FAIRHAVEN, MA – March 1, 2022 – Acushnet Holdings Corp. (NYSE: GOLF) ("Acushnet"), the global leader in the design, development, manufacture and distribution of performance-driven golf products, today reported financial results for the full year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2021.
“We delivered tremendous results in 2021, including 33% net sales growth, higher adjusted EBITDA and $314 million in operating cash flow, all while navigating unprecedented supply chain challenges. These results supported a wide range of strategic investments in the business and expansion of our capital return to shareholders,” said David Maher, Acushnet’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
Mr. Maher continued, “Golf industry fundamentals are strong, our trade partners are healthy and channel inventories are generally lean. Looking forward, we are enthused by strong golfer participation and remain committed to continuous improvement and innovation in all areas of our business, with exciting new product launches planned in every category. Our new AVX, Velocity and TruFeel golf balls all feature new technology to help golfers of all levels play their best. New Vokey Design SM9 wedges provide golfers with the “ultimate in optionality” when choosing a wedge and Vokey wedges have been the most played wedge on the PGA Tour every year since 2004. The all-new FootJoy Fuel is the latest in athletic golf footwear innovation. New Titleist gear and KJUS apparel offerings will also feature key performance and design enhancements.
“Our results and product innovation underscore the Acushnet team’s passion for the game of golf and providing leading products for dedicated golfers. I am proud of our team and all they accomplished throughout the year under ever changing circumstances. While demand for Acushnet’s products remains strong, we expect that supply chain constraints will continue for the foreseeable future. I am confident that our dedicated team of Acushnet associates will continue to effectively navigate these challenges as we set out to provide leading service levels to our trade partners and golfers and deliver positive returns for our shareholders.”

Adjusted EBITDA$328.3 $233.2 $95.1 40.8 %
Consolidated net sales for the full year increased 33.2%, or 30.6% on a constant currency basis, with sales volume increases across all reportable segments, as rounds of play and consumer demand for golf-related products remained elevated during 2021, coupled with the adverse impact of government-ordered shutdowns in the second quarter of 2020. Sales volume growth of products that are not allocated to one of our four reportable segments also contributed to the increase in net sales.
On a geographic basis, consolidated net sales in the United States increased 34.0% for the year. The increase in net sales in the United States was driven by an increase of $104.8 million in Titleist golf balls, an increase of $76.4 million in Titleist golf clubs, an increase of $76.0 million in FootJoy golf wear and an increase of $21.3 million in Titleist golf gear, all driven by the same factors discussed above.
Net sales in regions outside of the United States were up 32.4%, or 26.9% on a constant currency basis. The increase in net sales in all regions was primarily driven by increased sales across all reportable segments, also driven by the same factors discussed above.
Segment specifics:
The increase in net sales across all of our reportable segments was largely due to sales volume increases in each segment coupled with the adverse impact of government-ordered shutdowns in the second quarter of 2020. Additional segment commentary below.
31.5% increase in net sales (29.2% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf balls, largely due to higher sales volumes of our latest generation Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls launched in the first quarter of 2021.
31.8% increase in net sales (29.6% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf clubs. This increase was largely due to higher average selling prices across all product categories and higher sales volumes in all product categories except wedges. The decrease in sales volumes of wedges was primarily due to supply chain constraints.
28.9% increase in net sales (25.8% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf gear. This increase was largely due to sales volume increases across all product categories.
39.8% increase in net sales (36.6% increase on a constant currency basis) in FootJoy golf wear. This increase was largely due to increased sales volumes and higher average selling prices across all product categories.
2



Net income attributable to Acushnet improved by $82.9 million to $178.9 million, up 86.4% year over year, primarily as a result of an increase in income from operations, offset in part by an increase in income tax expense.
Adjusted EBITDA was $328.3 million, up 40.8% year over year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 15.3% versus 14.5% for the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA$(5.0)$48.1 $(53.1)(110.4)%
Consolidated net sales for the quarter were unchanged on a percentage basis, increasing 1.4% on a constant currency basis, driven by an increase of $19.8 million in FootJoy golf wear primarily due to sales volume increases in apparel and footwear and an increase of $6.2 million in Titleist golf balls driven by our latest generation Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $23.6 million in Titleist golf clubs and a decrease of $0.9 million in Titleist golf gear. Supply chain constraints impacted sales volumes across all reportable segments. Sales volume growth of products that are not allocated to one of our four reportable segments also contributed to the increase in net sales.
On a geographic basis, consolidated net sales in the United States increased 3.1% in the quarter. The increase in net sales in the United States was due to an increase of $10.7 million in FootJoy golf wear and an increase of $5.4 million in Titleist golf balls, partially offset by a decrease of $11.1 million in Titleist golf clubs. Sales volume growth of products that are not allocated to one of our four reportable segments also contributed to the increase in net sales.
Net sales in regions outside the United States decreased 3.1%, down 0.4% on a constant currency basis, driven primarily by a decrease in net sales in Japan, partially offset by increases in net sales in Korea and EMEA. In Japan, the decrease in net sales was primarily due to decreased sales in Titleist golf clubs, partially offset by an increase in sales of FootJoy golf wear and Titleist golf balls. In Korea, the increase in net sales was primarily driven by increased sales in FootJoy golf wear, partially offset by a decrease in Titleist golf clubs. In EMEA, the increase in net sales was primarily due to increased sales in Titleist golf clubs.
Segment specifics:
4.4% increase in net sales (5.2% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf balls, largely due to higher average selling prices and higher sales volumes of our latest generation Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls launched in the first quarter of 2021, partially offset by sales volume declines in our performance golf ball models as a result of manufacturing and supply chain disruptions.
18.8% decrease in net sales (17.9% decrease on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf clubs as sales volumes of our new T-Series irons launched in the fourth quarter of 2021 were offset by lower sales volumes of our TSi drivers and TSi fairways launched in the fourth quarter of 2020.

4.5% decrease in net sales (3.1% decrease on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf gear primarily driven by lower sales volumes in golf bags due to supply chain constraints.
17.9% increase in net sales (19.7% increase on a constant currency basis) in FootJoy golf wear primarily driven by sales volume increases in apparel and footwear, partially offset by lower sales volumes in our glove category due to supply chain constraints.
Net income attributable to Acushnet decreased $48.0 million to a net loss of $26.4 million, primarily as a result of a decrease in income from operations due to lower gross profit and higher operating expenses. Gross profit was lower due to increased inbound freight costs, the negative impact of raw material and component shortages on production costs and lower golf club sales. Operating expenses were up across all reportable segments primarily due to higher advertising and promotional and selling expenses.
Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $5.0 million, down 110.4% year over year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was (1.2)% for the fourth quarter versus 11.4% for the prior year period.
Cash Dividend and Share Repurchase
Acushnet's Board of Directors today declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.18 per share of common stock. The dividend will be payable on March 25, 2022, to shareholders of record as of March 11, 2022. The number of shares outstanding as of February 25, 2022 was 72,379,964.
During the quarter, the Company repurchased 662,446 shares of common stock on the open market at an average price of $53.36 for an aggregate of $35.4 million. On November 8, 2021, the Company entered into a new agreement with Magnus Holdings Co., Ltd. (“Magnus”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Fila Holdings Corp., to purchase from Magnus an equal amount of its common stock as it purchases on the open market, up to an aggregate of $37.5 million, at the same weighted average per share price. On January 24, 2022, the Company repurchased 699,819 shares of common stock for an aggregate of $37.5 million from Magnus, in completion of the Company's share repurchase obligation.
2022 Outlook
The Company expects full-year consolidated net sales to be approximately $2,175 to $2,225 million and Adjusted EBITDA to be approximately $325 to $345 million. On a constant currency basis, consolidated net sales are expected to be in the range of up 2.7% to up 5.0%. The Company's outlook assumes no significant worsening of the COVID-19 pandemic, additional supply chain disruptions or changes in the impact of foreign currency. The Company plans to share additional details of the 2022 Outlook during its investor conference call.

ACUSHNET HOLDINGS CORP.
Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures
(Unaudited)

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). However, this release includes the non-GAAP financial measures of net sales in constant currency, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin. These non-GAAP financial measures are not measures of financial performance in accordance with GAAP and may exclude items that are significant to understanding and assessing the Company’s financial results. Therefore, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net sales, net income or other measures of profitability or performance under GAAP. You should be aware that the Company’s presentation of these measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies.
We use net sales on a constant currency basis to evaluate the sales performance of our business in period over period comparisons and for forecasting our business going forward. Constant currency information allows us to estimate what our sales performance would have been without changes in foreign currency exchange rates. This information is calculated by taking the current period local currency sales and translating them into U.S. dollars based upon the foreign currency exchange rates for the applicable comparable prior period. This constant currency information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any measure derived in accordance with GAAP. Our presentation of constant currency information may not be consistent with the manner in which similar measures are derived or used by other companies.
Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) attributable to Acushnet Holdings Corp. adjusted for interest expense, net, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization; and other items defined in the agreement, including: share-based compensation expense; restructuring and transformation costs; certain transaction fees; extraordinary, unusual or non-recurring losses or charges; indemnification expense; certain pension settlement costs; certain other non-cash (gains) losses, net and the net income relating to noncontrolling interests. We define Adjusted EBITDA in a manner consistent with the term “Consolidated EBITDA” as it is defined in our credit agreement.
We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure because it excludes the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies, assess our consolidated operating performance and make decisions regarding pricing of our products, go to market execution and costs to incur across our business.
We believe Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors regarding our consolidated operating performance. By presenting Adjusted EBITDA, we provide a basis for comparison of our business operations between different periods by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance.
Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP. It should not be considered an alternative to net income attributable to Acushnet Holdings Corp. as a measure of our operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items, or affected by similar non-recurring items. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider such measure either in isolation or as a substitute for analyzing our results as reported under
12



GAAP. Our definition and calculation of Adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies due to different methods of calculation.
We also use Adjusted EBITDA margin on a consolidated basis, which measures our Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales, because our management uses it to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies, assess our consolidated operating performance and make decisions regarding pricing of our products, go to market execution and costs to incur across our business. We present Adjusted EBITDA margin as a supplemental measure of our operating performance because it excludes the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA margin is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP. It should not be considered an alternative to any measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP.

___________________________________
(1)    The three months and year ended December 31, 2020 include a goodwill impairment loss of $3.8 million related to KJUS.
(2) Relates to severance and other costs associated with management's program to refine our business model and improve operational efficiencies.
(3)    Includes non-cash indemnification expense related to tax audits for the periods in which we were owned by Beam Suntory, Inc.
(4)    The year ended December 31, 2021 includes pension settlement costs of $2.1 million related to lump-sum distributions to participants in our defined benefit plans as a result of the voluntary retirement program as part of management’s approved restructuring program. The three months and year ended December 31, 2021 include other immaterial unusual or non-recurring items, net.
(5) The year ended December 31, 2020 includes salaries and benefits paid for associates who could not work due to government mandated shutdowns, fringe benefits paid for furloughed associates, spoiled raw materials, incremental costs to support remote work and the cost of additional health and safety equipment of $13.5 million. The three months and year ended December 31, 2020 also include pension settlement costs of $2.1 million and $7.2 million, respectively, related to lump-sum distributions to participants in our defined benefit plans as a result of the voluntary retirement program as part of management’s approved restructuring program, as well as other immaterial unusual or non-recurring items, net.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, as forecasted for 2022, to the closest corresponding GAAP measure, net income, is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability and low visibility of certain charges that may impact our GAAP results on a forward-looking basis, such as the measures and effects of share-based compensation and other extraordinary, unusual or non-recurring items, net.
