Smith & Wesson CEO says 'very pleased with our second quarter results'

James Debney, Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation President and CEO, said, "We are very pleased with our second quarter results, which exceeded our financial guidance. In our Firearms Segment, we believe higher revenue was driven by strong consumer demand as reflected in adjusted background checks from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System as well as our own market share gains. In our Outdoor Products & Accessories Segment, we completed the acquisitions of Taylor Brands and Crimson Trace, both of which were accretive to our non-GAAP earnings. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, we completed the acquisition of substantially all of the net assets of Ultimate Survival Technologies, a provider of high-quality survival and camping products. UST delivered compound annual revenue growth of 49% from 2012 through 2015, maintained healthy gross margins, and developed hundreds of high quality products. We believe the UST distribution network will create incremental opportunities for our existing accessory product lines."

Smith & Wesson potential selection by Army not included in guidance, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Cai von Rumohr said it was surprising that Smith & Wesson was not selected by the Army to compete in the testing phase of the Modular Handgun System, or MHS, project, but also noted that MHS was not included in the company's guidance. The analyst, who thinks S&W shares still look cheap, keeps an Outperform rating on the gunmaker's stock, which is down over 4% to $26.40 in pre-market trading.
