CarMax Reports Quarterly Results

Stocks in this article: KMX

SG&A . Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 11% to $254.7 million from $229.9 million in the prior year’s second quarter. The increase primarily reflected the 8% increase in our store base since the beginning of last year’s second quarter (representing the addition of eight stores) and higher growth-related costs resulting from the ramp in our store growth rate. Growth-related costs include pre-opening expenses, relocation expenses, and the cost of building and maintaining management bench strength to support future growth. SG&A per retail unit increased to $2,241 versus $2,197 in the prior year’s quarter mainly due to the costs associated with this year’s higher store growth rate.

Superstore Openings . We plan to open ten superstores in fiscal 2013, double the number opened in fiscal 2012. During the second quarter of fiscal 2013, we opened three used car superstores, entering the Ft. Myers, Florida, market with two stores and opening a third store in the Nashville, Tennessee, market.
