  • Net sales increased 32% year over year to $157.5 million.

  • Gross profit increased 31% to $53.3 million, with gross margin down 40 basis points to 33.9% driven in part to continued pressure from inbound and outbound freight as well as a shift in mix in branded products, which typically carry a higher selling price but lower gross margin percentage.

  • Net income was $2.1 million or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.6 million or $0.03 per diluted share.

  • Record Adjusted EBITDA of $8.3 million vs. $5.6 million.

  • Announced $30 million in stock repurchase plan.

  • Management reiterates long term targets of 20-25% compounded revenue growth and 8-10% EBITDA margin.

Management Commentary

"We saw another record-breaking quarter with revenues of $157.5 million," said Lev Peker, CEO of CarParts.com. "We also achieved a record breaking $8.3 million of Adjusted EBITDA."

"A large contributor to our revenue growth was due to an increase in DC capacity since Grand Prairie was fully operational. I'm proud to announce that we are expanding the space there by 156k square feet and we have also signed a lease to open a new 180k square foot Jacksonville, Florida distribution center. Once these two facilities are added to our network, our total DC square footage will exceed 1.2 million square feet."

"We are also announcing a share repurchase program of up to $30 million. The program gives us a flexible way to return value to our shareholders when we see unwarranted volatility in our stock and we intend to be opportunistic with repurchases. An important driver of our decision making will of course be the potential ROI of any dollar spent; whether it's an investment into our shares, inventory, supply chain or technology."

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Net sales in the second quarter of 2021 were $157.5 million compared to $118.9 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase was primarily driven by the expanded capacity coming from our Grand Prairie distribution center and the additional product offering of branded inventory from our partner network.

Gross profit in the second quarter increased 31% to $53.3 million compared to $40.8 million in the second quarter last year, with gross margin down 40 bps to 33.9% compared to 34.3%. The decrease in gross margin was in part due to continued pressure from inbound and outbound freight as well as a shift in mix in branded products, which typically carry a higher selling price but lower gross margin percentage.

Total operating expenses in the second quarter were $51.0 million compared to $38.7 million in the second quarter last year in line with our growth in sales.

Net income in the second quarter increased to $2.1 million compared to $1.6 million in the second quarter last year. The increase was driven by the significant sales growth.

Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter increased to $8.3 million compared to $5.6 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase was driven by the significant sales growth.

On July 3, 2021, the Company had no revolver debt, no outstanding trade letters of credit ("LCs") and a cash balance of $33.1 million, compared to no revolver debt, no outstanding trade LCs and a $35.8 million cash balance at prior fiscal year-end January 2, 2021.

On July 27, 2021, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a new stock repurchase program under which the Company may purchase up to $30 million of the Company's common stock from time to time. The repurchases of common stock may be executed through open market purchases, block trades, the implementation of a 10b5-1 plan, and/or any other available methods. The amount and timing of repurchases will depend upon market conditions and other corporate considerations. The share repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of stock, and it may be terminated, modified, or suspended at any time at the Company's discretion.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Regulation G, and other provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, define and prescribe the conditions for use of certain non-GAAP financial information. We provide "Adjusted EBITDA," which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA consists of net income (loss) before (a) interest expense, net; (b) income tax provision; (c) depreciation and amortization expense; (d) amortization of intangible assets; and (e) share-based compensation expense. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) is provided below.

The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides important supplemental information to management and investors. This non-GAAP financial measure reflects an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company's operations that, when viewed with the GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliation to corresponding GAAP financial measures, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company's business and results of operations.

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as one measure of the Company's operating performance because it assists in comparing the Company's operating performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of stock compensation expense and the costs associated with the customs issue, as well as other items that we do not believe are representative of our ongoing operating performance. Internally, this non-GAAP measure is also used by management for planning purposes, including the preparation of internal budgets; for allocating resources to enhance financial performance; and for evaluating the effectiveness of operational strategies. The Company also believes that analysts and investors use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate the ongoing operations of companies in our industry.

This non-GAAP financial measure is used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. Management strongly encourages investors to review the Company's consolidated financial statements in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. In addition, the Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from the Company's non-GAAP measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are all unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains statements which are based on management's current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company's business and its industry, as well as certain assumptions made by the Company. These statements are forward looking statements for the purposes of the safe harbor provided by Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Words such as "anticipates," "could," "expects," "intends," "plans," "potential," "believes," "predicts," "projects," "seeks," "estimates," "may," "will," "would," "will likely continue" and variations of these words or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding our future operating results and financial condition, our potential growth and our ability to expand and improve our product offerings, and repurchases by us of outstanding shares of our common stock. We undertake no obligation to revise or update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, our actual results could differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statements as a result of various factors.

Important factors that may cause such a difference include, but are not limited to, competitive pressures, our dependence on search engines to attract customers, demand for the Company's products, the online market and channel mix for aftermarket auto parts, the economy in general, increases in commodity and component pricing that would increase the Company's product costs, the operating restrictions in its credit agreement, the weather, the impact of the customs issues and any other factors discussed in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including the Risk Factors contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10–K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10–Q, which are available at www.carparts.com/investor and the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. You are urged to consider these factors carefully in evaluating the forward-looking statements in this release and are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements, which are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. Unless otherwise required by law, the Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as result of new information, future events or otherwise.
