Motorcar Parts of America Reports Strong Fiscal 2014 Second Quarter Results

Sales Up 14.8 Percent for Quarter

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (Nasdaq:MPAA) today reported results for its fiscal 2014 second quarter and six-month period — reflecting the first full quarter of contributions from the company's new wheel hub product line.

Net sales for the fiscal 2014 second quarter increased 14.8 percent to $66.2 million from $57.7 million for the same period last year. Net income for the same period was $2.2 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $8.9 million, or $0.62 per share, a year ago — reflecting the impact of the company's discontinued subsidiaries.

Excluding certain costs and non-cash expenses noted in the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables below, adjusted net income for the second fiscal quarter was $5.3 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, compared with $5.5 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the same period a year earlier.

Gross profit for the second fiscal quarter was $19.7 million compared with $20.1 million a year earlier. Adjusted for wheel hubs start-up costs and fees related to discontinued subsidiaries, gross profit was $20.7 million compared with $20.1 million for the prior period. Gross profit as a percentage of sales was lower on a year-over-year comparison, due primarily to the addition of wheel hub sales in June 2013 and a lower than normal overall cost of manufacturing in the same quarter a year earlier.

Net sales for the six months increased 11.5 percent to $116.4 million from $104.5 million a year ago. Net income for the fiscal 2014 six-month period was $103.1 million, or $7.06 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $18.8 million, or $1.32 per share, a year ago. Results for the 2014 first half reflect a one-time gain on the deconsolidation of assets and liabilities of the company's discontinued subsidiaries realized in the first fiscal quarter of 2014.

Excluding certain costs and non-cash expenses noted in the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables below, adjusted net income for the fiscal six-month period was $8.6 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, compared with $7.4 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, for the same period a year earlier.    

"The automotive aftermarket industry remains strong, particularly for rotating electrical products and other non-discretionary parts.  For the second half of fiscal 2014, we anticipate continued momentum in our base business, enhanced by further growth of our wheel hub assembly business," said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Motorcar Parts of America.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

We define adjusted net income (loss) as net income (loss) adjusted for certain items related to the company's discontinued subsidiaries, as well as financing, consulting and other fees. We define Adjusted EBITDA as adjusted net income (loss), plus interest expense, income tax expense and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted net income (loss) does not reflect many items that affect the company's net income (loss), including many items related to company's discontinued subsidiaries. Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of a number of items that affect the company's net income, including financing costs and matters related to the company's discontinued subsidiaries. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income (loss) are not measures of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or income from operations as a measure of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income (loss) have significant limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results as reported under GAAP. For a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income (loss) see the financial tables included in the press release.

Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer, and David Lee, chief financial officer, will host an investor conference call today at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time to discuss the company's financial results and operations.

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, 2013 and 2012. 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.

Income statement information for the three and six months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 are as follows:
