Winnebago Industries (NYSE: WGO) reported stronger-than-expected fiscal Q2 results, topping both earnings and revenue estimates driven by robust consumer demand and improved pricing.
Despite the beat, shares of the leading manufacturer of outdoor lifestyle products and motorhomes declined 11.78% to close near its 52-week low at $55.04.
Q2 adjusted earnings of $3.14 per share grew 42.1% year-over-year and significantly beat analysts’ expectations of $2.94 per share. The company reported earnings of $2.21 per share for the prior-year period.
Furthermore, revenues jumped 39% year-over-year to $1.2 billion and exceeded consensus estimates of $1.1 billion. The increase in revenues reflected a 29 % surge in organic growth. Retail market share gains of 1% also aided top-line growth.
However, aided by operating leverage, better pricing despite cost input inflation and supply constraints, gross profit margin was in-line with the prior year at 18.6%.
Looking ahead, Winnebago Industries CEO, Michael Happe, commented, “We are confident that Winnebago Industries has continued headroom for sustained market share gains and profitable growth across our portfolio, leading to enhanced value creation for our end consumers, dealers, employees and shareholders.”
