Clearwater, Fla. – MarineMax reported net income of $11.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014, down 16% from $13.63 million a year earlier. A substantial increase in selling, general and administrative expenses drove the net income decrease.
Marinemax fared better in revenue, which grew approximately 22% to $214.4 million for the quarter compared with $175.8 million for the comparable quarter the prior year. Same-store sales increased approximately 22%.
William H. McGill, chairman, president and CEO of MarineMax, said the company will build on its sales success.
“It is our expectation that we should be able to build on this positive momentum into the remainder of fiscal 2014,” said McGill. “Our team and extensive brand offerings, coupled with our strong balance sheet, should position us to capture additional market share as the recovery in the industry continues. We expect that the pent-up demand will continue to build as consumer confidence increases and both new and seasoned boaters enjoy quality time on the water with friends and family.”
