Motorcar Parts of America Reports Record Fiscal 2015 First Quarter

August 11, 2014

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (Nasdaq:MPAA) today reported record results for its fiscal 2015 first quarter ended June 30, 2014 – reflecting continued growth of its rotating electrical and wheel hub business.

Net sales for the fiscal 2015 first quarter increased 25.3 percent to $63.0 million from $50.2 million for the same period a year earlier. The increase in net sales was due to growth in both rotating electrical products and the benefits of a full quarter of wheel hub sales, which commenced in late June 2013. Net income for the quarter was $3.9 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared with a net income of $101.0 million, or $6.91 per diluted share, a year ago, which reflects a gain on the deconsolidation of the company's discontinued undercar business.

Excluding certain costs and non-cash expenses noted in the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables below, adjusted net income for the fiscal 2015 first quarter increased 45.6 percent to $4.7 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, from $3.2 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the same period a year earlier – based on a 9.0 percent increase in the diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding.

Gross profit for the fiscal 2015 first quarter was $17.8 million compared with $16.0 million a year earlier. Gross profit as a percentage of sales was 28.3 percent compared with 31.9 percent a year earlier. Adjusted gross profit was $19.2 million compared with $16.4 million a year ago, representing a 17.1 percent increase. Adjusted gross profit as a percentage of sales for the first quarter was 30.2 percent compared with 32.1 percent a year earlier, primarily reflecting product mix.

"Fiscal 2015 is off to an excellent start, supported by strong organic growth in all product lines, an aging vehicle population and positive operating synergies. Our team's ongoing focus on achieving the highest customer service levels continues to distinguish our organization. We look forward to solid momentum as the new fiscal year evolves – supported by strong organic growth in both the rotating electrical and wheel hub business, as well as contributions from the introduction of our most recent product line," said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Motorcar Parts of America.

Brake Master Cylinders

Subsequent to the end of the fiscal first quarter, Motorcar Parts of America introduced brake master cylinders as a new product line and commenced shipments.

"The brake master cylinder product line expansion follows the introduction last June of wheel hubs. Like rotating electrical and wheel hubs, brake master cylinders are non-discretionary with strong growth dynamics. We anticipate solid sales and profit contributions from this new product line," Joffe said.

Industry sources estimate the market size for master cylinders to be approximately $500 million at the user level.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

We define adjusted net income (loss) as net income (loss) adjusted for certain items related to thecompany'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 Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income (loss) to net income (loss) see the financial tables included in the press release.

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, 2014 and 2013. 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.
