Motorcar Parts of America Reports Fiscal 2019 Second Quarter Results

January 8, 2019 at 8:00 AM EST

-- Record Sales for Quarter and Six Months --

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (Nasdaq: MPAA) today announced results for its fiscal 2019 second quarter ended September 30, 2018 – reflecting record sales for both the quarter and six months on a reported and adjusted basis.

Net sales for the fiscal 2019 second quarter increased 16.0 percent to $127.9 million from $110.3 million for the same period a year earlier, predominantly as a result of increases in the company’s rotating electrical business.

Adjusted net sales for the fiscal 2019 second quarter increased 14.5 percent to $130.2 million from $113.7 million a year earlier.

“We are encouraged by our new business wins and revitalization of demand for our products at the consumer level -- both of which support our optimism and expectations for continued growth,” said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

In addition, Joffe indicated the company expects strong sales contributions in the next fiscal year from its existing and new product offerings.

Net income for the fiscal 2019 second quarter was $3.5 million, or $0.18 per diluted share – reflecting the impact of the items listed below compared with $5.6 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, a year ago.

Adjusted net income for the fiscal 2019 second quarter was $11.5 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, compared with $10.1 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, a year earlier.

The results for the quarter and gross margin were impacted by three items totaling $10.3 million.

  • Customer allowances related to new business of $2.2 million
    °  Up-front one-time costs of $1.2 million related to new business
    °  Core buyback premium amortization of $1.0 million related to new business (Core buyback premium amortization relates to the refundable premium paid or payable to customers for the core value in finished goods on their shelves in connection with new business. The company previously recorded the full amount of the core buyback premiums as a reduction to revenue at the inception of a new customer relationship. As described in “Prior Financial Information” paragraph below, this historical policy was concluded to be a misapplication of GAAP. The company has now revised the application of GAAP, resulting in the amortization of the full amount of the premium costs over a period, typically ranging from six to eight years).
  • The revaluation for cores on customers' shelves resulted in a non-cash write-down of $6.2 million, which does not affect the reimbursable amount for the full value of cores on the customers’ shelves should business with the customer be discontinued.
  • Transition costs of $1.8 million associated with the expansion of manufacturing and distribution capacity to support increased demand for the company’s existing product lines and its recently announced new brake product lines.

Gross profit for the fiscal 2019 second quarter was $25.7 million compared with $26.0 million a year earlier.  Gross profit as a percentage of net sales for the fiscal 2019 second quarter was 20.1 percent compared with 23.6 percent a year earlier.

Adjusted gross profit for the fiscal 2019 second quarter was $36.0 million compared with $32.0 million a year ago.  Adjusted gross profit as a percentage of adjusted net sales for the three months was 27.6 percent compared with 28.2 percent a year earlier, impacted by higher freight related costs compared with the prior year and stock adjustment accruals for future update orders.

Six-Month Results

Net sales for the fiscal 2019 six-month period increased 7.1 percent to $219.6 million from $205.0 million a year earlier.

Adjusted net sales for the fiscal 2019 six-month period increased 7.1 percent to $224.0 million from $209.2 million last year.

Net loss for the fiscal 2019 six-month period was $2.0 million, or $0.10 per share, compared with net income of $13.4 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, in fiscal 2018.

Adjusted net income for the fiscal 2019 six-month period was $14.6 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, compared with $18.6 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, in fiscal 2018.

Gross profit for the fiscal 2019 six-month period was $42.1 million compared with $51.9 million a year earlier.  Gross profit as a percentage of net sales for the fiscal 2019 first half was 19.2 percent compared with 25.3 percent a year earlier.

Adjusted gross profit for the fiscal 2019 six-month period was $58.9 million compared with $60.1 million a year ago.  Adjusted gross profit as a percentage of adjusted net sales for the six months was 26.3 percent compared with 28.7 percent a year earlier, impacted by higher freight related costs compared with the prior year, stock adjustment accruals for future update orders and lower absorption of overhead costs.

New Acquisition Pending

“In addition to the company’s recent acquisition of E&M Power, we expect to close another strategic tuck-in acquisition this week which enhances our existing product line offerings,” Joffe said.

Updated Fiscal 2019 Guidance

Motorcar Parts of America reaffirms its annual adjusted sales guidance of between 6.5% and 8.5% growth year over year, with expectations of reaching the higher end.  Adjusted gross margin for fiscal 2019 is now estimated to be at the lower end of our guidance of 27.0% to 30.0%.

Stock Repurchase Authorization

Under the authorized share repurchase program, as of September 30, 2018, $15.7 million of the $37.0 million common stock authorization has been purchased and $21.3 million is available to repurchase shares.  Motorcar Parts of America currently has 18.8 million shares outstanding.

Revenue Recognition

Effective April 1, 2018, the company adopted Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, ("ASC 606") using the full retrospective transition method. As a result, the prior year three and six months ended September 30, 2017 were revised to reflect the adoption of the new revenue recognition accounting standards.  The effects of the adoption were a decrease to previously reported revenues for the three and six months ended September 30, 2017 of $592,000 and $136,000, respectively. The revenue changes were accompanied by related changes to cost of goods sold - a decrease to previously reported cost of goods sold for the three and six months ended September 30, 2017 of $378,000 and $759,000, respectively.

Also, as a result of the adoption of ASC 606 and the resultant changes in company policy, the effect on the consolidated balance sheets was to create contract asset and contract liability accounts to document those balance sheet items being impacted by the new revenue recognition requirements.  Additional information will be available in the company’s Form 10-Q filing later today.

Prior Financial Information

The company has revised its financial statements for each of the three years in the period ended March 31, 2018 and for the three months ended June 30, 2018.  As of June 30, 2018, the cumulative error for all periods previously reported was an understatement of net income of $2,938,000.  For further information, please see the company’s September 30, 2018 Form 10-Q filed later today.  As of June 30, 2018, the cumulative impact to non-GAAP adjusted net income for all periods previously reported was an understatement of $1,220,000.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP measures - adjusted net sales, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin, which are not measures of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as alternatives to net sales, net income (loss), EBITDA, income from operations, gross profit or gross profit margin as a measure of financial performance.  The Company believes these non-GAAP measures, when considered together with the corresponding GAAP measures, provide useful information to investors and management regarding financial and business trends relating to the company’s results of operations.  However, these non-GAAP measures have significant limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of the company’s business as determined in accordance with GAAP.  Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance in accordance with GAAP.  For a reconciliation of adjusted net sales, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin to their corresponding GAAP measures, see the financial tables included in this press release.  Also, refer to our Form 8-K to which this release is attached, and other filings we make with the SEC, for further information regarding these adjustments.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company has included the following non-GAAP adjusted financial measures in this press release and in the webcast to discuss the Company's financial results for the three and six months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. Each of these non-GAAP adjusted financial measures is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude certain expenses and gains.  Among other things, the Company uses such non-GAAP adjusted financial measures in addition to and in conjunction with corresponding GAAP measures to help analyze the performance of its business. 

These non-GAAP adjusted financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company's operations that, when viewed with the GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of the Company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting the Company's business. However, these non-GAAP adjusted financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
