“We delivered another strong quarter, as our innovative product portfolio and operational excellence initiatives drove strong growth and expanded profitability, supported by a number of positive indicators. Strength in retail registrations were further amplified by the strong reception of our model year 2020 products by dealers and customers alike. In fact, the recent announcement of our flagship Malibu M240, which delivers unparalleled levels of luxury, convenience, technology and performance, is expected to further this momentum into the boat show season. Cobalt and Pursuit continue to perform well, and our operational enhancement initiatives remain on track. As we enhance the product development cycle for these powerful brands, we believe the best is yet to come,” commented Jack Springer, Chief Executive Officer of Malibu Boats Inc. “In the first quarter, our operational agility was also highlighted as we rapidly improved channel inventory levels, while at the same time successfully navigating potential supply disruptions as a result of the prolonged UAW strike. As we look forward, our strong start to fiscal year 2020 supports our continued optimism for our brands, and ability to drive meaningful value creation for our shareholders.”
