CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MarineMax, Inc. (NYSE: HZO), the nation’s largest recreational boat retailer, today announced results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2012.

Same-store sales increased approximately 18% compared with a 2% decrease for the comparable quarter last year.

The Company’s net income for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 was $1.1 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $11.5 million, or $0.52 per share, for fiscal 2011, thereby improving its year-over-year earnings by more than $12.6 million.

William H. McGill, Jr., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are pleased to achieve annual profitability and are proud of our team’s performance despite the continued challenges faced by our gradually recovering industry. Our commitment to effectively manage expenses, while executing well in the areas of the business that we can control, has driven our success this year. Focusing on streamlining our operations without sacrificing any customer services and benefits has allowed us to overcome some of the impact of the broader economy and outperform our key industry segments. Despite the fine tuning of our store count to fewer stores this quarter and year, we were able to produce absolute revenue growth and greater same-store sales growth while incrementally lowering inventory. As a result, we strengthened our industry leading balance sheet, adding additional capacity and flexibility.”

Mr. McGill continued, “As the industry recovery builds and boating enthusiasts continue to return to the water, we remain committed to providing our customers with the ability to maximize their boating experience. MarineMax’s inventory, retail locations, sales teams, and dedication allows our customers to put an emphasis on quality family time and their desire to escape and connect with their “self” and others on the water. As we enter fiscal 2013, we are focused on managing our business to greater profitability from improving industry trends and anticipate building on the progress we made this past year. We expect additional opportunities for growth will arise, which we will evaluate as we pursue additional value for our stockholders.”
