening our dealer network, driving margin expansion through operational excellence and capturing additional market share from adjacent boating categories, both organically and through acquisitions.”  

For full fiscal year-end June 30, 2019 guidance, MCBC Holdings now expects net sales percentage growth to be up in the low- teens. Adjusted EBITDA margins are expected to be in the mid-18 percent range. Adjusted EPS is expected to grow in the high-teens. The guidance above is adjusted for startup costs of approximately $2.5 million associated with a completely new boat brand in a segment of the market neither MasterCraft nor NauticStar currently serves.

For the first fiscal quarter ending in September net sales percentage growth is expected to be in the high thirty percent range with Adjusted EBITDA margins in the mid-sixteen percent range. Adjusted EPS percentage growth is expected to be in the mid-teens. Recall NauticStar was acquired during our fiscal second quarter last year.

Non-GAAP Measures
We define EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA further adjusted to eliminate certain non-cash charges and other items that we do not consider to be indicative of our ongoing operations, including fees and expenses associated with our follow-on offering, transaction expenses associated with the acquisition of NauticStar, acquisition related inventory step up adjustment, our stock-based compensation, out-of-period adjustment to correct of an immaterial error related to our warranty reserve and new brand startup costs. We define Adjusted Net Income as net income adjusted to eliminate certain non-cash charges and other items that we do not consider to be indicative of our ongoing operations, including fees and expenses associated with our follow-on offering, transaction expenses associated with the acquisition of NauticStar, acquisition related inventory step up adjustment, our stock-based compensation, out-of-period adjustment to correct of an immaterial error related to our warranty reserve, new brand startup costs and an adjustment for income tax expense at a normalized annual effective tax rate.  We define Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA expressed as a percentage of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA margin are not measures of net income or operating income as determined under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, which we refer to as GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are not measures of performance in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or operating cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of cash flow for management’s discretionary use. We believe that the inclusion of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted Net Income is appropriate to provide additional information to investors because securities analysts, noteholders and other investors use these non-GAAP financial measures to assess our operating performance across periods on a consistent basis and to evaluate the relative risk of an investment in our securities. We use Adjusted 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 alone measures.  We believe Adjusted 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 items and items not indicative of our ongoing operations. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our tax expense or any cash requirements to pay income taxes;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest payments on our indebtedness; and
  • Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we do not consider to be indicative of our ongoing operations but may nonetheless have a material impact on our results of operations.

In addition, because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, including companies in our industry.

Furthermore, certain non-GAAP financial measures presented in this release have been provided for comparison purposes only and these non-GAAP financial measures may change in the future based on our calculations and forecasts regarding the interpretation of certain recent changes to U.S. federal income tax law and anticipated impacts on our financial results.
