"We are pleased to report a strong quarter operationally, as we continued to execute on our ongoing strategic initiatives in the second quarter," stated Larry L. Enterline, FOX's Chief Executive Officer. "Sales for our powered vehicle and mountain bike products performed well, enabling us to exceed the high end of our revenue guidance for the quarter. We also continued to make progress on our operational and supply chain efficiency initiatives, resulting in a 220 basis point increase in gross margins and a 120 basis point increase in adjusted EBITDA margin. Our team is diligently working on moving our bike production to Taiwan, and we remain on track to complete the move by the end of next year, which will facilitate further operating efficiencies once completed."

Mr. Enterline continued, "Following the launch of our model year 2015 mountain bike products, we are encouraged by the positive response and enthusiasm for our new lineup and remain confident in this category's ability to contribute to our long-term growth."

Sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 were $86.4 million, an increase of 22.8% from sales of $70.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase reflects 52.6% and 7.4% growth in sales of powered vehicle and mountain bike products, respectively.

Gross margin was 31.2% for the second quarter of fiscal 2014, a 220 basis point increase from gross margin of 29.0% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The improvement in gross margin reflects the Company's successful execution of its operational initiatives targeted at improving factory and supply chain efficiencies, as well as continued execution of its product design for manufacturability program.

Total operating expenses were $15.2 million, or 17.6% of sales, for the second quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to $10.2 million, or 14.5% of sales, in the second quarter of the prior fiscal year. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to the inclusion of Sport Truck's operating expenses in the Company's consolidated results and higher stock-based compensation expense, as well as expenses associated with significant corporate transactions, including the recently completed secondary offering of the Company's common stock and the acquisition and integration of Sport Truck. Operating income was $11.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to operating income of $10.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

In the second quarter of 2014 the Company recorded an income tax benefit of $0.04 million compared to tax expense of $3.4 million for the second quarter of 2013. The $3.4 million decrease resulted primarily from a non-recurring tax benefit of $3.8 million.

Net income in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $11.6 million, an increase of 102.4% compared to $5.7 million in the second quarter of the prior fiscal year. Earnings per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $0.31 compared to $0.17 in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $9.8 million, an increase of 46.5% compared to $6.7 million in the second quarter of the prior fiscal year. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $0.26 compared to $0.19 in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Reconciliations of net income 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.

Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $16.6 million, compared to $12.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

Balance Sheet Highlights

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $1.9 million. Total debt was $45.4 million, compared to $8.0 million as of December 31, 2013. The increase is due to borrowings for the Company's acquisition of Sport Truck. Inventory was $63.1 million as of June 30, 2014, compared to $42.8 million as of December 31, 2013. The increase is primarily due to the inclusion of Sport Truck's inventory along with normal growth in preparation for the peak summer selling season. As of June 30, 2014, accounts receivable and accounts payable were $39.3 million and $30.5 million, respectively, compared to December 31, 2013 balances of $33.8 million and $24.3 million, respectively. The changes in both accounts receivable and accounts payable are primarily driven by the normal seasonality of the Company's business and the acquisition of Sport Truck.

Secondary Offering of Common Stock

On July 16, 2014, the Company announced the closing of a public offering of 5.75 million shares of its common stock held by certain selling stockholders, including Compass Group Diversified Holdings LLC, at a price of $15.50 per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions. The total includes 0.75 million shares sold in connection with the exercise in full of the underwriters' option to purchase additional shares. The Company did not receive any of the proceeds from the offering.

Fiscal 2014 Guidance

For the fiscal year 2014 the Company reaffirms its fiscal year 2014 guidance provided on April 1, 2014, which includes the impact of the Sport Truck acquisition. The Company expects net sales in the range of $300 million to $320 million and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.85 to $0.95 based on 38 to 39 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

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 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 adjusted net income as net income adjusted for amortization of purchased intangibles, costs of our secondary offering, acquisition related expenses, and certain non-recurring items, net of applicable tax. 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 (income) expense, income taxes, amortization of purchased intangibles, depreciation, stock-based compensation, costs related to our secondary offering, and certain other acquisition related or non-recurring items 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 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 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.
