SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fox Factory Holding Corp. (NASDAQ: FOXF) (“FOX” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 29, 2018.

  • Sales increased 29.8% to $156.8 million compared to $120.8 million in the same period last fiscal year

  • Gross margin increased 110 basis points to 33.4% compared to 32.3% in the same period last fiscal year

  • Net income to FOX was $18.4 million, or 11.7% of sales and $0.47 of earnings per diluted share, compared to $13.7 million, or 11.5% of sales and $0.35 of earnings per diluted share in the same period last fiscal year

  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $21.9 million, or $0.56 of adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to $15.0 million, or $0.39 of adjusted earnings per diluted share in the same period last fiscal year

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $32.4 million, or 20.7% of sales, compared to $24.0 million, or 19.9% of sales in the same period last fiscal year

“Our differentiated bike and powered vehicle market positions fueled broad-based strength across our product portfolio, resulting in record second quarter sales and profitability, both of which exceeded our expectations,” commented Larry L. Enterline, FOX's Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased with our team’s continued execution as we further expand into new and existing end markets building upon our core bike and powered vehicle category capabilities with compelling product innovation. We believe we remain well positioned for future growth and based on these strong operational and financial results as well as our outlook for the remainder of the year, we are raising our annual guidance.”

Sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 were $156.8 million, an increase of 29.8% as compared to sales of $120.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2017. This increase reflects a 46.8% increase in sales of powered vehicle products and a 15.1% increase in sales of bike products.  The increase in sales across our markets was primarily due to the continued success of the Company’s product line up, particularly in the OEM channel.  Additionally, sales of powered vehicle products includes the Company’s recent acquisition of Tuscany.

Gross margin was 33.4% for the second quarter of fiscal 2018, a 110 basis point increase from gross margin of 32.3% in the second quarter of fiscal 2017.  The improvement in gross margin was primarily due to increased operating leverage on higher volume and improved manufacturing efficiencies.

Total operating expenses were $28.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $20.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2017.  The increase in operating expenses is primarily a result of inclusion of the Company’s Tuscany subsidiary, higher patent litigation-related expenses, investments in research and development to support future growth, and higher amortization expense on acquired intangible assets.

As a percentage of sales, operating expenses were 18.1% for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to 17.2% in the second quarter of fiscal 2017.  Non-GAAP operating expenses were $23.7 million, or 15.1% of sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $19.0 million, or 15.7% of sales, in the second quarter of the prior fiscal year.  Reconciliations of operating expense to non-GAAP operating expense are provided at the end of this press release.

The Company’s effective tax rate was 20.0% in the second quarter of fiscal 2018, compared to 22.7% in the second quarter of fiscal 2017, resulting in $4.7 million and $4.0 million of tax expense in the respective quarters. The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily due to the reduction in the US tax rate.

Net income to FOX in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 was $18.4 million, compared to $13.7 million in the second quarter of the prior fiscal year.  Earnings per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 was $0.47, compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.35 for the second quarter of fiscal 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 was $32.4 million, compared to $24.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2017.  Adjusted EBITDA margin in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 was 20.7%, compared to 19.9% in the second quarter of fiscal 2017.  Reconciliations of net income to adjusted EBITDA and the calculation of adjusted EBITDA margin are provided at the end of this press release.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $21.9 million, or $0.56 of adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $15.0 million, or $0.39 of adjusted earnings per diluted share in the same period of last fiscal year.  Reconciliations of net income attributable to FOX stockholders to non-GAAP adjusted net income and the calculation of non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share are provided at the end of this press release.

First Six Months Fiscal Year 2018 Results

Sales for the six months ended June 29, 2018, were $286.6 million, an increase of 26.2% compared to the same period in 2017.  Sales of powered vehicle and bike products increased 40.2% and 13.0%, respectively, for the first six months of 2018 compared to the prior year period.

Gross margin was 32.8% in the first six months of fiscal 2018, an 80 basis point increase, compared to gross margin of 32.0% in the first six months of fiscal 2017. The year-to-date gross margin improved primarily due to increased operating leverage on higher volume and improved manufacturing efficiencies.

Pre-tax income in the first six months of fiscal 2018 was $38.4 million, compared to $29.0 million in the first six months of fiscal 2017. Adjusted EBITDA increased to $55.5 million in the first six months of fiscal 2018, compared to $43.3 million in the first six months of fiscal 2017. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the first six months of fiscal 2018 was 19.3%, compared to 19.0% in the first six months of fiscal 2017. Reconciliations of pre-tax income to adjusted EBITDA and the calculation of non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin are provided at the end of this press release.

Net income to FOX in the first six months of fiscal 2018 was $39.6 million, compared to $24.3 million in the first six months of the prior year. Earnings per diluted share for the first six months of fiscal 2018 was $1.02, compared to $0.63 in the same period of fiscal 2017. Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $36.0 million, or $0.93 of adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to $28.6 million, or $0.74 of adjusted earnings per diluted share in the same period of the prior fiscal year. Reconciliations of net income attributable to FOX stockholders to non-GAAP adjusted net income and the calculation of non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share are provided at the end of this press release.

Balance Sheet Highlights

As of June 29, 2018, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $22.7 million compared to $35.9 million as of December 29, 2017. Total debt was $65.9 million, compared to $98.6 million as of December 29, 2017, reflecting pay down of debt incurred in connection with the Company’s 2017 acquisition of Tuscany.  Inventory was $95.4 million as of June 29, 2018, compared to $84.8 million as of December 29, 2017.  As of June 29, 2018, accounts receivable and accounts payable were $77.9 million and $58.3 million, respectively, compared to December 29, 2017 balances of $61.1 million and $40.8 million, respectively.  The changes in inventory, accounts receivable, and accounts payable are primarily attributable to business growth and the Company’s normal seasonality.

Fiscal 2018 Guidance

For the third quarter of fiscal 2018, the Company expects sales in the range of $166 million to $176 million and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.59 to $0.67.

For the fiscal year 2018, the Company expects sales in the range of $596 million to $614 million and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $1.96 to $2.12 The Company’s full year 2018 guidance assumes a non-GAAP tax rate of 19% to 21%.

Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share exclude the following items net of applicable tax: amortization of purchased intangibles, contingent consideration valuation adjustment, acquisition-related compensation expense, certain acquisition-related adjustments and expenses, litigation-related expenses, offering expenses, and costs related to tax restructuring initiatives. Additionally, non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share excludes the 2018 tax benefit related to the resolution of audits by taxing authorities. A quantitative reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share for the second quarter and full fiscal year 2018 is not available without unreasonable efforts because management cannot predict, with sufficient certainty, all of the elements necessary to provide such a reconciliation.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial measures in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), FOX is including in this press release “non-GAAP operating expense”, “non-GAAP adjusted net income”, “non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share”, “adjusted EBITDA”, and “adjusted EBITDA margin”, which are non-GAAP financial measures.  FOX defines non-GAAP operating expense as operating expense adjusted for amortization of purchased intangibles, contingent consideration valuation adjustments, acquisition-related compensation expense, costs of its secondary and shelf offerings, acquisition-related operating expenses, litigation-related costs, and costs related to tax restructuring initiatives.  FOX defines non-GAAP adjusted net income as net income attributable to FOX Stockholders adjusted for amortization of purchased intangibles, contingent consideration valuation adjustments, acquisition-related compensation expense, costs of its secondary and shelf offerings, acquisition-related expenses, litigation-related costs, and costs related to tax restructuring initiatives, all net of applicable tax, as well as tax impacts arising from the settlement of audit and the recognition of related tax positions and tax reform legislation impacts.  These adjustments are more fully described in the tables included at the end of this press release.  Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share is defined as non-GAAP adjusted net income divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares of common stock outstanding during the period. FOX defines adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted for interest expense, net other expense, income taxes, amortization of purchased intangibles, depreciation, stock-based compensation, offering expense, contingent consideration valuation adjustments, acquisition-related compensation expense, litigation-related costs, and certain other acquisition-related costs that are more fully described in the tables included at the end of this press release.  Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA divided by sales.

FOX includes these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes they allow investors to understand and evaluate the Company’s core operating performance and trends.  In particular, the exclusion of certain items in calculating non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA (and accordingly, non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA margin) can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s core business.  These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, including the fact that such non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies because other companies may calculate non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin differently than FOX does.  For more information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures, see the tables included at the end of this press release.
