Motorcar Parts of America Reports Fiscal 2017 First Quarter Results

Product Line Expansion Supports Future Growth Opportunities

/EIN News/ -- LOS ANGELES, Aug. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (Nasdaq:MPAA) today reported results for its fiscal 2017 first quarter, reflecting record profitability.  Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the company announced the launch of its new brake power booster product line and the acquisition of a turbocharger business.

Net sales for the fiscal 2017 first quarter were $85.4 million compared with $85.8 million for the same period a year earlier. The company’s sales performance for the fiscal 2017 first quarter reflects continued strength of its rotating electrical and wheel hub business, as well as increased contributions from the company’s emerging master cylinder product line – partially offset by certain customer allowances and return accruals related to new business.

All results labeled as “adjusted” in this press release are non-GAAP measures as discussed more fully below under the heading “Use of Non-GAAP Measures.”

Adjusted net sales for the fiscal 2017 first quarter were $93.8 million compared with $86.6 million a year earlier.

Net income for the fiscal 2017 first quarter was $7.5 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1.9 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, a year ago.

Adjusted net income for the fiscal 2017 first quarter was $10.1 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, compared with $8.4 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the same period a year earlier.

Gross profit for the fiscal 2017 first quarter was $20.4 million compared with $26.0 million a year earlier.  Gross profit as a percentage of sales for the fiscal 2017 first quarter was 23.9 percent compared with 30.3 percent a year earlier, primarily due to customer allowances related to new business.

Adjusted gross profit for the fiscal first quarter was $30.3 million compared with $26.8 million a year ago.  Adjusted gross profit as a percentage of sales for the three months was 32.3 percent compared with 30.9 percent a year earlier.

“Results for the quarter reflect continued strength across all product lines – supported by an aging vehicle population, increased miles driven and related factors, all of which continue to contribute to overall growth in the aftermarket industry,” said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Motorcar Parts of America.

“Our position within the aftermarket industry continues to grow – which we expect will be enhanced by our new brake power booster product line and our future turbocharger launch, as well as additional opportunities to introduce other complementary non-discretionary parts.  As always, we thank our entire team for their daily commitment to excellence, customer service and our company,” Joffe said.

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.

Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer, and David Lee, chief financial officer, will host an investor conference call today at 6:30 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 months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015. 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 months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 are as follows:
