SCOTTSDALE, AZ, February 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMMO, Inc. (Nasdaq: POWW, POWWP) (“AMMO” or the “Company”), a leading vertically integrated producer of high-performance ammunition and components and operator of GunBroker.com, the largest online marketplace serving the firearms and shooting sports industries, today announced results for its third quarter of fiscal 2022 ended December 31, 2021.  

Third Quarter Fiscal 2022 versus Third Quarter Fiscal 2021:

  • Net revenues increased 289% to $64.7 million
  • Gross profit margin was 34.8% compared to 20.1%
  • Net income was $9.1 million compared to a net loss of $1.9 million
  • Diluted EPS of $0.07 compared to ($0.04), a 275% increase; Adjusted EPS of $0.14 compared to $0.02, a 600% increase
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $20.1 million versus $2.4 million, a 752% increase
  • 100% of our production for 2022 has been sold

Marketplace Metrics – Third Quarter Fiscal 2022

  • Revenue of $17.6 million
  • New user growth averaged 55,000 per month
  • Number of auctions increased 33.4% year-over-year
  • Average take rate increased to 5.4% versus 4.6% a year ago
  • Loyalty program revenue increased 8.8% year-over-year 

“We delivered another outstanding quarter reflecting strong execution by our team on key growth initiatives around innovation, expanding capacity, and leveraging the incredible power of our Marketplace platform,” said Fred Wagenhals, AMMO’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  “Total revenues were up 289% driven by broad-based gains across our business.  Our profitability also continued to improve dramatically, fueled by our growing mix of Marketplace revenue and operational efficiencies stemming from our enhanced scale.  Industry trends and the underlying demand for our products remain very strong and we are confident in our ability to continue delivering significant growth and improving margins.  We also recently announced a $30 million share repurchase authorization, underscoring our positive outlook and commitment to driving shareholder value.”  

Third Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results

Net revenues of $64.7 million in the third quarter increased 289% compared to the prior year period, reflecting the ongoing strength of demand for both our proprietary and standard ammunition products, as well as continued momentum in our marketplace platform, GunBroker.com.  Ammunition sales totaled $44.1 million compared to $12.8 million in last year’s third quarter, an increase of 243%.  Marketplace revenue was $17.6 million for the quarter with no comparable year-earlier period due to the timing of the acquisition at the end of April 2021. 

Gross profit was $22.5 million in the third quarter versus $3.3 million in the year-earlier period, driven by strong growth in Ammunition along with incremental revenue from our Marketplace segment.  Gross profit margin was 34.8% in the third quarter, compared to 20.1% in last year’s third quarter. As we prepare for our new facility and planned capacity increases coming online in the second quarter of our next fiscal year, we have added additional labor and overhead expenses in this reported quarter in order to make for a swift transition, contributing to a  temporary compression in our ammunition segment margin from our previous quarter, which we expect to benefit from in our next fiscal year. 

Operating expenses were $11.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to $3.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, an increase of $8.1 million. The majority of the increase was related to $5.6 million in additional operating expenses attributable to GunBroker.com, including $3.3 million of non-cash incremental depreciation and amortization.  As a percentage of sales, operating expenses declined by 18.8% year-over-year to 18.4% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, driven by operating leverage, manufacturing scale and the mix shift in favor of higher margin Marketplace revenues. 

Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was $10.6 million, compared to an operating loss of $0.4 million in last year’s third quarter.  

Net income was $9.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to a net loss of $1.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Net income available to common shareholders was $8.3 million or $0.07 per fully diluted share versus a net loss of $1.9 million and ($0.04) per fully diluted share in the third quarter of fiscal 2021.  Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.14 versus an adjusted net income per share of $0.02 in the prior year quarter, a 600% increase.   

Adjusted EBITDA was $20.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $2.4 million a year earlier, a 752% increase.  

Outlook

We are reiterating our fiscal 2022 guidance and continue to expect revenue of at least $250 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $80 million for the year ending March 31, 2022.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We analyze operational and financial data to evaluate our business, allocate our resources, and assess our performance. In addition to total net sales, net loss, and other results under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), the following information includes key operating metrics and non-GAAP financial measures we use to evaluate our business. We believe these measures are useful for period-to-period comparisons of the Company. We have included these non-GAAP financial measures in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q because they are key measures we use to evaluate our operational performance, produce future strategies for our operations, and make strategic decisions, including those relating to operating expenses and the allocation of our resources. Accordingly, we believe these measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and board of directors.
