Third Quarter Fiscal 2017 Highlights

  • Sales increased 16.9% to $127.4 million compared to $109.0 million in the same period last fiscal year
  • Gross margin increased 140 basis points to 33.4% compared to 32.0% in the same period last fiscal year; Non-GAAP adjusted gross margin increased 130 basis points to 33.4% compared to 32.1% in the same period last fiscal year
  • Net income was $16.1 million, or 12.6% of sales, compared to $13.7 million, or 12.6% of sales in the same period last fiscal year; Net income was $0.41 per diluted share, compared to $0.36 per diluted share in the same period last fiscal year

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $27.0 million, or 21.2% of sales, compared to $20.9 million, or 19.2% of sales in the same period last fiscal year

“We are pleased to report another quarter of record sales and earnings results which exceeded our expectations. Our third quarter results reflect continued broad success across both our powered vehicle and bike businesses,” stated Larry L. Enterline, FOX’s Chief Executive Officer. “Looking ahead, our team remains committed to further building the FOX brand presence in our existing product categories and consistently pursuing new market opportunities.”

Sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 were $127.4 million, an increase of 16.9% as compared to sales of $109.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. This increase reflects a 27.3% increase in sales of powered vehicle products and an 8.8% increase in sales of bike products. The increase in sales of powered vehicle products was primarily due to continued high demand for on and off-road suspension products including increased original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”) sales. The increase in sales of bike products primarily reflects new product introductions, favorable spec positions, and strong sell through with certain higher growth OEMs.

Gross margin was 33.4% for the third quarter of fiscal 2017, a 140 basis point improvement from gross margin of 32.0% in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. The improvement in gross margin was primarily due to favorable product and customer mix and improved manufacturing efficiencies. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted gross margin increased 130 basis points, excluding the effects of acquisition related costs in the third quarter of last year. A reconciliation of gross profit to non-GAAP adjusted gross profit and the resulting non-GAAP adjusted gross margin is provided at the end of this press release.

Total operating expenses were $22.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 compared to $19.8 million in the third quarter of the prior fiscal year. The increase in operating expenses is primarily a result of strategic investments to support future business growth, increased incentive and stock-based compensation expense, and higher ongoing patent litigation-related expenses, partially offset by the conclusion of the Company’s acquisition-related compensation arrangements. Non-GAAP operating expenses were $19.8 million, or 15.5% of sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 compared to $17.1 million, or 15.7% of sales in the third 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 effective tax rate was 19.5% in the third quarter of 2017, compared to 9.0% in the third quarter of 2016. The increase in the effective tax rate was primarily due to an increase in pre-tax income and resulting tax expense while benefits from various credits and deductions remain relatively constant, and an increase in non-creditable foreign withholding tax.

Net income in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was $16.1 million, compared to $13.7 million in the third quarter of the prior fiscal year. Earnings per diluted share for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 were $0.41, compared to $0.36 in the third quarter of fiscal 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was $27.0 million, compared to $20.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was 21.2%, compared to 19.2% in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. 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 $18.0 million, or $0.46 adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to $16.6 million, or $0.44 adjusted earnings per diluted share in the same period last fiscal year. 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.

First Nine Months Fiscal Year 2017 Results

Sales for the nine months ended September 29, 2017, were $354.5 million, an increase of 21.6% compared to the same period in 2016. Sales of powered vehicle and bike products increased 39.9% and 8.5%, respectively, for the first nine months of 2017 compared to the prior year period.

Gross margin was 32.5% in the first nine months of fiscal 2017, an 80 basis point increase, compared to gross margin of 31.7% in the first nine months of fiscal 2016. The year-to-date gross margin improved primarily due to product and customer mix and manufacturing efficiencies.

Net income in the first nine months of fiscal 2017 was $40.3 million, compared to $25.9 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2016. Earnings per diluted share for the first nine months of fiscal 2017 was $1.04, compared to $0.69 in the same period of fiscal 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA increased to $70.2 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2017, compared to $51.0 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2016. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the first nine months of fiscal 2017 was 19.8%, compared to 17.5% in the first nine months of fiscal 2016. Reconciliations of net income to adjusted EBITDA and the calculation of non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin are provided at the end of this press release.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $46.6 million, or $1.20 adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to $34.4 million, or $0.91 adjusted earnings per diluted share in the same period of the prior fiscal year. 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.

Balance Sheet Highlights

As of September 29, 2017, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $36.8 million compared to $35.3 million at December 30, 2016. Total debt was $64.0 million, compared to $66.7 million as of December 30, 2016. Inventory was $92.0 million as of September 29, 2017, compared to $71.2 million as of December 30, 2016. As of September 29, 2017, accounts receivable and accounts payable were $69.3 million and $47.3 million, respectively, compared to December 30, 2016 balances of $61.6 million and $36.2 million, respectively. The changes in accounts receivable, inventory and accounts payable are primarily attributable to business growth and the Company’s normal seasonality. Accrued expenses decreased to $27.3 million as of September 29, 2017, from $34.4 million as of December 30, 2016, primarily due to the final earn-out payment related to one of the Company’s 2014 acquisitions, partially offset by the result of the Company’s normal business seasonality.

Fiscal 2017 Guidance

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company expects sales in the range of $114.0 million to $119.0 million and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.30 to $0.34.

For the full fiscal year 2017, the Company raises its previous guidance and now expects sales in the range of $468.5 million to $473.5 million and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $1.50 to $1.54.

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 including related foreign currency transaction gains and losses, certain acquisition-related adjustments and expenses, litigation-related expenses and offering expenses. Additionally, non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share excludes the tax benefit related to the resolution of audits by taxing authorities. A quantitative reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2017 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 gross margin”, “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 gross margin as gross profit margin adjusted for certain acquisition related costs. 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 offerings, acquisition related operating expenses, and litigation-related costs. FOX defines non-GAAP adjusted net income as net income adjusted for amortization of purchased intangibles, contingent consideration valuation adjustments, acquisition-related compensation expense including related foreign currency transaction gains and losses, costs of its secondary and offerings, acquisition related expenses, and litigation-related costs, all net of applicable tax as well as tax benefits related to the resolution of audits by taxing authorities. 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 including related foreign currency transaction gains and losses, litigation-related costs, and certain other acquisition related 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 gross margin, 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 gross margin, 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.
