Malibu Boats, Inc. (Nasdaq: MBUU) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Fiscal third quarter 2022 highlights compared to fiscal third quarter 2021:

  • Net sales increased 26.0% to a record $344.3 million
  • Unit volume increased 4.4% to a record 2,562 units
  • Gross profit increased 34.8% to a record $97.1 million

  • Adjusted fully distributed net income per share increased 43.4% to a record $2.61 per share on a fully distributed weighted average share count of 21.6 million shares of Class A Common Stock

"Our record-setting pace continues with yet another outstanding quarter with net sales growing 26.0%, net income rising 56.1% and Adjusted EBITDA increasing 39.9% compared to the prior year. Led by our operational excellence, we were able to ship more units than anticipated, in spite of the persistent supply chain challenges across the industry. At the same time, our M&A strategy proved to be a competitive advantage. With the addition of Malibu Electronics, we were able to expand our vertical integration model, providing tremendous support for our brands and manufacturing prowess, allowing us to, once again, outperform versus the competition," commented Jack Springer, Chief Executive Officer of Malibu Boats, Inc.

"Across the board, ASPs remain elevated, led by strong consumer demand for larger, feature-rich boats. This in combination with our operational excellence has resulted in margin expansion for our business over the quarter, positioning us well to offset inflationary pressures as we move to the final months of the fiscal year. As always, we remain focused on executing our proven strategy, and look to continue to drive industry-leading growth, profitability and long-term value for our shareholders," continued Mr. Springer.

Net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2022 increased $71.1 million, or 26.0%, to $344.3 million as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in net sales was driven primarily by year over year price increases, a favorable model mix and increased unit volumes primarily in our Malibu and Cobalt segments. We recognized an increase in net sales across all three segments and increase in volumes at our Malibu and Cobalt segments during the three months ended March 31, 2022. Unit volume for the three months ended March 31, 2022, increased 108 units, or 4.4%, to 2,562 units as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021. Our unit volume increased primarily due to strong demand at our Malibu and Cobalt segments.

Unit volume decreased 14 units for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in net sales was driven primarily by year over year price increases and favorable model mix, partially offset by a decrease in volumes due to production of larger, more complex boats.

Net sales per unit for our Malibu segment increased 23.2% to $122,732 per unit for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021, driven by year over year price increases and a favorable model mix.

Cost of sales for the three months ended March 31, 2022 increased $46.0 million, or 22.9%, to $247.2 million as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in cost of sales was driven by higher costs related to higher net sales in all our segments, increased prices due to supply chain disruptions and inflationary pressures that have impacted prices on parts and components. In the Malibu segment, higher per unit material and labor costs contributed $20.8 million to the increase in cost of sales and were driven by an increased mix of larger products that corresponded with higher net sales per unit.
