The Forest Park, Iowa-based company saw earnings increase 11% year over year to $1.14 per share from $1.02, which the company attributed to a more favorable tax rate. That was good enough to beat Street expectations of $1.01 per share. Net income was $36.2 million, 11% higher than $32.5 million a year earlier.
“We are pleased to deliver another quarter of solid consolidated results highlighted by continued margin expansion and market share gains,” CEO Michael Happe said. “Winnebago Industries’ third quarter results are a testament to the strength and resiliency of our brand portfolio amid a challenging and highly competitive RV market.
