MarineMax expands financing capacity to provide borrowings of up to $300 million

MarineMax, Inc. (NYSE:HZO), the nation’s largest recreational boat and yacht retailer, announced today that it has expanded its financing facility to, among other things, provide for borrowings of up to $300 million from the previous limit of $260 million.

The expanded facility has a three-year term, expiring in October 2019 and it has two, one-year options to renew, subject to lender approval. Borrowings under the facility are secured primarily by the company’s inventory that is financed through the facility and related accounts receivable. The company’s real estate is not pledged. The agent of the facility is Wells Fargo Commercial Distribution Finance (formerly GE Capital, Commercial Distribution Finance) and includes M&T Bank and Bank of the West. The facility contemplates that other lenders may be added by the Company to finance other inventory not financed under this facility, if needed.

“As we continue to produce solid year-over-year growth, it is prudent to increase our borrowing capacity in anticipation of future industry improvement and anticipated strong demand for new models from our manufacturing partners,” said Michael H. McLamb, Executive vice president, chief financial officer and secretary of MarineMax, Inc. “Our lenders understand the industry and improvements to our financing facility are reflective of our strong results, allowing for more financial flexibility. This enhanced financial flexibility should allow us to capitalize on acquisitions and other growth opportunities as they emerge.”
