CLEARWATER, Fla.--()--MarineMax, Inc. (NYSE: HZO), the nation’s largest recreational boat and yacht retailer, today announced results for its second quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Revenue grew 23% to $245.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 from $199.6 million for the comparable quarter last year. Same-store sales increased 13% in addition to the 16% growth in the same period a year ago. The Company’s net income was $2.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 compared to net income of $2.5 million or $0.10 per diluted share for the comparable quarter last year.

Revenue increased 28% to $471.9 million for the six months ended March 31, 2017 compared with $369.1 million for the comparable period last year. Same-store sales grew approximately 20% on top of 12% growth for the comparable period last year. Net income for the six months ended March 31, 2017 was $5.4 million or $0.22 per diluted share, compared with a net income of $3.2 million, or $0.13 per share for the comparable period last year.

William H. McGill, Jr., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer stated, “Given our robust growth in sales, which we expected to be incrementally higher, MarineMax continues to capture share in an expanding market. While the timing of our sales is difficult to predict, as illustrated by the growth in same-stores sales of 13% this quarter and 28% in the previous quarter, we believe that demand remains strong. Beyond the addition of the nine stores from the two acquisitions we completed over the past twelve-months, our expense structure reflects our expectation of sustained annual revenue growth given the trends we have experienced over the past several years. We also believe the addition of new models, combined with current sales trends, should support our ongoing efforts to expand gross margins.”

Mr. McGill continued, “MarineMax remains well positioned to produce industry leading results. This is supported by the strength of the industry, positive boat show results, an expanding backlog as noted through our increase in customer deposits and growing interest from customers. As we enter the busiest season of the year, we are energized by the rising enthusiasm for the boating lifestyle, increased interest in innovative products and our improved inventory mix. Our team is poised to continue to execute our customer-centric approach and build on our past success.”

2017 Guidance

Based on current business conditions, retail trends and other factors, the Company is reaffirming its annual guidance expectations for fully taxed earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $1.14 to $1.24 for fiscal 2017. These expectations do not take into account, or give effect for future material acquisitions that may be completed by the Company during the fiscal year or other unforeseen events.
