American Outdoor Brands, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 Financial Results

• Net Sales $57.9 Million - Up 6.4%
• Gross Margin 45.7%
• Traditional Channel Sales $34.5 Million - Up 8.7%
• E-Commerce Channel Sales $23.4 Million - Up 3.3%

COLUMBIA, Mo., Nov. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- American Outdoor Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ Global Select: AOUT), an industry leading provider of products and accessories for rugged outdoor enthusiasts, today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2024 ended October 31, 2023 .

Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 Financial Highlights

  • Quarterly net sales were $57.9 million, an increase of $3.5 million, or 6.4%, compared with net sales of $54.4 million for the comparable quarter last year. Traditional channel net sales increased 8.7%, while e-commerce net sales increased 3.3%. Compared with pre-COVID levels in fiscal 2020, quarterly net sales increased 21.3%.
  • Quarterly gross margin was 45.7%, a decrease of 200 basis points, compared with quarterly gross margin of 47.7% for the comparable quarter last year.
  • Quarterly GAAP net income was $77,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared with GAAP net income of $370,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the comparable quarter last year.
  • Quarterly non-GAAP net income was $3.3 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $4.0 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, for the comparable quarter last year. GAAP to non-GAAP adjustments for net income exclude acquired intangible amortization, stock compensation, technology implementation, and other costs. For a detailed reconciliation, see the schedules that follow in this release.
  • Quarterly non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDAS was $5.2 million, or 9.0% of net sales, compared with $6.4 million, or 11.8% of net sales, for the comparable quarter last year. For a detailed reconciliation, see the schedules that follow in this release.

Brian Murphy, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our second quarter results reflect solid performance in net sales and capital management, as well as ongoing progress against our long-term strategic objectives. Net sales grew by 6.4% compared with the second quarter last year, a result that exceeded our expectations and represented growth of more than 21% over our pre-pandemic second quarter of fiscal 2020. Our shooting sports category saw a slight decline in net sales compared with the prior year, consistent with industry trends in that space. That decline was offset by growth in our outdoor lifestyle category, demonstrating the strength of our brands in this growing part of our business. In fact, our outdoor lifestyle category accounted for nearly 60% of our total net sales in the second quarter. We believe this growth reflects our strategy to intentionally place our brands where consumers expect to find them, whether online or in-store. Accordingly, both our e-commerce and our traditional channels delivered net sales growth in the second quarter.

"Retail expansion is an important part of our growth strategy. During the second quarter, we were proud to join forces with Academy Sports + Outdoors to bring Academy customers a select lineup of our MEAT! Your Maker brand meat processing equipment. Originally launched in 2019 as an entirely new, exclusively direct-to-consumer brand of high-quality meat processing equipment, MEAT! quickly developed a loyal following among consumers who appreciate the brand's premium, professional grade equipment quality, its commitment to user education, its industry-leading lifetime warranty, and its authentic personality. The expansion into Academy marks an important milestone for our MEAT! brand and provides us a great opportunity to introduce this exciting product lineup to new, potential customers through one of the industry's leading retailers."

Andrew Fulmer, Chief Financial Officer, said, "In the second quarter of fiscal 2024, we delivered net sales growth; we maintained a strong balance sheet; and we continued to return cash to stockholders through our share repurchase program, all while continuing to navigate market uncertainty stemming from cautious inventory management by retailers, and reduced consumer demand. We continued to maintain a strong balance sheet, ending the quarter with $8.4 million in cash and no debt, after repurchasing approximately $1.5 million of our common stock."

"We believe our brands remain well positioned to capitalize on positive, long-term consumer outdoor participation trends. As a result, we continue to believe that our net sales for fiscal 2024 could exceed fiscal 2023 net sales by as much as 3.5%. We also believe our solid financial position enables us to continue investing in our business, returning capital to our stockholders, and addressing the exciting growth opportunities we have identified for our company," concluded Fulmer.

Conference Call and Webcast
The Company will host a conference call and webcast today, November 30, 2023, to discuss its second quarter fiscal 2024 financial and operational results.

The conference call and webcast will begin at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time ( 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time ). Those interested in listening to the conference call via telephone may call directly at (833) 630-1956 and ask to join the American Outdoor Brands call. No RSVP is necessary.

Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In this press release, certain non-GAAP financial measures, including "non-GAAP net income and "Adjusted EBITDAS" are presented. A reconciliation of these and other non-GAAP financial measures are contained at the end of this press release. From time to time, the Company considers and uses these non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental measures of operating performance in order to provide the reader with an improved understanding of underlying performance trends. The Company believes it is useful for itself and the reader to review, as applicable, both (1) GAAP measures that include (i) amortization of acquired intangible assets, (ii) stock compensation, (iii) facility consolidation costs, (iv) technology implementation, (v) acquisition costs, (vi) stockholder cooperation agreement costs, (vii) income tax adjustments, (viii) interest expense, (ix) income tax expense, and (x) depreciation and amortization; and (2) the non-GAAP measures that exclude such information. The Company presents these non-GAAP measures because it considers them an important supplemental measure of its performance and believes the disclosure of such measures provides useful information to investors regarding the Company's financial condition and results of operations. The Company's definition of these adjusted financial measures may differ from similarly named measures used by others. The Company believes these measures facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period by eliminating potential differences caused by the existence and timing of certain expense items that would not otherwise be apparent on a GAAP basis. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the Company's GAAP measures. The principal limitations of these measures are that they do not reflect the Company's actual expenses and may thus have the effect of inflating its financial measures on a GAAP basis.
