FOREST CITY, IOWA, June 21, 2017 - Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE:WGO), a leading United States recreational vehicle manufacturer, today reported financial results for the Company's third quarter of Fiscal 2017.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2017 Results
Revenues for the Fiscal 2017 third quarter ended May 27, 2017, were $476.4 million, an increase of 75.1% compared to $272.1 million for the Fiscal 2016 period. Gross profit was $70.8 million, an increase of 134.0% compared to $30.3 million for the Fiscal 2016 period as gross profit margins expanded 380 basis points driven by a favorable product mix, including the addition of Grand Design products within the overall sales mix. Operating income was $34.9 million for the current quarter, an improvement of 69.3% compared to $20.6 million in the third quarter of last year. Fiscal 2017 third quarter net income was $19.4 million, or $0.61 per diluted share, an increase of 34.3% compared to $14.4 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, in the same period last year. Growth in EPS was impacted by the recognition of $10.2 million of amortization expense during the quarter associated with the Grand Design acquisition. Consolidated adjusted EBITDA was $47.3 million compared to $17.7 million last year, which is an increase of 167.2%.

President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Happe commented, “Our third quarter results continued to reflect the journey we are on here at Winnebago Industries to build a larger, more profitable, full-line RV portfolio. The performance of our new Grand Design division and the associated integration activities continue to meet and even exceed our expectations, and are certainly accelerating our diversification within the still-growing North American RV industry. We delivered strong improvement in gross margin, driven primarily by the overall shift of revenues to our more profitable Towables Segment. We are gaining market share in both of our Towables businesses, including the Winnebago-branded side, and are aggressively investing in new products and further capacity expansion. In the Motorized segment, we are building the foundation for future growth with significant activity around product-line rationalization, enhanced dealer coverage strategies, and focused new product development teams, improving quality and service support processes, and building toward a more nimble and lean manufacturing environment. In addition to solid sales and profitability results, we have also strengthened our balance sheet by reducing debt by $43 million during the quarter. I would like to thank our Winnebago Industries employees for their hard work during the quarter and for their ongoing commitment to provide high-quality products and service to our end customers.”
