DULUTH, Ga., Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fox Factory Holding Corp. (NASDAQ: FOXF) (“FOX” or the“Company”) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended July 1, 2022.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2022 Highlights

  • Sales increased 23.9% to $406.7 million, compared to $328.2 million in the same period last fiscal year
  • Gross profit increased 28.7% to $142.9 million, compared to $111.1 million in the same period last fiscal year. Gross margin percentage increased 120 basis points to 35.1%, compared to 33.9% in the same period last fiscal year; non-GAAP adjusted gross margin percentage increased 120 basis points to 35.3% compared to 34.1% in the same period last fiscal year
  • Net income was $53.5 million, or 13.2% of sales and $1.26 of earnings per diluted share, compared to $44.3 million, or 13.5% of sales and $1.05 of earnings per diluted share in the same period last fiscal year
  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $58.6 million, or $1.38 of non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to $51.0 million, or $1.20 of non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share in the same period last fiscal year
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $88.1 million, or 21.7% of sales, compared to $69.7 million, or 21.2% of sales in the same period last fiscal year

'We are pleased to report another quarter of record revenue and profitability in an increasingly complex and challenging macro business environment. Not only did we surpass the $400.0 million quarterly revenue mark for the first time, but we also delivered record gross margin, EBITDA, and net income,' commented Mike Dennison, FOX's Chief Executive Officer.“We are still seeing healthy demand across most of our diversified portfolio for the balance of the year. However, the ongoing macroeconomic and geopolitical volatility have caused us to slow both hiring and spending in an effort to stay in front of what will most likely be turbulent months ahead.'

Sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 were $406.7 million, an increase of 23.9% as compared to sales of $328.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. This increase reflects a 28.1% increase in Specialty Sports Group sales and a 20.9% increase in Powered Vehicles Group sales. The increase in Specialty Sports Group sales is driven by continued strong demand in the original equipment manufacturer ('OEM') channel. The increase in Powered Vehicles Group sales is primarily due to strong performance in our upfitting product lines.

Gross margin was 35.1% for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, a 120 basis point increase from gross margin of 33.9% in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Non-GAAP adjusted gross margin increased 120 basis points to 35.3% from the same prior fiscal year period, excluding the effects of strategic transformation costs. The increase in gross margin was primarily driven by favorable product mix and improved factory efficiencies. 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 $72.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to $58.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Operating expenses increased by $14.1 million primarily due to higher employee related costs, higher insurance and facility-related expenses, and higher commission costs. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 remained unchanged at 17.8%, when compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Non-GAAP operating expenses were $66.5 million, or 16.3% of sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to $51.4 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 18.9% in the second quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to 13.3% in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in the Company's effective tax rate was primarily due to the impact of recently finalized U.S. tax regulations which limit the amount of newly generated foreign taxes that are creditable against U.S. income taxes and resulted in an increase in the impact of foreign withholding taxes, net of foreign tax credits; as well as decreased benefits from the effects of stock-based compensation. These increases were partially offset by a lower tax rate on foreign derived intangible income.

Net income in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was $53.5 million, compared to $44.3 million in the second quarter of the prior fiscal year. Earnings per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 were $1.26, compared to earnings per diluted share of $1.05 for the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was $58.6 million, or $1.38 of adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $51.0 million, or $1.20 of adjusted earnings per diluted share, in the same period of the prior fiscal year. Reconciliations of net income as compared to non-GAAP adjusted net income and the calculation of non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share are provided at the end of this press release.

Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was $88.1 million, compared to $69.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was 21.7%, compared to 21.2% in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Reconciliations of net income to adjusted EBITDA and the calculation of adjusted EBITDA margin are provided at the end of this press release.

First Six Months Fiscal 2022 Results

Sales for the six months ended July 1, 2022 were $784.7 million, an increase of 28.8% compared to the first six months in fiscal 2021. Sales of Specialty Sports and Powered Vehicle products increased 35.2% and 24.1%, respectively, for the first six months of fiscal 2022 compared to the prior year fiscal period.

Gross margin was 33.5% in the first six months of fiscal 2022, a 80 basis point decrease, compared to gross margin of 34.3% in the first six months of fiscal 2021. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted gross margin was 33.8% in the first six months of fiscal 2022, a 70 basis point decrease, compared to 34.5% in the first six months of fiscal 2021, excluding the effects of strategic transformation costs. The decrease in gross margin for the first six months of fiscal 2022 was primarily driven by continued increases in supply chain related costs, including increased prices for raw materials and freight. Additionally, the completion of the planned shutdown of our Watsonville, California facility and transition of those production lines resulted in inefficiencies as we ramp up our Gainesville, Georgia facility. 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.

Net income attributable to FOX stockholders in the first six months of fiscal 2022 was $101.5 million, compared to $82.3 million in the first six months of the prior fiscal year. Earnings per diluted share for the first six months of fiscal 2022 was $2.40, compared to $1.94 in the same period of fiscal 2021.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income in the first six months of fiscal 2022 was $114.4 million, or $2.70 of adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to $95.5 million, or $2.25 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.

Adjusted EBITDA increased to $159.9 million in the first six months of fiscal 2022, compared to $130.1 million in the first six months of fiscal 2021. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 20.4% in the first six months of fiscal 2022, compared to 21.3% in the first six months of fiscal 2021. 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.

Balance Sheet Highlights

As of July 1, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $108.6 million compared to $179.7 million as of December 31, 2021. Inventory was $349.1 million as of July 1, 2022, compared to $279.8 million as of December 31, 2021. As of July 1, 2022, accounts receivable and accounts payable were $195.4 million and $161.6 million, respectively, compared to $142.0 million and $100.0 million, respectively, as of December 31, 2021. Prepaids and other current assets were $267.7 million as of July 1, 2022, compared to $123.1 million as of December 31, 2021. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents and increase in prepaids and other assets are primarily due to increased chassis deposits as we work to secure supply for the remainder of the year for our upfitting business. The increase in inventory is due to several factors, including receipt of long lead time items that had been delayed, higher levels of safety stock to mitigate uncertainty, and natural growth to meet anticipated demand. The increases in accounts receivable and accounts payable reflect business growth as well as the timing of vendor payments. Total debt was $410.0 million as of July 1, 2022, compared to $378.5 million as of December 31, 2021, due to increases in working capital.

Fiscal 2022 Guidance

For the third quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company expects sales in the range of $385 million to $405 million and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $1.15 to $1.35.

For the fiscal year 2022, the Company expects sales in the range of $1,535 million to $1,565 million and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $5.00 to $5.30. For purposes of our fiscal 2022 guidance, we expect our full year effective tax rate to be within the range of 11% to 15%.

Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share exclude the following items net of applicable tax: amortization of purchased intangibles, patent litigation-related expenses, acquisition and integration-related expenses, and strategic transformation costs. A quantitative reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share for the third quarter and full fiscal year 2022 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 adjusted gross profit,”“non-GAAP adjusted gross margin,”“non-GAAP operating expense,”“non-GAAP adjusted net income,”“non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share,”“adjusted EBITDA,” and“adjusted EBITDA margin,” all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. FOX defines non-GAAP adjusted gross profit as gross profit margin adjusted for certain strategic transformation costs. Non-GAAP adjusted gross margin is defined as non-GAAP adjusted gross profit divided by total sales. FOX defines non-GAAP operating expense as operating expense adjusted for amortization of purchased intangibles, patent litigation-related expenses, acquisition and integration-related expenses, and strategic transformation costs. FOX defines non-GAAP adjusted net income as net income adjusted for amortization of purchased intangibles, patent litigation-related expenses, acquisition and integration-related expenses, and strategic transformation costs, all 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 expense, income taxes, amortization of purchased intangibles, depreciation, stock-based compensation, patent litigation-related expenses, acquisition and integration-related expenses, and strategic transformation 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 adjusted gross profit, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA (and accordingly, non-GAAP adjusted gross margin, 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 gross profit, non-GAAP adjusted 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.
