Chris Constable, CEO of Brownie’s Marine Group, added, “While the headline sales growth number is not as high as it was in the earlier part of the year, that’s purely a result of the global supply chain constraints that obviously we cannot control. The demand for our products continues to grow, and we believe that will be reflected in future quarters as these global logistics issues get sorted out.”
Robert M. Carmichael, President and Chairman of the Board added, “We are also excited to have officially completed the acquisition of Submersible Systems and start working with their team to help grow their operations. It’s the first major acquisition we have made in quite some time, and the first step in an M&A strategy we have put together to find unique companies in our industry that we can help scale and fit into the larger company we are building. We are continuing to pursue this strategy aggressively, and we are looking forward to announcing more about these efforts over the next several quarters.”
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes certain financial measures that exclude the impact of certain items and therefore have not been calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). We report adjusted net income (loss) to measure our overall results because we believe it better reflects our net results by excluding the impact of non-cash equity-based compensation. We believe the presentation of adjusted net income (loss) enhances our investors’ overall understanding of the financial performance of our business.
We believe that investors should have access to the same set of tools that we use in analyzing our results. This non-GAAP measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results.
