FAIRHAVEN, MA – August 4, 2022
– Acushnet Holdings Corp. (NYSE: GOLF) ("Acushnet" or, the "Company"), the global leader in the design, development, manufacture and distribution of performance-driven golf products, today reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.
“The Company continues to build momentum, with second quarter sales increasing 11% in constant currency from growth across all segments. These results reflect the Company’s commitment to product innovation, healthy consumer demand across our portfolio and the unwavering dedication of our associates,” stated David Maher, Acushnet Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

“Our supply chain is strengthening, particularly with respect to golf balls and golf clubs, and we are encouraged by our first half performance both in the marketplace and across golf’s pyramid of influence,” Maher continued. “Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls and Vokey wedges were trusted by the winners of all 4 men’s Major Championships in 2022, while Titleist drivers and Scotty Cameron putters were used by 3 of the 4 Major champions.

“Given our strong sales performance in the first half we are raising our full year sales outlook, while maintaining our adjusted EBITDA guidance to reflect currency headwinds, higher freight costs, and investments we are making to expand distribution and custom fulfillment capabilities for apparel and gear products. We believe these investments will support future growth, reduce lead times and pay long-term dividends for our trade partners and shareholders.”

Adjusted EBITDA$106.5 $127.8 $(21.3)(16.7)%
_______________________________________________________________________________________


Consolidated net sales for the quarter increased 5.4%, or 10.6% on a constant currency basis. The increase on a constant currency basis was driven by growth across all segments primarily as a result of higher sales volumes and higher average selling prices.

On a geographic basis, net sales in the United States were higher across all reportable segments primarily driven by increases of 17.9% in Titleist golf clubs and 17.8% in FootJoy golf wear. The increase in Titleist golf clubs was primarily driven by higher sales volumes of our newly introduced SM9 wedges, T Series irons and Phantom X putters, partially offset by lower sales volumes of drivers, fairways and hybrids. The increase in FootJoy golf wear was primarily due to higher average selling prices and sales volumes in footwear.

Net sales in regions outside the United States decreased 0.8%, or increased 9.7% on a constant currency basis. In Korea, net sales increased primarily due to increases in FootJoy golf wear, Titleist golf gear and Titleist golf clubs. In EMEA and Rest of World, net sales increased across all reportable segments.

Segment specifics:
0.5% decrease in net sales (3.3% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf balls. The increase on a constant currency basis reflects improvement of certain raw material availability.

7.5% increase in net sales (12.4% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf clubs largely due to higher sales volumes of our newly introduced T-Series irons, SM9 wedges and Phantom X putters. This increase was partially offset by lower sales volumes of drivers, fairways and hybrids which were all in their second model year and were also impacted by component shortages and delays.

6.3% increase in net sales (12.3% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf gear largely due to higher sales volumes and higher average selling prices. Sales volumes were higher across all product categories except golf bags, which were impacted by supply chain and fulfillment constraints.

8.1% increase in net sales (13.7% increase on a constant currency basis) in FootJoy golf wear due to higher net sales across all product categories, primarily in footwear due to higher sales volumes and average selling prices.

Net income attributable to Acushnet Holdings Corp. decreased 18.0% to $66.5 million, year over year, primarily as a result of a decrease in income from operations, partially offset by a decrease in income tax expense.
Adjusted EBITDA was $106.5 million, down 16.7% year over year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 16.2% for the second quarter versus 20.4% for the prior year period.

Summary of First Six Months 2022 Financial Results
Six months ended June 30,Increase/(Decrease)Constant Currency Increase/(Decrease)

Net sales$1,264.7 $1,205.7 $59.0 4.9 %$110.3 9.1 %

_______________________________________________________________________________________


Consolidated net sales for the first six months increased 4.9%, or 9.1% on a constant currency basis. The increase in constant currency was primarily related to an increase in FootJoy golf wear driven by higher sales volumes across all product categories and an increase in Titleist golf clubs primarily driven by higher sales volumes of our newly introduced SM9 wedges, T-Series irons and Phantom X putters.

On a geographic basis, net sales increased in the United States primarily as a result of increases of 10.0% in FootJoy golf wear and 7.9% in Titleist golf clubs. The increase in FootJoy golf wear was primarily due to higher average selling prices and sales volumes in footwear. The increase in Titleist golf clubs was primarily driven by higher sales volumes of our newly introduced SM9 wedges, T-Series irons and Phantom X putters. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of 3.4% in Titleist golf balls, primarily as a result of limited availability of certain raw materials.

Net sales in regions outside the United States were up 6.3%, or 15.1% on a constant currency basis. In EMEA, net sales increased across all reportable segments, primarily due to the adverse impact of government-ordered shutdowns in this region in the first quarter of 2021. In Korea, net sales increased in all reportable segments, except Titleist golf gear, which was impacted by supply chain constraints. In Japan, net sales decreased primarily due to supply chain and fulfillment constraints. In Rest of World, net sales increased across all reportable segments.

Segment specifics:
2.9% decrease in net sales (0.1% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf balls. The increase on a constant currency basis reflects improvement of certain raw material availability.

5.3% increase in net sales (9.2% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf clubs largely due to higher sales volumes of our newly introduced SM9 wedges, T-Series irons and Phantom X putters. This increase was partially offset by lower sales volumes of drivers, hybrids and fairways which were all in their second model year and were also impacted by component shortages and delays.

4.1% decrease in net sales (0.4% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf gear. The increase on a constant currency basis was primarily due to higher average selling prices across all product categories, partially offset by sales volume decreases in golf bags and headwear product categories due to supply chain and fulfillment constraints.

15.8% increase in net sales (20.8% increase on a constant currency basis) in FootJoy golf wear primarily due to increased sales volumes and higher average selling prices across all product categories.

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 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 (income); 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 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.

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.
