  • Our business operations could be negatively impacted by an outage or breach of our information technology systems, operational technology systems, or a cybersecurity event.

  • We collect, store, process, share, and use personal information, and rely on third parties that are not directly under our control to do so as well, which subjects us to legal obligations, laws and regulations related to security and privacy, and any actual or perceived failure to meet those obligations could harm our business.

  • The franchise business model of Freedom Boat Club presents risks.
  • The timing and amount of our share repurchases are subject to a number of uncertainties.
  • Our profitability may suffer as a result of competitive pricing and other pressures.
  • Our ability to remain competitive depends on successfully introducing new products and services that meet customer expectations.
  • We manufacture and sell products that create exposure to potential claims and litigation.
  • Compliance with environmental, health, safety, zoning, and other laws and regulations may increase costs and reduce demand for our products.
  • Changes in income tax laws or enforcement could have a material adverse impact on our financial results.
  • Certain activist shareholder actions could cause us to incur expense and hinder execution of our strategy.
  • Some of our operations are conducted by joint ventures that are not operated solely for our benefit.
Management Discussion
  • 2019 vs. 2018
  • Net sales decreased slightly during 2019 when compared with 2018. Refer to the Marine Engine segment and Boat segment discussions for further details on the drivers of net sales changes.
  • Gross margin percentage increased, reflecting benefits from the absence of the Sea Ray Sport Yacht and Yacht operations in 2019, which had a negative gross margin impact in 2018, as well as improvements in the Marine Engine segment including benefits from the Power Products acquisition as well as favorable changes in sales mix. These positive factors exceeded the impact of lower sales, tariffs and unfavorable changes in foreign exchange rates. Additionally, the gross margin percentage reflected favorable comparisons versus the prior year due to unfavorable plant efficiencies associated with production ramp-up for new products and warehouse management integration in the first half of 2018.
