Camping World reports Q3 EPS 38c, consensus 61c
Reports Q3 revenue $1.31B, consensus $1.42B. Reports adjusted EBITDA decreased 17.0% to $100.1M. The company said, "We have spent the last 15 years building a unique business that combines a comprehensive portfolio of RV products and services with iconic industry brands, a large customer database, leading size and scale, a core of high-margin recurring revenue products and services, a variable cost structure, and a capital efficient model. In a highly fragmented industry that is primarily comprised of smaller independent operators, we believe we have a strategic operating advantage. No RV dealer in the industry has more combined resources, experience and scale than Camping World, and our model was designed with the goal navigating through the various ups and downs of the industry and delivering long-term profitable growth. At a time of excess channel inventory, rising input costs, rising interest rates, volatility in the stock market and uncertainty around the broader economy, we aggressively managed our RV inventory levels, controlled SG&A expenses, stayed disciplined on our pricing, and focused on margins and cash flow. This allowed us to generate more than $100 million of adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter and put us in an opportunistic buying position over the next several months."
