-- Record First Quarter Sales to Start New Fiscal Year as Solid Demand For Aftermarket Parts Continues --

Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (Nasdaq: MPAA) today reported results for its fiscal 2022 first quarter ended June 30, 2021 – reflecting record sales for a fiscal first quarter.

Net sales for the fiscal 2022 first quarter increased 56.3 percent to $149.0 million from $95.4 million a year ago, and 36.5 percent from the pre-COVID fiscal first quarter two years ago.

Net income for the fiscal 2022 first quarter was $861,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $3.0 million, or $0.16 per share, a year ago. Details of items impacting net income are shown in Exhibit 1.

“Net sales and profitability for the fiscal first quarter benefitted, despite global supply chain-related disruptions, from continued strong demand for non-discretionary aftermarket parts -- enhanced by the success of our multi-year strategic footprint expansion, including brake-related product line growth,” said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Motorcar Parts of America.

Joffe noted that the first quarter benefitted from the opening up of the economy and stimulus payments. He added that customers purchased products earlier than normal to accommodate the anticipated stronger demand. “The success of the brake caliper program, which is seasonally stronger in the fiscal first quarter, contributed to solid growth early in our fiscal year,” Joffe emphasized.

“In addition, our presence in the electric vehicle market continued to gain momentum driven by increasing demand for battery power emulation, testing and development of inverters, electric motors, and high-speed battery-charging station applications offered by our wholly owned D&V subsidiary,” Joffe added.

Gross profit and operating expenses for the fiscal first quarter were impacted by COVID-19 expenses related to safety, health initiatives, inefficiencies in the supply chain and incrementally higher freight costs of approximately $5.3 million on a pre-tax basis, or $0.20 per share on a tax-effected basis.

Net cash used in operating activities was $4.7 million for the fiscal 2022 first quarter and net debt was $97.6 million at June 30, 2021 compared with $88.9 million at March 31, 2021, reflecting working capital requirements to support the record first quarter sales and inventory increases for anticipated business growth in fiscal 2022.

Gross profit for the fiscal 2022 first quarter was $23.6 million compared with $13.4 million a year earlier. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales for the fiscal 2022 first quarter was 15.8 percent compared with 14.0 percent a year earlier. Gross margin was primarily impacted by higher costs related to COVID-19; brake caliper start-up costs and other product relocation expenses related to the expansion in Mexico, both of which are now nearing completion; and other items, including non-cash and non-economic expenses totaling 7.0 percent, as detailed in Exhibit 2 of the press release. In addition to the above items, gross profit was further impacted by growth initiatives in connection with the expansion of our new product lines, and inflationary costs related to the global pandemic, especially disruptions with worldwide supply chain and logistics services.

“We are encouraged by the strong demand for automotive replacement parts, despite the global challenges related to the pandemic. Our product line expansion strategy continues to gain momentum and we remain focused on sales growth and opportunities to achieve further operating efficiencies, and enhanced profitability,” Joffe said.

Use of Non-GAAP Measure

This press release includes the following non-GAAP measure - EBITDA, which is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a measure of financial performance. The company believes this non-GAAP measure, when considered together with the corresponding GAAP measures, provides useful information to investors and management regarding financial and business trends relating to the company’s results of operations. However, this non-GAAP measure has significant limitations in that it does not reflect all the costs and other items associated with the operation of the company’s business as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company’s non-GAAP measures may be calculated differently and are therefore not comparable to similar measures by other companies. 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 EBITDA to its 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 measures.

Additional Information and 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 additional information and non-GAAP financial measures for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. Among other things, the company uses such additional information and non-GAAP adjusted financial measures in addition to and together with corresponding GAAP measures to help analyze the performance of its business.

The company believes this information helps provide a more complete understanding of the company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting the company's business. However, this information should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, information contained in the company’s financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company’s non-GAAP measures may be calculated differently and are therefore not comparable to similar measures by other companies.

The company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. A reconciliation of EBITDA to net income is provided below along with information regarding such items.
