DULUTH, Ga., Aug. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fox Factory Holding Corp. (NASDAQ: FOXF) (“FOX” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended July 2, 2021.

“I am proud to report that we have not only delivered a fourth consecutive quarter of record revenue in a complex manufacturing environment but also surpassed the one billion revenue mark on a TTM basis for the first time in our company’s history. In addition, we made two acquisitions during the second quarter, welcoming SOLA Sport in Australia and Outside Van in Portland, Oregon to the FOX family. These acquisitions fit perfectly with our growth strategy, providing us with geographic and new market expansion respectively,” commented Mike Dennison, FOX’s Chief Executive Officer. “The ongoing growth story at FOX is a testament to the experience, resilience, and dedication of our world-class team, despite the challenging manufacturing and supply chain environment in the world today. Achieving one billion in sales is a major milestone for FOX, and we are very excited about our plans for future growth.”

Sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 were $328.2 million, an increase of 79.2% as compared to sales of $183.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. This increase in sales reflects a 92.4% increase in Powered Vehicles Group sales, and a 63.9% increase in Specialty Sports Group sales. The increase in Powered Vehicles Group sales is primarily due to increased demand in both the original equipment manufacturer ("OEM") and aftermarket channels, including strong performance in our upfitting product lines. Additionally, our results in the same prior year period were impacted by production shutdowns at a majority of our OEM customers. The increase in Specialty Sports Group sales is driven by continued strong demand in the OEM channel along with excellent execution by our team in meeting such demand.

Gross margin was 33.9% for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, a 110 basis point increase from gross margin of 32.8% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Non-GAAP adjusted gross margin increased 100 basis points to 34.1% from the same prior fiscal year period, excluding the effects of strategic transformation and acquisition related costs. The increase in gross margin was primarily driven by favorable product and channel mix led by higher volume sales in our Specialty Sports Group and the strong performance of our upfitting product lines. Additionally, our prior fiscal year period results were negatively impacted by higher factory related costs including incremental costs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 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 $58.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $40.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Operating expenses increased by $17.8 million primarily due to higher employee related costs, higher commission costs, and higher investments to right size our administrative support functions. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses were 17.8% for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to 22.2% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Non-GAAP operating expenses were $51.4 million, or 15.7% of sales, in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $32.7 million, or 17.9% 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 13.3% in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to an effective tax rate of 19.5% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 primarily due to excess tax benefits on stock-based compensation.

Net income attributable to FOX stockholders in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $44.3 million, compared to $12.6 million in the second quarter of the prior fiscal year. Earnings per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 were $1.05, compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.32 for the second quarter of fiscal 2020.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $51.0 million, or $1.20 of adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $19.7 million, or $0.50 of adjusted earnings per diluted share, in the same period of the prior fiscal year. Reconciliations of net income attributable to FOX stockholders 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 2021 was $69.7 million, compared to $33.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was 21.2%, compared to 18.4% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. 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 2021 Results

Sales for the six months ended July 2, 2021 were $609.3 million, an increase of 65.8% compared to the first six months in fiscal 2020. Sales of Powered Vehicle and Specialty Sports products increased 60.7% and 73.2%, respectively, for the first six months of fiscal 2021 compared to the prior year fiscal period.

Gross margin was 34.3% in the first six months of fiscal 2021, a 260 basis point increase, compared to gross margin of 31.7% in the first six months of fiscal 2020. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted gross margin increased 250 basis points, excluding the effects of strategic transformation and acquisition related costs. The increase in gross margin for the first six months of fiscal 2021 was primarily due to higher volume sales in our Specialty Sports Group and the strong performance of our upfitting product lines, as well as favorable product and channel mix. Additionally, our gross margin for the first six months of the prior fiscal year period was negatively impacted by incremental costs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 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 2021 was $82.3 million, compared to $20.9 million in the first six months of the prior fiscal year. Earnings per diluted share for the first six months of fiscal 2021 was $1.94, compared to $0.53 in the same period of fiscal 2020.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income in the first six months of fiscal 2021 was $95.5 million, or $2.25 of adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to $40.2 million, or $1.02 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 $130.1 million in the first six months of fiscal 2021, compared to $65.0 million in the first six months of fiscal 2020. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 21.3% in the first six months of fiscal 2021, compared to 17.7% in the first six months of fiscal 2020. 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 2, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $275.0 million compared to $245.8 million as of January 1, 2021. Inventory was $208.6 million as of July 2, 2021, compared to $127.1 million as of January 1, 2021. As of July 2, 2021, accounts receivable and accounts payable were $149.7 million and $154.1 million, respectively, compared to $121.2 million and $92.4 million, respectively, as of January 1, 2021. The increase in inventory is primarily due to additional raw materials purchases to mitigate risks associated with supply chain uncertainty. The changes in accounts receivable and accounts payable reflect business growth as well as the timing of vendor payments. Property, plant and equipment, net increased to $177.6 million as of July 2, 2021, compared to $163.3 million as of January 1, 2021, reflecting capital expenditures of $27.6 million. Goodwill increased to $299.8 million as of July 2, 2021, compared to $289.3 million as of January 1, 2021, due to our acquisition of Outside Van in second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Fiscal 2021 Guidance

For the third quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company expects sales in the range of $300 million to $320 million and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.95 to $1.15.

For the fiscal year 2021, the Company expects sales in the range of $1,200 million to $1,240 million and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $4.25 to $4.45. We expect our full year effective tax rate to be on the lower end of our previously guided range of 15.0% to 19.0%.

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 2021 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 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 margin as gross profit margin adjusted for certain strategic transformation costs and the amortization of acquired inventory valuation markup. 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 attributable to FOX stockholders 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 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 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.
