MarineMax Reports First Quarter 2013 Results

Same-store Sales Growth Exceeds 8%

CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MarineMax, Inc. (NYS: HZO) , the nation's largest recreational boat retailer, today announced results for its first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Revenue grew approximately 8% to $99.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared with $91.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. Same-store sales grew more than 8% compared to a 2.0% increase in the same period last year. The Company's net loss for the first quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $4.16 million, or $0.18 per share, compared with a net loss of $4.21 million, or $0.19 per share, for the comparable quarter last year.

William H. McGill, Jr., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "The fact that our team produced positive same-store sales growth, while also producing slightly better bottom line results, represents a significant effort by the entire organization. Our team overcame the ongoing economic challenges, exacerbated by the fiscal cliff discussions and the uncertainty surrounding the Presidential election. This was compounded by the devastation resulting from Hurricane Sandy. The storm caused certain of our Northeastern stores to focus on protecting and recovering boats and restoring our facilities rather than on selling boats."

Mr. McGill continued, "Entering what historically has been the busiest selling season for MarineMax, we are well positioned with our inventory at appropriate levels. We remain encouraged by positive industry fundamentals that seem to indicate the industry is in the early stage of a recovery, which is further supported by the solid interest around the country during the early boat show season. Our team is committed to capturing additional market share, and given our more efficient operating structure, we would expect to see improved leverage to our bottom line as we move through the balance of our fiscal year."
