Adjusted EBITDA$86.5 $70.3 $16.2 23.0 %
_______________________________________________________________________________________


Consolidated net sales for the quarter increased 7.0%, or 13.5% on a constant currency basis. The increase on a constant currency basis was driven primarily by higher sales volumes across all reportable segments.

On a geographic basis, net sales in the United States were higher primarily driven by increases of 27.6% in Titleist golf clubs, 16.2% in Titleist golf balls and 39.7% in Titleist golf gear. The increase in Titleist golf clubs was driven by higher sales volumes of our newly introduced TSR drivers and fairways, Phantom X putters and SM9 wedges. The increase in Titleist golf balls was primarily driven by increased sales volumes of our premium performance models. The increase in Titleist golf gear was driven by higher sales volumes of headwear and golf gloves and higher average selling prices across all categories. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of 5.1% in FootJoy golf wear primarily as a result of lower sales volumes in footwear.

Net sales in regions outside the United States decreased 3.5%, or increased 10.6% on a constant currency basis. In EMEA and Rest of world, net sales increased across all reportable segments. In Korea, net sales increased primarily due to increases in all reportable segments except FootJoy golf wear. In Japan, net sales decreased primarily due to lower sales volumes in Titleist golf clubs due to lower sales volumes of irons and changes in the launch timing of TSR drivers and fairways in this region.

Segment specifics:
8.4% increase in net sales (13.3% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf balls. The increase was primarily due to increased sales volumes of our premium performance models reflecting improvement in certain raw material availability.

13.5% increase in net sales (19.8% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf clubs largely due to higher sales volumes of our newly introduced TSR drivers and fairways launched in the third quarter of 2022, as well as Phantom X putters and SM9 wedges launched earlier in 2022. This increase was partially offset by lower sales volumes of second model year irons and hybrids.

27.0% increase in net sales (35.0% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf gear largely due to higher sales volumes in headwear, golf bag and golf glove product categories and higher average selling prices across all product categories.

4.5% decrease in net sales (2.5% increase on a constant currency basis) in FootJoy golf wear. The increase in constant currency was primarily due to higher sales volumes in the apparel product category, partially offset by decreases in footwear.

Net income attributable to Acushnet Holdings Corp. increased 31.8% to $51.8 million, year over year, primarily as a result of an increase in income from operations, partially offset by increases in interest expense and income tax expense.
Adjusted EBITDA was $86.5 million, up 23.0% year over year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 15.5% for the third quarter versus 13.5% for the prior year period.

Consolidated net sales for the first nine months increased 5.5%, or 10.5% on a constant currency basis. The increase on a constant currency basis was driven by growth across all reportable segments.

On a geographic basis, net sales increased in the United States across all reportable segments as a result of increases of 13.9% in Titleist golf clubs, 5.2% in FootJoy golf wear, 2.7% in Titleist golf balls and 9.4% in Titleist golf gear. The increase in Titleist golf clubs was primarily driven by higher sales volumes of SM9 wedges, T-Series irons and Phantom X putters. The increase in FootJoy golf wear was primarily driven by higher average selling prices across all product categories except apparel. The increase in Titleist golf balls was primarily due to higher average selling prices. The increase in Titleist golf gear was primarily driven by higher average selling prices across all product categories.

Net sales in regions outside the United States were up 3.4%, or 13.8% 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 and Rest of world, net sales increased across all reportable segments. In Japan, net sales decreased primarily due to lower sales volumes in Titleist golf clubs due to changes in the launch timing of TSR drivers and fairways in this region.

Segment specifics:
0.6% increase in net sales (4.2% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf balls. The increase was primarily driven by higher average selling prices.

7.8% increase in net sales (12.4% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf clubs largely due to higher sales volumes of our SM9 wedges launched in the first quarter of 2022, T-Series irons launched in the third quarter of 2021 and Phantom X putters launched in the second quarter of 2022. This increase was partially offset by lower sales volumes of second model year drivers, fairways and hybrids.

4.7% increase in net sales (10.2% increase on a constant currency basis) of Titleist golf gear primarily due to higher average selling prices across all product categories, partially offset by a sales volume decrease in golf bags due to supply chain and fulfillment constraints.

9.8% increase in net sales (15.3% increase on a constant currency basis) in FootJoy golf wear primarily due to increased sales volumes across all product categories and higher average selling prices in footwear.

Net income attributable to Acushnet Holdings Corp. decreased 2.9% to $199.3 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 $313.0 million, down 6.1% year over year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 17.2% for the first nine months versus 19.3% for the prior year period.
Cash Dividend and Share Repurchase

During the quarter, the Company repurchased 869,368 shares of common stock on the open market at an average price of $47.82 for an aggregate of $41.6 million. On August 30, 2022, the Company amended and restated its agreement with Magnus Holdings Co., Ltd. (“Magnus”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Fila Holdings Corp., to increase the aggregate dollar amount of shares of its common stock that it will purchase from Magnus from $75.0 million to $100.0 million.

2022 Outlook

On a constant currency basis, consolidated net sales are now expected to increase 9.0% to 10.2%, up from the previous range of 6.8% to 9.1%.

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 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.
