Lazydays Holding Inc. (LAZY) is an iconic brand in the RV industry, recognized as the #2 dealership brand in the country. Since 1976, Lazydays has established a reputation by offering a vast selection of RV brands from the nation’s leading manufacturers, state-of-the-art service facilities, and thousands of accessories and hard-to-find parts. Lazydays features new and pre-owned RVs, service bays and on-site campgrounds. The company also has rental fleets in Florida, Arizona and Colorado.
The company currently has 13 locations and is focused on scaling platform and expanding their footprint nationally within attractive, high priority regions. Last year, Lazydays opened their first dedicated service center, a 30,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility in Houston, TX. And just last month added a new location in Nashville, TN. The company’s growth pipeline continues to be robust. Lazydays completed three acquisitions in 2020 and is evaluating multiple new growth opportunities including acquisitions and buildouts. Management believes the company is well positioned to further consolidate within a fragmented market.
Last week, Lazydays released preliminary first quarter results. The company saw a 32% increase in RV sales over the same period last year. Revenue was $271 million, up 42% or $80 million versus first quarter 2020 and net income was $15 million, up $12.1 million versus first quarter 2020. Adjusted EBITDA increased 192% to $27.8 million versus $9.5 million in the first quarter of 2020. This is an all-time quarterly EBITDA record for Lazydays, surpassing the previous record of $19 million set in the third quarter of 2020.
Management also gave an update for second quarter 2021, stating that demand continues to be strong and pending sales backlogs remain at historically high levels. Customer demand remains strong and inventory levels are well below the prior year. OEM shipments are improving as more and more Americans are becoming vaccinated and returning to work, so as demand grows, inventory is becoming more accessible.
RV life is gaining popularity among ‘baby boomers’ and has become a viable retirement option for many among this demographic, who control more than 70% of the disposable income in the U.S. By 2025 there are expected to be more than 79 million consumers between the ages of 55 – 74. Considering Lazydays proven commitment to its customers and shareholders alike, would you consider an investment in this small-cap darling?
