Lazydays Holdings, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2019 Financial Results
Lazydays Holdings, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2019 Financial Results
Lazydays Holdings, Inc. (“Lazydays” or the “Company”) (NasdaqCM: LAZY) announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.
First Quarter Financial Results and Highlights:
- On March 11, 2019, Lazydays announced that it will open a dealership in Nashville, Tennessee, and has signed a dealership agreement for the Nashville market with Grand Design RV, one of the most respected and fastest growing recreational vehicle (“RV”) brands in the industry. Lazydays anticipates opening its Nashville dealership in early 2020, after it builds out its new dealership. In the meantime, the Company will serve the Nashville market through its Lazydays of Knoxville dealership.
- Lazydays expects to complete construction of a 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art RV service facility adjacent to its Minnesota dealership later this month. Upon completion of this facility, the Company will immediately commence RV service operations at this location in advance of the busy summer RV season.
- Revenues for the first quarter were $173.1 million; down $4.7 million, or 2.7%, versus 2018. Revenue from sales of recreational vehicles was $152.6 million for the quarter, down $5.7 million, or 3.6%. RV unit sales excluding wholesale units, were 1,974 for the quarter, down 80 units, or 3.9% versus 2018. The decline in the sale of recreational vehicles for the quarter was partially offset by a $0.8 million increase in finance and insurance (“F&I”) revenues, as well as other revenues including parts, accessories, and related services.
- Gross profit, which excludes depreciation and amortization, was $36.9 million, down $2.0 million versus 2018. Gross margin declined slightly between the two periods, from 21.9% in 2018 to 21.3% in 2019, primarily driven by a mix shift towards new versus pre-owned unit sales.
- Excluding transaction costs, stock-based compensation, and depreciation and amortization, selling, general and administrative expense (“SG&A”) for the quarter was $26.5 million, down $0.1 million compared to the prior year. Stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization increased $0.9 million and $1.1 million, respectively, compared to the prior year. These non-cash expense increases stemmed from the March 15, 2018 merger between Andina Acquisition Corp. II (“Andina”) and Lazy Days’ R.V. Center, Inc., which included options issued to management and increases in tangible and intangible asset valuations. In addition, transaction costs decreased by approximately $3.0 million compared to the prior year as a result of the fees incurred in 2018 associated with the merger better Andina and Lazydays R.V. Center, Inc.
- Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $9.4 million for the quarter, down $2.1 million, compared to 2018. This was primarily driven by decreased gross profit from the decline in preowned vehicle unit sales. The Company experienced severe weather in a number of its markets during the quarter and believes the weather negatively impacted unit volume in the quarter.
- As of March 31, 2019, cash was $31.1 million, up $4.5 million from December 31, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of cash flows from operating activities net of Floorplan financing payoffs as we reduced our RV inventory by approximately $23.2 million during the quarter.
“Despite the continued difficult industry conditions in the first quarter along with severe weather in our Minnesota, Tennessee and Colorado markets, we are generally pleased with our performance,” stated Mr. William Murnane, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lazydays. “Notwithstanding weaker demand and lower volume, we were able to maintain our margins. Moreover, we reduced our same store RV inventory to slightly below March 2018 levels and believe our inventory is well positioned and properly balanced. We are also very pleased with our strong cash flow in the quarter.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We use certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin to enable us to analyze our performance and financial condition. We utilize these financial measures to manage our business on a day-to-day basis and believe that they are useful measures of performance as they reflect certain operating drivers of the business, such as sales growth, operating costs, selling and administrative expense and other operating income and expense. We believe that these supplemental measures are commonly used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. We believe these non-GAAP measures provide expanded insight of the underlying operating results and trends and overall understanding of our financial performance and prospects for the future. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.
Our use of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may not be comparable to other companies within the industry due to different methods of calculation. We compensate for these limitations by using each of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin as only one of several measures for evaluating our business performance. In addition, capital expenditures, which impact depreciation and amortization, interest expense, and income tax expense, are reviewed separately by management. We may incur expenses in the future that are the same or similar to some of those adjusted in this presentation.
EBITDA is defined as net income excluding depreciation and amortization of property and equipment, interest expense, net, amortization of intangible assets, and income tax expense.
Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding depreciation and amortization of property and equipment, non-floor plan interest expense, amortization of intangible assets, income tax expense, stock-based compensation, transaction costs and other supplemental adjustments which for the periods presented includes LIFO adjustments, severance costs and other one time charges, and loss or gain on sale of property and equipment.
Adjusted EBITDA Margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenues.
Reconciliations from Net Income per the Consolidated Statements of Income to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 are shown in the tables below.
