MOTORCAR PARTS OF AMERICA REPORTS FISCAL 2021 SECOND QUARTER

-- Record Sales and Profitability with Continuing Positive Cash Flow From Operations --

Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (Nasdaq: MPAA) today reported results for its fiscal 2021 second quarter ended September 30, 2020 -- reflecting continued favorable sales momentum with increased profitability and positive cash flow from operations.

Net sales for the fiscal 2021 second quarter were $154.7 million compared with $150.4 million for the same period a year earlier. Net sales for the quarter include $12.8 million in core revenue due to a realignment of inventory at two customer distribution centers with expected future sales benefits as product mix changes.

Net income for the fiscal 2021 second quarter was $15.2 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, compared with net income of $6.2 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, a year ago. Additional details of items impacting net income are shown in Exhibit 1.

“Notwithstanding the continued impact of global pandemic challenges, we reported solid results for the quarter and six-month period. The company’s strategic growth initiatives are proceeding as planned – including the launch of our brake caliper production facility, as detailed in a recent announcement – and we are well-positioned in the industry,” said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Motorcar Parts of America.

“In today’s COVID environment, the automobile, more than ever, is the preferable mode of transportation for activities such as work, shopping, appointments, and family vacations. As a consequence, maintenance and repair activities are even more essential. The products we provide are critical to the automobile and the demand for our offerings continue to expand,” Joffe added.

Results for the fiscal second quarter were impacted by approximately $2.0 million on a pre-tax basis, or $0.08 per share on a tax-effected basis, for cost of goods sold and operating expenses related to safety and health initiatives associated with COVID-19. Approximately $1.3 million of the $2.0 million relates to incremental bonuses and wages paid to the company’s dedicated operating employees on the front line. The balance relates to personal protection equipment (PPE) and social distancing initiatives.

Cash generated from operating activities was $16.9 million for the fiscal 2021 second quarter and bank debt less cash for the same period was reduced by $12.3 million to $95.4 million at September 30, 2020.

Gross profit for the fiscal 2021 second quarter was $39.7 million compared with $36.6 million a year earlier. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales for the fiscal 2021 second quarter was 25.7 percent compared with 24.3 percent a year earlier. Additional details of items impacting gross profit are shown in Exhibit 3.

Six-Month Results

Net sales for the fiscal 2021 six-month period were $250.1 million compared with $259.5 million a year earlier. Net sales for the six months ended September 30, 2020 benefited by $12.8 million due to a realignment of inventory at two customer distribution centers with expected future sales benefits as product mix changes, as noted in the quarterly sales discussion.

Net income for the fiscal 2021 six-month period was $12.2 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, compared with net income of $38,000, or $0.00 per diluted share, a year ago. Additional details of items impacting net income are shown in Exhibit 2.

Cash generated from operating activities was $39.3 million during the six months ended September 30, 2020, and bank debt less cash was reduced by $31.1 million.

Gross profit for the fiscal 2021 six-month period was $53.1 million compared with $54.2 million a year earlier. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales for the fiscal 2021 six-month period was 21.2 percent compared with 20.9 percent a year earlier. Additional details of items impacting gross profit are shown in Exhibit 4.

FISCAL 2021 OUTLOOK

“Despite strong performance for the quarter, and continued favorable sales momentum, the company believes it is still not prudent to provide annual sales and gross margin guidance for fiscal 2021.

“As I stated in our 2020 fiscal year-end release, our industry is resilient, and we are continuing to execute our strategic plans for growth and profitability. We are guardedly optimistic about the near- and long-term opportunities as an essential supplier in the $125 billion hard parts industry and look forward to a recovery from this global crisis. In fact, we are resuming our stock buy-back program subject to market conditions, with current availability of $21.3 million under our existing authorization,” 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 (loss) 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 and six months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019. 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.
