WINNEBAGO INDUSTRIES ANNOUNCES FOURTH QUARTER AND FISCAL 2015 RESULTS
-- Full Year Fiscal 2015 Operating Cash Flow Increased by 95% Versus Last Year --
-- Board of Directors Approved 11% Increase in Quarterly Cash Dividend to $0.10 Per Share --

FOREST CITY, IOWA, October 15, 2015 - Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE:WGO), a leading United States recreation vehicle manufacturer, today reported financial results for the Company's fourth quarter and full year Fiscal 2015.

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2015 Results
Revenues for the Fiscal 2015 fourth quarter ended August 29, 2015, were $251.0 million, an increase of 2.1%, versus $245.9 million for the Fiscal 2014 period. Operating income was $16.9 million for the current quarter compared to $18.3 million in the fourth quarter of last year. Fiscal 2015 fourth quarter net income was $11.7 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, versus $12.9 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, in the same period last year.
    
Fourth quarter gross margin improved sequentially from the third quarter due in part to improved manufacturing efficiencies within the motorized group. However, year-over-year fourth quarter gross margin declined due to unfavorable trends in warranty expense, the establishment of a warranty recall reserve and costs related to motorized manufacturing inefficiencies. These costs were partly offset by the reinstatement of tariff rebates on certain imported materials, lower commodity related expense, greater absorption of fixed costs and the realization of cost-saving benefits related to the Company’s strategic sourcing initiative.

Operating expenses increased in the Fiscal 2015 fourth quarter compared to last year due mainly to incremental general and administrative expenses associated with two previously disclosed strategic initiatives related to ERP implementation and strategic sourcing, as well as costs related to a retirement agreement with the Company’s former CEO.

Fourth quarter Fiscal 2015 revenue growth year over year was driven by improved towables revenues of 36.7%, as a result of a 26.3% average selling price (ASP) increase and unit growth of 7.5%. Compared to last year, fourth quarter Fiscal 2015 motorized unit shipment volumes were essentially flat.

Year over year, motorhome retail registrations increased 28% in the Fiscal 2015 fourth quarter and 16% on a rolling 12-month basis, while towable retail registrations increased 21% in the Fiscal 2015 fourth quarter and 14% on a rolling 12-month basis, based on internally reported retail information.

Full Year Fiscal 2015 Results
Fiscal 2015 revenues were $976.5 million, an increase of 3.3% from $945.2 million for Fiscal 2014. The sales growth was primarily comprised of motorhome unit growth of 3.9% and towables ASP and unit growth of 15.9% and 6.4%, respectively. Net income for Fiscal 2015 was $41.2 million, or $1.52 per diluted share, versus $45.1 million, or $1.64 per diluted share, last year. During Fiscal 2015, investments related to the new ERP system and strategic sourcing initiatives aggregated $7.0 million, of which $3.8 million was expensed.
