Malibu Boats Reports 15% Drop in Sales for First Quarter


Malibu Boats, a leading water sports boat manufacturer, has reported a significant decline in sales for the fiscal first quarter. The company’s Chief Executive, Jack Springer, expressed concern over the deteriorating demand throughout the quarter.

Decline in Profit

For the three months ending on September 30, Malibu Boats recorded a profit of $20.8 million, translating to 98 cents per share. This is a decrease from the $36.1 million profit ($1.69 per share) achieved during the same period last year.

Adjusted Earnings Exceed Expectations

After excluding one-time items such as stock-based compensation and income tax provisions, adjusted earnings reached $1.13 per share. This figure surpassed analyst expectations of 88 cents per share, according to a FactSet survey.

Sales Decrease

Malibu Boats experienced a decline in sales, with revenues dropping to $255.8 million from $302.2 million during the same period of the previous year. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had anticipated sales of $244.1 million.

Challenging Business Environment

According to Jack Springer, the retail environment significantly worsened as the quarter progressed. Customers no longer exhibited the same sense of urgency seen in previous years. This, coupled with unfavorable interest rates and macroeconomic conditions, posed challenges for the company.
